I've never tried any MUA make up before, and was so excited when my lovely boyfriend said he'd treat me to some. I had so much to choose from. Gorgeous palettes, primers of all kinds, a bunch of beautiful lipstick - I could've spent a lot! This is what I eventually chose. However one of these lipsticks shown is from a blog swap I got involved in where you can see here. So here's what I got.
I had to get my hands on a few palettes as I've heard so much about them. On the top left we have Heaven and Earth, 12 shimmery beiges, browns, creams and golds - Perfect for everyday looks. Below that we have Poptastic, full of bright party colours. I felt most of these shades were very shimmery, with 2 or 3 colours that had a more matte look. On the right we have Glitter Ball, my favourite. This baby is packed full of glitter. Perfect for any night time club look. I will be swatching these all for you this week so you can have a more detailed look on these beautiful shades!
Now we have the face products. I picked up the Eye Primer because now being a student I can't buy the amazing Primer Potion by Urban Decay anymore! So I chose this to see if it lived up to its 'Long Lasting and No Crease' formula it claims to have. I don't wear foundation so I thought the BB cream would be right up my street. Because I'm so pale I wasn't sure if this would match, but it worked a treat. I also treated myself to the Mosaic Blush in English Rose which is full of lilacs, rose and sand colours. I can't wait to show you swatches and a more in depth description soon!
I love my eyeliners, and I wanted to try MUA's gel ones as I've never tried a gel before. I grabbed Tribe, a gorgeous bright metallic blue which I am so excited to use! I love using bright eyeliners under my eyes sometimes for an edgy look. I also picked up the classic black named Underground. I also chose Bright Orange intense colour eyeliner as I love orange!! Thought this would be perfect for fancy dress, and this is exclusive to online purchases, so I thought I may as well! Because spring is around the corner I picked up Lovely Lilac, a metallic soft purple which I can't wait to wear and show you.
If you're a regular here (If you are, then thank you so much and please let me know!) then you will know that I love my nail art and I've tried a bead nail effect before here by Accessorize. I'm really excited to show you the MUA Nail Constellation in more detail soon as the shade Pisces is gorgeous! I also picked up the Eye Dust in shade 3 that I will show you all soon!
Lastly we have lipsticks! You know I love my lipsticks! In order we have shade 7, Juicy shade 15, Nectar shade 16, shade 4, shade 3 and shade 5 which I got in my blog swap. Now I'm very puzzled. Some have names and some don't - and I like my products to be named and not numbered. A name gives the shade more personality. Also, two of my lipsticks on the right side are obviously shorter - So again, I am puzzled as to why. I will be showing you how these all look very soon and I can't wait for you to see them. Overall I got some gems thanks to my lovely boyfriend. I can't wait to swatch these all and show you how they look worn in the very near future.
