Naturally Nude by MeMeMe Gift Set

16 November 2012


There's no hiding now guys..Christmas is a-coming and there's nothing you can do about it! I'm a total Christmas obsessive so I've been blaring the Christmas tunes for a while now, and my Christmas shopping is well underway. Personally, I say all you Christmas scrooges need to join me and start shopping too! Today I have a review for a gift set which could potentially be a great Christmas gift for any girly in your family. The Naturally Nude gift set from MeMeMe comes inside a cute little bag makeup bag (not pictured), but the goods are definitely the makeup itself. You get one Blush Me blusher in 'Coral', one lipstick in 'China Rose', two Dew Pots in 'Coral Blossom' and 'Willow Whisper' and one nail polish in 'Ambitious'. Well that's a nice little set isn't it? As the name suggests, it's focused on nude colours, and we know that this is majorly up my street because I like products I can wear for not only work, but daytime and evening too. 





Firstly, I'd like to mention that MeMeMe seem to have stepped it up a notch with their packaging. It's all got a very classy but with a dash of 'minx' feel about it, and I love the frosty black touches to their design - first thumbs up from me! The blush in 'Coral' is much like their usual blushes in the Benefit-esque box package. If you're looking for coral, then this IS coral. It's a beautiful shade that can look a bit 'wooah' in the pan, but on the skin, it blends beautifully and gives just the right amount of colour. It comes with standard brush which is ok, but generally I think we all tend to use a different brush for application. The lipstick is a new fav of mine - 'China Rose' is a peach cross pink toned nude and has been my staple lippy in the last two weeks or so. Longevity is brilliant and it's got a good moisture to it - I certainly haven't had chapped lips. The Dew Pots have been doing the circuits in the beauty world for a while now. Personally, I don't tend to wear cream eyeshadows, but I have been really enjoying wearing these. 'Coral Blossom' (left) is very peachy and iridescent and 'Willow Whisper' is iridescent but with more of a hint of browns and mauve. I always worry with cream eyeshadows about how long they will last before they start to crease - these lasted longer than I expected to, I will admit, but you will get some creasing, so beware of that. However, like I said, they exceeded my expectations, and the colours are just too pretty to not like wearing them! The nail polish 'Ambitious' is very much like 'Nude Beige' from Models Own - matte-ish colour that ties nicely in with the nude theme. It lasted about 2-3 days before chipping which isn't bad at all recently, and if you like a standard nude polish without having to pay too much, then this is a great one to have in your collection.

So, how much is this lovely gift? From Find-Me-A-Gift.co.uk, it is £26.99 which is great value for money. Bought alone, all the items would add up to £42, so that's a brilliant saving, not to mention a complete set for someone who likes a nude look when they apply makeup. All 5 items are going to be well used within my makeup collection as they're just so adaptable, and everyone wants things they can use and love for Christmas - maybe this is a possibility for someone you know?

  1. I love Christmas too, I'm so sad we're moving on the 20th December as makes decorating before that a bit pointless... I will just have to keep the decorations up longer to compensate!

    I love the amazing giftsets that come out this time of year and MeMeMe always seem to do lovely ones- can't believe I've not tried them yet! xx
