Review & Swatch : MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Reckless

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Reckless

After giving a not-that-fantastic review on the MUA Ever After Matte Palette, I wanted to quickly follow up with a better review on another MUA product I bought this year.  It’s from their MUA Luxe range – Reckless, a Velvet Lip Lacquer.  You know I love my lip products and this one is on point and I wish I bought more colours.

{ Side note : If you didn’t know already, I’ve resurrected my Lip Stalker channel here or go straight to my new YSL 52 lipstick swatch video here.  I’ve just reached over 29K subscribers & nearly 10 MILLION video views!  Just WOW!  Thanks for the support! }

MUA Ever After Matte Palette

For today’s blog post…oh wait…let’s all do the…

*Friday happy dance*

…for 5 minutes first!

And then, let’s continue with today’s post…

Remember I picked up the MUA Ever After Matte Palette on my travels back home to UK this year?  I finally cracked it open a couple of weeks ago.  It was cheap as chips at only £4 so should you buy a ticket to UK to buy this baby?  Read on…

Colour Blocking Make-Up Look

the best beauty blog, FOTD, make-up

Following on from the Cute Colour Block nails from Monday, today I give you colour blocking make-up which is a recent trend and I love it!  Loud, bold colours are right up my street.  And the best thing is that I can just slap on the one colour on the lid and another on the lower lash line.  No need for blending with base shades, accent colours and whatnot.

MUA Make Up Academy Nail Polish Shade 13

I am addicted to green tea.  I drink it every day.  It’s so good for you.  Unlike coffee.  It makes my pee smell.  Anyway, swiftly moving on…  Check out my nails today – they’re a lovely shade of emerald green from MUA nail polish range shade 13.  Only £1 from Superdrug!  Pity they don’t have Superdrug over here in Australia.

P.S. – Please make sure you visit The Best Beauty Blog for the next few days as there will be a giveaway for Aussie readers (2 x $100 vouchers) and an international giveaway (lipglosses galore).  YAY!  I love giveaways!

FOTD Challenge : Cleopatra

The lovely Sara-May has been doing a FOTD Challenge on her beauty blog and all of the looks she has created has been amazing.  A number of other beauty bloggers have participated in this too.  Today’s FOTD Challenge is Cleopatra – it was my suggestion so it is only right that I participate, although I did struggle with it.  I kept jabbing my eye!!!  I’ll never be a make-up artist but it’s still fun to play with make-up!

Here’s my take on Cleopatra :-

When I think of Cleopatra, I think of strong brows, bold eyes with thick black eyeliner, sculpted cheeks and red lips.

.

The eyelashes are from KKCenterHK – EYE’S CHIC 816 Bird Of Paradise Fake Eyelashes*^.  The inner half is criss-cross and the outer half is outrageously long.  They are pretty cool but not suitable for everyday use.
