Undress Your Skin by MUA

All your answers to achieve a flawlessly radiant complexion!

The beautz from MUA have released a great new range of super affordable products to help you achieve a flawless looking make up look.

The range includes three base products and also an amazing neutral eyeshadow twelve pan palette. I popped along to Superdrug a while back when the products were fresh on the shelves to give this range a go. I have previous experience with MUA products and always find them a delight- the heaven and earth eyeshadow is one of my faves.

Primer: Just one pump smoothed over your skin creates a smooth base ready for the application of your foundation. The silicone based gel fills in pores and fine lines to prep your skin to perfection. I like this product, but I don't LOVE it. My favorite primer of all time however is the very pricey, high end Hourglass Mineral Veil primer (thank you Wendy Schwartz!!!). I agree that it smoothes the skin, but the aid of foundation staying power is questionable. Can I really complain when its priced at £5.00?? No.

Highlighting Powder: This lightweight baked powder glides over skin when applied with a light hand equipped with a stippling brush. I choose to apply with my MAC 187 and dust over the high points of my face- cheek, brow bone, bridge of my nose and cupids bow. This product could rival the famous MAC mineralized skin finishes for a smidgen of the price. It creates a beautiful opulent luminescence for just £3.00!!!

Undress Me Too Palette: This palette is a great addition to my ever growing collection of nude shadows. I am a neutrals girl at heart with a strong affection for shimmering inner corner highlights a soft golden/ bronzey tones on my lid. I may even push the boat out and go for a smokey gunmetal of an evening! Eccentric I know! Great smooth shadows with amazing pigment pay off for a drugstore brand. My faves are Shy, Wink and Obsessed- some bloggers are even rivaling this palette to the famous Urban Decay Naked palettes! You can't twist to arm to make that bold of a statement, BUT I do love it and for £4.00 you can't go wrong.

Have you tried this new range from MUA? Are you a neutral eyeshadow lover like me?


All items can be purchased from MUA website. 3 for 2 on all new face products.

Spring Fever GlossyBox

This month GlossyBox* have teamed up with the beautz fashionista Pearl Lowe! The box design is inspired by her love of all things vintage.

This box will force you into spring with Beauty Hero brands such as Essie, Nip + Fab and MODELCO!

My fave product this month is Essie's nail varnish in 'Nice is Nice'. I am a big fan of Essie polishes and this one does not disappoint! This beautiful, creamy lilac has just a tint of grey- which makes it very London- spring appropriate! Us LDN folk know how fickle British weather can be right?

Check out my snaps below of this months Spring fever GlossyBox*! Don't forget to tweet your thoughts to them @GlossyBoxUK using the trend #myglossybox

Dry Skin Body Butter in Pastachio- GORGEOUS! I want Mango or Coconut Latte next!

SunSense Daily Face SPF- would use to prime and nothing else. 

Cheek and Lip tint in Rosy Red. I'm not really a tint fan- but a touch on your apples if heading to the beach would be cute :)

So Elixir Purple Yves Rocher EDP- Tuberose, Vetiver and Patchouli. NIicccccceeee 

Essie's Nail Lacquer in Nice is Nice. It is just that. 
On the talons- apologies for bad iPhone pic :)
