REVIEW: MUA blushers....

Incase you haven't already noticed, I'm a HUGE fan of MUA products. The quality and price are amazing! I don't see the point in spending silly amounts on a product when I can buy just as good quality products for a fraction of the price. Anyway enough of me rambling on, lets get down to business. One of my fave things from the MUA collection is their £1.00 line blushers. They're SO pigmented, and without a doubt are the blushers I reach for each morning when I apply my make up. I only have three up to now, each time I go to my local superdrug they're always sold out (never a bad sign however) Here are the ones I have:

'Shade 2' is a dusky pink

'Shade 4' is a relly pretty mauve colour

'shade 5' is more of a peachy colour. A little similar to 'shade 4' but with a slight orange undertone

These blushers, like I said before, are extremly pigmented. A little amount goes a long way and they stay put all day. Two bad points: they're very powdery and the case that they come in breaks pretty easy. However I can totally overlook two bad points, because for £1.00 who am I to complain?!
Avaialable for £1.00 each from superdrug and

REVIEW: MUA/Love hearts lip balms....

As promised, here's my review on the MUA/love hearts lip balms. Somehow I don't think just saying I LOVE THEM will cut it right? :P

First of all, the packaging is so cute! They remind me of sleek pout polish (not that I have any or that I now want any that I have these bad boys!) The pot is made from solid plastic and has a screw on lid, which makes the pot pretty air tight. Each lip balm has a different name on the lid, and bottom, depending on which colour it is, rather than a product number (like other MUA products)

'Great lips' is a gorgeous sheer nude.

'sugar lips' is a sheer pretty pink

'Kiss me' is a beautiful sheer red

Each lip balm has a coloured tint to it, which is pretty sheer but very buildable, and I found with the red one 'kiss me' after a little while it leaves a bit of a stain on the lips which I don't mind at all. They have a slight vanilla smell which is gorgeous but not too overpowering and are quite moisturising. I definitely recommend these to everyone, for £2.00 per lip balm they're a must!

They are £2.00each and are available from superdrug and

MUA lovehearts lip balms...

I went back to superdrug yesterday to get the other MUA/lovehearts lip balms and could only get two *sad face* sooooo I went again today after work and they only had the ones that I've already bought *even sadder face* Either they only stock the three colours or the other two are everyones favourite. I managed to get my mitts on 'sugar lips' and 'great lips' I'm going to do a review on the three I have so won't waffle on too much, but I will say I LOVE THEM! Amazing product and I definitely recommend them :)

REVIEW: MUA Extreme felt liner.....

I'm in love with MUA's liquid liner for £1.00 but wanted to try out a felt liner to see if the application would be any different. So I figured why not try out the MUA one seeing as I love their liquid liner so much!

To be totally honest, I'm on the fence about this. The actual liner lasts all day, is jet black and I'd say was pretty waterproof (not sure if it's supposed to be or not)

Using this gives a really neat, straight line BUT I just find it kind of difficult to use. I like the tip of the brush/pen to be a little flexible, and this is stiff. I know it's supposed to be as it's a felt tip liner, I just find it difficult to do a full line. It's easy enough to use for a flick on the outer corner, just not all the way along.

This is available from superdrug for £2.00
