MUA Matte Perfect Loose Powder Review

I was recommend this powder by my sister. She loved to use my MAC loose powder and wanted to find a good high street alternative for herself and came across this. I got the powder in the shade ‘Translucent’ as I use powder to hold my make-up in place rather than for a colour effect on my skin. MUA Powder Like any product you buy the first thing you notice is the packaging. The packaging is okay, it’s pretty simple with a clear bottom and a white lid on top with pink writing. The packaging definitely doesn’t excite me like some but it definitely doesn’t stop me from buying the powder either. The powder itself it held underneath a plastic lid with holes in to let some powder come through gradually. You still manage to get a fair bit of product out of this without it over flowing unlike some (I find normally it’s really hard to get the powder out or it pours out.) MUA loose powder The powder itself goes on to the skin very nicely and I love the effect it leaves. This does not guarantee how long the powder will stay on your skin for but I find it has a good staying effect and holds my make-up in place for the majority of the day, as well as controlling any shiny patches.

The packaging the powder is kept in does seem very small and only holds 15g of powder which I assumed meant the powder wouldn’t last very long at all. But how wrong I was! I find the powder lasts me a very long time I have been using this one for roughly a month now and it doesn’t really seem as though i have made a dent in it. 

Costing an amazing price of £2.30 I would highly recommend this powder – it is a must have in my make-up bag now.  

Have you tried any products from MUA, if so what would you recommend me trying?

Primark Haul August 2014

I had to go up to Lakeside at the beginning of August  to take my phone to the Apple shop. Whilst I was up there though I thought I better make the most of my journey and pop into Primark.

This is actually one of my favourite Primark stores.

Denim Midi Dress

Primark Denim Midid Dress

I actually saw this dress on the Look website months ago but never came across it in a store.
I was very happy when I found it in the sale for £5 when it was originally £12. I have worn this to a family BBQ already.

Denim Jumpsuit

Primark Denim Jumpsuit

My sister bought this and once I saw it on her I needed one myself. I know this will get a lot of wear out of it from me. £17

Limited Edition Bag

CIMG8082Primark Limited Edirion Bag

If you have seen previous Primark hauls of mine you will know my love for Primark Limited Edition pieces.
They had a great selection of limited edition bags in store but I don’t own one like this and I can’t wait to wear it out.
The limited edition pieces are slightly more expensive but still a good price at £14

Mint Shoes

Mint shoes

I saw these and fell in love with the colour. I’m not entirely sure how I will wear these yet maybe with jeans?
If you have any ideas what to style these with let me know. £10

Orange Purse

orange purse

I have been using the same purse since December and I love the bright orange of this one. £5

Blue Shoes

primark shoes

I don’t have many flat shoes so was in need of some new ones.
I like the gold detail on the front of these. £10

New York PJ Top

New York Top

New York is one of my favourite cites and I mainly sleep in big baggy tops so I treated myself to this one for £5

Baby Blue Coat

Primark Baby Blue Coat

This is my favourite item I bought this trip.
So I know its not coat weather but I couldn’t let this slip through my hands.
This remind me very much of the pink coat Primark sold last year that was in every magazine and paper but barely anyone managed to get.

It was a bargain price of £23 and I can’t wait to wear this come Autumn time.

What have you picked up in Primark lately?

The Body Shop – Special Edition Blueberry Collection Review

When shopping with my mum the other day we saw there was a sale on in the Body Shop. So we popped in so she could buy a couple of the body butters.

Body Shop Blueberry

While browsing I noticed they had a special edition scent ‘blueberry’ in the sale.

I had never smelt this before and it such an amazing scent. It has a very fruity, sweet smell which is right up my street. However if your not a fan of very sweet scents this is probably not going to be for you.

The scent of these products definitely last for hours once applied.

I managed to actually pick up all 3 of these in the sale for a total of £13, a great bargain as the body butters are normally £13 on their own.

Body Butter – £5

Body Scrub – £5

Shower Gel – £3

body shop products

The worst thing about this is that it is only a special edition, meaning it is not in stores all year long. Which I can’t believe!

I definitely hope the Body Shop decide to add this to their collection all year round.

I highly recommend going into stores and stocking up before they sell out. This this is my favourite scent from them at the moment.

What are your favourite Body Shop Scents?

I saw this tag on @hellojanuaryUK blog which is all about reviews of books, if you love to read her blog is definitely worth a follow.
I love to read myself so thought I would share my answers with you all.

I mainly read at home either in bed or in the garden.

2. Bookmarks or random bits of paper?
I normally use random bits of paper or I fold the page I am on.

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or a certain number of pages?
I will normally stop after a chapter unless I’m super tired and I will just stop at the end of a paragraph.

Never.

Primark Accessories Haul June 2014

You all know by now I love Primark, and at the moment their accessories are amazing.

I’m a big fan of a statement necklace and this Limited Edition piece is gorgeous – priced at £8.

statement necklace

My sister introudced me to these shoes when she picked them up in black. When I saw them in vibrant pink I had to add them to my collection. £14

Pink Shoes

I’ll admit it, I have a handbag obsession! When I saw this one I loved the cute flower 3D print. £6

black clutch bag

This last item is without doubt my favourite (but I do love all the other bits!) But as I said, I love handbags! When I saw this I instantly knew it would be coming home with me. I love an oversized handbag so this clutch is just right for me. It’s super cute and girly with the 3D flowery print detailing. This is from the Primark Limited Edition range and is a complete bargain for £12.
This will be in my collection until it falls apart! (But I hope it never does!)
