BEAUTY | MeMeMe Cosmetics Soft Rose Collection Review


My first thoughts when I opened this gorgeous box of goodies was 'Oooh, so pretty...but so pink. Hm.' Now don't get me wrong, pink is my favourite colour but I rarely put it on my face, not even blush. But it's actually a lot more subtle and wearable than I'd thought! Here's the finished look:

Please excuse my ratty hair!

I used the two browny/bronzey shades (definitely a proper description ok?) from the Baked Quad Eyeshadow in Opulent Eyes, the shades are gorgeous and a little shimmery, which I always prefer over matte shadows. I applied these dry and they were really pigmented, I'd love to try them wet next time for a more dramatic look. I've seen the Beat The Blues Skin Illuminator in Soft Pink in lots of 'favourites' posts and I can see why people love it...it adds just the right amount of prettiness to cheekbones and I dotted a little down my nose too. The Light Me Up Lipgloss in Illuminate is a sweet shade but not really something I'd wear in the daytime as it's quite shimmery and a little glittery. Super pretty for a night time look though! 

Then we have the Shimmer Stack in Pink, which I think is so good it deserves a paragraph of it's own haha. It does look quite intimidating in the pan, especially for a pale girl like me, but it's much more subtle once applied. This is a highlighter but being as ghostie-faced as I am I used it as a blusher and IT IS LOVE. It's just the right shade for me and not too glittery, it highlights just the right amount to give a really flattering glow. From now on it's going to be a staple in my make up routine, I couldn't be without it!

It also comes with a gorgeous nail shade, it's the kind of muted colour that I love.



All in all it's a lovely little set, I think it'd make a lovely gift. I'm looking forward to trying out the pink and purple shades in the Quad, I've been experimenting a lot more with make up lately and I've been loving it...a big thing for a girl who goes bare-faced most days! Would you be interested in seeing a bit more beauty on the blog?

What do you think of this collection? Have you tried anything from MeMeMe Cosmetics before?

  13. I really like the nail polish color. visible but still very chic and soft. ooo i feel the same with you about pink as a shade for the face. I love how it looks on others but always hesitate for myself. the eyeshadow on you looks gorgeouuuuuuus! I think those shades suit you really well :)

  16. I've never tried this brand before, but they pretty much sold me with that nail polish. Such a pretty neutral hue.

  34. Such a gorgeous review Josie! This collection is divine and you showcase it to perfection ;)
    Fab that it's everyday enough to rock for a casual look, yet out there enough to switch things up a little with a nice vibe of colours. Really adore the Shimmer Stack, how cute is that packaging? The colours really pack a punch too, they're made for S/S! And was just thinking how "you" the nail polish shade was when you said so yourself haha.


    And YES TO BEAUTY! Beauty + your wonderful way with words = winner <3
