Quick Fire Review: MUA 3in1 Extreme Contour Eye Pen.

What Does It Claim To Do? 

MUA claim "by using the angles of the nib, this fantastic eye pen creates 3 different looks whatever the occasion" 
Available in a range of colours, I went down the safe route and plumped for black. 
By playing with the thickness of the pen, you can either go for a slick defined line, go all out and coat the lid, or go smudgy and smoky.
All for £1.50.

What Does It Actually Do?

It works to a point, the angled nib give you different effects and if soft, pliable eye products float your boat, you can't go wrong for £1.50. It lands far more over on the smudgy side once applied however to claim that you can get perfect definition. 

The Verdict. 

Before I begin, I just want to slap a massive £1.50 disclaimer on this, I mean £1.50! You can't ask the earth for less than a couple of quid and you get a decent product if you're willing to work with this. 
It's a creamy, waxy product that will delight some and horrify others. It's not going to last forever without some serious priming and sealing and the pigmentation just isn't that rich. 
Considering it's a nifty little paint stick not unlike a far more expensive MAC version, it's worth a chance. It's a one way ticket to grunge heaven.

Where Can I Find It? 

HERE or at Superdrug stores nationwide.

  1. I bought this too - love it, i do agree that reapplication after a little while is necessary though! But for £1.50, who am I to complain?!

  2. Oh this looks very interesting ! xx

  3. This sounds like a good product, will definitely have a look in Superdrug next time I'm there! It looks a little more brown in the swatches than black though, is it better on the eye?

    1. It is black, but it's not the blackest black if that makes sense! It needs a good few swipes to build up depth of colour x
