B. Priming Soufflé

A Priming soufflé is something that’s completely new to me, I’d never heard of it and only found out about it when Superdrug kindly sent it me to review for their Blog Squad.

B. Is their own brand beauty and skincare line which is cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

B Priming Souffle

I was expecting the product to have a scent but it doesn’t. It feels exactly like the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation which is lovely and a little goes a long way.

With this primer you can use it alone for a matte finish or use it after moisturising, I personally prefer using it alone as I feel it makes my foundation look better and last longer .

It costs £9.99 for 20g which I feel is a little pricy for a Drugstore product. Whilst it’s a good product I don’t think I’d purchase this product due to the price.



Top 5 Drugstore Eyebrow Products

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.

Drugstore Eyebrow Products

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.

What’s your favourite brow product?

B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub

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.

B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub

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.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Cream Review

Hey everyone,

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.

Makeup Revolution Strobe Cream

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.

Revolution Strobe Cream

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.

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.

Makeup Revolution Solid Brush Cleaner

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.

used makeup brushes

clean makeup brushes

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 and if you have a bar of soap already at home then it will do the same job.

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!

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!
