MUA Makeup Academy Skin Define Matte Perfect Primer…

Hello gorgeous, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

I just love the days when my post lady delivers me parcels of gorgeousness, and I was so excited a few days ago to open a lovely surprise parcel from my favourite makeup brand MUA Makeup Academy. They recently launched three new face products adding to their Skin Define range. I’m really excited about this new collection, it’s Matte Perfect! Although I have a dry skin, I do love a matte product, and then add the glow afterwards so I was looking forward to trying them. I’m starting off with the Matte Perfect Primer.

MuaMattePrimer

This is a primer with ingredients to look after the skin, containing Vitamin E and Jojoba. I found firstly that it’s best to give the tube a bit of a shake before dispensing, to amalgamate the product inside, it just seemed a bit “watery” I squeezed a pea sized amount of the clear gel onto the back of my hand, it’s a thicker consistency than I thought it would be, and that pea size amount was plenty to cover my big face! As I applied to my face I noticed the feel of it, it feels more like I’m applying  an oil based product than a primer. There is nothing silicon-y about this primer, although it does contain a silicon derived ingredient, it didn’t leave that dry feel to my skin like other primers have done, it didn’t make my pores feel “choked”. My skin looked smooth and the tone evened out with a mattified look to it. The Matte Perfect Primer is specifically for oily skin, to help eradicate that shine that can emerge during the day, but it wasn’t drying on my skin type. This is a lovely primer, and it works hand in hand with the other Matte Perfect products that I’ll be sharing with you soon. Does it work with other foundations? I haven’t tried yet, so I’ll come back to you with the answer soon. The Skin Define Matte Perfect Primer is available from Superdrug on the High Street and online HERE and also from MUA website HERE for just £5.00.

Thank you for stopping by today.

November Favourites…..

Hello loves, Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

So December is here and it won’t be long until Christmas, if you celebrate it. I thought I’d share with you a few things that I’ve been loving over the last month. Some I’ve only had a couple of days but believe me I absolutely love them!

IMG_9583a

The first product is a lipstick, I never thought that a red lipstick would be in my “favourites” but hey ho, or HO ho (sorry) This is beautiful, by MUA Makeup Academy, just £1.00 and it’s shade “Vintage Rouge” You can find it HERE

I’ve had the beautiful Winter Protection gift set from Heaven by Deborah Mitchell for just a matter of days, and I already am so in love with them! The packaging for a start is beautiful, and I know what goodness are inside the jars. I really can’t wait to review them for you in a couple of weeks. Heaven Skincare can be found HERE

The Rimmel Nail Rescue is forever in my favourites, it really has rescued my nails from many years of wearing acrylics. I use as a base coat each time I do my manicure. This wonderful nail treatment can be found HERE

IMG_2586

My MUA Makeup Academy Undress Your Skin Illuminating Liquid Glow is an absolute must for me at this time of year. It can be used all over the face before foundation for that all over glow, but I just use it on areas of my face that need highlighting. You can find this and other highlighters from MUA HERE

IMG_8128

Crystal Taupe Eyeshine by Ariane Poole* Cosmetics was a gift to me from Ariane herself last Christmas time and I’ve loved it since. It’s a cream to powder eyeshadow that can be used alone or as a base for other eyeshadows. I’ve used it both ways and I love it on it’s own on my mobile lid then with a matte eyeshadow in the crease. It’s so long lasing too, and my go to eye makeup for when I’m visiting family, because I know it will last me the whole day! Visit Ariane Poole* Cosmetics HERE

The Righteous Butter by Soap & Glory has only recently come into my life too. What a gorgeous combination of deliciousness in this amazing body butter! Shea Butter, Bergamot and Mandarin are just three that I’m a big fan of, although I have never been a big fan of body butters, preferring a body lotion, but when this came into my life so did my preference! Find it HERE

So these are just a few of the products that I’ve loved using over the last month, thank you for reading today.

MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick in “Classic Rouge”

Hello lovelies, Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

Since becoming Twitter chums with  gorgeous beauty blogger Becky over at Rougepout Beauty HERE who adores red lipstick, I’ve become a bit more adventurous with my own lipstick colour choices. I’ve never been one to entertain a red lipstick I always thought it didn’t suit me. But as Becky always says there’s a red lipstick out there to suit everyone. So, I was really grateful when MUA Makeup Academy sent me a beautiful red lipstick to try. This is the utterly gorgeous ” Classic Rouge”

IMG_9583a

It’s the first red lipstick that I’ve found that actually suits me, and that makes me so happy, especially with Christmas just a matter of weeks away. This shade of red is very “warm” I can’t use a red that has blue undertones or too cool  and this shade is just perfect for me. 

IMG_9583

MUA lipsticks are really moisturising on the lips, they have a lightweight feel which I prefer, I hate to feel that I have a product on my lips. This one has a pretty gloss to it which makes me very happy, a matte lippy doesn’t suit me either (yes, I’m rather fussy with lip products) it isn’t really a long lasting lipstick, although it would last longer with a lip primer or even applying a lip liner underneath it. Who cares if it doesn’t last too long and has to be reapplied? I certainly don’t, it’s a mere £1.oo from HERE  A perfect lipstick for  Christmas time.

Are you a red lipstick fan? I’d love to know your favourite.

Some More Beauty Booty!!

Hello my loves, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

Well another shopping trip just had to be done at Superdrug, this time it was an online purchase. Three items were in the sale so might not be available at the time of posting this, if they are I’ll leave links for you at the end.

IMG_8290

The first product I picked was something I’ve wanted to try for a while, and that’s the Superdrug own brand of Vitamin E Cleansing Oil. I’ll use it for a wee while and get back to you with my thoughts. It’s just £2.99 for 150 ml HERE To go with the cleansing oil I picked up the Vitamin E Toning Mist, again I’ll get back to you with my thoughts soon. The Toning Mist is also £2.99 HERE

The next 3 items are the ones I picked out of the sale section on the superdrug website. Theres two Dove Purely Pampering body washes with my favourite Shea Butter. They aren’t in the sale now, but the Dove Purely Pampering Hand Cream with Shea Butter is in the sale at just 40p for goodness sake! HERE

Lastly, I picked one of the newest eyeshadow palettes from MUA Makeup Academy, it’s from their Luxe range of cosmetics and I can tell you right now that I’m very excited by this little palette. After dipping my fingers and a brush into it all I shall tell you is that it is just A MAZE ING!! There are two new palettes just launched, I have Utopia and the other is Paradise, both are £8.00 HERE (Superdrug appear to have made a boob in their descriptions, calling both palettes Paradise)

So that’s my little Superdrug online beauty booty. I’ll be back soon with some reviews for you, thank you for stopping by today.
