The Resemblance is Uncanny

The Resemblance is Uncanny

Makeup Revolution is a new cosmetics brand in the UK and since its launch; the eye palettes that have really caught people’s attention are the iconic palettes that are the perfect dupes of the Urban Decay Naked palettes.

It’s not hard to see the solid resemblance between them but there is one distinct difference between them; while the Naked palettes can go for about £37, the iconic palettes go for a staggering £4, and they have just about the same quality in pigmentation and staying power.

If you live in the UK and you’ve wanted to get your hands on all or any of the Naked palettes, but couldn’t because of the steep price, then I’d recommend that you look into these dupe palettes.

Here’s a post comparing swatches from the Naked 3 palette and the Iconic 3 palette.

The links to each Iconic palette is down below:

Would you buy any of the iconic palettes?

Bye everyone and I’ll talk to you in the next post!

My Spring Beauty Wishlist

My Spring Beauty Wishlist
Hello everyone, how have you all been? It’s almost Spring and I know that some of you are way ahead on stocking up for your Spring essentials – unlike me. But here’s the list of things that I’d like to add to my Spring collection.
When I think of Spring makeup I think about fresh faced looks – simple and sweet with a splash of colour.
The NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Trinidad
First up is this sheer foundation from NARS in the shade Trinidad. It helps to keep skin hydrated and gives and glowing and natural finish. This is ideal for me because I don’t usually like to wear full coverage foundation, but on days that I’d like to this foundation also offers buildable coverage.

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 70

You have to remember your sun block! And I like this one because not only does it protect against the sun’s rays but it also hydrates as well – I’m a sucker for moisturising! It’s sweat and water resistant and good both your face and body. It only works for 80 minutes though, so you’d have to bring it along for touch ups.

6-Piece Geometric Eyeshadow Palette

I love E.L.F and their affordable, quality products. I’m not sure if I mentioned this before but I really like nude eyeshadows and tend to use them the most. This 6 piece eyeshadow palette from E.L.F is packed with them and only costs $3! Another plus for me is that they’re shimmery as well. It’d be perfect for me for Spring.

Real Techniques Blush Brush

I’m absolutely in love with my Real Techniques brushes. They’re are such good quality and efficient and I’d think that this blush brush would be no different. This brush would be great for applying some blush to my cheekbones.

Sigma | E32 – Exact Blend

I love a good blended eyeshadow and this E32 exact blend brush from Sigma seems a good brush for the job. I heard a lot of good things about Sigma and I’ve been wanting to try some of their brushes for a while.

Spring Capsule Collection by Rita Ora for Rimmel London

I love these lip colours for Spring in Rimmel’s new  Spring Capsule Collection which they collaborated on with Rita Ora. They’re lip crayons giving a smooth application. Can’t wait!

So I know that the radio silence has been . . . a bit much, but with final exams coming up I do have quite a lot of things to do and so my posting wont be too regular for the next couple of months, but that does not meant that I will stop blogging completely. I’ll continue to try and blog as much as I can. I hope you all understand.

Bye everyone! I’ll talk to you in the next post!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS | Real Techniques: Core Collection and Starter Kit

Good day all, it sure has been awhile. To get back into the swing of things I’ll start off the week with a post. Here we go:

If you follow me on twitter then you’d know that last Thursday I finally got my Real Techniques starter set and core collection. I was so excited! I was tempted to just tear the packages open but I remembered that I had to take some pictures first, and here they are:

RTCC(VRO)P1010481(VRO)

My first thought when I saw this was ‘Huh, I thought they’d be bigger’, but they are a good size. I know that most of you have probably read multiple reviews of these same brushes till you just couldn’t do it any more but . . . bare with me.

These are the first high quality brushes that I’ve been able to get my hands on. Here in Nevis the makeup brushes you’d see in stores would make a pro makeup artist scream bloody murder. I’m not lying, they’re crap! And after starting this blog I’m still at a point where I’m building my makeup empire, I wanted it to not be infested with mediocre brushes, and I didn’t have any other brushes – other than the ones seen here in a previous post and a few others. So I took to the internet to find some high quality brushes at an affordable price.

After searching through Sephora’s nice sets and Sigma’s $400 sets, I was like ‘Wait. What about Real Techniques?’ and I browsed through the site and realised that at Real Techniques I could get more brushes for less and the brushes are also world renowned quality. So, after realising this and saying goodbye to some cash – I can be really cheap sometimes, 😀 – I ordered the brushes, had them sent to my uncles house in the States and then he sent them here. Although they took ages to get to me – thank you uncle – it was definitely worth the wait.

The brushes are just so soft, unlike those scratchy brushes I had before. The two sets together cost $36 USD but in my currency – Eastern Caribbean Dollars – it cost $97.56 XCD plus shipping which added up to $113.68 XCD.

Well worth the money none the less and now I’ll never even have to look at the brushes that I see in stores here again! I’ll continue my makeup collection building, and most likely add some more brushes to it sometime in the future.

I can already see a difference in the way my makeup is applied with these brushes. Thank you Real Techniques!

Bye everyone, I’m off to go get ready for a class I have in an hour.
