Today i went for shade 11 which is probably my favourite out of the 3 that i purchased. Its a gorgeous neutral deep browny-pink colour which to be honest looks boring as hell on the stick but really pretty on the lips, and great on a pale skin tone like mine. I was suprised at how smooth the texture of this product is and it left my lips feeling really moisturised and soft. I also found it stained my lips slightly meaning even when i thought i'd rubbed it all off i was still left with some colour. A big one for me is the horrible nasty taste you can get with some cheap lipsticks that really puts you off wearing them but these don't have that at all. For the £1 pricetag.. its a fantastic lippy! and i can see this being in my handbag for the rest of the summer.
This was the product i was most excited about trying, the "extreme felt liner" .. I used to be big into eyeliner in my school days and then i kind of grew out of it.. But now i think i've realised that i have quite small eyes and eyeliner in the right places really helps to make them look bigger! On paper this product looks perfect; the dark colour you get from a normal eyeliner but the precision of a fine tipped pen, however i found it really hard to use. The eyeliner inside doesnt really soak the end of the pen properly so if you try applying with just the tip it feels quite dry and comes out patchy meaning you have to re-appy over and over to get a proper line. Also, because the tip is quite rigid, and not bendy and flexible like a normal eyeliner it's hard to use it on the more fiddly hard to reach places of your eye - you feel like your stabbing yourself! Overall i wasn't very impressed with this, but for the price (£2) it was worth a try and i think it would good for touching up on the go.
I've been quite stubborn with bronzers recently and haven't really branched out to try new brands but this one was only £2.50 and i really liked the shimmer it had. I also think anything too orange based looks ridiculous on my natural skin (unless i'm going tango for a night out) so the lighter brown and pink shades in this really appealed to me. This product definately delivers, it leaves my cheeks with a lovely sunkissed glow which is perfect for a natural look or can be topped up if you prefer a more obvious colour. I love this bronzer! - it's pretty to look at too :)
I completely forgot to take a picture of my face with all the products and by the time i remembered the daylight had done one so i'll try and take another one soon so you can see everything together.
I'm still to properly try out the rest of my MUA haul but i'll be back to you with my opinions on that soon!
I can't wait to get some wages and try some more of this range. A few more lippes and possibly the mosaic blusher and eyeshadows, has anyone tried these?
