FOTD With Superdrug MUA Makeup
Today I have done a purple look using the new MUA makeup range from Superdrug. This is available at larger branches of Superdrug and also at http://www.superdrug.com/ Each item costs just £1 so it's easy to try out lots of items from this range.
Here is what I'm wearing:
Nars Sheer Glow
MUA Bronzer Shade 1
MUA Blusher Shade 1
Nars Sheer Glow as base
MUA Eyeshadow Shade 4 pearl on outer half of lid
MUA Eyeshadow Shade 16 Matte on inner half of lid
MUA Eyeshdadow Shade 2 Pearl as a highlight
MUA Mascara in Shade 5
MUA Lipstick in Shade 9
My initial thoughts on this range are that it is good for the price. The eyeshadows and blusher are slightly powdery and can give you a lot of fallout. The pigmentation of the shadows I tried wasn't brilliant. Certainly not on a par with other cheap shadows like the 88 palette, but they do make for an easy to create, everyday wearable makeup. If you are looking for more pigmentation then these are not for you.
ITEMS NOT TO BE MISSED
from this range are the nail polishes and some of the lipsticks. The nail polishes have great pigmentation and apply really easily and smoothly. I have a YT video on these which will be posted over the next few days. The lipstick I am wearing in this look is awesome. Great colour payoff and very moisturising.
would be to try this range in the shop before you buy. If you're like me and don't have a larger branch of Superdrug close by then check out other peoples blog reviews and YT videos before purchasing. Although at a £1 a pop it won't really matter if they aren't that great. At the end of the day we can't really expect miracles for £1
Have you tried anything from this range? What are your faves?
