Fashionista | Customise You Own Palette Review & Swatches

Recently whilst having a snoop for beauty bargains online i noticed that MUA Cosmetics had a new addition to their website, Fashionista. Fashionista is a makeup brand that used to be available in Superdrug, i have no idea if it still is available in Superdrug as in my town we never had the Fashionista stand atall. As i was browsing i couldn't believe the affordable prices, everything is half price on the website right now so it would of been silly not make a cheeky purchase.

I decided to build my own little 4 shade palette, personally i think this is a fab idea as you get to choose all the shades that your filling your palette with, therefore you not going to end up with a palette with the odd shade here or there that you will never use, brilliant. I opted for 2 eye shadows, 1 blusher and a bronzer, you could always opt for all eye shadows or all blushes etc the choice is yours.

The shades i chose are....

Cafe Au Lait is a pearl champagne colour eyeshadow, great for using as a highlight on the brow bone or inner corners of the eyes. 

Brunette Bombshell is a pearl dark chocolate brown eyeshadow with tiny bronze shimmer particles running through it, the pigmentation is amazing and its very soft to the touch.

Amber Glow is the only Blusher i picked up, although it doesn't look like it in the picture its actually a coral shade with rose gold shimmer particles running through it. Its very pigmented and a little definitely goes along way with this.

Paris is the bronzer i picked up, i actually wanted to try this more as a contour shade than a bronzer but i don't really like this colour at all. Its a matte orange/rust colour when applied on the face which looks awful on my skin tone,  however it is quite pigmented for a matte shade so that gives it a few points.

My Swatches....

My Palette....

All in all I'm really impressed with this, its a fabulous idea to create your own little palette, the pigmentation and quality is great and the fact all of it only cost £7 when usually 1 eyeshadow costs £4 alone, its an absolute steal. You can also get a six shade palette for £10 at the moment too. 

I'm not too sure how long the offer runs until so get them why you can girlie's.
