MUA seems to be going from strength to strength at the moment, and they've recently brought out 2 new products, namely the Artiste multi use palette and beaded nail constellations:
MUA are already well known for their eyeshadow palettes (the Undressed palette is a great dupe for the infamous Naked palette), but I think this Artiste palette is more versatile as it contains a mixture of shimmery eyeshadows, blushers, bronzer and a highlighting powder. As expected the packaging is very basic, but the eyeshadows are nice and pigmented. The blushers are a tad powdery, but still pigmented enough to achieve a good colour pay off. Still at £6, I think it's good value, and the variation of colours means it's great for travelling.
Beaded nail art has been around for quite some time now, but thanks to MUA, it's a lot cheaper to recreate the look at home. Previously the only brand to sell beads charged an extortionate £18 per pack! Luckily the MUA nail constellation costs £3 each and there 5 shades to choose from, all of which are named after star signs. The above 2 are 'Scorpio' and 'Libra'. Of the 2, I much prefer Libra's mix of black and green, whereas Scorpio has more of a Christmassy feel, with it's mix of yellows, red, purples and greens. I also like the fact that the lid is double ended, so you can use the thinner end to pour onto the nail, then afterwards, you can simply turn it upside down and use it as a funnel for any excess beads.
