MUA Cosmetics Haul



A few weeks before Christmas, I made a very sneaky order from MUA Cosmetics. I received this just before Christmas, which was super lucky, but because of the busy season, I haven't had a chance to post my haul until now! This is actually a collection of two orders!  

So, want to see what I got?


Dusk til Dawn palette

I absolutely adore the colours in this palette! They are all glittery (which I love!) and perfect for a night out! 

This palette was £4.00, which is just over $6.00AU



Pretty Pastels palette

I realised I'm absolutely lacking when it comes to pastels. I either wear a lot of nudes or a lot of dark colours, and so I decided to try out the MUA pastels palette! The colours are so gorgeous and there is a great variety, so I can't wait to start wearing these!

This palette was £4.00, which is just over $6.00AU




The Artiste Collection palette

This palette was actually free, which was great for me as I've had my eye on it for a while. I love the idea of having eyeshadows, blushes and bronzers in one palette, especially for the cheap price! 

This palette was £6.00, which is just over $9.00AU




Trio Eyeshadow in Pink Sorbet

I can never go past a pink eyeshadow! I don't know what it is, but it completely draws me in! I think I can pull of pink eyeshadow well enough, as I have really pale skin and deep brown eyes, so it works! I think! 

This trio was £2.50, which is just under $4.00AU




Cream Blusher in Dolly & Bittersweet

These are my first ever cream blushers, and I'm a little bit scared and unsure of how to use them! (I'm sure Youtube will help me out though!) I adore the colours, so I just had to have them! 

These blushers were £2.00, which is just over $3.00AU




Lip Boom in OMG

I was convinced by my good friend MM (Read her blog here) that I needed to have the Lip Boom in my life. After looking at it on the MUA Cosmetics website, I decided she was right! I purchased one, and have been using it ever since I opened it! I'm in love!

This Lip Boom was £3.00, which is almost $5.00AU



Intense Colour Eyeliner in Bright Orange

I've actually been on the hunt for an orange gel liner. Seeing as though I've had no luck in this hunt, I decided on a normal eyeliner! The orange is a gorgeous shade, and I've worn this a few times!) I absolutely love the look of orange on myself (vain much!) so this was perfect for me until I can get my hands on this gel liner - if you know of any place that sells a good orange gel liner, please let me know!

This eyeliner was £1.00, which is about $1.50AU




Nail Quake Polishes in Shiver, Jailbreak & Broken Arrow

I'm not too sure what I'm going to do with the black polish, as I already have three or four black crackle polishes from other brands! This may be popped into a giveaway! The pink looks like a very cute shade, so I'm excited to try it! Purple is something I do not have, so I'm very happy to get this! I love purple!

These polishes were £2.99, which is just under $5.00AU




Nail Quake Polishes in Shattered Ice & Quiver

I'm not at all sure why they are in different bottles, but oh well. I don't need another silver one, although this looks a bit lighter than the OPI version of this, so I might give it a go. I adore the blue, and can't wait to use it!

All of these polishes were actually free with my second order! Score!

These polishes were £2.99, which is just under $5.00AU

So there you have it, probably the last haul you will see in a while as I'm on the 100 Day Spending Ban! As you can see, the prices are very good for products that are of good quality.
If you'd like me to do a review on any particular product, just let me know in the comments below and I'll be happy to do so - I'll have plenty of time to photograph and review while I'm not out shopping!

You can buy all those goodies and more at the MUA Cosmetics website, here. They are constantly having fantastic deals, and their shipping is very inexpensive! 

Let me know if you buy anything, or if you have purchased something you love from MUA Cosmetics before!

  1. Great MUA haul! I tried a cream blush once and it didn't work out for me. Completely turned me off cream blushes... BUT I learnt where I went wrong. I was trying to apply a cream blush onto off a powdered foundation, which results in an epic failure. Apparently, you're meant to apply cream blushes on top of a liquid/cream foundation.

    1. Thanks!
      Oh no, that doesn't sound good... but thank you for the tip! Knowing me I would have tried the exact same thing! Hopefully it works better on top of liquid/creams :)
      If not, I only wasted like $6 anyway :P

  5. Haha for a second I was like, Jasmine... did you break your 100 day spending ban ALREADY?!

    I love cream blushes! They look really nice. And are the shadows in the pastels palette pigmented? My problem with pale pastel colours is that they are often not that pigmented.

    Nice haul, love how affordable MUA stuff is!

    1. Hahaha Sheri, I wouldn't be surprised ;)
      No I'm doing a lot better this time, not so many shopping urges haha!
      I haven't actually tested yet, but I'll let you know as soon as I've swatched! (I didn't even think about it actually since all over MUA are pigmented.. but you're right about pastels in general!)

  13. Oh my goodness I can't get over how cheap their products are! I love cream blushes but they certainly aren't as easy to master as powder ones. I find that when I apply it it looks sooo dramatic and over the top, but that is because when I blend it into the skin it makes my cheeks go a little red. Within a few minutes the natural colour in my cheeks has gone and just the blush is left, so it looks lovely and natural. Anyway, sorry about the rambling - I think you will get on fine with cream blushes!
