NEW Makeup Revolution Ultra Eyes Like Angels Eyeshadow Palette | Review

Posted on July 5, 2014

eyes-like-angels-review

Hi Guys!

It seems like not a day goes past at the moment without Makeup Revolution introducing a new product! This time it’s the Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palettes. These are a pair of brand new palettes, one is called Flawless which includes neutral toned shimmer shades, and the one I have is called Eyes Like Angels, which is full of bright and fabulous coloured shimmer shades!

The Ultra 32 Shade Palettes are only £8 each – divide this been 32 shades and the shadows come out at only 25p each, OMG! Yes the pans are fairly small, but there really is nothing to complain about here! Most of the shadows offer fabulous high pigmented colour, with a high shimmer finish and top quality colour payoff. There’s only a couple of them which weren’t up to the standard of the others. These were Bold Purple and Pink! Bold Purple is the fifth one across on the second picture below, and Pink! is the third one across on the third picture. These were both far less shimmery than the others, I thought they may have been mattes at first but they do both have a slight hint of shimmer. They were unfortunately very powdery and didn’t give a very good colour payoff at all.

The rest of the shadows however, were just amazing! Makeup Revolution have wowed me again! My favourite has to be the deep intense reddish pink shade, Sophisticated Pink, this instantly caught my eye! So in all you have 30 fantastic eyeshadow shades here for only £8, this definitely gets a thumbs up from me!

So what do you think? Would you purchase this palette? Have you tried anything from Makeup Revolution yet? xxx

June Beauty Favourites!

Posted on July 4, 2014

Hi Guys!

It was pretty hard to cut down my favourites for last month, I’ve been loving so many products! Some of these I’ve already blogged about and some I haven’t had a chance to yet, so take a look and let me know what you think! 🙂

A’Kin Macadamia & Wheat Protein Conditioner – This stuff is fantastic! It’s perfect for dry and damaged hair and it helps to provide maximum moisture to make your hair hydrated and shiny. Which we all need in this weather, right?

Makeup Revolution What you Waiting For Eyeshadow Palette – You may have already seen my many reviews on Makeup Rev, these guys are taking the beauty word by storm at the moment, and they just seem to keep bringing out amazing budget cosmetics! I can’t wait to see what’s next up their sleeves!

MAC Kelly Osbourne Jolly Good MSF – These littly babies sold out super fast, and if you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of these you’ll know why it’s in my June favourites! This duo MSF is a fab super soft bronzer and blush powder that’s the perfect shade for fairer skin tones like mine!

 – I know this is a grey shade, which isn’t exactly summery but I can’t help but love it! Work with me here – just imagine this on tanned skin, with summery white clothing, flip flops, hints of neon and long salt spray wavy hair, you get me?

 – Oh this! Just this. I’ll have the full review up for this shortly so I won’t go into too much detail but it’s such a fabulous product for keeping your skin hydrated in this weather, I don’t think I’ll ever look back!

Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Violet – I’m saying nothing. Just click on the link 😉

Crabtree& Evelyn Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Body Scrub – This is a fab body scrub that smells as yummy as it sounds, it’s rich in antioxidants and contains a nourishing blend of pomegranate, sunflower, jojoba, pumpkin, and sesame seed oils replenish and soften the skin.

Ok so that’s about it for my June favourites, I could probably include another 10 products but we’d be here forever! I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of these? xxx

I Heart Makeup | Haul, Review & Swatches

Posted on June 26, 2014

i-heart-makeup-haul

Hi Guys!

So here is my I Heart Makeup review post! You may have seen my introduction post the other day telling you about the brand new division of Makeup Revolution. I Heart Makeup is different to Makeup Revolution as it’s classed as ‘fast fashion makeup’, so fingers crossed there will be exciting frequent new products on sale then! They very kindly sent me a selection of products from the new range to try out and play with, and here they are! I have the I Heart My Lips lipstick in Heart Attack, Lip Geek lipstick in Love The Confidence, I Want Candy Blush in Blushing and Slogan Palette in Explicit Content.

i-heart-makeup-lipsticks

I Heart Makeup currently have two types of lipstick on sale. There’s the I Heart My Lips Lipstick, at £2.49 which comes is in a black casing and the lipstick itself is heart shaped with a lighter colour running through the centre. The other is the Lip Geek Lipstick, £2.99, which is ‘normal’ looking rather than heart shaped, and comes in a high shine pink and purple casing but this one also comes in a black box with embossed metallic lettering.

i-heart-makeup-lipstick-review heart-lipstick i-heart-makeup-lipstick-swatches

I had a feeling the I Heart My Lips lipstick was going to be a bit sheer and balmy looking. I wondered if maybe this is because it kind of reminded me of a lipstick a little girl might have, you know the ones that are very sheer and not really a lipstick? This must be just because it’s heart shaped! Anyway this was not the case at all. You can see from the above swatch that it’s a gorgeous intense bright red colour. It has a satin finish and was also really moisturising and comfortable to wear. The Lip Geek Lipstick was not quite as moisturising and slightly sheerer, it also had the slightest hint of sparkle. Both are great bargains at less than £3 each, but the I Heart My Lips lipstick was definitely a favourite for me.

Next up is the blush. Now I’m not actually sure which blusher this is, it just says ‘Blushing’ on the back but I can’t actually see this shade on the website. So I don’t know if there’s been a mistake or if this just isn’t for sale yet. I’ll find out what’s going on and I’ll update this post! Anyway, I absolutely love this blush, it’s a light muted beige pink and it’s the perfect accompaniment to my Kelly Osbourne Jolly Good Mineralize Skinfinish! The blush in the Jolly Good compact is more like a highlighter, and this I Heart Makeup blush is just the perfect colour to wear with it, just like the MSF the finish is satin and gives a hint of glow which I love!

explicit-content-palette-review

And now on my favourite item of the bunch, the palette! The Explicit Content palette is one of four ‘Slogan’ palettes. This one has a mixture of 36 matte and shimmer shades ranging from nudes to more intense colours and it costs £7.99. It’s worth mentioning the casing is pretty awesome too, if you tilt it backwards and forwards you can see different images!

My initial thoughts were that this would be similar to the What You Waiting For Makeup Revolution palette, as it’s made by the same company. The matte shades weren’t so great on the What You Waiting For palette so I kind of expected the same with Explicit Content. Luckily with this one though the majority of shades are shimmers, with only six of the shades having a matte finish.

The colours on first glance look awesome! I love the warm golden tones and the intense blues! On closer inspection a few of the shades are a little bit ‘samey’ for my liking, but overall there’s a decent range of colours. I decided to start off by swatching one colour that stood out to me from each column of shadows. I’ve marked below so you can see the ones I chose. (FYI the first two and second from last are matte shades)

swatched-colours

Ok so here are the swatches, and as predicted the shimmers were pretty much fantastic, and the mattes were unfortunately a bit of a let down. The shimmer colours were buttery soft and were so pigmented, you wouldn’t think they were from a budget palette at all. The mattes on the other hand were pretty chalky and hard to work with.

Just look at that amazing burnt orange!! I can’t wait to try some looks out with these colours!

So the only let down here are the mattes unfortunately, but at least there’s only six of them! So you still have 30 great shimmer eyeshadows here for £7.99 – it’s still a fab budget buy!

So what do you think about this little lot? Does anything catch your eye?

I hope you enjoyed my post 🙂 xxx

I Heart Makeup by Makeup Revolution – New Division | Overview!

Posted on June 23, 2014

i-heart-makeup

Hi Guys!

So today I have another  post for you! These guys have been very busy bees! They’ve just gone and launched a whole new division to their brand called . I Heart Makeup can be found on the Makeup Revolution site, (link on the far right of the home page). I heart Makeup is described as ‘fast fashion makeup’ so from this alone I would expect frequent new products, exciting launches and of course the high quality and fab prices I’m used to from Makeup Revolution!

The I Heart Makeup range includes lip glosses, lipsticks, blush, bronzer, highlighter and a large selection of eyeshadow palettes. Prices are similar to Makeup Revolution with lipsticks and glosses being the cheapest priced at £2.49. The product themes are very ‘now’ with the ‘Slogan’ palette rage of four different eyeshadow palettes including names such as #Selfie and No Photos Please. There is also another range of four palettes called the ‘Wonder Palettes’ which includes two chocolate themed palettes and two heart themed palettes.

The whole range of cosmetics is all very fun and non serious! And sometimes that’s exactly what makeup should be! There’s also heart shaped lipsticks, and heart shaped bronzers and highlighters – very cute!

So I’ve included a few images below to whet your appetite, and I have a couple of products to review which will be on the blog by the end of the week! If you’re interested in Makeup Revolution products, I also have an eyeshadow palette review and purple edit review you should check out!

Makeup Revolution What You Waiting For? Eyeshadow Palette | Review

Posted on June 22, 2014

makeup revolution

Hi Guys!

Today I have a review of one of the awesome new products from Makeup Revolution! If you haven’t heard of Makeup revolution they’re a brand new makeup company taking the beauty world by storm! They’ve only been up and running since March and already have over 300 products on offer from only £1!

makeup revolution salvation palette review

I have the What You Waiting For? Salvation Eyeshadow Palette. This is one of five, brand new and limited edition palettes! The packaging is clean and slick looking, with a glossy black finish and gold lettering. And at £6 for 18 eyeshadows, this couldn’t really be much cheaper! 33p per eyeshadow is a pretty good deal really!

If you were to purchase all the palettes in this collection, it would cost you just £30. Just think about it, £30 for NINETY eyeshadows! WOW!

Anyway, let’s get back on track! Each Salvation palette consists of 12 complimentary shimmer shades and 6 matte shades. The shadows in the What You Waiting For? palette are all easy-to-wear, neutral colours. I also love that all the shadows are named, which is often not the case with budget cosmetics. The Gwen Stefani theme gets a big thumbs up from me!

Now on to some swatches! The shimmer shadows are simply fabulous. I cannot fault them. I sat round my mums house photographing and then swatching the palette, and as soon as I felt the smoothness of the eyeshadows I literally said ‘Wow!’ out loud, and had to show my mum! The shimmers at gorgeous, pigmented and super buttery soft. I think my preconceptions of budget makeup made my expectations on the low side. But once again Makeup Revolution have impressed me! (I have another purple themed Makeup Revolution review post if you want to check that out!)

Here are some swatches of the first row of shadows – I’m afraid my pictures don’t express just how pigmented these are!

The second row of shimmer shadows probably contains my favourites out of this palette, I’m in love with Scary Conversation (gold) and Now It’s Only Me (light nude pink) These really caught my eye as they’re so shimmery, they have almost a metallic finish!

The matte shadows I have to say were not as exciting as the shimmers, they were slightly on the chalky side but they still weren’t bad at all!

I am so impressed with this palette, and it’s only £6! I can’t believe it! I would definitely highly recommend it! So what do you think? Will you be snapping up one of the Salvation Palettes?

I hope you enjoyed my post!
