MUA Haul

MUA F1 Foundation Brush - £3
MUA F4 Powder Brush - £3.75
MUA Matte Perfect Translucent Loose Powder - £2.30
MUA Hide & Conceal - £1
Firstly let me start by saying I've heard alot of bad things about the MUA online services and delivery , so was sceptical about making an order - But was then more than satisfied and got speedy delivery and good service! Ive been using a Lancome brush for my foundation now for the last 5ish years and its still going strong, I just thought I'd try a new one and for £3 I cannot complain one bit! This is a great quality brush and applies foundation just as well as my Lancome brush.
  I'm used to using Primark powder brushes which are about £1.50 and they're honestly great for me, but this powder brush considering its still only £3 is brilliant! So soft and so far I'm very impressed, Ive been using it along with the Matte Perfect Loose Powder - which to be honest was just a bit of a whim, but I love it! I sometimes get a really shiny t-zone so this works a treat! You do have to be careful when you apply it especially if you have darker skin like me, it is translucent but its very fair in colour before you apply it evenly. For £2.30 again I think this is brilliant, I have only been using it for a couple of days but its made such a difference!
 Hide and Conceal I got because for £1 I thought it was definitely worth a go, as I've sort of decided I'm not going to buy YSL Touche Eclat anymore as its pretty expensive - so I'm on the hunt for a cheaper alternative! Ive tried Lo'real Lumi Magique higlighter and Ive been using MUA Concealer brush pens, which are good and only cost £2 , but basically contain no product at all..So yes they re cheap but they last like 2 weeks or less, which is silly and probably works out more expensive in the end! I'm hoping Hide and Conceal might last a little longer, plus its in stick form so the product is much more concentrated! Its good so far and it says its good for under eye, which yes it is! I got it in 'Fair' as I like to just apply a little and blend thoroughly! Have you tried any of the MUA brushes and do you have any suggestions for other Touche Eclat type Dupes??

  6. Great post. When I did my MUA haul I had also hoped to pick up some brushes from Superdrug but couldn't see any. Do they only do the brushes online?

  9. I've always been quite skeptical about MUA face products, i've thought their eye shadows were good but I wasnt sure if their foundations and concealer would live up to it.

  37. love how cheap the MUA stuff is. I first used Touch Eclait a few years ago and although it's expensive it really is worth it. I asked my friend who was going on holiday to buy it in duty free so it worked out a little cheaper :)
