Makeup Revolution 'The One' Blush Sticks

7 comments


Makeup Revolution are dominating the beauty industry at the moment with their affordable but amazing quality products, and their newest release exceeds expectations. Makeup Revolutions 'The One' Blush Sticks* come in 4 matte shades and 4 sheer shades, these are for use on both your cheeks and lips. They contain 12g of product and are only £5, such amazingly value.

I love the packaging, it's very elegant and sleek, something you would expect from a high-end brand. They come in large lipstick tubes with lids that just clip on securely, great if you're like me and like to throw everything into your bag without worrying if lids are going to come off anything. I like that the finish is reflected in the outside packaging, as you can see some are glossy while others are matte which shows they have really paid attention to detail with this product. Unfortunately they haven't put the names on the packaging.


The pigmentation of these is amazing, they are so highly pigmented that you only need to apply a small amount. I found that they applied easily and are very creamy so blending was a dream! I have worn these constantly the past few days and was surprised at the lasting power, I have oily skin so was expecting it to last very few hours, however it lasted me the whole day!


The sheer shades come in four different shades:
  • Dream - I have been using this as a highlighter and it is beautiful and has a shimmer.
  • Pink - A bright pink, when applied lightly you can achieve a very natural look with this but is also very easily buildable.
  • Rush - This is very sheer and shimmery, it has a red/orange tone to it.
  • Malibu - A shimmery brown shade which would be more suited to those with darker skin tones, I'm definitely too pale for this shade.

The matte shades are more intense and also come in four different shades:
  • Matte Dream - This is a great blush for lighter skin tones, I'm fairly pale and it gives me a beautiful subtle hint of colour.
  • Matte Pink - A slightly deeper pink than the sheer version.
  • Matte Rush - A peachy orange.
  • Matte Malibu - This would be good as a contour on some skin tones.
Overall I am really impressed with these and are a great alternative for NARS Multiple, especially if you don't want to pay the hefty price tag that comes with them! Have you tried any of these out yet?

‘Adore Moi by Ultimo’ A/W Collection

1 comment

Ever since attending Ultimo's Showcase in London back in July I have been in love with the brand. They never fail to amaze with the styles they bring out and quality, and their newest collection is no different. Adore Moi by Ultimo is their brand new French inspired collection which is available exclusively from Debenhams. This collection is described as the creation of beautiful, exquisitely-detailed lingerie that embodies the spirit of romance and you can really see this reflected in the pieces. 

Their new collection features Adore Moi's classic ranges 'Tigerlily' and Delphine' as well as four beautiful fashion styles. The 'Charleston' style is perfect for this time of year as it's available in black and red, perfect colours for the upcoming party season. It also has floral embroidery with a nude underlay which looks very elegant.  Another style is 'Starling which is champagne and black coloured, it has lace detailing  and has a more dramatic look. The other two new styles are 'Georgia' which is a satin multi-way bra and basque range which featured scalloped edges and 'Paulina', a burgundy floral range.



I love the quality of their products so was excited to try out a lingerie set from the new collection. I received the "Tigerlily" style* which is very pretty and feminine. The plunge bra is white with lace embroidery which looks beautiful when it catches the light. It has lightly padded cups which enhance your natural shape unlike others which can looks quite fake or make it obvious you're wearing a plunge bra, I just love that it gives a really natural look. The briefs have pretty embroidery on them with white mesh on the front going round to the back, then a cute little bow in the centre to finish it off. You can really see the French inspiration in this set, especially with the mix of mesh and embroidery.



The brand new Autumn/Winter collection is on sale now and prices start at £10.50 for briefs and £22.50 for bras. The range is available in sizes 32-38 A-DD for bras and 8-18 for briefs.

Have you seen Ultimo's new range yet?

Winter Wish List: George at ASDA

7 comments

1. Hooded Fleece Onesie - £16
 2. Grey Mule Slippers - £6
3. Penguin Socks - £5 
4. Cosimax Hot Water Bottle - £5

It's getting to that time of year again where it's colder and the nights are drawing in. When it's like this I love nothing more than watching a movie snuggled on the sofa in my onesie with a hot chocolate, it makes a perfect cosy night in. George at ASDA have some great onesies in at the moment that I have been lusting after so I have made a winter wish list of items to keep me cosy and warm in the cold months ahead. Not only have they got some really lovely products in at the moment, the value of these are amazing as all of their products are super affordable!

In particular I have fallen in love with this baby pink fluffy onesie which has cute little ears on the hood and would be super snuggly. Onesies are so comforting on cold nights and I love to zip myself up in one when it's a little chilly.  I'd pair it with these mule slippers which are soft and fluffy on the inside which would keep your toes warm. I thought the grey pair would go perfectly with the pink onesie but they come in lots of different colours. Now onto something that is a winter essential for me, cute cosy socks! I thought these penguin socks were adorable and I always purchase new warm socks to wear in the winter every year. The last item on my wish list is this hot water bottle, the red nordic design gives it a very christmassy feel and I actually don't own one of these anymore. I used to love snuggling on the sofa with a hot water bottle and taking it to bed to with me to keep me warm and cosy, I definitely need to get this as I've missed having one!

You can view the full range of onesies here which will prepare you for the cold weather that has just started to arrive!
