Hello, it’s me. (I’ve been listening to Adele, clearly)
Today’s post is all about the brand ‘MUA’ or Makeup Academy if you like to be proper. Well, I say all about it but really it’s just about the 3 products of theirs that I own…
First up is the ‘Heaven and Earth’ eyeshadow palette. I’ve had this palette for a couple of years now so it can often get a bit lost in my collection but every now and then I rediscover it and go through periods of time where I reach for it everyday. I’m currently going through one of these phases. The eyeshadows themselves are quite buttery and so easy to blend, for the price of £4 for 12 shadows I really can’t complain about the quality of them. The only downside of this palette for me is that there a zero matte shades as I am a massive matte lover.
Moving onto the lipsticks. I have 2 lipsticks, a nude, which is very brown toned (and in the picture below almost looks berry but I promise it’s nude) and a coral shade. Both are creamy to apply and aren’t drying in the slightest however they are quite sheer so do require some build up to get the full effect. The fact they’re quite sheer isn’t really an issue for me as for £1 I’m not to bothered if I have to apply a couple of times for the desired effect. The shade range on these is quite large as well, with 18 shades in total varying from nude to black there really is something for everyone. I think I’ll be looking to hit superdrug to stock up on some more shades very soon.
The main downfall of these lipsticks is they’re longevity isn’t the best. However, I combat this with an amazing product called Lipcote – available from Boots here – which locks your lipstick in and keeps it in place for about 6 hours. I’ll be doing a post on this bad boy in the very near future as it is one of my holy grail lip products.
Until next time I’m back off down the rabbit hole.
