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.

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter review

When it comes to highlighting, contouring and the like, I am a self-confessed novice. However, I am improving and one day I may just get there!

While looking to improve these skills and thus intensely browsing for an affordable (and pretty pink) highlighter, I came across this Makeup Revolution beauty.

The Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Moon Glow Lights is a strobe highlighter and it is perfect for illuminating the face alongside, or instead of contouring.

Now, do be warned that due to the Vivid Baked Highlighter being a strobe highlighter, this means that it offers a subtle shimmer. If you are looking for an intense and defined look, you may want to look elsewhere.

So, how do I feel about the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter?

Saying this, you can indeed build on and continuously layer this product if you so choose. Makeup Revolution¬†says,¬†“capture the light with our strobe highlighters… the light powder gives a natural illumination to the skin by diffusing the light. Can be applied both wet or dry for different intensities and very buildable.”

The beauty of this highlighter is that it can literally be used all over your face, and it is¬†perfect for strobing. For a defined glow I tend to use it under my brow bone, diagonally across my cheekbones and atop my cupid’s bow.

My only vice with this product falls down to the packaging, already the print appears to be wearing away (probably due to my constant use no doubt). Other than that, this is my new beauty staple for whenever I need a subtle go-to glow.

Beautiful Brows Kit Before and After

Beautiful Brows Kit review

Beautiful Brows¬†is a cosmetic company with the right ideals, knowing eyebrows to be ‘one of your most important assets’. A statement I agree with wholeheartedly.

The are dedicated to giving their customers the perfect eyebrow shape, definition and colour, manufacturing high quality and exclusive products for eyebrow maintenance and care. Something I believe to be essential to do as to frame the face and feel great!

The Beautiful Brows Kit* is their most popular product, an essential kit for any woman that contains the following items:

Beautiful Brows Kit Exterior

So, what did I think of the BEAUTIFUL BROWS KIT?

  • Eyebrow powder¬†– The powder is highly pigmented and does not crumble with use, giving a lovely rich colour with every use.
  • Three eyebrow shapes¬†– The shapes are sleek, natural and bold reusable stencils to create your desired look, I opted for bold as I have quite naturally large eyebrows and wanted to maintain my own shape. These stencils give you the option to vary your look as you see fit and are each noticeably different in size.
  • Duo applicator brush¬†– This labelled brush has a small and firm angled end and a soft rounded to create definition. I used the angled end first and the rounded afterwards to ensure even coverage across my brow.
  • Eyebrow highlighter¬†– The highlighter is a soft and neutral shade to make your eyebrows stand out.
  • Highlighter brush¬†– This labelled brush is soft, sweeping the highlighter under the brow to highlight the shape of the brows.
  • Soft grip tweezers¬†– These tweezers are angled and made from stainless steel with a rubber casing to ensure precision when plucking your eyebrows into shape.
  • Magnifying mirror – The mirror is just perfect for doing your eyebrows on the go and contained within the kit.

All the above can be bought separately online and the kit is refillable so you can always keep the compact handy or take items out as you need them during the day! The compact is very sturdy so perfect for those always on the move.

The Beautiful Brows Kit is also offered in a variety of shades to match your eyebrows to your hair perfectly:

Beautiful Brows Kits Pigmented Colours

(Slate – blonde to fair, Light Brown – fair to medium, Dark Brown – medium to dark, Chocolate – dark and Black – black)

I opted for the Dark Brown as a person with auburn and brown hair and believed it to much perfectly, giving enough pigment to make my eyebrows really stand out. It was a good match, and as long as you follow the guide you should easily find your perfect shade for you.

Overall, I find this kit essential, it beats my eyebrow pencil any day and the powder is both long-lasting and wonderfully pigmented!
