Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well? Long time no blog I know but I am back from being MIA and ready to bring you lots of new postings. 2014 has been a big year for me and with graduating I went a little bit OTT and booked lots of exciting things for the summer...I hope you will forgive me haha.
A little while ago I was contacted to see if I would be interested in giving MeMeMe Cosmetics a try. I literally jumped at the chance as I always love trying out and discovering new makeup brands. The brand was not completely new to me as I had heard about it throughout the bloggersphere but this was my first time giving the products a real try and so far I am really impressed. I thought I would bring you a kind of brand overview on some of the products I was sent to give a try. If you like these types of posts I will try and post a few more for you guys featuring some other new and well loved brands of mine!
Firstly, a little overview about the brand themselves. MeMeMe Cosmetics are owned by Lifestyle Aesthetics, a UK specialist provider of Cosmeceuticals, Beauty & Hair Care solutions globally. Since taking ownership of the brand in 2009 they have been working hard to transform MeMeMe into a loveable boutique range. They have been inspired by the ancient Greeks influence on civilisation, the Renaissance and the Bohemian spirit who are all full of adventure, wander-lust and free minded people. They pride themselves in offering affordable luxury within an electric range of handbag essentials, on trend editions, classic lines and gift collections as individual and versatile as their customers and believe in going the extra mile in everything that they do.
This is one of MeMeMe's bestsellers and after giving it a try I can see why it is a favourite. You can give your lashes incredible length and definition with this specially formulated mascara with fibre-lash technology to create high impact lashes every time. Hopefully you can see the little fibres in the close up picture of the wand...they really do cling to your lashes to help create length and volume. One coat gives you the perfect day time application but I would say you need to layer it up a few more times to get a more evening appropriate false lash effect. P.S after applying three coats the formula didn't clump on me...always a plus!
These are another best-selling hero product that MeMeMe offers and it is ideal for adding the perfect amount of colour to your cheeks and lips. I love using cheek and lip tints as you can really pull a makeup look together keeping shades similar but also because you can layer up a powder blush over the tint to really intensify the look and achieve a rosy glow. Cupids Kiss is a gorgeous candy floss bubble gum pink shade which would compliment an array of different makeup looks. Also how adorable is the name?! I am a sucker for packing and cute names...anyone else?!
As soon as I saw the Eye Sweep Precision Eye Definer was a felt tip eyeliner I knew we were going to get a long just fine. I am obsessed with felt tip liners and I find they are so much easier to use when creating the perfect cat eye look. They are what gave me confidence to give winged eyeliner a try! The precision tip applicator allows ultimate control so that you can sweep an eyeliner look evenly and effortlessly in minutes.
How gorgeous are these shades?! I haven't got many baked eyeshadows in my makeup collection so I am excited to give these a proper try and experiment using them wet and dry. All of the shades look like they will compliment each other amazingly and when swatched come out gorgeously pigmented. I feel you could definitely create a Kim K inspired sultry smokey eye with this gorgeous palette.
Another product where I am obsessed with the name, packaging and shades! This multipurpose tint for cheeks and lips is the perfect handbag accessory and ideal for touch ups on the go. A combination of two blendable shades, they are perfect for adding a quick flush of colour to instantly brighten your complexion or lips. An added bonus is that these multipurpose tints are enriched with jojoba oil to moisturise your lips and skin. I also love how you can use either shade individually or both together to create a bespoke shade for you! My only quarrel is after a few uses it might become a tad messy but I am quite good with keeping my makeup tidy and clean so we shall see.
This instantly reminded me of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks and at £9.99 a whopping fraction of the price with practically the same effects. Oh how I love finding dupes! Shimmer stacks are an absolute essential tool for every makeup collection...I use highlighters every single day as i find they really pull a look together and make my skin glow. You can let your inner goddess shine with this ultimate fusion of 5 shimmer powders in an array go nude and golden shades. This multi-purpose product can be used on cheeks and on the eyes for a highlight.
I hope you all enjoyed this post! I really loved trying out and discovering a new brand, I honestly believe I have found some new treasure. Everything is great quality, extremely affordable and would make a great gift or addition to any makeup collection. Since trying out the products I have been using the Shimmer Stack daily and I have thrown the Boho Balm in my bag for touch ups throughout the day at work when I need a little pick me up haha.
