So after getting and posting about the £1 MUA Blushes, I was intrigued to see what else MUA have to offer. The quality was just unbelievable so I had to try out some more of the range. I popped into Superdrug today to see what they had in. Unfortunately they were not putting up stock until tonight so I missed out on a few things I wanted to try but I ended up with these two lipsticks.
So, due to the internet and the existence of Inglot store in Stirling I am officially poor but at least my eyes will be pretty. That's me half joking, I'd happily pay twice the price for these shadows hence why I'm going to buy all 160 shadows before Inglot put the prices up! Maybe not, but I'll sure as hell try!
Basically the freedom system is a build your own palette. They have many different types of pallets from pressed powders and blusher but I will be blethering on about the eyeshadow system today. The palettes range in size from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20 and 40. I jumped in mid range and went straight for the ten palette.
I just got one palette with a selection of mattes both bright and neutral, mama loves her mattes, but plan on expanding to get two palettes and have a bright colours and neutrals. Then one day I plan on expanding once more to colour co-ordinated palettes such as all blues and all pinks/reds. I just need the funds.
So, lets talk pricing; The palette itself is £10 and for a ten pan palette, that's a blinkin' steal! The refil pans themself are £4.50 for 2.3g(matte weight) which again, a steal! Which means a full 10 pallete would cost you £55!! Like, what, how is that possible?
And considering I already favour these over my MAC shadows(1.5g) which would cost around the £170 mark, you can see why I am in love.
Here is what I have bought this past week. I will be doing an update because I have another order in the post being shipped to me right now, opps! I am restraining myself from ordering more but typing up about them is making me want more.
The packaging itself is really nice, I like the sleek minimalistic look they have going on. It's really super sturdy and a good weight. The magnets are really strong and you know your shadows and lid aren't going anywhere.
Another cool little feature is you can stack two pallets together due to the magnets which will be super handy in my make up kit.
I haven't really had time to do any swatches but I will at some point before the end of the month but the colour play off is great. Really pigmented and I can see these lasting a long time. I would recommend you try out Inglot if you are looking for some professional grade make up, I know I will be using nothing but these eyeshadows from now on.
So today, Reuben is officially two and a half years old and I don't know where the time as went. All of a sudden I have this really intelligent and independent child walking about my house. I look forward to our next six months until he is three and I can really start getting emotional about it.
How did we get from this little eleven day old...
to this two and a half year old...
in what feels like a blink of the eye?
I cherish every day with my son and know that every new day is a new chance to learn and grow but I do miss my 'tiny little sausage' I once had and got to hug for more than 0.3 of a second.
So as many of you know because I blogged about it here; Thursday 29th August was the day I decided to kick my smoking for good.
So I am not here, two weeks later, to brag about how well I personally think I've been doing.
There seems to be a content buzz of excitement about MUA products on Blogger and YouTube so I thought I'd break my MUA virginity and get myself a new blusher to try. Then because I'm a big spender, I picked up another one.
I got Candyfloss and Bubble Gum and I think I love them both equally.
There seems to be a lot of open door days this month so I've took advantage by going to a local Estate not from from where I live. I used to go walking up in the estate and the surrounding paths and woodlands and loch before I had Reuben but I haven't really been up in a while. I found out a few weeks ago that the museum was free today and they had free tours of the Walled Garden so I invited my best friend up for a free day out!
I sometimes forget there is so much about my area and kind of take it for granted. You forget the beauty that's around you, if you just venture out of the street and walk any more than five minutes!
I don't think I need to say much about Comic Con, do I? I'm assuming if you are reading this, you are my friend and are fully aware of what Comic Con is!!
It was such a good day and I'm so glad we got to take Reuben. A little bit more planning will be involved on our part for next year as we did not anticipate the amount of people that would go. With 20,000 people going, the queues at the SECC were immense. Luckily, and I mean so, so, so, so lucky, We got in without having to wait in the queue any longer than the 2 hours we were there. It started to rain very badly and security rounded up anyone with buggies and small children and get them inside really quickly while the rest of section we were in were told that they'd be there another two hours! Totally worth it though, we all loved it!!
So, without further ado, here is some pictures and a run down of the day. I do wish I had gotten more pictures than we did but next year I will have enough confidence to ask cosplayers to pose for me!!
Not really blogged this week because I've been super busy. Between college, days out, shopping, getting my first smart phone and trying to figure out how the blinkin' heck I work the damn thing and starting to watch Game of Thrones(better late than never) I haven't really had much time!
Got a jam packed weekend ahead of us, which I'm sure you'll hear about. So I am planning a boring day of finishing the housework, ordering Tesco and homework so I can try and get a stress free weekend. Good luck to me.
