First off, I want to apologise for not posting of late. My excuse is in the form of a little thing called, work. I’m finding blogging vs working is a fine balance. Obvs work has to take precedence (I mean I need to be able to fund my make up habit!), but when I have days of simply working, followed by dinner and then bed, I find there isn’t the time or even the content to post.
So now I have a week of annual leave, my task, should I wish to accept it, is to schedule a number of posts so I do have content to share with you, including some of the bits I have brought recently and a valentines cake blog. Plus more!
So onto today’s topic, which is make up! And in particular what your money gets you should you pay a lot or a little.
Now, a make up brand I have come to love is Makeup Revolution and I discovered this by chance in a large Superdrug store about a year ago. I was looking for an affordable eye shadow palette and happened to pick up one of Makeup Revolutions palettes for a mere £4 and gave it a go.
And I was pleasantly surprised! I mean, I normally go for Benefit, Revlon, L’Oreal and Urban Decay for my eyeshadows, palettes normally more that twice the price of Makeup Revolution but boy was I glad I tried it! The colours and consistency are such a great dupe of Urban Decay’s Naked palettes.
To prove this point I have a couple of photo’s below to show the closeness in colours between the two brands.
Now I’m not dissing Urban Decay as I do love their eye palettes, as such I have three of them and I esp love the packaging and you do get your bang for your buck. But if you are looking for a more purse friendly alternative I would highly recommend Makeup Revolution.
Since discovering the wonders of Makeup Revolution (did you know they have only been around for 2 years!), I have gone on to buy their eyebrow pencil, cheek highlighter and lipsticks.
The only down side is it is only stocked in larger Superdrug stores, which my local one is just that bit too small to stock it 🙁 Still whenever I visit Brighton, or Southampton for example, I normally pick up an item or two.
What I also love is their ‘I love makeup’ range, which has such fab packaging, their eye palettes look like bars of chocolate! And their highlighters are in heart shaped pots. So cute!
If you want to check out Makeup Revolution for yourself, you can check them out here.
Btw this a non sponsored ad, just me sharing my love of Makeup Revolution and if you haven’t tried it all ready I’m sure it won’t take you long to be hooked like me!
