A Little Burlesque

A couple of weeks ago I told you about the launch of the MUD Showroom in Claremont, Cape Town and I purchased some gorgeous new additions for my face. Well, following this I just had to play and I added a little bit of a razzle dazzle with some of MUD lipstick in Burlesque on my lips.

MUD Burlesque

This lipstick is absolutely to die for! It is a matte deep red cherry colour which is highly pigmented. Due to the fact that the lipstick is matte, is has a long staying power and regular touch ups are not necessary.

Even while eating and drinking the colour stays prominent on the lips without fading or wiping off easily. Obviously there are a few lip stick stains on a glass or if you have just applied your lippie then you might smudge it if you go and kiss your beau, but that being said once a couple of hours rolls round you sort of feel that you should maybe check your lips only to be surprised and find out that they are still the same colour as when you left the house which is a total bonus.

I would rate the MUD lipstick range with a better staying power than MAC lipstick, the lipsticks are not as creamy in texture in comparison but they are still moisturising and incredibly effective to rock a bold or natural lip for any occasion.

The lipsticks retail for R210 and are available from MUD South Africa distributors and stockists nationwide, for the nearest to you have a look on their website here.

Hey Pouters!

I’m sure you’ll join in on my excitement that MAC is releasing another collection of products to try soon. Packed with mineralize eyshadows, blush and skin finish collection was inspired by outer space and universe as beautifully illustrated campaign shots show and product names prompt. Full of beautiful colours, hues MAC Heavenly Creatures Collection will hit the stores in July.

MAC Mineralize eyeshadow comes in nine beautiful colours streaked with complementing hues. Aurora, Neo Nebula, Sky, Water, Universe Appeal, Bright Moon, Invincible, Magnetic Attraction and Earthl offer shimmery browns, purples, blues and greens with occasional pops of silver and gold. Also for eyes the collection offers a False Lashes mascara and three makeup brushes.

Created to give cheeks the glow, MAC Mineralize blush offers gold, pink, bronze and amethyst hues streaked with different shades of gold.

MAC Skinfinish offers a range of sparkly compact powders in shades of brown, bronze, gold and pink named Star Wonder, Earthshine, Center of the Universe and Light Year.

The range of lipsticks are featured in pink, red and beige hues in glae and lustre finish in Cut a Caper, Cusp of Dawn, Pleasureseeker, Venus and Fire Sign.

Cremesheen glass comes in brighter hues including pinks and corals and reds in Celestial Kiss, Glaxy Rose, Meteoric, Astral and Strictly Plutonic.

The collection also includes a makeup remover – Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser, a scrub – Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, an eye cream – Mineralize Charged Water Moisture, and gel – Charged Water Moisture Gel.

The names alone, never mind how amazing the colours are, just makes me want to buy THE WHOLE SET of these products! My kit will need a revamp to take on all the new Cape Town faces I will be ‘making up’ in the months to come.
