MUA Makeup Academy Unique Lip Gloss…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I have something Unique to share with you today. Unique to MUA Makeup Academy anyway. This is a pretty Unique Lip Gloss.

It’s from the MUA Luxe range of their gorgeous products and it is said to adapt itself using the pH in your body to give you your perfect pink shade on your lips. Although this is a clear pink lipgloss it applies clear to the lips. Then after a while it should take on your own shade of Pink. Below is what MUA says:

“Apply this pH reactive lip gloss to your lips for your personalised shade. Upon application the formula adapts to your natural pH to create a bespoke subtle pink shade.”

Before I started trialing this lipgloss, which I did purchase myself by the way. I used my MUA Lip scrub to get rid of any dryness that I’ve been getting in the hot weather. I applied it to clean dry lips, and it applies beautifully, there is no stickiness to this lipgloss, it doesn’t feel in any way gloopy and it’s so glossy on the lips too! Did it change colour on my lips though? Did I get my own bespoke shade of pink? Well, my lips did appear to be darker looking in appearance but they weren’t pink at all. Maybe the darker my lips were looking IS my bespoke shade of pink? I must say they did look glossy and hydrated, and I do enjoy wearing the Unique Lip Gloss, and it’s only £4.00 HERE.

Have you tried the Unique Lip Gloss from MUA? If you have I’d love to know what you think to it. Did you get your bespoke shade of pink?

A Trio of MUA Makeup Academy Pretties!

Hello lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

A couple of weeks ago I had a trip to our local Superdrug and treated my self to a few goodies, three of which are from MUA Makeup Academy, my favourite budget makeup brand.

I will be writing separate reviews on each of the products, but for now I’m just sharing with you the products I purchased. If you have these, I’d love to know your thoughts too. I’m nosy like that.

At the top there you can see that I have a really pretty eye shadow palette from MUA. Really lovely shades that are perfect for the Summer months, and they are ALL matte eyeshadows too, that’s a result. This is the Matte Soft Focus Eyeshadow Palette. I’ll have a review of the palette soon on EAB.

Next is a product that I have been after for ages, it’s the Custom Colour Foundation Mixer, in the shade Lightening, Cool. I’ve got a few foundations that I can’t use as they are too dark for me, so when I saw MUA had launched this product into their range I was so happy. I will have a review of the foundation mixer coming up soon.

Lastly, this lip gloss intrigued me. It’s from the MUA Luxe range and it’s called Unique Lip Gloss. This is what MUA says “Apply this pH reactive lip gloss to your lips for your personalised shade. Upon application the formula adapts to your natural pH to create a bespoke subtle pink shade.” I will of course get back to you when I’ve used it a few times and let you know if it does work. There might even be a pic of my lips! yes I’m getting daring aren’t I? But I feel that with a product like this I have to do it.

Okay beauties, I’ll be back soon with reviews on these three products. In the meantime if you would like to check them out for yourself the link to MUA Makeup Academy is HERE. Also Superdrug too is HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today.

 

January Favourites!

Hello lovelies! Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

So the first month of a new year has gone and we’re into February, I for one cannot wait for Spring, my favourite season. Just to have some bright light coming in through the windows would be oh so good! Not just for my sense of well-being but it would make the taking of photos for my blog so much easier too. Anyhow, I thought as it’s a new month I would share with you what I’ve loved through January. Let me start with some skincare.

beepeel

I am still enjoying my Heaven Skincare Bee Peel. I use it twice a week at night-time after cleansing, just leaving on my face for ten minutes before rinsing off, leaves my skin feeling fresher and softer, looking plumper and more radiant and enlarged pores appear lessened. AND, I have used the Bee Peel on my hands too! I shall tell you more about that in a later blog post. I have a review of Heaven Skincare Bee Peel HERE 

IMG_3611

An oldie but a goodie! The wonderful MUA Makeup Academy Undressed palette has been my go to eyeshadow during January. When this palette was launched it was dubbed the perfect dupe for the Urban Decay original Naked palette. Many dupes have come after this one, but for me this MUA one is my favourite, and the best. If you would like to see my review you can find it HERE. You can purchase from HERE.

MUA Makeup Academy’s Metallic Liquid Lips in the shade Bedazzle has been a big favourite over the last month. It’s moisturising and glossy for the colder months of Winter, and it’s super pigmented too. You can find more shades of Metallic Liquid Lips HERE,  and I also have a review HERE.

IMG_9277

This Wonder Balm from Beauty Kitchen has been a saviour of my nails and lips throughout the whole of the last year, not just the last month. I use it all the time, keeping it to hand everywhere I go. I use it as a lip balm to keep my lips from becoming dry and it’s fantastic to massage into my cuticles between manicures too. Find Beauty Kitchen HERE. And I have a review HERE.

The absolute highlight of January for me was becoming a winner! I won Heaven Skincare Best Blogger award at their annual awards event last Sunday 22nd January. Unfortunately Mark and I couldn’t attend the event in Birmingham, but when I found out I had won I was absolutely gobsmacked, shocked, humbled, and every positive emotion you can think of I felt it. I will be writing a blog post about winning my award because there are a few people I need to thank properly, and a separate post is needed for that.

Thank you for stopping by today my loves.

August Favourites!

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

So here we are in a new month, the year is just flying and it will be Christmas and New Year before we know it! I must admit I’m looking forward to the Autumn/Fall season, bring on the darker nail polish and lipstick, the fluffy jumpers and onesies, hot chocolate with marshmallows and spicy candles too! Anyway, because it’s a new month I thought that I would tell you what I’ve been loving during the month of August. Here we go….

FreedomAudaciousMattes

First up is this gorgeous matte eyeshadow palette from Freedom Makeup. It’s called the Pro 12 Audacious Matte Palette. I’ve enjoyed using this palette a lot, the pigment and colour payoff is great on most of the shades, although I had a problem with one or two of them. You can read a full review HERE.

FreedomGlowTonic

Next up is another Freedom Makeup product, this time it’s skincare. I’ve really enjoyed using the ProStudio Glycolic Glow Tonic. I don’t have the budget for the “high-end” glow tonic everyone raves about, but apparently this is a great “dupe” for it. I haven’t been using it every day, just two or three times a week at night-time only and I love what it’s doing to my skin. You can read my full review HERE.

HeavenAfternoonTeaDuo

Now for something VERY luxurious! I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous duo from Heaven Skincare over on a Twitter competition. This is Afternoon Tea Hand & Body Wash and a Hand & Body Cream. It really is just so very luxurious, it smells amazing it’s like having a spa every day in your own bathroom! The wash doesn’t dry out my skin either like a lot of body washes do. The body cream is thick and creamy, it feels cooling when I apply it and it sinks in like a dream. The fragrance remains on the skin for hours afterwards, sometimes I don’t feel the need to wear perfume, yes it’s that good! See my full review HERE.

I’ve been using my Ariane Poole Cosmetics Plumping Lipgloss rather a lot over August. It gives me colour on my lips but in such a sheer and pretty coverage, perfect for Summertime. I have the shade “Wonder” it’s that “my lips but better” sort of colour, really pretty. It’s not sticky or gloopy, it’s light and comfortable to wear. If you would like to read my full review, click HERE.

Another favourite that I was enjoying during August was the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. I was just so proud of all our (Team GB) athletes. As a huge tennis fan I was over the moon when Andy Murray became Olympic Champion for the second time. Now we are in September and the Paralympics starts next week, you can be sure I shall be cheering on Team GB, especially sprinter Johnnie Peacock who is actually a “local lad” to me.

I hope you have had a great August, see you for some more reviews very soon.

Makeup Revolution 2nd Birthday…..My First Ever Products!

Hello loves, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

So everyone probably knows by now that Makeup Revolution has celebrated their 2nd birthday, I was there on launch day, it was my first ever “blogger” event and I remember it being a very long and tiring day for both me and Mark. I saw all of the products that Makeup Revolution had in their range then, and now look at them! They have taken the budget makeup market by storm. I came away from the launch with a lovely selection of products in a goody bag, my toes were about to be dipped into the Makeup Revolution water! Below are the products that were in my goody bag, if they are still available I’ll leave a link to them and a link to my reviews too.

IMG_0202

The Salvation Intense Lip Lacquer in the shade A Love Like That was the first lip lacquer that I’d tried from any brand. You can see my thoughts HERE and they are now just £1.50 HERE

IMG_0218

Another lip product in my goody bag was the lovely Amazing Sheer Lipgloss in the shade Move a Little Closer. You can take a look at my review HERE and they are now just 50p on the Makeup Revolution website HERE.

IMG_9503

The Matte Effect Foundation wasn’t one of my favourite products in the goody bag, I was given the shade Ivory which I thought was too light for me at the time. You can see my very honest thoughts HERE and it’s still available HERE.

IMG_9433

This single eyeshadow is in the shade Candy Frosted, and I was scared to use it because it was such a bright colour, but see what I really thought HERE.  They are still available HERE

20140402_171845

I was really excited to have this in my goody bag, it’s the Vivid Baked Bronzer in the shade Golden Days. See my thoughts HERE. Some shades are still available HERE.

20140402_171810

 The Vivid Baked Highlighter in the shade Peach Lights was a joy to behold, see why HERE this highlighter isn’t available at the moment, but there are other beautiful highlighters to choose from HERE

IMG_9106

My very first Makeup Revolution palette was the Redemption Palette Iconic 3 which at the time everyone was saying  it was a “dupe” for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. See what I thought HERE it’s still available now on the website HERE

20140420_180952

I also had this stunning nail polish in my goody bag, a very dark almost Navy blue. I still use it now, but unfortunately Makeup Revolution no longer stock nail polish on their website. Thank goodness I have every single colour they had at the time!

IMG_9901

This Amazing Lengths mascara is still being used, for my eyebrows. See my thoughts HERE it doesn’t appear to available now, but there are other lovely mascaras to see HERE

IMG_0108

Another product that was quite scary when I first saw it was the Awesome Metals eyeshadow, it’s a beautiful eyeshadow but it wasn’t for me. See my review HERE and the whole colour range HERE

IMG_9446

This is the last product that was in my goody bag from the launch of Makeup Revolution, it’s from their amazing £1.00 range and I had been given the shade The One. I was scared of it being a nude shade, but see my exact thoughts HERE and it’s still available HERE

So they were my first ever products from Makeup Revolution, some hits some misses. My collection of Revolution products has since grown, I have quite a few pieces now and I shall be purchasing a few more as soon as I’m able too. What was your first MUR product? I’d love to know.

 Happy 2nd Birthday Makeup Revolution
