Review | MUA Mosaic Blusher and Contour Pen

Continuing my adventures into the world of MUA make up, I recently purchased two of their newest products, the Mosaic Blusher English Rose and 3 in 1 Contour Pen.

The Contour Pen is available in a range of colours, however I stuck to what I know and purchased the black pen. It costs £1.50 from Superdrug and is a good size for the price. 


The pen has a angled nib which can be used to create a variety of looks. I have only ever used a standard nib so was interested as to if this would actually be any different. 


The back of the packaging shows you three different looks that you could create with the different angles on the pen. The three looks are "Dramatic", "Glamorous" and "Ultra Chic". I have not tried any of these as it seemed a bit fussy and I am too impatient! 


I used the edge of the nib to create a straight line across the eyelid which was fairly easy to do. However I noticed that the point of the pen had already curved away from the straight point that it originally had so it may be difficult to create the looks exactly how the packaging tells you too. 

I was quite impressed with the result of the Contour Pen, the colour was quite strong and easy to apply.
However it did not last all day and faded fairly quickly. It also seems smug able so would be good for creating a "smokey eye".


I never use blusher and this is the first one I have purchased in a few years. It cost £2.50 from Superdrug.
The packaging is simple and the blusher is a fairly decent size for the price. 



The colours are lovely and compliment each other well. At first I thought the mauve would stand out but it blends in and is not as strong as I thought it would be. There is a slight shimmer to the blusher but it is still subtle and I would wear it daily. It lasted for about 6-7 hours. Quite impressive for the price!


Sorry for the startled look. I had not been awake long! (poor excuse)
I had to put a fair amount of blusher on to make it noticeable but do not think it shows a lot. 


Much love xx
