With so many makeup brands appearing on the block recently, I was quite excited when the information about MeMeMe cosmetics landed in my email inbox, and when I was offered the chance to try some of their products I thought I’d take one for the team 😉
I was sent a few goodies with perfect summer colours and so I couldn’t wait to get stuck in. Below I’ve included a short tutorial on a summer look, swatches and my thoughts on the bits I tried!
Products & Swatches
Ocean Eyes Quad.
First on the table is the ocean eyes quad, four mermaidesque shades that will leave you feeling pool ready in one sweep. The colours are highly pigmented and I love their shimmer. They blend beautifully and I love that you can use them wet or dry, whilst I probably wouldn’t have picked these colours off up the shelf, they really go with my bluey green eyes and I’ll definitely be using them more often. The palette is available for £6.50.
Conceal & Perfect, Coral Blossom and Boho Balm.
Boho Balm – Coral Taupe – This pretty cheek and lip tint can be used combined or you can wear each colour alone. My favourite is the coral, which is the perfect match for my pale skin. The texture is creamy and soft and lasts for about an hour/2 hours. Available for £6.50.
Cheek & Lip tint – Coral Blossom – the packaging on this one is a strange one for me, it looks like a nail varnish, kind of feels like a nail varnish, but it gives a really pretty flush of colour and smooths nicely onto the skin. Available for £5.50.
Conceal & Perfect – Buff – this is my favourite product of the lot! At first sight I thought the shade would be too dark for my pale skin, but once blended it’s perfection. The idea that it’s a kit really appeals to me, a concealer and setting powder in one, it makes this the perfect travel companion and I’ll definitely be packing it in my holiday suitcase. Available for £6.99.
The Shimmer Stack
A multi tonal bronzer and highlighter in one? I can’t think of anything better and this really delivers. I’ve been using this over a contoured look and it really adds a beautiful flush of colour and leaves me looking sun kissed, someone even asked me if I’d been tanning the other day as I had a lovely glow, and I hadnt even touched the bottle, can’t say fairer than that. Available for £9.99.
MeMeMe also included the gorgeous black makeup bag which is available for £9.99, it’s big enough to fit every day essentials and more.
Ocean Eyes Tutorial
Start by applying the conceal & perfect kit under your eyes and on any blemishes on the skin, apply a small blob of the coral blossom cheek & lip tint onto each cheek. Next sweep a large bronzing brush across the shimmer stack and use a contour motion around your cheek bones and up towards the outer sections of your forehead. Blend the lightest colour of the quad across your lid and blend the deeper colours into the crease. Finish the look off with a swipe of boho balm across your lips and you’re good to go.
My Overall Thoughts
I really like this collection from MeMeMe Cosmetics and I’m glad I got to try it out. I feel like this is the perfect brand for gifts and also for a little payday treat. The prices are reasonable and all of the products are nice textures, highly pigmented and really good value for money.
MeMeMe cosmetics will be launching in House of Fraser this August, so ladies (and gents), get it whilst it’s hot!
Until Next Time
