Accidental May Haul

May 29, 2014

Sometimes you just want to shop. It’s an urge that truly can not be ignored, especially if Gem and I are left alone, unsupervised! This afternoon was definitely one of those times and we ended up going on a completely unplanned spree. No budget style shop would be complete without a trip to Primark and even though I didn’t -need- anything at all, I still ended up with a bag full of stuff. I absolutely adore giraffes and I squeeled…

MUA Matte Lipsticks Review and Swatches

April 21, 2014

  I actually picked these up a while ago, but they’ve sat in my “to be reviewed” pile for far too long so I thought it was finally time to break them out and give them some wear! I picked up all five shades available (l-R) Peachy Keen, Pouty Pink, Totally Nude, Wild Berry & Scarlet Siren, though I’ve seen that there are two more shades floating around now (which of course I will need to find and add to complete the…

A haul full of bargains!

April 15, 2014

  I’m always one for a bargain but I think I got some real steals in this haul! As always this wasn’t planned…I was just going to look! Then suddenly I remembered I had a boots gift voucher and it all got a bit..out of hand. No regrets though as I already love everything I picked up!   My story starts in Superdrug as I decided this would be the day I finally fulfilled my long desire for Sleek’s Rose Gold…

MUA Power Pout in “Runaway” Review

April 13, 2014

This was a sheer accidental purchase. I didn’t need it, but as always when browsing the MUA stand, it slipped and fell into my basket. Well it would be rude not to take it home after all that wouldn’t it? I chose this because it has a beautiful coral look to it. I didn’t actually realise that this was more of a tinted lip balm until I got home, but I still absolutely love it!   Considering this is just…

MUA Mascara shade 3 Review

MUA Mascara Shade 3 Blue

  You know how it is when you’re casually browsing the MUA stand and you just can’t help picking up a few bits and pieces even though you promised yourself you wouldn’t? Yeah well, that totally happened to me (oops!) and I ended up with a couple of things, this fabulous shade of mascara being one of them! The tube is opaque plastic and not as I thought clear showing the colour inside. The mascara itself is less greeney/turquoise hued…

MUA “Pretty Edgy Eyeshadow Palette” – The Studded Palette Review

March 13, 2014

  When Gem and I had heard MUA had launched a “studded” palette under their Luxe range, our imaginations ran wild with what many delights this could entail, and thankfully a lot of this ran true. As suspected, they had released a beautiful palette, covered in gold studs. What could be more heavy metal than that? During the festive period, this was sold out everywhere, including direct from the MUA website, but luckily Gem had procured this for my birthday…

MUA LUXE Velvet Lip Lacquer Review

March 12, 2014

I’ve seen a host of reviews on this product all talking about how amazing it is and with the temptation of the shade “Atomic” (you’ve guessed it, a bright red) being too much for me to resist, I ended up buying this a few weeks ago. Usually not being a fan of wand style lip applications, I was sceptical to begin with. I tried it out the day I bought it and slapped it on quickly, whilst running late for…

MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter

March 10, 2014

  I’ve been trying to get my hands on one of these for absolutely ages and now suddenly they are everywhere! When it comes to highlighter I am a firm fan of Benefit Highbeam, so much so I’ve barely tried any powder highlighters – this might be the one to change my mind though! The Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter has a gorgeous peachy colour with a -lot- of shimmer, I really wasn’t expecting so much pigment but really I would…

MUA Starry Night Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

November 22, 2013

MUA have a great range of eyeshadow palettes, but I always seem to have trouble with their matte shades. This gorgeous silver toned collection however is all shimmer finish, making every single shade a winner. Starry Night has twelve shades in total, but as with all the older MUA lines they are not named (or even numbered – a big gripe of mine!). As with all cheaper eyeshadows a primer is an absolute necessity, and for these swatches I’ve used…
