MUA Eyeliner Pencils

MUA Intense Colour Eyeliner Pencils, £1. link
Malt Chocolate, Royal Blue, Snow White, Forest Green, Gold Nugget and Turquoise

MUA, or Makeup Academy, is a fabulous brand that you can get online or in Superdrug stores. Unfortunately, it's only available in the UK. Anyway, it's great quality stuff for amazing prices. My most recent love from this brand is the intense colour eyeliner pencils. They are just as good as some of the more expensive brands I've tried and they are only £1 a pencil.

They offer two types of pencils that are both just as good as each other. The Intense Colour Pencils are shimmery or matte, whereas the Intense Glitter Pencils are full of glitter.  They are both really well pigmented and reasonably soft too. They don't quite glide on like Nyx Slide on pencils or anything like that but they don't cause any hurt on the lids anything like that.

Snow White, Royal Blue, Gold Nugget, Forest Green, Turquoise and Malt Chocolate
The best colours that I have are gold nugget and forest green. They are both beautifully pigmented and I feel like I could wear them every day, where as some of the both colours are a little brighter and are more for special occasions.
I would say that the worst colour is the snow white shade. Its not as pigmented as the rest of the shades. It's still an amazing white eyeliner for the price, but it's not as great as the others.   only really got it for use on the water line and it doesn’t show up on the water line at all.

I think the sharpeners on the lid show that it's a slightly cheaper product because it's not the most ascetically pleasing but it's really handy. It's also really nice to have a sharpener on hand all the time. A sharpener alone would cost more than the pencil itself and I use the for almost all my pencils simply because it's the only one that I don't loose. 


  1. Wow that green looks lovely! For a pound, you can't really complain too much either. I'm very tempted to pick up a few now :D
