What's New Wednesday: Blush Palette Sugar and Spice by Revolution Cosmetics

Happy Humpday Sparkles

Keeping with the theme of the week I'm enjoying giving some love to quality budget friendly items that I've been turning to since buying on a whim. Revolution Cosmetics are pretty impressive at the moment, with a high level of new product releases for purse friendly dupes of high end products.

This isn't necessarily a dupe of a single product but it's a really nice addition to any kit. There are approximately six to eight colour ways to choose from - this peachy pink edition was the one that appealed the most to me given my pale complexion.

Tutorial Tuesday: All about brows - the budget edition - Focus and Fix Brow Kit, Revolution Cosmetics

Morning Sparkles!

By popular demand I did a brow tutorial back in February (link here) however I'm conscious that some of the products used might not be priced appropriately for those just dipping a toe in the water of #browgamestrong on Instagram or Twitter.

This little baby is the Focus and Fix Brow Kit from Revolution Cosmetics. It comes in at £2.50 and can be found online here. I've gone for the medium / dark shade to trial it out. The kit has three co-ordinating tones of powder which you can use to fill in your brows and a clear wax which you can use to set them for the rest of the day.

Some dinky little tweezers and a mini slanted brow brush are also included. They're ok but I've just been using my own brush and tweezers with the product - but in a pinch the brush in particular would do the job required.

My personal opinion is that the colours (as with a lot of the less expensive, High Street brow products) is that they run a little too warm for my taste.

While I'm brunette my natural colour is cool toned and as such the browns which pull a little red aren't a perfect match. But let's be honest, for £2.50 for three shades you can't really complain and the middle shade is pretty passable if slightly light for night make-up on me.

Have you tried much by Revolution Cosmetics? What's the verdict? I for one am loving their budget friendly, quality products. Not to mention the speed of their new releases and dupes for high end, popular palettes. 

Til next time kitty kats - love, hugs and economic yet groomed brows

Manicure Monday - Quick and easy removal

Greetings Sparkles…

It's been almost a month since my last post, and hasn't time flown? Well, for me it has - in a whirl of new joiners in work and lots of accounting fun during both the day and evenings sometimes. March is looking like a massively busy month but for lots of fun reasons - not least of all the 30th birthdays of not one but two of my favourite ladies!

This morning I wanted to share with you a great little buy that you can grab in your local Boots, Superdrug or pharmacy.
