MUA Nail Varnish Swatches

16 Feb

Waaaah Worst Blogger Award. I’m full of excuses lately, but the simple fact is I just can’t find time. I paint my nails at night, wake up and leave before the morning light is good enough for photos, then my nails get all mashed and chipped by the end of the work day. It’s exhausting! Soooo, Worst Blogger Award.

About 2 weeks ago (woops) I posted some teaser photos of upcoming hauls. Here’s the first! I placed a MUA order when they were having their massive sale, and yeah. Stuff arrived!

mua02I accidentally left out my Great Lips lip balm in this photo and my BB cream, but pretend you see them… Anyway, that’s a concealer, eyeliner, mascara, 2 eyeshadow palettes, 6 lipsticks, 4 polishes, and an invisible lip balm and BB cream. All for about $30 NZD. Woooo! Best sale evaaah.

While I am by absolutely no means a true beauty blogger, I thought I’d attempt some lipsticks swatches on my hand. I’m sorry XD

mua11L-R: Shade 3, Shade 5, Shade 7, Shade 14 Bare, Shade 15 Juicy, and Shade 16 Nectar

mua12L-R: Shade 3, Shade 5, Shade 7, Shade 14 Bare, Shade 15 Juicy, and Shade 16 Nectar

Anyway, enough of that terrible-ness. Onto the polish!

mua01L-R: Amaretto Crush, Shade 13, Shade 21, Stormy Skies.

I think it’s weird how some are named and some are not, but oh well. Onward!

mua03MUA Amaretto Crush, 2 coats

mua04MUA Amaretto Crush, 2 coats

mua07MUA Shade 13, 2 coats

mua08MUA Shade 13, 2 coats

mua06MUA Shade 21, 2 coats

mua05MUA Shade 21, 2 coats

mua09MUA Stormy Skies, 2 coats

mua10MUA Stormy Skies, 2 coats

Aaaand  that’s all the MUA polish I have for now. I’m waiting on another package from them that I ordered with MaSu, but it sadly hasn’t arrived yet (hmph).

Things I like:

  • Fairly well-pigmented, 2 coats is sufficient for full coverage in person.
  • Price! Only £1, which converts to about $1.80 NZD.
  • Formula was easy to work with.
  • Looooove the colours!

Things that could be worked on:

  • Tiny bottles by my standards (6.2mL).
  • Weirdly stiff brush meant I had to be careful with application – you can see where I’ve messed up.
  • Only some shades have names… This bothers me >_<

All in all I’m pretty happy with these, and I’d buy more! If you’re buying from MUA and you spot a colour you like, don’t hesitate to pick it up. You can’t really go wrong with such a great price.

If you’re curious about the rest of the stuff in the haul, feel free to ask because I probably won’t end up posting about it. I’m pretty happy with all the stuff I picked out, I chose the concealer and BB cream well and the eyeshadows are amazing. No complaints here!

I’ll be back again tomorrow with some Paris Sparkles lovin’ so see you then!

Recent Shopping Fun with Delindel

23 Apr

Ooookay yeah, I know, I’m terrible and a ridiculously lazy blogger and I don’t deserve to be here! I am aware of how pathetic and whiny it sounds since I only work part-time, but work is reallllly getting me down lately. Even though I need the money, I’m looking forward to our new assistant manager starting soonish so I won’t have to be at work as much. I think it’s kinda hitting me hard that I’m now a university graduate with a Bachelor’s degree, and I work part-time in retail. I’ve been having zero luck on the job-hunting front and it’s making me feel rather rubbish!

So, as ever, I resort to shopping to make myself feel better, particularly nail stuff. So today I’ve got a few things to show off from the past two weeks or so. Omgggg, how exciting for you! 😀

I’ll start off with my newest Mode polishes…

Maybelline Red Color Sensational Lipcolor Lipsticks – Review and Swatches

19 Apr

Good Afternoon Sweetie Darlings!

I am home still from work, better today but still feeling slightly run over. Gabby is taking me to Hunger Games (again) tomorrow night and Mama has promise to take me to Dressmart Mall tomorrow if I am better. So I have to bed better, that and being sick makes me feel sorry for myself.

ANYWAY enough moping, I promised swatches and here are some new lipstick swatches for you.

As I mentioned yesterday I brought a lot of Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor lipsticks from Postie. Instead of being the regular $26.00NZD each I got them for $10.00NZD each. Maybelline is a brand that I haven’t really tried too much, except for my Dream Lumi Concealer which is perfect. So after my success with my concealer I was interested in trying other Maybelline products, that and for such a reasonable price how could I say no?

KleanColor Lipstick in Raisin and Soft Rose

18 Mar

Hello my darlings!

How has your weekend been? Mine was full of watching Bones and generally procrastinating about getting my study done. BUT I assure you I did do it and am now ready to start my assignment. While I was procrastinating yesterday I discovered all these photos of things I have yet to post and share with you lovely readers. Some of those photos were of the KleanColor lipsticks I brought last month.

I have tried a few things from the KleanColor collection including a ton of their nail polish, eyeliners and eyeshadow. Most of their products are of good quality, inexpensive and have good staying powder, so I do not find it hard to try something new of theirs. However I was a bit meh I suppose is the word about these lipsticks. Don’t get me wrong the colours are gorgeous (as you will see soon), but the smell and the texture were what let it down. Both lipsticks have a very strong sweet smell that is a lot like cheap soap or perfume and you have to almost drag the lipstick across you lips to get it on, which means your lips feel a bit battered.

I do not think I will be buying any more of the KleanColor Lipsticks, I will try other products of theirs as there will be some more winners out there. I do however really like the colours I got so please take a look and see what you think.

Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipstick in Style Stealer

17 Mar

Sadly my last Chi Chi Lipstick Hollywood Heiress has to be returned because the base was broken and the lipstick got all mushed up 😦 I was unable to get an exact replacement but I found another colour – Styler Stealer. I am even more impressed with this colour than the last 😮 Though I will also replace Hollywood Heiress as I love the colour.

So take a look and see what you think of Style Stealer from Chi Chi.
