Autumn Beauty Trends with MUD

As soon as Autumn/ Winter draws in, like most, I steer towards the rich earthy, berry, warm tones on my face. These three make up items from MUD - Make-up Designory just scream Autumn to me.
MUD is quite a new brand to me, I wasn't that familiar with it. But I do love trying out new make-up, as you never know when you will find that hidden gem of a product.

At a first glance the lip pencil and lipstick resemble mac quite a bit with their sleek, simple, black and silver packaging.

The lip pencil I have here is in the shade 'Brick' and it is a lovely warm, red toned brown I'd say. The name brick really describes it well to be honest.
The pencil isn't as buttery as I like and I did feel it drag a bit on my lips, but I also find the MAC ones can do this too. I think I'm just to using the ultra smooth Huda Beauty ones and Kylie Cosmetics ones. I do think you can get a more precise line though as the nib is so fine. The colour is amazingly pigmented, I was really impressed actually.

This lip pencil is PERFECT paired with the MUD lipstick in the shade 'Havana'. The shade is completely gorgeous, a rich, red toned brown with a satin finish. The pigment again is fantastic, all you need is one swipe. This shade will be good for those of you who aren't quite brave enough for a full on vampy lip, but still want a pop of colour and still make a statement. I honestly think this colour would look amazing against any skin tone too.

The MUD lipstick applied smoothly and feels extremely comfortable on the lips. I usually opt for matte lips but a satin would be my next choice - More comfortable on the lips, just don't last quite as long.

To top off the look the MUD eyeshadow pan in the shade 'Galaxy' is a really nice warm toned shimmery brown which looks almost plum in some light, i own a lot of eyeshadow palettes, as you can probably guess with my make-up addiction, but i don't think i have one like this so it's quite unique.
The pigment is really good too, this looks lovely patted onto the centre of the lid. I think you can also create your own custom MUD palettes as I have seen on the PAM website (here) they sell loose pans which is always a good idea!

Overall I'm very impressed with this brand, unique colours, great pigment and lovely formulas. I would happily pay £15.50 for the lipstick but £14.95 for one single eyeshadow compact seems a little steep to me, that is really my only grumble about the brand.

You can purchase MUD from the Precious About Makeup (PAM) website HERE.
