Happy Wednesday you lovely little pumpkins.
I’m writing this on Sunday, yes I am organised and scheduled and look at me being a grown up and stuff, sat with a full face of makeup and no-where to go. I’m about to start making our Sunday dinner of dreams all dolled up. Oh, the glamorous life of a blogger!
As you may have noticed, I LOVE this time of the year. And I have found the PERFECT makeup to go with my love of all things brown, gold and shimmery. Dun Dun Durrrrrrn….
I really don’t understand why so many people spend so much money on eyeshadows. Don’t get me wrong, I love makeup as much as the next girl. But I also enjoy a good bargain (and having money for important things like wine and food) These eyeshadows are £1 each. Yes, 1 whole pound.
The pigmentation and quality of these are just unreal. I would say that they easily rival any of the more expensive eyeshadows. And at a fraction of the cost. It is seriously easy to apply, I used the makeup brushes from Primark (can you tell I love a bargain?) and they just sweep onto the eyelid with minimum effort.
I have paired it with the matte lipstick in Wild Berry. It is a lot darker than I would normally wear, but I am getting some serious autumn feels with this. I think with dark hair it is easy to go from ‘classy autumn’ to ‘gothic’ in one fail lipstick swoop, but I think this is a really nice balance.
I normally struggle with matte lipsticks, after a while they seem to go really dry and make my lips look chapped, but this matte stayed perfectly. There was no ‘over drying’, it wasn’t too wet and even better – I could kiss Andy without it coming off all over his face! (He loved my testing that out!)
I am seriously loving MUA at the moment, they are incredible value for money and the makeup is just perfection! What makeup bargains have you found recently?
