First the eyeshadows: my make up obsession.
Left to right - MUA pearl eyeshadow £1 each
I actually have about ten of these little eyeshadow pots now, they are pretty amazing, in fact most of my eyeshadow is MUA, come to think of it (may do a post on them all at some point!). I love purple colours and as mentioned in the last post, plums in for Autumn! I expected the first shade to be really really dark so was quite pleasantly surprised. The lighter purple is more lilac, but still pretty nice and I was happy with the white shade as I've bought quite a few before and they've not shown up at all. I actually think these would look pretty nice all together for a smokey eye, shall have to try this out.
Fashionista Double take baked eyeshadow £1.65 each
Left - Exclusive Collection
Right - Trend setter
I mainly bought these because I liked the pattern.. I'm like a magpie for pretty things. I usually try and steer clear of these baked eyeshadows as I don't want to mess up the pattern of it, which yes I know sounds silly. The one on the left is pretty similar to the bronze/ gold ones I already have, so might not be using this for a while. I quite like the other one as it's sort of grey but with a purple hint to it so this will be getting used through winter :)
Fashionista Lipstick £1.50
I'm really trying to get into lipsticks as my lips usually look really pale after all my make up's finished. This is the fashionista double take lipstick in Atomic Tangerine. Now I know what you're thinking, 'tangerine'? Who wants orange lips? But it's kind of a blush pink colour, make up names never match, I think they do it to throw us off.. I haven't actually tried it on my lips yet as they're pretty dry from the hot weather, going to have to stick to my Carmex for a little while longer.
I'm always buying new eyeshadow brushes, might be my laziness so I don't have to clean them so much but hey! This one is pretty good quality, despite the £1.95 price tag and none of the bristles pull themselves out as you're applying. I've read somewhere, think it was a Crownbrush blog, that applying lipstick with a lip brush gives it a smoother look, so again at £1.95 I thought, 'what have I got to lose?' It also splits so the bottom half acts as sort of a case which is handy for on the go! As for the primer, I haven't actually used it yet as the box came after I'd been out so my make up was already done, but it was reduced from £10 to £3 so can't complain, and it's always something I've wanted to try.
This is a part of MUA's £1 nail polish range (I love how cheap their website is!) and is in Coral blush. I think I picked the wrong one, as I was looking for a pillar-box red kind of colour, but it's pretty nice. Excuse my feet, my fingernails are actually painted black from the weekend still and I've ran out of nail polish remover :(. Unlike other cheap nail varnishes I've bought, this one is pretty darn good. It's not thin like most I've got and the colour's really vibrant.
I did also order the cream blush in blossom, but for some reason it was crossed off of my order, I think they'd ran out of stock. So still on the hunt for a nice cream blusher that won't make me look like a rag doll. Now for the amazing bit, all of this only cost me £18.20 including postage! So if you're on the lookout for some inexpensive but still great quality make up check out the MUA store online or in Superdrug :)
