Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer Review

Hey guys,

Today’s post is my review on Makeup Revolution’s new concealer which everyone is talking about! You’re probably bored of reading reviews on this concealer but if on a small chance that you haven’t seen one then yay welcome to mine!

Before I actually got my hands on the concealer I had heard such good reviews on the concealer so I just had to get my hands on one or in my case two… I have the shades C3 & C4.

There is a lot of talk that it is a dupe for the Tarte shape tape concealer which is awesome as I always wanted to try the Tarte one but was put off by the price (£35) whereas the MUR is only £4 (bargainnn)

My Rating: 5/5

My Review

I absolutely love this concealer, it definitely lives up to the hype! The coverage is amazing but isn’t too thick/heavy so is easy to blend and gives a ‘flawless’ look. It is a great way to cover blemishes and brighten up under the eyes! I don’t  I could flaw it in any way at all!

I would 100% recommend this to everyone and anyone as its one of my fave products at the moment!

Thank you for reading today’s post.

What is your opinion on the MUR conceal & define concealer?

Mini Haul from Superdrug, Lush & more

Hey guys!

Feels like ages since I’ve written a blog post but in reality it’s only been a week!

Today’s post is going to be about what I bought on monday when I went shopping to Westfields. It’s mostly makeup because…well I’m addicted.

11c940e7-46a9-418b-906e-c0f8c9e73875

So lets start off with the makeup bits that I got from Superdrug..

82841fef-7cc3-4c90-94e0-44c584ff8784

Superdrug had this awesome deal which was to spend £12 and get the ‘Love Conquers All’ palette by Makeup Revolution which is a total bargain if you ask me! Plus I needed those three bits anyway!

Makeup Revolution Luxury Baking Powder

b8d7bb2b-fda9-4e0a-9c54-bb7a34428c39

Okay so I have been looking for a baking powder for EVER, so I was so happy to finally get this! It was the fourth time of me searching a superdrug for it but all they had was the banana baking powder which is wayyy too yellow for my skin tone. So I thought the ‘lace’ shade would be perfect.

First impressions: 4/5 – you get a lot of product and for £5 what more could you want? It also seems to do a good job at baking although it’s not the best I’ve seen (via youtube) but for a beginner like me, who’s just started to bake; it is perfect! Would definitely reccommed!

Makeup Revolutions’ Conceal & Define concealer

816ad55b-70ad-410a-9c5d-030b57442a39

As you are aware that I already own one of these if you’ve seen my previous post but on monday I bought the lighter shade as I had previously purchased it in the shade C4 but wanted it lighter. As it is super popular it has taken ages to find a light shade in a store so on monday I got the C3.

To find out my first impressions on this you’ll have to stay tuned and wait for my review on it which is coming up soon..

Makeup Revolutions’ Pro Fix Illuminating fixing spray

818e92a8-3b88-434b-b5a5-4b78f6bc9658

I’ve been in need for a new fixing/setting spray as my Rimmell one broke, so thought I’d give this a shot.

First impressions: 3/5, seems to do the job but the smell isn’t the best.

Makeup Revolution Love Conquers All eyeshadow & highlighter palette

939b61df-1dd3-44d8-b06c-c0e2c9287aaa

I’m aware the swatches havent come out too well, it was the first time me doing swatches so please don’t hate. The light shades don’t come out too well but the deeper ones do and boyy are they good! The highight is the heart in the middle and acts as a cute and glowy blush.

My first impressions: 3/5 as the pigmentation is good..but not as good as MUR’s other palettes.

Inglot Duraline

198d5640-9734-4bc8-b70b-3f557b1d71a9

I heard about this from one of my favourite MUA’s Abigail Forbes. It is a mixing liquids which makes dried up makeup products more usable. My eyebrow promade was getting a tad dry and this is just what it needed!

My first impression: 5/5, it works like a charm! My brow promade is practically brand new!

Kiko Radient Fusion Baking Powder

77034a01-6d5f-44c7-9106-1f5cda6b0849

So I went from having no baking powders to having two! This one is a different formula so maybe it’ll work better or worse.. I don’t know. I love Kiko however and this was half price so I couldn’t resist!

I have no first impressions as I haven’t used it yet.

L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper

8bb665bf-28a0-41b2-b244-76b102f9e3b7

I’ve needed an eyebrow gel for absolute ages! So it was about time I purchased one! I decided to try this one as I’m loving their eyebrow pencil at the moment so why not!

My first impressions: 5/5, can’t fault it in any way, does everything I wanted/needed it to do.

Spectrum Tapered blender brush

ed5fbf52-811d-47f6-a85d-46598dca0fec

I’ve seen spectrum brushes everywhere at the moment! I only just realised boots sold them so I treated myself to this one.

My first impressions: 5/5, the brush is super pretty and soft and it blends the shadow perfectly.

Lush The hair doctor hot oil treatment

e969ad09-1577-4fef-a6f4-2397f70511fd.jpg

As I’m in desperate need for my hair to grow I have been looking around for different masks and oils to use and this was one that I have found!

I have no first impressions as of yet, as I haven’t tried it yet!

Lush Teo Deodrant

461fbcd2-97d0-431a-8bf6-b22449a62dfb

You’re probably reading this and thinking that I’m a weirdo for buying this but I’ve been looking around for a cruelty free deodorant and couldn’t find one. Lush did sell these powder ones but can you imagine how messy that would get, well with me trying to use it anyway.

Again, I haven’t got any first impressions of this as I’m yet to try it out.

Lushs’ Roots hair treatment

7ba9dcd8-126f-4b48-bd8b-15cad643e504

As I said previously I’ve been looking for hair masks to help my hair grow or in this case make my hair less ‘fine’.

And you guessed it..I haven’t tried this yet either so have no first impressions.

So this may be more than a ‘mini haul’ oops.. But in all seriousness, I hope you have enjoyed reading this and maybe seen something you like.

Here are the websites where you can get what I have mentioned above:

And that is all!

Thank you so much for reading this post! There will be reviews upcoming for some of these products so please keep your eyes peeled.

Love, Jess x

P.S. What hair masks/oils have any of you found that helps your hair to grow? (Please answer in the comments)

What’s in my makeup bag?

Hey guys,

I’m back!!! (Well I didn’t physically go anywhere but I had a mini break) I’ve been super busy with work and personal things but I’m so happy to be back writing posts!

Today’s post is about what I keep in my makeup bag, if the title didn’t give it away already (shocker, right?)

Let’s start of with my makeup bag, as many of you know I LOVE Harry Potter so couldn’t resist buying this when I saw it! (Primark £4) I wanted to get a hufflepuff one as that’s the house I’ve been sorted in. However, they only had gryffindor and slytherin in stock so I chose the gryffindor one.

These are the makeup bits and bobs that I keep in it. I have other makeup bags filled with other makeup but these are my go-to’s.

Glitter pigments & glitter primer from NYX

I love NYX’s products, they are of such great quality and value! And they’re cruelty free, bonus!!

Sleek face form and highlight palettes

I’m also a big fan of sleeks highlighter palettes and I love the contour palette, it works perfect for me! I’ve always preferred powered based contours as I find them easier to work with and blend out. The highlight on the body form palette is also my fave, as you can probably tell due to it almost being finished.

NYX & Urban Decay eyeliners

Urban Decay do my favourite liquid eyeliners of all time! I use their heavy metal eyeliners in almost every makeup look I do! The ‘epic ink liner’ from NYX is also the best liquid liner I’ve used as it’s so easy to apply and doesn’t bleed out!

NYX & L’Oreal mascaras

Yes I bought the ‘badunkadunk’ mascara by NYX purely for its name… however, I was pleasantly impressed at its quality. Although it does transfer onto my eyelids almost every time I apply it; and god forbid you rub your eye…panda look it is! But other than that it is good and adds good volume onto my lashes. The other mascara is by L’Oreal and I can’t remember the name for it, but it’s a fibre mascara and is AMAZING! I haven’t used false lashes since and well.. that speaks for itself.

NYX & L’Oreal primers

I love the L’Oreal ‘infallible luminizing primer’ it’s a lovely texture, very easy to apply and makes your skin glow even under foundation! When I’m not using The L’Oreal primer I use my NYX HD Studio primer which matches my foundation, it works really well and keeps my makeup intact, hooray!

Foundation, BB cream and concealers

If my skin is bad I use L’Oreals’ glam nude BB cream as a primer/base under my foundation. Otherwise I use my foundation and concealer as usual. I love the foundation, it’s not too thick but has a good coverage. However without powder it can be shiny.

Rimmell eyebrow pencil & NYX eyebrow pomade

As you can see I’ve almost finished the eyebrow pencil, I love it! But won’t be getting another one as it’s nit cruelty free. However I love NYX’s brow pomade, for me it’s perfect and totally affordable! However I do want to try the ABH one as it’s clearly one of the best from the hype!

And that is all! As I mentioned earlier I do have much more makeup than that but these are the bits I use regularly and love the most!

Whats the favourite makeup product that you have in your make up bag?

Thank you so much for reading today’s post.

Love,

BLOGMAS – DAY 4 – Gift guide for her

Hey guys, today is day 4 of blogmas and I’m already feeling the struggle!

Today’s post is a gift guide for her, as yes it can be hard to buy for us girls but if you know her interests then I hope this post can be of help to you!

If you missed yesterday’s post check it out here it’s a gift guide for him

These gifts could be for your friend, girlfriend, sister, Mum, cousin…etc and depending on your price range some of these gifts might just be perfect! (If I’ve done a good job)

Jewellery

Most girls love a bit of bling as it helps to make the outfit look just a little bit more glam

You can get some lovely costume jewellery from accessorise, Topshop or river island (my personal top 3)

Top left | bottom left|right

If she is into more elegant jewellery and you don’t mind spend that bit more then pandora is the place! Swarozki is also good as well as h samuels but again this depends on your price range and how much you’re willing to spend on this certain person.

Pandora

(Pandora has a Disney collection so if she’s a lover of Disney then I highly recommend something from the collection!)

Makeup

If she is a lover of makeup then why not treat her to a makeup gift set!

Boots and Superdrug both sell some really good ones!

Boots | Superdrug

Gift sets

Sometimes it’s hard to pin point what to buy someone so if you have a vague idea on what they like then a gift set is perfect!

You can get all sorts of gift sets! Some of these are:

• Perfume

• Nail sets

• Socks

• Bath sets

• Body shop gift sets

And many more!

Boots | Superdrug | The Body Shop

Box sets

If she loves a series and is non stop watching it then why not treat her to the box set! That way she can watch it whenever she wants!

Here are some popular box sets that you could get

Lush bath bombs

Everyone should know how amazing Lushs’ Christmas range is amazing so why not treat her with a pretty bath bomb! She’s sure to love it!

Lush

Lush bath sets are a perfect idea, they’re small and sweet! Most gift sets from Lush contain one or two bath bombs and a little gel, depending on the set.

Boots & Superdrug do some lovely bath sets as well

Candles

Around Christmas time it is lovely to have candles around to help it feel festive and cosy at this time of the year. Nothing says Christmas more than a room lit up by candles and smelling like eggnog or ginger.

Yankee candles have some really lovely candles, here are some examples:

Yankee candles

Personalised gifts

I don’t know about you but I always feel personalised gifts are just that extra bit special. There’s so many options from personalised frames to personalised notebooks! Amazon is a great place to get personalised gifts and keepsakes!

Fashion

And if none of the above ticks your boxes you can’t go wrong with a cute gloves, scarf and hat set! Perfect for this time of year too!

River Island | Accessorize

And if she’s a shopaholic or just loves to treat herself once in a while but is fussy then why not a voucher for her favourite shop!

These are all the ideas that I could come up with, I hope it was helpful to any of you who are struggling to buy presents for your friends and family.

Just a little reminder, don’t stress too much over presents, as Christmas is more about being with friends and family and making lifetime memories and that is the most important.

Thank you for reading today’s post and stay tuned for tomorrow’s post when I will be sharing my Christmas tree with you! Yay

Love, Jess x
