I Heart Revolution has branched out into bath and skincare as well as releasing new makeup products every other week.
I ordered three of the bath bomb fizzers when they were first released and have just got around to testing out the Mermaid Splash one.
The bath bombs retail for £3 each and come in a range of different scents. The Mermaid Splash fizzer is supposed to have an ‘aquatic’ scent but I didn’t really notice much of a scent to it.
For the price I wasn’t expecting Lush quality but I was disappointed that it didn’t change the water a different colour like it says it does and the glitter was minimal and instantly clung to the side of the bath.
Personally I feel like I Heart Revolution have missed the mark with their bath products as their makeup is always great quality.
Revolution has recently launched its Halloween 2018 collection and I for one could not wait to pick up some pieces.
Beautiful Darkness retails for £6 and features a mixture of gorgeous shimmers and mattes. Can we all take a moment to appreciate the spooky packaging?
Something ‘new’ I’ve noticed about the layout of this palette is the larger pans for the transition and matte highlighter shade which a lot of people will appreciate.
Out of 12 shades there are only 4 shimmers but they are absolutely stunning when applied with your finger, I tried with a wet brush but it didn’t pay off as nicely.
My absolute favourite shade is Dead Rose, my swatches don’t do this palette justice but it is a gorgeous Red shimmer. Poison is also a gorgeous green/brown shimmer whereas Corrupted is a beautiful gold that needs building up.
The back of the box on my palette did have a few spelling mistakes for the shade names but that isn’t really an issue for me and might have been from a bad batch but it really doesn’t effect the palette overall.
As always the shadows are pigmented, buildable and had no fallout for me.
This palette is cruelty free, Vegan friendly and currently 3 for 2 on Superdrug.
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!
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.
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.
Hey everyone, this months Superdrug Blog Squad parcel is all goodies from Revolution and Revolution Pro which I can’t wait to test out. Take a peak over on Instagram to keep up with what reviews will be coming up.
First of all how stunning is the packaging? This is the relatively new launch Renaissance Flick felt eyeliner which retails for £5. I don’t tend to use eyeliner as much as I used to but I would pick a felt pen over kohl pencils anyway.
The nib is very slim so helps with creating precise wings and glides on without dragging across the eye, it is very black which is a bonus and dries quickly. It is not runny in the slightest and is super easy to use which is great for me as I’m not brilliant at applying eyeliner, the pen is also comfortable to hold.
I wouldn’t say it is fully budge-proof as I wore it for around 6-7 hours and I could see it was starting to come away on the wings and if I rubbed it then it would look like it was crumbling off but it was a hot day so that could be why.
You can layer this eyeliner without it appearing patchy which I have had in the past with felt eyeliners and because the nib is so small you can get really close to the lash line.
This eyeliner is vegan friendly and cruelty free and definitely a bargain at £5!
Revolution formally known as Makeup Revolution has launched a brand new nudes lip collection consisting of four mattes, four metallics and four glosses. This review is about two of the new matte shades.
I love nude liquid lipsticks with a matte finish so I opted for On Display and Stripped although all of the shades do look stunning.
All of the shades cost £3 each! I’ve always loved that Revolution is so affordable and offer good quality products for such a low cost.
I love both of these shades and can’t decide which one I prefer, Stripped is a softer brown nude whereas On Display is deeper and has more of a burnt orange undertone on me.
They haven’t dried down fully on my swatches but they don’t take too long to do so either. If you have dry lips then it will pick up on these areas, however, it is comfortable on the lips and doesn’t feel too drying.
The applicators are so easy to use, especially if you aren’t using a lip liner! The shape is different to the previous liquid lipsticks in the lip kits but I much prefer the newer wands.
Overall I’m really pleased with the longevity of these lipsticks, they just don’t budge! They are super affordable, pigmented and come in a great range of shades and finishes. I much prefer this newer range of liquid lipsticks formula over previous ones produced by Makeup Revolution.
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.
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.
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 and if you have a bar of soap already at home then it will do the same job.
