MeMeMe... Yes Yes Yes!

As this is a new blog I thought I’d start by sharing a brand that is new to me that I recently stumbled upon.  Mememe cosmetics, yes it did seem familiar but I couldn’t picture any of their products or anything about them so I decided to have a nose around their website.
I was so SHOCKED!  How had I never seen this before?  My first impression was ‘this reminds me of benefit’ by the overall style of everything and as I started looking through products I couldn’t believe it, not did it only have the classiness and packaging like benefit... but it was a fraction of the price!

These are the lovelies that I purchased
I had to double check if this was an online brand or if you could get it in high street shops and that’s when I realised I had seen their products before but mememe must have had a recent makeover because nothing caught my eye as I looked on Superdrug’s site nothing looked the same as it did on the official mememe site... I presume it’s only the packaging they’ve changed not the actual products but I would order from the official website just to be on the safe side.

Anyway back to the review...
I thought I’d start small so only ordered 3 pieces, and the coral blush me! automatically become my everyday blush.. I love it!  The colour pigmentation is lovely and yes I know I keep saying it but to me it is a mixture of benefit’s CORAlista and sugarbomb blushers but cheaper!

The highlight beat the blues in Sunbeam I got as it looks like an exact dupe for yet again another benefit product high beam, and if applied correctly is amazing BUT I find that most of the time it just smudges my makeup and doesn’t leave a nice highlighted finish as I expected.

The long wear satin lip cream in china rose, a nice nude shade, firstly the colour was not what I expected it to look like, however I do like the colour and have the same in an ELF lipstick so it was a bit annoying that I already had it but at least I like it. This is not the most nourishing lipstick in the world but the colour does stay on your lips so I just apply some carmex before and viola your lips but better!

Mememe have recently started a monthly catalogue that offers good deals and discounts, so if you are a fan then remember to sign up!
