Find-me-A-Gift Valentines Make Up Review

mememe make up review
This MeMeMe Costmetics Bronze Collection is part of the range of valentines gifts at this year and it currently costs just £12.99.

I tried out this palette of bronze make-up last weekend and was pretty impressed - I'd be happy to receive it as a valentine's surprise! The set comprises a bronze blusher, a chocolate brown nail varnish and a fabulous golden lip-gloss which, put together with a black mascara and a little bronze eyeshadow of my own, created a very grown-up, warm wintery look.

The nail varnish has a very thick, high-gloss consistency. I found it to be a very forgiving nail varnish, which is handy given that the applicator brush was poor and had bristles sticking out at angles. The blusher is really good though - it comes in a cute presentation box with a wide, thick brush and blends nicely on the skin.

The star of the MeMeMe Bronze Collection is the lip gloss. This isn't the first time that I've tried a MeMeMe lip gloss, I have another, bright pink one in my collection! MeMeMe lip glosses seem to last me all day without needing to be reapplied other than after meals. This gloss is a light bronze, almost golden colour and the best thing about it is that the lid of the lip gloss has three bright LEDs in the tube which illuminate when you take the lid off. I guess the idea is that it helps you reapply the gloss in the gloom of a night-club but I find the extra light really handy at any time. I also appreciate the small mirror on the outside of the tube that is 'just' about big enough for you to check that you have applied the gloss well.
