MUA Haul

Everyone seems to be going MUA mad recently and as they currently have a huge sale on, I thought I would invest in a few more products to add to my collection. And here they are...

 I had already seen this Eyeshadow Trio in Pink Sorbet in Superdrug but was in a rush and didn't have time to stop and buy it so this was first on the list. I'm pleased I waited too, as in store I would have paid the original price of £2.50 but online I got it for £1.25 - absolute bargain! 

I love the colours of this trio and can't wait to try it out.

Secret Gel Eyeliner - 24/7 Style

 This gel eyeliner then caught my eye. I was actually looking for a black/dark brown gel eyeliner and on the website this looked solid black. It was only when it arrived that I realised it was glittery and had a dark green shimmer to it! But as I already have a black gel eyeliner from a different brand I thought this was actually quite fun! This was a great saving too, costing £1.50 instead of £6!

Top: Maxi-Moisture Lipstick in How Do I Look?
Bottom: Power Pout in Broken Hearted

Moving onto lips, I got one of their Maxi-Moisture Lipsticks and one of the Power Pout Lip Crayons (dupe of the Clinique Chubby Stick). I purchased the lipstick in 'How Do I Look?' and the crayon in 'Broken Hearted'. Although these look similar in colour, once on the lip, the Power Pout crayon is actually quite a hot pink. The lipstick should have been £7 but I got it for £1.50 (BARGAIN!!) and the crayon wasn't in the sale but was only £3.

I have only worn this a couple of times as I wore it yesterday after it arrived but have already fallen in love with it and want to buy all the other colours too! One of the best things about it is that it smells really minty and so makes your lips tingle when first applied.

I also bought the F3 Concealer Brush as although I have quite a few make-up brushes, I don't have a specific concealer one so thought I would give this one a go. It was £1.95.

I have never tried Make Up Fixing Spray and as this one was only £5, I thought I would try it out and see what I think. I will probably review this in a few weeks once I have tried it out for a while!

Nail Constellation - Pisces

I am not sure how much success I am going to have with this nail art, but I thought I would give it a try. I love the colour of these, which is why I chose Pisces even though its not my star sign! According to the little instruction booklet you sprinkle these over wet nails and then press them in. Once dry cover with a top coat and ta-da! These were £1.50 reduced from £3. If these are successful I will definitely blog about them!

Finally, I bought the Britain's Next Top Model Palette. It was £12 but reduced to £7 at the moment so I couldn't resist. I think its an amazing price for what you get and cant wait to try it out. There are some colours I wouldn't wear (e.g. turquoise!) but plenty I will be trying. And the bronzer, blusher and highlighter will definitely be used!

I haven't swatched any of this palette as it would have taken a while but if you would like to see swatches let me know and I will do a separate blog post!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I bought. Have you purchased anything from MUA recently? What is your favourite product?
