Makeup Revolution – Brow Pomade – Blonde

IMG_7707

A pigmented, easy to blend brow pomade to get your brows on fleek!

Recently I decided to change colour of my brow pomade to something lighter for the Summer months as my hair has gone lighter and my previous Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow pomade was getting too dark. I found this look-alike pomade from Makeup Revolution when I bought the stunning Abracadabra pressed glitter palette!

When comparing the consistency of the pomade compared to the DipBrow, they’re very similar – they’re both highly pigmented so a lot goes a long way, and their very easy to blend to allow for a flawless brow transition. If you’re looking for a temporary shade, then I do recommend this brow pomade, as it’s a very good dupe of the cult favourite ABH DipBrow. But, if you’re looking to get one for long-term use I’d recommend investing in the DipBrow, as its longevity is astounding.

One thing I’ve noticed is for a blonde shade it is close to a medium brown in ABH terms, but due to the limited 6 shades Makeup Revolution has compared to the 11 shades that ABH boast, make sure you do a colour check in store to get the closest match! Plus side – this one is vegan!

What I do love from this kit is the brush that you get included – it doesn’t look like much but its a handy, on the go, applicator which isn’t half bad considering the actual cost of this pomade! It comes with an angled brush end, and a flat brush end, the latter of which is perfect for cleaning up the brow with concealer!

Bottom Line: Amazing quality, pigmentation, and a brilliant DipBrow dupe at a fraction of the cost!

Makeup Revolution – Pressed Glitter Palette – Abracadabra

IMG_7708

A magical collection of pressed glitter goodness!

Can I start by sayong wow! I rarely find a pressed glitter palette that I must get – usually I’m put off by the formulas or the fact you can’t purchase them from a reputable UK registered companies. Anything regarding glitter makes me dubious – is it cosmetic grade? Can you use it near your eyes? Is it safe?

Ensuring my products are safe and up to the cosmetic requirements is something I hold very important – if the glitter isn’t cosmetic grade it could be small pieces of plastic or metal that can cause damage to your eyes and skin – something that I do not take lightly! Look after yourselves and only buy from reputable sellers! With that in mind, I was stoked to hear that Makeup Revolution was releasing some new glitter palettes which I just had to get my hands on!

Out of the three, this is the one that caught my eye the most and I knew I just had to have it in my collection! The vivid shades of Alchemy and Superstition just drew me in and I was sold at Witchcraft. Plus you know I’m a sucker for anything witchy! 

The glitters are stunning, easy to use and stick well with the use of a glitter glue/primer. I’ve been using mine with the Nyx Glitter Primer, and been having minimal fallout with enough wear for an evening – approximately 4-5 hours of wear before they start to wear off. I have yet to try it with another glue/primer so it could all be down to that.

The glitter particles are a good size, not too large or small so they’re perfect for contouring into the eyelid without creating a solid panel – but rather a flexible coating which decreases the awkwardness some glitters can have when worn.

What I love is the variety of colours – making it easier to use for multiple looks. They do offer two other pressed glitter palettes in a less diversified colours with a golden colour scheme and a burgundy red scheme.

Bottom Line: The vividness of the colours, along with the duochrome glimpses of Hocus Pocus have me under it’s spell!

Price: £9.99 @ Superdrug and Makeup Revolution.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION LONDON – Highlighter& Eyeshadow Palette– Good As Gold

IMG_4522

A beautiful golden brown collection with stunning shimmery highlights.

I snapped this palette up alongside my other Makeup Revolution London palettes. This palette caught my eye due to the glittering gold shades of eyeshadows, and the fact it has four complimentary highlighter shades!

These eyeshadow shades are very pigmented and the shimmery shades do not contain chunky glitter. With beautiful neutral matte base shades, and dark transitional shades this is a perfect all in one palette for created gilded looks. There’s different shades of gold to get the glam look you are aiming for whether its subtle, or showstopping!

IMG_4523

You also get four highlighter shades; a bronzed shade, a bright 24K gold shade, a pale champagne gold and a pale pink shade. The golds are shimmery, with fine golden shimmer where as the pink shade is a matte highlighter. The pink shade is absolutely stunning if you don’t want extra shimmer, but still want an eye-catching highlight that is buildable from subtle to glow queen!

Bottom Line: A stunning collection of golden eyeshadows and highlighters!

Makeup Revolution London – Highlighter Palette – Ultra Cool Glow – Unicorn Glow!

IMG_3635

A bright, vibrant highlighter palette to turn you into the shimmering mythical creature you are!

I got this palette at the same time as my Soph Does Nails eyeshadow palette, as I wanted to get a few brighter shades to add a bit of colour to my looks – whether it be in highlighter or eyeshadow form!

IMG_3641

These highlighters are very pigmented, and have shimmer – not glitter – which is what you want in a highlighter! As the name suggests, these are cool toned shades so add an “icy” feel when used. They’re lovely rainbow shades, and you can use these as an eyeshadow, highlighter or anything else that you want to do as the colours are build-able so you can decide if you want to go subtle or show-stopping.

IMG_3638

This palette reminds me of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moon Child palette and the Aurora palette – so if you’re looking to get those or a dupe, this is a very budget friendly version- especially when you get eight gorgeous shades.

Bottom Line: A brilliantly vibrant highlighter palette for unleashing your inner unicorn!
