Revolution Precise Brow Pencil Review

As someone who isn’t too great at filling in their brows I’ve finally managed to find the perfect product and it’s only £3!

The Precise Brow Pencil by Revolution is perfect for filling in sparse brows with its tiny nib and the spoolie comes in handy too.

Currently my eyebrows look patchy where I’m trying to grow them and with this pencil I get a perfect even look which doesn’t take too long to do.

Currently on the Superdrug website you can only get the shades light, medium and dark brown which is pretty poor but maybe you can get more shades in the store?

I love how quick and easy the pencil is to use, it’s super affordable, vegan and cruelty free.

Revolution Mermaid Splash Bath Fizzer Review

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.

I Heart Revolution Mermaid Splash Bath Bomb

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 Beautiful Darkness Palette Review

Revolution has recently launched its Halloween 2018 collection and I for one could not wait to pick up some pieces.

Revolution Beautiful Darkness Palette

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?

Revolution Beautiful Darkness Palette

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.

Revolution Beautiful Darkness Palette Swatches

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.

Revolution Pro Blur Stick Universal Face Primer

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…

Revolution Pro Blur Stick Universal Face Primer

It doesn’t come out with a colour on the face even though it looks like a foundation shade, it did make 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 Pro 4K Highlighter Palette Gold First Impressions

This month I was kindly sent a Revolution Pro bundle to review for the Superdrug Blog Squad. Revolution Pro is I believe the takeover of the Freedom brand.

Revolution Pro 4k Highlighter Palette and Swatches

I was really excited to receive a highlighter palette as who doesn’t love a highlighter? I was surprised to see how ‘bold’ the colours are as I would have associated them with eyeshadows instead of highlighters but they are really gorgeous colours.

For £8 you get four large pans in a cardboard casing which I think makes the palette look quite cheap as I would have preferred a plastic case and you don’t get a mirror.

The colours although they look great when swatched they are rather glittery on the face which I wasn’t a fan of personally, they are pigmented just very heavy on the glitter.

I wouldn’t recommend this as I feel for £8 and even under you can get much better highlighters from the Drugstore. This palette is cruelty free and vegan.

Soph x Revolution Lipsticks

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.

Soph x Revolution Lipstick Swatches

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.

Currently these are only available online!

Soph x Revolution Extra Spice Palette + Swatches

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.

Soph x Revolution Extra Spice Palette

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.

Soph x Revolution Extra Spice SwatchesSoph x Revoluion Extra Spice Swatches 2Soph x Revolution Extra Spice Swatches 3

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.  

Revolution Renaissance Flick Eyeliner Review

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. 

Revolution Renaissance Eyeliner tip

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!

e.l.f Lock on Liner and Brow Cream Review

This month I was kindly sent an e.l.f package by Superdrug to review so to kick things off I thought I’d review the Lock on Liner and Brow Cream. I was kindly sent the shade Medium Brown which is perfect for me as I have medium-dark brown hair, on the Superdrug website there was only one other shade which was called Expresso so if you have light eyebrows you may need to search the store for your shade or order off the e.l.f website.

e.l.f Lock on Liner and Brow Cream Medium Brown

I have tested this purely as a brow cream as I don’t really wear eyeliner but it is very creamy and pigmented. I found on my brows it looked more of a darker brown than medium so if you have light-medium brows then this will probably be too dark for you as it doesn’t really match the shade in the pot once applied.

I have only used one other brow cream which is by the now discontinued Freedom range but you can still get brow creams from Revolution, I found this e.l.f one to be much easier to use and if I’d had this first I probably wouldn’t have tried the Freedom one.

The formula is very creamy so you only need a small amount on your brush, it also doesn’t budge or smudge which is always a bonus for your brows and would be a great eyeliner if you wanted a brown liner instead of black.

It is a more pigmented cream so I would say it is better for ‘Instagram’ brows rather than natural looking brows but if you did want natural looking brows you could probably get away with being very sparse with the product.

It only costs £5 so is super affordable and worth giving a try and would be a great alternative to the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomades. e.l.f is also cruelty free and suitable for Vegans.

Watch out for more e.l.f beauty reviews!

Revolution Nudes Collection: On Display and Stripped Liquid Lipsticks

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.

Revolution Stripped and On Display

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.

Revolution On Display and Stripped Swatches

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.

Revolution Applicators Stripped and On Display

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. 

Revolution Liquid Lipstick 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.
