MeMeMe Cosmetics: Soft Rose Collection Review*

Valentines Day, a day in which couples all over the world make a special effort for the love in their life. For me, Valentine's day is just an excuse to get dressed up and go out for a nice meal, and this year is no different even with the new addition to our family. 

I was asked to review the Soft Rose Collection box by MeMeMe Cosmetics as a Valentines Day treat. So last week, before Valentines Day when I wasn't doing much during the day I tried out the collection so I could see what the products looked like. 

Contents: Shimmer Stack in Pink, Light Me Up Lip Gloss in Illuminate, Beat the blues illuminator in Pearl Pink, Quad eye shadow in Opulent Eyes, Nail polish in Ambitious 

I used everything apart from the illuminator, to be honest I thought it was a gloss coat to put over nail varnish. Here's how I used the products:

Step 1: Applied usual foundation 
Step 2: MeMeMe shimmer stack on cheekbonesI really like the shimmer stack, it was really easy to use, just swipe your usual blusher brush over the pad and apply to your cheeks. It gives the effect of contouring I thought which is great. I will definitely be using it again.
Step 3: MeMeMe eyeshadowThe eye shadow has 4 shades to choose from depending on what look you're going for, to be honest I don't use a lot of eyeshadows if I do then its usually a very neutral colour. When I used the MeMeMe eyshadow I tried to stick to the most neutral but kept getting the dark shade on my brush aswell because the powders are set together. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be using this eye shadow again unless I become a bit more confident in wearing darker shades.
Step 4: Applied usual eyeliner and mascara 
Step 5: MeMeMe 'Light Me Up' Lip Gloss - I absoloutely loved the lip gloss! I've never owned a lip gloss which lights up, so handy when your on a night out because it has that handy light for easy application. Even though I loved the lip gloss I personally would have chosen a more pink/red tone. When I went out on Valentines night I wore my own lip gloss because I wanted more colour. 
Step 6: MeMeMe nail polish in Ambitious - When I saw that the nail polish was in a nude colour I thought straightaway that I wouldn't be using it, all of the nail polishes I own are all red, pinks and blues. But when I applied the nail varnish I actually really liked it and I was surprised at how quickly it dried and didn't smudge when I had to change Joey's nappy only a couple of minutes after application. Even though I wasn't sure about the colour at first I actually quite like how understated it is. 
I'm really happy with this collection, if i'm honest I hadn't heard of the brand at all and was worried that the products wouldn't be that great but i'm pleasantly surprised. If you're looking for a lovely gift to give that special lady in your life then this is it. The shades are mostly neutral so will complement most skin tones. The Soft Rose Collection is £27.50 (at the time of this post) and is available online at MeMeMe Cosmetics
