Okay, I’m going to start by apologising for the terrible lighting in these… okay it might not be terrible but it’s not great either! The room I usually use for swatches and such is my bedroom, which is currently out of bounds due to work being done that involves taking down part of the wall due to a leak… Leaving my boyfriend and myself to live in our living room/kitchen for possibly 2 weeks or more! I can do work in the living room at the table but the lighting is terrible. It’s a dark room because it’s at the back of the house and trees block any sunlight that might actually reach it… So, I’m left with crappy yellow-toned downlighters which create horrible shadows and my LED white light lamp which kind of saves the day – to an extent!
Sorry, enough about that… Makeup Revolution has released ‘dupes’ for the Kylie Jenner Lip Kits, called the Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kits (a bit of a mouthful!) and although I don’t own any of Kylie’s products for comparison, I thought I’d pick up some the kits for a stand-alone review. Read More »
I have waited so long for this. I finally decided to order these items on the 30th of December and they arrived today – the 11th of January!! Makeup Revolution kindly sent me free item with my order to apologise for the delay. Anyway, I ordered the new Golden Bar chocolate palette and the Bronze and Glow palette and I can’t wait to share these beauties with you! Read More »
I managed to save up a load of points in Superdrug over Christmas buying people presents, etc. and so I treated myself to the Freedom ProArtist Magnetic Palette and a few of the ‘refills’ to go in it. I decided to create a mixed palette of face products and eyeshadows so I can just grab it and use it on-the-go, like if I’m going away for the night. Read More »
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers apply like a gloss, with a doe-foot applicator and great formula, but dry to a matte finish – with no smudging! Which is why I love them. I know I’ve swatched a load of the Velvet Lip Lacquers before but in the last 2 months they’ve released 6 more of them and I wanted to put all my swatches in one place. So, today I spent many hours, resulting in very sore lips, swatching the new shades (and re-swatching the old ones) to finally compile them all in one post! I haven’t included the older shades which are no longer sold on the MUA site (a couple are still available on Superdrug). Let me tell you, it’s taken a while to get this up! I’ll keep the descriptions short and brief as there are 23 colours to get through… Enjoy!Read More »
I haven’t done an eyeshadow review for a while, I don’t think…? But today I’m sharing something with you that I actually purchased a long time ago, and didn’t get round to swatching at the time due to various reasons! The Makeup Revolution Mermaids Forever is one of the Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palettes, which is great value for money at just £8. It’s worth having a look at this particular range because they have some beautiful palettes, and I’ve swatched the Flawless, Flawless 2, Flawless Matte & Flawless Matte 2 for you before. I also have the 4 out of the 5 Iconic Matte Revolution Lipsticks that were released a little while back too, so let’s crack on!
