MUA Matte Eyeshadow shade 18 is very vibrant and the colour is definitely more violet than it is purple. i like to have a dramatic look at a party by either using more or less of the eye shadow on my eye lid, it is easy and soft to blend while using my finger tips rather than using my brush and has lasted me through out the whole day, it is a good bargain for £1 and works very well, it is small, well compact and holds a lot of the powder in it so i definitely recommend this.
Great size pot.
Easy to apply.
Shade 18 from MUA (MakeUp Academy) is a deep matte purple or violet. This can be as dark or as light as you wish. It's a great defining colour, that can give definition to eyes. I usually apply lightly in the crease of the eyesocket to give a hint of colour, this gives a softer look. Great price and so many colours to choose from in the MUA range, that creating diferent eye effects isn't so expensive.
