Me Me Me Event & Swatches!

The Me Me Me makeup stand in Superdrug always always has my attention when I go shopping – the packaging of the products are beautiful, the colour variety available is pretty impressive and everything is of really high quality. 

The whole range has recently been revamped with the main inspiration being the ancient Greeks, the elegant Renaissance period and of Bohemian free spirit and love.  I myself have a slight obsession and interest in Greek gods and goddesses as well as Bohemian ‘wander lust’ so I feel a lotta love and admiration for this brand.

These products above have been staples in my makeup bag throughout August & September.

Blush me! box in Coral – My new favourite blusher!  This adds such a beautiful coral flush on my cheeks which I adore and you can build up the blusher for more pigmentation (although not too much or you’ll look like a dolly!).  I love the idea of this packaging (which is very similar to benefit’s blushers) – a box with a mirror in the lid, as well as a blusher brush inside, although it is frumpy and takes up too much room in my daily makeup bag.  That won’t stop me loving the blush though.

Shimmer Stack – This bronzer contains such a great bronzey colour combination that I’ve been using it more as an eyeshadow palette rather than a bronzer. The white works perfectly as a highlighter and the darker shades are perfect for contouring cheek bones or the crease of your eye.  The packaging is fab and there is a massive mirror in the lid for top ups through out the day.

Satin Lip Creme in Chara (Tuscan Red) – I always eye this lippie up in Superdrug and I finally got my hands on it – its a gorgeous orange based red which almost has a frosty finish.  I hate frosted lipsticks (reminds me of those cheap lip stick gift sets I got when I was 10) but this is really pretty and subtle.  This lipstick also makes my teeth look super white and is very wearable.

Satin Lip Cream in Aphrodite (Ruby Rich) – The photographs below really don’t do this lipstick much justice.  In real life this is a stunning deep Red, its quite vampy and very elegant.  This makes my blonde hair really stand out and makes my skin look pale which I like.

What I think
I love the quality, pigmentation and packaging of the Me Me Me range and I can see these products lasting me a very long time.  Prices are around £8.50 for the lipstick and blusher and £9.99 for the bronzer.

This has to be one of the most magical events that I have ever been to – it was complete with an ice sculpture, lit candles everywhere, incredible cocktails, a manicure bar and none other than a harpist!! 

To see all the makeup that Me Me Me has to offer all together was fab, they have such a wide variety of products and a massive array of colourful products to choose from that I think there’s something for everyone in the range.

Nail polishes, eye quads, lip glosses, lipsticks, blushers and highlighters…

Foundations, concealers, blushers, bronzers and nail polish swatches!

Products I have my eye on:
4 
Goddess Rocks
– Instead of tiny bronzing balls that get stuck in your brush, Me Me Me have created Goddess Rocks, which are literally rocks of golden bronzes and highlighters.  You can either swirl your brush around the rocks for a bronzer, or use the rocks individually as eye shadows – a really fab idea!
Light Me Up Lip Glosses – Lip glosses in a variety of beautiful colours, which have a mirror on the side and light up when you apply.  Perfect for when you’re on the go.

3 
Gift Sets – Me Me Me have created a variety of gift sets and boxes which are affordable and filled with great products.  All gifts retail at £15 so I’ll be getting my sister and myself one this Christmas!

What are you favourite Me Me Me products?

  6. Ooooooh... I wish we had MMM here in the States! I think the rocks would be pretty awesome, but I'm a complete sucker for red lipsticks. I would have to make them all mine.

  8. I've got quite a bit of the Mememe range. Never tried the lippies though. Love both of those reds. Hope they've improved the nail varnish as well. Always had great colours with no lasting power. I'm so jealous you got to go.

  11. I got the turquoise and oyster cream eyeshadows and they are lovely. The nail varnishes are great too, so thick and pigmented that you only need one coat. My mistake was the Persian pink lipstick, it looked terrible on me. Shame because the lipstick itself was silky and moistorising but the colour wasn't right
