Makeup revolution: Go to Heaven review

Here we go with the penultimate review of the Go palette’s by Makeup revolution. I will be posting one more review after this one of another palette and then I will have featured all the Go palettes. This is the Go to Heaven palette review which contains 18 pretty shades all in angelic colours.

I really like this palette as all the colours are quite soft and the darker colours could be used to create a really lovely smokey eye look. I swatched all the shades and think they would suit anyone really from the pasty people like me or even the more tanned out there. Some of the shades are a blush matte colour and other have a touch of metallic to them.

So overall my verdict on this palette is really good. I’m normally not a big eyeshadow wearer but I would feel quite comfortable with wearing any of these shades. the Palette like the others is on sale on the makeup revolution website for £3.99 so another absolute bargain!

Has anyone else tried them and done a review? I’d be really interested to read them.

Make(UP) your Smile Brighter

I received an email a few weeks ago about doing a challenge in partnership with the Yorkshire Dentistry company which was to use makeup to try and make me smile brighter. I am a big teeth person (weirdo I know!) and my teeth are one of the things I rather like about my self. I also notice teeth on other people all the time and it’s the first thing I normally look at. I reckon I look mental when I’m just staring at teeth but it’s just something I do.

They sent me a lovely parcel of makeup bits and pieces to use that might help make my teeth appear whiter and I also added my own colours as well

Here was the starting photo with nothing on at all…

I then tried out 2 lip colours one brighter than the other to see if it would help to bring out the whiteness or my teeth and compared…

I used a lipliner with one to outline my lips and then on the other used loose powder round the outline of my lips to make the look more prominent. I would definitely agree that it is possible for your teeth to shine more using a bright colour etc or even a blue toned lipstick.

The Yorkshire Dentistry company does teeth whitening packages starting from £245. I always take care of my teeth myself and brush twice a day including flossing to make sure I look after them. I had braces as a teenager and would hate to ruin all that hard work now later in life.

Have you got any makeup tricks or tips you can share for making your teeth whiter?

Makeup revolution: The Go Palette

Last week I did a review post about the Makeup Revolution Go to the City palette. I thought I would do another one about one of their other palette’s, the lovely Go Palette.

Like the Go to the city Palette, it has two lovely blusher colours, a highlighter and six eyeshadows shades. This palette is a softer one with light and neutral shades that would suit even the palest of skins, like mine. I am nicknamed Casper in my family because of my whiter than white shade so bold colours don’t look fantastic on me without blending them first.

I think the blusher and highlighter colours are lovely and peachy toned which I have swatched below along with the eyeshadow shades. These are also a metallic hue which range from soft to a smokey look. The palette is on sale on the makeup revolution website for a bargain £3.99. I had a look in my local superdrug to see if it also featured in there but the store hasnt got a very big selection of makeup revolution products so I love the website due to its huge range.

I would recommend all the products I have tried so far from makeup revolution which have included the Palette’s the primer and the matte foundation and a couple of their lipsticks.

What products have you tried that you love from their range?

Thanks
