For the past few months I’ve been testing and loving some new products from MUD (Make-Up Designory); which were sent to me for review purposes.
I am already familiar with the brand and have posted about them here: Cover Me in MUD.
I have been spoilt in using an eye shadow compact in Tinsel which is part of the recently launched Muse Collection launched by MUD AND A crème Lip and Cheek Colour. Here is a look I created using the two stunning MUD products + some BB cream, powder, gel liner, mascara and some brow gel.
Let’s talk about: Tinsel, Eye Shadow Compact (R199) from the Muse Collection (if bought together: R1,075).
As previously posted by myself, there really is not much can rival the intensity of colour of a MUD eye shadow, they blend perfectly and you can easily “build” them for a more intense colour which is one of the many reasons why they are so fantastic. By using just one shade you can easily build the colour to be darker in the outer corner of the eye and a light colour to be on the inner eye as pictured above. This is an easy, achievable take on a smoky eye in a few minutes using only one shade of eye shadow and one brush.
Let’s talk about: Crème Cheek Colour – R220
I have NEVER used a cream based blusher before, I have always been a lover of using powder based blushers… I have truly been converted and I will struggle to use anything else. The product has a slight stickiness to it, without being greasy which has probably been my biggest steer-away factor from other crème blushers. When applying it, one must use a very light handed approach as using a little, goes a long way. If you apply too much, it is easily blended away and doesn’t leave you looking like a rag doll. Unlike normal powder blushers that sometimes need reapplying after a few hours as they lose their colour and intensity, the crème stays on as long as you keep your makeup on. I find its better to be applied over foundation for perfect glowing colour which radiates from the face. Absolutely fantastic. Not my go-to choice for a lip colour but for a natural sheer finish it can pull together the face without having to carry tons of different products around.
Disclaimer: These products were sent to me for review purposes. This in no way has altered my view of the products in anyway and I will happily be purchasing more MUD products in the future.
