MUA Eyeshadow Trio Pink Sorbet Rocks!!!

When I recently attempted to hunt down the famous sellout MUA or as know as the Makeup Academy palette called Heaven and Earth, I saw this trio of pink shadows called Pink Sorbet.  Because Heaven and Earth was soldout, I decided to get this instead as it looked super pretty.

Pink Sorbet with a dark, medium and light pink to choose from

All the colours are very shimmery.  I personally love shimmery shadows as I like how they reflect and catch the light.  They make my eye area look bright and a wake.

You don't get major fall out with this which is great.  I think it would of been nice if they had a matt shadow in the trio to try and spice it up a little but I like the palette still regardless.

Little domes of gorgeous pinky-ness

Colour descriptions:  The darkest colour is a shimmery dup of  MAC's Cranberry, the medium colour is MAC's Naked Lunch and the lightest is a MAC Shroom/Vanilla.  Obviously they are not identical to the MAC's...just look similar.

They are not super pigmented, I find it difficult to pick up colour with a brush I actually find it easier to apply the shadows with the sponge applicator which comes with the trio.

Top, Middle & Bottom: Light Medium and Dark

I've really been enjoying this trio, I used it quite a lot in September and it will be in my favourites of the month.  The MUA brand is great for people just starting to experiment with makeup.  When the brand launched everything was £1.  Most things are still a £1, but this trio is £2.50.  Still inexpensive.  When I was in Superdrug I also spotted a similar trio by Bourjois.  Looks identical right?

I swatched these three and compared in store next to the MUA threesome.  The MUA actually had nicer colours/swatch qualities compared to the Bourjois.   The Bourjois trio is £7.99, has very similar colours and packaging.  So MUA is £2.50 and Bourjois £7.99....a whole £5.49 difference.  Think I made the right choice :-)
