Make MeMeMe a Bronzed Goddess!

I think I speak for many others when I say Spring can't come any sooner. Enough of this miserable, cold weather and pasty pale skin, bring on the warmer climate and a bit more colour to my complexion! There is definitely something about a subtle tan that makes me feel healthier, happier and generally more confident in myself. The Summer seems a long way off at the moment and since I am unable to achieve a natural tan until then, there a few ways of cheating a sun kissed glow!


As part of their gift set range, MeMeMe Cosmetics put together a box of treats including some of their best selling products such as the Goddess Eyes quad eye shadow palette and high gloss nail polish. The Goddess Collection makeup set also contains a Bronzing Shimmer Stack, Sunbeam Beat the Blues Skin Illuminator, Light Me Up Lip Gloss and step-by-step instruction guide.




I was most excited about the Bronzing Shimmer Stack mainly because it is very similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks (something that I have always wanted!). The compact contains 5 different powders, which can be swirled together and applied to areas of the face where the sun would naturally hit, or used individually as eye shadows.



I've seen an awful lot of comparisons between the Benefit liquid highlighters and the MeMeMe versions, and the majority of the time, MeMeMe seems to win. For half the price and stronger pigmentation, you can't go wrong. The packaging is also very similar to Benefits, with a glass bottle and nail varnish like applicator. This skin illuminator can be used to highlight certain parts of the face, such as the cheekbone and brow bone, or alternatively mixed in with a foundation to give a 'dewy' finish.



The baked eye shadow quad is right up my street, all four colours are what I'd usually reach for on a daily basis, cream to highlight the tear duct, gold over the lid, copper through the crease and bronze smudged along the upper and lower lash line. They can either be applied wet or dry, either way the colour is intense.



The lip gloss packaging is very comparable to the New CID lip glosses, featuring a mirror on the tube and 2 LED lights inside the lid, so when the applicator is unscrewed, the lights beam directly onto the lips, ensuring precise application even in the dark! The shade is 'Captivate', it's a little too gold and shimmery for my liking, saying that, I do like the minty taste it has!



I won't lie, the nail polish colour isn't something I'd necessarily go for, however, it applies extremely easily and dries quickly with a high gloss finish.






Overall, I believe this would be great to give as a gift, to any age range. There are plenty of other sets available, including 'Create The Look' packs, Nail Box Collections and their Best Seller Bundles, not to mention the huge selection of products that can be purchased individually. The Goddess Makeup Collection is currently on sale for £19.99 and can be purchased HERE!

    1. It does look really pretty once it's transferred onto the skin! The polish reminds me of the Barry M Foil Effect's :-) xx
