Make Up Academy Eye Dazzle

Makeup Academy aren’t one of the larger brands like Maybelline or Max Factor and you’re probably unlikely to heard much of them. I got this as a present from a friend for Xmas and have only actually just got round to trying it. It applies like a pen and you shade the colour onto your eyelid like you would colour in some paper.

It feels quite dusty going on but applies pretty well and you do get an all over colour. Whilst the colour does appear gold on the outside the overall effect is more of a bronze type look that doesn’t suit every skin tone, as it does tend to wash out pale tones.

Whilst the colour does stay on the lid quite a while it does tend to fade after a few hours and to get back its vibrancy you will need to reapply.

If you’re looking for something new to add to your makeup wardrobe maybe give this a try. Rating 2.5/5.


  • Easy to use
  • Quite long so will probably last quite a while
  • Versatile as it can be used for both bottom and top lids


  • Not available universally so quite difficult to get hold of
  • Colour fades after a while
