Sorry I haven't posted in a while, just been insanely busy studying for my course :( today however I have been full of cold, so decided to take some time off the studying and relax for a while reading/writing blog posts.
Today I just wanted to do a review post on this little beauty from MUA...
I've been wanting to get my hands on this for a while now, but every time I look it seems to be sold out. Last week, however, I was in luck! I was so excited I just grabbed it and ran to the till, not even looking how much it was. But I'm pretty sure it was £3 which is amazing! I've been an MUA fan for a while now, and have a bit of an addiction to their lipsticks, so I couldn't wait to try this.
I wasn't disappointed. For starters can we just take a minute to appreciate how pretty it actually is. The packaging is standard MUA simplicity, however the product inside is beautiful. I've been using it every day since I bought it and the pretty pattern hasn't started to fade yet either :)
The colour is a beautiful shimmery pink, but isn't too glittery. You can apply it to the cheek bones, eyebrow bone and cupids bow for a lovely subtle lift, or even mix a bit in with a face powder for a lovely all over glow. It really is subtle which I love. But you can easily build it up with 2 or so applications.

It is amazingly easy to blend too, and doesn't smudge away your foundation when you apply it. In terms of how long it lasts, I'd say around 4 hours or so before it starts to fade, but you can still notice it after around 6 hours. That's impressive from a product that only cost £3! Also, you get a lot more of it than I thought. When looking at other bloggers pics, I thought it was a similar size to their eyeshadow pots, but its much bigger! I can see it lasting me right through spring and summer, despite it being added to the 'most used' section of my makeup collection.
I'm so happy I finally got to try this, and it was love at first brush stroke. If it's still there next time I pop in my local Superdrug I might stock up!
Have any of you tried this, and if so what did you think?
Love to you all x
