I saw a thread about "Make up store" in the Hauls section, and it just reminded me how much i LOVE their stuff....
I picked up a few bits and pieces in Sweden last year, i'd LOVE if we had a store here (Ireland).
Any other fans?

I'm not a huge fan. I can get identical factory generics for a quarter of the price, and I found the quality of the products themselves to be wildly varying.

I will, however, say that the Make-Up Store magazine is fantastic. It's always sold out at the nearest MUS, unfortunately. It's a great inspiration piece, even if the trend forecasts are six months out of date due to it being a northern hemisphere production.

I love Make up Store.. I went to a club night just yesterday, and had a great time
I do agree that their products vary in quality (like the e/s's), but I like most of them. Also, my nearest MAC store is an hour away from me, so when I need my makeup-fix I just drop by Make up Store
FACE Stockholm is another great Swedish makeup brand, I really really love their foundations.

And I love their magazine too, it's such a great source of inspiration! Although it gets kinda tiring to see an interview with the editor in chief (and founder or MuS) in every single issue.

Hi!

I recently encountered a Make Up Store in Sydney and was wondering if any of you have had any experience with their products?

I particularly liked their eye shadows, and have seen online that they have a powder eyeliner that looked interesting...

Any feedback would be greatly apprecaited!

TIA

I haven't used their products, but used to always be tempted to go in and play with the makeup back in Sydney (atm I'm on exchange in Montreal).

I don't know whether they last or not, but both the texture and the pigmentation of the eyeshadows and the lipsticks seemed really good. If they're weren't so expensive, I would've already bought a bunch of them home.

i havent used them either, i've heard ALOT of good things about them

i go on a swedish glamour models blog sometimes and the only brands she uses are Makeup Store and YSL. I'm dying to get my hands on some of it but they don't sell it here

I really want to try this as well. The price is similar like MAC here in Canada (eyeshadows) and sometimes a little more cheaper (blushes). They come out in so much different colors too..

Make Up Store is one of my fav brands (of course right after MAC
) I really like their eyeshadows, they are really pigmented and blend well. I also love their glitter eyeliners and blushes. But the thing I love most from them in the cover all mix, really handy to have both red and blue coverage in one pot.
If some one wants I can make swatches of my MUS producst, sadly I just broke to of my shadows from them :/

Make up store is a quality brand, I would say their products are comparable to Mac. Their eyeshadows are great, and the cover all mix is fantastic.

their skunk brush and powder brush (i got the pink one) didn't really do it for me. they both continue to leak dye and are a bit rough on my skin.

I haven't really tried any of the makeup, but the glitter stuff they have looks awesome.

there's also an older thread here that i started ages ago trawling for info - there are a couple of good responses in there!

Thank you everyone for your replies!!!

Looks like I will have to make another trip to the store to try out some of their eyeshadows
especially as some of the duochrome colours looked spectacular!

I'm going to be visiting Sydney every 3 months, so I will have to make those hauls worthwhile


Thanks again!

If you could swatch some of the eyeshadows it would be greatly appreciated


There aren't any descriptions of colours on their site so it's impossible to know which ones are duochrome etc...

I like them too! Great brow powder trio and they have a lot of nice colours. I've got some stuff I could swatch too.

I have a couple of their matte eyeshadows, they are nice, super pigmented
They are huge so you get a great deal for your money.
I also have one eyeshadow brush from them, I love it but the handle is just too long

Make Up Store is quite big in Sweden, but the quality of the products can vary a lot. The best you can get is a micro-shadow, they are very well pigmented. Foundations and concealers are not that good, concealers are dry and cakey. Also stay away from toners and primers, they are all alcohol and vaseline, but expensive. Choosing ingredients are not the strong side of MUS, their eyeshadows, for example contains triclosan, which is toxic . Eventhough I don't want my e/s to mold, I would't wear something toxic on my eyelids all day, which is reason enough for me to stay out of MUS.
Another problem is that their packaging easily can break, I've read about numerous cases. And they have a problem with the eyedust packaging, both the old and the new one.

I don't like the new e/s packaking at all! It's very hard to tell what colour is inside and the lid does fall of quite easily. I liked the older packaking wiht the screwtops a lot more.
