Revolution Beyond Flawless Ultra Eyeshadows Review

I didn't need another neutral eyeshadow palette, but when has that ever stopped me? Makeup Revolution released 2 new Ultra Palettes: Beyond Flawless and Flawless Mattes. The original Flawless palette is a favourite of mine. The thing I love about the packaging is that it's actually really compact for the amount of colours in there. They're really travel-freindly as the packaging is sturdy and there's a huge mirror. You can take one away and have everything you could possibly need for the week. We'll start with a closer look at Beyond Flawless. It's mostly shimmers with one or two more glittery shades, some with a pearlescent finish and of course a couple of mattes. Is it just me or is this kind of like they squeezed all 3 Naked palettes into one? The first row are your classic base and highlight colours. My favourite shades are Light Caramel, Expresso and Chestnut. Dove is also a lovely shade; it looks matte in the pan but once you apply it, it definitely has a pearly sheen. The only shade I really don't see myself using is Bare Pink as it's a bit powdery and glittery, whereas the others are smooth with a nice amount of shimmer. So far so pigmented. This next row has two matte shades; Brunette (a really nice pink-grey) and Sandstone, which looks like it has poor colour pay-off but it's actually not too bad at all; it's just basically my skin tone! I'm not mad on Nightfall as it's a little hard to blend, however in small amounts you can use it to smoke up your look a bit. I really love the colours Bronze and Autumn but Cookie Dough is a nice cooler shade too. There's only one matte shade on this row; Tawny and though it isn't that pigmented it's an easy-to-use crease colour. I think the shade I reach for most is Teddy from this set and least is Blackest, as I found it a bit hard to blend. You have pretty much any shade you need to make a neutral eye look a little more smokey and evening-appropriate.
I definitely recommend this palette to you guys, it is affordable and very good quality.

Have you tried yet any products from Revolution? Do you like this palette?

My 3 Favorite Highlighters

Hello my lovelies,

It's been a long time since I wrote a blog post, but I wasn't able at all, and I am really sorry about that. Now I am back, and I am looking forward to it to continue to write blog posts, because I simply love it. 
In this blog post I will introduce you my 3-top/favorite highlighters. I hope you enjoy this blog post and it is a really good feeling to be back here. Hope you have an amazing weekend! Lots of love!

The Balm cosmetics: Mary-Lou Manizer

If you want to be seen from the moon, this is the one you need in your life. This is BAM on your face highlighter. Mary-Lou Manizer is the one I prefer to wear for a night out. Not that you can’t wear it during the day, but if you do you are sure to be noticed. Love this one for both its formula and intensity and not to forget the packaging. If you are in for strobing, this one is made for you.

Becca Cosmetics: Opal

Becca cosmetics are known for its highlighter and this one is my personal favorite. Opal is described as “golden opal pearl” which is perfect on warm skin tone. If I compare the shade with other highlighter, it’s no different, but the formula is to die for. The texture on this one is smooth like butter, making it easy to blend. There are no glitter particles; it gives awesome natural sheen on the skin. The powder is finely milled. If you have to go with only one highlighter, I will recommend Becca in the shade Opal.

M.A.C Mineralize Skin finish: Soft & Gentle

Soft&Gentle is described as “gilded peach bronze”. It’s a warm tone highlighter with frost sheen. The powder is not finely milled and has chunky glitter, which can be clearly seen coming off from the pan. However, this drawback does not take away the beauty of the product on the skin. It’s perfect on all skin tones. If you are looking for everyday highlighter I would definitely recommend this one.  It is subtle and beautiful on the skin.

What is your favorite highlighter? Do you have any recommendations for a new highlight that I should try?
