Testing out NEW MUA COSMETICS!!

Hi everyone, 

Boy I haven’t written here in a while. I miss it so much. I should be posting a couple of blog posts in the coming week. . . So STAY TUNED!!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter! Mine was spent in London with my mum so yes expect a Primark Haul soon!

Today’s video is all about some NEW MUA products that recently came out. I bought them a while ago and managed to film a video for you guys. This was my First Impressions of the products as before having filmed this video I never tried them out! I created this look with copper pink eyes and rosey dark pink lips.

I noticed that MUA have recently came out with some other NEW products! I am so wanting to get my hands on them and am so disappointed that I didn’t notice them in Superdrug while on holiday!!

Here are the products mentioned in the video and also a little written summary of my after thoughts –

Face Products –

IMG_8031

I love using this powder to set my overall foundation. Yes it is a little too powder-y but it does the job in setting all your face products and settling them down nicely. When taking pictures I find that my face doesn’t come looking as white as can be therefore there isn’t any flashback. I prefer however, using this only to set my under eye concealer rather than applying it all over my face.

Finally, this is a bargain as you get a lot of product for only £4!

This is the product I prefer to set my overall face products with rather than the fine loose setting powder. It doesn’t move my foundation all around and the blush, bronzer and highlight settle down nicely on this product. This is a great product and is very affordable at only £4!

I did not use this product on camera however I did use it after. Besides there only being half of the product in the tub it is an okay primer to start off your makeup look. It doesn’t make my skin red and helps in decreasing the look of my pores. It isn’t shiny as well!

However, again I did not like that the product came half empty and it was £5! I don’t think I would buy this product again!

  • MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighters –

I love these highlighters. I have others in my collection and would like to get the other new shades that they recently came out with as well (Peach Diamond, Ice Sparkle, Pearlescent Sheen) . They create a bright highlight across your cheekbone which can be seen a mile away. I love how they don’t emphasise any lines or pores on your skin but settle nicely on my face. I absolutely love these highlighters and they are also so affordable at £3 each!

From Left to Right – Rosewood Glimmer, Golden After Glow, Golden Scintillation

I showed the following shades in my video – 
Golden After Glow  – literally a golden glimmer highlight!
Rosewood Glimmer – a rosey/pinky/pinkred, original highlight!
Golden Scintillation – a softer and lighter yellow golden glimmer highlight!

  • Illumination Highlight Kits 

IMG_8037

MUA also released two illumination Highlight Kits. The first I totally dig as even though the highlights are quite light they still come up as very natural on my skin. The second kit I think is for those who have darker skin tone as some shades are more like a contour, bronze and dusky rose shade rather then a highlight for us fair kinda gals. But I think they would look amazing on those who darker skin tones and want a natural looking highlight!

The shades are powders and matte and can be layered together to create an effortless highlight. These palettes however are a little bit pricey for £6 but you do get 6 different shades so I guess a £1 for each!

Eye Products –

This eyeshadow palette was so difficult to work with. The shades are all shimmer-y and are so difficult to pat onto your eyelid. I used that one ember shade all over my eyelid and I do not know how many times I had to go back and forth and add more product for me to be completely happy with the end result.

In the end I did get a good enough look however, I would not buy this palette again. I loved using the palest of shades to highlight with but that’s it! I guess for the price being £3.50 you really don’t get much from this product.

 

Lip Products –

  • MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers –

You all know how much I love these velvet lip lacquers! They were the first matte liquid lipsticks I ever bought and applied onto my lips! I love them, some colours are misses but some are amazing! I will be doing a separate video showing you lip swatches of each of these shades .. so STAY TUNED for that!

From Left to Right – 
Panache  – Wine Red Shade
Curious –  Dark Purple Shade

Euphoria – Light Pink Shade
Elegance – Dark Rosey Pink Shade

Sizzle – Perfect Orange Red Shade

Thank you so much for reading! I would love to hear your thoughts of these products. Have you ever tried them? Would you like to if you haven’t? Comment down below!!

MUA Haul – Mermaid Velvet Lip Lacquers

Hi everyone, 

It’s Wednesday i.e. VIDEO day !!

So this video has been recorded for over a month and has been sitting in my video manager on youtube for quite a long time.

I had to continue re-scheduling its release date simply because I had other videos I could not wait to share with you all.

But finally, today it was set to public and so here it is.

MUA actually have released new items – their fall collection. However they are currently only available at Superdrug and will be online soon. I don’t know when as they were supposed to go up today however they will not be.

img_4251

So a month ago I purchased a few new products. Here’s the video showing them –

The products that were mentioned were – 

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Sugar Coated

img_4238

So this is a cute light baby pink/candy floss shade. The colour is cute and when I swatched it on my hand it seems amazing. However, when I tried applying it onto my lips I couldn’t manage to close it. Also it is a really light shade so it seemed to wash me out.

I now have used it by first doing a darker pink shade then using this Iced Shade as the shade in the middle – to create a lip contoured effect.

I also had tried it with the colour enhancer that I will mention below and that did not seem to work. I might not have waited long enough for the colour enhancer to dry resulting in a patchy result.

All in all, I like mixing this shade with a darker pink shade.

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Iced

img_4236

This had the same problem as the Iced shade however it seemed to be a bit better.

I did apply this both with the enhancer and without. Because I was using the enhancer as the primary base shade on my lip then applying the coloured shade on top. As I wrote before I should have waited longer for it to dry before applying the coloured shade.

This though applied better on its own however it did give me a patchy result which I don’t like. Usually their velvet lip lacquers are amazing, they are still one of my favourite liquid lipstick formulas out there. In fact, even if I do not quite fancy these 2 new shades as much I still cannot wait to get my hands on the new shades that are in their fall collection!!

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Colour Enhancer

img_4237

This can be used in the two ways. Either in the way that I mentioned above by applying it as the primary colour and then applying the coloured shade on top – now this I did not fancy a lot because it resulted in a MESS!

However then I tried it by applying a dark lip shade then I applied 2 dots both at the bottom and at the top of my lip with this enhancer. Then I blended it out and it came to have such a nice effect. Unfortunately, I don’t have photos of this but if you would like me to do a swatch video on these 3 shades please let me know in the comments down below!!

MUA Luxe Eyeshadow Palette – Enchanted

This enchanted palette is so cute ! The formula of these eyeshadows are soft and silky. They blend well and create such lovely looks!

I love this !

There’s two types of this palette, either this one or the Enrapture one. The Enchanted palette is more of the girly palette whist the enrapture one is much darker.

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder – Iridescent Gold

I love these MUA highlighters. They actually are releasing more and might be intrigued to try them out as well.

Even though these are a bit powder-y I still would recommend them. They are quite in your face so be sure to apply just a little if you want not too much of a highlight.

Comment down below if you have tried any of these products !!

Makeup Academy – MUA Summer 2016 NEW Products!!

Hi makeup lovers,

Ahhhhh! I have been wanting to blog this post from Wednesday! Surprise surprise, MUA released their new Summer Collection! Even though there wasn’t a new eyeshadow palette to go along with this collection, there were a lot of NEW LIP PRODUCTS! This made me so ecstatic!!

I bought two separate orders, this helped decrease the shipping rate which is crazy! If you skip the £30 you would need to spend another £30 in shipping (this is speaking for Malta of course).

So I made 2 different orders, however am still waiting to receive them!

But I could not wait to share all the AMAZING goodies they have got new in their line. I will also tell you which ones I bought. A future post will be uploaded once my new products arrive!!! So stay tuned!!!

You can view all these amazing products on http://www.muastore.co.uk

  • MUA Luxe Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit – Pink Luster

    Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.23.11 PM.png

This is the second Strobe & Glow kit they have released. This is more of a pink toned glow rather than the one they released in Spring. Personally I prefer this one and so I bought this one!!! This retails for £5.

  • Bronzed Perfection Shimmer Sahara Sunlight

Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.25.02 PM.png

MUA released three new bronzers and this one is one of them. I personally prefer this one because besides it being the brown contour bronze shade, it also has hints of golden pigments which allows for a shimmer bronzed effect. This looks perfect for summer and I cannot wait to receive mine in the mail! This retails for only £4!!

  • Bronzed Perfection Matte Sunset Tan

Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.25.10 PM.png

This is a complete matte bronzer! It only comes in this shade! May I just say the packaging is adorable! This also retails for just £4. I did not pick this one up as I already have similar to it in my collection. However, if you are looking for a warm and natural bronzed effect, maybe you should pick this up!!

MUA Luxe Inked Lip Stain

Watermelon

Ok, so let’s take a moment at how gorgeous these colours are! And we can all agree that they are ideal SUMMER COLOURS! On the website it describes these as:

  • Ultimate Colour that lasts all day, MUA Luxe Inked Lip Stains are vibrant shades in a lightweight, matte formula. Non-transferable, once applied the water-based stain leave lips soft and comfortable with stunning colour.

These retail for just £4 each and I of course bought all five shades! It’s funny in the first order only got Maraschino and Watermelon but then in the second I was like must get its brother and sisters!!! Cannot wait to see their matte effect and if they last as long as the Velvet Lip Lacquers!!

 

 

 

  • MUA Luxe Power Brow Sculpting Gel

Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.42.11 PMScreen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.42.15 PM

As you can see this comes in six different shades; there are – (from left to right) auburn, chestnut, dark brown, fair, light brown & mid brown. I got the fair but am worried because the colour swatches are not that easy to follow! But we will see, hopefully I chose the right shade. I never tried a brow product from MUA so this would be my first but I am excited!!

It states that is is smooth to apply and quick to dry. Also, the formula helps with resisting a smudged up appearance and it comes with a brush stored in the lid! This retails for £4. 

  • Pixel Perfect Multi Blush

(Roll your mouse over the images and it will tell you the names of each shade)

I think this is so cute, I already have their mosaic blush and am in love with it so I had to pick one up! I chose the Cherry Charm. I think they are just so cute, all the mish mash of the colours makes it a perfect blush shade!! These retail for £3 each! Although,I feel that Peach Bloom is just like a bronzer, but that may be that the picture is misleading of the actual shade it is in!

  • Pixel Perfect Multi Bronze

Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.53.21 PM
Terracotta Glow
Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.53.34 PM
Sunseeker Sheen

Of course they had to do also the Pixel Perfect Bronzers! These come in only two shades and are also £3 each! I chose to pick up the Terracotta glow because I prefer those shades as a new bronzer of mine! Although now looking at Sunseeker Sheen I wish I picked that up too! I think this is such a cute item and a must have for summer!

  • MUA Luxe Vivid Lipstick

Scroll over the different lipsticks to find out what their names are!

Omg! So MUA not only released a new LUXE Matte Lipstick range but also a new Lipstick Range! I just think the packaging is gorgeous! MUA describes these lipsticks as:

Ultimate impact, high pigment, full coverage lipstick. The MUA Luxe Vivid Colour Intense lipstick formula is gorgeously smooth and rich which, with one application, can achieve a perfectly plush coverage.

Cannot wait to try them, I only picked up Hot Chilli, Punch, Rocket & Red Alert. If you are into corals then definitely pick up Burn Baby Burn too! I am not much of a fan so I let that be! These retail for £3 each!

  • Pro-Base Cover & Conceal Kit

Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 5.08.40 PM

From left to right – Chestnut, Espresso, Ivory, Natural, Porcelain, Shell, Sienna

(Scroll over the pictures to see the shade names)

I personally did not pick this up, I have a similar palette of theirs which I did not like. However, this is rather impressive because of the vast colour range they introduced. These retail for £4 each. It includes four cream concealer shades to achieve a perfect base. Each shade can be used on its own or blended with other shades to match your skin tone. On the website it states:

The lightweight formulation is perfectly buildable to cover a multitude of complexion and skin imperfections leaving a natural finish.

I guess it would be exciting to try but I opted out of buying this. If you ever try it please let me know what you think of it!!

  • New Lip Liner Shades

These are from their £1 range, and they just released four new shades! I did not pick any up and I never tried any lip liners from MUA. But they are described as being creamy and pigmented. I can see these shades being used with the new colours that MUA released in their new lipsticks.

  • New Lipstick Shades

Besides new lip liner shades, they also released four new £1 lipstick shades. I only picked up Peach Amber and Pomegranate. I was curious about how Parma Violet would look like, but not too curious enough to buy it! I have tried their £1 lipsticks and think they are a great bargain. They are extremely creamy and moisturising for your lips. It also comes with a pan underneath that you could easily apply with a brush!

So that is all, what do you think? Are you going to pick any of these amazing products? Have you already made your order? Comment down below!!!

Happy Sunday!!!!
