Hi guys, I was recently sent a skincare package by Superdrug to review for their Blog Squad. The We Love range has recently expanded and I was excited to receive the pink grapefruit jelly scrub.
I have never used a jelly scrub before but I know that Lush has jelly bath products so maybe Superdrug is trying to appeal to Lush consumers?
First of all this scrub smells amazing! It isn’t too overpowering and offers a gentle scrub which can be used more than once a week, it is a weird consistency but I soon got used to it. If you prefer more of an exfoliating scrub then I wouldn’t recommend this as it isn’t like an ordinary body scrub. I really like this product and I will be repurchasing it when it runs out. It’s super affordable at £4.99 for 200ml and there is a wide range of scents and other skincare bits in this range. The only negative I have is the pot is quite thin plastic so I feel it could crack easily if dropped. As always with Superdrugs own brand it is vegan friendly and cruelty free. #SuperdrugBlogSquad
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.
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.
I love the sleek packaging with the rose design, these liquid lipsticks retail for £17 each and come in a wide range of shades.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
