New products on the MUA website!!

Hi everyone, 

So a few days ago I posted on MUA releasing new products – one of them being 3 new shades in the Velvet Lip Lacquer line.

You can visit MUA (Makeup Academy) on http://www.muastore.co.uk 

(All images are from their website.)

Well, they have been released, along with a few other products.

I of course already made an order – no I did not buy everything but only what I wanted 🙂

So in this blog post I am going to share with you guys all the products that came out plus what I bought. Hopefully this week or next week I receive my order and will be able to try the products out.

I think the products that I was most excited for were the new MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer shades. There are 3 new shades in the collection.

One of them is the base lip coat you can call it. It basically is a pure white colour where you put this first on your lips as the base. Then you should apply the other colour – maybe one of the other two shades – as the next layer.

The white shade will help the other colour become more emphasized on the lip !! As is called a colour enhancer, therefore it should enhance the lip shade that you would put on top of it!

The other two shades are summer shades.

We have one called Sugar Coated and once you see it, it truly reminds me of the colour of candy floss. It looks like a nice frosted pink.

The other shade is quite unique and it is called Iced. This shade is one which you cannot wear on an everyday however I guess if you are brave enough to apply this colour, then go for it! I truly believe that with this shade comes a bold look!

I of course bought all these three shades and cannot wait to try them out. I am also excited to try Iced and Sugar Coated together to see what lip effect I can come up with!

These are £3 each.

Another complete new product is a new range of lip liners. They are called the MUA Luxe Precision Lip Liners. I personally didn’t buy any as I don’t tend to reach for lip liners as much. But I am curious of how the formula is.

These come in 5 shades and they actually go hand in hand with there Vivid Intense Lipsticks because they have the same shades and names.

The packaging of these lip liners is too cute ! These are £3 each.

MUA also released 2 new eyeshadow palettes. I am always so excited when they release new eyeshadow palettes. I only chose one and will tell which I’ve chosen after I have written about both palettes.

On their website – as I have not tried this out yet – it states that the shades are soft, silk shades which makes them easier to create a well blended look.

The first one is the MUA Luxe Eyeshadow Palette called Enchanted.

Let’s start off with the cute packaging it comes in!! The colours are all blended in so perfectly.

Also the colours in the palette all go so well together!

The second palette is called Enrapture. This includes eyeshadow shades that are more dark whilst the other one has soft and gentle shades.

This is definitely a palette to use for smokey eye looks.

They both retail for £6. And I of course went for the Enchanted palette as I saw myself reaching for that mostly. I am not saying that the Enrapture palette is not nice, I just tend to prefer softer tones!

Screen Shot 2016-07-31 at 7.26.01 PM

They also released the MUA Luxe Ombre Shimmer Stick which is perfect to create a summer glowing look. I however, did not see myself needing this so I opted out from adding it to my cart.

But because I am showing you everything that MUA released I will still include a small piece on this. And just by writing it I am thinking to myself – Kezia why did you not buy this product?

So on the MUA website it states that it adds a beautiful shimmer and shine with the 3 shade ombre highlighter. Which from the picture I cannot see how it comes in three shades all in one.

Anyways, these 3 shades are said to compliment one another and have a creamy consistency. They are easy to blend and can be applied to the face and body to add that gleam and highlight that you are wishing upon.

Again I am asking myself – WHY DID I NOT BUY THIS?!?!

This retails for £5. (oh now I remember – I actually purchased a highlighter that I have been looking at for a while – so I guess I still got that highlight in my shopping cart just not the newest one – I will share this product with you when I receive it.)

Screen Shot 2016-07-31 at 7.30.55 PM

The last new product I noticed on the website was MUA Profession 8 Wedge Makeup Sponges. 

These are said to work well with both liquid and cream formulas. I did not buy these just for now as I do not need them. But they only are £2 and you get 8 of them so I think it is quite a bargain!!

Anyways, that is all from me today!

I would like to tell you that TOMORROW a new video will be released on my channel – http://www.youtube.com/KezziesCorner as this week the schedule is not the same as usual as tomorrow the video is a collab with 2 of my friends 🙂 So stay tuned for that!!!

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday.

Love Kezia

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!!

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

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!!!!

MUA – NEW PRODUCTS!!

Hi guys!!

So we have been seeing photos on MUA’s facebook that they are bringing some new items. And here I thought they will be released as part of the Spring Collection.

But I was surprised when I saw a facebook notification – because yes I did mark on their facebook to send me a notification to let me know when they post new things – and there it was – a photo that their new product range mainly new shades in the Velvet Lip Lacquers collection and new face products have been released!!

I instantly headed to the website and made an order! The products have not arrived yet but alas I still want to share with my readers what the new products are and which ones I have bought!!

So let us just jump right into it and get started!!

First we have NEW FACE products :-

Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.05.40 PM

We have this Skin Define Matte Perfect Primer – and I do not think we have seen them come out with a lot of primers, so I am glad they are doing so nowadays. It is described to be:

Formulated for oil prone skin this primer will mattify, remove shine and even out complexion. The smooth finish provides the perfect base for foundation

So if you have oily skin and want to remove any shine, you might want to try this out. However, I did not go for this product as I did not really need a new primer.

Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.06.13 PM

The next item is the Skin Define Matte Perfect Foundation which comes in six shades. This is quite impressive that they actually came out at least with a few shades. It states that:

A soft and smooth foundation formulated with vitamins A, E & jojoba to create the perfect, flawless matte complexion. Shine control that lasts all day.

I actually ordered this product as I am curious how it is going to feel. Since I have combination skin I am a bit worried as matte foundations of course dry quickly, but when applied right have a nice finished look. And I like the idea of foundations to have vitiamins in them and I am curious as to what jojoba is going to do. I hope to get a flawless look … actually a perfect flawless look as described.

Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.05.32 PM

Since I ordered the foundation I said might as well try this product out. I never bought a loose powder from MUA before. Therefore this will be my experience with it. Of course since they came out with this Skin Define Matte Perfect range they of course have to include a powder in the collection. This states that

Micro-fine powder formulated with vitamins A, E & jojoba, will seal foundation as well as controlling oil appearance on the skin. Perfect matte shine control.

Therefore this should work perfectly with the foundation. And of course for both items – the foundation and powder – adding up to only £7 I would say that is a bargain.

Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.05.58 PM.png

I did not buy this however I am curious as how the product is as again I never bought an eye primer for MUA. And the Pro Base range has done very well, I mean I love the concealer!! Hopefully this eye primer does its job.

 

Over here we have some new items we can use to perfect our finished look. I did not purchase these as I did not need them however I cannot wait to see reviews on them. The kabuki brush does not look like a kabuki brush though.

Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.05.45 PM.png

I did not purchase this, as personally I prefer buying separate lipsticks HAHA! But this is so cute for girly girls who loves their pinks and nudes. The nude colours actually look fantastic!!

Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.06.04 PMScreen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.06.09 PM

Now these are what I was excited about!!!!!! I stupidly forgot to order Halycon but then reassured myself that I have a similar shade … I hope!! But I love the Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer range. The quality of these lip sticks are amazing and they last so long! I love them so much. The one I cannot wait to try is UNITY as I see it as a lovely spring shade! I also got Dash and Harmony to add some more pinks to my collection.

However when I can I wanna get that Halycon!!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!!

Happy weekend!!

And HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY TO EVERYONE!!

Love Kezzie
