Remember Beauty+Life's MUFE at Sephora alert? Today my sister and I were roaming around sephora after a day's work (for me, a course) and we were about to walk out of Sephora when I saw MUFE! We had such a lovely time talking to the MUFE MUA (read: she is not the sales-staff, just attached to the brand as a MUA) and she was amazing, and it is truly one of the best experience to be talking to a professional about makeup products. And the amazing irony is that while I was at course today, I was thinking of paying the MUFE store at Stamford House (was in the area) and checking out the products again...but I didn't get to going there eventually. Perhaps everything is a blessing in disguise.
Ok, cut to the chase. I bought the infamous No.92 eyeshadow, and an Aqua Eyes Liner in No. 19. Honestly, my camera just didn't pick up the purple tones of the products and they end up looking blue and black. But No. 92 is a true bright purple. All the MUFE eyeshadows are super pigmented!!! And lovely MUA was showing me how to layer their glitters over the eyeshadows, man, they look really dazzling and if I didn't act rationally, I would have bought a bunch of the pigments.
Feeling playful with the eyeliner, and I swatched a heart shape with it. Cute! Deep purple metallic in finish. Very creamy and pigmented. And the eyeshadow, is pretty intense on its own but over a primer it is the bomb!
** Hastily applied the eyeshadow and blended out the edges. And hastily drawn on the eyeliner too.
Ok, if you are not intrigued by No 92 yet, check out WSITN's recent haul video which featured the purple eyeshadow (click here)
Or, you can check out makeupbyRenRen's kick-ass dramatic purple eyeshadow in this video
At this point, I might want to add that No 92 is part of a growing list of products in my stash which I got because of the hype/mystery/fascination built up by people I have heard and seen using and raving about. The rest include:
- MAC Parrot eyeshadow
- MAC Petticoat MSF
- MAC Club eyeshadow
- MUFE HD Finishing powder
- Barry M 129 lip-paint
- MAC Peppermint Patti
- China Glaze For Audrey
Am I the only guilty of being hyped up one here?
OK, I did promise some MAC updates as mentioned in the title of this entry, and if you want to know more MAC updates, check out my previous posts HERE and Beauty+Life's latest blog entry. This is regarding the MAC Colourcaft collection.
*** STYLE MAG (July) featured the Colourcraft collection in their pages, and you can't see the products clearly but the spread alone is droolsome enough. As usual, they get the names of everything wrong! But just names alone, I am definitely getting Daft Pink, and one of the eyeshadow quad with the black, blue, white etc.
Supposedly the collection comes out this Friday, and since I am still on course in the town area, it's so easy for me to check out the collection in person. I think I will mostly like just get one Mineralised Blush, and one MSF from this collection. The eyeshadows are cute, but most likely I will not use them, so I will give them a miss.
Fresh Cut palette is a really quick and easy to use everyday palette. I used it today, and I really like the coral shades in that palette!
I rubbed my finger over the eyeliner swatch, and guess what, it stayed put!! No smudges!
Look mom, no smudges!!
MUFE Aqua Eyes liner retails for S$32, and the eyeshadow retails for S$35 while the 'diamond' range with shimmer (really PRETTY) retails for S$39.
Other items worth checking out if you are new to this brand: the full coverage concealer, the concealer corrector palette, the whole HD range, the loose eyeshadows, and the Aqua Liners. Oh, EVERYTHING basically.
That's all, and thanks for reading!
