Too Faced chocolate bar palette

dsc_0168

So for christmas I finally got the Too Faced chocolate bar palette that I have been lusting over for months and I can happily say it doesn’t disappoint!

First of all the packaging is gorgeous, Too Faced are known for their beautiful packaging they never fail to disappoint with it. The mirror is very handy in the palette, not many high end palettes include one so I was really happy when I opened it up and saw it.

IT SMELLS OF CHOCOLATE!!! What better combo than makeup and chocolate?! As soon as I opened it I could smell it straight away, it smells soooo good. Seriously.

Now, the actual product…

The colours are all gorgeous, I am still yet to use some of the shimmer shades as I keep going for either the pinks or gold but I will try them all eventually. I love how they all have names it makes life so much easier when telling people how you created the eye makeup you’re wearing. They blend like an absolute dream, I thought my morphe palette was amazing until I got this, it has made me realise that actually the morphe shadows are really chalky and not very easy to blend at all. You can really tell that this product is more luxurious.

You really can just use this one palette for a look as there are perfect colours for every part of the eye. For example I use white chocolate to set my primer, I then use salted caramel for my crease colour and the first transition colour, I then gradually go in with milk chocolate and semi sweet focusing more on the outer corner and building it and finally using triple fudge only on the outer corner to darken it, of course I then take one of the shimmers (usually either marzipan or creme brulee) all over the lid. p.s – see how much easier that was to explain because the shadows have names?

At £39 it is quite a steep purchase but trust me it is worth every penny. Although I did get this bought for me I will still be going out and buying the semi sweet palette because I am so impressed with this. There is nothing I can fault it on.

Morphe 35T Palette

So I recently purchased this palette on BeautyBay after lusting over the 35o palette but it being out of stock EVERY single time I wanted to order it so I decided to get my hands on a different one after hearing so many good things about these palettes.

just look at how pretty it is!

First of all, the price. How can you go wrong with 35 eyeshadow colours, yes 35!! for only £21 it is an absolute steal!

The one thing that would make this palette even better would be if it included a matte black as every time I want to do a really dark smokey eye I have to go to another one of my palettes just for a black so it’s quite inconvenient having to take two palettes when travelling. However, you can make a nice smokey eye still by building up the brown colours.

Below is a look I quickly created on my little sister (she is growing out her eyebrows so the hearts were needed) but the colours are sooo pigmented as you can see, especially the shimmers they are just incredible!

Mini makeup revolution haul

If you follow my blog you will know that I am a massive lover of the brand makeup revolution and there are just soooo many products that I want to try so last week I ordered a few of these and i’m blogging about them now as i’ve had time to try them out.

Okay so first the pro illuminate, well to start with who doesn’t love a good highlighter?! isn’t it every girls favourite piece of makeup EVER! It certainly is mine. When this arrived I was in shock at how big it was! for just £4 you get sooo much product! It is also absolutely gorgeous, the colour is amazing as you can see in the image below. The product lasts alllll day aswell which is a huge bonus so no re-applying is needed!

Next is the eye primer, I got the brighten one which was an accident (oopsy!) so it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for as I wanted the matte one but I will definitely still use it! Below is a swatch of what it looks like on the skin, some people may be worried about the fact it comes out quite dark and glittery but trust me once it’s on the eye it’s not like this once it’s all rubbed in well! I have used this a few times the past week and it does help make stick my makeup to my eye! I managed to pick this up for £1.75 in the sale and it is a bargain!

Finalllllly, the awesome metals eye foil in rose gold. I have been trying to get my hands on this product for soooo long it is always sold out when I go to buy it but it must of been a miracle it was finally in stock on the revolution website. You get a nice size pot of product,  a primer to mix and a nice tray to mix it on. This is pretty much a dupe of Stila magnificent metals foil finish but for a much more affordable price for everyone!

But sadly I have to say I wasn’t impressed by this product. It was a good job I do my eyes first or my full face would of been ruined this product went everywhere!! Also it didn’t go on my eyes that well, from all the reviews I read everyone else seems to love this product. Anyone got any tips on how I should try this again?

If anyone would recommend me different products to try that would be fab!

The brand everyone is talking about – MAKEUP REVOLUTION!

revolution

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past couple of months you will be so familiar with the high street makeup brand ‘makeup revolution’ I am a fully converted believer in these products! The range starts from as little as £1 and basically everything is under £10, yes even the palettes are all cheap aswell!

I was recommended to try one of the baked highlighters for £3 and that was the moment I fell in love with the brand, it stays on all day and comes in lightweight packaging with a pretty pattern on the highlighter, you really wouldn’t know it was just £3.

I have recently just done quite a big haul and thought I would share with you some of my new favourite products.

These Salvation Velvet Matte Lip Lacquers are amazing! I tend to avoid lip products with the word ‘matte’ in them as they just make my lips look chapped etc, especially high end brand ones such as MAC. But these are just incredible, they go on so smoothly and in such a good liquid velvet form however once it has dried – which is very quickly! they have a matte look and feel but they don’t make my lips look chapped wahoo! they are honestly so worth the money, I paid £6 for 6 of them! Once they’re on there is no way you are getting them off they completely stick to your lips and last for hours.

lips

These eyeshadow palettes are just fab! They are dupes of the naked ones and you can barely tell a difference, especially for £4 each and 12 lovely shades. These are especially good for anyone who wants the naked palettes but are put off by the prices, definitely try these out! As you can see the pigmentation is AMAZING, I really wasn’t expecting it to be this good for how cheap the product is. There are a range of shimmer and matte eyeshadows so you can easily create several different looks. You do get a nice double ended brush however I am not keen on this so would recommend buying your own. The only other negative thing about these eyeshadows is that each individual colour don’t have a name. I have included some swatches below so you can see what they’re like on the skin!

This first palette is ‘Redemption palette iconic 3’

The palette below is ‘Redemption palette iconic 2’

Lastly, is the cover and conceal palette in light-medium, this is only £8! I haven’t had a chance to try out this product yet but I am sure that I will love it. The range of colours is fantastic, I am light skinned but I got the light-medium so I can use the darker colours for my contouring. If anyone has used this and has an opinion on it feel free to leave a comment!
