Mini Haul: Makeup Revolution

makeup revolution haul

A few weeks ago I received a lovely package in the post containing these beauties! Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks I’m sure you will have already heard about Makeup Revolution, and very possibly already own a few bits yourself! They are the newest budget beauty brand to hit the shops and they are fast becoming a beauty bloggers favourite! With prices starting at just £1 they are so affordable, and show that you don’t need to fork out for quality makeup!

I was sent the Vivid Baked Blush in Loved Me The Best*, the Vivid Baked Highlighter in Pink Lights*, the Awesome Eyeshadow and Eyebrow Palette in Disappear Until Tomorrow* and two Amazing Lipsticks in Beloved* and Twist*.

My favourite of the products I received is definitely the blush and the highlighter. I have been using them nearly every day with my Real Techniques contour brush and they go together really nicely. I also love the look of the products. As you can see below, the blush has a swirly pattern and the highlighter reminds me of a shell. It just makes using them feel even nicer as they look so pretty! The Vivid Baked Blushes are £2.50 (link) and the Vivid Baked Highlighters are £3 (link).

The Awesome Eyeshadow and Eyebrow palettes are £4 (link) and I think the quality of the formula is really good for that price! If you use the brush that comes with the palette you do get quite a bit of fall out but when I used it with the brush I got with my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette (post here) I didn’t get any fall out at all. The colours are really versatile, it’s a really good palette for creating a neutral look, or a good smoky eye if you use the darker shades. The top shades in the palette are silver, gold and bronze shades, with one being shimmery and one being more of a matte shade. They are the ones I’ve used the most so far. I haven’t made use of the eyebrow powders as of yet though!

The two Amazing Lipsticks I received are such good shades for me. Beloved is quite a baby pink shade, and is perfect for when I want something a bit understated, although I do need to give it a few layers to get a good colour pay off. As for Twist, this is definitely for when I am feeling a bit more brave! If I apply it straight from the tube it’s very bright and I feel my skin tone needs to be a bit more tanned to pull it off. However I’ve been applying it with a lip brush and it looks a lot less in your face, which I prefer! It is a gorgeous shade for summer though. The Amazing Lipsticks are a bargainous £1! (link)

And there you have it! After trying these products I have to say I am really impressed with Makeup Revolution, and I will be picking up quite a few more things when I get paid next week! The lipsticks especially are great for £1, especially if you just want to try a few new shades and aren’t sure what will suit you! You can buy online here or at Superdrug stores/online.

On Wednesday evening I hopped into a taxi with three other bloggers and was whisked off to Leigh, to the Urban Spirit salon. The fact that the organiser of the event I was going to had booked us transport already had me excited, but the prospect of trying out some Paul Mitchell products meant I couldn’t wait to get there!

Clarins, Cocktails and Canapés!

Processed with Rookie

Sorry I haven’t posted all week, I’ve found it difficult whilst I’ve been on nights and I also went to two events, so I haven’t had time to actually sit down and write! The first event was one I attended on Tuesday, which JAMpr were kind enough to invite me to. As you might have already guessed from the picture, the event was held at Hard Rock Cafe in Manchester, who have just launched a new menu. This meant we got to try mini versions of the new items, as well as some delicious new cocktails!  I’ve only eaten there once before so I was looking forward to discovering some new favourites which I can drag my boyfriend along for!
