PRODUCT CLAIMS

Creates  a soft dewy finish for sweet blush perfection.

PACKAGING

The packaging is pretty simple. The product comes in a medium-sized rectangular flip open case with a clear top and black underside with instructions and ingredients printed on the back. It is not the best packaging and not very sturdy too but is travel friendly as it is light weight 🙂

QUANTITY

There is 3.2 g of product in it.

MY EXPERIENCE

I personally like cream blushes as they impart a more natural look on the face, that’s purely my opinion 🙂 MUA cream blusher does exactly that, it imparts the same dewy look as it claims. I am not fan of its fragrance though as it is a bit crayon-y but still the product is pretty awesome. It blends on the skin quite beautifully and looks so natural. I also like the color shade too. Staying power is pretty good as even without applying primer it stayed put on my face for a good 5 hours after which it slightly dulls a bit but doesn’t become streaky at all. Also I would like to mention that with this a little goes a long way.

HOW I USE THIS

I personally like using my fingers with the cream blusher. I start taking a little product on my ring finger and patting on my cheeks that’s is on the apples of my cheeks or my cheekbones, depending on the look I want and blend it with my ring finger. And voila you are done. I would also use this in winters as it would be best suited to use in the colder months.

PROS

  • Great color pay off
  • A little goes along way
  • Easy to use and blend
  • Doesn’t streak
  • Staying power is up to 5 hours
  • Travel Friendly
  • Reasonable pricing

CONS

  • Packaging not too sturdy
  • Crayon-y smell

RATING

I shall rate it 4.5/5

PACKAGING

The packaging is pretty good on the lipstick. It comes in a white tube with silver writing on it. It is pretty sturdy to me. A cute little twisty pot is present on the bottom of the tube, which is great for when the lipstick finishes one can use the pot 😉

PRODUCT OVER VIEW

Well to start off I am not a big fan of matte lippies. I feel they are drying and one has to prep and prime before hand to ensure smooth application. Same is the case with this product. I found that it tugged at my lips a bit and I had to swipe the lipstick twice or more so to get the full coverage. I liked the color of the lipstick though. It can be worn every day. And with a smoky eye this lipstick will be rocking 😉

QUANTITY

The lipstick tube contains 3.8 g of product.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

Again you can find all MUA products along with this lipstick from just4girls.pk It retails at Rs. 260/- only. That is pretty affordable. You can even use my discount code that’s is J4GMC5 on checkout to avail 5% discount.

RATING

3.5/5

Third in line is the MUA Mascara in shade 6

PACKAGING

The MUA Mascara shade 6 comes in a long blue colored plastic tube with silver writing on it and black cap. I like the packaging as it clearly tells the product color.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The formula of the MUA Mascara in shade 6 is pretty good. It coats the lashes evenly and makes them stand out. The color I got was a pretty royal blue, not very dark.

QUANTITY

There is 5.0 ml in the mascara tube.

PROS

  • Pretty color selection
  • Nice packaging
  • light weight
  • pocket friendly
  • Good staying power

PACKAGING

The pencil comes with a plastic cap inserted with a small sharpie in it to sharpen the pencil if need be. All the product details are listed on the pencil with a silver color.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The pencil is super smooth and creamy. It needs only a single stroke. There is no tugging. We can wear this multiple ways. The color is true to its name berrywine. I would say it would look great for evening wear and also in fall.

  • Super easy to use
  • Super creamy
  • pretty shades
  • doesn’t tug at all
  • applies super easy
  • Super affordable

CONS
