I must be honest and admit i’m not the most adventurous with my make up choices, my everyday look is a neutral toned smokey eye, cat eye liquid eyeliner and a touch of lipstick. Because of this I tend to buy the majority of my make up on the high street (bar the occasional mac lipstick) and i’m more interested in splurging on skincare to get my skin as good as it can be, than buying expensive make up. I first tried Makeup Revolution about a year ago and really enjoyed the products, so I decided to check their website out again as I was due a few new bits of make up and low and behold I found a nicely sized parcel at my doorstep.
I must admit some products I bought have been a little hit and miss, the Ultra Velour lip creams in ‘It’s what we do best’ and ‘You’re not the best you’re not the last’ disappointed me a little and I probably won’t use them much as I found them quite wet and wore off quite quickly. The Salvation Velvet Lacquer in Vamp is better, however the colour I’ve found a little TOO dark for me and i’ll probably only wear on nights out. Ultra Aqua Brow Tint ‘Medium’ is something I think I can grow to love, however its taking me some time to get used to the product as i’m so used to using pencils to fill in my eyebrows, but so far I am enjoying the colour.
Having already tried, and loved, the Romantic Smoked palette I felt it was time for me to try one of their other ones available. Makeup Revolution are like many make up brands at the moment creating ‘dupes’ of the Urban Decay Naked palettes so I decided to give them ago as the Urban Decay ones are a little out of my budget. I opted for the Iconic 3 palette and I wish i’d gotten it sooner. The eyeshadows are packed with colour and theres not a single shade in the set that I don’t love, giving my everyday smokey eye a much needed make over.
On a whim I decided to pick up a contour kit in light, as I’m always carrying a blusher, contour powder and highlighter back and forth to my boyfriends house whenever I go stay and having all three in one seemed like a logical idea. The contour powder is the perfect colour for my super pale skin, having previously just used a pressed powder in a few shades darker (I’m sorry) this colour is much better for contouring. I don’t contour too much as I don’t think theres the need for it, but a little sweep on my cheekbones teamed with the highlight gives me a gorgeous glow. Whoever invented contour kits like these I thank you, you’ve made me life a whole lot easier, and my make up bag a whole lot lighter.
