Makeup Revolution London Blush Palette in Blush Goddess.

Is it just me who thinks Superdrug are truly outdoing themselves lately with Super High Quality Affordable Makeup Brands? I think not!  One of my latest discoveries is to the amazing Makeup Revolution and in this post I will be reviewing their Blush Goddess Palette – which was my first introduction to Highlighter!

Not only are their products quality and long lasting, but they are incredibly affordable – what could be better?! Therefore, as soon as I saw and tried out this wonderful Blush Palette in, “Blush Goddess” I knew that I simply had to purchase one for myself. At just £6, yes you read that correctly, you get eight blushes; four of them are matte shades and the other four are shimmer shades. Each blush is highly pigmented and perfect if you love a rosy pink glow for the Spring and Summer Seasons, or all year round if you’re like myself and stay away from the bronzing.

I’ve been using this for a good few months now and the palette is showing virtually no signs of wear, so I won’t be needing to buy another anytime soon. Plus, I rarely find a palette in which I like all of the shades and use them regularly, but, this is the first one which breaks the mold! I think this is because most of the shades are fairly similar, therefore if you mostly wear pink and peachy shades – this is the palette for you. However, fear not! Makeup Revolution have a wide variety of products available, with at least six other palettes on offer, I love that they cater for everyone’s preferences! Who doesn’t love a variety?!

For fellow makeup lovers like myself who like to glow and sparkle, not only is this product a blusher, but the four shimmer shades are basically alternatives to highlighter! Therefore, I usually use a matte shade first, preferably the third pink on the bottom line and after applying I go to the top line and add a shimmer overlay – most often the second highlighter. I love how well the colours blend together, they create such a wonderful glow, so much so that a little goes a long way and if you’re looking for the less is more approach, one swipe will definitely be enough.

I’m so happy this palette was  my first introduction to highlighter as I had four beautiful shades to mix and match with and also four matte blushes all for such an amazing price! The only negative I can really think of and if I’m honest – it’s not really a negative, is that this brand is exclusive to Superdrug, so if you  don’t have one near you then that could be a problem. Also, there is no mirror in the palette, but that’s not really an issue and can’t really be expected for the price. However, thanks to the modern world of technology, you can easily order online!


I’m wearing the third Blusher on the lower section and the first three of the Blush Highlighters on my face. The yellow shade I applied in the corners of my eyes, my cupids bow and below my eyebrow bone and the first two pink shades I applied on my cheeks.

The packaging is simple but very classy and as much as I love pretty packaging, I’d much rather have a quality product any day. Ultimately, they let the makeup do the talking! I can definitely say that I will hope to purchase more Makeup Revolution products in the future and next on my list is definitely their Blush Queen palette, which looks even more vibrant and pink than Blush Goddess!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost in Peach Goddess.

If there’s anyone I have to thank for the discovery of Highlighter, it’s the beautiful Jeffree Star! When I heard about the whole contour/highlight trend I thought it was fascinating, but never really thought about trying it as the contouring, looked way too complicated and intimidating for me to try on my pale skin. The highlighting on the other hand, looked absolutely beautiful, I mean who doesn’t want to glow? However, I was unsure whether I had the skills of mastering the shine and releasing my inner glitter goddess.

However, that all changed when I started watching Jeffree’s YouTube Channel and discovered his incredible Skin Frosts! I’d always appreciated the beauty of highlighters, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a product so beautiful as these incredibly pigmented compacts. Not only that, the shades in the collection are extremely unique and bold – if you want to glow and stand out then these are the ones for you!

When I discovered that the UK Stockists, Beauty Bay had the Skin Frosts in stock I knew that I simply had to try and get one! After falling in love with lilac highlighters, I was really hoping to get Lavender Snow however, only three of the shades were in stock. Therefore, I settled with Peach Goddess, although I wasn’t quite sure how the colour would look on me – I thought it was the best option out of the limited choice left.

Peach Goddess is described as a, “crushed pearly pink” and overall I would agree that is a fairly accurate description. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the pink tint of the product as that meant I didn’t need to use blusher as well. As I was expecting, the pigment of the highlighter is absolutely incredible, with such high coverage that a little does really go a long way – but, who said less is always more?!

The packaging is signature Jeffree and features his iconic barbie pink bold statement colour with the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Logo. Not only that – I am one for details and I noticed that the label name actually matches the shade of the highlighter! Furthermore, the size of the product is incredibly large, so should definitely last a very long time. It’s without doubt the biggest highlighter I’ve ever seen so even though the price is pretty high at £25.50, you definitely get your money’s worth. The compact also features a mirror which is very useful if you’re on the go and want to check your makeup is all in one place.

The only negative I can think of – and it’s not even a bad thing as most highlighters don’t come with one – is that the compact does not come with a highlight brush – so make sure you already have one, unless you want to use your fingers!

I absolutely can’t wait to purchase another Skin Frost – I hope to soon be able to buy Regina George and I look forward to seeing all the new shades Jeffree releases in the future.
