MUA Makeup Academy Pro/Base Primer Oil with Gold Flakes…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa

I had been umming and ahhing about getting this product, which is by MUA Makeup Academy, one of my favourite makeup brands. I went to Superdrug a few weeks ago and decided to give it a go. This is the MUA Pro/Base Primer Oil with God Flakes.

From the moment I tried a little of this product on the back of my hand, I knew that it was definitely for me. Firstly can I just say if you have a really oily skin type I don’t think that this will be for you? Also if you like your foundation on the matte side then this product maybe not for you too. I have recently got into a dewier type of foundation for myself as I feel it is better for me now at my age. In my opinion, this lovely oil primer with the gold flakes is absolutely a must for anyone who is about my age (59) with dry skin and who loves makeup. I applied this over my light gel moisturiser at the start of my makeup application. It’s a lovely glass bottle with a pipette applicator that I did drop straight onto my skin with, rather than add the product to my hand then apply. I mainly concentrated on my cheeks hoping that the primer would blur out my enlarged pores somewhat. It didn’t, but the glow it gives my skin I love so I don’t mind the pores at all. It’s not a really oily oil and it certainly doesn’t smell like an oil either it’s really quite a pleasant smell to it. I then applied a matte foundation by another brand over the oil primer using my usual foundation brush (I chose a matte foundation to see how it worked with the oil primer) I did find that I wasn’t using as much foundation as normal, and yes the glow of the primer came through alright, it’s really quite attractive too. I love this! And no, there are no flecks of gold stuck to my face making it all glittery. My skin looks dewy, not oily and it certainly doesn’t feel oily either.

I have found my perfect primer in this and it’s a bargain at just £4.00 too! You can get it from the MUA website HERE and also from Superdrug on your local High Street, or online HERE

[AD-Gifted] Super Stylo Satin Finish Lipstick by MUA Makeup Academy…..

Hey there lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty!

I had a little squeal of delight when 6 gorgeous looking lipsticks by my favourite makeup brand MUA Makeup Academy arrived for a little play.

I have 6 shades from the 8 that are available. They are lovely chunky twist up lipsticks, with the absolutely gloriously MUA usual fragrance of vanilla! All of them are so wonderfully pigmented and glide on perfectly leaving a very pretty sheen to the lips. They last a good couple of hours on me, I am a constant lip licker and I drink a lot of water and a few coffees through the day. But re-applying doesn’t bother me as the lipsticks aren’t drying at all, they feel so moisturising. The darker shades do leave a slight stain on the lips as they wear down, and even though I have nearly 59 year old lips, these did not “bleed” into my lines, AND I wasn’t wearing any lip liner either.

Let’s look at the pretty colours! I just want to clarify that the numbers on the lipstick are not the numbers that MUA have put on them. Mark popped them on for me so that I’m able to give you the shade names more accurately.

 1. FIRST CLASS.  beautiful blue toned red.

2. ELITE Pink with brown tones.

3, SUPER NUDE a cool toned nude

4, WORLD CLASS a warm pink nude

5, HEROIC a warm nude

6, MAJOR a warm orange-brown

You can pick up these gorgeous lipsticks from Superdrug on your High Street or online HERE. And right now there is a 3 for 2 on on cosmetics until 26th March.

Thank you for stopping by and reading today.

Burning Embers by MUA Makeup Academy…

Hello my lovelies, I’m Teresa, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

In my attempt to start feeling Springlike I finally got hold of an MUA Makeup Academy palette that I’ve been hankering after since it was launched. This is the Burning Embers eyeshadow palette, and the colours just say Spring and Summer to me. Check this little stunner out!

This gorgeous palette houses 25 eyeshadows, pink and earthy tones from muted to bright, a mix of satin, shimmer and matte. As is usual with MUA these eyeshadows are so pigmented, soft and buttery in texture and easily blendable to an intensity you like. I would wear all the colours in this palette, I may be pushing 58 but that is why I can! I am also going to be colouring my hair Rose Gold soon, and there are many colours in the Burning Embers palette that will compliment my new hair shade. I love this palette!

The MUA Makeup Academy Burning Embers palette is £8.00 on their website HERE. BUT over on the Superdrug website it’s a *star buy* at just £6.00 HERE.

Lots of love, Teresa

Feeling the Heat with MUA Makeup Academy… Fire Vixen Eyeshadow Palette

Welcome my lovelies to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

A lot of bloggers have been getting hot under the collar over the new eye shadow palette to be released by Urban Decay, Naked Heat. I am not able to purchase a palette with  that price tag at the moment, so I decided to treat myself to one of the newest palettes that MUA Makeup Academy have released, and it’s just as “hot” this is the Fire Vixen Palette.

This palette is going to take me through the rest of Summer through to Autumn, Winter and all over the Christmas holidays with these 15 buttery soft glorious eye shadow shades!

Aren’t these colours just fabulous? From pretty nude shades, to bronze, copper, burnt orange and a gorgeous cranberry red, with grey’s and silver and different shades of pink, and 8 of the colours are Matte! The colours that I used on myself (and to be honest I think I will use them more than others in the palette) are the first one on the top row, the cream all over my lid and up to the brow, the fourth one along also top row I applied to the mobile lid, and the last matte shade on the top row I blended into the crease and slightly above to actually give myself the look of a lesser hooded eye. They blend out so beautifully too, this is a gorgeous palette and one I feel I shall be using rather a lot.

You can check this and other such gorgeousness from MUA Makeup Academy HERE.

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?
