Lilac look

I've been dying to try out my MUA eyeshadows since i bought them, but as i'm off work i haven't really had anything to put make-up for, as i've just been doing the wife chores! Today i needed to stock up on food and thought i'd try them out!! I opted to add a little lilac into my life, even though, it's not a typical autumn colour!

This is the MUA eyeshadow shade 4 which as you can see is gorgeous! I'm not usually one to add colour to my eyes but lilacs and purples are great colours for brown eyes, so i thought i'd give it a go.

This is shade 11 and i think these 2 go really nicely together. I used the lilac all over my lid and along my lower lash line and then used the darker colour just to define my crease a little bit, nothing to heavy or noticeable.

 As you can see, these shadows do not disappoint, they are really pigmented and i didn't have a lot of fall out when applying them. I am SO in love with this lilac colour, i don't think these pictures do it justice! 
It's the perfect way to add a little colour in without being overpowering. It has beautiful shine and brightening that i didn't even need to use a lighter/brighter colour on my inner corner, this one does it all.

I purposely wore these shadows all day without a eyeshadow primer to see how they lasted. They were amazing! No creasing, smudging or fading. I am so impressed with these and been wearing them everyday, i would say they are similar quality to MAC shadows, just without the price tag! Bargain!

I'm wearing this look in my latest video so take a look at how they look overall!

If this does not persuaded you to pick some up, i don't know what will! (Disclaimer; i have not been paid to do this post or been sent the products to review, i just love them THAT much!)

What's your favourite colour from their range? What do you think of lilac shadows?
