I want to introduce you all to this amazing make-up range from Superdrug, a UK store.  I am loving MUA Cosmetics!  All the products cost £1.  Yes, £1 GBP!  I stumbled upon this when my sister and I were out shopping for cosmetics and I went crazy and here is my MUA shopping haul.
MUA Cosmetics, MUA Cosmetics UK, MUA eyeshadows, MUA lipsticks, MUA nail polishes
I bought a few items from the MUA range to test it out – 5 x eyeshadows, 4 x nail polishes, 2 x lipsticks and 1 xblusher = £12 in total.

Swatches

My Opinions

  • MUA packaging is simple but not tacky
  • However, MUA product shades are not named with funky cool names but just with numbers, e.g. shade 1 – which is boring!
  • I love the colours of the MUA Eyeshadows  – very vibrant and fresh.  The colours stayed on well when used with eyeshadow primer.  (Have no idea of staying power without primer because basically, I LOVE primer!)
  • MUA Nail Polishes were a bit of a hit and miss.  One of them was runny, one of them was gloopy but I love the midnight blue shimmer one –  (I am currently wearing this shade on my toes)
  • MUA Lipsticks are surprisingly good.  I say suprisingly because I am not usually a fan of lipsticks but recently, I have been using them a lot.  (Am I ageing??)  Rather moisturising and staying power is good, but the pink one has a sickly vanilla taste.
  • The MUA Blusher is nice and pink for summer.
  • For £1, I was really impressed with the quality and quite frankly, I wish I bought more!!!  If only there was a Superdrug in Australia…

You can now buy MUA products online and they ship internationally too : http://www.muastore.co.uk
