|My Lil' Haul :') x|
Overall, I am so pleased with this haul. With P&P I spent around £25 so, it's so worth it. Here's my opinion on everything I bought....
Matte Perfect Primer: Is JUST LIKE BENEFIT's Porefessional! I don't think I've ever been so excited. Ok, it doesn't make pores vanish but it's a very similar formula-matte and pretty :') Will be fine on any skin tone as it blends to transparent. At just £4 though, you get 15ml (porefessional's only 22ml) meaning it's not a huge amount less but the Price difference is something a lot more noticeable! Ok, so, it maybe doesn't make makeup last as long as porefessional but my face did last at least 12hours.
Overall rating: B (a little more time saving on my foundation and it'd be an A)
The Matte Perfect Foundation: So. Fantastic. I am very impressed with this foundation (especially considering the price-£2!) It's coverage is medium-heavy on the first application! It applies smoothly and blends well, my only jibe is that it's the lightest colour available and it's too dark :/ I am not sure if this was worse by oxidising but it's such a shame as it's a lovely foundation! It looked expensive & really gorgeous! Overall: B (would've been an A if the shade had been correct)
|Just the Matte Primer & Foundation-apologies for my awful hair! :S|
Cover Concealer: £1.50. This is really lovely :') Blends really nicely, BRIGHTENS the under eye area fantastically, this may start to be my go-to under eye concealer as it doesn't crease and is easy to blend with a finger or brush (depending on my skin and my mood :P) Overall: A* -nearly my favourite product.
Pro Base Eye Primer: £2.50. This primer is a nice consistency, is coloured (very palely, but this will not affect any skin tone or shadow as it blends to see-through). The first day I used this it creased after a few hours (maybe 5) But I now think this was because I had really bad hay fever and my eyes were watering a lot, so, even my Too Faced Shadow Insurance or UD Primer Potion would've struggled through that :/ Also, today I've been wearing it since 9 this morning, it's now 3 and there's no looking like it's moving/shifting at all (this is with sleek shadows though, so, I am not sure if that'll make much of a difference). Overall: B (worth it for the money!)

|Undress Me Too Palette Swatches.|
You really cannot see the very first shadow "Naked" on my hand in my swatches and this is reflected on the eye too :( I used it to help lighten a dark crease mistake however and it worked a dream, so, maybe this is the blending companion I was looking for earlier? I do think all the other shades are to die for though and for only £4 how can you go wrong? These shades are super butterey and blendable. Well worth more than the price! (I'd compare these too Urban Decay Quality and-don't want to pay nearly £40 for the Naked Palette?? Buy MUA's Undressed Palette-EXACT DUPE. GOOGLE IT.) -if you like soft/shimmerey shades and aren't too sure on mattes go for it, it'll help you learn and build your confidence + as it's cheap you can practice over and over and not feel as though your wasting a really expensive product (like the UD Naked palettes/mac shadows). Overall rating: A (Pix Below)

Plus I found it lasted all day, I used it in my Body Image Photoshoot with Becky Hardy (which if you missed, you can catch here: http://tinyurl.com/lqkf58y ). Overall Rating: A* -My Absolute Favourite Product :')
Overall, I really like MUA as a brand you're almost guaranteed to get a good product with these. The colour payoffs are fantastic and the quality of the products is great too. I am so very impressed. Especially as I only really had nails stuff from them before (definitely recommend ANY MUA NAIL PRODUCTS!)
NOTE! I AM SO EXCITED AS MUA HAVE JUST LINKED IN WITH FASHIONISTA-ANOTHER OF MY FAVE BRANDS! (check out their site here: http://www.muastore.co.uk/)
Now: 52WODN. (as of the 5th June): Pretty Red & White Dotty :')
|My Left Hand :')|
|My Right Hand....|
I used Barry M's Gelly Shine in 9 "Pomegranate" as the base red colour and Paperchases' Nail Art Pen in White to make the dots, I then just placed them in a weird L shape on my nails :') I really liked the result-though!
Thanks so much for reading-if you got all this way! xx
