Bold Summer Makeup

Hey beauties!

Take a look at this beautiful look i did using the Revolution ‘Redemption Mermaids and unicorn’ palette. The colours in this palette are absolutely beautiful, they are bold, pigmented and blend very nicely.

I’m sure a lot of you may be familiar with Makeup Revolution which is a UK drugstore brand. You can purchase their products online as well as many other makeup outlets, so they are easy to get your hands on. They are an affordable brand, with great quality.

I used those two shades shown above, and they were the perfect combination! To give the eyes a little more drama, i used NYX Brights liquid eyeliner in ‘Vivid Sapphire’.

I loved the outcome, I think this is such a playful, fun look. I hope you like it as much as i do. Thanks for stopping by.

Love,

Revolution 144 eyeshadow palette-collection 2017

Hello hello, you have probably noticed by now that whenever i see a bargain of any kind, i’m going to share it or them with you. Today it will be an eyeshadow palette that i saw at a discounted price in my local drugstore Superdrug. Revolution is one of the most sought after drugstore brands, that usually delivers quite amazing products, at very affordable prices. If you’re not in the UK, chances are you’ll be able to find them on Amazon or Ebay. I think this brand has a very bright future, i’ll be testing out some more of their products as time goes by, so i’ll be sure to share that with you as well.

Now this palette is perfect if you are new to makeup  and you want to experiment a bit or  if you’re just someone like me who’s drawn to beautiful palettes haha. It has all the colours that you could possibly need in a palette. At first i though that all the shades were shimmery, but then i discovered it had a few mattes as well.

My thoughts on this palette, the colours are beautiful and smooth to the touch, however some of the shades are more pigmented than others. Using a base usually brings out the pigments more, so i would recommend that you use a white base for the brighter colours and a black base for the darker colours. I also noticed that the really shimmery ones have a bit of fall out, so what i do is spritz my brush with some fix + from Mac, or any other setting spray will suffice.

With 144 shades to choose from, you’ll never be stuck for ideas. The holidays are fast approaching so this will come in very handy. I believe the regular price for this palette was £2o, and it went down to £10, so you can see why i bought it. Also if you’re a fan of or you’ve used Revolution before then you’d know that this palette going for £10, is a steal!

Overall i really do like this palette, the price point is amazing for 144 shades! I think it is worth it.

A tip, this would make a great christmas gift, so be sure to get it from your nearest Superdrug or online.

Love, Shaunz

Bronzed for the gods! Makeup Revolution Bronzer

Cheap and very cheerful is how i describe this golden bronzer! My skin has been kissed by the sun it seems, no it hasn’t, it’s all credits to this Revolution Vivid baked bronzer, at a price tag of £4!!!.

Never mind the expensive ones, this bronzer is absolutely delightful and perfect for women of colour, this particular one is called “Rock on world”. Not to fear, Revolution also has bronzers in their collection that will suit fairer or lighter skinned women.

I have quite a few highlighters or as they are sometimes called bronzers in my makeup stash but none of them can compare to this one. It has been my ‘go to’ bronzer since i purchased it, and i have a funny feeling that it’s going to be one of my summer favourites.

What are you waiting for? Run to the store now and get yourself one if you haven’t already, they do go off the shelves very quickly! You can thank me later. I got mine from Superdrug, Brighton UK, i’m quite sure you’ll be able to get it/them online if that’s your shopping preference. Let me know what your thoughts are.

 

With love Shaunz xo
