Makeup Academy Shade 6 Pearl Eyeshadow Review

 Makeup Academy is a very affordable UK cosmetics line. I first heard of the brand from Lauren Luke and had to try their products. My English bestie Rae sent me a few of their shadows in a swap. Makeup Academy calls their Single Shadows are "super pigmented, smooth, and easy to apply. These are a must-have item from Makeup Academy." There's a total of 34 Pearl shades available, this review is for Shade 6 Pearl. Each single eyeshadow contains 2g and retails for £1, or $1.60US. Makeup Academy does not test on animals. This eyeshadow was made in China. Makeup Academy products can be bought at Superdrug in the UK, and through the brand's website, which ships internationally.
 There really isn't a lot to say about this eyeshadow's packaging. Its bland and doesn't feel very sturdy. The pan of eyeshadow is placed in a black base, covered by a clear, domed lid that flips open. The lid features the company logo. A label on the back of the product offers the shade number and a full ingredient list.
 Shade 6 is really nice, much better quality than Shade 5. Shade 6 has a smooth texture and blends very nicely. This isn't the most pigmented eyeshadow that I've worked with, it needs to be packed on over a primer or base to achieve it's full potential. Makeup Academy's Shade 6 eyeshadow is fallout free. I've previously experienced very poor wear from Shade 5, so my expectations for Shade 6 were pretty low. This single eyeshadow blew Shade 5 out of the water! It lasts all day without creasing or fading.
 Shade 6 is a very pretty green turquoise with a soft, frosty finish. In the pan, Shade 6 looks to be very cool and blue based, and it is when applied in a concentrated way, but when sheered out you can see a touch of yellow in it. I actually really like to wear Shade 6 as a wash of color all over the lid.
Makeup Academy's Shade 6 Pearl Eyeshadow is good! The texture, wear, and blendability  are a big improvement on the other Pearl finish Makeup Academy shadow I've tried. This turquoise shade is very pretty and trendy for spring. If you want to try a greenish turquoise shadow for cheap and have access to Makeup Academy, Shade 6 is a great choice.
