So here is a very late night impromptu post. I was ready to go off to bed and before logging out of facebook I noticed MUA promoting their fashionistA range. I tweeted my confusion because fashionistA is a brand of it's own and after a bit of
snooping research I discovered Mr MUA manufactures for other brands and fashionistA was one of them. MUA have now bought out fashionistA and given it the MUA effect, 'amazing quality for an amazing price'.
In 2011 when fashionistA originally hit superdrug, I jumped on the bandwagon and got myself a palette. In addition to sharing the recent news I thought I would share my palette with you. Apologies for the photos but it's midnight and there's not much natural light here.
You can choose between a red and black 4 pan palette. You get 4 slots to fill up, a really good sized mirror and a very sleek palette. MUA have brought down the price of the palette to £2.
I had 2 blushers and 2 eyeshadows when I first bought this palette but 2 years later I now only have the 2 shadows. Getting rid of the blushers is no reflection of the quality but at the time I very rarely used blusher.
I managed to find a photo I took of the blusher when I first bought it. I believe this was flush which was a very light pink and the other blush was in the shade brave which was a hot pink and is actually labelled as an eyeshadow on the superdrug website. Not quite sure what I was thinking when I bought that.
The shadows which I still have are in the shade Nude and Silver Lining.
The nude shade is the perfect nude for my skintone and you won't be able to see it in the swatch. It is a matte colour which I bought to sweep over the lid before applying other colours. Silver lining as you can see is a pigmented silver.
I think the packaging for this palette is perfect. You get the shadows individually like this which is perfect when you don't want to carry the whole palette and then as you can see below they easily pop out for you to pop in to the palette itself.
You can get a 4 pan palette with the products for a bargain £7 or a 6 pan palette for £10 here at the muastore or everything is half price on the superdrug website. If you would like to see swatches I came across some great ones by Helen over on Beautifully Superflous.
What do you think about this takeover?
Till next time...Toodles! :)
