MUA Love Hearts Event..Friday, February 10, 2012
So on Wednesday evening I tootled down to London to attend the launch of MUA's newest offerings which are a collaboration with Love Hearts. First of all I met up with Anna, Laura and Yu for some cheeky cocktails and a giggle and gossip. We then made our way to The Piccadilly Institute which is just off Piccadilly Circus and went to mingle with some fellow beauty bloggers.
MUA are known for their inexpensive prices and have become very popular with some gems such as the Heaven and Earth palette reaching cult status. I was very excited to see the Love Hearts range being a massive fan of MUA and Love Hearts. The range consists of nail polishes which are just £2.00 and lip balms also priced at £2.00. All the colours are pastels/brights but there's something to suit everyone. I particularly loved the lip balms. They remind me of the Sleek Pout Paints in relation to size but these are of course a lot cheaper and have a nicer colour range in my opinion. They have a hint of a vanilla smell which is always a winner to me and are a great glossy balm which can be applied over lipstick or just on your lips. We were very lucky to be given a goody bag full of treats and I received three Love Hearts Lip Balms to try; Sweet Kiss ( a Flamingo baby pink) Sugar Lips ( baby pink) and Hot Lips (dark fuchsia pink) Sweet Kiss is my favourite and was the one to catch my eye at the event, it looks gorgeous applied over a nude lipstick.
Nail polishes are also part of the range, an assortment of pretty pastels which are perfect for Spring and also a very good price at £2.00. I received the colours U Rok (pastel purple) and U R Fab (raspberry pink) I swatched both colours and can confirm that with two coats are creamily opaque and brilliant value for £2.00. I'm currently wearing U Rok which is just the perfect pastel purple and a completely unique colour to any I own. I keep looking at my nails and thinking 'ooooh such a nice colour.' I will let you know how well they last so far so good though!
The event also showcased some new and upcoming products that MUA are launching, among them were Out There Plumping Lip Glosses, Glitter Nail Crackle Polishes, Contour Eye Pencils, BB Creams and False Lashes. I did receive some of these products in my goody bag so look out for reviews on them in the future.
It was a really lovely event, we were plied with fruity drinks in jam jars, ate lots of sweets and had a good old chinwag. I also managed to get a picture taken of some us (please ignore my pasty face!) I had a lovely time and events like these make me realise how lucky I am to be a beauty blogger! I would definitely recommend checking out the MUA Love Hearts range which will be in Superdrug's next week but is already online now (link) Thanks to the MUA team and Zoe for a brilliant event :)
