MUA Haulin!



Last week I popped into Shawlands to get my prescription from the doctors and ended up coming home with these lovely goodies! Oh MUA why you so darn cheap? The good news is that all the make up in Superdrug was on a 3 for 2 offer, and I also got a cheeky student discount with my NUS card, so all of this only came to about 800 pennies. Bargainous! 

The first thing I picked up was the lovely Undressed Eyeshadow Palette, which is apparently an amazing dupe for Naked 3! I don't own any of the Naked palettes, but I have another Urban Decay palette, which is amazing and super pigmented, so if the eye shadows are even close to the quality of that I'll be a happy bunny! The girls in my work swear by this palette, and they were actually quite surprised that, as a beauty blogger, I didn't already own it! (Oops!) I've also had my heart set on the Matte Velvet Lip Laquers ever since they came out, but I can never find them in stock! Apparently it was my lucky day and they had loads so I bought two; one in Kooky, and one in Reckless

That was supposed to be it, but I decided to pick up a Bronzer in shade 2, and obviously that meant I had to buy another two products to qualify for another 3 for 2. I popped a Blusher in the shade Cupcake into my basket, which is a lovely peachy pink, but slightly more muted than what I would normally go for. To complete the haul I settled on a Nail Varnish in Pistachio Ice Cream, only to discover later that I already have the exact same shade in one of Barry M's offerings. (Oops again!) 

So far I've tried the nail varnish and bronzer out and although I don't love the nail varnish it isn't bad for a quid. The bronzer is surprisingly pigmented, and contains no glitter or shimmer, which for me is a good thing. I think it might be just a little too dark for my skin tone though. I haven't tried out the palette or the lip laquers yet, so you might want to look out for a review in the near future :)

What do you lot think of MUA? Yay or nay?

  3. I love MUA products but apparently they might be discontinued soon, I'm not sure if it's true or not, I really hope it's not but if it is true then I really need to stock up on some lipsticks and eyeshadows! And I have the Undressed palette and it is absolutely amazing and I hope you like it! x
