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!

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!

1 New Years Resolution!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! Are you excited? I definitely am haha! As its one day till Christmas that means it’s time for the 1 New Years resolution post. I’m not usually one for doing resolutions but I thought this year is change-that’s a resolution in itself!

1. My news years resolution is to stay positive and do everything I can to achieve a good amount of what I want to do with my life. I know this is more like a goal but the staying positive is hard for me and I’m really keen on getting to where I want to be. To do this I need to do everything I can and be motivated to do it at all times. 

What’s your New Years resolution? If you’d like to share then comment below, don’t forget to like and follow/subscribe!
