I talked about the MeMeMe primer last week which I really really loved, and when I was sent the primer, I was also sent a few bits from their cosmetics line to try out. Having only tried a couple of things in the past it was nice to be given the opportunity to try some more bits. I’m a terrible make up snob and I really don’t look at high street brands as much as I ought to if I’m brutally honest with a few exceptions (hello Rimmel Hide the Blemish). I was sent the Blush Me! Pink blusher and the Sultry Eyes Eye Inspire Classic Trio.
I was especially keen to try out the Blush Me Pink blusher.
It’s a mid pink in the pan, but it looks bright too if that makes any sense. It also looks shimmery. So in short it’s a little daunting. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your point of view), its actually much softer than it looks. As you’ll see from the swatch pictures at the bottom of the post it’s actually a very soft pink with shimmer, but the shimmer is very fine indeed so it’s not too disco ball. It’s actually very nice when you want only a subtle touch of colour and a little bit of glow. It’s really nice. This retails at £8.50 but is currently on the website at an extremely reasonable £6.50.
I was also sent the Eye Inspire Classic Trio in Sultry Eyes.
This eyeshadow trio is slightly less warm than in my photograph. It’s a nice trio, neutral colours. I found they performed extremely well. With the colours being easy to apply and blend and they wore well on me, lasting all day. I’ve been looking at the other colour ways available and there are some really great trios, I’m particularly loving the look of the Candy Eyes Trio featuring a mint, lilac and pink. The one I’ve got is nice enough though, I’ll show you the swatches below along with the blusher. Again, this is a really reasonably priced product, costing £5.50 normally but on special offer at £4.50 on the website at the time of writing.
I’ve used the shadows here, with the dark used as a liner.
And both on. I found using the two products gave me a really natural look, soft and subtle and actually really rather nice for every day. I’m sorry you can’t see the blusher too well in these, it’s very subtle!
I’ve got a few more bits to try out and review for you, but overall I’m really impressed with what I’ve tried so far, the primer is fabulous and so are these two bits. I know there are some high street brands that I’ve tried that have done nothing to change my my snobbiness, but MeMeMe might just be the brand to convince me that not everything I buy needs to cost the earth!
