Olympic Appeal – Going For Gold Palette MUA

The MUA palettes are amazing but I’ll tell you more of why once I review them fully. For my Olympic look I used their Going For Gold Palette, it features many different hues of Bronze, Silver and Gold some been quite pale, some bright and some shimmery. I picked the ones I thought would work the best and to be honest I’d happily wear this look on a night out pity I’m not attending the London Olympics for real I’m sure I could cheer on or maybe work behind the scenes. Anyway here is what I used:


  • Benefit The Pore-Fessional
  • Me Me Me Cosmetics – Flawless Finish Tinted Moisturiser SP15 – Porcelain Pure
  • M.A.C Select Moisturecover – NW15
  • MUA Mosaic Blusher – English Rose



  • Sleek Make up – I-DIVINE Primer Palette – Silver Lining and Money Honey
  • MUA Going For Gold Palette
  • M.A.C Eye Shadow – Vanilla
  • Benefit Eyeliner – Onyx
  • Loreal Superliner – Black
  • Me Me Me Cosmetics – Fat Cat Mascara



  • M.A.C Lip Pencil – Cherry
  • M.A.C Cremesheen Lipstick – Brave Red
  • M.A.C Dazzleglass – Amorous


Illamasqua’s New Time Capsule Collection – Naked Strangers


[blockquote_right]Naked Strangers captures inner glow and depths. The deeply and darkly alluring exists alongside ethereal shimmering brilliance.[/blockquote_right]

After some investigation to find out more about this collection I can honestly say I am looking forward to this hitting the shops. It’s only a small collection been released for summer 2012 but the nudes, golds, shimmers and mattes are something to look forward to.  It’s a far cry from the bright colours in the spring Human Fundamentalism collection but its perfect minimal make up for summer with maximum impact.

[blockquote_right]Naked Strangers represents everything about borderlines…the human edge between romance and permissive intimacy…a step beyond control, a step past the edge and a collection of gilded moments upon the tip of sensation. Beautiful nudes with metallic edge set amongst eclectic textures.[/blockquote_right]
The collection is going to include two new lip glosses, one will be an intense lip gloss called ” Stranger ” which is platinum gold and the other a sheer lip gloss called ” Intimacy ” which is a nude pink brown.

Also on the way are two new powder blushers , once called ” Zygomatic” which is a naked pink brown and ” Naked Rose” which is a lovely pink shade.

And finally not to be missed and I’m surely going to get all three of these, brand new nail vanishes:

  • Monogamous – Creamy Flesh Pink
  • Faithful – Coppered Metal
  • Swingers – Platinum Gold


Naked Strangers will hit the website to registered users this Wednesday (23rd) and the whole collection will go nationwide on Thursday 31st May.
