Product Review! Make Up Revolution- One eye product, One lip product!

Hello my lovelies! Hope you’re all doing well. Today i have a product review for you, of one of my favourite drugstore brands- Makeup Revolution! I thought that instead of just doing one product i thought i would do one eye product and one lip product from the brand.

Okay so first i’ll start with the eye product, i got this palette with a set a few months back but only recently tried using it, I don’t think it has an official name but it’s basically i mixed of neutral colours, dark colours and then a pink and blue too. If I’m honest, i was a little disappointed with the pigmentation of the colours because I own other Makeup Revolution palettes like the Flawless palette and i absolutely love it, it’s my go to palette. This one on the other hand you really have to build up on the lighter colours because they come out quite sheer, the darker colours on the other hand as you can see from the watches below, they come out so much darker than they look. Obviously the black is heavy and dark like it should be but the greens and purple are too dark. I expectd the green to come out like a nice leaf green like it looks in the tray but it came out a dark mossy green, and the purple came out almost black when it looks a lot lighter.

I did like the brown/neutrals at the end, you can make some nice everyday looks with them and they are easier to work with than the others. Overall i definitely think that Makeup Revolutions Ultra eye shadow palettes are their best ones by far, i own the Flawless Palette but they also have others- Mermaid Forever, Affirmation, Flawless matte, Flawless 2 and much more!

 

Secondly I have a Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip liquid matte lipstick in Vamp, i really love this colour it’s a lovely dark purple shade, but not so dark that it looks black. I personally don’t wear it because i felt like it didn’t look right on my lips but it is definitely worth the buy if you have the right lips and skin tone for it. As for the matte finish, i’d definitely say it does, once its dry it doesn’t feel sticky, it doesn’t smudge and it’s really hard to get off so it must be working right? It has the traditional doe foot applicator so it’s easy to apply.The only thing i would say is that for me it took a couple of strokes because it was a little streaky but other than that i would highly recommend! 100% affordable too!

 

So these are my thoughts on a couple of Makeup Revolutions products, overall i think that they are an amazing beauty range at such affordable rates and i frequently go back to their stall in superdrug. If you’d like to take a look at their products you can either go to Tam Beauty which is the company that hosts make up revolution and freedom makeup, or you can look on the superdrug website or in your local store!

Thank you for reading, hope you’ve had a lovely day!

Ebay finds!

Hello everybody!

I haven’t done a beauty post for a while so i thought i’d do one today and since i purchase two items recently i thought it would be the perfect chance to do a post.

I’ve seen a lot of ebay find videos on youtube and they were quite popular, hopefully you guys enjoy my blog post! I purchased an eye shadow palette and four eye make up brushes, both of the products i am very pleased with. Anyways let’s get talking about them!

Okay, so the first item was this amazing 120 colour eye shadow palette. Now, unfortunately the postman did not read the fragile sign on the parcel and literally chucked the parcel through the letter box making two colours smash 😦 but i fixed them! I got the more neutral toned palette but you can get another, very vibrant version full of all the colours in the rainbow if you wish! This one was only £5.00 which i thought was amazing for the amount of colours you get, the quality is amazing too! All the colours are very pigmented and there’s both matte and shimmery colours! I’m really looking forward to see what looks i can create with this one!

The other item i got was these beautiful rose gold eye brushes, with white and pink hair. I am in love with these brushes, i love rose gold things and these brushes are just so pretty! And for the cheap price of £1.58 too! i was amazed! They feel good quality too, they’re soft but not too soft, the small one are a bit tougher which is exactly how you’d expect them to be. I really can’t wait to use these to create some pretty eye looks.

Hope you guys enjoyed my post, if you want the links comment below and i will send them too you and if you know of any good ebay bargains on make up then feel free to comment the links to me! I’m looking for a set of matte liquid lipsticks next!

Movie Review- Suicide Squad

Hi guys! Hope you’re all doing well and if any of you got your results today i hope you got what you wanted! I haven’t done a non make up related post in a while so i thought i’d do a movie review as i went to see Suicide Squad a little while ago!

For me, it was amazing i loved every second of it, the plot is brilliant, the actors are perfect and well who doesn’t love a little bit of insanity? Harley Quinn and The Joker were definitely my favourite but that’s because i like the psycho personalities that they have…i was a little bit disappointed to find that there wasn’t much of the Joker in the film as in the trailers he’s shown quite a bit and i wanted to see more of him and HQ together but at the same time i understand why the producers cut it out. It isn’t a film about the joker after all. 

BUT can we talk about Jared Leto as the joker? I thought he played it brilliantly, i mean let’s face it..the best Joker was Heath Ledger right? No one could play Mr J like Ledger so Leto had to take it in a different direction and it worked perfectly!

The actual composition of the suicide squad couldn’t have been better, they all have their own levels of crazy and they bring something different to the squad. I absolutely love the whole bad guys as heroes concept! I wish they had given Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) more lines though because his one liners had me in stitches!

Overall i think it’s definitely one you need to see, especially if you’re a fan of superheroes/villains, it’ll have you hooked right from the beginning!

5/5 from me, but i’d love to know your opinion! Feel free to comment below 🙂

Product Review:Flawless Palette by Make up Revolution

 Hey guys! Happy Monday! Hope you’re all doing well and if your win school/college I hope you’re coping with exams well! 🙂

 So here it is, my review post on the Flawless palette by Make Up revolution! 

 I got this for Valentine’s Day from my boyfriend and oh my goodness I’ve not stopped using  it! It’s so pigmented and varies from light colours to dark shadowy colours so you create some amazing looks! There’s also a very shimmery shade 4 in on the top row from the left, it’s the most pigmented, it could be used as an eye highlighter honestly it’s gorgeous! My favourites for when I got it were the coppery colours but now I like the golds and shimmery Browns! 

 I would definitely recommend this product and it’s affordable too! At only £8 I think! You can buy it from ether super drug or here … Make Up Revolution

 The only problem I would say is that the formula for some of them is a little creamier I tho k because my copper shade doesn’t crumble when I use it, it just goes shiny and smooth and doesn’t go onto the brush well…not really sure why! Also some of the colours need to be tested before use because they come out a lot darker than they look, but other than these minors I would say it’s a very practical and affordable product! 

Thank you for reading, I hope it’s given enough research for you!


Sincerely, S x

I’m Back!

Hey guys so as i’m sure you’re aware, i have been absent the last month or so and haven’t posted anything, despite the promise of a review post! I’m so super sorry about that, i had multiple things going on and needed to sort my problems out and make sure i was mentally okay so i could get back to doing what i love-blogging.

BUT i can assure you i am back and i will be posting again! Starting with the review post of the Flawless palette by Make up revolution! It’s fabulous i highly recommend!

So goodbye until the next post!

Product Review: Garnier Cleasning Water

10169115

Hello everybody! It’s me again, i thought this week i would do a product review, exciting huh? So basically i’m constantly using wipes to remove my makeup (gasp!) and it makes my skin really sore after a while, I went into superdrug a few days ago and picked up the Garnier Cleansing Water. Now it’s my holy grail of cleansers, it’s so easy to use, all you need to do is put a little bit on a cotton pad and wipe away and voila! No rinsing under water. The best part i found was that the make up comes of so easily so you don’t need to scrub until your face is red raw, it also hasn’t affected my skin in any negative ways either! No breakouts, no sensitivity, nothing! How brilliant is that? If you have dry skin they have another one for that too!

Honestly I would suggest this product to anyone, it’s a real must have! Check it out for yourselves! 🙂

Make Up Revolution Mini Haul!

Hello! My package from Make Up Revolution finally arrived, yay! I’m so excited to do this post and share the lovely things a got! I didn’t do swatches for these because some of them were gifts but if happy to do some at a later date!

Okay, so i ordered the Make Up revolution Ultra Professional Collection 2016, this was £10 for 12 items and i have to say i am very happy with it!Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

The first thing I took out was my three black and rose gold brushes, two for eye make up and one for the face. The eye ones are E101 and E103 and the face brush is F105, i love them so much they’re so soft and i can’t wait to use them.Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset

I then pulled out the palette, it doesn’t have a specific name but it has so great shimmer colours, from the brown sort of smokey colours to the vibrant colours you can probably find in the unicorn or mermaid palette. Theyre all very pigmented. i’m excited to play with these!

(sorry for the reflection in the image)

The face products that came with the collection was the ultra pro highlighter and a small contouring palette. The highlighter is gorgeous, would be such a nice product to work with, and the palette has a bronzer, blusher and small highlighter. I believe the one i got was for fair to medium skin tone!

I was very excited when i realised the other two eye products were a liquid eyeliner and a focus and fix eye primer. I’ve wanted to have an eye primer to see how it would help my eyeshadow looks and this one works quite well, i’ll have to let you know properly at another time because i’ve only tested on swatches! The eyeliner was a plus because, lets face it..a girl can never have too many eyeliners.

Finally from this collection, the lip products! I got two lip glosses, one sort of hot pink colour and and more sheer nude pink colour, both very glossy but not sticky! I then also got two lipsticks, a gorgeous read and a nude shade. I would give you the names but it appears they don’t have any. I must also add that they smell soooo good, they smell like sweets almost..i’m not really sure what but they smell good!

I did order some extra bits (only 2) the first is my favourite actually, its the liquid lacquer from the salvation velvet collection, in the colour black heart. It’s like a deep purple and it look soo nice! I also love the packaging because it’s different from all the other bits! I also got an eye dust, in the colour Antic. Let me tell you that this is so pigmented and gorgeous, it’s a sort of dark grey, with light grey and purple tints in it, must try it!

So this was my Makeup Revolution Mini Haul, i hope you guys enjoyed it, i’d recommend this brand to anyone, it’s super affordable and most of their products and such good quality (can’t say all because i haven’t tried them all!).

I also hope you like the header, I’ve started using a website/app that allows me to make them so each post should have one and hopefully look better!

My Christmas haul 2015

Hello everybody! I hope you’ve all had a good Christmas an are excited for the new year! I thought i’d share a few bits that i got for christmas and love, in a mini christmas haul! 

Before i start i just want to make it clear that this is not me trying to brag in any way i just thought i’d do a post showing some of my beauty bits i got as a few people requested it, i do not want to offend anyone!

So first of all I got two Make Up Revolution pallets that i wanted really bad! I got the Give Them Nightmares one and the Smokey one, i haven’t got swatches of them but if you want me to do a swatches and review post the comment below or like! But from what I’ve tried all the colours are very pigmented! Make Up Revolution is a perfect brand for affordable high quality products, definitely worth a look!

As you can probably tell, in the Give Them Night Mares One (above and top right) there are 12 shimmery colours and 6 matte colours, I think this is perfect because it allows you to create some really nice looks! 🙂

I then got some tinted lip glosses from a brand i’ve never heard of but it’s a like a cheaper brand but it still has good quality…if that makes any sense! 

The colours very from red to light pink which are quite nice, they’re quite pigmented in the sense that they’re not sheer, apart from the pale pink which provides a subtle tint..i prefer it that way but some people might not! I was really happy to get these anyway because i’ve been into lip products lately and not i can play with the colours and see what suits me best 😀

I was also given a pack of pencil eye liners from the same brand, there were four in a pack and were all different colours!

From the swatches i took, they seemed good quality, i don’t think i’ll use the goldish one, but i could use the brown  one as an eyebrow pencil instead! This was a good present for me because i always use pencil eye liner and there are constantly running down so i can never have too many!

Finally, it’s not a beauty product but it is to do with beauty, i got an acrylic make up organizer which i was actually already looking into buying but im glad i was given one! I didn’t actually realise how much i needed this until i had it! haha it’s a life saver!Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset So these are a few of the bits i got for christmas i highly recommend the two palettes! Show me what you guys got! i want to know 😀 

Until next time!

Sincerely, S x
