So, I have been trying out the MUA Heaven & Earth palette and the bargain lipstick. I’m now ready to make an informed opinion!
The lipstick has pros and cons.
On the positive side, I LOVE the colour (shade 7) and it applies well.
But unfortunately it just has no staying power for me. I had to reapply very frequently and this is something I hate in a product.
So for £1 it is an absolute bargain, yes. But only if you fancy topping up your lip colour every half an hour.
Therefore I won’t be repurchasing.
What are your thoughts on the MUA lipstick?
My first beauty haul post! I’ve been really into buying beauty products lately rather than clothes. I’ve been addicted to reading beauty blogs and there are so many products I want to try!
Here is what I got from Superdrug:
MUA Heaven & Earth palette – I have finally jumped on the MUA bandwagon! I can’t actually believe how cheap this range is. I used this palette this morning and the shadow was so pigmented! I think I have finally been converted from using Urban Decay….
MUA lipstick in shade 7 – This was £1!!! I love the colour and plan to stock up on a few different shades. I will post a review on this later in the week.
MUA cream blusher – I think this was £1.50 or something similar. Haven’t tried it yet but I love the texture.
Pond’s Cold Cream – I absolutely love the Pond’s moisturisers so decided to go for this cleanser as it was reduced to £2.99 from £4.99. I love this – I’ll post a review soon.
I really want to get my hands on the Undressed and Undress Me Too palettes by MUA but my local Superdrug didn’t have them in stock so planning a trip to another branch today!
What do you think of MUA?
OMG Fashion recently posted on their Facebook page that they were looking for bloggers to review some of their products. I jumped at the chance as I had visited the site a few times but never took the plunge and made a purchase so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try out the clothing!
I chose this cute bunny jumper as I had spied it on a few blogs and other sites and always lusted after it!
Firstly I must apologise for my makeupless face in these pics!
Just how gorgeous is this?! I am in love with it! I love the bunny and the geek glasses, and it is super soft and cosy. I am wearing a size Small which fits sizes 8-10 and can say it is true to size! I am so impressed with this and even more impressed that it is just £16! You can buy it here.
I want to show you a few more of OMG Fashion’s products incase you are not yet convinced.
Everyone is going crazy for midi dresses at the moment so here’s a couple of my favourites:
Skulls midi dress – £16
Aztec tribal midi dress – £16
I am also in love with this graphic bodycon mini dress – I’ve never seen anything like it! So unique and gorgeous:
Graphic bodycon – £24
And, of course, they sell Geek tees, which I have seen everywhere, but this one is only £8!
Geek tee – £8
Another great thing about the site is delivery is only £2.95, cheaper than Topshop, New Look, H&M etc etc…
So guys, are you inspired to buy?
A sad time has come – my Marc Jacobs Daisy purse spray has almost run out 😦 Yes, okay, I do have a 100ml bottle at home but I just love how cute and dainty this bottle is! And it can fit into bag without much fuss! Note – there is never much room in my handbag as I seem to carry everything I own with me…
Aaaanyway, I just love this scent. It’s not my all time favourite, but it is in the top five. It is light, refreshing and so distinctive, and definitely a product that has lived up to the hype.
You can buy Daisy in various sizes at Fragrance Direct
I am a huge fan of Sanctuary Spa products so my mum got me a set for Christmas and I picked up a few sets in the Boots sale.
I love the ‘classic’ Sanctuary smell – it is so distinctive and instantly recognisable!
I got this lip balm in one of the sets. I have to admit that I always forget to carry lip balm so often end up with chapped dry lips and cold sores. Not good! After my most recent dry skin outbreak I remembered I had this lip balm and have been carrying it with me since!
I love the texture of it. It’s smooth and silky and just feels like it would be great at hydrating dry lips! It has a very subtle scent and my lips tingle a little when I apply this, which I quite like.
It has definitely earned a place in my daily make up routine!
You can buy this lip balm from Sanctuary’s website. It is £4.19.
What lip balms would you recommend for sore dry lips?
I recently joined the E-tail Bloggers Network and spied a great competition to win £75 to spend at Marc B and £175 to spend at ASOS so I just have to enter! Marc B is one of my favourite accessory brands and ASOS is my go-to site for clothing & footwear purchases!
As I have mentioned before, I am off to Spain in May, to a little town called Loja near Malaga. My boyfriend’s parents live there and I can’t wait to explore! The weather there is generally very warm so I have based my outfit around this.
I am in love with this dress from the petite range at ASOS. The paisley pattern is right on trend and it looks light & floaty which is what I need! I love the petite range at ASOS, they have a bigger selection that any other store I know of! I have added the cute red waist belt to tone in with the colours of the dress and some cute sandals which would be perfect for walks around the town and trips to the beach! The spiked necklace keeps this outfit right up to date and adds a bit of ‘edge’. Makeup would be kept very light and simple so I would use this Rimmel BB cream and a touch of Korres lip butter.
I have chosen the Olive soft tan bag from Marc B. I mentioned this bag in a previous post as I think it is a very adaptable colour and style so I could wear it with any outfit! I love the size as it would be perfect for holding all my essentials including water, my camera, purse and suncream.
Take a look at Marc B’s new arrivals here and check out the competition blog post here
Thanks for reading!
I am definitely a bit late jumping on to the Soap & Glory bandwagon only now! I received my first two Soap & Glory products for Christmas from a very dear friend, one of which was Hand Food. I suffer from quite dry hands as I never wear gloves when I’m cleaning (I’m a bit OCD) and the chemicals have wreaked havoc with my skin, so I was grateful to receive this as I’ve heard amazing things about the brand in general.
First of all, I love the packaging. Bright without being tacky and definitely eye catching. I also love how the Soap & Glory folks use catchy quirky names for all of their products!
Hand Food is “non-greasy” and “hydrating” with “shea butter, macadamia oil & marshmallow.” It has a pleasant subtle scent which is great as I hate overly fragrant skin products. The texture is lovely, very light and blends easily. I type alot at work so can’t really afford to be sitting waiting for hand cream to soak in! It does feel a little greasy for a while after application which does bother me slightly, and I’m not sure it is making a great difference in softening and caring for my hands.
I like the product and overall would score it 3.5 out of 5, however I do prefer the L’Occitane hand creams and will be sticking with them in future.
This is the one I least like out of the three Soap & Glory products I now own. I’ll review the others in due course!
Have you tried this hand cream?
