MUA – Eyeshadow Trio in Blue Babe
This post may contain affiliate links.
I recently purchased a huge MUA make-up haul, and included within it was this Trio Eyeshadow in Blue Babe. I really love MUA’s budget make-up and it’s great for trying out new colours and trends if you don’t want to shell out a lot of money.
Want to see what else I bought in my MUA haul? Have a look here.
This MUA Eyeshadow Trio palette consists of three eyeshadow colours – a dark blue powder shadow with grey undertones, a bright pale blue powder shadow and finally a white/cream coloured powder shadow with a golden shimmer. Nestled inside the palette there is also a small double-ended foam applicator – I don’t usually mind using these applicators as I find you get less powder drop-off than from a brush, but the thin end on this one is very difficult to use.
I love the fact that on the base of the palette there is a little diagram which suggests where on the eye you apply each colour – good for make-up beginners.
The diagram suggests you apply the palest shimmery shadow under the brow bone, the bright pale blue all over the eyelid in the crease and then use the darker blue to define the outer corner of the eyelids. The image below shows how the diagram translates into real life!
I have worn these shadows a couple of times now and find that they will last for quite a long while without any creasing of the powder in the eye socket, which is great. The image below shows the 3 Blue Babe colours more clearly.
Blue eyeshadows really suit those with brown eyes, although I have blue eyes and I think this Eyeshadow Trio in Blue Babe still looks great on me. For or a more dramatic evening look you could use the dark blue shadow all over the eyelid and then finish off with a thick slick of black eyeliner.
UPDATE 23rd Jan 2018 – Sadly MUA have discontinued their Eyeshadow Trios in favour of larger palettes. Check out their huge collection of eyeshadow palettes, there are some great ones available, starting from just £3.50 for 6 eyeshadows, right up to 25 eyeshadow palettes for just £8.
