Prime Time

MUA have made quite a splash in the makeup world over the last few months. Their products are pretty ace and the bonus is that nothing costs more than a fiver. I’m regularly sporting their eyeshadows and face products, so the latest addition to the range slips in quite nicely. They’re releasing an eyeshadow primer to compete with the iconic primers from brands like Urban Decay. Whoop.

The primer is a neutral skintone colour which is applied using the sponge applicator. You only need a little bit and it’s easier to tap it into skin and spread out over the whole lid with your index finger. It needs to be left for about 30 seconds to dry before you can put your eyeshadow on over the top as usual. It does feel slightly sticky if you don’t leave it to dry properly, but otherwise it’s practically invisible.

In terms of its longevity, it does help eyeshadow to stick around and look fresh all day long, as well as enhancing the colour a little and making it appear as true as it does in the eyeshadow tray. I’m not a huge user of primers usually so for me this adds in another step and another product in my already rushed routine, but for a night on the town I’d definitely use this under a smokey eye.

Available exclusively at Superdrug. RRP £2.50

    Definitely going to try this! I'm not a huge fan of primers in general but definitely for a night out – definitely going to snatch this up if it's only £2.99!

    I really wanna try this and the rest of pro range but neither of my superdrugs stock it! And I don't really like buying makeup online cos I can't test them out! Any items that you'd really recommend??

    I LOVE MUA, and have quite a few of their products. I am especially loving the MUA Porfessional range, the volume mascara is amazing. I definitely need this primer in my life – yay.Steph xxx
