Bargain product 3

Makeup October 9, 2013 Naomi

Another beauty steal, this time the MUA shimmer kisses bronzer. This retails for around £3 but it is often on offer for £1.50! bargain.

I  will start by saying this is not your full on bronzer. The colour and pigments are not strong so you will not get heaps of colour pay off if you use it as a bronzer. For me it works best as an eye quad and as a highlighter and that is how I like to use it.

As eye shadows the colours are lovely. As the product title suggests they are shimmery colours not matte but they are not too glittery or cheap looking. I like to use them all as a regular all over the eye colour and the whiter shade as a brow highlighter or to brighten up the inner tear duct area. They are not the most pigmented colours I own but with a good primer they will last you a good few hours.

As a highlighter to the cheeks I swirl my blush brush over all 4 shades and then apply to the top of the cheek. The shimmer is really nice. Not in your face but subtle and giving a gentle glow. For a cheap product this works well and I have not been disappointed. It is not the most long wearing product in the world but it does have a pretty finish.

If you have fair skin like me then this palette is ideal for you if you want a colour that is not harsh. It adds a little warmth to the face without being too obvious. As eye shadows they really are nice, wearable, everyday colours. I have added a swatch of each colour below. Click on the pic to enlarge.

    I really like the MUA bronzer, some of them may not last al day long, but you can’t expect miracles for that price and they are still pretty good! Xx

    I agree Charlotte, for the price you can’t really grumble if it does not last all day.x

    What pretty shade, I bet they would look great as eyeshadows!

    I think it works best as a eyeshadow quad, the colours are lovely on the eye.x
