MeMeMe Create The Look Smokey Eye Collection

MeMeMe Cosmetics Smokey Eyes Trio

I have quite a few MeMeMe products in my collection & have blogged about their Eye Liner, Shimmer Stack and Long Wear Lip Creams and I think their makeup is affordable and very good quality. I have been trying out their Create The Look ‘Smokey Eye Collection‘* and think it’s a great introduction to the brand and it is a great selection of products to have. I wear mascara, and eyeliner almost on a daily basis so I can never own too many of those & the ones in this kit are pretty good.

MeMeMe Smokey Eye Collection

This beautiful collection includes Smokey Eyes trio palette, Dark & Divine mascara, kohl Eye Line Pencil in Coal & Eye Sweep Precision Eye Definer. Four full sized MeMeMe products and everything you need to create that sultry smokey eye. I must admit I don’t tend to wear my eyeshadow that dark but the good things about the eyeshadow trio is you can keep it quite light & still create a Vicki (neutral shadows only) friendly smokey eye.

MeMeMe Smokey Eye Collection

The Smokey Eyes Trio 01 has 3 wearable colours that are pigmented, easy to blend and they wear a long time too. You get a light creamy white shade white is good as a base colour & to brighten the inner corner too. The blue grey shade is stunning, not my usual go to colour but it looks really pretty on the lid and not too dark. The darkest shade is a charcoal grey with a hint of dark blue & the perfect shade to give the look that smokey edge. I want to try a few more of these baked shadow trios as the quality is really good.

Eye Sweep Precision Eye Definer is the ideal felt tip liner for achieving that defined cat flick. The tip is very precise which makes applying your liner quick and easy. The formula is black and long wearing, I like to go over twice just to give it the deepest colour but this is a great everyday liner & it doesn’t transfer on to my upper lids or smudge throughout the day.

Kohl Eye Line Pencil in Coal – This is great for smoking out the eye as it is really easy to blend out & its quite soft & creamy to apply. I used to wear khol liner all the time but I tend to over look them & reach for liquid liners more often. I have been enjoying re discovering the simple khol liner & forgot how less harsh it looks & how you can transform your eye makeup by smudging it out.MeMeMe Smokey Eye Collection SwatchesMeMeMe Dark and Divine MascaraDark & Divine Mascara – I love the big chunky plastic wand, it helps coat each individual lash and separate them making your lashes look full & fluttery whilst the fibre enriched formula gives them volume and length. The formula isn’t too wet and after two coats there is no clumping or spider lashes and its easily removed with Micellar Water & a Hot Cloth Cleanse. I have been wearing this as an alternative to my beloved Roller Lash as an everyday mascara. This is the stand out product in this kit for me.

I think the Create The Look ‘Smokey Eye Collection* £17.50 – would make a lovely gift for someone that is starting their makeup collection because it comes with 4 really good useable products. Or if you like creating a smokey eye then you might want to snap this up too, its very good value for money.

Favourite MUA Products

MUA Spring Collection 2015

Favourite MUA Products

I have quite a few MUA products in my collection & I find that on a whole their products are very good value for money. They have a really good selection of makeup, brushes & eyelashes. I have rounded up my favourite products from them & thought I would share them with you. I’d love to know what products you would recommend from MUA.

Undress Me Too Palette £4

I have a few of the MUA 12 pan eyeshadow palettes but this is my most used & loved. It has 12 neutral shades in and has been compared to the Naked 2 Palette, I don’t own that palette so can’t say if it holds up as a dupe but I love this palette. The packaging might feel a little cheap and plastic but it is thin and easy to travel with.You get some good mattes and a mix of metallic finishes and shimmers. I have never used the black shade but it is SO pigmented (it scares me). Every time I use this palette I can’t believe how little it cost. For £4 everyone should own this palette.

Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder £3

This reminds me so much of the Mac In Extra Dimensions Collection. I bought this powder not expecting much and it turned out to be a really pretty light pink highlighter. A little goes a long way so don’t use too much of a heavy hand. I put a little on the tops of my cheeks. It really is very pretty and for £3 everyone should have it in their collection.

Bronze Shimmer Kisses £3

This reminds me of the Soap & Glory Solar Powder (which I LOVE). It has 4 colours to swirl your brush in for that perfect bronze glow. I have even been using the lightest colour for a brow and inner eye highlighter too & the colours also work well as eyeshadows. It is a multi-use product in my opinion. Which makes them even better value for money.

MUA Powder Blushers

There are six of these to pick from & at £1 each they’re a bargain. I have four out of the six and I use them all the time. They are all pigmented, blend-able and really good quality. The packaging of these isn’t wonderful, don’t travel with them otherwise, you will end up with more product in your makeup bag than in the pan! I have seen that MUA has released Whipped Cream Blushers & they look gorgeous too!

MUA Baked Trio Eyeshadow in Chocolate Box £2.50

These are really pretty metallic shadows that can be used wet or dry. They are pigmented and easy to blend. You get a bronze shade, purple toned taupe and a burnt orange. I like all three colours and even after having this in my collection and using it a fair amount I still haven’t made a dent in any other the shades, they’re going to last me a very long time. The packaging is a little bulky & cheap but I think they have repackaged it to be more compact.

MUA Sweet Sheen Collection

MUA Sweet Sheen Lip Balms* £2

These have been the newest addition to my MUA stash & I LOVE them. I have done a full review of them here. In a nutshell, they’re hydrating, glossy & give your lips a pretty wash of colour ideal for the warmer months. These are part of MUA’s new Spring collection.
