MakeUp Artist haul! [Pic heavy!!]

Hello Biuties!!
As I said this morning getting some MUA products was on my to do list today and here's what I got.
Everything is really £1! I was skeptical at first but the eyeshadows kind of stole my heart...
[Click the pictures to have a better look!]
I got 10 items, wanted to get at least one product of each type but the blushes, face powders & glittery eyeliners weren't really interesting to me.
These are really beautiful! Very pretty colors specially the dark green (Shade 14) which is my absolute favorite. I don't remember how many shades there are but I would guess around 20. The colors are also quite dark (though there are a few brights (4-5).
Unfortunately when I got to my superdrug some eyeshadow weren't available so if you want to get a hold of the browns/greys and blacks get there early! A lot of the eyeshadows have a beautiful pearl finish but there are also some matte colors as well which I didn't find that pigmented to be honest and they were quite chalky too.
Overall I quite like them even if I find them a bit crumbly. They are definitely a good value for money.
This lipgloss reminded me soo much of the NARS orgasm illuminator that I had to pick it up. It has very beautiful gold sparkles however it looks better in the tube than on!
The lipstick is sooo beautiful, the consistency reminds me a lot of NYX lipsticks and for £1 I might go and pick up another one!
The red lipstick is ok, nothing special but it does smell really good!
Nothing much to say about the eyeliner, so far it looks a bit too liquid so I'll have to apply it to test it. What I can say about it is that it stains like mad! I swatched it and as soon as I took a picture wiped it off and now I have this blue mysterious line on the back of hand impossible to remove...
The nail varnish is blah, it streaks like crazy! You need 3-4 coats for it to be even.. too much effort for me and it takes ages to dry! I just bought it to test it but yeah I won't be buying any other shade form the brand.
I really really like this eye dust, its well pigmented and very fine. I think there are 6-8 shades available, again on the darker side but I still think for £1 they are good.
Overall I think that this line is worth investigating. I'm happy with what I bought specially with the eyeshadows and the lipstick.
I will definitely go and get some for and for £1 you can't really go wrong!
Keep in my that this is just my first impression review, it might change as I play more with everything!
If you can go and check out the brand at superdrugs I'm sure you'll leave with at least something!
Stay biutiful!
