Famous Makeup Light Up Mirror + Wishlist

Famous Makeup are a brand that I'm not that familiar with, I haven't heard much about them at all. I remember when the brand was Famous by Sue Moxely, I bought an eyeshadow from the range that I really liked, I have no idea what happened to that eyeshadow though! It seems that they have since just turned into Famous Makeup. On first look it seems to be similar to brands such as LOOK Beauty & MUA. Famous actually sent me this mirror after seeing how much I loved MUA, I'm pretty sure all these brands are owned by the same people.

I always take a little mirror with me in my bag where ever I go so I welcomed this mirror into my bag with open arms! I'm not a fan of the design but a lot of people will, me and animal print just don't go. I'm willing to look past a design though. I've never owned a light up mirror so I was definitely looking forward to using it!

I find the light to be good for things like checking how your makeup looks in the dark or just adding an extra coat of mascara. However, if you are looking to apply your foundation or a full face of makeup using just this mirror and it's light then this isn't for you. The light of course changes how the colour of your face appears and I don't actually find the light to be that strong or powerful enough to apply a full face of makeup!

To me this mirror feels cheap as well as it is mainly made out of plastic, it just doesn't feel like a high quality product at all. It's price tag is £8 (it's currently half price) but, I would definitely not pay £8 for this!

I guess this mirror just wasn't for me! Whilst on the Famous Makeup website though I found myself having a browse and spotted some products I'd love to try so thought I'd make a little wishlist, I might treat myself to a few of the products in the future! I'm not going to pre-judge their makeup on the quality of their mirror!

    1. It does but it isn't great for when it is darker than say the early evening time xx

  2. Great post! I love the animal print but I can see where you're coming from with the light making it hard to apply something like foundation. Would you mind following my blog as I am now using Bloglovin, don't worry if not!



  3. Thanks, that was a really cool read! Choice
