MUA Haul Part I

Make Up Academy has recently hit 35,000 likes on their Facebook page. As a thank you, they offered a 35% off their entire range plus free shipping. I couldn't pass on this offer, so I bought me some beauties. Well, I made two orders... This are the products from the first order I placed. 
MUA Haul

I got three nail polishes. I hate the brush in the MUA polishes, but as I fell madly in love with their Stormy Skies nail polish, I decided to try some other shades as well. I got Frozen Yoghurt for which I though it's gonna be a periwinkle creme but as it turns out it's just lilac. Shade 23 is a great olive green creme with some silver microglitter and Leicester Square is a gunmetal grey from the Magnetic nail polish range. From the look of the swatch on their site, I thought it was gonna be blue... So be careful when buying. The swatches on MUA site aren't the best.

Another product I just had to put in my basket is this 12 eyeshadow palette in Heaven & Earth. Gorgeous natural shades for everyday look. Amazing palette for just £4.00 (before the discount!).

Just to try the MUA eyeshadows, I picked two of the shades from the Pearl Eyeshadow range. The first one is in shade 12 (again: the swatches on their site are awful!) which reminds me of the Too Faced  Label Whore shade. I'm not saying they're possible dupes, it's just the effect it gives. Brown-ish eyeshadow with a bright silvery green flash.

I thought shade 29 is gonna be a perfect greenish bronze, but it's way too light. I still see some potential in it. I will make it work. =)

Another product I wanted to try are the MUA Blushers. I got them in shade 4 (left on the photo) and shade 5 (right on the photo). I was disappointed with them, because they're both quite on the orange side. Just take a look at these two shades on the MUA site HERE. Where's the pink and dark red? I think they must be very inconsistent when it comes to color, especially after googling for the blusher shade 5 photos. Too bad.

I also got another three products I haven't mentioned above:
* Mega Volume Mascara
* Mascara in Shade 6
* Extreme Felt Eyeliner in Black

I payed ~ €16.00 for all of the products I mentioned which is a very good price, but you have to remember - you never really know what you're getting. I spend some time searching for swatches, but I still got some items I thought I didn't even order - because the colors were so off. 

What are your favorite MUA products? Is there anything else I should try? 

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  2. I love MUA pearl eyeshadows! I find that they're really pigmented and easy to blend. I also hate the nail polishes brushes, so good luck with those! When you try the eyeliner, is there any chance you could do a quick review on it? I'm curious to know about it's lasting power and opaqueness etc. Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. Paletka je čudovita. <3

    Slike obeh rdečil na njihovi strani pa so kot v posmeh. Saj niso ostali niti znotraj iste barvne družine. :O

    1. Res ne vem kaj so mislili z Blusherji. Po premišljevanju sem prišla celo do ideje, da se jim je v proizvodnji nekaj ponesrečilo, in so akcijo -35% uporabili kot stimulator za odprodajo škart robe. :D

  6. I actually like both of the blushes, although they're nothing like the picture on their web page O.o

  7. I received my order yesterday, but I'm quite satisfied with all I got :) I wish I had bought a few more of their £1 blushes (I got shade 4 as well!)because the quality is just lovely.
    I'm quite impressed with their palettes and pearl eyeshadows, the quality is amazing compared to their price! Definetly a fan of MUA :D

  8. Nimam še kaj od njih, vendar bi z veseljem imela, glede na to, da res ni drago! Sem pa zamudila tole akcijo, čakam na naslednjo :)

  10. Heh, I also bought blusher,but no 6 and it's nothing like on their web page. It's brownish/dark brick color with gold reflection. I will use it as a layering blush :)

    1. It's funny though. Even when I google their blushers, it's like I get different results - shade 4 is sometimes pink, sometimes dark and in my case orange. Weird.

  11. Super nakup, ampak odtenki blushov so pa res ČISTO drugačni kot na njihovi strani. :)

  13. Jaz nabiram za zdajšno akcijo in mislim,d a si bom vseeno privoščila dva blusherja in upala na najbolje. Sem pogledala kar nekaj swatchev. Bom jezna, če ne bo v redu. Lahko sploh take stvari reklamiraš?
