Mua Haul #2

Since discovering MUA i went a little crazy and have bought quite a bit. Stuff i probably didn't need but couldn't resist at such affordable prices and quality to match top brands, why wouldn't i have a splurge. I haven't tried them all properly yet but have done a few swatches on my arm that i would like to share with you.

The Artiste Collection

From top line left to right.

6 Marbled Eyeshadow
Pistachio, Mocca, Ice, Grape, Chocolate and Cookie.

 I love how MUA have started naming there shades, it makes it more exciting and nicer then just the usual shade 1 and so on. Like all MUA palettes and eye shadows there highly pigmented and truly beautiful shades. Have tried Cookie on so far and i am really impressed as always it's such a stunning golden brown. I find some of the shades to be quite metallic like which is great for night time. I got this free on the MUA website when i spent over £6.00 and it's also available free in selected superdrug stores when you spend over £6.00 too. The case as always is modern and quite simple but i find this to be thick and more sturdy then other cases, which i prefer. 

The bottom line from left to right is 2 Blushes, 1 bronzer and 1 highlighter.

Pink sparkle, primrose, Bronzed, Shimmer Kiss.

Have wore primrose and it's a beautiful blusher and gives me colour without it being too much. The highlighter is quite creamy. 

£6.00 on it's own

Extreme Felt Liner 

I love Smokey eyes so much at the moment and after seeing a tutorial on MUA's blog i knew i had to buy this to try and create the same look. This is a felt tip with a thin end but depending on how hard you apply the product can come out thick. The more you apply the darker it goes. When have experimented more with this i will defiantly do a post.

Only £2.00

Intense glitter eye pencils in silver and black

These are only £1.00 each, and each have particles of glitter in each of them with sharpeners at the end to sharpen the pencil. The black is highly pigmented the silver not so much so will need a few layers. There are many colour's available and could even be used has eye shadow, i can't wait to play around with these some more.

Now have got another two polishes, another magnet one Piccadilly circus this is a circle effect and a lovely glitter polish, the colour is gray but has purple undertones. I am still getting use to the magnet and i find it a bit of a struggle but once picked up properly it will be easy enough. 

I also purchased another mystical polish i really liked the last one i got in sea horse and decided to get jelly fish. This is a lovely purple filled with glitter, with two to three layers the coverage is perfect. I have no complains its such a stunning colour and easy to apply.

There you have it. To buy from MUA click here.
