MUA Makeup [Haul & Swatches]

While over in London recently I found myself in a superdrug, at the MUA counter so obviously I had to pick up a few bits! Starting at £1 how could I not?! To make it even more tempting they were 3for2! 

After reading great reviews about such a cheap brand I was very excited to finally come across a counter, however it was quite bare when I got there :( 

That being said, I got 3 lovely bits! 

Single Eyeshadow in Pearl:
The pictures really don't do this shadow justice! It's a gorgeous burgandy brown satiny shimmer shadow that is super pigmented and smooth! All that for £1! It's a perfect shade for A/W, just pop a warm matte brown in the socket and this all over you lid and you have an effortlessly beautiful makeup look, add a thick gel liner for more drama ;) 

Nail Polish in Mud Pie:

I'm definitely more of a muted girl when it comes to my polish! I'm always drawn to shades of brown beige and anything neutral! Shown here is only one layer of this £1 polish! Full coverage and it lasted around as long as most of my other nail polishes (2ish days), so definitely another winner for me! 

Eyeshadow Palette in Poptastic:
Now there are definitely not what I would usually pick up eyeshadow wise, but as I said the stand was pretty bare and there was either this or a neutrals palette, which honestly I have too many of, so for £5ish I thought  it would be worth expanding my horizons a bit! Yet again this MUA offering was smooth, pigmented and swatched true to expectations! 

I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for more MUA products in Dublin and stocking up a bit more! I'm kicking myself for not buying one of everything! 

Do you have any MUA products?
