Makeup Revolution Rainbow Highlighter | Review

Hi Flamingos, I hope you are all well?
Highlighters are a must have for me when I wear makeup because I just love how bright they make my complexion. I have tried a fair few now over the years from budget to premium and to be honest most work wonderfully especially if you use it with a makeup setting spray. I think I have about 5 highlighters in my makeup collection and I knew it was time to get another so went to Superdrug to see if any of the affordable highlighters caught my eye and OMG the choices was so extensive! I wanted them all but I ended up going for this Rainbow Highlighter from Makeup Revolution and it cost me an affordable £4. 

Makeup revolution sell  a vast selection of makeup and are a budget beauty brand with very affordable makeup products such as makeup, brushes etc. I discovered this brand not so long after when it released a few years back and since then they have brought out so many different products and this is a newish product and its inspired by the rainbow and of course our obsession with highlighters at the moment.

Its simple but perfect in my opinion, it has a chrome effect border and also chrome effect writing on it too. It wasn't so easy to take a picture of because of the chrome but it looks amazing in real life. Its very light and feels good compared to its price but on the plus size the pan is full of product which is brilliant, no areas missed out.

I am not sure if I like the texture of this or not but at first when I put it on my hands it did feel rather chalky but it felt so much softer and more vibrant when applied to the skin.

I love how easily this went onto my skin!! It took very little effort for me to get this on my cheek bones evenly without much fallout at all. I wore this to the wedding last weekend and I couldn't stop applying it because it looks GORGEOUS! Once its on the skin you can see all the lovely pastel shades of the rainbow with a iridescent glow, I would go as far to say it made me feel like a mermaid, I mean really it is a magical product.

Thankfully this had barely a scent to it at all which is brilliant because I am not a fan of makeup if it has too much of a fragrance as it puts me right off wearing it.

Does it last?
Well it sure does if you apply a makeup setting spray which I do everyday now in the summer over wise my makeup wouldn't last long at all.

My Thoughts 
I love everything about this product and there isn't anything I can falter about it to be honest, I love it so much that if this ever runs out I would defiantly consider buying this again because it is a lovely show stopping highlighter for a bargain price.

Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Kits | Review

makeup revolution retro luxe matte lip kits review
"Hands up if you love lipstick! I know I sure do" - I have lost count of how many I actually have but thats OK! The reasons being that it is ok is because I love to have a variety and another reason for me has to be that no two lipsticks are the same, they all have their uniqueness to them whether it be the shade or the finish of the actual lipstick. 

Makeup Revolution has been a favourite brand of mine pretty much since they started out almost 3 years ago. Ever since then the brand has grown considerably and the amount of products they have brought out during that time is MASSIVE. One of the things that Makeup Revolution are known for is very good quality dupes and affordable makeup. The lip kits just scream out similarities to the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit, which is great because this would be a great budget option.

I have been searching for these Makeup Revolution Matte Lip Kits for a few weeks since they were released and honestly they were sold out a few times before I could finally get my hands on them and when I did I treated myself to three of the lip kits - Glory, Noble and Regal. Inside the packaging they is a lip pencil and liquid lipstick.

In the range they have a choice of 8 different shades and they are a budget friendly price of just £6 each. Other shades in the range include: Reign, Grandee, Echelon, Royal and Magnificent.

This is a beautiful reddy orange shade that is very creamy when you apply it to the lips, once you apply it dries to a matte consistency. The lip liner is a similar orangey red and is as equally as creamy as the liquid lipstick.

This a gorgeous autumn/vampy reddy brown shade that I just love and I would have this has to be my favourite out of the three I bought. This one was creamy as the one above but was a little more drying once it complete dried. Unfortunately the lip liner broke but I managed to fix it and now its working just fine.

If you like nude lipsticks then this one is a very nice choice as it is a pinky nude shade and looks very too. This applied the nicest of the three and dried beautifully too. The lip liner matched this perfectly and completed the look.

My Thoughts
I love the formula of these lip kits and I have to say they are very long lasting! They can easily last most of the day without the need for reapplication. Even though I do love these lipsticks they can be a bit of  a problem once you want to remove them, it takes a lot longer to get these off compared to other lipsticks I have tried and I have tried a few products to remove it - do any of you have any suggestions for stubborn makeup removal then that would be great.

For the price I would defiantly say they are a bargain seeing as they last such a long time and the also the shades in the range are just gorgeous too.

The Good
  • The price - £6 each
  • long lasting - about 4 hours
  • good variety - 8 shades to choose from
  • Unscented - that i can smell anyway

The not so good
  • Texture - can be a bit sticky
  • Not easy to remove

Have you tried these before? What is you're favourite matte lipstick?
