MUA Lipgloss & Pressed Powder

20130519-225740.jpg

Just a quickly!

I got some lovely pressed powder and a lipgloss from Makeup Academy recently and thought I’d better post a review now I’ve had a chance to use them ☺

The pressed powder is lovely and was a bargain at £1. It comes in four shades which you can see here, these don’t cover as many skin tones as I’d like but then most cosmetics companies are guilty of this!

The powder has no real smell which is fine for me as I can be sensitive to perfume. It goes on well, I use a Kabuki brush, and lasts. I find it doesn’t cake and when I load my brush there’s not a lot of powder lost. I’m using this regularly and it’s really lasting, an absolute bargain!!

The lipgloss is also a bargain at £1, unfortunately it’s out of stock on the MUA website at the mo though you may still find it instore at Superdrug.

The lipgloss has a very fruity smell and a sweet taste. It goes on well and lasts. What I don’t like though is the gloss is very sticky and gloopy! My hair gets stuck in it if it’s windy bleurgh!

It is a nice gloss for the price though and comes in a lot of colours!

So there you go a quicky update with bargains xx

Yummy Apricot Exfoliating Mask by Superdrug

Another day another face mask and this time it’s a really lovely apricot one!

I love the Superdrug face masks they’re such good value for money and I’m working my way through the whole range. You can find it here and it includes some for men, though I’d argue anyone could use any of them!

So, this is the Apricot Exfoliating Mask and I have to say it’s one of my faves so far! It feels lovely on the skin and the smell is so lovely!!!

My skin looked lovely and clear after and felt really clean, it didn’t feel too taut or dry and my moisturiser went on well.

For 99p this is well worth every penny. I have to be careful with scented products as my skin can be über sensitive and I was very pleased with this as I didn’t even get a tingle!

I will definitely be buying this one again as it really is lovely! Go treat yourself ☺ today xx

BUAV Score on Cruelty Free in Europe!

New Leaping Bunny (BUAV) Approved Cosmetics/Beauty Range B. At Superdrug

Hi,

Just a quicky!!!! 🙂

Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates and communications with my wonderful blogger friends, my computer has had a little meltdown and I’ve only had my phone to update the blog.  My wonderful hubby seems to have revived the poor thing and I’m hoping the normal service will be resumed imminently!

Secondly, I’ve just been advised by one of my wonderful friends that Superdrug have added a new Brand to their cosmetics/beauty range called B., find the website here.  This is brand spanking new and I’ve not been able to find anything about it on the internet.

They do a skin care range which can be tailored to your skin type and is similar to the Clinique 3 step range.  There is a diagnostic tool on the B. website which will help you determine which products are suitable for you skin!  It’s quite detailed and when the result comes through there are recommendations for the products that would work well with you skin.

There is also a comprehensive cosmetic range which features pretty much everything a girl would like.  The colour palettes give plenty of choice and clicking on the colour will show the product in that colour.

Pricewise this is really reasonable and is comparable with a lot of the big brands like Nivea et al. 

Top all that off with the fact this is Leaping Bunny approved, Vegetarian & Vegan friendly and does not contain Parabens and you can see why I’m a little excited about trying it out!  I’ll be off to Superdrug to check it out as I’ve been looking for a good beauty regime since giving up the big bad brands!

Hurrah for new products 🙂

 

Unfortunately, Superdrug do not ship internationally 😦

Crimbo Haul

20130114-222129.jpg

I was a very lucky girl this year as Mr Love Beauty Not Cruelty got me all this MUA stuff for crimbo!

I’ve been poop, to say the least, at updating my blog so I thought I’d do a quicky on MUA Cosmetics.

The company has expanded enormously in the last 6 months and my crimbo haul reflects this, here is a list of the best of the expansion which doesn’t seem to be stopping!

1. Brushes – For me this is a biggy as I’ve been able to get cheap brushes and try them out to see if they work for me! I have about 5 now and they really are good considering the most expensive brush they do is £5 (kabuki) and the average is £1.95 or £3! They’re synthetic but hey, if all you want is an idea of wether a brush will work for you or not they’re spot on and they work alright too!

2. Pro Base Face Range – Fantastic range of palettes to highlight, brighten, conceal and generally sort out all those weird and wonderful facial imperfections (I personally think they’re our quirks!), we ladies love to cover up. Price range £2.50 – £6 and there’s a fixing mist also!!

3. Nail Constellations – Little, tiny, balls of magic that you put on your nail varnish to create a mental “hundreds and thousands” affect! These are brilliant and they even have a video demonstration on the site to show you how to do them, go on give it a whirl!!! The price of these cosmic balls? 2 of our English pounds!

4. Fur-Effect Nails – Meow! Furry nails, weird right? But in a good way, really fun way of standing out and according to MUA’s Facebook page very popular with the beauty editors they tried them out on. The next big thing??????

This is just a small example of the stuff MUA are doing at the mo and more stuff is being added every day. Check out their Facebook page for all the new products that are being released. They’re very good at keeping fans up to date and do some amazing offers including massive discounts and loads of free stuff!

I predict big things to come from this company and they ship internationally!! Go have a little sneaky peek and become obsessed like me ☺

Post Party Blues? Superdrug Sensitive Deep Cleaning Mask To The Rescue!

20121209-201259.jpg

After a hiatus of 2 months I’m back and I’ve found a little treat for the morning after the night before!!!!

This little beauty is a lovely mild, creamy mud mask that will give your skin the pick me up you need after a night on the tiles!

It does leave the skin feeling slightly tight but a good moisturiser will soon alleviate this.

There is no real scent and my skin didn’t get blotchy or itchy! It felt lovely against my skin and dried well without pulling too much.

Overall this was lovely and my skin felt very smooth and clean. Definitely a must for the morning after the night before!

Hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you a FAB New Year!!!
