The Review – MUA

MUA is another brilliant low cost beauty brand, similar to Makeup Revolution. As a lover of cheap makeup it’s no surprise that I really like them. Not only are they great value but they also work!

I have two lip products, both the Sweet Sheen Lip Balm, one in ‘Coral Reef’, and the other in ‘Peach Dream’. These products are tinted lipbalms, and I was drawn to them as I wanted some more pink shades for spring, but really bright lip colours scare me, so I though these would be a great solution!

When you put them on they do definitely feel balm-like and they also have a very pleasing wash of colour. You can see in the swatches that these are very pigmented without being overpowering, which is the main thing I love about them.

The do last as well for at least a couple of hours, and don’t seem to wear off too much from drinking etc. The only criticism I have is that they tend to dry out my lips after an hour or so of wear, but I’m talking pretty minimal dryness that I also get from most lipbalms. They don’t make my lips chap loads at all which is a pet peeve of mine when it comes to lipsticks, so that’s fantastic!

The other product I own is the Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter in ‘Iridescent Gold’. This is my favourite product from them by a long way, and my current favourite highlighter. I’m obsessed with that glowing look and this highlighter just looks stunning on the skin. I’ve heard that it could be a dupe for the NARS highlighter in Albatross, and from the pictures I’ve seen it certainly does look similar, although I have no way of comparing the two. It’s a very fine shimmer as well so you don’t look like you have glitter on your cheeks which means it’s perfect for day as well as night.

All in all I am very impressed and will definitely be buying from them again! Have you guys tried any of their products? What did you think?

Much Love xoxo
