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!

Catching Up With MaSucree

6 Jul

Good evening my lovelies!

How have you all been?

Life has been getting in the way of blogging again. Since we last spoke I have been sick again, battled an assignment, defeated some work stress, did heaps of shopping and hid from the winter’s cold in bed. I also dyed my hair a brightish red and cut a whole lot of it off 😮

So that we get back onto even footing I thought I would write a post about all the things I have been doing and all the shopping I have done.

I have seen the Avengers (twice), Brave and Snow White and the Hunstman. I love the Avengers Loki and Thor are my favourite (all you have to do is visit my Tumblr to see that). Brave was amazing and made me laugh so much :3 Snow White and the Huntsman was just a disappointment :S

Before I started taking photos of all the things I had brought since last I posted I thought that I hadn’t done all the much shopping. HA! What a silly though that was.

So since my last post I have:

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?

MaSucree’s Week of Excess

18 Apr

Hello Lovelies,

How has your week been? I hope it has been better than mine, I went home early from work and have had a couple of days off sick. Delindel took me shopping so I would stop feeling sorry for myself, which worked.

So on to the shopping. When I say I did large amounts of shopping I mean it!  Since it was such a redonk amount of shopping I thought I would share with you what I got. Enjoy :3

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.

The Quest for the Perfect Red Lipstick

10 Mar

Red lipstick when done properly can lift an outfit, amp up the sexy and add a wiggle to your step. When done badly it can make you look as though your little sister did you make up or even just plain trampy. It is one of those lipstick colours I have just avoided, I have rather plump lips so if I get colours wrong it really in your face XD

I love vintage and pin up so I have been on a quest for the perfect red lipstick for me. I have looked at other brands but they were a bit too expensive for me to splash on a red lipstick that might not be right. So off I rocked to the closest Jordana stand. They had quite a few different shades but it was Radiant Red that really caught my eye, for $3.00 NZD it wasn’t something to sweat about if it was wrong.

For my first attempt at buying a red lipstick and a $3.00 NZD one at that I am thoroughly pleased. Take a look at my swatches.

Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipstick in Hollywood Heiress

5 Mar

Hello darlinks!

I hope the start of you week has been kind to you. Before I get into swatching and reviewing some of my recent purchases, I thought I would show you a new lipstick of mine that I got only yesterday. I know I only just discovered Lipstick Queen Lipsticks, but now I discovered Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipsticks -_- *sigh* I think my extreme obsession has switched to lipsticks for a while.

I have used Chi Chi cosmetics before, I have one of their Quad eye shadow palette that Del got me for Christmas 🙂  Sadly Chi Chi does not seem to have a website that is up and working, but hopefully soon it’ll be working.
