Teeny Tiny Haul, MUA Make Up & A Mac Dupe

Hello my little sweeties,

I've got a really small haul for you, as you may or may not know, I have been saving for my holiday next month, and therefore shouldn't be spending any money. However, yesterday I was really bored, and what do I do when I get bored? Get cravings to go shopping.

So I popped into Superdrug and picked up these three items:

Revlon lipgloss in Peach Petal, which is gorgeous and smells fan-tab-ulous! And from the much talked about Makeup Academy £1 range, I got two items to test out - nail polish in shade 4, a coral and an eyeshadow in shade 11 Pearl. So far, I can confirm I will be going back for more of these products, and here's why...

And here's the dupe alert!

MAC Satin Taupe & MUA Shade 11

Top: MAC
Bottom: MUA
The MUA eyeshadow is just gorgeous, I love the pearly sheen to it and for the bargain price of £1 its an amazingly high quality, highly pigmented shadow. Massive thumbs up! I'm going to be picking a few more shadows up sometime in the near future, so look out for that.

Onto the nail polish, yes it is a very small bottle, but again for the price, you can't really complain, this is how it came out with two coats:

IRL it is much more coral than it shows up here, but never the less, it is a great polish.

Finally I thought I'd just throw in the fact that Faith have gone into Administration, if you didn't already know, so all their stores are closing down, this saddens me. However it does mean massive clearance sales, as I had been on the look out for a small white bag for my hols, I picked this up, reduced to £14.40



  1. I'm dying to try out some of the new Superdrug MUA range, but it doesn't seem to be in any of my local stores - gutted, it looks great!

  2. Now I just have to find a Superdrug that sells the MUA range. I'm very excited about trying their products.

  3. I wish they would get an MUA line here in the states, but I don't think it's going to happen. It seems like such great make up for so cheap! It needs to come to the states! :)

  4. Oooh so going to try the satin taupe dupe! For 1 pound you can't go wrong!x

  5. Fantastic Satin Taupe dupe! I personally love the MUA shade even more, it's more pearly (well at least in the picture)...I wish they had it here!

  6. omg I can't believe Faith is closing down, I love their shoes and boots!! :(

  7. I've never heard of this brand, where do they sell it?


  8. @heartshapedbruise, aww keep looking, I'm sure it'll turn up in a store near you soon! xx

    @Helen, I'm excited to try more of them now that the inital two I got were so good! xx

    @Stephanie, aww you never know, one day! Or maybe you could try and arrange a swap between you and someone from the UK! xx

    @Daisy, I know, I can't wait to try more, see if I can find any more MAC dupes! xx

    @Jo, it is much more pearly IRL too, I agree. It's gorgeous!

    @Kirsty, thank you! It makes me feel all summery xx

    @Sophie, I know, gutted! I will miss their sales, they were amazing! xx

    @Awaiting, as I said, the MUA is from Superdrug :) xx

  9. The nail polish is absolutely gorgeous! Fab post. :)

  10. I love that nail polish! Well, I've never used it but I mean I love the color! LOL. It looks great on your nails. :) And that shadow! OMG. That is gorgeous! Cute bag, too!
