Makeup Revolution Birthday Haul

I know I'm super late with this post but I haven't had a chance to sit down and blog recently, BUT here I am with a haul. Makeup Revolution celebrated their 2nd Birthday party last month in London which I couldn't attend to sadly so they were very kind and sent me a bunch of goodies. I wasn't expecting anything until my mum said there was a parcel for me which made me excited, the parcel was huge. They definitely spoilt me rotten and I thought id share these amazing products with you.

First off there was a black bag inside which says ''I helped Revolution'' which I thought was a cute idea. They are really good to their bloggers who get a chance to work with them. Makeup Revolution also have a sister ''Freedom Makeup'' which they also put a few products in which excites me as I haven't tried their products before. Both brands are stocked in Superdrug.

Starting off with Makeup Revolution products, the first thing I noticed was there Antibacterial Brush Cleanser, I was just about to order my self one of these, I normally just stick to baby shampoo and warm water so I can't wait to give this a go. Moving on to the Rose Gold Packaging, I noticed one of there lipsticks in the shade ''Girls Best Friend'' which is this gorgeous pink shade. Along with the Rose Gold I also received there Ultra Metal Foundation Brush which I have used and its super soft on the skin and blends my foundation out really well.

As I said before I haven't tried anything from Freedom Makeup so I couldn't wait to start trying everything out. The one product that excites me the most is their Pro Studio Strobe Cream, my skin looked very healthy and glowy once applied and I new this was an exact Dupe from Mac's Strobe cream. The next thing I saw was this MASSIVE Pro Artist Pad Black Arts Eyeshadow Palette, the colours looked gorgeous and I'm spoilt for choice. 

Last but not least are a few extra products Superdrug popped in. I haven't tried any of these products before so yet again I was even more excited. I love a good pair of fake Eyelashes for nights out, I received these Lash Eyelashes Volume/21, I think these will look really nice on. Next is the Solait Express Tan in Medium/Dark, I love a good tan so definitely couldn't wait to give this a go, its a gradual tan so the longer you leave it the darker it will be. There was a few other products such as some Makeup wipes from B.Pure Micellar, Dragon Fruit and Vanilla Shower Cream which smells amazing and some Honey Blonde Hair Toner.

So that's everything I received from Makeup Revolution, there goodie bag was amazing and spoilt me with such great products. Do you like Makeup Revolution and did you attend there party?

Nudestix has come out yet again with even more amazing lip and cheek pencils. Nudestix is based in Toronto and they have worked with loads of Makeup Artists and Photographers, Its a simple collection of easy-to-use makeup crayons that cover all bases to give you a fresh natural face. I know Nars have bought out some Velvet Matte lip pencils but Nudestix has taken over. Although you can use these for the cheeks too, I prefer to just use them on the lips.

These non-drying cruelty free lipsticks come in 8 shades, 5 nudes and 3 reds. I received Royal and Belle. Belle is the perfect day time nude, it gives you a subtle pinky nude look and looks natural, you could get away with wearing it too work without looking super dressy. Royal which is this dark deep red which I am afraid to wear out as I don't wear these type of shades, its very sophisticated looking and very out there. Maybe one day in the winter I will be brave enough to wear it. 

With these two lip pencils it also comes with a Blur pencil. Its an instant line, crease and pore blurring pencil that creates a smoother looking skin texture. For example if you have large pores the blur pencil will create a smoother looking finish. It also can be used as a lip primer, yes a lip primer, has anyone used one of these? You simply apply this before your lipstick to create a smooth flawless base, to extend the wear. All of their Crayons are very soft, non drying, The pigmentation is crazy and gives you a very smooth coverage. They last very long and are waterproof/smudge free and can last up to 6 hours on the lips. Each individual pencil comes in its own small black container with its own sharpener and a little leaflet given you  information about the product. 

Nudesitx has definitely been my favourite so far and have yet again impressed me. You can pick them up from Cult Beauty, Space NK, Look Fantastic, Have you used these lip pencils before?

NEW Soap & Glory Makeup

Soap & Glory have to be one of my favourite Makeup brands out there, they just keep releasing  amazing products. I bought these three products a couple of weeks back so Ive been testing them out here and there but I'm still making my mind up about them. They are very affordable.

Soap & Glory One heck of a Blot Primer isn't new to everybody, most Beauty Bloggers have it and its very well known as everyone raves and loves it. I love a good primer or wise without one, my makeup just slides right off. This primer is aimed at those with oily skin, and it aims to control the shine and give a matte finish to the skin. I find this very hydrating and it has a nice silky feeling so when I apply my makeup it just glides on, You can go wrong with £10.

Next is my favourite NEW Glow all out Highlight & Sculpt Cheek stick in Ice Shimmer. This highlighter is perfect for a natural look with a hint of glow, its a gorgeous champagne colour that blends out very easily. I will either blend it out with my fingers or just a small blending brush. There are also two other Cheek sticks in this range, you have Love at first blush and Wonder Bronze. They only costs £8.

Next is this NEW Archery Brow Putty Dip Pot & brush. The Archery family welcomes the Brow putty. This brow product is completely different to what they have brought out before, it has a dual-ended stick with an angled brush on one end and a dipping pot of tinted putty om the other end. They have three colour ranges - Love is Blonde, Brownie Points and Dark Chocolate. I have Brownie points but I find it a tad too light. If your looking for something to fill your eyebrows in naturally this would be perfect for you, my eyebrows look very subtle, soft and natural and this brow product is great for that. I do find it hard to get product out of the pot so I have to keep dipping in and out a few times, Maybe if I went for Dark chocolate it would of given me a bit more intensity. This also costs £10.

Do you Like Soap and Glory? Have you tried any of these?
