I was crazy enough to venture out on Black Friday this year and managed to grab myself a few bargains.
One of the many massive discounts being raved about was the Makeup Revolution box filled to the brim with goodies all for a price of £25 from Superdrug. The price before hand was £50 so it had a mega 50% off!!!!
The box is a make up heaven for any girl! I had to ask a customer service lady to help me find it, as all but ONE were sold out. When we found it we stood in silence… a lady had it in her hands looking tentatively at the box, turning it round in her hands….then she put it down and SNATCH……….IT WAS MINE mwahahahaha. Silly woman! Yeah, so I was lucky to get it lol.
Let me show you inside…..
2 x Eyeshadow Palettes. All neutral shades as you can see. I have now had the time to use these and the quality is great. I have found better pigmented eyeshadows but for the price these are great. Very buttery (which I love) and very easy to blend. Good range of colours for a day or night look.
1 x HD Pro Brows palette. This contains a mixture of powders and wax to get the best from your brows. Again I would stick to power for a day time look then shade them a bit darker if your going out. It’s also fab as it has hightlightes in that you can use all over your face not only to highlight your brow bone.
1 x Blush Palette. Another all rounder beauty. Plenty of blush shades to choose from but have to ever thought about using these as eyeshadows??? give it a go and you’ve got yourself another eyeshadow palette.
1 x eye primer: I love this gold packaging and the application is so easy. 1 x Aqua Priming Base. I love this! I use in place of fixing spray as it’s important to keep the face hydrated and your make up looking fresh. If you want a very dewy look then go ahead and use them both!
1 x Contouring Stick. This is similar to the NYX contouring Stick and brilliantly easy to use. One side has a lighter shade of foundation to highlight, and the other a darker side to create shade and contour. This packaging is great to take out and top up you’re make up!
1 x Strobe Palette. This palette has 8 cream shimmer shades ideal to create a strobed makeup look and to highlight those cheekbones! Again, another stick this time with a gold glow on one side for darker skin shade and the other a silver undertone for lighter skin shades. Pop a power highlight on top to get a MEGA POPPING highlight girls!
You also get 1 x Ultra Strobe Cream. Use this mixed in with your primer to create a wonderful glowing skin and dewy finish.
The last and my MOST favourite out of the box are these wonderful nude shade liquid lipsticks. You can see by the swatches below how good the colour pay off is on these. For me the best things is that it doesn’t dry my lips out and as you know if you’ve ever had a liquid lipstick that this often happens.
Do you want the good or the bad news first.
The BAD: Superdrug no longer sell this product as far as I can see but..
The GOOD news: Superdrug have plenty more to offer with plenty of other gift sets available from this range and many others AND you can pick this up for £35.00 on Makeup Revolutions own website. its a little more then I paid but still an incredible bargain! Go on..treat yourself!
