Makeup Revolution Pro Hygiene Solid Brush Cleaner Review


Makeup Revolution Solid Brush Cleaner hit or miss? Carry on reading to find out my full first impression!

First of all it costs £5 for a 100ml tub so it should last for a while and the packaging is pretty basic. One thing I didn’t like is that the instructions is stuck on with a sticky label which is already peeling off.

It’s pretty simple to use and handy to travel with as it isn’t very bulky. It is basically a pot of soap through that expires 12 months after opening.

From first impressions I was surprised at how well it removed harsh pink eyeshadow tones from the brushes with just one use.

An observation I found is that it cleaned my EcoTools foundation brushes much better than my Real Techniques ones but it still didn’t remove all of the product.

It cleans eyeshadow brushes very quickly and removes all traces of products but face brushes take much longer and it’s not guaranteed you’ll get a fully clean brush.

Overall I think the product works fine but it didn’t really impress me, had it throughly cleaned my face brushes then I’d be recommending it but it isn’t anything special.

A Yankee Candle Christmas


Christmas is fast approaching with only 20 days to go and what better time is there to light festive scented candles.

I absolutely love Yankee Candles from the jars to the tea lights and everything in between! The Christmas scents are one of my favourites so today’s post is dedicated to a selection of Festive votives.

My all time favourite has to be Snowflake Cookie with Sparkling Cinnamon a close second, who doesn’t love the smell of cinnamon right?

There’s so many more scents you can get in different varieties and they make great stocking fillers for friends and family.

The Simply Home version of Yankee are from Asda and they still smell just as great they just aren’t the ‘original’ ones. Votives are a great way to sample scents without purchasing the jars first!

Merry Christmas!

Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Ice Kiss Highlighter


It’s no surprise that Makeup Revolution has became massively popular over the past year with more and more products coming out on a frequent basis.

Whilst today’s review isn’t a brand new launch it’s still fairly recent and is part of the Skin Kiss Highlighter collection. (New Shades have just launched)

Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Ice Kiss Highlighter

The shade Ice Kiss is a stunning icy gold colour with a lot of pigment! It can be built up for a maximum glow or a little of this really does go a long way. The pan it comes in is absolutely huge so it will last a long time but who can resist buying more highlighters regardless of whether they’ve ran out?

The Skin Kiss range consists of gorgeous shades and each one costs just £5!

B. Suis Moi Luminous Silk Lipstick 


B. Official Makeup has recently been rebranded after a while of being away from the shelves. If you’ve never heard of B. it’s the cruelty free makeup brand by Superdrug and is vegan and vegetarian friendly. 

I was kindly sent a luminous silk lipstick of theirs to test as part of the Superdrug Blog Squad. The shade I received is Suis Moi. 

B. Suis Moi Lipstick
 I was really pleased to get a nude pink shade as I don’t really wear many other colours. I think the packaging is quite sleek and simple as well. 

The formula is described as luminous silk, it glides on the lips nicely and doesn’t feel sticky etc… The shade is quite sheer to begin with but is buildable with layers.

B. Suis Moi Lipstick Swatch

One issue I did have with this lipstick is I don’t feel it matches the shade sticker as I was expecting a more purple mauve shade. I much prefer the shade it actually is but that’s not the point so just be careful when ordering online if you haven’t seen swatches first. 

I love the colour but it is transfer proof and it doesn’t really last long if you’re eating or drinking but it hasn’t put me off trying more from the range. 

The lipsticks retail at £6.99 and come in a wide range of shades!

Superdrug Layering Lab Body Mists Review 


Hands up who loves fragrance! I certainly do so I was pleased to receive the Layering Lab Body Mists as part of the Superdrug Blog Squad. I received mine in the scents Oriental and Cocoon.

The idea of the mists is that you can choose two from the collection (six available scents) and layer them together to create a unique scent or you can wear them individually which I think is a great concept. 

Superdrug Layering Labs Body Mist
Oriental is my favourite of the two and contains the notes spice, berries and floral it also smells like Diesel Loverdose Tattoo! Cocoon has jasmine, vanilla and musk and I was less keen on this scent but purely because I’m not a vanilla fan. 
I’ve never really been a body mist fan either but I can honestly say I’ve been converted and I can’t wait to try out the rest of the range! At 100ml they are perfectly handbag sized and I think the simplistic packaging is so cute.
As always with Superdrug own brands it’s cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Makeup Revolution Vampire Night Lip Kit 


It’s almost Halloween and to celebrate Makeup Revolution have brought out some new ‘spooky’ products including the Vampire Night matte lip kit and Ghostly highlighters. 

Makeup Revolution Vampire Night
The box design is no different to the usual lip kits launched earlier this year, I’m slightly disappointed the lips don’t feature vampire teeth to add that special Halloween touch.

Deep reds are such great colours for Autumn so I was excited to try this out. I have two other lip kits from MUR which I have reviewed here. Unfortunately the lip liner doesn’t fully match and is more pinky toned than the actual liquid lipstick so on application you can see the difference.

MUR Vampire Night Swatch
The liquid lipstick is a very good match to the box image which I know MUR have had problems in the past with incorrect shade images. Compared to previous kits I felt the lip liner wasn’t as creamy and felt more difficult to apply as it felt sharper.

If you’ve visited my blog before then you’ll know I absolutely love MUR but this lip kit just wasn’t my favourite. The liquid lipstick formula is not the same as previous kits and felt quite flaky to wipe away and didn’t feel as comfortable on the lips and personally I’d rather the lip liner was a matching shade.

For £6 you get a great vampy shade but it isn’t the best lip kit around.

Have you tried Vampire Night? 

Soph X Makeup Revolution Highlighter Palette 


Welcome back to part two of the Soph X Makeup Revolution collection, todays edition is my thoughts on the highlighter palette, if you haven’t checked out the first part which is the eyeshadow palette then you can read it here.

Soph X Highlighter Palette

I absolutely love Soph’s videos and Makeup Revolution so its a match made in heaven, it would be nice if she created more products in the future!

The highlighter palette packaging is quite simple with its peachy coloured box, window view and rose gold writing. Unfortunately there couldn’t be any shade names due to the window but it’d be interesting to know what they would have been called.

Soph X Highlighters

The highlighters consist of eight stunning shades four baked and two pressed, again this palette is aimed at all skin tones so whilst its not possible to use all of them as highlighters the remaining shades will make great eyeshadows.  

Soph X Highlighter Swatches

Apologies for the swatches not being the best they are extremely pigmented in the flesh! I adore the purple shade and even though I wont be able to use the bronze shades they would look gorgeous on deeper skin tones and as eyeshadows.

For £8 you get a large palette with a selection of different shades to match most skin tones.

Available at Superdrug, Tam Beauty and coming soon to Ulta.

Soph X Makeup Revolution Ultra Eyeshadow Palette 


One of my favourite Youtubers Sophdoesnails has recently collaborated with Makeup Revolution to create two stunning palettes, one eyeshadow and one highlighter. It is not limited edition but they have been selling out fast on the Superdrug website. I managed to get both so stay tuned for the highlighter review with swatches.

Soph X Revolution Eyeshadows PaletteThe packaging is a matte peachy pink colour with rose gold embossed writing and paint splats, Soph designed it all herself and went for a watercolour theme. It definitely stands out against the other Makeup Revolution palettes.

Soph X Revolution EyeshadowsThere are 24 shades to choose from with a mixture of mattes and shimmers, as you can see there’s a wide selection for all occasions. I absolutely love the colours available and constantly use shimmer shades.

Soph X Shimmer Swatches
(From Left-Right: Pine Tree, Petrol, Mixed Berries, Festive Flame, Copper Coin, Grow Old, Sparks Fly)

I’m not the best at swatches but I’ve included some of my favourite shimmer and matte shades, the swatches don’t do them much justice as they are extremely pigmented.  I absolutely love the shades Festive Flame and Copper Coin its great shades for Autumn.

Soph X Matte Swatches
(From Left- Right: Danger, Cup of Tea, Pumpkin, Strawberry Sweets, Mug Cake, Peaches, Nightmare)

The mattes are so pigmented and easy to blend, Soph wanted her palette to appeal to all audiences and skin tones not just for fair skin tones like herself.

At just £10 you get a large mirror, 24 shades and a palette that’s great for all occasions! 

Available at Superdrug, Tam Beauty and coming soon to Ulta 

Wonder Woman Wonder Lipstick 


Welcome back to the final instalment of the Wonder Woman lipstick mini series, these lipsticks were part of the Wilkinson Sword razor campaign to celebrate the release of the new Wonder Woman film.

Wonder Woman Wonder Lipstick

Wonder is the shade I was absolutely dying to get my hands on out of the four piece collection, unfortunately I only managed to get three of the shades so my collection isn’t complete!

Wonder Woman Wonder Swatch

Wonder is a stunning pink nude shade and I absolutely love any kind of nude lipstick so I had to get my hands on this one.  Sorry for the picture being not very good but I assure you it is an amazing colour. I believe the promotion is still running so I’d definitely recommend grabbing this shade if you can.

Wonder Woman Lipsticks

This is my mini collection and as you can see there’s different shades to cater to each individual taste, we have the deep red shade Wisdom and Power is a classic red.

I love these lipsticks, the shades are pigmented and they aren’t drying at all which is always a bonus and cruelty free!
