MUA 3 In 1 Extreme Contour Liner

I picked up these two products about a month ago but just forgot to blog about them. Silly me. They are two new items from the MUA collection. They come in 8 different shades, retailing at £1.50 each, you can see all the shades & buy them here.

I was lucky enough to find them when there was an offer on in Superdrug; buy any MUA product & get one Contour Liner free. (My friend also bought an MUA item but didn't want her liner so I had it) Yay. : )

Unfortunately lots of other people had already notice this offer & there wasn't much choice left, but I settled for these two shades, Smoked Plum & Gun Metal. (Shade 6 & 8)


The Smoked Plum comes out in a dark purple shade, perfect to add a pop of colour to your everyday look. The Gun Metal is more a dark silver shade, perfect for using with a smokey eye for a night out.

These products are designed with a pointed nib, allowing you to create a thin or thick line, either below or on your eyelid. I only occasionally use eye liner & always go for under my eye, so I tend to use the thinnest part of the nib.

Gun Metal: (haven't used)



What I love about this product is how easy it applies. The nib is so soft & pigmented, it just glides onto your skin. I have tried the Smoked Plum as a eyeshadow on the outer corners of my eyelids, but without a primer, it will crease within half an hour. Not a good look. Always use a primer if your going to use it as an eyeshadow.

Have you tried this product? Any other shades you'd recommend?

I'll hopefully post what I bought him in the next couple of days so you can see, so pleased with it. : ) Hope you're all well girls!
