While happily whittling away the hours in the makeup aisles of Superdrug earlier in the week I came across some lovely new products from MUA. They seem to have launched a new range called MUA Luxe which includes a whole host of products perfect for achieving the most envious of beats.
I am total highlight and contour addict so I obviously went for straight for the products that would help me achieve those sculpted cheekbones and that highlight that you can see from space. I picked up 3 items and tried them all out today and here are my first thoughts on each:
Bronze & Sculpt Contour Kit in Medium/Dark
This duo compact includes a matte dark contour colour as well as a shimmery bronzer shade. To create my contour today I firstly used the new Bronzer Shimmer Stick (which I will tell you about next) and then I used this powder compact to add more colour and lock it in place. Firstly I used the darker matte shade on my cheekbones, around my forehead, down my nose and under my chin and blended it all in. I then took the top bronze shade and dusted it on my cheekbones for a little shimmer. I picked up the Medium/Dark in this kit which is probably a little too dark for me but I have just been using it very sparingly and blending it really well. For only £5 I am really impressed with this product, the packaging looks much more expensive and the product is really nice, also another bonus the mirror in this compact is fantastic.
MUA Undress Your Skin Illuminating Liquid Glow in Oyster
This is the product that initally piqued my interest as when I swatched it on my hand my eyes lit up, it is the most gorgeous pearlescent colour designed to make your skin glow. It is a fantastic product and for only £4 I can’t believe how good it really is. This beautiful liquid highlight is really highly pigmented and just makes the skin look so gorgeous and ever so luminous. I tried this out today and I am absolutely loving it, I mixed a little of it in with my foundation and applied all over my face and to finish I then also applied some to my cheekbones, nose and underneath my brows and blended with my beauty blender. I believe this comes in two other colours which now I am obviously going to have to try, all in the name of research.
Bronzed Shimmer Stick
This bronzer shimmer stick is the most beautiful colour and leaves the cheeks with a beautiful glow. It is not as impactful as I thought it would be, it is defintely more for bronzing up the face a little rather than using as a contour. It will be great for summer though when you just want to add a little shimmer and bronze to your face. It was also £4 which is another great bargain.
Here are the swatches of each product:
And this is how my makeup turned out using these products today:
This is my first time trying anything from the MUA Luxe range and I must say I am very impressed as for the price point the quality of the products are brilliant.
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have a lovely weekend.
