Yay, my Colour Blasts by MUA arrived! I’ve been hoping they’d come quickly and, considering I wasn’t able to order them until early evening on Friday, they’ve come in pretty good time!
MUA have released a set of 6 Colour Blast eye tint pencils in a nice selection of colours; there’s the three neutrals that I have to show you today and then there’s also a dark charcoal colour, a dark purple and a light pink which add a nice extra dimension to the range.
Being a bit of a fan of neutrals it was an easy choice as to the first three for me to purchase; though I’d definitely like to add the other three to my collection in the future.
These three are called (l-r) ‘Stay’, ‘A girl like Me’ and ‘Bring it Back’.
As you can see we have a nice light, champagne colour, a nice medium taupey shade and then a darker, chocolatey shade with a hint of bronze. A pretty nice range of neutrals considering it’s only a collection of 6 shades.
And to the swatches! The colours are really nicely pigmented and very buildable plus they’re very nice, rich colours. I think they’ll give options for a large range of possible looks which is nice for something so affordable and considering we’re only looking at three shades.
And I thought you’d like to see how much shimmer they have – The champagne shade is the most shimmery, and then they get less shimmery the darker you get. I do like the amount of shimmer, though, I think it’s quite fitting to each shade and the darkest shade is nice in that it looks like a nice chocolate’y brown until the shimmer shows that bronzey tint.
These pencils are Uber affordable, as you’d expect from MUA, and at £3 each it’s really easy to build up a nice collection.
I am yet to see what their longevity is like so I can’t comment on that, really, but I can say that they don’t have that instant solidity that some other shadow pencils offer – But this is a good thing in terms of blendability, I think that these will be lovely to blend. It’s how they stand up in terms of their lasting ability that I will be keeping an eye on once I’ve worn them a few times. I’ll be sure to let you know once I have a better idea!
All in all, as far as first impressions go, I’m very pleased and really looking forward to trying this out!
