Hi there! Today’s post is about a bunch of beauty products I swatched the other day. And here they are!
Astor Color Last VIP 240 Desire
Wow, what a bright and velvety red! Beautiful formula and beautiful colour. This is a good lipstick.
MUA MakeUp Academy Power Pout Intense Tint & Balm Crazy In Love
This is supposed to be a tinted balm. It’s a nightmare to apply. The colour is uneven and you’ll have to go over your lips 10 times to get the colour right. Not good.
MUA MakeUp Academy Power Pout Intense Tint & Balm Rendezvous
Just like the tinted lip balm above, this one wasn’t good (for the same reasons).
MUA MakeUp Academy Power Pout Intense Tint & Balm Broken Hearted
3rds time’s the charm? Nope. Another disappointing tinted lip balm from MUA. Also, this is by far the worst with respect to the uneven colour. It’s very streaky.
MUA Sheer Finish Lipgloss Let’s Meet
This lipgloss is a bit too sheer. You would need a lot of product to get any visible colour on your lips. But good if you don’t really want much colour with your lipgloss.
Superdrug B. Lipstick 054 Eton Mess
This is a light red. Not bad but not really my colour.
NYC City Duet Eyeshadow 799B Vintage Style
This is a small eyeshadow duo. An off-white shade and a brown shade.
These are actually quite nice!
Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow 018 Romantic Cool
Another small eyeshadow compact. This one’s from Rimmel.
3 shimmery shades, 1 matte shade (3, grey). The shimmers are surprisingly highly pigmented, but the chalky matte shade isn’t.
L’Oréal La Couleur 015 Flashback Silver
This is a great eyeshadow – it’s bursting with pigment. It’s also easy to blend and I haven’t had any fallout!
And this is it for today’s swatchfest. Thanks for stopping by! xx

Hi there! Today’s post is about Rimmel Colour Rush Trio Eye Shadows 760 Elements. This product was in the half price bin at my local Poundworld store – so it was 50p only! This eyeshadow trio is a leftover item from a discontinued range, but it was sealed, so I was happy to pick it up. But – there’s a but…
I’ve now tried the product, and I’m pretty much underwhelmed. I’m sure you see why when you look at the swatches above. The eyeshadows felt soft and silky, but they weren’t very pigmented. They came out really pale and lacklustre. I think this would explain why this pretty-looking neutral eyeshadow trio ended up in a discount store.
I will definitely use these three eyeshadows, but since they’re so pale, I can only use them as highlighter (shade 1) or blending shades (shades 2 and 3). Anyway, I hope my other recent beauty bargains will not let me down.
