NEW MUG eyeshadow swatches & lipstick review


Hi everybody! I am back with another review, this time it will be only swatches and a little description of the eyeshadow, but I wil do a review for MUG lipsticks.

Let's start with the shadows. You can read my previous review HERE.

(The packaging. Very  convenient.)


Here are all the eyeshadows I received. Top row are my favourites, and so on. I want to mention that there were no bad ones, as I think that MUG eyeshadows are simply amazing , considering price and other good features.
I based my favourites on creaminess and unique-ness of the colour.

(one sweep swatches, with NO base. Some of them are just wonderful)


With all the names and the REAL swatches with a base.




They're pretty much amazing. Check them out HERE

...And now on to the lipsticks...
The packaging- very beautiful, I just love the little details like that, it shows how much effort they've made to make them.


First of all, I want to say that they're pretty amazing. The texture is very creamy. They're a bit sheerer than I expected, but you can build layers with them.

My favourite one is Innocent - which is a warm tone, nude peach. Absoluteley amazing on my lips! It suited me so well that I got compliments. I have a very fair skin, so i think this is perfect for fair skin girls.

(NAME ALERT!!-this is a swatch of INNOCENT, I made a mistake with title pic)

Famous - on lips , color is not as dark and " violent " as in the tube. It's more like deep magenta color.


Adorable is a warm toned nude-ish pink color, gorgeous aswell.


(NAME ALERT!!-this is a swatch of ADORABLE, I made a mistake with title pic)

The only thing is that they are so creamy - it makes them very fragile, and as it is a very hot summer here in Latvia, they are very ...how to say...melty-like and it's easy to brake them. I broke Adorable and Innocent at the bottom of the stick, so I had to depot them.

So here is the conclusion:

Texture - They are extremely creamy, bit melty-like. Other than that, they applied beautifully.  4/5
Packaging -  I'm a sucker of thoughtful packaging, so i will give 5/5
Price/value - Website says that it is 7.99$ for 4 grams / 0.14 oz , which is a very reasonable, even small price. Here in Latvia, it is almost impossible to buy a beautiful lipstick with that price.  Maybe a bit too pricey for some of you. (adressin' US, Canada and Rest of the world) as you have more choice on those drugstore brands 5/5
Longetivity - Stayed on me very well, didn't bleed or smudge. I used lip pencils underneath. 4/5

BUY EM HERE....Stay tuned for the looks... :)

Something randomly new


On the nails I used - No brand purple polish, which I stippled to make a very rough transition effect. Then applied MAC 3D silver pigment and finished with top coat.

Today I decided to create a very soft smoky eye ;)


Also did a sketch for next photoshoot .


And just as a teaser- for the next video I am going to show how I acheived this very high fashion glossy look, so stay tuned ;)


BB, Kristiana. :*
