Beauty Boulevard & Glitter Lips.

Makeup is without doubt one of my favourite things and being the girlie girl I am, adding a little sparkle is always a huge plus. Therefore, when browsing all things beauty related on Instagram, I stumbled upon the dream; Beauty BLVD’s Glitter Lips. That’s right, glitter for your lips – a sparkling pout like no other! As soon as I saw them I basically felt like I could recreate Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers on my lips and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to do that? There really is no limit in the world of makeup!

Beauty Boulevard are the first Brand to revolutionize the Glitter Lips formula and I am so happy for this product to my first experience to use for creating this amazing look. Not only does it look absolutely incredible, it’s long lasting for up to eight hours and is easy to apply – in just three easy steps. Furthermore, Glitter Lips are kiss, drink, smudge and waterproof, so it’s safe to say my expectations are pretty much through the roof.

With over 18 colours available, there is a huge variety to choose from and so many bold and creative looks to come up with. If you’re not ready to be this adventurous with makeup then you probably wont be adding a Glitter Lip to your collection anytime soon, but they’re are some gorgeous subdued shades too. I was kindly gifted the gorgeous shades, Forbidden and Vintage Pretty – both are absolutely stunning and I can’t thank Beauty Boulevard enough for picking colours I would choose myself! The Glitter Lips are £12.50 to buy and for this amount you receive the gloss bond, glitter shade and applicator brush. Personally, I feel this is a pretty good price for such a unique product and you get everything you need in one amazing kit!

The products all have such captivating names, which ironically enough is one of my favourite things about makeup. Therefore, I discovered the icing on the cake when looking through the shades and seeing a stunning red called, Ruby Slippers – what are the chances?!

Psychic abilities aside, if that wasn’t enough, Beauty Boulevard kindly sent me one of their Trinity Tri Colour Lip Tint’s in the shade Lust, from the Confessions range. Each one is created with Coconut Oil, Jojoba and Beeswax, which is the must have combination for that perfect pout.  As described, this gorgeous lip tint features not one, but three colours – a coral, pink and purple, which blend together to leave your lips feeling highly moisturized and glossy. As stated before, this isn’t a bold, dramatic lipstick – it is a lip tint, so  if you’re after a statement eye catching lip then this probably isn’t for you. However, if you like a more subtle, everyday sheen with a hint of colour then this is definitely for you!

Thankfully, creating the Glitter Lips turned out to be a lot easier than I was expecting, which is another bonus! All you need to do is to follow the four steps; make sure your lips are dry and product free. Next, apply the glue onto your bottom and top lip, but separately and wait for it to change from white to clear. Once this has happened, then take the brush and dip it into the glitter pot and create the iconic look! Lastly, dust anyway any extra or unwanted product. Ultimately, I was surprised by how pigmented the glitter was on my lips, a little really does go a long way! Also, if you’re worried about it falling off easily – it’s actually really tough to remove, which if you ask me, is a very good thing! The Glitter Lips will definitely be staying put all night long.

Although it may feel a bit strange at first, (I mean it’s not every day you put glitter on your lips, is it?) once the product has all been applied and has set, then you quickly become accustomed to it. Both shades look exactly as they do on the website, so you can be sure you’re getting the desired colour. Furthermore, Beauty Boulevard’s products are all cruelty free, meaning not only are they interested in producing high quality beauty buys, but they do it in a kind and humane way.

Please note, I pride myself in making sure I write honest reviews and although I was fortunate enough to be gifted these items, I was not told to say any of the following statements I have made.

Lastly, a huge thank you to Abi from Beauty Boulevard for gifting me these amazing products!

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!

Makeup Revolution London Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in Keep Crying For You.

Today for the first time, I tried one of the many new lipsticks that I recently purchased; Make Up Revolution’s Lip Lacquer in Keep Crying For You. This Brand is exclusive to Superdrug and thanks to one of my closest friends who introduced me to them, I finally tried it  and I’m so happy that I did!

As soon as I saw the liquid lipsticks I knew that I had to try them, I think these products are currently the huge hype in the make up world and I have to agree, I’m very much in love with them – it’s such a cool idea! What’s even better about Makeup Revolution is it’s so affordable, I bought this lipstick for just £3! For such a bargain I definitely couldn’t miss out on trying one and I decided to go for a hot pink, something that stands out and is very feminine.

Obviously for the product being so cheap I wasn’t expecting wonders, however, I was personally surprised overall with how much I liked it. When I started to apply the lipstick I noticed it did look pretty streaky and I did feel slightly worried. However, the formula dried down very quickly and looked completely pigmented and bold. I did use my lip brush for the base coat of my lipstick, then the wand for the overall production which I found very good for shaping the colour.

I first applied the lipstick this morning and after having lunch a few hours later I did notice that a fair amount of the product had been removed from my lips. To be fair, there was still a lot of lipstick present, but as I like my  lipstick to be extremely prominent, I did reapply another coat for the photos. I would recommend if wearing this all day then you should definitely take it with you as it isn’t hugely long lasting, but that is to be expected for such a cheap price.

I adore the overall look of the lipstick, it really does dry very quickly and changes into a bold matte formula. Personally, I do think the lipstick does start to feel slightly drying but with the matte finished I’m not that surprised – a lot of liquid lipsticks can tend to create this overall feel. However, this doesn’t put me off wearing these lipsticks, although it can feel a bit strange it doesn’t really bother me and if it does bother you, then simply apply a lip closs or semi sheer lipstick over it.

The packaging is very much like the Kylie Jenner and Anastasia Beverley Hills liquid lipsticks, it looks just like a lip gloss – but we all know it’s not! The lipstick comes in a gorgeous rose gold packaging which I really love – this seems to be the colour of the moment for sure! Another good thing about this lipstick is when you touch it, the product stays on and does not come off on your fingers, it really is matte.

My conclusion is I will definitely be purchasing more lipsticks from Makeup Revolution and other products too. I think they are very good quality for such a cheap price and they have a huge variety of lipsticks available, so if you’re not into liquid lipsticks then there are four other categories to choose from. I’ve just worked out, that I could buy five of their lipsticks compared to just one mid to high range product which is very appealing!
