Over the coming weeks I'm going to share my must have picks from all the well known
cosmetic brands you will find on most British High Streets.
I decided to kick things off with MUA (Make-Up Academy) a brand that just keeps getting better
and is perhaps the one of the most affordable lines available on the UK highstreet
with the regular line consisting of products all priced at £1!
There is also the Pro line which is a little more expensive but with nothing over £4 
I think we can all agree it is kind to the pockets!

So my five picks:

Pro Palette £4 - link
Out of all the palettes my personal favourite is Heaven and Earth.
Pretty much a budget version of Urban Decay's Naked palette 
only this palette consists of shimmer/frost shades in a range of browns, taupe 
and highlight shades that will satisfy any neutral eye lover.
The pigment does vary from shade to shade but overall is decent
and a great set of eyeshadows to keep stashed in your make-up bag for every day wear.
If neutrals aren't your thing there's is a good range of other palettes from pastel's to bold bright's
available and again they cost just £4!

BB Cream £4 - link
Unlike some British spin off's of the Asian phenomena that is BB Creams
this is actually very thick and offers high coverage with a built in primer.
Okay it doesn't contain an SPF but you can add that yourself.
This wears best when set with a powder and I do feel the shades run slightly light.
I prefer to apply this with my fingers as I felt it gave the best results.

3-in-1 Contour Pen - link 
I'm a sucker for any product that offers multi-purpose usage
and this is exactly what this product does.
You can use it in various ways to line your eyes - thick to fine
and it can also be used as an all over wash of colour.

Lipstick £1 - link
All in there is 16 shades of lipstick to chose from each have a little pot of lipstick at the end of 
the tube too so you get plenty of product for your £1.
My personal favourite shade is Nectar - a bright peach coral.
I have compared this to Mac Ever Hip in the past - link
and stand by my claim that it is a really good dupe for the popular and now extinct shade.
If you lovely peachy coral shades this will be the best £1 you ever spend!

MUA Single Eyeshadows £1 - link
Okay some of the matte shades are a little chalky
and if you have butter fingers and drop products more often than not then you may not enjoy
the silky super soft formula but generally speaking the pigmentation is great
and they come in a great range of shades some of which dupe famous brands!
