New Makeup Revolution Buys!

20140630-194008-70808412.jpg
So the awesome Makeup Revolution brand have released some excellent new products!
I knew I could not resist and purchased the Ultra Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice ,but man oh man, I wish I had got the Hot Spice one too!
The Sugar and spice one is super pink! I love it as it suits my pale colouring and there are also a few options in the palette for a little light contouring!
I love the light highlighting pan! It reminds me of the moon! 🙂

Also purchased the Ultra Cover and Conceal Palette in Light!
Ideal for times when I might have a bit of a tan or when it comes to winter and I revert to being a ghost! Plenty of shades ahoy!
Good creamy consistency and excellent coverage that can be built up!

I adore this huge tricolour bronzer called Bronze Shimmer Highlight!
Three wearable bronze shades that won’t make me look like I’ve been at the Ronseal! Also minimal glitter! LOVE this!

Finally I got a five colour Baked Eyeshadow mini palette in the shade Pure and Innocent!
Nice summery colours that will accentuate my blue eyes!
Great pigmentation and super blend-a-bility!
I have swatched on mine own arm below!
These products are mega cheap but feel like way more expensive products!
Nice slick packaging too!
I only wish I had got not only the Hot Spice palette but also one of the eye foils too! I forget every time!
Get some gorgeous new makeup here!

Random New Favourites!

I love it when I have unexpected beauty discoveries, especially nice thrifty ones!
I have been using Garnier Micellar Cleansing water for weeks now and I love it!
For roughly around the £4 mark you get 400ml of product and it lasts for ages! I’m still only halfway through my bottle.
I use one cotton pad lightly soaked in this for my face then another one for my eyes.
It removes every last trace of make up without me having to rub my face and it doesn’t dry out my skin. It literally feels like you’re using plain water.

I used this Imperial Leather Foamburst Luxury Body Wash just because it was on the side of the bath! It’s not something I would normally purchase!
I used my usual exfoliating gloves and squeezed a little bit of this onto my hands.
It comes out of the packaging exactly like shaving gel would and when I rubbed my gloved hands together it lathered up a storm! It was really really foamy and super luxurious feeling!
I only needed a tiny bit and it was so luxuriously thick that I used the remnants for shaving my legs!
Brilliant stuff and you can get it here.

I have dry ends to my hair and I kept hearing word of coconut butter/oils moisturising properties so I went to track some down and found this little beauty in Boots!
It’s Boots Ingredients Coconut Body Oil. It comes in a glass jar with a metal screw lid, so it can be recycled or re- purposed!
The product smells heavenly and is of course coconuty! It’s solid in the jar but melts on contact with the skin!
I just scoop a chunk out and rub between my palms then distribute thought the ends of my hair!
I leave it for 10 mins or so then I wash my hair as normal!
It leaves me with lovely soft hair! T’is only £2:54 in Boots!

Beauty Blogger Swap

Samantha at She’s Looking at the Stars organised a swap amongst bloggers! So I hopped on board and got paired with a lovely lady called Andrea!
We had £15 to spend on products for our pairings!
The pic below is what I got sent! On top of what’s in this pic I also got a pretty list pad thingy which is awesome because I’m a list aholic!
I’m pretty excited about the palette and I do love a MUA lipstick! I love that the bottom unscrews and you get a little pot of colour too! 🙂
See what I sent Andrea here!

Birchbox Global Strikers June 2014

20140615-231430-83670355.jpg

Here be the June Birchbox and it’s inspired by, oh let me see, the World Cup!
It came in a cute green bag and the contents were pretty cool!
I got a mini OPI nail polish from the Brazil Nail Laquer range, it’s blue and sparkly.
I also received a Yves Rocher lipstick in a lovely orangey red!
Not fond of its packaging but the formula is light and moisturing!
I finally get to see what everyone in the whole world is going on about with this Beautyblender thing!
A very decent sized glass bottle of Caudalie’s Divine Oil also appeared in the box! I love a good body oil!
A tiny tube of Coola sunscreen was included!

Ps check out the cute flip flop key ring!

Glossybox June 2014

20140617-134642-49602967.jpg

Here’s Junes Glossybox!
It’s the worst I’ve had! I have seen other peeps get Rituals and L’Oreal items in their boxes!
I’ve cancelled my subscription to Glossybox and I’ve also cancelled my Love Me beauty subscription!
I quite like Love Me Beauty but Birchbox always has the better stuff. So for reasons of saving money for becoming a student I am giving up the inferior boxes!
