I have a few MUA products (Make Up Academy) and what I have used has always been very reliable and a great price. I couldn’t wait to test these out and share with you lovely ladies!

The first thing that caught my eye was this beauty…..Photo 21-12-2014 6 23 04 pm

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer – Reckless

Oh my goodness, I have never used anything like this before and I am thrilled that I have now! At first glance I thought ‘great another lipgloss that will spend more time on my teeth then my lips’ but once I opened and applied it I was pleasantly surprised.

It has a thick texture and very bright pigment. It is easy to apply and dries fairly quickly and the result you get is this….

(Excuse the pout) How gorgeous is this? I would advise on wearing a lip liner with this to keep it within your lip lines. Once on, I then drank some water, ate some food and tried to remove some with my finger and it stayed put. This is definitely long wearing lip lacquer and perfect for parties.

These are called Lip Switch Duo’s and contain a lipgloss and a lipstick so you can choose whether you want a more matte look or a super glossy bright look, perfect for those nights out!

A make up look isn’t complete without some eye shadow and I was lucky enough to receive this gorgeous Winter Forest  palette, giving you the perfect matte look for winter and these two Pearl singles. I am wearing the brown Matte colours in the image above with the Lip Lacquer. These are perfect to wear on their own or built up to create a subtle, matte smoky eye, using the cream shadow as a base.

And before any of this you, of course, you need to apply a base. Included in their wonderful pack was the Pro-Base Prime & Conceal Powder which is used to even out skin tone and illuminate and the Pro-Base Argan Plush Concealer in Natural. I used the Prime and Conceal Powder underneath my eyes to make them appear less tired and it does indeed give them a glow and even the colour out. I mixed the green and purple together to create the desired effect. I then used the concealer to cover up my spotty areas which it does really well.

These products are truly wonderful and can all be found here http://www.muastore.co.uk/.
