Hey lovelies!
MUA is a make up brand that I just love a hell of a lot, it's cheap, it's cheerful and most importantly it's all amazing quality, which is fab I think for such affordable products! I've only ever really tried their eyeliners, single eyeshadows and their AMAZING palettes an the mosaic bronzers. So, when I popped into Superdrug recently I thought I would pick up the single blush and bronzer as I've wanted them for a while, and at only £1, it'd be a crime to not have bought them!

Both are in shade one. The blush is more a light pink, one that will definitely give you the rosy cheeks you're after. I mainly own coral and nude blushers, so this is definitely new for me. I do love the pink though. I use an angled blush brush to apply this, so you're not applying to much product on to a big brush, also excess any powder off, as you can neverbe too sure if you're applying too much. Once applied onto the face, it gives a subtle rosy pink glow to the face, which is what I was aiming for. I was expecting it to come out as bright as it is in the package, thankfully not!  Tip: Keep on blending the product in, to avoid resembling a clown. That happened to me once, wasn't a fun look AT ALL. The packaging is okay, it’s transparent which I do like, as you can see the product, and see how much you have used etc. I can’t really complain about it, as it’s cheap as chips and it does the job and fits the bill perfectly.

The bronzer, again shade one which is not my usual bronzer. The colour is a sunkissed golden shade, which is what I always go for, however, it’s a shimmer bronzer. EEEEK. Usually not my choice of finish, as I like my bronzers to be matte, and then to add shimmer with a highlighter. BUT. I’ve got to admit, that when I used this, in my everyday make up routine, I really love it. I love the finish it gives onto my face. However, perhaps because of the glittery shimmery finish and texture, I think that this is a bronzer best suited for evenings and nights out, so it isn’t ‘too much’ for daywear. But, then again, each to their own. But for me, daytime I would much prefer a matte bronzer! If you’re looking for a glam shimmery glittery bronzer and don’t want to spend a fortune, then why not try this hereNow, girlies, I am after a new matte bronzer, not too dark, not too light, just one that will give me the perfect sunkissed glow. I have been intrigued by the NARS bronzers for ages now and the CHANEL Soleil de tan. What are your favourite MATTE bronzers?

Also, have you tried this MUA SHADE 1 bronzer and blusher before? 
What are your thoughts I’d love to know!

Oh and have you seen how light my hair has gone? I've been using the Lee Stafford Lightening Spray, a post will be on that soon! My hairs a bit of a mess, natural curlyness there for you!

Much love


  1. This looks really nice! never tried MUA blusher or bronzer. But I have tried their eyeliners!

    1. sorry this my issters account didn't know she was logged in lol,but is my blog.

  2. Great posts, I must say both colours look beautiful on you! I usually go for corals too when it comes to blushes, but sometimes it's fun to mix it up and try something new! It looks beautiful on you.
    Also, I use a really lovely Matte bronzer by Bare Minerals/ Bare Escentuals. It's a really light wear bronzer, applys and you barely feel it! To me the feel of makeup is really important - I have to feel like I am not wearing any at all or else I feel uncomfortable! It blends really well too, it comes in this deep cocoa colour which is really daunting but when it's applied it goes really wonderfully on.

    Thank you so much for following my blog - I am totally following you back, I seriously LOVE your blog.
