Lollitint Review

As a huuuuge fan of all Benefit cosmetics, I’ve been eyeing up the Lollitint for a little while now – and finally invested! 🙂
I’m never usually disappointed with Benefit and this product was no exception, thankfully. This candy- orchid lip and cheek stain is priced at £24.50, a little pricey but it goes a long way.

Now I have quite a fair skinned complexion, and this looks lovely and rosy on my own cheeks. Plus you can control how much you use of course, so it’s quite versatile. I have seen it on darker skin too anyway, which looks amazing. So it does seem to compliment quite a range of skin types, but I would try a tester before buying, just to be sure.
My own little tip for wearing this on your cheeks would be apply it quickly! It really does stain in the one spot you’ve popped it on, so rub it in straight away in a circling motion. A trick I also like to use is applying a little to a fluffy brush and buffing it onto the cheeks.

Now as for wearing it on your lips, it seems fine. As I’ve said, it’s a lovely little tint and doesn’t feel heavy. But to be honest I would probably stick to using this on my cheeks for myself, as I have a lot of other lip products I adore. It’s still an awesome product in my opinion though, even as just a cheek stain.

Try it yourselves though if you get the chance, and let me know!
Have you used this? Do you love/hate it?

Benefit Christmas Goodies!

One of the perks of working in the beauty industry is the freebies and discounts, So for Christmas we were given a few goodies as a thank you for all our hard work we put in at time of the year. I was lucky enough to get two of the limited edition Christmas sets from benefit.

Benefit Christmas Mini Haul

I chose the Cheeky Sweet Spot blush set and the Sweet Tintations gifts sets. I think the Benebalms are perfect for this time of the year as they give you a lovely pop of colour while still being very hydrating and moisturising for your lips which is definitely needed with how chilly it is in Scotland at the moment.

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.
