MUA MakeUp Academy Eyeshadow Palette Going For Gold

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the eyeshadow palettes I got for ¬£1 during MUA’s winter sale – MUA MakeUp Academy Going For Gold. If my memory serves me right, this palette was launched around the time of the 2012 London Olympics.
MUA Going For Gold
The Going For Gold palette contains ten shimmery eyeshadows in gold, silver and bronze shades. My favourite shades are 1, 3, 7 and 9 – the safe ones. ūüôā In terms of quality, these eyeshadows are exceptional. The colour payoff is insane, the eyeshadows stay put and there’s hardly any fallout.

Whilst I think that some of these eyeshadows are a bit too intense for my taste (bold golds, I’m looking at you), I believe that I’ll find a way to make all the shades work for me. If you like this palette, it’s available at MUA’s online store for ¬£4.

Manhattan Multi Effect Eyeshadow 92W Caramel Fudge, Manhattan Intense Effect Eyeshadow 21A Devil Honey

Hi there! This post is about two random eyeshadows which I bought as a set of two in Poundland (could have been Poundworld – I’m not sure). The shimmery brown one is Manhattan Multi Effect Eyeshadow 92W Caramel Fudge, and the sparkly golden one is Manhattan Intense Effect Eyeshadow 21A Devil Honey.

(I know, the swatch photo isn’t my best, but Devil Honey simply wouldn’t show without flash. But you can click on the photo to enlarge it.) In terms of quality I’m very happy with these eyeshadows. They’re easy incredibly silky, they last long, the colours are intense and easily blendable. I love to mix these two with other shades from my Sleek Au Naturel palette because these two would fit right in.

I’ve seen lots of different Manhattan products at the bargain stores recently. If you keep your eyes peeled, you might not only find single items for ¬£1, but also sets of two products for ¬£1.
