MUA Haul

Hello lovelies. Hope you're all well.

Thought I'd show you some of the MUA products I picked up last week. I've done another video on this as well, so if you want to watch it, click here.

Right, so I picked up three lipsticks, a nail varnish, three eye shadows & a pressed powder all for £7. I wonder how many of you read that & went 'whatttt!?' Yes, you see I got eight products for £7. Now we all know MUA is cheap.. but that would mean I got one free right? Well yes, I did! My pressed powder scanned through at £0.00. No idea why / how etc. But, even more of a bargain don't you think? : )

So you've all seen the standard pressed powder before (no point me reviewing this, it's boring & well.. I'm sure I've posted about it before) but here's a picture anyway!


It's shade 2 & just goes over my foundation (as I use a liquid foundation, it's quite handy to help it dry quicker)

So on to the new-er stuff. : )

First the nail varnish. Now I haven't actually ever bought a nail varnish from MUA, but I saw this colour & just thought it was so pretty, I couldn't resist.




I painted my nails last Friday (Monday today) & only applied one coat to see how it would wear & I'm actually really impressed. It's only chipped a little on two fingers, so not bad at all. It also dried really fast, which is always a requirement I go for in nail varnishes. (I'm so impatient waiting for them to dry!)

Next, the eye shadows.



This turquoise one was a impulse buy. I love this colour but no idea if I'll find something to wear with it.



Sparkly purple. I do love my sparkles for nights out. : )
 

 
& a dark purple. I'm going to try to create a smokey eye, using purples instead of silvers, black & greys. I'll definitely try to take pictures & show you if it turns out half decent!
 
So next is the three lipsticks, in three different shades. : )
 

 
This is the first one, it's a very strong, barbie pink colour & I have to say, this is my favourite out of the three I bought. I don't know why, but it seems to have a stronger pigment than the other two. (even though one is dark red) It just lasts a lot longer.
 

 
This is the pearly soft pink. It's alot more sparkly, but in a sutle way. (If that makes sense) I do like this colour, but it doesn't tend to last very long on your lips. (2 hours tops)
 

 
This is the dark red. I wore this out on a night out on Saturday & it actually lasted quite a long time.
 
Swatches of all three:
 
 
Sooo, what do you think? Have you tried any of these products or any other shades of MUA lipsticks you'd recommend?
 
Oh yes & I've created an about me page today as well. (I have been a busy bee!) So check it out if you'd like. : )

  2. Love MUA varnishes, I think they last really well especially considering they are only £1.
