L'Oreal True Match Foundation W4 | Review

L'Oreal True Match Foundation - £10.29 (Link here)

Hey Dolls! Happy Easter to all of you, I hope you eat your body weight in chocolate and are looking forward to indulging in some family time! I'm sure I'm not the only blogger out there who has been taking full advantage of the Boots 3 for 2 offer across make up, nails and accessories. I left with more than I bargained for a couple of days ago, but all in the name of beauty I suppose! Some of you may know that my go-to face during the week is all made up of drugstore products as I like to crack out my higher end products over the weekend. I've also made it no secret that I absolutely adore Rimmels 'Wake Me Up' foundation. A week or so ago I felt I wanted to experiment with something completely new. so I picked up the L'Oreal True Match foundation.

Of course it's a no brainer that I love the packaging - give me a sleek glass bottle any day and it's a winner to me! It comes with a mirrored pump applicator and transparent plastic lid, so is pretty handy if you wanted to pop it into your make up bag. I went for shade W4 as it's pretty much identical to a MAC NC25 which I got matched up with a few months back. It does have quite a yellow undertone, which I love as it cancels out any pigmentation on my cheeks nicely. To find your match a bit easier, the shades are broken up into three categories: Warm, Neutral and Cool. If you know your undertone, you can go straight to the appropriate category and figure out your exact shade which makes it a breeze choosing the right colour.

Don't be fooled by the bottle this comes in, the consistency is alot more liquid than I was expecting. At first I found it a little difficult to work with as I was used to the thicker consistency of Rimmel's Wake Me Up, but I soon got used to it. It's very lightweight so is a dream to glide onto the face and blend. What I love about its consistency is the fact it doesn't cake or dry before you've finished blending into your entire face like some drugstore foundations do, so once I set it with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder, my skin has a flawless matte finish. For a drugstore foundation, I was really surprised by the coverage True Match offered. I'd say it's medium to full but buildable coverage, and covers everything if I happen to be having a good skin day. I do still use my trusty Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer under my eyes, but only to add shadow and definition as I go ahead and contour/highlight once the foundation sets. I use Revlon's Photoready Primer and MUA's finishing spray on a daily basis which definitely contributes to its staying power, and I'm never left patchy or with dreaded make up sliding.  

Overall, I think I may have found yet another drugstore holy grail product. As much as I hate to admit it, I think I'll be putting my trusty Rimmel Wake Me Up to one side until I finish this bottle. I love discovering new drugstore gems, and I seem to be spending more and more time in Boots while their offer is on! I've also managed to collect £60 worth of points but have absolutely no idea what to spend them on, so if you have any recent posts on some Boots products your loving be sure to leave your link below!

Hask Argan Oil Hair Treatment| Review

Hask Argan Oil Hair Treatment - £2.50 Primark

Hey dolls! As I mentioned in one of my recent posts, I've become a little obsessed with oils recently. Hair oils, body oils, nail oils - you name it, I love them. Something which is an absolute staple in my haircare routine is argan and moroccon oil. They really do make the world of difference to your hair, leaving it sleek, shiny and in all round better condition. I have to admit that I've tried my fair share, so buying anymore wasn't really necessary. But the Hask Argan Oil was an absolute steal at only £2.50 for the tube. Good old trusty Primark! It comes in a plastic brown opaque tube with a blue pop top lid. Definitely not ideal if you're travelling although it's really compact. I had an accident with my previous tube where the lid popped off and it leaked inside my vanity case - well that experience was horrific to say the least, but it didn't stop me from repurchasing it.

The only way I can describe the scent of this is that it's identical to Terrys chocolate orange - amazing. I find that the scent lingers for quite a long period of time, at least until the next time I apply it. It's not an overly greasy formula and it definitely doesn't weigh hair down, it's more of a watery like texture, but still has the same effect on my hair higher end brands do. It says it can be used on wet or dry hair, I've never personally used it on my own hair dry but it does work wonders on hair extensions. The oil itself softens the cuticles of the hair due to the added keratin which leaves it feeling silky soft and easy to style. I'm not usually a fan of freshly washed hair when it comes to styling as I find it quite unmanageable but after using this it leaves a nice enough consistency to style as normal.

I'm really impressed by this little gem. I'll definitely repurchase this time and time again, or at least until Primark discontinue it. I find it to have become a real staple in my haircare routine and can definitely tell the difference in the look and feel of my hair if I hadn't used it. You need the smallest amount to cover the mid lengths and ends of the hair, so a tube of this size will last a good while. Have you tried this type of Argan oil?Do you find that if you spend more on oils they have a better result?

Lush 'Oatifix' | Fresh Face Mask

Lush Oatifix Face Mask - £5.95 (Link here)

Hello lovely ladies! I hope you're all well and are enjoying the feeling of a brand new fresh week. I promised I'd got my blogging mojo back after lacking in posts recently, so I'm back with a review of something I've been absolutely loving lately. For some reason, I've become quite attached to Lush products recently. There's just something about them which really lifts my mood and make pamper evenings that bit more relaxing and girly. As I'm sure some of you also know, I love nothing better than a good face mask and have bought quite the collection over the past few weeks, one of my favourites being Lush's 'Oatifix'. 

Now if you're a regular reader of my blog then you'll know I'm an absolute sucker for anything with a shea butter/almond/honey/oat scent. I have no idea why, but anything which smells nutty and sweet is an absolute winner in my books! Products with ingredients like this in them tend to be for more dry skin, and although I have an oily skin type I couldn't resist picking this up. With the weather being ridiculously cold recently, I felt that my skin needed a bit more 'oomph' in terms of moisture to restore hydration, so was in search of some great new products to do just that (I've been loving the Botanics Facial Oil too, read my post here). I was tempted to pick up my beloved 'Cupcake' face mask, but after smelling this and have the lovely shop assistant apply it to the back of my hand it had to be mine. The same guidelines with all of Lush's products apply; you still need to keep it in the fridge and it still has a use by date. 

Oatifix is a blend of crushed bananas, ground almonds, oats and honey so as you can imagine works absolute wonders on dry and sensitive skin. It's a really thick formula, but at the same time really nice to apply. It doesn't apply in chunks, instead in glides onto the skin with ease without any product drop off. Other than smelling like absolute heaven, it deeply moisturises pores and eliminates flaky skin after only one use. After I leave it on for a good 10 or 15 minutes, I don't find that my face feels waxy or slippery, just really hydrated and extra soft. As you remove it, it also doubles up as an exfoliator because of the ground oats in the formula, so no more mixing two products for a decent home facial!

Boots Botanics | 100% Organic Facial Oil

Boots Botanics Facial Oil - £9.99 £4.99 (Link here)

Hey dolls! I've somehow lost my blogging mojo a bit over the last week - I haven't really felt up to posting anything new, but I promise I'm here to stay now! Being a bit of a self confessed skincare junkie, I'm constantly on the lookout for new products to try out. I have an oily skin type so anything which screams 'oil free' or 'deep cleansing' is a winner in my books. 'Why have you been using a straight up oil then?' I hear some of you ask. After doing some research, I found out that by using some kind of oil on an oily skin type, it actually eliminates excess oil (how many times did I just say the word oil?) around the T-zone. I was a bit apprehensive to say the least as I had visions of being an oil slick after using something like this, but I actually have to say I my skin has never looked and felt so great in a really long time. 

'This aromatic oil melts into lacklustre skin to lock in moisture for 8 hours while softening, conditioning, and helping to restore its natural glow. Use regularly to boost the performance of your daily skincare regime'

Whilst I was out shopping, I came across the Botanics range which is a collaboration between Boots and Kew Gardens in London. They offer 100% natural products which all smell absolutely amazing, not to mention all of the products were half price too. I'm not too keen on the packaging, which is odd as I usually really like sleek and simple designs. It's a matte glass bottle with a pipette applicator which isn't ideal if you're travelling anywhere but this is definitely made up for as it's definitely become a staple in my skincare routine. You can never overdo application as the pipette picks up the perfect amount to cover the entire face. It says to apply after cleansing and toning, and it literally melts into my skin; for that reason, I only tend to use it at night. 

I've gone a bit oil crazy at the moment. What's great about this is the fact that it's so multi purpose. You can use it on nails, hair, your body, just about anything. The smell is slightly nutty which of course is right up my street as anything with a shea butter/honey/almond scent has to be mine! I've been using this religiously every night for about three weeks now and I honestly have noticed a huge difference in my skin. It's alot softer, more supple and has calmed down uneven pigmentation in my cheeks. I don't suffer with dry skin at all, but if you were more on the dry side then I think this would be a real godsend. Once this finishes (which will be a long while as a little goes a long way) I'll definitely be repurchasing it, even at full price. Have you tried any facial oils? Have you tried anything from the Boots Botanics range? What did you think?

Sleek Blush in 'Suede' | Review

Sleek Blush in Suede - £4.49 (Link here)

Hey dolls! I've been really quiet in the beauty blogosphere for the past week. I haven't had the chance to just sit down and write as I've been so busy, but I promise I have loads of posts planned for the next couple of weeks or so. I took to the #bbloggers chat on Twitter on Wednesday evening, and shocked a few of you when I mentioned that I've never worn blush. I have no idea why, I just always skipped it and reached for my bronzer to sculpt and define my cheekbones instead. Over the past few weeks I've also been watching loads and loads of beauty hauls over on YouTube, and it shocked me just how many people named Sleek's 'Suede' as their go-to peach blush. With that being said, I decided to take the plunge and pick up one from Superdrug. I absolutely love Sleek make-up and swear by their 'Face Contour Kit', so was hoping the blush would impress me just as much. 

One thing that stood out for me was the packaging. It's a really sleek, matte black case with a slight rubber feeling to it (think Nars packaging) which is so compact and easy to pop in your make up bag on the go. It also has a full size mirror inside which you can never go wrong with. I have one little thing to pick on, and that's the fact it's quite hard to open. Just like the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, it's really easy to either break your nail or dent the powder inside while opening it. For a drugstore product though it definitely ticks all the boxes packaging wise, and for the price I'm definitely not one to complain. 

What drew me to 'Suede' was the fact it was a really warm, tawny shade. Sleek say it's a blush that 'elicits a wintery mocha glow' which I think is bang on, and although were beginning to go into Spring, I think I could get wear out of this year round. I also love the fact that it's matte as I'm not really a fan of shimmer on my face apart from my brow bone. It's pretty versatile on what it can do too, as it can be used to contour with or used as a blush and applied to the apples of the cheeks. It provides a really warm and natural wash of colour without looking ashy against my skin tone which is definitely a pet peeve of mine when it comes to make up. Another thing which stood out for me was the pigmentation, not just with this blush but all Sleek products. For a drugstore product this is ridiculously pigmented yet buildable if you want a more defined finish on the cheeks. It blends so easily if you were to go in with contour, blush and bronzer and is silky soft to the touch without having any colour fall out. 

Overall, I cannot believe I haven't tried blush sooner - what was I thinking?! I'll definitely be picking up more from Sleek soon (I've got my eye on 'Life's A Peach) and once I get to grips with them properly, I see myself splurging on some high end ones too. Are there any blush phobics out there or just me?

Real Techniques | Core Collection

Real Techniques Core Collection - £21.99 (Link here)

Hey there dolls, I hope you're all well now were approaching the weekend! If you'd have asked me a year ago what my favourite make up brushes were, I honestly wouldn't have had a clue. But a year on, I can safely say that Real Techniques are by far the best I've come across in terms of price and quality, and I've built up quite the collection. One thing I had on my wishlist for what seemed like forever was the infamous 'Core Collection' brush set, and I finally bit the bullet and popped one into my basket at Boots two weeks ago. Since then I've been using them religiously everyday and I have no idea what I done without them, they really are amazing. I always think that using good quality brushes makes the world of difference to the appearance of my make up, and Real Techniques is a brand that never fails to impress me. I recently posted about my favourite tools by them (read the post here), but after discovering the Core Collection, I can safely say I've added a couple more to my favourites.

The Core Collection contains four brushes and a stand alone panoramic case - for a mere £21.99 it works out at just over £5.00 for each brush which is an abolute steal. All of the brushes are part of the base collection, colour coded by the gold toned alluminium handle and the label/name on the side. I love the look and feel of all the brushes from Real Techniques, they're so sleek and I think the colour coding system (gold for base, pink for finishing and purple for eyes) is such a nice touch. It's a bonus that all of the brushes are 100% cruelty free, synthetic and stand up to maintain storage space. The brushes in the Core Collection aren't available for individual sale, however I think you could easily get use out of each brush. The brushes included are;

  • Detailer Brush - 'Precision cut to effortlessly conceal problem areas; or, use with lipstick for long lasting shape and definition'. Out of the four brushes, I haven't found that I reach for this as often. I like to blend my concealer using my usual foundation brush, but could see this being great for applying a darker lipstick if you were after a really defined lip.
  • Pointed Foundation Brush - 'Use with liquid foundation to build custom coverage'. I'm pretty happy with my 'Expert Face Brush' for my foundation, however I've got some use out of this and I quite like it. It applies my Rimmel Wake Me Up with ease and gets into eye sockets and hard to reach areas but I won't be completely parting ways with my other trusty brush.
  • Buffing Brush - 'Ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation'. This is the one item everyone gets most excited about! I'm yet to get into the mineral foundation hype, but when I do, this will be my go-to brush for application. The flat top makes it so easy to cover a larger area, and as the bristles are longer and wider than the Expert Face Brush, it's alot more flexible to work with.
  • Contour Brush - 'Delicately applies highlighter to contour or create sheer, soft-focus finish'. This for me was the one I got most excited about, I love a bit of contour! It's a very similar shape to the Blush Brush, only smaller making it a breeze to really get in to the hollows of my cheeks.
Once again, Real Techniques hasn't disappointed me in the slightest. I think the Core Collection is a great investment to my make-up brush collection, although I'm now on the lookout for nicer ways to store them. They all wash like a dream too, and don't malt like some high end brushes (ahem, MAC I'm looking at you). I'm considering buying the starter set for eyes, so if any of you lovely ladies have any reviews on it pretty please let me know in the comments. Have you tried the Real Techniques Core Collection?

HD Brows Palette in 'Vamp' | Review

HD Eye & Brow Palette - £19.99 (Link here)

Hey Dolls! Unfortunately we have come to the end of the week once again - it always seems that Monday to Friday drags and once the weekend is here it's over in a flash! I hope you all had an amazing Mothers Day and treated your Mum like royalty. I treated my Mum to the tinted moisturiser by Laura Mercier and some bath oils so as you can imagine she was over the moon. We also went out for the biggest roast lunch ever, and I think it's safe to say I won't be eating for weeks now. If you read my blog regularly, you may know I went along to the Professional Beauty exhibition at ExCel a few weeks ago (read my blog post here) and managed to come back with bags and bags full to the brim of both new products to try and some all time favourites. I'm still finding myself trawling through them, but one of my favourite things I picked up was the legendary HD Brows Palette. If you haven't heard of 'HD Brows', it's a relatively new salon treatment which combines methods such as tinting, waxing and threading to achieve the ultimate high definition brow. The company also have a range of products on the market to keep them looking fresh for up to 5 weeks, and probably their most popular product is the brow palette.

I really like the packaging of the palette - a glossy black compact with the HD Brows logo on the front set out into four separate pans with a mirror on the inside and a little double ended brush makes it so easy to carry around for any touch ups throughout the day, not to mention it fits snugly in my make up bag. One of my pet peeves is getting products dirty in my make up bag, but because this isn't a felt material it's easily cleaned and ready for action. Because the show was offering trade prices, I nabbed this for £14.00 whereas the usual price is £20.00, so I definitely picked up a bargain! Alot of people will be put off the price of this bad boy, but it's definitely an investment as it lasts forever and the quality is amazing. I love the look of a well defined, dark brow so I went for the darkest option 'Vamp'. There are three colours available in these, each suited to your skin tone and hair colour so choosing a colour is relatively easy. I decided a few months ago that I much prefer powders to pencils when it comes to eyebrows, so this ticks the box perfectly. 

Clockwise from top left: Nude, Carbon, Dark Brown, Rich Brown

I've become a bit brow obsessed recently, and I have no idea why. This sought after palette hasn't disappointed me in the slightest, and it also doubles up as eyeshadow too, not that I need any more of those than I already do! I combine 'Carbon' and 'Dark Brown' for my brows, and use 'Nude' and 'Rich Brown' as an eyeshadow base. I don't honestly use the brush it comes with, purely because it's such a small size and I find it hard to work with. Instead, I use my Smashbox Angled Brow brush which does the job perfectly. The pans themselves are really good quality. They're extremely pigmented, set in place easily and above all, don't smudge throughout the day. I don't find any problem with colour fall out either which is a huge bonus, and a little goes a long way. I've gotten into eyebrow gels and waxes the last few months, so to set my brows and lock in the colour, I'll go over them with my GOSH 'Defining Brow Gel, and I find they really compliment eachother. 

Overall I'm really impressed with the HD Brows Palette. I definitely made the right choice colour wise, and it's nicely replaced my Benefit 'Browzings' palette. Once I hit pan with this I'll definitely be repurchasing it. Have you tried the HD Brows Palette?

MAC 'Lady Danger' Matte Lipstick | Review & Swatches

MAC Lady Danger Lipstick - £14.00 (Link here)

Hello Girls! I took myself along to Westfield in Stratford on Thursday and only intended to do a bit of window shopping and pick up some hairspray and a few toiletries; of course this didn't happen, and I ended up coming home with bags and bags full of stuff. I finally got my hands on my first YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick too which I'm so excited to share with you all soon, but one thing I had to show you all was the newest addition to my MAC lipstick collection, 'Lady Danger'. I've been on the lookout for a matte red for as long as I can remember, and after swiping this on the back of my hand it was love at first sight. 

I dipped my toes into the 'Matte' finish lipstick pond a few weeks ago when I purchased 'Please Me', and I really love the formula of these. It makes a lovely change from the usual Cremesheen finishes, and I don't find them to be drying either. Lady Danger dons the regular black bullet style MAC casing which I really like, along with the silver band around the tube. The colour itself is described as a fiery orange-red which is definitely accurate to me. Because it has orange undertones, I reckon this would suit people with all skin tones and I love the little pop of glamour it gives to my make-up. I personally think that red lipsticks look alot nicer when I use a lip liner. I used my MAC 'Redd' lip liner to do the job yesterday and the colours really complimented eachother without looking too obvious.

I wore this all day yesterday and was super impressed with its staying power. I did use my Lush Bubblegum lip scrub to prime my lips before I applied it, and it took me up until about 3pm before I needed a top up - I didn't use any Lipcote with it either! Although I love the finish of Matte lipsticks, they do have a tendancy to dry in the cracks of my lips, but this had a way of avoiding that. Over the course of the day, it turned to a slight sheen rather than point blank matte, which still looked lovely. I can quickly see this becoming yet another favourite, and I think it will be great in Summer too. I've got my eye on 'Morange' as my next purchase, which I'll definitely be sharing with you all!

Have you tried MAC's Lady Danger?

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Polishes | Lychee & Dragonfruit

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint - £3.99 (Link here)

Hey there dolls! It's finally the end of the week so I'm definitely in high spirits. It seems that Spring is well and truly on its way and you know what that means - it's time to dig out the pastels and florals! Well, maybe not quite yet as the weather has other ideas, but the Barry M 'Gelly Hi Shine' range definitely says otherwise. I don't think you can ever go wrong with good old Barry M. They have such a large range of colours, and at £3.99 a pop where can you go wrong? I'm quite the nail polish whore and these two little beauties have been such a lovely addition to my ever growing collection. 

Gelly Hi Shine's have a very glossy finish, and as I've been donning matte nails over the past few months it was a gentle reminder as to how much I love gloss finishes. I was spoilt for choice in terms of colour, but after oomphing and aahing for several minutes I went for 'Lychee' and 'Dragon Fruit'. Lychee is a gorgeous muted beige which is super wearable and super versatile. I don't know about you, but I'm a huge fan of nude and brown nails, they go with any outfit you can think of. Barry M's 'Mushroom' has got to be one of my all time favourites, and I like to think of Lychee as its little sister - is that maybe a bit weird? Dragon Fruit is definitely a colour you can't go wrong with either, especially as Springtime is underway. I have an entire box of pink polishes, and these particular shades are the ones I most prefer. A candy pink which reminds me of Barbie, which isn't too in your face but still looks beautiful. 

I do find these to be that little bit gloopy when it comes to actually applying them, but having said that you can't become picky when you're paying under £4 for a product which will last a  hell of a long time. I always apply a base coat before a fresh pop of colour along with a top coat, so I never find that my nails chip anyway but the staying power of these is great too. Some polishes begin to fade and just look a bit unhappy after a few days, but these colours continue to look fresh with that just painted look. Sure, I still need two coats of both colours, but I don't expect a miracle - I haven't yet found a nail polish which I only need the one coat!

Have you tried the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Polishes?

Real Techniques | My Favourite Brushes

Left to Right: Powder Brush, Blush Brush, Expert Face Brush, Stippling Brush

Hey Dolls! Unless you've been living under a rock for the past year or so, you'd have heard of the legendary Real Techniques brushes that are sold in Boots and most recently Superdrug. These are so popular among the beauty blogging community and it's clear to see why as they're so great. I've built quite the collection over the last few months and thought that I'd share my favourites with you as I'd just cleaned them. Hoorah for freshly washed brushes!

The Powder Brush - I suffer with combination skin, so tend to get quite oily around my T-Zone. This makes me that bit more powder happy than other people but this brush works so well for me as it doesn't leave me looking chalky or patchy. I love the size of it, it coats my face with ease and picks up enough product at one time for me to work with not to mention it is ridiculously soft and feels unbelievable against the skin.

The Blush Brush - I may shock a few of you girls here, but I don't wear blusher. I never have and unless I find one I really like I probably never will. I'm much more of a bronzer type of girl and switched from my kabuki brush to this beauty. It's a relatively new purchase but it's been a staple when it comes to my foundation routine and applying bronzer. 

The Expert Face Brush - Out of my entire brush collection this is definitely my favourite! It's the newest addition to my little brush family and I'm completely head over heels in love with it! I recently bought the infamous Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation (which I'll definitely be reviewing in full sometime soon!) and it applies to the skin using this like a dream. It doesn't leave brush strokes and glides easily to cover problem areas so is perfect for more heavy foundations. 

The Stippling Brush - This was my first ever Real Techniques brush! I've said in the past I don't like BB Creams as they don't do anything for my skin, but on lazy days I'll wear tinted moisturiser instead of foundation. This brush applies it so well, and I also apply my primer using this brush too. I must admit this doesn't wash as well as my other brushes do, I have no idea why but it's still lovely to use!

MUA Undress Me Too Palette | Review & Swatches

Undress Me Too Palette - £4.00 (Link here)

Hello Ladies! Being a fan of a brown smokey eye for my everyday make up, I was so excited for MUA to launch their new palette, 'Undress Me Too'. I already own the infamous 'Undressed' palette, and this one is the follow up to it, but with new packaging and an introductory price. Just like the original being a Naked dupe, this is an amazing dupe for the Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay, and I thought I'd buy this to try out the shades before I splurge on the Naked 2 palette. Something fellow MUA fans may notice is the difference in packaging. Instead of the classic glossy black plastic casing, it's now matte white with a reflective logo on the front. I personally prefer this to the original, as it's nice and refreshing and something you can easily find in your make-up stash. I could hardly resist the mere £4 price tag either, it's every bloggers dream to find a good bargain. Something else which left me jumping for joy was the fact MUA have named their shades this time round, which makes it so much easier when naming colours and picking them out. Well done MUA! 

The pans themselves are arranged in colour order, from a pale matte champagne to a deep off-black matte. I love the arrangement of this palette. It makes it alot easier to make a colour choice and I personally think these all work together really well. Something I won't be using in this palette is the applicator. It's nothing against MUA but I'm happy using my Real Techniques shading brush to pat in the pigments and my Avon smudge brush to blend.

Naked - A matte pale champagne nude
Devotion - A shimmer medium toned gold beige
Shy - A pink toned nude matte
Fiery - A shimmer copper with pink undertones
Lavish - A matte chocolate brown
Dreamy - A shimmer deep brown with 
Tranquil - A shimmer alternative to 'Lavish'
Exposed - A shimmer grey, off silver
Reveal - An off pik pearl shade, perfect for highlighting
Wink - A shimmer off gold brown
Obsessed- Dark chocolate brown with hints of shimmer 
Corrupt - Dark matte black

Left to Right: Naked, Devotion, Shy, Fiery, Lavish, Dreamy

Left to Right: Tranquil, Exposed, Reveal, Wink, Obsessed, Corrupt
Sorry about my tangerine coloured arms! The setting on my camera makes me look really orange!

Something which impresses me every time with MUA is the product quality. All of them are unbelievably pigmented (apart from 'Naked' and 'Lavish') and the staying power is definitely above average. I use the MUA Pro Base primer on my eyelids everyday, so this may have something to do with it as I've noticed products from the same line have a way of complimenting eachother. I don't find that they crease or drop onto the skin, but admittedly you may need a few swipes for your desired colour pay off. Overall I am beyond impressed with this new addition to MUA. At such a small price tag I can definitely see it as a staple essential in my make up bag and I'm excited to see new product being launched soon. I've planned to do a post comparing the MUA Undressed palette and the Urban Decay Naked palette soon, so keep your eyes peeled! Have you tried the Undress Me Too palette?
