A couple weeks ago MUA a.k.a. MakeUp Academy had a great offer, 25% discount on everything plus free shipping. I have a soft spot for free shipping offers and this had also a discount so it was the perfect chance for me to try the brand.
Below is everything I ordered with swatches. I made collage-photos so that I wouldn't post tons of individual photos. I kept the resolution high so click to see the colours and the ingredients ;)
My first MUA haul: an eyeshadow palette, 2 blushes, 2 lipsticks and a foundation. not bad, right?
MUA blushers in Shade 2 (the peachy one) and Shade 4 (the pinkish one). As you can see they are matte and pigmented so use a light hand. They are very soft and they already broke but I fixed them using rubbing alcohol and pigmentation and colours are exactly the same. Price: £1.00 each
Matte Foundation in Shade 1 Soft Sand. This is available in only 3 shades, I got the lightest one to use during winter. I haven't tried it yet because I'm a little tan so the colour doesn't fit me. Price: £2.00
Lipstick in Shade 13 (the red one) and Shade 3 (the fuchsia one). They are super pigmented and creamy. I like the colour on the bottom, you can easily know which is which. Weird thing though, the two shades have a different smell. Shade 13 has a soft pleasant scent but Shade 3 has this plastic-cheap-lipstick scent. At first I thought it has expired or something but after reading reviews in blogs I saw it's a general thing about MUA lipsticks. Shade 13 is a newer shade so I suppose they are trying to fix the ugly smell problem. Price: £1.00
Undressed palette This is supposed to be a Naked dupe. I already have Naked and I can tell you that the colours look identical. But if I have a twin palette then why did I order this one too? To give it to you of course! I want to do a giveaway soon and this will be the first gift. The palette is sealed and I didn't want to open it to make comparison swatches so I found the following ones online. Price: £4.00
