MAKEUP REVOLUTION WEEK #2: STROBE AND CONTOUR ON THE BUDGET

Welcome to Day 2 of Makeup Revolution Week :) I'm already way too excited for my weekend away in London to celebrate with the brand and sing Adam and the team a very loud Happy Birthday :) But enough about me, today I'd like to share with you my newest contour/strobing favourites from Makeup Revolution. Are you ready?



Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate and Duo Face Sculpt remind me a lot of recent limited edition offerings from MAC (MAC Sculpt & Shape review here). Both come in plastic packaging with transparent lid with logo and product name. I already own Ultra Bronze which is similarly packaged and writing comes off pretty quickly. Both are large and there's a lot of product in each so they will last you forever. Both priced at only £4.00 so total bargain. Available here.

Pro Illuminate is a gorgeous golden highlighter. It's very finally milled, with no glitter. It swatches beautifully. I've been using it non stop as it's just gorgeous on the skin. Golden highlighters can sometimes be too dark on pale skin, but this one isn't. It provides an amazing highlight effect and you can go really light or full on strobe if you so wish. Formula is just lovely, it's so soft, it's almost creamy to touch. I highly recommend this highlight to anyone. It will look beautifully on fair skin as well as darker tones. Shop here.

Duo Face Sculpt contains matte highlight of a very natural light beige tone and matte bronzer. It looks warm in the packaging, however swatched and on the skin it has a very lovely neutral tone. I was afraid it would look orange on me, but don't fret. It blends beautifully to a very natural effect. It's super easy to contour with. I use the matte highlight to set my under eye concealer as well as to set the foundation with and it's really great :) It doesn't look cakey on top of my foundation which is a huge success. If I'm to compare it to MAC Sculpt and Shade, I prefer matte highlight from MAC but contour shade from Makeup Revolution. Buy here.

Overview:
I really enjoy using both products, but my favourite must be the highlighter. It's just so pretty and looks amazing on the skin. If you're on the lookout for a new gold highlight, you should really check it out, you won't be disappointed :)

    2. Dear Beauty Insiders,

      I’d like to Introduce you to… the one and only makeup brush you’ll ever need.

      Why you need it:

      Mieoko’s flat top brush is perfect for medium to heavy coverage – that doesn’t look caked on. It will never leave your foundation uneven – we promise. Our brush is made from only the finest quality high density synthetic taklon bristles. The new Mieoko Flat Top Brush is an essential addition to your makeup bag. Our flat kabuki makeup brush provides you with a flawless and seamless makeup application – every single time.

      And the best part? It doesn’t shed. Your pets shed, your makeup brushes shouldn’t.

      These brushes usually sell for $24.00. But today we’re going to give it to you absolutely free.

      And remember – you’re getting it totally free.

      So what are you waiting for? Get yours before it’s gone. Supplies are very limited. All brushes will be given out on a first come first serve basis.

      Click here now to get your FREE Mieoko Flat Top Makeup Brush.

      Why would we do that?

      To promote our fabulous new American Beauty Association

      We went through a process of hand selecting the softest most cruelty-free brushes we could find. Our makeup brush has been compared to the Sigma – F80 Flat Top, the #1 selling brush on Amazon.

      Put yourself back in control of your coverage, with one less caked-on layer of foundation. The Mieoko flat top brush allows nothing to stand between you and your makeup application. Imagine perfect skin all day, every day 24/7.

      It works with all makeup, including creams, liquids, minerals, powders and does not soak up excessive amounts of product like other brushes. And that’s just for starters. This small compact brush is really handy for on-the-go full coverage, whether it’s a quick car mirror fix or a little late afternoon pick-me-up.

  2. I just got the pro illuminate. I was expecting it to be a bit darker than it is. I'm not disappointed but it is a little bit pale. For such a large highlighter I was hoping it would be just right. i can still use it of course, just sparingly. xx
