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.

Being by Sanctuary Spa Salted Caramel & Macadamia Body Scrub Review

Body scrubs play an important part in any skincare routine and I’m always on the lookout for new ones to try.

I absolutely love Sanctuary Spa so thought I’d give Being a try to see if the sister brand is just as good.

There isn’t much of a scent range to choose from for this brand although they do have a wide range of products such as mask, butters and bath bombs etc…

For £9 you get 250g of the body scrub, mine is Salted Caramel & Macadamia which I have to admit is an interesting choice of scent.

It’s not overpowering with salted caramel definitely coming out on top but I do prefer fruity scents or the classic Sanctuary Spa scent.

The scrub itself had a waxy texture and is that fine you can barely feel it scrub. It did leave my skin feeling smooth but I prefer a deeper scrub which you can feel working.

For £9 I would say it’s more on the pricey side as there are better scrubs on the market you can for a similar price or cheaper.

The brand is cruelty free and a lot of the products are Vegan which I believe this one is.

Superdrug Oat & Coconut Range Review

The new Superdrug Oat & Coconut range is designed for sensitive and dry skin and retails for £5.99.

The products were kindly sent to me to review for the Superdrug Blog Squad.

Superdrug Oat & Coconut Range

The range smells better than I expected as I’m not keen on Aveeno products with the oatmeal scent.

My favourite product is the oil enriched cream, it doesn’t feel greasy and dries down quickly. My partner also used this product on a burn and it cleared it up and made that area less sensitive.

The Daily Lotion also dries down quick and is perfect to use for a light moisturizer.

I am not really a fan of hand creams and I did find this one to be slightly greasy but if you do suffer with dry or cracked skin in the Winter then it may be worth trying. It retails for £4.99.

Overall I do like this range and feel it would be a great alternative to Aveeno for a much more affordable price.

As always with Superdrug it is cruelty free and vegan.

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.

I Heart Revolution Mermaid Bath Fizzer

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.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Review

Hey everyone it’s time for another Kat Von D review with this post focusing on three of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in the shades Nahz Fur Atoo, Exorcism and Crucifix.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

I love the sleek packaging with the rose design, these liquid lipsticks retail for £17 each and come in a wide range of shades.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

I normally wear nude shades but after a lot of Googling lip swatches I settled on the more ‘bolder’ shades Nahz Fur Atoo, Crucifix and Exorcism. I initially only wanted to purchase Exorcism after doing an exchange but they happened to be on a 3 for 2 deal in Debenhams so I couldn’t resist picking up two more.

KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Swatches

My favourite shade is Nahz Fur Atoo which is a gorgeous bright red, they are long lasting like the name suggests and once dried they don’t transfer when eating or drinking which is always a bonus.

At first I did find them a little tricky to neatly apply without a lip liner but I soon got the hang of it. I have tried using a Revolution Vampire Night lip liner underneath but it didn’t last well throughout the day.

KVD Nahz Fur Atoo Liquid Lipstick

One of the great things about the liquid lipsticks are that you get enough product with one application and don’t need to re-dip into the tube.

They are not drying so comfortable to wear, last all day with the only downside being it can be a pain to remove them sometimes but I would say they are worth the money.

All KVD beauty is vegan and cruelty free!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner Review

Kat Von D beauty has been around for 10 years now with one of the holy grail products being the Tattoo Liner pen, I don’t tend to buy high end products but I have recently picked up some bits from the KVD range.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

The tattoo liner retails for £17 is waterproof, super black and easy to apply.

I love the brand packaging as it makes a statement and is different to what you usually see from brands.

This shade is called Trooper Black which is a deep black eyeliner which is what you want and doesn’t need layering up to get the colour pay off.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

As you can see it has a fine nib which makes it really precise to create your desired look and the pen is comfortable to hold. I am not the best at eyeliner but with this pen it makes it a whole lot easier to create super quick wings.

Whilst the pen is waterproof and doesn’t smudge it is easily removed with makeup wipes which I was worried about being an issue as some waterproof products take ages to remove.

As a whole I really like this product and believe it is worth the hype!

Revolution Pro Regeneration Mischief Mattes Palette Review

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. Revolution Pro Mischief Mattes PaletteFirst 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!

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.
