Makeup Revolution // Blush Palette's

  A   M A K E U P   R E V O L U T I O N  

Well hello there! Let's jump right into this post because there is a lot of images to go through. I just had to have these new Makeup Revolution blush palette's. I've seen a couple of blog posts showing off these amazing palette's and knew I had to pick them up. They only cost £6.00 each, you can purchase them at any participating Superdrug stores on the highstreet, Superdrug Online and Makeup Revolution Online . I bought mines from the Superdrug on Princes Street, Edinburgh. 

A little bit about the brand ... Makeup Revolution is a new, London based makeup brand, launched earlier this year they produce excellent quality cosmetics at very affordable prices, starting at only £1. With more than 300 products to choose from your are sure to find something truly amazing. What they say ... 

"We Are SHADE. For everyone skin tone, and all of the shades!"
"We Are INCLUSIVE. Anyone and Everyone can join the REVOLUTION"

Okay, now onto the palette's. I picked up the only two that are available so far, Hot Spice and Sugar & Spice. I was surprised by the quality of these palette's, they have a nice weight to them and look nice and sleek with a glossy black finish. The palette's came in their own individual outer box which was sealed. Bonus! For me, this is a great feature because you know that your palette hasn't been tampered with or swatched. Inside they come complete with 8 different blush colours including 1 baked blush and 1 baked highlighter.
Unfortunately my swatch pictures didn't turn out so well but here are some pictures of both palette's:

Both palette's are extremely pigmented and have very strong colour pay off when applied. Be careful of how much you use. The harshness of colour may perhaps be a slight let down if I am being honest. You have to make sure you blend these colours right in otherwise they will look like you have waaaaay to much blusher on!

Nevertheless, I think these palette's are great for people who are either, just starting out with makeup or like me, a complete cosmetic fiend that just can't help herself when it comes to exciting new makeup.

Let me know if you have tried anything from Makeup Revolution and what you think of their products.

Label.M // Brightening Blonde Balm

H e l l o  B l o n d i e !

Hi guys! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Well it's Sunday night, which means it's Monday tomorrow. In light of that joyous news let me tell you what I think of this exciting new product from Label.m.

Label.m is a relatively new brand brought to us by Toni Mascolo and Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck, part of the massive fashion hair care brand Toni & Guy. Label.m is also a creative, fashion inspired, award winning hair care range. 

"Our mission is to inspire and nurture creativity and individuality in our professional stylists and clients around the world" - Toni & Guy Website

I bought this the other day during my routine highlighting session at the hairdressers. I was immediately drawn to this product as it was on display right next to where I was sitting, they always do that eh? So, this product claims to strengthen and smooth out blonde highlights. It is suppose to keep your blonde hair looking fresher for longer, the smoother your hair looks the more vibrant your hair will appear. 

I think Label.m may have a range for other hair colours, be sure to check the website or pop into your local salon for more info on that. For now though, this product is for my fellow blondes out there.

Application guidelines say to apply one pump of this product to damp hair and comb through. I love using my Tangle Teaser. I had this product used on my hair at the salon then just decided to buy it. I've run out of my (current fav) Moroccan Oil at the moment so I figured this could be a good replacement, plus it was half the price of the oil! 

I have been using this for a couple of days now and I have to say my hair feels a lot smoother and appears to have a nice shine through it. I have blonde hair naturally but get slices of a pre-lightner put through it to keep it looking nice and bright and fresh. I really like this 'balm', it is banana yellow in colour and has quite a nice fresh scent to it. I like that the packaging is nice and small and has a secure sturdy lid and pump. You get 100ml of product which is just great, if you use one pump (depending on the length of your hair) at a time then this should last you quite a long time. 

I love trying out new hair products, I reckon you should change your hair care routine up a bit now and again. Label.m was introduced to me a while ago now but I am just getting around to experimenting with different products from their line. Also, another reason to maybe give this a try, I was informed that the majority of the stylists at my salon prefer Label.m products to Tigi.
