Trying Out Made By Mitchell Makeup - Review + Swatches

 I first came across Mmmmitchell a good few years ago now when I went to a Jeffree Star Masterclass (I do not support Jeffree Star anymore) and Mitchell was creating a makeup look on Jeffree. He was a northern lad, who was fun and bright and so I was thrilled when he released a makeup collection. Today's post is all about some of the products I have tried from the Made By Mitchell range...

I will begin with one of Mitchell's most sought-after products, the Made By Mitchell Blursh, a liquid to cream blusher which retails at £14.00 for 6ml. There are around ten shades available and it was so hard to choose as they all look gorgeous, but I opted for Peach Sugar, a pink coral shade and Sweet Cheeks, a light Barbie pink. They come in frosted plastic tubes with a sponge applicator. The formula is a liquid to powder, so it can be layered over the top of or underneath other liquid or cream products without budging and they are super pigmented so a little goes a long way. I really enjoy using the Blursh as they are so quick and easy to use and look flawless on the skin - you could even use them on the eyelids and lips for a monochromatic look! I can see what the hype is all about with these and I definitely want to pick up some more shades! You also get a lot of product and as I mentioned, you only need a tiny amount, so you can get a lot of use from these.

Following on from Blursh, you can also get the Made By Mitchell Blursh Bronzed, a liquid to cream bronzer. These retail at £16.00 for 6ml and come in exactly the same packaging as the Blursh. There are eight shades to choose from and I opted for the lightest, Hollo There, as I have fair to light skin, and the colour works really well for me. The component and applicator is exactly the same as Blursh as is the formula, so I don't want to repeat myself too much, but it I do like that it works well with other liquid, cream or powder products. Over the past year I have really gotten into cream and liquid bronzers and contour products, and I haven't stopped using this since I first tried it, so I would highly recommend. They are super easy to use - simply use the applicator and dot a few splodges where you would apply bronzer, and then blend with a blush or beauty sponge for a seamless finish.

One top tip I would highly recommend is following Made By Mitchell on TikTok as they are always doing amazing offers! I got the Made By Mitchell Mini Mitchell Volume 1 Palette for just £5.00 on there with free delivery. The original price is £27.50, so the value is incredible and it comes with a neoprene Mitchell-branded pouch to keep it in! The Eyeshadow Palette is packaging in Mitchell's signature lime green, with a mirror on the inside of the lid and nine good-sized pans. You get a mixture of shimmers and mattes in here, with some really bright shades, some deeper shades and even a transition shade, which you don't always find in brightly coloured palettes, so that is appreciated. I was blown away by the pigmentation in this palette - the mattes are creamy and the shimmers are buttery soft, with colour payoff being second to none. I don't know if I would have paid £27.50 for this palette, just because it isn't something I personally would use every day, but the quality is definitely there and I am really glad to have this in my collection.

As Mitchell is a makeup artist, he knows a thing or two about brushes, so whilst I would have liked to have bought every brush, I had to keep it to two. The two makeup brushes I chose are the MF1 Cheek Stippler Brush (£10.00) and the ME2 Tiny Eye Definer (£10.00). I have hooded eyelids and so I love using small brushes to apply my eyeshadow with, unfortunately I didn't love this brush as the bristles are pretty sparse and they sort of go outwards so you can't do precise work with it. However, I do love the Cheek Stippler Brush, as it is the perfect density to use with the Blursh products, which was why I ordered it. Both brushes are lime green in colour - which I adore as I just love anything colourful. The bristles on the Cheek Stippler Brush are super soft and don't drag on the skin, so I am hoping my Eye Definer Brush is just a one off and I would love to try some of the other brushes to see if they are as good as the Cheek Stippler Brush.

All the Loves,
