MUA (Makeup Academy) Blush Shade 5





Hi girls! One makeup item that I simply adore has to be blush, so much so that I think it has to be one of my most favourite makeup items to apply and I tend to buy more blushers than I do pretty lipsticks! Shockingly I've never got my hands on any of the MUA blushers and I've heard nothing but amazing things about them in the beauty blogger world. So when I popped into my local Superdrug the other day I decided to part with my £1.00 and purchase one of the new blushers that MUA have just released into their blush range. 

I picked the blush that is in Shade 5 and I have to say the colour of this blush is right up my street and its become my go too blush! My camera has not quite picked up the true colour of this MUA blush, so I'll try my best to explain to you how it really appears. This blush is the most beautiful coral, pink peachy colour and has slight golden shimmer undertones to it. The shimmer however is so fine that it's very subtle once applied to your cheeks and this could easily be worn day or night. 

What I love about this blush it's that for £1.00 it's so pigmented and blends very easily when applying it. There is no fear of having those awful blush lines where it wont blend in nicely which we all know is never a good look! The MUA blush has a slight chalky feel to it, but it once its on your cheeks, it feels like a good quality blush. As for staying power; I wasn't expecting great things because of the price, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to find that four hours after application, the blush it was still where I applied it and only needed a slight touch up. 

MUA have six different shades in their blush collection and I would say that this one is more suited to medium skin tones. But having said that, this blush is very buildable and for those of you with fairer skin, I think that this would still be perfect for you, if you used a light hand when applying it.

Overall I love this blush and love the way it looks on my skin and for the price you can't go wrong. I'm tempted to go back into Superdrug and buy other five shades of blush in the collection. For those thinking about getting this blush you can order it from the MUA website here


   
What do you think beauties? Have you tried this blush yet? Let me know your thoughts.

Lots of Love

  5. Looked a tad orangey in the pics but then when I saw the swatch you can see the coral tone that you've said about. Think I'll have to pick this one up if they have it!

    1. I was usually a bit of a makeup snob and refused to believe that something for a pound could be so good, but I'm pleased I tried MUA as I love their products. I am still wanting to try the liquid liner xx
