My favourite eye looks to do is a mix of neutral and brights; you see, in my heart of hearts, I just can’t resist a green or turquoise eye, but it’s not always suitable for every day wear so…I love to mix it with neutral colours such as brown tones. So…I wasn’t on the market for another eyeshadow palette at all and then I spotted this beauty from Make Up Forever called Blue Sepia. […]
I made a few purchases from IMATS 2011 (not that many!). I picked up some bits from Make Up For Ever because there was 30% off. Totally impulsive, random hauling! I bought a Aqua Lip Pencil in Red 8c, Diamond Powder on 07 – a white with blue reflects, an Uplight in 23 and a HD Blush in 08 which I thought would be the most natural on my skin.
Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream colours come in 22 bold shades and are pigmented multi use pots of waterproofed goodness. Wow – a mouthful. The Aqua creams are £16.95 each which put me off a little at first – I though they would be more at the £12 mark but like a sucker, I decided to buy 3 to try them out. After all, these are waterproof and can be used on the eyes, […]
The final item I purchased from my Make Up For Ever haul is this Full Coverage Concealer. I chose this one because…can you guess? Its waterproof! This concealer is the real thing – it gives a waterproof, oil free, matte flawless finish. You’ve got to love a concealer that really does the job! I paid £20.50 for this (eek) and bought it in 10 Golden Beige. I was actually looking for Beige 08 but was […]
I totally get that Make Up For Ever is an amazing brand although I wouldn’t say that the range is without its disappointments – for me anyway. I purchased the Face and Body Foundation because I had this weird idea that I’d get a beach holiday this year. I can keep wishing. So I just had to have a waterproof foundation, which is what MUFE’s base is. This was the haul I made in its […]
This rather funky looking MUFE Flash Colors Palette was a Christmas present from the Mr. Its basically a plastic palette of 12 Flash Colors (MUFE’s full coverage, cream colors for face, eyes, lips and cheeks.) The best colors are all in the palette!: Contains: Gold 004 (metallic gold), Coral 002 (vibrant coral), Turquoise 000 (light turquoise), Fuchsia 005 (bright fuchsia pink), Yellow 013 (vibrant yellow), Brown 023 (dark brown), Silver 003 (metallic silver), White 010 […]
I am interested in contouring and shading – think it makes a big difference to the face if done well and subtly. Was anyone else an 80s child like me and remembers how the Hong Kong or Asian actresses in general used to contour their noses? Extreme. It was extreme. Anyway I bought this Make Up For Ever sculpting kit to have a play with. There are 4 variations so I got no. 2 which […]
I’ve tried a few of the Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes pencils before, and they weren’t ones I used much – even so I decided to purchase three more a week ago in three colours I don’t have for £11.50 each – 13L – Fuschia Pink 13L (metallic fuschia) 23L – Champagne (metallic pink champagne) 24L – Taupe (taupe brown) They say: What it is: A two-in-one eyeshadow and liner pencil. What it does: These […]
