Makeup Revolution Blush Queen palette The LDN Gal 1

Makeup Revolution Blush Queen palette review

The Makeup Revolution Blush Queen palette is my favorite high street blush palette, for all the right reasons. The appeal of Makeup Revolution is not only the low price, but its variety and amount of beauty products. I am a little obsessed with their blush and eye shadow palettes to say the least.

The Blush Queen palette features eight highly pigmented and baked shades of blush and highlighter, which are the perfect shimmery collection for transitioning from an every day glow to a more defined evening look.

Four shades are neutral, while the remaining prove more vivid and pigmented. Although the shades are not named, it features an array of velvety and marbled nudes, peaches, pinks and rouge.

So, what do I think of the Makeup Revolution Blush Queen palette?

The formulation of these shades are of a good quality for a high street brand and for the price of the palette. What I love about this palette is its simplistic design, it is lightweight, portable and bright. It doesn’t include a mirror to which some may be dissapointed to discover, but lets be honest, they only get covered in powder eventually anyway!

These shades give a wonderful subtle glow that is buildable. I simply adore the fact that the palette features both highlight and blush shades. You can use the highlight to define your cheekbones and the blush upon your cheeks to define your look.

It is slightly unfortunate that this palette does not feature some matte shades, but hey, it can’t have everything! For me, it is a winning combination and well worth adding to your makeup collection.

Measurable Differences Bronzer on Stephanie Mulholland review - The LDN Gal

Measurable Difference Face and Body Bronzer Review

After dancing the night away I awoke and felt pretty shoddy (no hangover thankfully, just pain from wearing my ridiculous high heels and dancing to hip hop for over four hours). After an hours note taking for one of my up-and-coming university essays, I decided to lift my spirits and venture into town to do some shopping. This either means buying makeup, clothes or stationary and sometimes it can be all three, oops.

Thankfully for my bank balance, I went with just makeup and clothes (I got an adorable black embellished playsuit but it is too big on me so must sadly be returned tomorrow) this time. Yet again I purchased all of these items from my beloved TK Maxx, I am in there so often now for beauty products it is verging on ridiculous.

Along with the playsuit, I bought three Hello Kitty lipsticks (I have a scary obsession with the brand, most find it strange) and the Measurable Difference Face & Body Bronzer, which I just adore.

So, how do I feel about the Measurable Difference Face and Body Bronzer?

The ‘bronzer’ is actually not bronzed at all! It is a lovely delicate shade of pink and multi-purpose so “can be worn on the face, legs, and body”. As my Mac Pink Swoon powder blush is on its last legs, I felt this could be the perfect (and less costly) alternative.

I applied the bronzer with my Nanshy blush and bronze brush as advised and found it to subtly added colour, giving me a perfect summer-kidded glow. To create a more defined look, Measurable Difference advises you continue to build upon the colour until you are satisfied.

As I am quite pale I rely on my bronzers and blushers to brighten my complexion and this pigmented bronzer highlighted my face wonderfully, it also leaves your skin with a bit of a shimmer which is always nice, especially on those dull and dreary days.

Look out for it in TK Maxx stores or buy it online here.

What is your favourite bronzer or blusher? Have you used Measurable Difference makeup before?
