Max Factor Miracle Touch Blush in Soft Candy

This blush was a gift from my lovely sister and it is the most neglected makeup products I have, I am not sure why I underestimated this blush for so long,MAX Factor Miracle Touch Blush in Soft Candy,a happy cherry red color.

Max Factor Miracle Touch creamy blush in soft candy (with flash)
Max Factor Miracle Touch creamy blush in soft candy (without flash)
I think its around 7 pound,which is alot for the amount of product,this is rude of Max Factor not to mention the grams of product they'd put in this plastic little container!!

when I first swatched this blush it felt more like a greasy lip balm,My skin was very irritated (due to acne) at that time so I was unable to judge the quality of the product,but I recently started to wear this blush and discovered that its not greasy or creamy,it has a very soft texture and blends almost effortlessly on my cheeks and gives a natural flush of color and a subtle sheen,it has a incredible staying power and takes 2,3 minutes to set on the skin,I wouldn't buy this particular color again because the color doesn't look flattering on my skin tone,I would recommend this color for fair to medium skin tones.you can see in the swatches how pigmented it is so just a little bit is enough for both cheeks! 

Available in four shades Soft Copper,Soft Pink,Soft Candy and Soft Murano at boots UK, superdrug UK, and Naheed super Market Karachi.

Have a nice day:)

Hey everyone....I recently went to Naheed super market and discovered CATRICE Cosmetics display...I got so exited and spent most of my time checking out the products,I was really surprised at the quality of their products and the prices are awesome,I bought myself a foundation (I'll review it very soon).

The sales girl at CATRICE counter was very nice and helpful,she did my makeup,along with other products she also used Lash Plus Lash Growth Volume Mascara,Made To Stay Long Lasting Eyeshadow and I fell in love with both products,I am definitely going to buy that.

most of CATRICE products are between Rs.500 and 650 and some eyeshadow palettes are for Rs.650 which is not bad since you are getting four different shades,foundations are under Rs.1000,nail polishes are Rs.310.

MUA Makeup Academy Single Eyeshadows-Review,Swatches

Before I start the review let me share the exciting news that MUA cosmetics has recently launched their cosmetics in Pakistan,You can order their cosmetics only from  www.just4girls.pk

I got the eyeshadows almost 8 months back when a dear friend was visiting UK,I only got myself 4 eyeshadows mainly because I have super sensitive eyes...my eyes easily get irritated,watery, itchy.so when it comes to eye makeup I can't take risk and thats one of the reason I dont wear and buy alot of eye makeup:( so I bought 4 eyeshadows just to see if it works fine..and it did:)  to my surprise non of the four single eyeshadows irritated my eyes.

left to right MUA shade 3,7,12 and 9
The four single eyeshadow I got are shade No.3,9,7 and 12 and all of these are pearl finish, MUA also have matte finish eye shadows in singles.All of these colors are very smooth,easy to blend,super pigmented.they are not as frosty and metallic as they look in the swatches but they are shimmery,each eyeshadow contain 2 grams of product which is alot for just 1 pound (Rs.200),I dont use an eye primer with them because they don't  crease and are very pigmented. 

MUA  Eyeshadow 9 (pearl) This one is the most loved and most worn out of all four colors...its a gorgeous bright purple with magenta hues,very smooth and pigmented.

MUA Eyeshadow 12 (pearl) Most people describe it as a dupe of Mac's club...Mac's club is more brownish and taupe ish (duo chrome). MUA shade 12 is a very deep brown with taupish and reddish background.

MUA Eyeshadow 7 (pearl): Its a frosty smokey deep green and it has gold shimmer in it.

MUA Eyeshadow 3 (pearl) A very deep gun metal silver and it has silver shimmer.
