Make Up Revolution fabulousness!!!!!!!!!

Hey friends

Happy new year to you all I truly hope you all had a wonderful Christmas that’s if you celebrate it if not i still hope you had a fabulous break .

Also seeing the weather this week i hope when you go out you wrap up warm .

Let’s get on with the fun part the makeup ūüíĄ.

I cant say i have in the past got a lot from this brand i do have one or two eye palettes and a blush palette but that’s it .

But for Christmas my sister only went and got me a fabulous Makeup Revolution 12 Days of Christmas Storage Chest”with loads of there beautiful products in and omg i cant believe i have waited this long to open it but i knew you guys would want to share the beauty bliss moment with me .

But i would like your help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m going to share with you what came in the box and what my first impressions are and then i want you guys to comment on the products you have tried from this brand and how they make you feel when wearing them and how they live up to ur expectations.

As I haven’t used this brand a lot before and love listening to other peoples views.But I have tried out few bits on this collection and put what i thing .

What we waiting for lets go !!!!!!!!!!!!!

And the first one i have pulled out is

Pro Go Brush Set

I haven’t had time to try these baby’s out yet but going by what i have tried from this brand they will be fabulous.

Eyeshadow Palette Matte (18) Eyeshadow Palette Shimmers (Night) Eyeshadow Palette Matte (Forecast)

This brand and eyeshadow palettes are so good, all of them have excellent dupes for more expensive brands, high pigmented and easy to blend. They are so affordable I cannot rate them high enough,

Blush Palette (Dream)

There a real bright & vibrant pink colours they makes a great contrast with a grey/black smoky eye it has a nice pigmentation to it with great staying power & goes on easy with a blusher brush.

HD Pro Brow Palette

This brow kit exceeded my expectations. ¬†I was not expecting the shadows and wax shades to be so pigmented and the range of colours are lovely. The 2 highlighter shades are nice too however I wasn’t too keen on the wax highlighter.

Ultra Strobe Balm Palette

I’m yet to try and cant comment but i cant say how pretty they look and how I’m so excited to try

Aqua Priming Base

I find that it is really hydrating for my skin & helps with the application of my foundation!.. I use to pay loads at Mac but from now on I’m sticking too this baby

Make Up Fixing Spray

It is easy to use and definitely sets makeup and keeps it looking freshly applied for several hours. I highly recommend this fixing spray and as a bonus it comes in attractive packaging. It’s a must try

Ultra Strobe Cream

Tried this product out for a week, rather than repurchased MAC strobe cream and I was surprised. The product it’s self smells amazing, is so smooth and makes your skin incredibly soft and of corse it is also quite glowing on the skin. I’ve found I also like to blend it into my foundation too for a more dewy look. Overall the product is great and great value for money

Eye Primer
Lip Gloss set  (Euphoria /Amlification /Sheer )

I cant comment as I’m yet to try but once i do i will do a review x
Ok so that’s a wrap
Thank you so much for your support in 2016 and i look forward to another fabulous year with you

I have a YouTube channel if you fancy popping over and having a look and subscribing and liking

August Favourites

Hello friends

Dont you think august came and went so fast which means summers nearly over ;-( but to bring the mood back lol i have a few fab products i have been loving and using all of august and I think i might even use them in september .

lets start with the haircare i have been loving

1. Tresemme Keratin Smooth 7Days Smooth System Shampoo
As you guys me know i have very thick hair which means  when i wash and dry my hair its gos like a big bush lol this shampoo was great it started to treat and care for my hair and helped calm the frizz down.

2.Tresemme Keratin Smooth 7Days Smooth System Conditioner Omg once i used the conditioner it seemed to have worked fast with the shampoo i used about a handful of the conditioner and left it in for a few mins then took it out and blow dryed my hair fizz free wow wow wow

3.Osmo Day Two Styler Dry Shampoo i was sent this and did a blog post on this dry shampoo it was sent to me by a pr company and im so glad they did i normally have to wash my hair loads per week due to the oils in my hair but this dry shampoo worked so well i only had to wash my hair 3 times in one work .

Next is the Makeup i have been using in august

1.Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in light plus  highlights to cheeks and brows, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face i seem to use it to highlight my cheeks and brow it works fab .

2.Soap And Glory Kick Ass Conceraler amazing undereye brightening concealer, an ‘on the spot’ as-you-need-it complexion concealer, and a weightless transparent setting powder.

3.Avon Super Shock Max Mascara The quick release brush separates and defines lashes, detangling like a comb with no fuss or mess for volumised lashes with glistening, multi-dimensional colour this mascara comes in my bag where ever i go cant live without it.

4.Avon Luxe Lipstick  pearlescent colour to enhance brightness this is another product that come with me in my handbag i love love love it .

5.Ilamasqua Cream Blusher  highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity you desire this blush is a high-end blush costing around £21.00 and my most loved .

6.Soap And Glory Thick and fast We already know I’m a sucker for Soap & Glory’s super cute and kitsch packaging, and the product claims sounded promising.¬†The claims of this mascara definitely appeal to my lash desires; natural looking lashes doesn’t tend to be the look I go for. I also love classic mascara wands so I was excited to see how it would work. The wand makes a satisfying ‘pop’ when you remove it from the tube and it doesn’t come out overloaded with product – definitely a good thing.


However, the first time I applied the mascara I wasn’t massively impressed. It did an okay job, but I found the formula to be quite wet and therefore my Shu-Uemura created curl was rendered limp and useless in less than an hour. So far, so disappointing.¬†

Experience shows that certain products end up being written off as useless when really it might be a matter of figuring out the ideal way to apply it, be it foundation, blush, or in this case mascara!¬†In the name of a thorough review I persevered for a few days and it certainly paid off.¬†A few days in I had my ‘Eureka’ moment.

Next is my perfume







7.Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir¬†Beware….This scent is so seductive, you will receive compliments left and right from both sexes its rich Ruby-rich juices of pomegranate, raspberry and plum are spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. Dark and enigmatic makes people ask what your wearing it makes me feel in away¬†sexy and¬†beautiful¬†its a girls must have.

8.Avon Far Away Gold perfume is an evening perfume for date nights so on Juicy peach and luminous freesia mingle with Indian jasmine and finish with seductive sandalwood is claming .

Next is my skincare 




9.Boots Botanics day and night cream ¬†i wanted to try a highstreet day and night cream and went it to boots and i came across the bonanics range¬†I thought because it came in a pot rather than a bottle it would be very thick, instead it is a lovely smooth liquidy cream, glides on so you don’t drag at your skin and soaks in really well.
Smells lovely in a very subtle way and has definitely made my skin softer and better since I’ve been using it (around a month now). I love that it has SPF as well since it’s one less thing to worry about.
I’m not sure if it’s made my skin brighter (or even what that means!) but it’s definitely made it look and feel really good so in that sense it’s definitely an improvement. Great value for a product that’s done so much for me and it looks like the jars¬† will last well too.

10.Liz Earle Vanilla And Saffron Body Cream Love the texture and the lovely smell of this product wouldnt be without it.

Next Bath Foam



11.Soap and Glory Foam Call Bath Gel there isnt a lot i can say apart from try it and your see and feel a new woman .

Thats it guys those are my august favourites
