Makeup Revolution Haul #2 + First Impressions

Hi lovelies!

I bought a few lovely bits from Makeup Revolution a while ago (you can see my first haul here) and I was just so impressed with the quality of the products. So obviously, I bought more!

Stay don't Stray - Eye Primer

As I suffer from oily skin, I usually get that annoying horrible crease line across my eyelid. Come on, you must know what I'm talking about here!? This primer fixes that! No matter how long I like to keep my eyeshadow on throughout the day/night that crease line doesn't appear, ever!

It also makes the shadows look much more vibrant. Plus, it was only £1.50 - how affordable for something amazing!

Pro Fix Oil Control - Makeup Fixing Spray

I first heard good reviews about the normal fixing spray from other beauty bloggers, so I had been thinking about getting it for a while. While I was on Makeup Revolutions website, I decided to get the 'new oil fixing spray' instead of the normal one. Mainly because it was new and secondly because it is meant to control oily skin.

This sets your makeup for hours straight. Although, I'm not too sure about the 'oil fix' as my skin still gets oily throughout the day. (I must just have incredibly oily skin.)
So to be honest, I might as well have just bought the normal setting spray. It was only £5, so I'm not too bothered.

Hot Smoked - Eyeshadow Palette

I wanted a simple palette with a few eyeshadows in and I came across this one! The eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented! This has 12 eyeshadows - 5 matte and 7 shimmer. It also comes with a dual ended applicator, which I don't use anyway. The shadows are incredibly pigmented and believe it or not, it was only £4!

Each shade doesn't have individual names, which is aggravating as I like it when each eyeshadow have names, it's just easier for me.

Eyes Like Angels - 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette

 I had to spend so much to get this palette for free. I didn't actually realise until I looked in my basket when I was about to checkout. This palette has 32 shadows. Most are shimmer with a few mattes. There's a mix of bright colours and smoked colours. I absolutely love this palette, such amazing pigmentation! It's only £8!

I actually did a makeup look using this palette which you can find here.

Golden Sugar - Ultra Blush & Contour Palette

As I'm pale, I find it quite hard to get the right colour blush to suit me. So, I thought that I'd take a look on the Makeup Revolution site and I found this! This is both a blush and contour palette - which is handy! So I thought why the hell not!? All these shades are very pigmented and very shimmery.

Shade 1- This is personally too shimmery and glittery for me. I couldn't really use this as a highlighter.

Shade 2- As I'm quite pale anyway, this is just too light. It just doesn't suit me.

Shade 3- This could be one of my favourite shades in the palette. Somehow, I don't find it as shimmery as the rest of the shades but it suits me best.

Shade 4- This is a very bronze/orange colour. It doesn't suit me at all. It's way too dark.

Shade 5- It's not too dark or too light. Can't really see the colour, just the shimmer. Another one of my favourites maybe?

Shade 6- Again, a very shimmery shade. I can't really use very much of this as I'll look like I'll have very dark cheeks. It may look better if I had a tan though. I really do like this one.

Shade 7- This reminds me of Autumn. It's obviously way too dark for me and too intense. A big no no on this one!

Shade 8- Many people contour with this shade, which I have done myself a few times. It does look okay once blended, so it's not so harsh. Yet again, it is quite an orangey colour. I can get away with it though.
