COLOURPOP X MAKE-A-WISH – SUPER SHOCK SHADOWS

Wow, that was a long break away! I’ve been super busy with uni but I’m finally back to play with makeup!

I recently purchased the Colourpop Super Shock Shadows made in collaboration with Make-A-Wish. At the time I bought them, Colourpop was a risky site to buy from because the shipping costs and customs fees could be huge. After such amazing reviews though, I’ve been desperate to try them. They retail for $5.00 which is about £4.00… bargain. Plus, 20% of the profits from this collection go to Make-A-Wish until 11 Jan 2019.

MY MAKEUP BRUSH AND SPONGE COLLECTION

My collection of makeup brushes for an average makeup wearer is both embarrassing and something I’m proud of – I guess I can only be as good as my tools! So, I’m going to get into all the different brushes and sponges I have and what I use them for.

I’ve included pictures of the brushes as a whole and then close up so you can see their density and size. Also, please excuse the lack of cleanliness lol (in my defense, they’ve only been used once since cleaned last week so aren’t due another yet haha)

TRYING REVOLUTION BEAUTY

It’s by far the hottest cheap makeup brand around at the moment, with highly recommended products, so I thought I’d order myself a small bundle to test out Revolution Beauty.

I decided to order from Revolution Beauty’s website, which meant I had access to all their sub-brands and ordered a few products from a lot of them to get a full sense of the brand.

Below is the rundown of what I bought, how much for (at time of purchase) and my take after testing them for almost a month.

*There’s also an up to 50% summer sale on rn (18/6) on some items so it’s a good time to try it out for yourself!!

BEST EYESHADOW PALETTES FOR BROWN SKIN

After searching long and hard, and going through some pretty rubbish palettes, I have found my two holy grail eyeshadow palettes that are pigmented enough for brown skin and compliment my skin tone perfectly!

I’ve included an example look from each palette to show the pigment, and starred the shadows I used in the palette. My eyeshadow skills really aren’t amazing, and my looks could be a lot more adventurous, but I hope it simply shows that the shadows have so much potential and do an amazing job even with me!

MY FAVOURITE BRAND – NYX

There is one brand who I absolutely adore that I keep coming back to and that is (surprise!) NYX! Although not all my makeup is from there (obvs) I use many of their products in my go-to makeup routine.

Here’s a rundown of my favourite products and let me know if there’s anything you swear by that I need to try out!

I own a ton of lipsticks by NYX, but I’m saving them for a lipstick collection post, so stay tuned!
