revlon super lustrous lipstick - vava voilet ♥

hey loves,

surprise surprise, another lipstick is it really that much of a shock? this is a bit of a random lipstick to be reviewing this time of year but we are going to roll with it aren't we? revlon are my true love when it comes to lipsticks, there affordable, easy to get and have different finishes and a fast arrange of shades. and lets face it the packaging is to die for right? black and gold for the win!

the formula for this is a creme which means it has no shimmer or anything in which is fab for me, matte and cream finishes are for me and have been for ages now. Because of the shade and how deep it is this does stain (no kidding it took me 3days with lots of soap and scrubbing to get this of my hand fully) so the staying power is awesome when its gone it just looks like ive drank alot of grapejuice. I personally really like revlon as a brand on the whole but there lipsticks are something i couldnt quit the rest i could but the lipsticks! its just love.

Revlon colorstay foundation - 180 sand beige ♥

hello loves, 

this is one of the foundations that i like then i dont like and then i love. revlon colorstay is a cult favourite in the blogging/youtube/beauty world, and for a while i was put off because of all the hype. its a glass bottle which i love, no pump but i can deal with that the lid breaks if you screw it on to tight so all round not fabulous packaging but it can be sorted with easy hands or buying a pump from mac or using one from a old foundation. 

there are 2 kinds of formula to this foundation a combo to oily & normal to dry, i got the combo to oily since im combo really there should have been a combo to normal and combo to dry aswell but hey we cant have everything. This is quite liquidy and not as thick as i assumed it would be it is medium coverage and can be built up to high if needed personally i dont do that i dont need to but if you do then that is a option, it does last along time without primers and setting powders/sprays with is fab i havent tried the claims of 24hours but ive wore it for 9/10 hours and it wore beautifully, the shade 180 sand beige is a perfect match for me where buff was a little to pale,  it does look flawless with a brush, sponge and fingers & over all im happy with it but as a i said i do go through phases and sometimes i can put it on and think i dont look right it all depends on how my skin is that day. as i said ive got more combo to normal skin so i like a little more dew than this gives and sometimes this is just perfect.

W7 Prime Magic Anti-Redness Primer ♥

Hello loves,

In the tube this looks revolting but blended in theres no green tinge or nothing it just contracts the red nicely, i really dont have that much redness but in the summer i get alot more around my nose and cheeks but its one of them things that i always think of theres better out there, but i feel like that about primers in general, this is my fav anti red primer so far but im always on the look out for new primers to find "the one" so if you have any recommendation please leave them below!

MakeUp Academy Matte Lipstick Collection ♥

Hello loves, 

lipsticks are my best friend, i have loads, and honestly all these i got to have the collection because that is just the type of person i am! i like that these are in the white tubes and the normal are black i really think that is a cute touch.

the shades in order: 

fancy fawn - a brown based deeper nude
totally nude - a pinky brown lighter nude (only a slight pink tone)
pouty pink - a standard bright pink
peachy keen - a peachy coral shade with a pink undertone
lilac belle - a pinky tone with a lilac undertone.
scarlet siren - a classic bright red
wild berry - a deep blackcurrant shade

all these lipsticks bring something different to the table, for a £1 there not overly drying and are comfortable to wear. my favourites are totally nude, wild berry and lilac belle.

makeup revolution blusher - treat ♥

hello loves, 

i havent ordered or brought much from makeup revolution, i keep saying im going to place a order and never do but i have a list that is ever ever growing from them! so after my holiday im hoping to place a big big order with them. ive said it before and ill say it again i love the rose gold writing on the packaging, i like that its a round pan rather than rectangle the packaging can break but it clips back in perfectly so no biggy and if it does break i can just replace it for £1 price tag. 

left blended - right not blended
im drawn to coral shades when it comes to blush, its very rare for me to love a hot pink like most people do im to pale to pull that off. this is a coral/peachy shade with fiine gold glitter going through it to make it look not so flat. these blushes can be quite powdery which is expected for a £1 nothings perfect but they blend like a dream and the last power is fabulous for such a low priced product i can wear this all day with out touch ups. I do plan on getting the other shades too.
