MeMeMe - 'Create the Look' Gift Set + EOTD!

MeMeMe is a drugstore brand here in the UK and have been known for their products since their re-vamp a few months back. Remember their Benefit inspired blushers? They were quite huge amongst bloggers.

Now they have come up with some gift sets to compliment the festive season. I really liked this one as it almost has everything one would need to create an eye look for an occasion. Unlike gift sets where you get 4 lip glosses or a tonne of mascaras, this is what I personally prefer.

I have the Create the Look Pack in Fire Eyes (£15) which comes with an Eyeshadow Quad, a brown Eye Pencil, a fibre tip black Liner and a Mascara. What else would one need eh?

It comes all very beautifully wrapped in a gift bag so you would not have to worry about presentation at all. 

The Eyeshadow Quad reminds of the ones MAC introduced a few collections back. The colours are really pretty and decently pigmented. They are on the sheer side though with all of them being slightly reflective, however the rustic gold and the purple are more pigmented than the rest.

It is a bit difficult not getting the colours mixed up with each other though. I like to use a stiff dense brush to apply these to get the maximum impact. In my opinion the colours compliment each other pretty well.

The pack also comes along with two liners. The eye pencil in clay is a brown with the slightest of brown shimmer in it. It is quite soft so very easy to line and then smudge out for that smoked out effect. Using a brown eye pencil to create this effect is much more effective than using black.

The fibre tip precision eye definer is a carbon black liner pen and the darkest black that I have used till date. It even beats the Le Metier De Beaute one that I talked about previously. These two liner pens are a must have!

The mascara is not the most impressive in this package besides its super chick packaging which I am in love with. It's supposed to give you a false lash effect and to an extent it even does but more like you're wearing a very light layer of natural looking lashes, nothing major.

It however provides clump free, clean and defined lashes with a tiny bit of volume and length. Not bad at all as a part of the set but I would not purchase this on its own.

The pack comes with a guide to create a look with the eye shadow quad which I faintly tried to mimic however did not even reach closer to the effect achieved in the guide.

Yet a picture to show your how it looks like. Besides the colours being bright, they are so sheer and reflective that even if you use them all together in a look (like I have done below) it wont look over the top. I am also wearing both the eye-liners and the mascara below.

Available till 22nd December on the MeMeMe website. It would make a wonderful present for any make-up addict!
