MUA Haul (with 25% discount)

When the Mr MUA Facebook page hit 5,000 likes a 25% discount code valid for 24 hours was released so I of course had to take advantage of that and order a couple of things I have had my eyes on.

And here's the Mr MUA Secret Promo Code Schedule - check out the MUA & Mr. MUA Facebook pages if you haven't already done so, as there is always something going on and loads of info being released!

I was very excited to open my parcel which arrived from only four days after ordering - so super fast service (at £2.95 standard UK postage). It was wrapped very well and I was really excited to open it and check everything out!

And this is what I got!

Mua Haul with a lovely 25% discount!
Just a quick overview of the products I purchased:

Top row left to right:

Mosaic Blusher English Rose (£2.50)
I have the bronzer and really love it - so I thought I give this a try as most of my blushers are peach/apricot toned. It'll also be exciting to see how it adapts to my skin tone as this is one of its features.

Undress Your Skin Illuminating Foundation in "Porcelain" (£5.00)
I have read loads of rave reviews about this product, so I'm curious to see how it works with my skin - I'm particularly please that it comes in light porcelain shade as I have always trouble finding foundation that doesn't show up as orange on my skin.

(See here for my review!)

Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit (£3.50)
This is new to the range and I simply had to try it! The kit contains three different shades of eyebrow powder (a pale milk coffee shade, a medium brown and a dark espresso shade) and a fixing wax - oh and mini tweezers! The three shades will allow me to mix up the perfect shade to touch up my eyebrows. I also think that the compact-sized mirror in the lid is a nice touch!

Middle row left to right:

Sheer Lip Gloss in "Perk Me UP" and "Happy Days" (£1 each)
As I'm a firm believer in that you can never have too many lovely, shiny lip glosses to choose from these ones were a no-brainer.  I went for "Happy Days" as I simply adore giving my lips a peachy tint and "Perk Me Up" because I thought it was about time to actually acknowledge that autumn is coming and the colour reminded me of crunchy leaves.

(See here for my first impression & swatches)

Matt Eyeshadow in Shade 17 (£1)
As I go through pale nude coloured eyeshadows at the rate of knots because these kind of colours form the basis for most of my eye looks, I thought I give this one a go seeing quite a few favourable reviews online.

Bottom row:
Colour Blast Eyeshadow Tint in "A Girl Like Me", "Bring It Back" and "Blast Stay" (£3.00 each)
I have been dying to try these as I love nude eye colours and am currently really getting into creamy textures.  These ones are a soft champagne colour, a beautiful taupe shade and a slightly darker brown shade. I have high hopes for these and if it goes well and I like the application, texture and staying power, I might even venture out of my comfort zone and experiment with the remaining three shades in the range a soft pink, a black shade and an aubergine shade.

So, overall I'm extremely pleased with my purchases and can't wait to try them out. 

I've already swatched them and I'll post "Swatches & First Impressions" as I go along!

Anyway, I've got to go now and create a look using only MUA products!
