Mac Face and Body Review C1

Hello :)

So I wanted to share with you guys today something I wish i had tried long before. Being a pale person I have been going to Mac for my foundation as they have a great shade range. This first foundation i tried from them was the studio sculpt(NC15), which i have a love hate relationship with, sometimes i love it and sometimes it looks terrible on my skin. Then I tried then i tried the match master foundation (1.0) and i used and it was alright but i didn't notice amazing results.

I think for me was that i was matched with the wrong tone, although i have a lot of redness in my cheeks i am yellow undertoned, however i thought the make-up artist knew best. Now i am older i realise that i shouldn't just listen the their opinion.

Okay... so enough rambling.
Mac Face and Body is by far the best foundation i have personally tried for my skin, which is a combination of everything. For starters it is better colour match as it has a more yellow undertone meaning that it blends really well and looks a lot more natural. The foundation itself has quite a light texture and you can not feel it on your face one you have applied it, which it something i love. If left without power it has a slight sheen to it giving me a dewy look. The foundation is quite a light coverage, however it is easily build able, which i prefer for a night out.

So far i have not found anything that i really dislike about the foundation and will continue to keep using it as my everyday.

A Blush Revolution?

Hi guys :)

So you may have heard of the brand Makeup Revolution. They are a brand stocked by Superdrug here in the UK, with a price point very similar to MUA. I know that you can buy their products online too.

I have heard a lot of rave about the eyeshadow palettes in the beauty blogger sphere, and how they are a dupe for Urban Decay. However, I do not see a lot of their blush palettes, which is what I was most interested about. I managed to get my hands on sugar and spice palette, and i have to say i am really impressed with it.

The sugar and spice palette

You don't find many blush pallets in the drug store so i loved that there was on the market for such a little price. They retail for £6. For your money you get 6 large blushes, as well as 2 highlights. All of which are highly pigmented.

The sugar and spice palette is full of pink toned blushes, with 2 more brown blushes with pink undertones.
There is also the Hot space palette are more and orange and coral toned blushes.
The have also recently released the Golden sugar palette which has 4 bronzers, 2 blushes and 2 highlighters.

The sugar and spice pallette 

If you are looking for some new blushers in your life but don't want to break the bank then i would say this is the one for you.
