Some of you might know that my favourite make up brand is MUA (Make Up Academy) which is exclusive to Superdrug. I thought I would show you some of my favourite products from them. Why are they my favourite brand? Well, the quality of them is amazing. The price is even better. One of the cheapest brands I’ve ever seen, you can do your whole face for £10.
The first is their foundation Matte Perfection with Shine Control. A foundation for £5 you don’t think it isn’t going to be much good, but honestly it’s really amazing. With medium coverage and shine control it stops oily skin from being noticed. The pump packaging lets it down a little as I sometimes have trouble getting it out but a few pumps later and its fine. Mine is in the colour Natural Beige.
Their Mattify Fixing Mist is literally life. I go so spray happy with this using way more than I need too. It also smells great, some I have used that smell like you are just spraying chemicals on your face. And more importantly it works. My make up doesn’t run and it stays matte all day, no shine.
Their highlighter is one of the best I’ve ever used. I have got so many compliments from it, for £3 it is an absolute steal. Before I apply it I spray my brush with the fixing spray to ensure it stays. There are three different colours but I use it in Pink Shimmer. Iv tried other high end highlighters but they don't give nearly enough shine as this does.
Matte Perfect Loose Powder with Shine Control is perfect for baking your face with. I spray my blending sponge with my fixing spray and then put it on the desired areas. I also use it to cover any oily spots that have come through in the day.I really love how this leaves your face afterwards.
Before putting my make up on I use their moisturising primer. It goes onto the skin so much better than previous primers I have used and it also makes my skin as soft as anything. There is tea tree oil in the formula which is so good for skin. I also use it after washing my face at night, and i wake up with soft skin. I think I need to find a good night cream, until then I shall keep using this.
The Pro Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit in fair to mid is one of the best things I have ever used for my brows. The colour of the shadow is perfect for me, I’ve used a lot of different brow products to find the right shade and this is it! As well as the eyebrow shade it comes with brow gel to set your brows in place all day, I havent used this, instead I just use Natural Collection clear mascara as a brow gel. The is also a highlight for under the brow bone. I use this and some highlighter also to really make my brows pop. Excuse the state of the packaging.
So there you have it, my MUA haul and favourite products. If you have any questions about any of the products which I listed then get in contact with me. Ill be putting more make up hauls up over the next few days so keep any eye out for those. Are you following my Instagram? Make sure you do at @alexandralperry!!
After hardly ever wearing lipsticks I am now fully converted. One of my favourite brands Sleek has Matte Lip Creams that have the most amazing formula and range of colours. I have four of them. The other colours are more red tones which I’m not a fan of. They wash me out and just don’t suit me at all. I love how creamy they are when you first put them on, insuring that you have perfect coverage before letting it dry and become matte. They all aren’t sticky as other matte lipsticks are and you don’t need to keep reapplying either.
The first colour is Petal, a light pink shade which is perfect for spring and summer. The lightest shade of their collection. I always use the applicator to dab the product onto my lip and then use either my finger or a lip brush to blend the product into the lip.
Birthday Suit is the next, its the most nude of the collection. I really like this one as it goes with my complexion the most.
Bittersweet has to be my favourite colour of them all. The darkest pink that they do in the collection, its just so an amazing colour.
Velvet Slipper is the darkest shade that I have. I’m not one for a dark lip, I like to keep it nude or pink but this dries much lighter than it first appears.
So there we have it! All of my Sleek Matte Me Collection reviewed for you, if you have any questions then don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. Make sure you add me on Snapchat and Instagram to see my selfies of the products.
