SWATCHES & REVIEW : Makeup Revolution [Part Two]

Sawasdee ka~

How could I resist buying more lipstick when I have a chance. If you can remember I did swatches and review on various products from Makeup Revolution earlier last week.  As you can see there were too many products to show in one post so I will continue my second part here. If you are lipstick lover you might like this post.
I'm a lipstick junkie and my lipstick collection is growing bigger and bigger each day. However I feel like there is something missing from my collection. Last year I showed my lipstick collection in my lipstick tag post and on the last question that ask about lipstick I'm lust after. My answer was I lust after odd lipstick colours. So finally I have a chance to buy it at a very cheap price tag. Believe it or not, it only costs me £1 - £2.99 each. To be honest I was a bit skeptical about the quality of a £1 lipstick but what is the worst that can happen? At the end I manage to buy 7 lipsticks in total!

Well I'm not only after odd colour but, as you can see, I also buy peachey nudey shades. I only bought 3 odd shade as I'm not quite sure whether I will like it.
Obviously the packaging doesn't look appealing, at least for me. The lid comes off easiliy so bare that in mind if you think about putting it in you bag. Well, but that is what I expect from cheap lipstick anyway.

The consistency of pigment is vary from colour to colour. I would say Depraved (purple) is the best out of 3 odd colours. It's glide on really well and has good enough pigment to cover my lip colour but Atomic (green) and Felony (yellow) are the opposite. Pigment is not that great and they made my lips look streaky. I have to applied few coats to get the right colour. However, at this price tag I don't want to do much complain.

For Bliss, Marshmellow Kiss Baby doll and Dream about success. They all stay on for a good amount of time. I find it is better to put a bit of lip balm or concealer on my lips first.
Overall I actually really like these lipsticks.  For the price I really can't complain that much and the quality is not bad at all. I think they are good for experimenting with new colour. Especially if you are after odd shade and don't want to spend too much money on lipstick that you know you probably use just  few times. Makeup Revolution is a good destination.

Have you tried lipstick from Makeup Revolution before? What do you think about it?

SWATCHES & REVIEW : Makeup Revolution [Part One]

Sawasdee ka~

I have seen posts about Makeup Revolution for awhile but I've never had a chance to have a good look at this brand until recently. The brand is well-known for making a good dupe from a good brand with an affordable price. After I play around with the items I ordered I can confirm that they provide pretty good quality products too
❤︎ Essential Matters 2 Eyeshadow Palette (£4)
Some of you might already know that MakeUp revolution makes a perfect palette dupe for Urban Decay Naked and swatches on the internet sure look convincing. However I already owned Nake 2 and 3 so I prefer something different. I end up order this matte eyeshadow palette which I love...the pigment and colour are amazing! Although I have to say I didn't like the packaging but with this price tag I don't expect much anyway. This palette also comes with a sponge applicator but I never use them as I prefer using my finger or brushes.
Swatches from left to right as you can see them in the palette
The palette has 12 shades with neutral colours that perfect for everyday use. All of them gives a really good colour payoff. You can build up the colours to however heavy or sheer you like.
❤︎ Iconic Pro Blush, Bronze and Brighten-Flush (£4)
Is it look familiar to you? It looks exactly like Sleek Makeup highlight and contour palette. Again it shows a good colour payoff on your skin.

❤︎ I ♡ Makeup Blushing Hearts-Peachy Pink Kisses (£4.99)
Again, this is another dupe for Two Faces Hearts Blusher but I don't own any of them so I can't really compare the quality. The blush inside is gorgeous with 3 different shades but I only do a one swatch for the mix of 3 together. I think most of you will use it that way anyway. It's very shimmery blush which will be noticeable if you look closely.

❤︎ Ultra Aqua Brow Tint in Medium (£3)
Another product that remind me of Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow. It's something I've never tried before so I think I shall start of with Makeup Revolution before try more expensive one from MUFE. I love the product but it would be better if there are more shade available (currently 4 shades). It, somehow, show up a reddish brown on my brow which look quite weird but it can be fix with some dark brown eyeshadow on top. It's very pigmented so you only need small amount.

Overall I'm pretty impressed with my purchase. It's such an affordable makeup brand with great quality product. If you want to get new makeup but don't want to spend too much on it this brand would be great option to start off.

Stay tuned for part two :)

HAUL : M.A.C Isabel and Ruben Toledo Collection

 Sawasdee ka~
Last week M.A.C has launched new collection "Isabel and Ruben Toledo" which have caught my eyes since I saw the preview. I know M.A.C frequently launch new collection to the market but I don't always like it. However, I physically swooned by this. This collection is so bright and lovely to be ready for spring! In fact, it could be the most creative and coolest collection I have ever seen.
So this is the overview of what I got on Friday. Pretty isn't it?
I was lucky enough to arrive at the shop just in time before everything sold out. I bought myself an ombre blush on and 2 lipsticks. Blush on is the highlight for this collection. Can you see how gorgeous it is with those little tiny shimmer? There are 2 shades available in UK store (3 shades in some other places) in this collection and I picked Ripe Peach colour. The sales assistant actually told me that this colour is the most popular among all of the others. It's likely to sold out first. One little disappointment is there is no mirror inside the package for £25 price tag. Well I still love it anyway lol
If you love matte lipstick especially red shade then this collection is definitely for you. I'm not sure why there are so many red in this collection but they are all beautiful. I got myself one classic red shade in Opera and one peachy nude shade in Oxblood. Does that sound familiar? Oxblood is one of the most popular nude shade that sold out everytime when it is relaunch.

Do you like this collection?

My Little Box : My Little Frenchie Box

Sawasdee ka~
I know this is March and this Frenchie Box is suppose to be for February but I want you guy see how cute it is anyway. I just received this little box on Friday (27th Feb) last week which is quite late but I can't blame anyone right? Because I know that I order it a bit late. My Little Box is one of the beauty boxes in UK market. I know there are soooooo many options and this is the more recent addition to the UK. To help you decide whether you like it....Let's have a little peak inside the box :)

My first impression is the design I love the box even before I subscribe it. The box comes with cute illustrations and a unique box design each time. For a little over £10 per month (plus 3.95 delivery charge) you will normally get 2-3 beauty bits plus 2 lifestyle picks along with a pretty mini magazine.

For the Frenchie box, it is included DHC blotting paper (£4), L'Oreal Brow Pencil (£5.49), By Terry kohl pencil eyeliner (£23.50)- a gorgeous shimmery black colour! And its own brand product with adorable packaging - a peachy tinted cream for glowy skin look. Apart from the beauty products there are a little wallet for smartphone with front pocket to hold cards or even headphones and a little glass jar filled with inspiring notes which I think it's a bit random thing in a box but it's a cute idea anyway.

Unlike another boxes, the contents you receive are so unique and thoughtful. You never know what you are going to get (unless you have a peak on another blogger post) but you know that it will always lovely. However, if you are looking for a beauty box that full of beauty stuff inside this box might not be your option. But if you like to try something new in beauty box market this is the one :) For me, I love the look of it. Thinking about what I got I actually feel happy with it. For now, I will keep my subscription in least for a good few months. I will keep you updated!

What do you think about it?
