Hey everyone, today’s post is all about my top 5 favourite eyebrow products. I’m no expert and can’t create the perfect brow but the products featured are super easy to use and great at filling in any gaps.
Maybelline Brow Satin: With a thin pencil at one end and a filling powder at the other it’s super easy to fill in your brows. I love this as it’s quick to use and small hair like strokes can be achieved. There’s currently not many shades to choose from which is the only downside. My shade is Medium Brown and it retails for £6.99
Maybelline Brow Drama: I use the clear shade (Transparent) and it’s perfect for setting brows into place, although the brush is quite large and ball shaped. It lasts for ages and only costs £5.99.
Freedom Eyebrow Pomade: this is my first experience with a pomade and I have the shade chocolate. I find it’s easier to apply when it’s warmed up first on the skin. The shade is great and it’s affordable at £5, you can also get pomades from the sister company Makeup Revolution.
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil: I have a mini sample which came free with a magazine so it’s not an exact shade match but it is so easy to use! It’s shaped similar to a tear drop so you can use the point to shape and then fill in with the rest of the pencil. Full size: £20
Benefit Gimme Brow: As before it’s a magazine sample. It’s a brow gel with a small brush which applies so easily and doesn’t create a mess. It’s brush is a lot smaller than the Maybelline brow gel so it’s slightly more precise. Full size: £20
Out of all these products my go to is the Maybelline Brow Stain pencil as I personally find it the easiest to apply and it’s the best shade.
A good lip scrub is essential if you suffer with dry lips or if you want to prime your lips for a smoother applications of your lip products.
Today’s review is all about the B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub. If you aren’t aware then B. is the cruelty free, vegan and vegetable friendly makeup and skincare brand by Superdrug.
This particular scrub has no flavour which is a shame as I love the E.L.F mint maniac scrub. On the first use I found it didn’t actually do anything, this is one of those products where you have to work away the top layer first.
I love that it’s in lipstick form again which makes it quick to use on the go, however, the product itself is pretty basic including its packaging. It’s not a bad product it’s just not a brilliant product either.
Currently it’s on offer for £3.33 instead of £4.99. I personally wont be picking up this scrub again as there’s other brands selling scrubs for a similar price including Barry M who have now launched new flavours.
I received a Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Cream in the Pro Amplified Strobe and Highlighting gift set I had for Christmas so I thought I’d share my thoughts on it.
Firstly it’s a smaller 30ml size the ones you can buy are 50ml and cost £8. I mentioned on my Makeup Revolution Brush Cleaner post a slight packaging issue with the sticker peeling off well guess what? Same issue here it hasn’t been stuck on correctly and on the back of the tube the label isn’t in the centre. I feel this makes the products look cheap.
With the strobe cream you can either wear it on its own as a highlighter or you can mix it with your foundation for a dewy look. I personally prefer the product under foundation and found it also works well with B.B. Creams.
In terms of being on top of products as a highlight I found it took away the B.B cream when trying to blend. The product itself comes out white and blends out to leave a gold shimmer on the skin.
I like this product but personally I probably wouldn’t re-purchase the full size as I much prefer powder highlighters.
Available at Superdrug and the Tam Beauty Website.
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.
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.
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!
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.
The 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.
There 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.
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.
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
Ditch the wipes in favour of the B. Pure Micellar Water. It cleanes, tones and refreshes skin whilst gently removing make up.
It’s great for all skin types including very sensitive skin and best of all you can use it on Eye make up!
I’ve tried Micellar waters and face wipes in the past which have made my eyes feel sore afterwards and my skin isn’t even that sensitive but this product is great. One problem I did find with removing eye make up is that for eyeliner it did transfer it under my eye more so than removing it.
For £4.49 you get a large 400ml bottle that’s sure to last a while and currently B. Skincare is buy one get one free so why not stock up!
If you’re looking for a golden highlighter that’s easy to apply, a drugstore brand and a cream product and not powder then continue reading this post. The Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick in Gold Light (what a mouthful) fits the bill perfectly if you’re looking for all of the above.
Priced at £9.99 you get a large highlighter which is easy to glide across your cheeks but not really anywhere else but you could always use your finger or a brush… Admittedly I find the packaging rather underwhelming and basic compared to other highlighters on the market.
The product is a gorgeous colour and buildable to create the desired look, I also like to use it as a base for powder highlighters to make a more intense glow.
Revlon also do a pink toned highlighter in the shade Pink Light but I haven’t tried that one, let me know in the comments if it’s worth picking up.
Overall I would recommend this highlighter if it’s on offer, whilst I do really like it I think £9.99 is a bit pricey when you can buy highlighting palettes for cheaper.
The Ultimate All-In-One Mascara by Revlon claims to feature five lash transforming benefits in one tube, this is instead of singularly buying one of the other mascaras they currently have on offer such as the Ultra Volume etc…
You might be wondering what the five extraordinary benefits are, well I can tell you it creates volume, length, definition, lifts the lashes and has an intense colour.
There are currently three shades to choose from which are Blackest Black, Blackened Brown and Waterproof Blackest.
The ‘Power Mini-Brush’ is the smallest mascara wand ive ever used, I thought it would be difficult to use at first but it isn’t actually that bad! The oval shaped wand makes for an easy application, the only downside for me is the mascara formula itself is quite a wet consistency (similar to the Maybelline Lash Sensational).
I definitely think the mascara delivers on what it promises but in terms of the intense colour I wouldn’t have really looked out for it had I not known it makes a difference. Yes its black but I don’t see how its any different to another black mascara…
What are your thoughts on Revlon’s new Mascara collection?
Introducing the L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask! One of three new masks introduced by the skincare experts, as well as the detox mask you can also purchase the glow mask for dull skin and the purity clay mask for oily skin.
One of the things I love about this mask is the charcoal properties that draw out imperfections which is one of the main reasons I purchased this one over the glow mask, I also have the purity mask which I will leave for another review.
My preferred way of applying the mask is with a makeup brush as ive heard it can be quite messy otherwise, I just purchased a cheap one from Poundshop and surprisingly it hasn’t ruined! Only a thin layer is required which means plenty of applications to be had.
Like any mask it goes on for around 10-15 minutes, its also gentle enough to be used 2-3 times a week which is a bonus as I love weekly face mask. I can comment that the mask can be messy to remove but its less messy with a warm wet flannel/cloth and it is a quicker method of removal.
The mask always leaves my skin feeling soft and fresh and I would fully recommend it to anyone who’s curious to try it.
Currently the mask is on offer for £5 (introductory) and will go up to £7.99
