If you’re like me and applying makeup all the time then your skincare routine needs to be top notch right? Bad skin days are felt by everyone and they tend to leave me feeling frustrated and a bit meh and if I’m feeling meh my makeups looking meh. Well cared for skin=beautiful makeup.
Now my frustrations were growing because my bad skin day was feeling like a bad skin week. As you can see below I had congested breakout on my chin area and skin looks blemishy and raised.
Now Cult Beauty describes this product as a Multi Award Winning substance that dramatically revitalisesdulled ageing skin that also gradually diminishes the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and redness. Sounds pretty perfect right? Now, it’s priced at £33.50 for a 100ml bottle/3.38 fl.oz. However, they are selling it as a duo so you can get two 100ml bottles for the price of one. Your skin will thankyou. Link is below https://www.cultbeauty.co.uk/alpha-h-liquid-gold-duo-worth-67.html
So i’m not an avid fan of MakeupRevolution, I love their highlighters, their eyeshadow palettes not so much HOWEVER i am in shock because i really love this new collection. Now when it comes to eyeshadows i’m an ABH (Anastasia Beverly Hills) fan, I own all of their palettes, they do everything for me but to do right by this blog, i’ve decided that all makeup is fair game.
Now to start off, their new Collection is a collaboration with fashion and lifestyle creator Dana Al Tuwarish. It consists of an eyeshadow pallet with 22 colours with 5 glimmers and the rest mattes. It has a really nice range of reds, pinks, purples, browns and golds. This palette only cost me £10 so i wasn’t really expecting anything special from it but i was pleasantly surprised. The packaging was pink marble which I thought was really pretty but the pallet itself was even better. Inside was a rose gold palette with a see through lid and a cute double ended eye brush, perfect for blending and defining. On each product packaging there is a little logo indicating that these are cruelty free so no animals were hurt or tested on in the making of these cosmetics which is absolutely brilliant.
Now on the palette itself, i have created some really pretty looks with the colours, everything about it just appeals to me. There is fallout when applying the glimmers but nothing too drastic, does not affect my makeup in anyway can simply go back over with sponge if necessary. When applying the glimmers be sure to spray brush with setting spray before applying on lid to really get that shimmer going otherwise I feel it can be quite lack lustreful, but for £10 it really is affordable and worth the money. The colours pickup quite abit which I like, I’ve received plenty of compliments with this eyeshadow and really had fun using it so i fully recommend if you’re after something cheap and cheerful.https://www.revolutionbeauty.com/Mobile/en/Revolution-x-Dana-Eyeshadow-Palette/m-m-8793.aspx
Next up in the collection is the lip kit which includes a Lipstick in the shade Terracotta, lip liner in the shade Terracotta and a shimmery bronze lipgloss. All of these can be used together or used separately. The lip kit was £8, so again this is an absolute bargain. The lipstick i’m not a fan of, i would recommend priming your lips before hand as i found it went on really tough, but applies nicely with a primer. I don’t dislike it but i don’t love it either, however i’m just the loving the lip liner and the ligloss they apply beautifully and go perfectly together. Also I have found that when I eat, the lipstick I’m wearing transfers to my chin so I’m always carrying concealer around, not sure If anyone else has this problem but I’ve found these products were not a problem for me which is an added bonus. https://www.revolutionbeauty.com/Mobile/en/Revolution-X-Dana-Lipstick-Kit/m-m-8968.aspx
Finally in the collection is the Strobe pallet and i’ve got to say it’s gorgeous!! it’s my favourite from the collection. It consists of 3 highly pigmented highlights with one ivory white with a duochrome shift, champagne gold and a warm bronze. I have found when applying the ivory shade I was working the brush abit to pick it up so if you want an intense glow I’d recommend using your fingers to get the desired impact. This trio honestly provides a perfect glow and i love sweeping the warm bronze shade over the top of my contour, it just leaves me looking radiant and only priced at £6 it’s an absolute must have. Now in total you can get the whole collection for £24 which is not even half the price of a high end eyeshadow pallete. https://www.revolutionbeauty.com/Mobile/en/Revolution-X-Dana-Strobe-Palette/m-m-8794.aspx
I really hoped you enjoyed my breakdown of the new collection from MakeupRevolution, if you’ve tried it yourself i’d love to hear your thoughts on it, so please drop me a comment😊
All I have to say is wow…so let me start off by saying that I am a newbie to false lashes. I have naturally long lashes so never felt the need to apply lashes but I really wanted to see what the fuss was about.
Now application; I was warned Fake lashes are messy and you gotta cut them down to measurement so I was prepared for a struggle. The box contained one lash for the right and one for the left and this is clearly marked in their container by the letters R and L. It comes with adhesive which you thinly spread on to the lash line, wait 20/30 seconds to apply then hold into place. Now I apply it on top of my eyeliner so it blends in easily and not once have they messed up my eye makeup, not once have they fell out of place. They instantly make my eyes lashes go from great to amazing. They feel lightweight and you just forget you have them on. Also you don’t have to worry about those windy days cause they stay in place perfectly.
Now I’m not allowed to wear fake lashes to work but they look so natural and are a little longer than my lashes that I just wear them anyway. I’ve been asked if I’ve had them done, cause they look amazing. Their reaction is priceless when I reveal that they are fake, they’re honestly just perfect for that natural look. They’re a beautiful pair of lashes and well worth the money.
