So back in March I posted my first Makeup Revolution haul, and declared my new love for the brand, so I was really looking forward to doing another big shop, and once again I’m so happy with everything that I felt the need to share!
All of this? Under £35.
Ok, I’m gonna make a confession now: I am way behind on the brow game. If I’m being 100% honest, I’ve never done my brows properly before, only ever had them done by a MUA friend of mine. Please don’t hate me. WELL I decided to catch up by buying three brow kits, and I’m so happy with all of them. The Ultra Brow palette was £7.99 and basically has everything you could possibly need, including a pencil, highlighter and arch cream. This is definitely the kit I would use when doing my makeup at home before going out, then the two mini kits are perfect handbag size! The Focus and Fix Kit was £2.50 and the I ❤ Makeup kit was £2.99, and they both contain pretty much the same shades – these are all fair-medium – and I love that they all have a tiny brush and pair of tweezers!
One of the products I hear the best reviews of from other bloggers is Makeup Revolution highlighters, and most of them are almost always sold out, but I managed to snag these two from the Radiant Light collection – Exhale and Glow. Exhale has a very light pinky tone to it, and Glow is more golden, and they both suit my needs to a tee, plus they look so pretty!
I thought I’d take a chance on this blush stick; I’m normally quite particular about blush but as peachy/coral tones work well for me and it was only £2.50, it seemed like a good buy. I’m so happy with it! I had no idea it could work for lips as well, which is an absolute bonus, and I just love how well it works. For day-to-day use, I use my foundation brush, swiping it across the top of the stick then apply to my cheeks. The shade is perfect and its really pigmented and buildable.
I also got two more eyeshadow palettes, cos at £4 each who can complain really? These are Essential Mattes 2 (left) and Iconic 3 (right), and the shades are actually almost identical for both, just matte versus shimmer. Both are totally fab for natural looks, and such a great range of nude colours. After being slightly disappointed with the lipsticks I got last time, I was a tad dubious when choosing two more in this shop, but the shades looked good and for the price it was worth a shot, so I chose the Iconic Pro lipstick in Looking Ahead, and Lip Power in It’s My Life, and I’m so glad I did! Looking Ahead is exactly what I hoped it would be; not too thick and exactly the shade I expected, and Its My Life is also perfect! I hadn’t realised it had a gloss as well as lipstick, but the lipstick is very nude and matte, with the gloss adding shine if desired. Safe to say, they’re both going to become firm favourites of mine, and both of them came to under £4!
Once again, the guys at Makeup Revolution have made me a very happy girl!
