REVIEW: PROFUSION FESTIVAL PALETTE | Ultimate colour palette?

Well hello there!
This palette was gifted to me by Profusion.co.uk (thank you so much) and I thought it would be perfect for me to do a review on this palette as it could either be the palette of your dreams or your nightmare!
(my review is going to be all truth and not changed because it was gifted to me)
It has all the colours you will ever want so perfect right?
Well keep on reading to find out..




Where to buy: You can buy this palette at the Profusion UK website HERE

Price: £15 (bargain)



Pigmentation-
Mattes: The mattes have a very decent pigment. The shade range for the mattes is great because you can create such a variety or looks.
Shimmer:The shimmers have a weird texture. You dunk your finger in and they feel very buttery and creamy which ain't such a bad thing at all! You have to kind of smudge your finger in them to get a excellent pigment payoff but who cares it works and they are stunning!



Blending Quality: The blending quality of these eyeshadows especially the mattes is actually brilliant. They blend into each other easily without any issues and I don't seem to have any trouble with patchiness from the shadows.



Colour pay off: I used the Makeup Revolution Cut Crease Canvas as my primer so I could get the best of the colours. They came out really well using a sticky primer.

Fall out: I have had a tiny problem with fall out but in my opinion I couldn't care less if the pigment is good then who cares about a little fallout.. NOT ME! The payoff is worth a tiny bit of fall out.

FINAL VERDICT

My overall opinion of this palette is that is 100% worth £15!
I reach for this palette more than I do my more expensive colour palettes like Beautybay and Morphebrushes which is obviously saying something.

I do recommend you try this palette for yourself and just have fun with it! Use a sticky primer on the lid and just go crazy with all the gorgeous colourful shades.
You could even create a rainbow!

REVIEW: PEACHES AND CREAM LASHES & REVLON LASH GLUE

Hello lovelies!
I kindly got sent these Peaches and Cream lashes from falseeyelashes.co.uk to review and they kindly also sent me the Revlon false lash glue.
The lovely woman asked me what kind of eyelashes I tend to wear and what I would prefer to review and I told her I like to wear wispy lashes so she send me these 3 to review.

If you're interested in seeing what these look like on the eye and what I thought of the them and the lash glue them please keep reading...


Each set of lashes are very different as you can see. I can't actually say what my favourite pair is but I can say which ones fitted my eye shape better and what eyelashes looked better on my face.

No. 13 lashes were the ones I first tried and I absolutely loved them to a T! They are more or less the same exact style lashes I usually go for because I like the wispy style as it seems to suit my eye looks that I do. The band on these are really thin and so easy to apply. They stayed on the eyes so easily and didn't fly off and I didn't even have too reapply lash glue all night!! But we will talk about the lash glue a little down this blog post.

No. 06 lashes are still quite wispy but more dramatic than the 13's. They worked so well with a dark dramatic eyeshadow look that I use for nights out so these are the ones I've been using for recently when I want my eyes to be the main focus. The band on these are a bit thicker than the 13's but still easy to apply. I had to cut them down to fit my eyes otherwise the inner corner would keep flicking up all night and us eye lash lovers know how irritating that can be! I still didn't have to reapply eyelash glue with these either which just shows how good the band on the lashes are and how already curved they are to fit your eye shape easily.

No. 08 lashes are the big wispy drama llama lashes that you will ever want!
I found these to be a little too big for my eyes so I had to trim them down but even then they took over my eye lids so you couldn't see the eyeshadow look I created. I think these lashes would be perfect for people with big eye spaces or even if you just love big thick wispy lashes then these are definitely for you.
I will still wear these but more for my crazy instagram looks and not for my nights out because of how big they are. I think they are perfect for the Insta creative look and that's why I am going to keep using them.

LASH GLUE
The lash glue is the Revlon..... and it is bloody amazing! Its a black glue so it makes my life a lot easier as I don't have to wait for it to go clear and dry when its usually a white one. My eyelashes stayed on all day using this product and I can honestly say I recommend this lash glue so much and I will be purchasing this once I've ran out!

You can buy these lashes here..
No. 13
No. 06
No. 08

I hope you have enjoyed this post as much as I had writing it!
I loved receiving these lashes and having fun trying them out and seeing which ones I preferred.

REVIEW: REVOLUTION CUT CREASE CANVAS

Hello there!
This is a review all about the Revolution Beauty cut crease canvas eyeshadow base.
I bought this with such high expectations and excitement.. has it lived up to what I thought? Keep on reading to find out..



Price: £6! So blooming cheap

Shade Range: Illustrate, Halo, Etch, Create (I bought Illustrate).

Purpose: It's to be used as an eyeshadow base and also to cut the lid for a cut crease or a halo eye or basically whatever you want. 

Applicator: I wasn't keep on the applicator because it was completely submerged and covered in the product so it was going all over my eyelashes and then my eyelashes were touching my crease so it ruined my eye look. However that can be fixed by wiping off any excess product or using another brush to apply it to your eye instead of using its own applicator. That seems to defeat the purpose but it makes less mess so you don't create a mess on your eye.

Formula: I found the formula to be just like a concealer. To cut my crease usually I use my collection lasting perfection concealer but I wanted to try an actual eyeshadow base and the formula seems quite similar apart from the Revolution base was a bit thicker and more dewy so when I applied the shimmer eyeshadow over top it went clumpy and didn't dry so nice so I recommend to properly dab the base in with a flat brush or your finger to dry it more so when you apply the eyeshadow it doesn't crease or clump up.

Coverage: I would definitely say it is full coverage so thats a plus.

Overall Opinion

Overall I probably will still use my Collection Lasting Perfection to cut my crease and apply shimmer shadows over top because it just works for me so well and dries down faster than the Revolution base however I definitley think I will give the Revolution Base more of a chance because I think if I proper dry it down and pat it into my eye then it wont be as dewy and eyeshadows over top will apply much better.

I recommend for £6 you give this a go yourself for sure!

Here is where you can buy..

REVIEW: OBSESSION PRODUCTS | Isn't it peachy, Give me some sun & Be obsessed with palettes.

Hello there lovely's!
I hope you are well and excited for Christmas! I am in no where near prepared or even started my shopping for Christmas so i'm excited but also in panic mode 24/7!
I picked up these palettes from my local Boots and they were on 3 for 2 so all these 3 cost me was £12! I mean "JESUS LORD YES A BARGAIN".
So if you're interested in what I think of these palettes and want to see some swatches then just keep on reading...


ISN'T IT PEACHY

This palette comes with 4 blush shades called Glimmer, Daydream, Hint and Bloom.
Glimmer is a shimmer blush and the rest are matte shades.
Daydream is a pale peach shade (my favourite).
Hint is more of a deep orange shade which would be good for deeper skin tones.
Bloom is a typical pink blush shade.

The matte blushes are incredibly pigmented so you literally need to dip your brush in the tiniest bit otherwise your cheeks are gonna be so effing rosy! (unless that's how you like it then that's perfectly fine).
The shimmer blush is beautiful also! Can be used as a blush and a subtle highlight.
I never have used blushers before but I use the shade Daydream everyday now! I love it.

GIVE ME SOME SUN

This palette comes with 4 shades for contouring and bronzing.
Delta is a very shimmery shade.
Buff is a matte contour shade.
Expose is a very sheer shimmer contour/bronze.
Rays is a bronze shade.

I use the shade Rays for bronzing and warming up my face and then the shade Buff to contour and chisel out my face.

BE OBSESSED

This palette comes with 10 gorgeous eyeshadows!
It comes with 8 matte shades and 2 shimmer shades which is a white shimmer and a gold shimmer.
I find the eyeshadows not to be extremely pigmented but they are definitely build-able and that's why I really like them and why i'm going to be buying more of Obsessions eyeshadow palettes!

Here is a look I created with this palette..



I hope you liked this review and I hope you buy and try some Obsession products yourself! I am a new fan of Obsession and cannot wait to buy and review more products!

REVIEW: PROFUSION MIXED METALS PALETTE! & SHIMMER/GLITTER PIGMENTS!

Hey hey there!
I absolutely love Profusion but that doesn't mean I wont give my complete honest and genuine opinion of their products. If I love them you're going to know and if I dislike them you are also going to know.

So if you're interested in finding out what I think about this gorgeous looking palette and the pigments then just keep reading..


MIXED METALS PALETTE - Amber £8.50

This palette comes with 9 beautiful shades with 3 shimmer shades and 6 matte shades. It comes with a HUGE mirror which is really good for travelling and just makes life easier when using the palette.
The shadows don't swatch very well but on the eyes they work really well!
The mattes blend out with each other really nicely and they have a standard pigment so they aren't too harsh straight away but you can build them up which I prefer so you can avoid making mistakes. The shimmer shades are very sheer however when you use a eyeshadow base, primer or concealer on the lid.. OH MY LORD the shimmer shades show up really beautifully when they have something to stick too.

Here is a look I created..

LOOSE SHIMMER/GLITTER PIGMENTS - £12.50

This came with 6 gorgeous pigments with 1 out of the 6 being a silver glitter, a flat fluffy brush and a 12ml of 'Pigment Adhesive' which works really well for these pigments to properly stick too.

The pigments are so gorgeous. They really are shimmery and for the price that they are the quality is unbelievable!

The pigment colours are a copper, a cream with silver glitter, a silver, a pink champagne, a gold and a silver chunky glitter.
Totally recommend these pigments as you get so much product in the bottles and for the price you cannot go wrong! The pigment adhesive is brilliant and works so well with these pigments in particular.

REVIEW: REVOLUTION BEAUTY NEW SKINCARE RANGE

Helloooo there!
This blog post is all about obviously Makeup Revolution because I am obsessed with them and have been for so damn long!
They have came out recently with a new skincare range full of serums and oils to help benefit different skin problems such as blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles etc.. 
I have bought 3 as they were the main ones I wanted and plus lots of them were out of stock so here's a review of the ones I bought...


GOLD ELIXIR Rosehip Seed Oil - £10.00
(Helps condition skin & even skin texture)
I think this skin oil feels lovely on the skin! 
I sometimes use it on a night and I add a couple of drops to my moisturiser to hydrate my skin over night because sometimes my skin after a rubbish day feels a little dry and de-hydrated once ive washed my makeup off so it really does help moisturise it overnight.
I also sometimes use it as a primer before my foundation to give it my skin once the foundation is on more of a glow. This would be good to mix in with a foundation that is too matte as it would make it more dewy on the skin.
This oil doesn't feel to oily on the skin at all and has gorgeous gold flecks that does honestly make the skin glow like a goddess.
You can buy this HERE


10% MATRIXYL SERUM - £10.00
(Helps reduce the look of fine lines & wrinkles)
I am a big fan of this serum! 
I may be and look silly because i'm only 21 without wrinkles and fine lines BUT I would like to keep it that way for as long as possible. I want to start looking after my skin now with whatever I can and for this price I couldn't help myself!
This feeling of this serum is perfect in my opinion. It doesn't feel oily or watery its kind of a perfect in-between. It sets onto the skin really nicely and isn't drying. I honestly will be buying this again as soon as i'm finished.
10/10 recommend!
You can buy this HERE

QUINOA  NIGHT PEEL £8.00
(Helps boost skin radiance)
I use this product right before bed before I put on my moisturiser because I have quite textured skin where my acne has been and just from having combination skin in general. It claims to help take the rough skin away and give your skin a 'new skin' glow and the first time using it I really noticed the next morning my skin felt really smooth and my skins texture and colour is actually getting better from this product. 
I really do recommend this product but I do recommend to only use it a couple of times a week so it doesn't make your skin overly sensitive as I could imagine it might.
You can buy this product HERE


I hope you liked this blog post and I can't wait to try more of Makeup Revolutions skincare range and once payday comes around I will be buying more!
