Heart-Shaped Drugstore Beauty

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now you might have come across this little beauty several times but I’ve never written an actual review on it so considering that I’ve been liking it so much it’s only fair if it gets it’s own blog post! The blush I’m talking about is the Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts in Peachy Keen Heart. Quite a long name there.

First off the packaging is the cutest thing ever. I love how it comes in this little heart-shaped box. Such a stunner, right? It might not be the best for traveling as it takes up quite a bit of room in my makeup bag but since it’s so pretty I don’t even mind.

If I remember correctly Makeup Revolution currently offers 3 blushes, 2 bronzers and 1 highlighter within the Blushing Hearts collection. All of them look beautiful but I decided to go with the peachy one as I’ve developed a little obsession with peachy blushers lately.

What I love about this blush is that it basically offers you 3 beautiful shimmery shades or you can swirl your brush through all of them and mix them up to get the most perfect golden peachy pink glow on your cheeks.

The shade all the way to the left is the most gorgeous light golden peach. It’s stunning and might even be my favorite out of all three. The shade in the middle is a beautiful rose gold  and definitely the most pigmented. The shade on the right is quite similar to the one on the left but it’s darker and maybe a bit more on the orange side. All three shades are very pigmented and incredibly shimmery as they have a bit of a frosty metallic finish and they contain glitter particles as well. Now this might sound incredibly glittery but it adds the most beautiful not over the top glow to your skin.

Here are swatches from the shades left to right and one of them all together all the way to the right

This has been an absolute favorite of mine ever since I got it and I think I might have to get my hands on the highlighter and bronzer as well when I’m going to England again in a few weeks! These shades are just gorgeous, add the prettiest peachy glow and they are quite long-lasting. What more could I want?

Thanks for reading!

Makeup Revolution Haul & First Impressions

Hey Lovelies!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and made it through Monday! I don’t know about you but my Monday seemed to drag on and on and wouldn’t end. Thank God that’s over now!

Now if you happen to be one of my lovely Twitter and or Instagram followers you might have seen that my Makeup Revolution order came in last Saturday morning and let me tell you I was quite ecstatic. Makeup Revolution is a brand from the UK and is based in London, I think. For some reason most of the bloggers I follow on Twitter are located in the UK and they kept raving about this brand as they apparently have very good quality products, which are incredibly affordable. Naturally I just had to try some of their products but since I don’t know when I’m going back to the UK next (there’s a slight chance I might go in December but I didn’t want to rely on that) I made a little order only having having discovered they actually ship world wide.

I’m quite impressed how fast it I received it! Now I’ve been playing around with all the items every day since receiving on Saturday and I thought I’d do a little haul and first impressions. Obviously I can’t give a proper review yet as I’ve only had these products for around 4 days. If you want an in-depth review of any of these things just let me know. But without further ado let’s see what I got.

This beauty is definitely one of my favorites from my little order. It contains 32 eyeshadows ranging from matte ones to shimmery. Almost all of them are incredibly pigmented and quite long-lasting so far. I’ve used different shades for my eye makeup every day for the last couple of days and it’s always lasted until the end of the day, which is quite impressive considering how affordable these palettes are.

Blushing Hearts Peachy Keen Heart

How gorgeous is this? Seriously though isn’t this so freaking pretty? I know these look a lot like the Too Faced heart shaped blushers, which I’ve had my eye on for ages but they are incredibly hard to get over here and super expensive, so I thought why not give this one a go. It looks just as beautiful. Having never tried the Too Faced one I obviously can’t compare the two but I can give you my thoughts on this one. I’ve been very into peach blushes recently, which is why I went for the peachy option and so far I’m loving it. It adds the most gorgeous shimmery peachy slightly pink kind of glow to your cheeks.

The One Blush Stick in Matte Malibu and Dream & Focus &Fix Liquid Concealer

I’ve read so many reviews of these blush sticks and how they are one of the best things ever. I thought they’d probably be good for contouring, which is why I chose the Matte Malibu one for a contour and the Dream one, which is quite sheer, for highlighting. So far I’m really impressed with them and I have a feeling they are going to last me ages as I only ever need a tiny amount.

I’ve ran out of my concealer and couldn’t find a drugstore shade over here that was light enough. I thought I’d give this one a try and it’s okay so far. I don’t think this will become a staple one but it’s definitely okay.

Makeup Revolution Lipsticks

IMG_0760

As you can tell from the picture I didn’t buy the most wearable shades, but that’s just what I do. I mean, I once spend 18 bucks on a glittery light blue Mac lip gloss, that according to my friends and family made me look like a corpse. I admit it wasn’t the best look but it sure was different. Anyway… I’m rambling. I just like collecting lipstick shades that are very unique. I probably won’t be wearing the green one to class any time soon but who knows. I’m sure it will come in quite handy one day. So the shades I got are Vamp, Blackheart, Serpent and Rebel with a Cause. Vamp and Blackheart are to very similar incredibly dark purples. I can already see myself wearing these despite them being so dark. Serpent is green and green is my favorite color, so naturally I had to buy it. IT’S GREEN! Rebel with a Cause is a pinky purpely berry kind of shade. All four are very pigmented and I’m excited to try them out more.

So this already rounds off my little haul. I’ve only had these products for four days but so far I don’t regret buying any of these and I’m quite happy with the products I chose to order. Do you own any Makeup Revolution products yet? What do you think of the hype?

Thanks for reading!
