Palladio herbal concealer in yellow ($5)
This was my third time trying this concealer.
The first time I used it, I applied it under my eyes and I found it too dry and far too yellow for my liking. The second time I used it, I used it over a spot and I did like it,
the texture was dry enough to cover the concealer without need for setting and yellow enough to cover redness.
This time round, I used it underneath my eyes and it worked a bit better than the first time because I applied less product. I did find myself reaching for more concealers though, which is not a good thing as it's not time consuming and it's a waste of time imo.
LA girl HD PRO conceal in pure beige (£2.50-£4)
I have used this cocnealer multiple times and I have to say,
I truly do like it.
The texture is extremely creamy and glides ever so smoothly,
however the shade is a bit light for what I usually revert to,
but other than that it's a lovely concealer.
I actually just ordered a lighter shade.
MUA cream blush in blossom (£2)
First of all,
I have to say, I do not like cream blushes normally.
I decided to get them because when I saw the swatches I thought I could use them on my lips if they won't work as cream blushes.
I am so glad I got these though,
they're truly amazing,
I also have shade dolly and I love both of them.
They have just the right pigmentation for a blush,
and the texture blends effortlessly on my skin without need for setting.
The shade is a beautiful natural rosy pink for that natural flush.
MUA bronzed perfection (£3)
This is one seriously amazing bronzer, It has a satin, slightly shimmery texture,
and event hough I normally revert to matte blushes, this one does the trick,
It is a buildable blendable bronzer with a golden undertone and
you get a lot of product in here. LOVE IT.
MUA undressed eyeshadow palette (£4)
I got this because I read on reviews that this is a great dupe to the Naked 1 pallete
by Urban Decay.
To be honest I didn't think I was going to like it all that much because I tend to prefer matte shades
over shimmer and this one does have more shimmer than matte shades.
But in all honesty, this is actually a beautiful eyeshadow pallette and I truly do enjoy using it.
MUA intense colour eyeliner pencil in jet black (£1)
I got this because I'm always on the lookout for good eyeliners.
I do have great eyeliners, so I did have high expectations from this one.
To be honest, it didn't deliver all that much. Even though the price is ridiculously cheap,
I wouldn't use this as an eyeliner because this thing doesn't set and it would budge on the waterline.
But I will use this as a base for smokey eyes.
MUA intense lipgloss in sealed with a kiss (£2)
First of all, I have to say, I am not a lipgloss-girl.
I am a lipstick-girl at heart but I saw a swatch of this gloss and I decided to try this shade out.
And all I have to say is... this is one amazing gloss!
The texture is divinely creamy and it's amazingly pigmented for a gloss,
The shade is just a beautiful rosy nude colour
and it looks amazing for daytime.
I hope you found this post helpful,

and till the next post
Take care dolls!
