Make Up Revolution

Hello my Loves!

So I’m really late to the whole Make Up Revolution craze and after reading up on some of the products I chose my favourites from the range.

The first problem though was which ones to buy. In an ideal world I would have bought everything but I really am trying to cut down on the amount of make up that I buy (ha ha) so I decided to be good and get just 1 eyeshadow palette and 1 blush palette.

The first product I chose was the Ultra Blush and Contour Palette in Hot Spice

As you can see the palette comes with 8 beautiful shades & also a very large mirror which is always a plus! These shades can be used as blushes & also to highlight & contour which is amazing!

As you can see some shades are more shimmery than others. They also included a pretty highlight which is almost a pinky frost & then a very shimmery pinky peach shade as well. There are a mix of mattes, satins and shimmers in this palette which is definitely a great variety for everyone!

The second product I chose was the Iconic 3 eyeshadow palette.

I have to admit I am very impressed with the shadows in this palette.  This palette comes with 4 matte shades which I know I am very pleased with as its great to see matte shades amongst shimmers.  It saves so much time have all in one 🙂

When I first got this palette and tried the shades I was initially disappointed with the pigmentation and texture, however after very gently scraping the surface of each shade, they have all been completely transformed. I am just so impressed with the quality, and with a primer worn underneath they last for at least 6 hours without fading or creasing. I would recommend this palette to anyone.. or just Makeup Revolution in general. Their products are all so affordable and really do rival products upto 10 times the price in terms of quality and diverse shade ranges.
What are your thoughts on make up revolution.

MAC Ramblin’ Rose

Ramblin Rose
Ramblin’ Rose is described as a pink-peachy frost. This isn’t a new shade yet since Rose Gold has become so popular I find myself reaching for this colour more and more. As it does fit perfectly with this trend.
What MAC Says: Excellent colour payoff with medium to high frosted shimmer-and-shine finish
This lipstick is the exact shade, I would imagine Nars orgasm would be if they bought out a lipstick in the shade. Its a pinky/peachy shade with  a strong golden shimmer. The lipstick its self appears to have a really strong deep rose pink to it. Yet when the lipstick is applied the strongest colour is without doubt the golden shimmer. The shade has tiny flecks of gold in it so appears quite coral on the lips.
The mix of all these warm tones is extremely flattering to all skin tones.The frosted formula gives a strong shimmery finish to the lipstick. I think looks beautiful but is particularly unforgiving on dry lips and highlights any creases and lines on your lips.
The frost lipsticks by MAC do tend to be not as well long lasting as there other formulas, it did last for a good few hours though. When the rose colour has worn off the your lips are left with a slight golden shimmer.
I love this shade for anytime of year and is lovely finish that reminds me alot of a gloss yet without the sticky feeling. I would definitely repurchase but would advise making sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized before applying to make the most of the beautiful sheen.
Have you tried this shade? Do you like the Frost finish of this lipstick? Which MAC lipsticks are you lusting after?
Lots of Love,
