REVOLUTION LONDON – Eyeshadow Palette – Foil Frenzy

92744E93-EE4B-409A-84BF-2084EEDD9A2C

This palette is my go to for any makeup looks where I want a foil finish – the wide variety of shades make it useful for numerous colour schemes. The quality is superb, as always is from Revolution, especially considering the price point.

The shadows are easy to use, and best applied like other foils, by using your finger to get instant pigmentation and the unmistakable foil finish. You can use these shadows with a brush, either wet or dry, but they do not have the same appearance when applied.

2AC17BE3-2ECD-4936-923B-61A25519CEB8

 

Bottom Line: Amazing quality, pigmentation, quickly became my makeup bag staple for foil shadows.

Price: £10 at Revolution & BeautyBay.com

Fenty Beauty – Instant Retouch Primer – Santorini Sephora Haul

A37AB932-F548-40E2-B2A6-DBC27FB26E64

A new supreme reigns!

Well, as I said to the lady I was looking for a primer to rival the Fenty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch when I purchased the Benefit Pore Score set, and I’ve decided nothing can compare to the real deal. Rihanna has stepped up the beauty game – and she’s winning. I bought this as part of my Sephora haul in Fira, Santorini – for my entire haul you can view it on my Instagram, or to see my Santorini travels, click here!

F2A23614-C903-4323-9BD7-F754A47FD731

Where do I begin? This primer is soft, moisturising, and keeps my makeup matte all day – without drying out my skin. One thing that I admire about the formula is how a little goes a long way, and it doesn’t sink into pores or fine lines. It’s easy to apply via sponge or fingers, I find its hard to apply with a brush as it causes the bristles to bunch up making application streaky.

The formula is creamy as if a moisturiser – and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin or has that awful silicon texture. It doesn’t cause your foundation to peel or shift as its applied as it dries quickly and forms its priming layer so the two never mix. It’s mattifying and helps combat my oily T-Zone. It’s a shame I tried to buy other primers like the Benefit Pore-fection, as I wish I bought this one sooner!

Bottom Line: Bin your old primer – this one is the one to rule them all.

Price: £24.00 from Fenty Beauty

Mask Time – South Korean Subscription Box – You Got It Glowing On – PR {PAID}

B312C938-6574-4E87-AD12-492312B3CBA9

I was very lucky to have Mask Time to reach out to me, and help me share in their new subscription box showing off the new South Korean skincare range from 9CC – Please note I was gifted this subscription box complimentary and paid to feature a review on my website.

The first thing that struck me regarding Mask Time was their wide selection of gift boxes – it’s not just a one size fits all kind of deal; they have a variety of boxes to suit every budget, every skin type and every personality.

9D2CC2F6-96DC-4C8E-A302-71D943A0FABB

Mask Time have different tiers of boxes, ranging from their £9.95 – Glow Starter box, which is their basic, to their £24.99 – Glow Setter box which contains more full size goodies. Each box has a variety of exclusive South Korean masks ranging from Fibre Masks, Peel Masks and Wash Off masks. These boxes are designed to easily fit through most letterboxes so you can order them and not have to worry about a trip to the post office if you were out!

The box I was sent was their special collaboration with the brand 9CC (Nine Changeless Champion) which contained an 100ml foam cleanser, an 100ml water drops cream, and three fibre face masks. As the products are Korean, they included a handy guide in English to instruct on how to use your new skincare goodies, along with some of their tips! Included with the products is a guide about the brand, and how its making waves in the beauty world with their products that are powered by the energy of the South Korean Sea.

5C69145D-C224-474C-9034-E475C28D4572

My first impressions of the products included were how they were full sized, and the quality of them. The fibre masks were thick, not the usual thin “tissue-paper” material with a hydrating and non sticky serum. The foaming cleanser has a iridescent sheen and cleansed my skin without leaving it feeling exposed or dry. The water drop cream had more of a balm appearance, but instantly dispersed into tiny droplets as the name suggested. Mask Time included a guide on how to categorise your skin from the drops appearance. They are very attentive to their customers and ensure we receive in-depth information regarding the products they include in their boxes – which I have found to be unique as I often find subscriptions boxes seem like a jumble sale of uncoordinated items, whereas these are curated regarding the items included.

Overall I would say this would be a brilliant subscription to have – the items included are quality items, full sized and not discontinued bits-n-bobs that were cheap to throw together you find in other subscription boxes. The variety of prices make them a budget friendly treat, and Mask Time also have their own online store where they sell individual Korean skincare masks and items, so if you don’t want to have a box – you can always pick up a single mask from their store!

Bottom Line: A brilliant box to explore Korean sheet masks and more!

Price: Subscriptions start from £9.95 a month, at Mask Time, or you can purchase individual items from their store!

BECCA Cosmetics – Volcano Goddess – Eyeshadow Palette

IMG_0080

A stunningly beautiful palette of vivid, metallic and matte shades to unleash your inner Goddess.

I stumbled upon this palette whilst on Instagram, and I couldn’t believe the array of colours that were in this palette. BECCA have captured a Volcanic eruption perfectly – the deep reds, the light beige with the smokey greys and black.

I’ve seen BECCA on Instagram a lot, and in awe of their ability to create a natural glow and vivid shades, so I just had to get this one. I am so glad I did. 

IMG_0061

If you follow me on Instagram you would know I crushed hard on this palette, its my go to for a bit of empowering glam. The multitude of shades allow me to create unique looks every time and dare me to be braver with each look!

The formula is creamy, with little to no fallout after a Jeffree Star-esque brush tap to remove excess, and the pigmentation is very vivid – a little goes a long way making this a perfect build up the shade palette.

The shades are punchy, but can be honed for a subtle eye look or you can create a strong, empowering eye look. This is definitely a palette everyone should have in their collections, it is simply stunning.

Bottom Line: One of the prettiest palettes I have ever bought!

Price: £36 @ CultBeauty.com
£32 @ John Lewis & Partners

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Lip Palette – Volume One

IMG_0288

A bold selection of stunning shades, with something to suit everyone.

As soon as this palette was announced – I had to have it, although I waited a while as I didn’t see many reviews on it, so was unsure if it would be worth it. I finally took the plunge with this palette as I am starting to experiment with my makeup more, so thought the vast collection of colours would be useful.

IMG_0287

I find the primary colours at the front are great for those with a better understanding of colours who would like a more customised lip, rather than just use the premixed colours – it also opens up a greater number of combinations that can be obtained by the palette.

This palette comes with a metal mixing plate and a dual ended tool, which has a lip brush at one end and a palette knife at the other, to aid in mixing and combining colours.

The amount of shades that come premixed – and can be made by mixing yourself – make this a perfect tool for any make up artist, or those who would like to branch out from their usual make up creations and try something new.

Bottom Line: A good piece of a kit for a make up artist!

Benefit Cosmetics – the Porefessional & Matte Rescue – Pore Score Kit

IMG_1760

Does this Pore-fessional duo Score five stars? 

I was shown this kit during my search for a new primer to help combat my skin issues that cause my makeup to be patchy.  I suffer from large pores on my cheeks, and oiliness on my T-Zone, so I was suggested to buy this kit, as it includes a full-size Pore-fessional, and a travel size Pore-fessional Matte Rescue, which I could then use to mix and match my primers to my problem areas.

I have used Pore-fessional before, it’s a nude coloured silicon based primer so has a great ability to fill your pores to smooth skin texture whilst subtly evening skin tone – but this was my first time with Matte Rescue.

IMG_1759

Matte Rescue was the biggest let down of the century. It was sold to me as a mattifying gel that dries down, but instead what I got was a gloopy mess that no matter how long I left it to dry for peeled along with my foundation. No matter whether I set it with powder, then applied my foundation or concealer on top – it became a patchy mess.

The only plus to buying this set is that it cost the same as the standard Pore-fessional so the Matte Rescue was free along with a miniature It’s Potent which is handy for my upcoming holiday…

Bottom Line: Stick to the original and give the Matte Rescue a big old miss…

Price: £26.50 from Benefit Cosmetics

Rating: *** (Just stick to the original and enjoy the It’s Potent eye cream).

OPV Beauty – Yemoja Eyeshadow Palette

IMG_2069

A majestically beautiful palette of vivid, metallic and matte shades.

I stumbled upon this palette whilst on Instagram, and I couldn’t believe the colours and how vivid they were – so I had to buy it and test it for myself. And I’m so glad I did.

IMG_2068

OPV Beauty based this palette on inspiration from the Nigerian goddess of Yoruba, the protector of women, love, and healing. This lead to the creation of twelve oceanic shades ranging from a deep crimson red, Eko, to a deep blue, Oba.

The palette boasts a healthy amount of matte and foil shades to help add dimension and light to your eye makeup. The shadows are build-able, with good colour pay off, and blend well allowing for creating combination shades.

The foils apply easy with fingers, and via wet or dry flat brushes to help create intensity desired. My personal favourites are Ayao, a pale pink gold reflects which when applied is a wonderful rose gold appearance, and Oko, a deep foiled forest green. The diversity of the shades make this a great palette to experiment with, and the quality is superb with little fallout.

IMG_2070

Bottom Line: A delicious array of colours to create dramatic foiled looks as well a matte masterpieces.

Herbivore Botanicals – Coco Rose – Luxe Hydration Trio Collection

IMG_0364.JPG

A wonderful introduction to the Herbivore brand!

If you haven’t stumbled upon the much coveted Vegan brand Herbivore, then this might be the set that introduces you to their world. Herbivore is a Vegan, natural company which combines the focus on the modern clean beauty movement with result-driven products, in insanely aesthetically packaging.

This is their Coconut + Rose Luxe Hydration Trio set, where you get three stars of their collection in this curated set. This set includes their Rose Hibiscus hydration spray, their Coco Rose lip conditioner and their Coco Rose body polish, in a smaller travel friendly size as a perfect discovery package.

IMG_0362

Their Rose Hibiscus coconut water face mist is lovely to refresh bare skin or to set makeup with a touch more hydration. The Coco Rose smells delicious, but is a harder, solid type balm which takes a while to warm up so applies in chunks rather than a normal lip balm, which is a bit disappointing.

The body polish is one of the drier of exfoliating polishes, which means it does requires a bit of water to lubricate the exfoliating as it does get a bit raw if used on bone dry skin. Due to this, it does make a wonderful exfoliator to use in the bath as opposed to the shower.

Bottom Line: Wonderfully natural, vegan products that give results every time!

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS – The Complete Daytime Collection– Limited Edition PR Mailer Kit

IMG_1493

I was over the moon when I found that Anastasia Beverly Hills were selling their PR mailer kit on their website due to having limited quantities left – that I just had to get it!

IMG_1495This mailer kit had the entire Daytime collection included for £51 – an absolute bargain when the palette alone is £33, and their liquid lipsticks are £20 a pop! Plus you get these cute Hailie Barber style sunglasses, so it was love at first sight for me!

They also sold the Sunset collection in the complete mailer kit for £49 – so you could grab the entire lot for £100! I decided to stick with just the Daytime collection as I prefer the shade selection and found I would have more use with it!

IMG_1494

The eye shadow quad contains the shades; Sunny, Sand Castle, Rose Quartz and Papaya (clockwise from top left), in the usual Anastasia single eye shadow format. Sunny and Rose Quartz are metallic shades with delicious pigmentation, low fallout, whereas Sand Castle and Papaya are matte which are wonderful as a base or adding dimension.

The palette is reusable as the single shade format means you can mix and match and customise the quad for travel needs or for an easy to carry compact for a night out. The palette is a pale pastel pink with a clear lid so you can clearly see the shades in the palette, as well as a stunning palm tree decor.

IMG_1550
The liquid lipsticks are both metallic and come in the shades Bellini,, a golden peach shade, and Sunset Punch, a dusty mauve.

Their packaging is different to the usual black and rose gold liquid lipsticks, with the lids being the same pale pink as the palette. Although the packaging is different, the lipstick applicator is the same as their other ones so its very easy to use.

I generally stick to matte lips – but these metallic shades are so delicious to layer on top of a nude A.B.H matte such as Crush or Pure Hollywood to add a bit of metal glamour. The formula isn’t clumpy or bitty which is often the case with anything metallic, these instead are as smooth as their matte shades.

Bottom Line: If you’re an A.B.H fan who is into peachy, golden sunny vibes – these are for you!
