Highstreet Hits: Makeup Academy Baked Trio

Hi!

My sister was visiting us over the weekend, and it was lovely, but I am now VERY SLEEPY. So it'll be a quick one tonight. A good one, but a quick one. 

I remember when Makeup Academy makeup launched, the promise of great quality makeup for unbelievable prices was too much for me and I immediately bought everything I could. I am yet to grasp that just because makeup is cheap, doesn't mean I have to buy everything. I am forever spending the equivalent of an expensive item and lots of cheaper things. Please tell me I am not the only one that does this?!

Fortunately, the Baked Trio eyeshadows are fabulous and worth every penny. Even if that wasn't actually a lot of pennies to begin with. 
L to R; Smoke Screen, Chocolate Box, Innocence, Passion, Pink Sorbet
I have got all of the available shades and one (Passion) which appears to have now been discontinued. The palettes are mostly neutral colours, excluding Smoke Screen and Passion, the former is perfect for a dark smokey eye, whilst Passion is great for a pop of colour. My personal favourites are the 3 neutral palettes, which is unusual for me because I normally prefer something a little bolder.

Natural Light
As you can see, mine are well-used and adored, they are pretty much my go-to if I can't figure out what shade I want to pop on. I can put them on and know that they will look fabulous and I know they will go on without ruining my face. There is a little fall-out, but nothing that makes me want to claw my face off á la old school Urban Decay.
The pigmentation of the palettes is unbelievable, especially when you consider the price. These retail for only £2.50, which is utter madness. And the colours are beautiful; they are shimmery, creamy and they go on wonderfully. If you aren't fussed on shimmery eyeshadows, it goes without saying, these won't be your thing. However, if you are of the shimmer persuasion, you will LOVE these. I am particularly happy with the darkest shade in the Innocence palette, which is a lovely dupe for Mac's Satin Taupe, and it is gorgeous! If you feel like these might be something you would like, you can pick them up in Superdrug OR you can get them online right here. The new packaging is slightly different to mine, but the eyeshadows are still as lovely. Promise!

I will leave it there for tonight! Let me know what you think of Makeup Academy, are you a fan, or is there another Highstreet brand that has your heart? Drop me a comment below, or hit me up on my FacebookTwitter or my Instagram (which is pretty much the love of my life right now). I hope you're all well and I will chat to you soon!

Be happy and be kind,
