MUA: Make Up Academy – Colour Blasts – Diamond, Unfaithful and Loud swatches

Ever since I got the firs three shades of the MUA Colour Blasts (HERE) I knew I’d want to get the other three to complete my collection. As such I was Very pleased to have been able to get them recently.
 The pink shade is called ‘Diamonds’, the plum is called ‘Loud’ and the charcoal grey is called ‘Unfaithful’.
The swatch for ‘Diamonds’ wasn’t the easiest to pick up on camera as it’s quite a subtle shade; but then I think that’s what most of us would be looking for if we were wanting a pink like this?
I really like this shade as it’s got a nice amount of shimmer/sheen to it but it’s not too  much an it looks as though it’ll be the right sort of shade to look pretty on the eye rather than being one of those pinks that makes you look a little run down. I have high hopes for this shade!
I tried to capture the duality of this shade in this photo. ‘Loud’ is quite an amazing shade in that it’s a lovely plum colour but it seems to change depending on the light and the density of the shade. If you look towards the top and bottom of the line of this swatch you’ll be able to see how it appears a more brown plum whereas in the middle it’s much more purpley – I really like this shade and the fact that it has some brown aspects should definitely help it stay more wearable.
 ‘Unfaithful’ is a really gorgeous charcoal/gun metal grey. This is one of those shades that’s really dark but when it’s in the right light is has a gorgeous sheen to it as I think you can see in the photo.
 I think this will make a fantastic smoky eye, especially as these formulas are nice and creamy so it should be easy to blend out.

    Ooh you ask a tough question Serena! I love all the shades but I almost always end up going back to neutrals so I think 'Stay' and 'A girl like me' get the most use. That said, purple is my favourite colour, I just don't wear it so often when it comes to cosmetics so 'Loud' is a real favourite even if it doesn't get as much use xx
