Makeup revolution bare euphoria palette

Hello everybody. !!! 

Today i have a quick review on the Makeup Revolution Euphoria palette in bare.            

It comes with 6 eyeshadows, a bronzer, a highlight, and a blush. All in a black compact sturdy plastic case. It does come with a double ended sponge tip applicator for the eye shadows. You are really set for the day with this palette. And lucky for me , I got it at half price thats 3 £. 

  

As you see, all eye shadows lean towards rosy tones. But it completes the look and gets the job done by providing a highlight colour (first 2 ) crease and lid colours( 3, 4, 5) and outer v colour( 6) . 

  

The bronzer is matte whatsoever. So come in handy even for contouring since it isnt orangy. The highlight has a pearly sheen and the blish has tiny gold reflects as you can see in the pan. But it does come out subtle on the cheeks. 

  

I was really hoping for the darker colour to be a little more pigmented. Thats my only con with this palette. Rest all the colours are beautiful, blend well and are smooth. 

 

The less pigmentation of the 6th colour was made up by the bronzer, highlighter and blush. They have amazing pigmentation, smooth and buttery texture. The bronzer in particular is very smooth to a point where I felt it will start to crumble of. 

This palette is definitely for someone looking to minimize space in their makeup bag. I mean it isnt a must have but for the bucks its a win. It surely comes in handy while traveling. 

I hope you enjoyed my review. 

Until next time, 

Much love 🙂 🙂 🙂 

Essence gorgeous glow palette

 When it comes to affordable products, essence is really putting up the notch. They are one of the best affordable brands and personally I love it. 

With the bronzing babe palette, I bought this face palette – gorgeous glow.     

This is like a life saver palette. I have been seeing a lot of contouring and highlighting and many companies are releasing many of their versions. This is a great edition if your just starting out into contouring or bronzing and highlighting. 

  

As you see, it comes with a matte bronzer, a highlighter and a blush. 

  

The bronzer is not too orange but just a beautiful matte one perfect on those beautiful cheeks. 

  

My favourite is the highlighter which is free of chunky glitter or shimmer. Its just a pearly champagney sheen. It sits beautifully on top of the blush that comes in this palette. 

  

This is like my perfect corally pinky blush for the summers. Although I may say this to a dozen other blushes 😉 The best part – no shimmers or glitters !! 

 

The pigmentation as well is great. It blends beautifully. All three of them work in great harmony and I am very impressed and happy with my purchase. It retails for 3.45€ .I have used it quite a lot during my travel. It fits perfectly in my makeup bag. 

I hope you liked my review!! 

Until then, much love 🙂 🙂 🙂 

I ❤️ makeup Tripple baked blush, bronzer and highlighter

Helloo everybody !!!
Today I have a review on the makeup revolution I ❤ makeup tripple baked blush, bronzer and highlighter. I got one from each.
I had an instant love with these when I first saw them on the site and on other blogs. They are so damn adorable and cute. They were the first producs I had put in the cart.

  From left- Blushing hearts in peachy pink kisses, Summer of love bronzer in Hot summer of love, Goddess of love highlighter in Golden Goddess Packaging-They come in a cardboard heart shaped box. I will not lie I bought them first for their packaging. They are definitely only for your vanity and not travel friendly.  If I am not wrong, these are exact dupes for the Too faced sweetheart blushes. But Makeup Revolution is known for making similar products which seem to be a rage in the beauty world for they offer amazing products at a very affordable price.
Price– 4.99 £


♥Goddess of Love highlighter- Golden Goddess♥


This is a champange golden colour highlighter with tiny flecks of golden sparkles which are not visible once applied. The texture is smooth and blends evenly. It does accentuate large pores but with a light hand, it gives a very nice sheen to the skin. You seriously need a light hand. A little bit goes a long way. Its an amazing highlighter for warm tone skin. 

 


  ♥Summer of Love bronzer- Hot Summer of Love♥   There are three different shades in his bronzer and below in the swatch you can see it blended. I love this bronzer since it doesn’t have any gritty shimmers. It just has a nice sheen which gives a subtle bronzed glow to the skin. Its a great summer product to have.    From left- All three shades swatched and last swatch all three colours blended


♥Blushing Hearts- Peachy Pink Kisses♥
   Three different shades of a nice peachy pink colour. This blush too has a subtle sheen and I found that on my skin tone, it can even be used as a highlighter especially the first shade.   From left All three shades swatched and last blended swatch


Pigmentation as you see is great. No too much product is needed especially the bronzer.
I found these products to work the best with a dense brush since it picks up most of the product. They blend out well and don’t look patchy or overly done.
Staying power– These stay put for 4-5 hours after which a it starts fading leaving a shine behind.
Overall All three of them are of amazing quality. I am really impressed with the actual product and quality. The packaging is a bit of too much and it will be difficult to stash it in the bag. Nonetheless, Good work makeup revolution for giving such a pretty and good quality products which don’t burn a hole in the pocket. So girls on a budget, these are a must have.
♥♥♥
I hope you liked my review.
Have an amazing day lovlies!!!

Catrice nude purism review 

hey beauties !

How has everyone’s week started ?
Recently I did a massive drugstore haul and will be sharing my reviews on them.
Today I will be reviewing some products from Catrice nude purism limited edition collection.
I had an amazing time testing out everything.. I dint even wait to reach home and opened and started swatching some of he blushes right in the car .. excitement !!

So most of the products from the haul were a complete hit as far as first impressions.. I will be reviewing rest of them in my upcoming posts 🙂

Coming back to this post-
Without further ado..  here are my thoughts-

NUDE EYE COLOUR QUATTRO IN TAUPE LESS

swatches clockwise from L-R

swatches clockwise from L-R

Product Description-
Neutrals. There are two convincing versions with four trendy nude colours each: sand, rosé and coffee are complemented by a cool light blue; taupe, pale pink and soft pink are accompanied by a dark aubergine. Both clusters of four contain matt as well as silky-shimmering shades that can be combined to create an expressive eye make-up look with fabulous shading. The smooth textures are long-lasting, offer maximum coverage and are easy to apply.

Price– € 4,49
Packaging– I have always loved catrice packaging. They come in a transparent acrylic case. It doesn’t feel cheap but it sturdy and travel friendly. The transparent case makes it easy to identify the colours. Personally I really find he packaging chic and classy.

Pigmentation and Texture-
They texture of these eye shadows are smooth as butter. They are equally very well pigmented and blends like a dream. The swatches are not doing justice to the actual product but let me assure you they are pigmented.

All 4 shades are well co-ordinated and apt for day-time looks.
FullSizeRender (11)

I dont know why the camera dint capture well. but roughly I have 1st colour from left in the crease, darkest shade in outer v and 3rd shade on the lid .
They perform well without a primer and of course with a primer it will extend the longevity of the shadows.

Overall its an amazing product considering the price and quality of the shadows. I will definitely be purchasing more quads in future as they are some of the best drugstore options in my opinion.


Next product I bought is
PURE SHIMMER HIGHLIGHTER
IMG_6959

Product description-
Skin Couture. The most beautiful (under)statement of this edition is a true eye-catcher: the Pure Shimmer Highlighter. The attractive 3D relief structure of the ultra-silky pressed powder is reminiscent of a softly shimmering honeycomb. Finely graded nude and light-reflecting pigments set subtle highlights on your face and neckline.

Price- € 4,49
Pigmentation and Texture-
This shimmer powder is champagney coloured, finely milled highlighter. It has that beautiful honey comb design.
The texture is a bit powdery at first but blends in the skin very nicely.
The pigmentation is also decent.
It is not that ‘one swipe’ highlighter ; you will have to build up to the required pigmentation.
But nevertheless, its is a very nice highlighter since it doesn’t contain any chunky shimmer particles. It gives a nice sheen and glow to the face.

A great drugstore option for the price and quality.


Lastly I bought 2 of their nail polishes

L-R Pure blue, barely pink

L-R Pure blue, barely pink

Product description- 
Pure Perfection. Coffee, rosé, taupe and cool light blue are welcoming the spring season and are a perfect match for the new nude shades of the designer dresses. The Nude Nail Lacquer promises ultimate colours – with and without effects – ultimate coverage and ultimate shine, which is sure to turn these limited shades into the must-haves of the season.
Price– € 2,49 approx
Texture, Brush and Quality
Frankly speaking, I have a love and hate relationship with these nail polishes.
The brush is a flat rounded brush which makes it easy to apply the colour.
What  love about them are their colours. baby pink and baby blue. perfect for spring summer. They dry fast as well.
What I don’t like about them is their texture. You have to apply 2 coats for desired level of pigmentation. First coat applies very streaky and patchy. When you apply the second coat, it still doesn’t look even, it still looks a bit patchy.
I have heard good reviews about their nail polishes, but these I would definitely pass on.

barely pink

barely pink

I forgot to take picture of the blue one .


Final verdict
I am really impressed with the eye shadow quad and the highlighter. i would definetly purchase more of their eye shadows coz they have some amazing pigmentation. Even their singles are of amazing quality.

Hope you enjoyed my review.
Have a wonderful day lovlies!!
