MUA Merged Eyeshadow Trios // Review

I've been a fan of the MUA eyeshadow trios for a while, they are pigmented and long lasting eyeshadows so when I saw that they were bringing out merged eyeshadow trios I couldn't wait to try them! But did they perform as well as I would have liked?

MUA Merged Trio Eyeshadow in Legendary*

They look stunning don't they? When you swatch them they are oh so pigmented and gorgeous, I couldn't wait to use them! But things were a different story when I picked up my eyeshadow brush.

When I applied the eyeshadow to my eyelids it came up sheer and it mostly just transferred glitter! Even the black came up like a light grey, I could barely see the eyeshadows on my eyes! The glitter dropped down onto my cheeks as well.

As for lasting time, the little colour that was there came off very quickly. I even tried with my UD Primer and my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk but the colour pay off didn't improve.

I really didn't enjoy using these but I would recommend the normal eyeshadow trios to you! I have the shade innocence and it is such a handy little trio, perfect for travelling as well as all three colours go together so nicely, you have a highlight shade, a all over lid shade and a darker one for adding definition! 

The Merged Trios are 50p more than the normal ones as well, so definitely go for the normal ones!

    1. MUA are by far my favourite brand so hate it when I find a product that is a let down, but the original eyeshadow trios are brilliant! xxx

  3. have you tried wetting them? - shadows like this can be quite meh but the baked formula means you can foil them with a bit of water or fix plus to improve the intensity and wear xxx

  10. Ah that's such a shame about the pigmentation, I've seen a couple reviews saying they're quite sheer :( They look gorgeous in the pan though! Might try the normal ones, been eyeing them up for a while now :) Lovely review! xx
