Makeup Revolution I ♡ Makeup Goddess of Love Highlighter | Review

It's nearly December! Hurray, Christmas is coming. A couple of weeks ago I placed an order on Superdrug. I'm really loving the Makeup Revolution brand right now, and to see that they'd released even more products got me a tad excited. I discovered the 'Goddess of Love, triple baked highlighter' and quickly added it to my basket.

The Red Lip

Now we're into the colder months, one of the many things I love is the beautiful red and berry lip shades that creep their way back out. I really do love a darker lip but when I looked in my collection recently, I noticed I didn't actually have that many darker or just general red lip products, so I went on a little spree!

I placed an order with Superdrug taking advantage of their 3 for 2 offer and picked up a few lipsticks from MUA and Makeup Revolution, two of my current favourite brands. You can really pick up some fab quality products without breaking the bank these days and for just £1.00 these lipsticks are fantastic.

The £1 Blush

I recently placed a makeup order and added a bunch of MUA products to my basket, I have tried a lot from the range and I love their products, I guess I just wanted to add more to my collection. I think their £1 products are fantastic and the price is even better, it's amazing to be able to pick up good quality makeup for such a small cost.

I have fallen in love with the MUA blushers, if you are on the lookout for a new blusher or just want to add more colours to your collection you definitely need to head to an MUA counter. There is a big selection of colours available from light to dark and peach to pink. My local Superdrug actually didn't have all of the shades available, which was annoying as it was 3 for 2! But I did manage to get my hands on three of the shades, I think there are around six or seven in total. 

I particularly like the packaging of these little blushes, they are very compact, smart and contain a lot of product, which for £1 is again, amazing. I don't believe this little product would last long if dropped, the blush would most likely crumble, but if you're careful and remember it didn't cost much at all, they'll be fine, besides it would only be £1 to replace anyway.

An All Time Favourite

Do you ever find those products that you just buy again and again because they never fail and you just never want them to never ever become discontinued? I do! It's not that often I find a product I couldn't live without, I could definitely live without this product but I wouldn't be too happy about it!

Easy Eyes

If you're anything like me, you hate early mornings and getting ready is something I want to do quickly and easily, especially now we're into dark and cold mornings. So I'd just like to say thank you to the people who invented the products I'm going to show, those being cream and pencil eyeshadows. 

Recently I've been using cream or pencil eyeshadow non-stop, these products are effortless yet look amazing and can help you get ready for the day in minutes. Gone are the days of being late for work because you took too long doing your eye makeup ;-).

October Favourites

It's November! Seriously where is this year going, it's crazy. However we are now only less than 2 months away from the big C which is terrifying but so exciting at the same time, I absolutely love Christmas and cannot wait to enter the festive season! Anyway, on to a few of my favourite things from the month of October...
My first favourite from October is my new favourite mascara, Maybelline The Falsies in waterproof. I tried this mascara last year in the original formula and I was convinced I would love it from all of the wonderful things I'd heard, but I hated it. However since trying the waterproof formula I have completely changed my mind. This mascara is amazing, it gives a super intense black look and keeps my lashes curled and in place all day, with no fall down or smudging whatsoever. It's a little tough to remove I admit but with a helping hand from a good eye makeup remover, it's definitely worth it, and at just £7.99 it's not going to break the bank either! 
I have been using my Makeup Revolution Flawless eyeshadow palette non stop, it is a fantastic palette at just £8.00 for 32 eyeshadows. In particular I have been obsessed with the beautiful copper shades, now that we're into Autumn they are definitely perfect for this time of year. I'm so impressed by Makeup Revolution, all of their products that I've tried have been brilliant and are so inexpensive. If you like MUA products you'd love these too. These eyeshadows are so creamy and buttery, they blend like a dream and last so well on the eyes, even without a primer. 
If you read my blog regularly you'll know that I love brows, and new brow products seriously excite me. I picked up this Rimmel Brow This Way sculpting kit a few weeks ago and I have fallen in love. It is very similar to products such as Benefit Brow Zings and the ELF Brow Kit containing a tinted powder and wax. I picked the shade Dark Brown and both products are super pigmented and blend into the brows beautifully without being false or overpowering. I seriously love this product and for just £3.99 I will definitely be repurchasing it when the time comes. 
A little skincare favourite and life saver in October has been my nspa Brightening Micro-Derma Scrub, a very light and gentle facial exfoliator that very softly buffs away dead skin cells leaving a beautiful, glowy and soft complexion. I'm very cautious with exfoliators as my skin is pretty sensitive and I tend to react to aggressive or heavily scented products, this however is perfect for me. It is very light and has tiny little beads which exfoliate the skin, instead of being a scrub which would be too harsh. There is no obvious scent to this, it just does what it says on the tin.
Lastly is a little different favourite and its my new iPhone 6! Random but I have been obsessed with this since the day I got it, it is an amazing device and if you're a bit of a tech geek like me, you'll understand ;-). I moved from the iPhone 5 so the screen size is much bigger, it has touch id and is generally faster and more enjoyable to use. I've been loving using the blogger app on here now as the screen size is great for typing draft posts on the go and reading blogs on bloglovin. Previously my 5 screen was just that little bit too small so I am super happy with my new device! And I decided to buy it outright, so no stupidly expensive contract! 

What have you been loving in October?
