Budget Beauty

I have a beauty bargain for you today, MUA Blusher in Shade 2 (although looking on the website now it appears they’ve now given all their shades names, which is far better than numbers in my opinion)

mua blusher

I picked this up on a whim from Superdrug for the stonkingly good price of £1!!

You do need a light hand with this as it’s highly pigmented but I consider that a good thing. Nothing worse than layering and layering and nothing happening!

It’s soft with a nice gentle sheen to it and no shimmer.

For the price it’s definitely worth trying them out!


L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara

The new L’Oreal mascara review.
We’re being treated with all these new products on the shelves!
I picked this up in my local Superdrug for the introductory offer of £5.99. Bargain! You can get it here it also comes in Pop Turquoise and Tropical Violet.
L’Oreal say.
Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara creates mega volume on top and bottom so eyes look more open.
Our exclusive formula, made up of enlarging collagen spheres works perfectly in conjunction with the 360° flexible cone shaped brush to amplify upper lashes and reveal lower lashes.
The exclusive formula also contains a trilogy of polymers for absolute hold and staying power.
I say.
I really like this mascara! I do have to say though that when I opened the tube (which took forever, I had two layers of that horrible plastic stuff to get through!) the brush didn’t look great and the first strokes just looked like a clumpy mess.
I persevered though and I ended up with lots of length, volume and a definite ‘wide eyed’ look!
One problem I seem to get with a lot of mascaras is that when I get good volume it weighs down my lashes and I often end up having to sacrifice length for volume. I didn’t get that with Miss Manga, after the initial mess with more strokes it spread out and I had fairly defined long thick lashes, every girls dream 🙂
The wand is one of those fandangaled bendy ones like the Mega Plush from Maybelline, so if you didn’t like that wand, chances are you won’t like this one.
After 8 hours wear I still had curled long lashes with no smudges. I do recommend this and this will be a daily use. Will it take over my Benefit Bad Gal? I don’t think so, there’s a special place in my heart for that one! But I can see myself picking this one up a lot!
Thanks for reading, have you brought this mascara? What did you think?
