A few days ago my Make-up Academy (MUA) order came in thee post and besides the point I went on there for one thing I ended up getting quite a bit in the sale! I didn't get time to try them out though because I woke up the next morning with a huge rash on my face because I'm allergic to something, but I don't know what because I haven't tried anything new. *sad face*
The one thing I was most excited about receiving was the Artiste Palette which includes six eye-shadows, two blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter. The reason I was most excited about this was because I've been lusting after it for a while, but £6 seemed slightly steep for MUA so I decided to wait until there was an offer on. It was cheap anyway but then it was half price and I couldn't resist any longer!
There are no matte colours in the palette which I find is the only downside, but the colours included are amazing! The first colour is the palest blue in the world and oddly looks great swept across the eye, would look amazing with a navy shade to make it smoky.
The second colour is a perfect base shade for make-up, for me anyway. Although it does have some shimmer I like the look of it on, and it's not too over the top.
I'm not sure when I'll wear the next blue shade, It's too light to be dark and too dark to be light, if you get my drift. It is a lovely colour though and I'm sure I'll find a way to use it.
This purple colour is amazing, with tiny specks of blue, I think it'll look nice under the eye blended with a black, you can do a smoky undereye right? I'll make it happen...
The next brown shade is mega shimmery so I don't know how much use I'll get out of it, might look good for a night out though when I want more full on make-up. It's a really pretty colour I just wish I knew how to pull off shimmer shades!
The final colour is a red tones brown and probably my favourite of the bunch. For all it's a brown shade it's not one I've seen very often, because of it's almost terracotta colour. It's super pretty and I can't wait to use it!
Onto the face products!

The first blush is a lovely pink with a hint of shimmer, it's not usually the colour I'd go for but it's super pretty.
The next colour is more Matte, and for me a colour I'll probably reach for quite a bit. I love this kind of blusher and the fact there are two amazing blushers in one little compact is perfect!
The next is a bronzer which doesn't look too orange at all, I've actually used this on my eyes through the crease because it's matte and it looks great there too. Wahhheeeeeyy multi functional! I don't tend to use bronzer that often but in the summer I like to think I'll use this a lot.
Final thing is a highlighter, which looks slightly shimmery to me, but I'll let you know how it goes. I also think this would work as a great eyeshadow for the tear duct to just let a little light into the eye!
Overall I think a great product for a great price! The quality of the products are good for the price and do stay all day! As I've said I'm having a bit of a skin problem at the minute so I haven't tried the face products, but I'm sure they'll be wonderful. I know for a fact this will be in my case when I go on holiday this summer.
fhohfsghcdhzdsf. I'm so excited for my holiday to Berlin. I'm going with my male cousin and I'm sure everyone will think we're dating and everything will be awkward because he's 6'4 and I'm 5'1, did I mention we're related? I think it's going to be brilliant for having everything you need in one place, especially if you travel a lot and don't want your make-up bag to way five stone :P
I also think I'm going to France or Belgium with my parents and siblings in August and London for my 21st birthday in July! Adventures!
Anyhooo, thanks for reading. Love you all!
P.S. New blog background Wooooooo.
