I dabbled a few weeks ago with a purchase from MeMeMe cosmetics. Not a brand I would have normally gravitated to before, however I had heard of them as brand through receiving a nail polish from a beauty box subscription that I used to be signed up to.
I was invited by MeMeMe to learn more about their products and also offered a 20% discount code.
Being inquisitive by nature and as the price point on the items were well priced I decided to snap up a few items that I liked the look of.
Tangled Ivy Dew pot – I love this colour! The dew pot really gives a great colour pay off, with a smooth and creamy finish.
Fire Eyes Quad – I have mixed feelings about this quad. Whilst I love the colours as their so unlike any eye colours in my collection, I was a tad disappointed with the finish. Not as pigmented as I would have like, as a WoC I did find I had to apply lot of the light bronze shade to get the finish I wanted.
Oh I’m in love – and this lipstick colour gives me life! This colour is called Berry Crush (exhales) it is beautiful…..it has iridescent shades of blue within its formulation of Shea butter, which really helps to lift the colour. The lipstick provides a smooth, satin and glossy finish once applied.
I have given the Quad and Dew Pot a try in the picture below:
All products that I purchased above came to £16 including delivery…. Bargain!
MeMeMe were also at the FABB Event I attended, where they gave out some superb goody bags!
Here’s what I received:
I have not tried out all items yet, but I am steadily making my way though!
I have given the Enriched Moisturising Face Base* a few tries…
This product doubles up as a face cream and primer (base) for your makeup, and really does help with allowing makeup to adhere to the skin well, it also gave my skin a more smoother appearance. The smell of the product is very zesty, it contains scents of lemon, orange, lime and mandarin. The product is made up of Beta- Carotene, Shea and Vitamin A which the description says helps to “rejuvenate, nourish and hydrate the skin”. It has a non oily, smooth and mattifying feel you really don’t need a lot. This cream doesn’t claim to be all the way natural – which is what I try to look out for and use – however as it was given to me I shall probably use it more so on occasions, rather than everyday where I need a ‘stay put’ makeup face as it’s definitely good for helping makeup keep it’s lasting power.
I have given the Blush Me blusher* a little swatcher-roo, whilst it’s a very pretty colour, I did have to apply quite a bit for the colour payoff your seeing in the picture. On first impression this blusher may fair better on lighter skin tones than myself – however I stand corrected until I give it a real try.
Twilight Bliss Dew Pot* again a lovely product consistency, so far I have only swatched it. I can imagine this will look lovely on a dark smokey eye look to set a bit of a contrast.
Yes! I was so pleased to receive this colour – Ruby Red, as when I ordered the products mentioned above I was torn between this colour and Berry Crush. I really love the finish of these lipsticks – versatile enough that I can wear it with a super shiny finish or can opt to blot it to give a non drying matt effect lip. I wore this lip colour over the weekend and the lasting power was great, I didn’t need to reapply and still had a good 50% of colour left on my lips by the end of the evening.
Of all the products I would say the Berry Crush, Ruby Red lipsticks and the Tangled Ivy Dew Pot are my favourites!
