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!!

ANATOMICALS.

Get braced to hear about the most fun brand I have ever come across, I am beyond excited to tell you all about it! Anatomicals, They sell a little bit of everything, mainly face masks, but everything else you could dream of in the way of body & skin care. The main draw for me is the colours, and the funny puns, but the products themselves, are pretty great too.

Let’s start with the face masks (I love face masks, and I’ve tried a lot, practically a connoisseur), and these ones are FAB, they are in the little packets, which I love, normally get one/two uses, mainly share it with someone else, ie. my mam ((hahah she loves it). They have such a variety, for every skin type, and also every sense of humour..

This seaweed mask, is my favourite from the whole collection, it’s such a calming ~smell~ mask, and it leaves my skin feeling the softest ever. Also very cooling, and leaves me feeling very refreshed. Definitely recommend, this is a one I will purchase again n again n agaiiiin!

I mean a chocolate face mask? What more could you want, especially when stressed as it states on the packaging. It left my skin feeling, soft and moisturised. The smell was out of this world, just pure chocolate, which was fab! YUM!

This next mask is a self heating one, which isn’t something I’ve tried a lot of, it’s also mainly for blemished skin, I don’t get a lot of spots as it is, so I can’t say it’s made a difference in that respect, but it’s still a lovely mask! I love whacking on a self

The cherry lip balm has been very close throughout winter, and it’s kept my lips very soft! It has a lovely subtle cheery smell, with a red tint to it, right up my street. It also has spf 8, which is so important, your lips can burn too (facts with sarah).

Hand creams are one of my favourite products (am I 90?) so when I spotted this blueberry one I was so excited, the smell is beyond divine. Then the product itself is very moisturising, this has been a saviour for the past few wintry months.

Have a look over at the Anatomicals website >here<!, they have so many goodies, that you need to have a look at!

urban decay

This is best blogger mail I have ever received, and it’s from none other than the amazing Indulge Beauty team, I have already done a post with a little information about Indulge Beauty which you can read ~here~! They have sent me a bag full of Urban Decay goodies, yes you did read that right URBAN DECAY!! How lucky am I, I am still in awe, and this is the peak of my blogging career so far..

So the first thing I spotted in the bag was the Urban Decay ‘Naked’ palette, sorry, but HOW exciting! I already have this, but mine is battered and pretty much all used up, I got it when I was 16, and it was the first ‘high end’ makeup item I’d ever got, so getting this again brings back memories of finding my love for makeup! But I adore this palette, it’s defiantly my favorite from the ‘Naked’ collection, it’s the perfect palette to grab everyday, and it is full of warm tones, which work for me!

I’ve tried the Urban Decay ‘vice’ lipsticks before, and I love them, ~of course the one I have already is a red shade hehe~ I’ve been lucky enough to receive a gorg nude shade, perfect for when I want to be a little more natural, you know a ‘your lips but better shade’, it’s in the ‘mega matte’ formula and they are so comfy to wear even though they are completely matte, I just love it!

Since the ‘vice liquid lipsticks’ launched I’ve had my eye on them, wondering what the formula would be like, but I only wish I’d tried these sooner, they are so comfortable to wear on the lips, very opaque/pigmented colour payoff, and have a lovely scent! I am defiantly going to have to purchase some more.. I love the packaging too, because you can very clearly see the colour and the lid is the same as the ‘vice’ lipsticks. The colour I was sent was a gorgeous muted/dark purple ~haha, so good at describing~, but I love it for a more natural look instead of my reds.

I do love trying a new mascara, I always am looking for something lengthening and a little volume, but I hate clumpy lashes, they just don’t look good on me. So I was very exited to spot the Urban Decay ‘troublemaker’ mascara, this is the newest one they have launched, and honestly the packaging, wow! It is bloody gorgeous, but the actual mascara itself, well, I do really like that too, it’s more of a spiky brush, but it works to add length, and volume! So this is a total winner for me, and it’s something I know I’ll repurchase when it runs out, yay!

In the capsule box that Indulge Beauty sent me I was lucky enough to try a mini Urban Decay ‘all nighter’ setting spray, which was great, and something I’d wanted to try for a while, the handy mini size meant that it now belongs in my handbag. So I was very kindly gifted a full size Urban Decay ‘all nighter pollution protection’ setting spray, this is honestly just as fab, keeps my makeup on so well, love the packaging, and has a lovely scent, it’s so handy having a full size as I can keep this at home!

Make sure you have a look over at the Indulge Beauty website & check out the Urban Decay & alllll the other goodies they have ~here~!

Also the BIGGEST thank you evvver to the Indulge Beauty team for sending me these things over, I am so gratefulll! Xx

Nars Cruella

I’ve had this lipstick once before a few years ago, and I absolutely loved it, I knew I needed to pick another one up, but I’d just never got round to it.. My dad said he was popping to the Metro, I was like right, let’s just try this ~yeah dad, while you’re there pick me up Nars Cruella~.. He actually bloody did it SCORE, he says it was an Easter present, gosh, best I’ve ever had. ~note to self, ask him to pick more up from the metro~.

So seen as I have this beautiful lipstick back in my collection I thought it was only right to do a review on it, as it’s literally stunning. It’s the velvet matte lip pencil, in the shade Cruella, great name if you ask me because Cruella De Vil is a red lip type of lady ~she’s not real I know, but everyone knows who she is..~. But yes I love anything matte for the lips, as it normally stays on, this lipstick in general stays on for hours for me, after eating and all.

I’d describe the colour to be a deeper red, but I’d say the undertones are pretty neutral it’s neither cool or warm, so it would pretty much suit anyone. I’m also a fan of the fact that it’s a jumbo pencil because you get much more of a precise lip line.

Personally I love Nars’ packaging, I think it’s super sleek and luxurious feeling, yes you are paying more, but you get the quality. I do own a few Nars things, I have a couple of lipsticks, blushes, highlights & a palette, I think of them as a ‘treat yourself’ brand, defiantly not one I’d buy from everyday.

So I’ve done a photo shoot with it, as you can see below, I’m trying to get into taking pictures with props rather than just the product on it’s a bit more appealing to the eyes, let’s hope so anyway ~hahah~.

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<!

bblender

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<!

glamglow

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<!

lordandberry

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*
