MUA-Make-Up Acadamy


I have to tell you about some eyeshadows. They are not new, but they do have some new colours in, which are absolutely fantastic and the pigment is out of this world!

They are by MUA-Make-Up Acadamy and you can purchase these in Superdrug. They do many colours and they also do other products. But, the price is ridiculous! For 2grams of eyeshadow, you only pay £1.00 per pot. Yes, you did read correct........ONE WHOLE POUND!!

For the quality of these eyeshadows, the price is mental and they will last you for quite a long time too!

As I said earlier, they come in many colours. But the colours that stood out to me where the ones below.

 From left to right:

The first colour is new and it's Shade 24-Pearl, the middle one is Shade 6-Pearl and the last colour is Shade 11-Pearl.

Shade 24 Pearl is like a pinky copper/bronze colour. Shade 6 Pearl is a very bright cool green and Shade 11 Pearl is a deep bronze/brown. They are all very stunning!

Below I have swatched them on my hand.

When I swatched these, I literally ran my finger through the pigments once and this is the result. Amazing ay?!! Simply beautiful!

You should try them if you haven't, and if you have tried them.....then buy some more!!

Plus they don't test on animals.....yay!! I have made a promise to my friend and to myself that I will find out if products are used on animals. If they are, I will not buy them. If not, I will buy them and wear them with pride!!

Lots of Love

I'm Back! August Faves!!

Howdy Ho Peeps!!

I'm real sorry that I have left you to defend for yourselves! I have been mega busy and in between celebrated my 30th birthday.......YES, the BIG 30!
There was a part of me that was slightly depressed, turning 30. However, after looking back through the years, I realised that I have achieved quite a lot! And 30 is not mega old, is it?!!

So I missed most of August on here, but that didn't stop me from purchasing a few things! So I will let you know what I bought and what I used and liked throughout August.

Kicking off with a hair product, I have been using HASK Argan Oil Healing Shine Treatment.
It comes in a tiny 18ml bottle and I got this from Primark and it only cost me £2.50 a bottle. Your probably thinking that 18ml is not that big of a bottle, and your right it's not! Although, you only need a tiny bit of this stuff as it's a pure oil and too much will only make your hair looking like a grease ball! I use a 2p size amount for my hair, but my hair is very long and pass my bra strap when down. So if shorter use less.
It contains Keratin Amino Acids, Jojoba and a whole load of other stuff, and I have even compared it to many other oils that are similar. And to be honest the ingredients are practically the same to the more expensive ones.
I use this mainly on damp hair, but you can use it on dry too. I massage it from root to tip and then style as normal. It smells incredible and makes my hair shiny and very healthy looking too. I give this a huge thumbs up and have already purchased another bottle!

Another fantastic item/s that I got were the Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner.

They come in 4 colours, Black, Brown, Teal and Gold. I only purchased the teal and gold as I have the other colours in other eyeliners. They cost £4.99 each and for that price they are a real bargain! They are really pigmented and last for hours. The teal dries very matt, but the gold has a slight shimmer to it.

To make the colour really pop, you could also add a black eyeliner first, then one of these colours over the top or beside it.

They also come with a little brush, which for me I find hard work. Only because I feel that I need a longer handle to have control. But maybe for a beginner, these would be great. They also include instructions on the back of the box. I love these little pots and I think they are a great price too, for such good quality gel liner. You can buy these either in Superdrug or boots or online and I really think you should go out and buy them and give them a whirl!!

Let me know what you think if you buy any of these products, or if you simply need a hand with any tips or question then please contact me or leave a comment! Also please like my Facebook Page and you will be entered in a free prize draw to win £50.00 worth of make-up.

I will be in contact more often guys and I promise I won't leave it so long till the next blog!

Love and Hugs
