Review: MUA Makeup Academy Extreme Metallics Quad Eyeshadow “Smokin” + swatches & EOTD

Late last year [ok August XD] MUA makeup academy [a makeup brand from the UK] had a massive free worldwide shipping promotion so i picked up a few things!
The prices are cheap and it only took 1 week to arrive in Tokyo from UK,despite the fact they were probably swamped with orders since they were having such a huge promotion.
Here’s what i bought!

As you can see, the bulk of my order were the new [ok new at that time] extreme metallics quad eyeshadows.
So i am going to review one of them today..finally XD

Overall Thoughts
I like them! More often than not , whenever i purchase cheap cosmetics, they always have an extremely strong talcum/baby powder smell. [For eg. BYS] and i really hate that. These do not have that smell. And that is a pro for me. As advertised they are VERY pigmented and despite the fact all 4 colors in the quad are not separated they do not smudge together [how cool is that?] For this price, i say you have almost nothing to lose by trying them out!
I’m thinking about picking a few things up from MUA so if you have a suggestion or recommendation, let me know!

    I love that palette that you used! Those are definitely my kind of shades. Love the EOTD look that you did with it. Gorgeous as always.
