MeMeMe Beat the Blues: a tale of a bathroom disaster

Before Christmas I was sent a couple of products from the MeMeMe range to review. One of the standout products was the gorgeous ‘Beat the Blues’ liquid highlighter. A pretty shimmering pink liquid, in a nail varnish-like bottle that blends easily into a pretty glow.

This is meant to be comparable to a similar product by Benefit, although I don’t own it so I can’t comment if this is true – if you do, let me know what you think.

I really like this highlighter- it’s great to use under foundation on cheekbones to create a subtle glow, that looks healthy and not shimmery in daylight. It helps add a bit of a healthy dimension to matte foundations that can suck the life from skin.

So, as I said I really like this. So when THIS……

…happened on Wednesday this week, I was pretty upset. I managed to drop it (twice in one morning, once was fine – second time, not so fine) so I was left with shattered glass and pretty pink shimmer splatted all over my bathroom.

This isn’t in any way a criticism of the product, I only have my own clumsiness to blame. But how depressing is it when you break a product you love?! I’m going to try and get an empty container so I can decant the product that is left into it and continue using it – or go all out and buy another one.

The MeMeMe Beat the Blues highlighter is available from Superdrug and costs around £4.99.

    I’d buy another one, just incase there are small shards of glass in the product.

    I personally prefer this one to the benefit – the shimmer in the MeMeMe is finer.

    That’s a good point about the glass- not really something I want to be rubbing into my face! It is really nice, so going to get myself another one.

    Ahhh doesn’t look so pretty there! Hope you didn’t hurt yourself!

    That’s true, it doesn’t look so pretty- moral of the story is take pictures at the start before testing things, and don’t be so clumsy.

    No serious injuries sustained – just a small cut, nothing serious!

    Aww that totally sucks! Well at last you still have some product left… I never broke a product that I loved, besides my beloved Annabelle eye shadow, but I was able to mend it with alcohol. I hope everything will be OK with you, and just be careful of the shards of glass.
