MUA {Palette & Lip Stick}

I was recently given an MUA (Make Up Academy) Palette and Lip Stick by my friend. I have never used the brand before but I have seen it floating around in shops and when it was given to me I was really excited to try the brand out so here are my first impressions, enjoy!

Lip Stick:Shade 16, Nectar I was given this Lip Stick in the shade 16, Nectar. The packaging is sleek and I love the fact that you can see the colour on the bottom.

The Nail Polish: Penguin Chic. The nail polishes are also available in a wide range of colours and Penguin Chic is a colour which seems to go with everything. It's a grey colour with purple and brown undertones and I think it would look great on most skin tones. Penguin chic is a colour for all year round, and I think it's a great first nail polish for that re…
