REVOLUTION – Makeup Revolution London Review/Swatch

Hi<333

It has been a while since I posted, I apologize! It has been a crazy couple of months. This semester I have been paying for college by myself, along with my other bills it’s been piling up on me. I want to start my videos again soon, I’m just in a bit of a financial crutch. I will hopefully be able to start my videos again starting in 2016.

I bought a couple things at Ulta, but I was really excited to find these for you guys. I’ve heard a couple things about the Revolution London brand on YouTube, so I thought I would give these a shot!

‘Welcome to the Pleasuredome’ is an salvation eyeshadow palette with 18 colors. 6 matte, 12 shimmer shades in this baby. Let’s see the swatches. I also love the packaging. Super hot!

A lot of these shades remind me of my Naked palette (the first one) from Urban Decay. I always love nude and brown shadows since that is what I usually do every day. The shimmering ones didn’t look to pigmented on my skin, but I think with a primer they will show up better when I wear them in a look.

Here are the matte swatches which are the bottom six shades and circular shaped pans in the palette. These shades remind me of the Naked Palette from Urban Decay.

Love the way these look. I wore the palette today, and with a primer they show up so much better!!! You get a lot of product and each color is very pigmented…WITH a primer.

I also picked up the blush palette.

These are so so so so so so beautiful. SO….beautiful. These blushes have 5 matte blushes, 2 baked and 1 shimmer. Some of these blushes could also be used as a contour since my complexion is pretty pale, so I might try that out! Here are my swatches.

I swatched these in the same order of the palette, with the baked blushes. I love all these 🙂

These palettes were only 10$ each at Ulta, definitely a YES and a high recommend. I hope you guys pick these up if you like the swatches. I used both of these today and nothing sweated off or anything 🙂 Fantastic products! More reviews on the way ❤

Why I love Makeup

I know what you are thinking after my title…Oh great, another post about yet another female being makeup obsessed, nothing new here *yawn*. But before you shy away from this post, I thought I would make it clear why I enjoy makeup products. I enjoy buying, swatching, using and playing with makeup. It’s fun to me.

The way society is shaped today has created a stereotype of females needing makeup to walk out of the house. I, along with many other females I know, have no trouble stepping out of the house with nothing but our skin on. If I’m going to HEB or Target to pick up some groceries 15 minutes from my house, I don’t feel the need to get a full face on. However, there is nothing wrong with wearing makeup to the grocery store. (For you non-texans, HEB is like a Kroger or Publix). I go in there and see females dolled up all the time, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

When I don’t wear makeup, I look different. That is a no brainer, and you would think that it would be an easy concept but many people ask me if I’m sick when I simply have a naked face. I don’t really take offense to this, because the naturalness of my freckles and dark circles show.

When I do wear makeup, I look different. Obvs. People don’t understand that I genuinely enjoy these products. I don’t need them to feel beautiful. Nobody specifically needs any material items. (Besides food, water and shelter of course). I am perfectly okay with putting up pictures of me on social media without any makeup on. I use to have a problem with it, but my confidence has grown to an extreme high, especially after I graduated high school. 8 am classes in college are no time for winged liner and false eyelashes everyday. That gets old real quick, really really quick. (Drake Voice*)

I love makeup because you can be creative. You can wear blue lipstick and orange eyeliner with green eyeshadow and a red blush. You can wear really big wings or you can pile lashes on lashes. It’s all fun to me. I know I am beautiful without products and material items of makeup. My goal is to make other people feel the same way that I do. That makeup should be enjoyable and fun, and not a dreadful process to put on just so you feel acceptable.

Recently, I did a photoshoot with a friend and I went natural for my first outfit which was swimwear. I will be sharing pics of my NATURAL face for you loves. I hope you all enjoy and feel confident. Love the skin you are in! Wear makeup freely and have fun with it! Don’t let society control what you are supposed to look like. You are all beautiful, and I know that sounds super cliche and weird because I don’t know all of my followers individually, but I guarantee you are all beautiful in your own way.   

 I hope this post inspires you to be okay with going natural. I hope you are inspired to wear blue lipstick. I hope you are inspired to feel confident in your skin and nothing else. I hope you are inspired one way or another and I hope you are inspired to feel confident 24/7.

I love you,
Ambz.

BEAUTY # TAG ! ♡

I decided to do this fun little TAG I’ve been seeing by a couple of my favorite youtubers, so I decided to give it a shot! Don’t mind my awkardness. I actually had a lot of fun making this and I will definitely be making more TAG videos in the future. Whoever thought of these questions is somewhat of a genius because I really had to think on some of these, lol. Here are the questions I answered:

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
4.) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
