MUA Haul with a little bit of Poundland and Primark! (Warning: photo heavy!)


When I get new products, I find it near impossible not to rip them open on the bus and swatch them there and then, but I managed to control myself with two palettes and the pressed powder here, as you can tell! All in all this came to just over £15 and I think it was all well worth the money, I'll have weeks worth of looks to make out of these.


MUA Poptastic Palette £4
I've been dying to get my hands on this because I've noticed I'm stuck in a neutral eyeshadow phase and I wanted to mix it up a bit! Plus these shades will come in extremely handy in some bright face paint looks, so Poptastic has a thumbs up from me!


MUA Dusk Til Dawn Palette £4
After seeing the MUA blog's swatches of these shades, I knew I had to get my hands on it! I'm in love with the entire bottom row, I can't wait to get stuck in!


MUA Glitter Ball Palette £4
I saw this in a post by my lovely friend Elle (I've said it before, I'll say it a million times, her blog is amazing!) and I couldn't wait to get hold of it, the colours are stunning and I've never been the greatest fan of matte shades so this will be perfect!


MUA Glitter Eyeliner in Shade 10 £1
I've seen a lot of good reviews about these and as I just mentioned, I love glitter, so I'm hoping this will come in useful in future for gigs and the suchlike. I was hoping to pick up the silver shade instead but every one on the stand had badly separated the glitter and the fluid, so fingers crossed the black won't do the same over time!


MUA Pressed Powder in shade 1 £1
I'm coming close to finishing my Collection 2000 Pressed Powder in Candlelight, so I turned to my favourite bargain brand for a new powder, and I already like how pale this is, my current one does turn me a little orange so I'm hoping this will work out well!


MUA Mosaic Blush in English Rose £2.50
I've been staring at this for months now, but I'm not really a great blush fanatic, maybe because I'm already pale enough as it is without looking embarrassed, but this shade is designed to give a nice pale glow, which I'm already loving!


Allura Double-Ended Contouring And Blending Brush £1
Poundland strikes again! This looks like it's really good quality for the price and I can never have too many blending brushes, so this looks ideal and I hope I get a lot of use out of it.



Set of 6 rings: £2




Necklace: £4


Primark 4-In-1 Facial Cleansing Wipes £1 for 2 packs
My favourite face wipes, I'll be reviewing these soon!

So that's all folks, hope you enjoyed this massively photo-heavy haul, but I want to know...

    1. Wow really?! Mine must be pretty rubbish, we only ever have crackle polishes here! :( Yeah definitely have a look at their brushes, some are visibly rough and poorly made but the blending and contouring one is just so smooth and almost professional! xxx
