The Revolution Pro Mischief Mattes palette is packed full of colour for fun bold looks. It retails for £8 and contains 18 shades, I was kindly sent one to review for the Superdrug Blog Squad.First of all I have to admit this is not a palette I would have chosen for myself due to the bold colours and the fact it’s all mattes as I prefer warm tones and shimmer.
Some of the colours aren’t as bold as I thought they would be but they do build up nicely and blend easily. They might apply better with an eyeshadow primer as a few colours weren’t looking the best after a full day of wear.
This palette would be great for a makeup kit, festival, holiday or even for a bold everyday look. I love that the shade names are now printed on the palette, it’s also cruelty free and suitable for vegans!
The Wilkinson Sword Intuition Fab is one of the brand new razors on the market and features ‘bi-directional’ blades with the top half shaving up and the bottom half shaving down. It retails for £11.99 with packs of 3 blades also costing the same.
I’m a big fan of the original Intuition razor and love that this version has a water activated gel, it feels much nicer than shaving gel.
The handle is made of soft rubber and is curved which makes it incredibly comfortable and easy to navigate in comparison to the original Intuition. I found that after the first use my skin was left feeling smooth without the need to moisturise afterwards and there were no irritations or shaving rashes.
Although I love both of the Intuition razors I would say this one slightly has the edge as it is easier to use due to the size of the razor head and glides better around the knee and ankle areas.
I would fully recommend this razor and think its perfect for everyday use or to even take away on holiday.

Hey everyone today’s post is another item from Revolution Pro which was kindly sent to me for the Superdrug Blog Squad. The Blur Stick Universal Face Primer is absolutely massive so it is difficult to get coverage all over the face so I tend to rub it on my fingers to be able to apply it to my nose etc…
It doesn’t come out with a colour on the face even though it looks like a foundation shade, it didmake my face feel smooth but I personally prefer other primers with a gel like/moisturising consistency. Whilst it didn’t fully eliminate my pores it did reduce them and gave my base a matte finish so if you prefer a more dewy look then this primer is not for you. Personally I wouldn’t re-purchase this primer when it runs out as I feel there are better ones out there which are cheaper and easier to apply.
This primer is 30g and retails for £10, it is also vegan is cruelty free.
Hey everyone, the lovely people over at Uber Sonic kindly sent over one of their award winning sonic toothbrushes for me to review.
If you haven’t heard of Uber Sonic before then it is a new dental subscription service that costs £19 to start which sees you receive the sonic toothbrush and a gel whitening kit, then for £9 every other month you receive two new replacement brush heads unless you cancel your subscription. If you don’t want to commit to a subscription then you can actually purchase it alone and all customers will get a whitening kit.
Firstly I think £19 is a great price to begin with as their are a whole lot of expensive brushes on the market and have you seen the cost of whitening kits? The toothbrush is very slim and the head has soft bristles which might not be everyone’s preference but unfortunately there isn’t an option for medium bristles etc… I personally like the soft bristles and I like the shape of the head as it really gives a good clean, my original electric toothbrush has a standard round head but I much prefer this one.
Often enough I tend to forget to buy replacement heads until I actually need them so I think its a great idea having them delivered every other month so you can keep them aside until you need them.
The toothbrush comes well presented and has a nice stand, it isn’t flimsy cardboard like some toothbrushes come in and feels good quality like Ipad boxing if that makes sense. I have found it to have a great battery life and I haven’t actually had to charge it since receiving mine.
If you need a new electric toothbrush then I would highly recommend you check out Uber Sonic, it is developed with Dentists, German engineered and the first aluminium toothbrush.

I finally did it, something I thought I would never do… I used fake tan! For the first time ever I ventured out of my comfort zone and tried the Solait Medium Tan Wipes.
At first I was worried by the word ‘Medium’ was I going to to go orange or really dark? Well no I didn’t I was pleasantly surprised to have a nice sun kissed glow.
Lets start positive: They cost £2.99 and are cruelty free and vegan. They are easy to use (rub in a circular motion) and to me it was a great colour that wasn’t too dark although I wouldn’t think it is a medium colour more on the light-medium side.
The negatives: You can’t see the product on the skin so there isn’t any indication of any missed patches so I did end up streaky but that could be down to lack of experience using tanning products. It also made my face feel oily but I do have combination skin.
The colour develops after 4 hours and because you don’t have to hop in the shower to wash it off you can easily repeat the process to cover the streaks or to build up the colour if you want darker skin. I’ve had one shower since applying the tan and my skin although streaky is still holding the colour so it doesn’t fully wash away at first.
These wipes would be great for on the go or to use as a top up for tan you want to stop fading.
Revolution have been coming out with a whole load of new releases and have collaborated with the Youtuber Soph from Sophdoesnails for the second time. Her first collection came out last year and was an eyeshadow palette and a highlighter palette which I love.
This year she has released another eyeshadow palette called Extra Spice and three gorgeous nude lipsticks named Syrup, Fudge and Cake which retail for £4 each.
The packaging of the lipsticks match nicely to both of the eyeshadow palette, when I first saw these in my parcel I thought they looked smaller than I was expecting them to be. Engraved within the lipstick is Soph’s name which I think is a nice personal touch.
The lipsticks are a satin finish, glide on the lips and have an easy application, I didn’t find that a lip liner was needed as you can get a neat line with the lipstick itself. You can blot your lips to make the finish matte if you want to but I found after a couple of hours it looks matte anyway.
I love all of these shades but I think that Fudge is my favourite as it’s a gorgeous deep nude brown but all the shades are great for everyday use anyway. They are also cruelty free and suitable for Vegans.
Sophie from Sophdoesnails and Revolution are at it again with another exciting collaboration! If you didn’t know then Soph is a Youtuber who does loads of great testing videos, first impressions etc… of mainly drugstore makeup. I absolutely loved her first eyeshadow palette and highlighter palette so I had to buy her new collection.
The packaging is stunning and definitely stands out, the look they’ve gone for is inverted colours of the original palette which is a great idea. The back of the box also reveals the shades inside but I don’t fully trust these as the shades tend to look different anyway.
There are 18 shades this time around so slightly less than the first palette but they both retail for £10. There’s 6 gorgeous shimmer shades and 12 mattes, this palette has bolder colours than the first one and I like that the shade names are now printed on the case instead of on the plastic sheet it comes with.
I’m not the best at swatches but I’ve swatched all the colours to show what they are as the palette is only available online.
There is definitely pigment in these shadows, they are buildable and blend out easily so what more could you want from a palette? I love the shimmer shades the best and they don’t even need fixing spray to bring out the colour as they are already incredible when applied dry! I only wish there were more shimmers in the palette but that’s due to personal preference.
The colours are versatile and can be used to create loads of looks and match perfectly with the original palette.
This palette is a bargain for £10! It’s also cruelty free and suitable for Vegans.
Hey everyone, just a quick post today to show you what products I have been loving recently and haven’t put down throughout the month of May, there are tons more products but I’ve kept it short and sweet.
Delicious Destination Body Mists: I believe these are a relatively new launch in Superdrug and cost £3.99 each, I love the Layering Lab Body Mists but they are usually sold out so I thought i’d give these a try. The Watermelon & White Lotus mist smells fruity and fresh whilst the Kiwi & Palm Leaves smells very similar to the Gucci Bamboo fragrance which I absolutely love.
Wake Me Up Caffeine and Green Tea Wipes: These are Superdrug own brand wipes and cost £1.29 they are great for removing make up whilst being gentle on the eyes as I have had problems in the past with wipes making my eyes sore. I love using these on bare skin without make up as it makes my skin feel refreshed. These wipes are suitable for all skin types as well.
Carmex Strawberry Lip Balm: I use this everyday and it definitely keeps dry lips at bay, its one of the best lip balms I think you can get and it retails at £2.69 with loads of different flavours to choose from.
Maybelline Falsies Mascara: This is by no means a new product but I rediscovered it last month after my favourite L’Oréal Paradise Extactic Mascara ran out and I don’t know why I stopped using it, it’s a great volume mascara and only costs £8.99.
Models Own Chrome Indigo Polish: I’ve had this polish a while from a Chrome gift set but I hadn’t actually used it before and its now my favourite shade. It looks great and is the perfect mix of blue and purple, the only downside is that it doesn’t last too long without a top coat applied over it. You can get this shade off the Models Own website for £4.99
If you love cream highlighters then the e.l.f ones are definitely worth checking out and only cost £5. These ones are part of the Beautifully Bare collection and there are three shades to choose from: Pink Pearl Glow, Champagne Glow and Fresh Morning Dew.
I was kindly sent two of the shades by Superdrug to review, although I don’t have the Fresh Morning Dew shade it is described on the e.l.f UK website as being a clear non-shimmer shade.
I love the size of these highlighter crayons as they make it so much easier to swipe across the cheekbone, they glide on with ease and do not drag across the skin. I also love the Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick if you want to check out that review.
As you can see from the swatches they are quite pigmented and that’s before blending! It is recommended you blend with your fingers rather than with a brush or sponge. I found that blending it with my fingers meant that it did not remove any of the foundation underneath.
Who knew that Disney face masks existed!? I was nicely surprised the other day when my boyfriend had brought me this mask to try out. It features my favourite Princess, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty which is definitely boyfriend points.
I love the packaging and you can get other masks featuring Ariel, Belle and Jasmine. This mask cost £4 from The Disney Store but you can buy them online from other retailers such as Amazon.
The sheet mask features a cute design which I think is the same design for all of the Disney Princessmasks. (Apologies for the poor quality image)
Upon getting it out of the packet I must say it is the wettest sheet mask I have ever tried which wasn’t particularly pleasant as I had to immediately go and wash it off my hands whilst trying not to touch anything!
It was too big for my face which is pretty standard for sheet masks anyway so it would be great if they came in different sizes. I left it on for 10-15 minutes like it suggests and my face was completely soaked in product afterwards which resulted in being washed off.
The lavender scent wasn’t too overpowering which was good but I was put off by how wet the product was as it didn’t really give the pamper session a relaxing feeling.
Whilst it left my skin feeling nice and soft afterwards and didn’t irritate any blemishes I do feel that for £4 I didn’t see any noticeable differences and considering most of the product probably got washed off it isn’t worth the money.
