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.

I Heart Makeup Blushing Hearts: Peachy Pink Kisses Review


I Heart Makeup Blushing Hearts come in a great range of shades and products, currently you can get blushers, highlighters and bronzers for a price point of £4.99. I only own the shade Peachy Pink Kisses at present but I would buy more from this collection.

Blushing Hearts Peachy Pink Kisses

First of all how cute is the packaging? It does come with an outer box but I threw mine away. The shades are super shimmery, pigmented and can be applied separately or you can swirl your brush over all 3.

The blusher container as well is quite large and will last a while, it’s definitely a bargain at £4.99. The packaging is just cardboard packaging hence the low price.

Peachy Pink Kisses Swatches

The shades are buildable but due to the high amount of shimmer they’d work just as well, if not better as highlighting shades depending on your own preferences. If you aren’t really into shimmer products then this won’t be for you.  

The peachy colours are great and make a nice change from the standard pink blushers on the market. It’s the perfect shade for the summer or to take on holiday.

I personally found it is easier to remove with micellar water over face wipes.

Currently you can buy the Blushing Hearts range from Superdrug and TamBeauty.com

Makeup Revolution Matte Lip Kits Review


Liquid Lipsticks are more popular than ever thanks to Kylie Jenner, for those of us in the UK the Kylie Jenner make up range isn’t as accessible to get without paying a large custom charge and of course it’s really popular and sells out fast!

Makeup Revolution has thankfully brought out a wide range of colour dupes with their Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit collection which retail at £6.

Makeup Revolution Lip Kits

This is my first experience using a liquid lipstick so naturally I went for the Nude shades, Echelon is a brown toned nude and Reign is a pink toned nude. I’m not sure why but my boxes do not match each other in terms of text layout… It doesn’t really bother me it just seems odd.

One thing I know people have commented on with these products is that the shade on the box doesn’t match the actually shade inside and I can agree with that so if in doubt always swatch first!

Revolution Lip KitRevolution Liquid Lip Kits

The lip kit contains the liquid lipstick and a lip liner, the lip liners do not match the lipsticks perfectly, however, it isn’t blatantly obvious when the product is on the lips and blended together.  The liquid lipstick as you can see just has your standard lip gloss wand.

Makeup Revolution Lip Kit Swatches

I found the lip liners creamy, very pigmented and glided on, however, my lip liner for Echelon has quite a wobbly tip and looks like it might break so I don’t know if mines just badly made or if they aren’t sturdy in general…

The liquid lipsticks are also very pigmented, comfortable to wear and last throughout the day, they don’t transfer and aren’t drying which is always a bonus.

I absolutely love both colours but Echelon is my favourite of the two!

I would recommend these lip kits if you’re after a matte lip product that lasts throughout the day without needing to re-apply your lipstick. For £6 you can’t go wrong unless you don’t swatch the product first as you may end up with a different colour to what you wanted.

You can purchase these from Tambeauty.com or from Superdrug

*Update: my Echelon Lip Liner has since broken inside the lid and I’ve barely used, they can be sharpened but mine was damaged beyond repair.

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2


Highlight delight, the sell-out MUR palette you must get your hands on!

If you’re in need of a palette which houses bronzer, blusher and highlighter all in one then look no further than the Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold palette by the brilliant Makeup Revolution. The affordable palette retails at just £6 and contains 8 shades to choose from.

golden-sugar-2

The products are quite pigmented and can be built upon to reach your desired look. (the palette looks so much better in reality)

Whilst the bronzer shade on the bottom row (second from the right) initially scared me to start with I found that it made a great eye-shadow shade, I don’t really wear bronzer much myself but others may love it.

The majority of the shades are shimmery, the only exceptions being the two matte bronzers on the end which are good shades for contouring. Unfortunately my Iphone isn’t the best at capturing how great these shades actually are.  

Whilst the palette has sold out on Superdrug it can be found at Tambeauty which is the new home of the former Makeup Revolution website.

This is the first palette ive owned by MUR which wasn’t eye shadows and im really impressed with it overall.

I Heart Makeup: I Heart Chocolate Pink Fizz Palette


Introducing the I Heart Makeup I Heart Chocolate Pink Fizz palette (what a mouthful!). As you may know I Heart Makeup brand is the sister company to Makeup Revolution who I absolutely love so and as a first timer to I Heart Makeup I thought I’d give the Pink Fizz palette a try. 

I Heart MakeupThe packaging is quite cute and looks like a half melted chocolate bar and it is said that the I Heart Chocolate palettes are a dupe for the Too Faced Chocolate Bars as well.

I Heart Makeup Pink Fizz

Top row: Champers, Drink, Flute, Sparkling, Toast

Middle row: Bubbles, Girl, Party, Elegant, Celebrate, Truffle

Bottom row: Rosy, Cork, Pop, France, Pink Fizz

There are 16 shades included, 3 matter and 13 shimmery as well as the long eye shadow applicator but personally I prefer brushes. I have found that the shimmery pinks such as Party and Rosy needed quite a bit of build up but if you have a  eye primer on hand then you may not have this problem.

Pink Fizz Swatch
Middle Row Swatches

I’ve included one swatch photo of the middle row purely because its my preferred colours and im also really bad at photos when it comes to light shades!

I like this palette but I prefer the offerings of Makeup Revolution and will probably stick to them in the future as I cant resist their 32 shade palettes!

Have you tried any of the I Heart Chocolate palettes?
