Massive MUA Haul!

As most of you may know, MUA (MakeUp Academy) was celebrating their milestone of reaching 25,000 likes on their Facebook page by having a 25% off everything as well as free international shipping. I have been coveting MUA products for the longest time and I was constantly refreshing their Facebook page seeing if they had reached 25,000 likes - once they finally reached 25K, I was extremely excited to get started on shopping! 

As you can tell from the photo above, I did go a little overboard with the products, but I just couldn't help myself! You simply cannot go past such a great deal like this!

Also, I just want to let you lovelies know that I will not be reviewing any of these items in this particular post, as I will be doing a series of MUA product reviews in the next couple of posts. Just because I think it's a bit too much to take in and read in one whole giant post. Before, I start rambling on now, I shall show you what purchased from their website:

 4 eyeshadow palettes - Heaven & Earth, Undressed, Glamour Nights, Glamour Days, Pretty Pastels and Poptastic. 

 Heaven & Earth Palette
"A beautiful collection of eyeshadows that will enhance your eyes to give you the perfect neutral look"
 Poptastic Palette

 Undressed Palette
"MUA Pro's fantastic 12 shade palette ranging from pretty nudes to smouldering metallics"

Glamour Days Palette

 (L-R) 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 12 & 16
"With just one swipe you'll have fantastic colour pay off resulting in gorgeous lips!"

4 Glitter eyeliners - Shade 4, 5, 7 & 8

(T-B) Lip Liners: Pink Me Up, Softly Lined
"With a creamy and strong payoff, you will love them!"
Eyeliner: Lovely Lilac, Rich Brown, Turquoise, Jet Black  & Forrest Green
"Intense Eye Liner Pencil which produces a precise and well defined line for accentuating the eyes with an intense colour finish."

And finally, a pressed powder and matte foundation - Pressed Powder in shade 3 & Matte Foundation in shade 2 Honeycomb. 

(Left) Pressed powder in shade 3
"Not only does it create a matte, perfect finish, 
it helps smooth skin and set foundation"
(Right) Matte Foundation in shade 2 Honeycomb
"Look and feel gorgeous by simply popping a little bit of the Matte 
Foundation on the back of your hand and applying with a foundation brush, 
smoothing it over your skin"

Surprisingly, everything I purchased was around $60AUD when I converted it back - that is pretty amazing considering the prices of other cosmetics available in Australia. I'm tremendously happy with my purchase, and I cannot wait for MUA to have another amazing promotion so I can expand my MUA collection! 

Did you lovelies take advantage of the promotion? Have you tried MUA products before? Let me know :)
