Fashionista at MUA Blush and Bronzer Review








So, the beauty world was buzzing when MUA started selling Fashionista products on their website.  They had released a range of eye shadows, blushers and bronzers along with empty palettes so you can pick and chose your own arrangement of shades.  There are 2 sized palettes; one can hold 4 products and one can hold 6 products.

There are 15 different blush shades so I decided to buy them all!  I love blushers, and at £1.65 per blush who could say no?  I bought 3 of the 6-pan palettes at £3 each.  So that gave me 18 products to pick!  Can you tell I'm obsessed with blushers yet?  But they last forever and can really change your look.....  Do you see my logic here?  One of the blush shades were sold out so in the end I went for 14 blushes and 4 light bronzers.  I'm not a bronzer girl but I had to fill the palettes!  I bought 4 light coloured bronzers in the hope they match my skin tone well.

Altogether, the 3 palettes cost £38.70.  And for 3 palettes with 18 products, I think its a total bargain.  I love palettes, so so much.  I like palettes much better than singles, I like everything being organised in the one place.  Singles are just too faffy for me.  All of my blushes are singles and I wish I could get them all into one or 2 big palettes.  

Now, lets discuss the actual products themselves!

The palettes are made of plastic and feel sturdy enough.  The 4 pan palettes come in a choice of 2 colours (black and red) and the 6 pan palettes come in white only.  The single blush/bronzers are easy to de-pot.  A hard press on the bottom of the case where the writing is (as seen above) is all it takes to pop the product out.  From here, you just click them into the palette.  It's easy enough to do and it feels like it'll stay in place, even after some blashing about!  I was worried they'd be falling about everywhere but they're actually very secure. 

The blushes and bronzers themselves are actually fantastic.  Far better than I expected!  They are so very pigmented and so pretty.  The first time I wore one I had to wipe I off and start again as I used far too much and gave myself a clown face haha!  And the thing is, I didnt even use that much!  They really are very strongly pigmented products.  They last all day and apply very easily.  I know these palettes will last me ages.  The range of shades is fantastic too, there will be something to suit everyone.  When it comes to blushes I love all shades; pinks, reds, peaches... I'm not fussy!  I wear all shades for different occasions.  For day to day I like peaches or subtle pinks but for a more dramatic looks I like reds and brighter pinks.  And these shades give me everything!  As for bronzers, I don't wear them as I'm so pale but at such a great price I thought I'd give them a try!  So if you have bronzer tips, let me hear em! 

I'm so in love with these, if you're a blush / bronzer fan then I definitely recommend giving them a go.  I think I'll fill a few palettes with eye shadows too! Eyeshadow palettes are a soft spot for me!  As I said, I like everything in the one place haha.  I'm actually thinking of making a smokey eye pallet with some blushes, it'd be great to take on holiday / nights out as it's so small but will hold the essentials.  Well, smokey eyes and blush are amongst my essentials.... Who doesn't need a smokey eye and pretty cheeks?!

Have you tried these yet?  Or is there any shades you want to try?
