New Makeup Releases from MUA Spring 2015

It’s been a long while since I’ve been excited by anything new from budget makeup brand MUA, but their Spring 2015 releases caught my eye and I’ve picked up a few beauties recently which I wanted to share with you.

Pro-Base Prime and Conceal Palette £4 and Pro-Base Prime and Conceal Powder £4

These two little palettes contain everything you need to conceal and correct a whole range of skin dilemmas. One is a cream-based palette and the other a powder to set the cream. Although the colours look a little ‘out-there’ in the pan, they are actually brilliant for counteracting a range of skin issues:

Peach – neutralises dark circles
Lilac – brightens tired and dull skin
Yellow – cancels out under eye circles and dark patches
Green – counteracts redness

I suffer from all of these at some point during each month, so it’s really handy to have this to cover all bases – the cream palette even includes a highlighter in the centre, so it really is a lovely little all rounder. The powder palette is great for taking away any unwanted shine on the skin, and also has a brightening effect when swirled and applied all over the face.

MUA Luxe Whipped Velvet Blush in Chi Chi £3

The Luxe Whipped Velvet Blushes come in a range of five colours – Chi Chi is somewhere between a coral and bright pink shade, which I am embracing in the run up to Spring. Whipped by name and whipped by nature – these blushes are literally like a thick whipped cream consistency which feels a little odd to start with, but actually means that you can apply with a very light touch and it blends a dream, giving a lovely natural look. The first swatch above is straight from the pan and the second is after blending.

Sweet Sheen Lip Balm in Coral Reef £2

Hmmm…remind anyone of the Revlon Lip Butters much….?! That was my first thought when I saw these and for £2 I had to give one a go. Coral Reef is more of a pink shade than a coral, but it’s a beautiful bright Spring shade. The colour payoff is surprisingly good for a tinted lip balm and I think I’ll be wearing this a lot over the coming months. It also smells like vanilla cupcakes – what’s not to love?

Have you tried anything new from MUA recently and what do you think of the new Spring 2015 releases?
