I've tried to keep it as short as possible most of these products have been around long enough for you to have seen 400 reviews on them already.
I haven't bought all of this at once, it's over the last month or so and I'll be doing it in 2 parts. The second part will be just the MUA brushes, everything else will be this post. As you can tell, I really like natural looking make up.. a "my face but better" kind of look, I'm not sure if I do it cause it suits me or cause I'm too chicken to try something different! Anyway, here goes!
Revlon lip butter - Creme Brulee.
I have wanted this since it come out so I finally stopped umming and ahhing and just bought it! To me, it is the perfect lip colour. It's a well pigmented, easily buildable, natural/nudey colour with a shimmer, I just love it. I also really like the packaging, it doesn't feel cheap. Unfortunately, it doesn't last ages but I love it enough not to care.
MUA - Heaven and Earth palette
I bought the Undressed palette first but was only really using the neutral colours so I thought I may as well get this one too! I love it, the colours have good pigmentation and although they all look very similar, they do look different when you actually use them. This is the only palette I tend to use now..
MUA blusher - Shade 2
I didn't own a blusher before but was wanting to give it a try since wearing make up more often.. This is a nice dusky, natural looking pink, highly pigmented so it will last a while but it's quite soft so be careful if you're heavy handed like me!
MUA mascara - Shade 1 (clear)
I bought this just for my eyebrows as they tend to have a mind of their own! I have never liked clear mascara on my eyes as it doesn't do anything on me but it does a good job of keeping my eyebrows in check :)
MUA Sheer Finish Lipgloss - Some Me Time.
I bought the brown one of these a couple of months back and knew I wanted to get more because they smell soo good! It comes out sheer but has a very slight shimmer to it and like most lipglosses, it doesn't last too long but for the price you can't really moan. I like how you don't need to dip your germy finger in it to apply it.
MUA lipstick - Shade 11.
This is a brownish matte colour but applied once it gives a "my lips but better" look which I really like. I don't tend to layer it up as I don't think it would suit me. It isn't drying and it doesn't last forever but again, for the price you can't moan. Oh it smells nice too :D
17 - Miracle Matte pressed powder - Ivory Porcelain.
I spotted this in Boots last week and couldn't leave without it, I have oily skin so this sounded perfect for me as it's oil free and claims "up to 16 hours shine control" - I don't think I've ever worn make up that long but I did find I needed a top up after around 4 hours but until that point it's great. I like how it has a mirror in the top too, handy!
Collection - Shade 47/Milkshake.
This is the kind of colour I've been looking for for a while now. I have a lot of similar shades but this one is spot on for me. It is a neutral creamy light pinky brown colour and I only needed ONE COAT! :O With a good base/top coat I found it lasted 3/4 days which is good for me. I got on ok with the brush, it's not super duper but it's not crap. I will definitely repurchase.
Collection - Cream Puff - Angel Delight.
This stuff is like velvet on your lips, ooh it's soft! This is a brown matte colour and I like to team it up with the brown MUA Sheer Finish lipgloss. It lasts reasonably well and it isn't drying when using on it's own. I use it a lot and really want to try the other colours but they're always sold out in my local Superdrug :(
Collection - Super Size Fat Lash mascara - Ultra Black.
I have to be honest, I only picked this up because it's pink! I'm not completely disappointed by this mascara, although I wouldn't repurchase because it just didn't amaze me. It does give volume but it also gives a lot of fall out by the end of the day so I tend to wear this if I know I won't have make up on for long, like a meal out.
Aand that is it for part 1! Phew that felt long! I will get part 2 up in the next few days.
