MUA's sleek new products

The Superdrug in my local town is having a bit of an overhaul ready to squeeze in a perfume shop concession.I took this as an excuse to go in for a nose, ignoring my boyfriend's protests as it had only been a week since I dragged him in with me and "what could possibly be different?" Well actually there was a brand new shiny make-up counter so neeeeeerrrr! ;p 
Obviously from the title of this post I'm sure you have guessed that the brand new shiny make-up counter was an MUA one, a counter which I don't always stop at but today it really caught my attention.The single eye shadows have been replaced with palettes, they now also have a line of foundations and a couple of funky looking mosaic bronze and blushers. The counter wasn't fully stocked up but I picked up a few bits and pieces...
Please excuse the dodgy photo,I was rushing as my camera battery was dying!
The only minor downside with the new MUA products is that no longer is everything only £1, the prices are a little higher, only by a small amount and the quality of the products (from what I can see so far) totally justify the little hike in price.
The Dusk til Dawn palette-£4.00
(It shall be known as the George Clooney palette :))


Called the dusk til dawn palette as the 12 colours included are colours that you can use to "transform your look from day to night."As soon as I swatched these colours I was impressed, the colours are all very well pigmented, are velvety soft in texture and glide on super smoothly.So far I haven't tested these out on the eye area but I'm pretty sure they will be really easy to apply and blend.There are also around 5 other palette's to choose from in the new MUA range.
Trio eyeshadow-innocence-£2.50
Another new addition to the range are the eyeshadow trio's which include a highlight, a base shade and a contour colour.Also well pigmented but a little less smooth in consistency than the palette colours.

3 in 1 extreme contour Eye pen £1.50
To be honest I wasn't completely sure what to expect upon opening this, after reading the blurb on the back of the box I was a little unsure...
I have never seen another product like this. Is it just me? Anyway what it basically is,is a super soft angled eyeliner which you can use to create various effects with by using the different areas of the pen, for example the tip gives you a fine line, the edge gives you a thicker line, and by turning the edge on its side you can create an ultra thick line.

So far from what I can see its pretty fantastic and glides on like an absolute dream! I cant wait to test it out fully! I just wish the Black had been on the shelf!!
