Here's a few things I have picked up for myself over the last few weeks. I have been doing quite a lot of shopping recently but because a lot of my purchases are for Christmas gifts I can't post them here.
I hope you enjoy this haul and perhaps get some inspiration for your own Christmas shopping or wishlist.
1. MeMeMe Cosmetics Pink Best Seller Bundle - I hadn't even heard of MeMeMe cosmetics until my friend Glossy (www.beautifullyglossy.blogspot.com) reviewed one of their products on her Blog. I decided I needed to investigate the brand further. Upon browsing their website (www.mememecosmetics.com.au) I couldn't believe how similar their products were to Benefit products but for just a fraction of the price of Benefit. Being a big Benefit fan I was concerned about the quality of MeMeMe products but decided to go ahead and make an order anyway to see for myself.
I decided to purchase the Pink Best Seller Bundle for $39.95 and their Beat The Blues Skin Illuminator in Sunbeam for $13.95.
My order from MeMeMe was dispatched the very next day after I placed it and reached me in just four days. Best of all with all purchases over $40 postage is free.
Now to my thoughts on the actual products. The Pink Best Seller Bundle contained a Light Me Up Lip Gloss in the shade Illuminate, Blush Me Pink Blush and a Nail Polish in shade 78 Ambitious. I also purchased the Skin Illuminator in Beat The Blues Sunbeam.
The Light Me Up Lip Gloss in Illuminate is a beautiful shimmering baby pink shade. It is the perfect dupe for M.A.C's Dazzleglass in Baby Sparks. It has a minty flavour and comes with a handy mirror on the side. When removing the doe foot wand from the gloss two lights come on making the gloss packaging literally light up. I think Modelco may have made gloss with a similar concept in the past. The best thing about the gloss to me is that is is not at all sticky. I think the gloss is gorgeous and I will get a lot of use out of it.
Blush Me Blush in Pink is absolutely gorgeous. It is actually a lot brighter than it appears in the pictures. It reminds me a lot of M.A.C's Pink Swoon. The MeMeMe blush in Pink does have a small amount of shimmer in it. The blush packaging is identical to the packaging of Benefit's Powder Boxes. It even has the same little plastic insert and a very similar brush as the Benefit powders do. One difference with the MeMeMe boxes is that there is a mirror in the lids of the boxes which is a genius idea. The Blush itself is highly pigmented and blends beautifully. I am so impressed with the quality of the product. The Blush Me Blushers come in Bronze, Coral, Pink and Rouge and are a steal at just $21.95 here in Australia as opposed to the Benefit Box Of Powders Priced at $51. Alternatively you can purchase the bundles for $39.95.
The Long Lasting Gloss Nail Polish in Shade 78 Ambitious is a very pale pink. Only one coat of this polish will give you a glossy opaque finish. I have only had it on for 24 hours but so far there is no chipping.
Beat The Blues Skin Illuminator in Sunbeam is a perfect dupe for Benefit's High Beam. It is a beautiful pale pink colour which has a cool silvery tone to it. It is perfect for highlighting or mixing with foundation for a dewy luminous finish. Priced at $13.95 it represents excellent value for money. I absolutely love this product and have decided to order the other cheek and lip tints and the other Skin Illuminator shade available in Moonbeam.
I think the Best Seller Bundles would make a beautiful Christmas or Birthday gift idea for any makeup junkies in your life. They come beautifully packaged in a box and there are four colour variations to choose from. The quality of the products is great and the value for money is excellent. Where else are you going to find 3 great quality makeup products for under $40. Alternatively you can purchase individual products which would also make great gifts. MeMeMe also include a gorgeous little packet of lollies, with their company name on them, tied with a black bow in each order. I would be stoked to find anything from MeMeMe under my tree this Christmas.
