Makeup Revolution Foundation, Lip Gloss & Eye Dust review

Budget brand Makeup Revolution continues to impress me with the quality, selection and price of their products…I keep buying and testing, because at these prices it would be ridiculous not to. I think I have found my new Makeup crush – this is definitely a new favorite brand of mine.
I have 3 products that I’ve reviewed today for you. Up first is the the Matte foundation – £2.00

I chose the Ivory shade which is apparently the first shade on this chart:

However I have to say that it is very pale when you squeeze it out of the tube. The funny thing is, once I applied it, the foundation blended seamlessly and it’s actually the perfect colour for me. I’ve been wearing it for 3 days now and it lasts all day long. It stops any shine from coming through (I have quite poly skin), and gives quite a nice, flawless finish. My skin feels smooth, unclogged and able to breathe. It really doesn’t feel like I’m wearing any foundation at all.  The formula is quite thick and not at all runny, which means less mess! 9/10.

Next up is the £1 Lip Gloss tube. My selected shade was Hush, hush – a soft pink.

I love these tubes. The formula is much better than the ELF counterpart – it’s not sticky and it’s longer lasting. The packaging is nicer and there is a nice smell with it too – kind of fruity, like strawberries.

I love this lip gloss and will definitely go on to try other colours. The 9 shades are so on trend and versatile that I think they would suit most skin tones – they’ll definitely suit most budgets! 8/10.

Finally, we have another colour of the Eye Dust. I previously tested the colour ‘Vitality’ here. This time I went for Purple to help my green eyes pop. The colour is Levity.

Not sure about this colour. With purples, there’s a fine line between the right colour and looking as though you’ve been punched in the eye. I think this colour was a bit too dark for everyday work wear for me….I’m still making my mind up. The quality, pigment and price were all spot on though!

So now it’s a waiting game…..waiting for payday so that I can order more £1-£2 goodies! Have you tried this brand yet? Any suggestions what I could try next?

 

 

bareMinerals Bareskin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Review

The advert I keep hearing (and seeing on Youtube) asks….”Can a foundation love your skin?”
bareMinerals reckon they have made a foundation that does. You can check out the product here.

Capture

The Hype:
Ultra-thin silky texture, non-chemical SPF 20, reveals bright, more even-looking skin tone and a no-make up look and feel, skin loving formula, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, coconut-derived base with jojoba-coated mineral pigments and lilac plant stem stells & Vitamin C……

100% OF WOMEN EXPERIENCED MORE EVEN-LOOKING SKIN TONE IMMEDIATELY AFTER  APPLICATION

95% OF WOMEN EXPERIENCED A MEASURABLE IMPROVEMENT IN THE APPEARANCE OF DARKSPOTS

The Reality:
An initially offputting runny formula delivers amazing results, leaving your skin feeling as though you aren’t wearing any make-up at all, whilst giving great coverage to combat blemishes, discolouring and tiredness. Long lasting, non greasy and easy to blend.

Partially blended. This is so you can see how far that tiny drop goes….and will continue to go when you blend more.

Obligatory before face.

After face, with a close up on my skin. As you can see, the shade Ivory isn’t spot on for me so I need to experiment to find my shade which I think will have more pinkish tones that yellow.

I’m actually really pleased with this foundation. It doesn’t sit in my pores looking cakey and undoubtedly clogging them further. It brightened my skin and did give a good, flawless, soft finish. My skin feels amazing! It doesn’t feel like I’m wearing any make up at all and my skin feels silky and soft.

I will definitely be investing in a bottle of this once my samples run out. I just need to find my perfect shade.

Have you tried this product yet? What did you think?
