Makeup Revolution Haul

Makeup Revolution is one of those brands I will rave about forever and ever. The quality of their products is soo amazing and the best thing is I do not have to break my bank purchasing them. I really wanted to try some more of their palettes as they are great for travel and have such great pigmentation.

 I picked up the Beyond Flawless Eyeshadow Palette, Mermaids Forever Eyeshadow Palette and the Ultra Contour Palette. They were all £8 each and considering I paid £24 for three palettes who can possibly complain at that price? I cannot wait to use them.

Next up I had to get a back up of my Focus and Fix Eye Primer  as it works perfectly with the palettes to create the most vibrant and bold look. At £2.50 it is a great dupe for the Urban Decay Primer Potion. Moving onto lips I wanted to try a couple of their lipliners, I got 'Vamp'  & 'Rebel'. They are really pretty dark shades that will really help me to apply dark lipstick better!

Lastly I got 4 of their lipsticks in 'Lady', 'Magnificent', 'The One' & 'Rebel With Cause'. Each lip product cost me £1! Definitely great for those on a budget or who simply don't want to spend £15 on a lipstick they may not even use that often.

I will be doing a more in-depth review of these products so stay tuned for that! Let me know what you think of the products I got in the comments below and whether you use any yourself. I would love to know what your favourite products are  and also what products I should get next time!

Colourpop Kaepop Collection - Ultra Matte Lips

Colourpop products are something I hear being raved about all the time, in particular their Ultra Matte Lip products. These are great liquid lipsticks and they have pretty much every colour I could possibly imagine and want. They recently launched a collaboration with Karrueche Tran - Kaepop. I only managed to get part of the collection which was the 3 Ultra Matte Lip products - 'Chi', 'Kae' and 'Rooch'. She launched these along with some eyeshadows and cheek products.

Bh Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette Review + Swatches

When Carli Bybel came out with her palette last year I was determined to try it and now I finally have my hands on it. I am a sucker for neutral eyeshadows so I already knew I was going to love this palette. The palette includes 10 eyeshadows with a mix of shimmers and mattes as well as 4 highlighter shades which is very useful! I paid $18 in total for the palette and shipping. The shipping process was relatively quick and I received the palette after about 6-7 days.

The palette itself is quite sleek, extremely light and not bulky at all therefore making it travel-friendly! There are 5 matte and 5 shimmer eyeshadows in the palette, all are very beautiful versatile neutral and plum shades. Is the pigmentation good? I would say the eye-shadows do have good pigmentation although I do feel you would need to dip your brush/finger into the eyeshadows a couple of times to get amazing consistency and prevent any patchiness.
