Off We go :D

Hey guys,

As you know this week I will be in London, and I wanted to show you the Make-up I will be taking with me. I am super excited to go to London as I have been dreaming to go for a long time. Being that it’s a holiday I won’t be taking a lot of Make-up with me, all I care is for mostly to have fun and visit this beautiful city. For a holiday, I believe in taking one product for each use, also try to avoid taking expensive make-up with you because it might break with travelling and you don’t want that. So this is my list:

1

Primer- MUA undress your skin primer – this is not my favorite primer but it is a good primer and it comes in a small packing and pump which is the best for travelling.

Foundation – Vicky Dermablend in no 35 – I love this foundation too much, little goes a long way and it gives a lovely finish.

ConcealerMake up store cover all concealer – Even-though I really don’t need it because the foundation is so good I thought of still getting this great concealer with me as it also stay on for a long time.

Eye-shadowThe MUA undressed palette and the white matte colour by Make-up store. The undressed palette is a small compact palette with all the colours you can possibly need to wear for day time or even a night out. I am also taking a large matte white eye-shadow because I used all of the ones in the Palette and you always need a white colour.

Eyeliner- NYX curve liner. I haven’t reviewed this liner yet but I will let you on a little secret, I love it and it is jsut perfect for travelling.

Contouring BronzerThe elf contouring bronzer. It is quite pigmented bronzer so I don’t need to use a lot of product and little goes a long way.

Blusher Mac breezy sheertone blusher. I love this blusher and it’s perfect for this season , it pigmented and buildable.

HighlighterMUA undress your skin highliter. I have to be honest I don’t need a highlighter but I just love this highlighter, it gives such a natural glow to the cheeks.

Mascara- Revlon Grow luscious lashes. I haven’t reviewed this mascara yet but it is surprising very good and have been loving it so far.

Lipstick- I am taking the

That is pretty much it when it comes to make-up products now with regards to application, I couldn’t go without taking my beloved brushes.I have a mixture of foundation and concealer brushes, to apply the eye-shadow and also for contouring and to apply the blusher.  There are also a pair o scissors and tweezers for my brows.

Well that is all guys I do hope you have a great week, I will see you again next Sunday, in the mean time you can keep posted though Instagram and Twitter. 😀

MUA Haul – Undress Your Skin Primer

Hey guys,

So I thought I should finally start reviewing the products I got from MUA Academy. This was the first time I ever bought anything from them and I am quite pleased overall with the products. Being that MUA academy and E.l.f have a very similar price range I was comparing the make up and the service with each other. I find that the shipping and delivery is not as professional as the E.L.F company. I ordered product from E.L.F a MUA on the same day but the Mua arrived about a week later than the Elf products. Also I wasn’t impressed how they packaged the products. The E.L.F have a nicer and safer packaging in a box with paper for protection and padding while the MUA were send into a thick paper bag. Some of the Mua Products were protected with cellophane which is good but most of the other products weren’t.

Well enough about the packaging let’s talk about the products. I bought the undress your skin range  for a very cheap price which include a primer, foundation, under-eye concealer and a highlighter. Being that the primer is what we usually apply first of all, will start by talking about the primer in this post.

The primer comes in a cute packaging with a nice white pump which it very easy to use an works well, unlike the e.l.f primer. Once you apply it on, you can feel the silicone texture which does wonders to the application of your foundation.  The feeling is very similar to the  mousse L’Oreal studio line primer. However the downfall is that it does nothing to make my makeup last longer.

So will I buy this primer again? Not sure, probably not because It didn’t make my make-up last longer but it does give a nice layer to protect the skin and make application easier. I hope you enjoyed this review and thank you for following
