revolution pro ~ supreme matte lip pigment !

Revolution Pro has just recently launched, it’s a side on brand from Makeup Revolution, mainly aimed at makeup artists, or just makeup lovers in general. They have a lot of products, and my eye was mainly drawn to the matte liquid lipsticks, so.. I bought six of them.. ~hehe woops~. I thought that it would be a fab opportunity to do a review.

colours by swatch from left to right; show ~ spiritual ~ inconspicuous ~ subliminal ~ sixth sense ~ intuition.

pro

Sixth Sense ~ this shade is bloody lovely, it’s a very purpley/pink red, reminds me a little of Charlotte Tilburys’ ~ Glastonberry. I think it would be perfect to wear anytime, especially Autumn time, you know, when them leeeaves are falling ~my FAVE time evvvver!

Inconspicuous ~ an orangey red, this colour is screamiiiing summer, and I can’t wait to wear this! It is so bright, which you know, I love me some bright colours! Normally I wouldn’t go for an orange but here we are!

Show ~ show is very much a dark chocolate brown colour, I’ve always wondered what this kinda shade would look like, and honestly, not as bad as expected ~haha~. It does hold a red undertone, which makes it slightly more wearable.

Subliminal ~ this one is my FAVE from them all, it’s just the perfect dark red shade, something I would wear everyday.

Spiritual ~ so here we have a post box kinda red, that true bright red that makes you feel like a glamour queen, I love this, it’s nice to whack on when you’ve got more of a natural makeup on.

Intuition ~ forever I have been searching for a colour like this, and here it finally is, the darkest purple ever, with warm undertones, but not pinky looking, god I am obsessed thank you for blessing us with this Makeup Revolution!

So I’ll do a little round up of what I think overall, personally I am loving this formula, it’s not drying, and they are very opaque colours, which is FAB. Also can we just talk about the packaging? UM, Nars is that u? They really remind me of Nars packaging, and I love that, the sleek black, with the colour popping through. Plus the best bit about them is the fact they are only £4, I mean come on, that’s a bloody bargain!!!

!!!*GIVEAWAY*!!!
So typical me, ordered two of the shade Show by mistake, and I can’t send it back, it’s still absolutely sealed, untouched, hahah so, I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway with it, all you have to do is comment on this blog post! I shall pick someone next Wednesday (02.05.18), and I shall post it too you, hehe, good luuuck! ~uk only!!

Indulge Beauty

Have you heard of Indulge Beauty? If not.. you need too. Ps. this blog post is a long one hehe grab a cuppa tea!

It’s a brand new beauty retailer, and they already have everything sooo right. They have a shop in Westfield’s Stratford City (get me there asap), but thankfully they also have a whole sparkly website full with some amazing beauty bits. They sell a massive range of things from, makeup to fragrances, hair products, bath and body and also have a full range for men. FAB! They sell some amazing brands too, let me list a few; beauty blender, buxom, glam glow, makeup forever, the ordinary & urban decay.. I could go on for days. Find a whole list >here<!

A slight extraction from their website that I love is.. ‘At Indulge Beauty, our mission is to empower you when it comes to beauty and grooming – leaving it all in your hands. We aim to redefine the industry so you feel good about how you shop, feel and look – confidence to show the world the real you.’ I LOVE THIS (already said that hehe, but I do).

So I have been VERY lucky to have been gifted one of their beauty capsule boxes, jam packed with their top picks for 2018, and I am in love, so I’m going to share with you what I got inside, EEP how exciting!

Can you believe I call myself a beauty lover, but I’ve never tried a real Beauty Blender? Well I haven’t.. So when I spotted this in my box I screamed! I have a few beauty sponges of course, but this feels amazing compared, it blends my makeup so much more seamlessly, I am fully converted, and I’m just gutted that I didn’t try it sooner. Also it came with a mini Beauty Blender ‘bender cleanser’ so I can wash it properly, and keep it as pink as possible. (Am I now a proper beauty blogger?).. Shop the Beauty blender >here<! & Buy the Beauty Blender cleaner >here<!

Glam Glow is again a branded I’ve lusted over for the longest time, hearing constant shining reviews, I did have a few of there masks on my wish list. But finally I’ve tried one! WOO, and I couldn’t be happier, it defiantly live up to the expectations. So the one I’ve received is the gravity mud firming treatment, it’s a peel of mask, and I can’t deny that I resembled the tin man while I had it on (hahah), but it’s left my skin feeling very firm as suggested and so soft, very easy to peel of too! I’m excited to try more from Glam Glow. Shop the Glam Glow range >here<!

Another thing that I’ve been wanting to try for a while (it’s like my wish list in a box hahah), is the Urban Decay all nighter setting spray, I’ve heard such amazing things about this for years, and I finally have my own YAY. It’s also a mini which is perfect size to pop in my bag, so I can keep my makeup on, on the go. Shop the Urban Decay range >here<!

urban decay

Bbrowbar next, an eyebrow gel, I must say I love an eyebrow gel, it’s clear, so handy for keeping your brows in place all day, whether you have them filled in or not it’s always a staple product in my makeup bag. This ones really nice it holds the brows in place without them left feeling hard. The brush is a perfect size too! Shop the Bbrowbar range >here<!

We all know that I love my lipsticks, but again a brand I’ve never tried is Lord & Berry crayon lipstick in the shade ‘fire’, which is a gorgeous red/orange with a slight pink hint, this is literally right up my street, and I can already tell I’m going to wear this constantly through spring & summer, well probably all year (let’s be honest). It feels very moisturising on the lips, and gives a lovely sheen. Shop the Lord & Berry range >here<!

When it comes to a moisturiser I defiantly need something hydrating as my skin is mostly dry/dehydrated, so when I spotted the Clarins hydra-essentiel cream in the box I was so excited. I haven’t yet found the ‘perfect’ moisturiser for me yet. This could be it?! (with some luck). I’ve tried it a little, and so far it sits well on my skin, doesn’t bunch up, and does add some hydration, so I’m excited to see in the long run how I get on. Shop the Clarins hydra-essentiel cream >here<!

clarins

Another hydrating product?! My skin couldn’t be more excited (and in need, with it being winter lol). A brand named Perricone MD, sounds fancy, eh?! This is the hydrating cloud cream, it sounds amazing, doesn’t it? I’ve been using this just on little dry areas on my face as a pose to all over, and I LOVE IT! It defiantly is making my skin a lot softer, and giving my skin the treat it needed. Shop the Perricone MD range >here<!

hydrate

Let’s chat about a soap next, that I am all heart eyes over the packaging, it looks very vintage, which is right up my street. I never normally venture to buy any snazzy soaps. I just use the ones we have in the house, but it’s defiantly great to have a change. This soap is fair-trade and organic fabulous. It’s by the brand Dr. Bronner’s and it’s the all-one hemp rose, including ingredients such as; coconut oil, palm oil, hemp oil, and rose fragrance. It also smells very fabulous let me tell you. Shop the Dr. Bronner’s soap >here<!

dr bronners

This product I’m about to chat about is something I didn’t even know existed.. It’s by the brand Skin Laundry and it’s a neck & chest sheet mask?! WOW. I love face masks a lot, so I’m very sure I’ll love this. It’s silly but I suppose it’s easy to forget about looking after your skin on both your neck & chest (or maybe it’s just me that forgets haha), but this is such an easy way to keep them areas moisturised. It claims to refresh, tighten and brighten, which is perfect! Shop the Skin Laundry neck & chest mask >here<!

Night creams are one of my favourite skin care products, mainly because you can whack loads on and let it do the skin some magic overnight. This one is from the brand Verso, it’s there night cream with retinol 8. It claims to have a calming and repairing effect on the skin. It’s another fab smelling product and it has made my skin feel smooth. Shop the Verso night cream >here<!

The next product is from a brand called Sachajuan, which is a professional haircare brand, my hair defiantly gets neglected, so I’m excited to have received this. I want to start of with the smell, it is divine! It’s an ocean mist which basically is going to give your hair a very beachy look, which I love, it’ll be fab for the upcoming summer months. Shop the Sachajuan ocean mist >here<!

There was also a couple of fragrances inside the box eeeep, I love trying new fragrances, but it’s not something I ever get to try very often, I think with fragrances it’s easier to stick with what you know. I got the Loewe; Quizas; Pasion, which is an eau de toilette, for me this would be something to wear every now and then as it’s quite strong, but it is a very expensive, warm smelling scent (so good at describing fragrance lol). And also I got the men’s fragrance too! Shop the whole Loewe range >here<!

perfume

The final product is from M.E Skin Lab, it’s called ‘baume 27’, again fancy right?! I’ve never ever heard of this brand, but I’m excited to see how this works for me. It’s a repairing balm that helps to restructure the skin, it helps with elasticity and firmness. It’s going to repair any damaged skin, so I’m going to give this a go on a couple of face scars I have (from chicken pox lol).

A massive thank you to the team over at Indulge Beauty for sending me over this beautiful capsule box, I couldn’t be more grateful! *squeeeeze*

the red lipstick edit.

Ah red lipstick, it’s just my absolute favourite makeup item! For me it completes the look and makes me feel my pulled together self. I love how bold it is, and it just makes me feel that extra bit confident, and more alive. Over the years I have tried loads of shades of red, each being so unique and something I’m never sure how I coped daily without. I thought it would be a fun to delve into my red lippys, and show you my top picks, from glosses to mattes to satins, to liquid to stick, I have everything! *obsession alert*

Fenty Beauty; Stunna- Now I know I’ve done a full post about this so that speaks for itself, I am in love with everything about it, it just takes you from casual to full glam, the pigment in unreal and I am in loooove, if you want to read my full review, you’ll find it >here<!

Jeffree Star; Unicorn Blood & Designer Blood- These two liquid lipsticks are probably my all time favourite colours, I wear them daily. They last forever and they are the perfect shades of red. Unicorn Blood is the lighter of the two, and of course that means Designer Blood is darker red, with a slight gold reflect in certain lights. I’ve been through two of the both, and I am well in need of purchasing my third (hehe).

Urban Decay; Hex- Onto a lipstick now, this is a mega matte formula from Urban Decay and it’s probably my top favourite stick formula, it’s the most gorgeous dark red shade, which is perfect. Urban Decay updated there whole lipstick range, last year I think? & as soon as I saw they’d made the shade Hex I screamed with joy.

MAC; Russian Red- Now I don’t use MAC anymore, but I feel like I have to mention this lipstick, it’s defiantly my OG, and what got me loving red lipsticks, it’s Russian Red, which is a matte formula, I first heard about this shade from velvetgh0st on youtube, and as soon as I bought it, it became a daily essential. I’ve used up two I loved it so much. It’s just the perfect red shade with blue undertones which compliments my ghostly face well.

Sugarpill; Anti Socialite– I have this in both stick and liquid version so can you tell I like it? Haha! It’s the perfect deep vampy red, which is exactly what I love to wear daily against my ghostly complexion, I just think it compliments me so well! I mean also can we just take a moment for Sugarpills’ packaging!! LOVE IT!

L’Oréal; Ruby Opera- This is a gloss, now I don’t often wear glosses but it’s great to have one in your collection. This one by L’Oréal isn’t sticky either, so it’s my go to if I want a glossy red, which I think is a statement lip for sure. Sometimes I like popping a tiny bit of this over another lippy just to add a little shine. But if you do build it up it gives a very wet, shiny lip look.

NARS; Bette- I could lie, but the main reason I bought this because it’s so boujie, a magnetic closure, an imprint in the lipstick, and just the packaging overall like WOW. NARS in general are one of my favourite brands, and this lipstick doesn’t disappoint, it’s again.. a dark red, haha (what a surprise).

As you can see I love red lipstick, and I could babble on about it all day, I know I have a lot, but of course I need more, please tell me some of your recommendations below (so I have someone to blame when I buy more hehe).
