My First Giveaway!

For my first giveaway, I decided to choose a product which combined value with high quality, and also offered more than one use. I ended up choosing the Makeup Revolution Iconic Smokey Eyeshadow Palette. I picked up one of these for myself too, so watch out for a full review and some tutorials before the giveaway is over! The prize itself is a selection of twelve eyeshadows, mostly with a shimmer texture but also some matte shadows, in colours of brown, green, cream, blue, grey and black. It’s not only the perfect way to create a vibrant smokey eye look, but also a fairly good dupe of Urban Decay’s NAKED Smokey palette.

Review: Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit

In case you hadn’t noticed, Makeup Revolution might be my favourite drug store brand right now. Sure, it doesn’t have the quality that more expensive brands have, but the quality to price ratio is amazing. I already reviewed one of their liquid lipstick products, which was fab for just £2. So I thought I’d try another! The Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kits were on my wish list for a while, so I bought one and gave it a try.

Review: Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Makeup Revolution as a brand recently, so picked up a few of their things today to give try. I’m also relatively new to liquid lipstick, despite my extensive collection of lip products. So today I picked up 2 liquid lipsticks from Makeup Revolution, and the Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer is the first one I tried.

Today’s shopping haul

Today was the first day in 6 weeks I didn’t have deadline’s or extra reading looming over my shoulder. In dire need of a few things and having no commitments today, I decided a decent shop was in order! Here is what I bought!
