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 ❤

Jeffree Star Lipstick Swatches and Review

Hello loves!!

I’ve always been a huge fan of Jeffree Star. I discovered him on myspace in 2006. His music was INSANE and I loved it. He recently launched his lipsticks last Fall. He has more makeup coming out this year. I met him in April of this year and was just amazed by him. Emerald and I attended a makeup class and learned how to do a certain makeup look. He is so humble! He was extremely down to earth and sweet! We could ask plenty of questions and we got a free lipstick!

I currently have 3 of his liquid lipsticks, there are currently 13 out and available online. All of them are 100% Vegan and Cruelty free! They are only 18$ each, shipping from what I remember is around 4-6$, and I got the lipsticks within a week! I made a list of Pros/Cons.

Pros:
Long Lasting
Highly Pigmented
True Color
Vegan and Cruelty Free
Multiple uses (lipstick and eyeliner)
Dries Matte

Cons:
Hard to remove (kind of a good thing)

To remove them, I literally had to SCRUB them off my lips with a mix of soap and water, makeup remover, AND coconut oil. It’s kind of a good thing, because I ate with these lipsticks (avoid oily foods though) and they were fine! Jeffree also says they are kiss proof too 😉 xo

From top to bottom, I swatched the three lipsticks: I’m royalty, Prom Night and Abused. The picture on the left is with flash, the one on the right is without.

I know these lipsticks are bright and bold, but anyone can really rock the color. It doesn’t matter if you are light or dark, they will look good on anyone! I remember asking Jeffree a question on what looks good on who, and if certain colors look better on certain people. He told all of us in the class that we can rock anything we want to because we can do what we want. He said not to care what others think and their opinion is irrelevant.

I plan on getting a couple more of his lipsticks and can’t wait till his new other products come out! I know I’ll be reviewing more as I purchase them:} I’ll also be posting more pics of me wearing these lipsticks!
