Hi everyone! I wanted to do an MUA haul, and I recently took advantage of a sale they were having. I believe it was 35% off plus free international shipping!! MUA always has great sales going on in their website so definitely check it out! Currently they are having 40% off everything plus 5 free nail quakes!! 🙂
The first thing I got that I had been eyeing forever is this Trio Baked Eyeshadow in Chocolate Box. It’s £2.50, which is about $4. The packaging is super cute and simple, and comes with three complimentary shades. The texture of these shadows are really great, super buttery and pigmented. Not patchy or glittery at all! They are very easily blendable and wear fairly long on the lids! 🙂

Next is this Going for Gold Eyeshadow Palette, they released this around the same time the London Olympics were going on, and I was immediately drawn to the gold, silver, and bronze metallic shades. It’s £4.00, around $6.50, which is a really great price for this large palette! It comes with 10 amazing shimmery metallic shades, and pretty much has every color you could hope for.
Here’s the back of the palette, it lists all the shades and the shade numbers. This palette is going to last me a long time, and I’m so happy for the value!! I wish drugstore brands in the states were just as good and better quality like the UK brands!!
Here’s the palette, all of these are quite shimmery, or have a nice sheen to them, the texture is super soft and buttery, and easily blendable. There is a little bit of fall out but nothing you can’t handle. It also comes with a dual ended applicator which is nice and is actually better quality than some I’ve seen before.

This is the Artiste Collection Multi-Use Palette, I have been eyeing this for months and this seemed like a great opportunity to get it!! It retails for £6, almost $9.60, and it so gorgeous. I absolutely love the shades in this palette, very dreamy, and light and pretty!
Here’s the back of the palette, again it lists all the shade names and what is what in the palette. It also gives you a nice quick instructional blurb on how to wear the shades!
This palette has 6 satin eyeshadow shades, 2 blushes, 1 bronzer, and 1 highlighter! I really like the eyeshadow shades, the blue and purple are the brightest shades but it makes it fun and different. They also have a speckled effect on the powder that you can blend together. The blushes are pink/peach tones, and the bronzer is a matte medium tan color. The highlighter is super pretty, I love using it on my cheek bones and under my eyes.

Lastly was this Love Hearts Lip Balm in Sweet Kiss. It’s £2, which is about $3.20. They comes in these cute little pots and are supposed to be super conditioning and sweet, and give your lips a hint of color.
Here is what it looks like, it’s a soft pretty light pink color and it smells amazing! Kind of like vanilla creme candy!! The formula is super smooth with a little slip, and it it decently pigmented! You can build up the color a bit on your lips, but for the most part looks lightly tinted. I like using this before applying lipstick, or on days where I want to look more natural. Love it!!
