Superdrug haul! I went to the MUA display in super drug today, and they had an offer on. If you bought £6 or more on MUA makeup, then you got their new Artiste palette for free! So I picked up 3 things for myself, and 2 things for my mum. Below Is photo of what I got, (including some hair dye, from L’oreal Paris – Feria, in ‘blackest black’)
MUA have a new line of blushers out, so I picked them up. They are a cream blush, new to their range. I’ve never tried cream blushers, only ever tried powder. So that will be fun. They had some lovely shades, I picked up. “BitterSweet” and “Blossom”.
(Top – BitterSweet) (Bottom – Blossom).
Below is a swatch of each blusher.
“These cream blushers are very versatile and multi-purpose. They can be directly applied to bare skin, layered over foundation or set with the matching matte blushers in the £1 MUA range. You can use blush perfection to highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity. The colour effects range from a light pink to warm shade, depending on method of application.” – MUA.
BitterSweet is a lovely soft pink blush. It’s much more subtle than powder blush (IMO) And so, makes it great for building up the colour gradually. I really love this shade, and the name! I havnt worn this yet, so cannot give a proper review, but when I do use it, I shall do a summary on it for you. 🙂
Blossom is a much more nude based pink. Really nice if you’re not a fan of, in your face, pink blushes.
Overall These blushes are fantastic value for money, at only £2 each! And come in 4 gorgeous shades!
Now, onto the palette! 😉
It’s a combination palette, as it has 6 marble eyeshadows (which all have names, which is a first for MUA) As well as two blushers, and also a bronzer and a highlighter. It’s all in a compact case, which is great for on the go!
Marbled effect eyeshadows –
It’s swatch time! 😉
The shadows are well pigmented, and also have a slight shimmer to them. They all have great names too! 😀 (I’m a sucker for nice names for makeup!) hahaha.
Mmmm, cookie and chocolate? Sounds good enough to eat, and they look gorgeous too! I have a feeling that those two will be my favourite in this palette.
Oh stop! You’re making me blush –
The Artiste collection palette also has not one, but two powder blushers.
Again, with lovely names…
Pink sparkle is much more lighter, than Primrose. They seem to have really nice pigmentation, as well as soft and easy to apply.
Bronzed beauty –
Lastly, you get 1 bronzer and 1 highlighter. now, I don’t use bronzer. This one is a rich tan colour. However, I will use the highlighter, as it’s a gorgeous subtle tone, with shimmer. In fact it is so subtle that when I tried to photograph a swatch, my camera could hardly pick it up. (it’s visible to the naked eye). Perhaps I need to wait there is better light…
So, overall this palette is brilliant! Wide choice of eye shadow colours and shades. All with strong pigments. Two lovely blushers to choose from, as well as a bronzer and highlighter! 🙂
I looked up the RRP of this, and it retails at £6. However, if you spend £6 or more on their MUA makeup in Superdrug, then you get the palette for FREE! KA-CHING!!!!
Stay beautiful xoxoxoxoxo
