Huge MUA haul

As I discovered that MUA(Makeup Academy) does international shipping for a decent price at 7,5£, I just went crazy because the products are so cheap!

I’m just gonna show you quickly what I’ve got. I was most excited about the eyeshadow palettes. I know it was a little silly to get those three that remind so much of each other, but they were so cheap! -only 4£.. I’m gonna give one of them to my roomie though. It will take forever to swatch them, so it’s gonna be another time.

Upper left – Heaven and Earth. Upper right – Undressed. Lower left – Glamour Nights. Lower right – Undress me too.

And then there are the foundations. I have been looking for some lighter foundations. The drugstore foundations here in Hong Kong are all too light for me, and I’m just not very keen on buying high-end foundations these days, so thought I might as well give these a try. I was searching for a while hoping to get the right shades. Luckily, they are quite good matches (I’m NC42). The fashionista feels quite thick(3£ – saved 9£). The matte feels (surprise) matte when putting on the skin(sales price is 1£). And the BB cream consistency feels pretty light(4£).

Fashionista foundation in Desert. Matte foundation in shade 3 gentle fawn. BB foundation in dark.

Swatch order according to the above. Blended out at the bottom(although it’s barely noticeable).

And then we’ve got some crazy lashes for 1£ as they’re doing half price now.

Sassy and Vixen.

Some brushes – E3 blending eye shadow brush(1,95£) and F2 foundtion blending brush(3£).


And then I bought 2 power pout colour intense tint & balm in broken hearted (left) and irreplacable (right). I accidentally cut a whole chunk off when I tried to rip off the packaging, so I’ve stored it in a little container. These give a more sheer finish, but feels very soft on my hand. These are 3£.

From left to right: I got 2 matte lipsticks in wild berry and peach keen. And then atomic tangerine and ultra pink. I had hoped that the berry would have been more pigmented, but I’m quite satisfied with the pigmentation with the rest. The fashionista double take lipsticks(the red ones) feel very very soft on my hand. The matte ones are 1£, and fashionista 1,5£ on sale.

Then there are the “regular” lipsticks in shade 13, 5, 3 and 7. I must say, I’m very happy with the pigmentation except for the light pink one – I just thought it wasn’t so glittery. 1£ per lipstick.

Lastly, I’ve got a blush in shade 3 and a lipliner. I didn’t swatch the lipliner as I couldn’t tear up the packaging haha. I expected the colour to be a deeper anyway, so I’m a little disappointed with this one. The blush seems to be quite pigmented and has a really natural colour. 1£ for the blush and same price for the lipliner.

Alright. That was it. Genereally very happy with what I’ve got. I will do a review of the products at some point. Hope you liked my haul 😀 I’m super excited!

  1. After a swap with my friend in the UK, I LOVE MUA! It’s a brand that I’d been wanting to try and it was worth the wait! 🙂 Looks like you picked up some real winners! I can’t wait to see what you do with them.

      1. Until now I’ve only made one order from them and fortunately I’m happy with all the product,s. A little less with the Undress me too palette. But I’ve never tried elf! Every time I go to elf page I can’t find nothing that really makes me want to buy it.

  2. Is MUA good products? I see a lot of people are using their palletes but I never tried and I can only order online. Do they worth ordering?:)

  3. Great haul! I haven’t bought anything MUA in a while but I loved the undress your skin primer and one of their loose powders the most! Looking forward to reading your reviews
