Product review time

It’s been a while since I have done one of these.
I did say I would do one at the end of last month, *slaps hand for not doing it*
Ok so my first product I am reviewing is the Fortune favours the brave by makeup revolution
I was so excited when I got my hands on this. I had heard such good reviews on it. The colours are great. I love them. There are a few colours that I do really like but sadly being paled skinned don’t show up well, but work well as a light highlight. The colours are well pigmented and providing you use an eye primer stay on quite well too. You can buy this product for £9.99 it’s one of their dearer products but the fact that it comes with a fab brush makes it so worth it. 7/10

2nd product is again makeup revolution. Like angels eyes
This product I love love love. I love the colours. I love how well they blend and how long they stay on. This product I really do recommend. If you like to experiment with colours shades then this is so for you and for £8 you’d be crazy not to try it. I found using a good eye shadow brush gives you better blending. 9/10

3rd and final one is from Avon, It’s the Clearskin Blemish clearing 3-in-1 cleanser scrub and mask. I was really blown away by this product. I have tried so many different skin products. Something to make my skin actually feel good and look better then it has done in years. This product dose that. I know I say I love a product at lot, but this one wow I am struggling to fault it. From the first use I noticed a difference. My skin feels so much softer it’s less oily in my oil prone spots and less dry is my dry prone spots. it’s currently £5 and sometimes appears on an offer.
Not saying any of that to boost my sales, saying because it is honestly 100% a great product. I give this product 10/10

Better late then never: Product review

I was meant to have done this a few days ago. For a few weeks I have been using products that I had not used before. Some just because they were on offer and I thought i’d give it a go and others because I had heard good thing about them. review.jpg

These are the products I have been using.
The charcoal face scrub I had to stop using after a few tries. You use once or twice a week. I found that yea my skin did feel nice after for a very small period of time, then it just started to feel irritated. It made my cheeks go a little red and blotchy. It was only £1 in Savers, so it wasn’t really much money wasted there.
The Garnier micellar cleansing water I quite like. They sell the bottle in 2 sizes. This one is the small of the 2 and I picked it for £1 in poundworld. After using this my skin felt so much fresher. It dose a good job of taken off your make up. I use it twice a day. once in the morning to get rid of any excess oils on my face. (I tend to have oily skin) and once in the evening to rid of any make up that my skin hasn’t soaked up over the course of the day.
And lastly Garnier refreshing toner. I’m exactly sure on the whole purpose on facial toner but one thing I have noticed since using the product is that my pores don’t seem so large, which in my book is a win win. Again after using it my skin felt great and felt like it had been cleansed. I have also found that it helps with taking of any makeup that the cleanser did not.
So my ratings:
Charcoal face scrub – 2/5
Good price, but irritated my skin.

Garnier micellar water: 5/5
Struggled to find something bad about the product. Can be found at a really good price. Loved how it made my skin feel

Garnier refreshing toner: 5/5
Price wise its pretty good, you expect to pay that much for a branded product sometimes more. If I recall rightly I paid around £3.50. Although I had actually used some of my Boots points to pay for it. Again loved the way my skin felt after I had used it and love love love the fact my pores don’t seem as large as they once did.

Product review

I haven’t done one in a little while so thought I would do one tonight.
Tonight I am going to review Make up Revolution oil control fixing spray.
I was always under the impression that a fixing spray was meant to help keep your make up in place for longer. I am still pretty new to the whole make up scene so please bare with me and let me know if I get anything wrong.
So I’ve tried this spray a few times now at £5 a bottle I thought I was a fair to pay. My skin can get a little oily from time to time and quite a few people had been talking about fixing spray so thought I’d give it a go. As far as oil control goes it seems ok, as far as keeping your make up in place. Not so much. I found my make up actually went faster with the spray on then without. Now i’m not sure if this is because I applied a primer to my face before all my make up and fixing spray or not but I would have thought that shouldn’t have mattered. I have put in a link to the product. They say at one point that is uses “High Tech ingredients keep foundation and eye makeup in place, with NO smudging and NO fading. That ‘Just-Applied’ look for up to 12 hours”
So yea up to 12 hours, pretty much a days work for most. But what stands out most to me is the “with NO smudging and NO fading
They must be pretty confident in the product to say that. I must admit it did a good job on my eye shadow, the colour stayed all day. I still got that little bit where it clumps a little in the crease of your eyes but the colour stayed. My foundation how ever faded. By the time I went to take it off barely anything was left on my face.
The bottle it self is a nice simple design. I like the gold touch they have put on the bottle and I can’t stand the colour gold. I think where the gold has a bit of a shine to it, it adds a bit of elegance to it. Overall I rate the product 3 stars.
