MUA – Eyeshadow Trio in Legendary

MUA Trio Eyeshadow in Legendary

A couple of months ago I purchased a huge MUA make-up haul, and included within it was this Trio Eyeshadow in Legendary. 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 pinky brown powder shadow with ripples of chocolate brown running through it, a pinky peach powder shadow with undertones of gold and finally a pale cream coloured powder shadow with ripples of pink and chocolate running through it. The rippled colour effects remind me a bit of ice cream! 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.

You can see the colours clearly on the close-up image below.

To get the look below I applied the palest cream shimmery shadow all over the eye area right up to under the brow bone. Then I applied the mid pinky peach colour all over the eyelid, and used the darkest brown colour as an accent on the outer corner of my eyelid. I love how these colours look in the palette, but I don’t really think that the middle colour, the pinky peach, really suits my colouring – it makes me look as if I have red, sore eyelids. I do love the palest colour though, it would make a good shimmer wash to use as a base underneath any other eyeshadow colour, or you could use it as a highlighter and just rub a little onto the browbone or cheekbones using your finger.

I have found that the colours apply to the skin much paler than they look in the palette and you have to apply quite a lot to get a deeper colour. There is also quite a lot of shimmer/glitter drop-off from these shadows too that takes quite a bit of tidying up after applying them. I think they look beautiful together in the swatch image below though.

  1. I have two of these, in Innocence and Smoke Screen and i remember i was almost going to order Legendary too! Much like your opinion i feel that these have low colour payoff unfortunetly :/ i usually use them with a wet brush to make it more pigmented and that’s how i use them!
