Review | Makeup Academy (M.U.A) Pencil Eye Liners

This is my second post reviewing products by Makeup Academy/ M.U.A. This one is about their pencil eye liners. I only own a couple as I am not someone who wears bright colours on my eyes. I prefer a bright, bold lip colour over colourful eyes. So the two I own are quite natural looking. I did also own a silver glitter eye liner by M.U.A but the quality was poor so I have thrown that one away. Both eye liners cost just £1 each!
Top: Gold Nugget | Bottom: Rich Brown
Left to right: Gold Nugget | Rich Brown
Both of these eye liners are amazingly pigmented and glide on really easily. I like to use these liners on my upper lash line, the Rich Brown one is great at making your lashes appear fuller without being a harsh black line. Gold Nugget is a great Summer alternative which I am using on a regular basis. It doesn't make my lashes fuller like the Rich Brown but gives a lovely golden shimmer to my lash line. Also because my eyes are brown, the gold really compliments my eye colour!

The eye liners also have great staying power. I used to use Rich Brown everyday for school and used to still be on my eyes before bed when I would remove my makeup! Gold Nugget doesn't stay as long as Rich Brown and I do have to top it up in the day but it's definitely not as bad as other liners I have used.

Another thing I like is that there is a built in sharpener on the lid! And the great thing is it actually works really well. Some eye liner sharpers make my pencils go all funny and break the product but this one sharpens smoothly and doesn't damage the pencil.

You can find these eye liners in most Superdrug stores and their website as well as Makeup Academy's website. There is a great selection of colours including orange, blue, purple and just ordinary blacks and browns. For only a few pounds you can have a selection of colours for different eye looks! These eye liners are definitely worth checking out, they are a staple in my everyday makeup!

Have you tried Makeup Academy's eye liners?

    1. It's really pretty on the eye, could be used as an eyeshadow base as well I think if you smudge it out! xx

  6. I'm similar to you, I much prefer wearing natural/brown/gold colours around my eyes - I would look stupid with bright blue eye makeup with my dark eyes and hair anyway! That gold is so pretty! I've not tried M.U.A before but heard so much about it on the blogs. Great review x

  7. For some reason I never would have thought about buying the MUA eye liners but if they're as good as the lipsticks I'll be picking up a few next time I'm in Superdrug!
