BEAUTY BIRTHDAY PRESENTS | REVIEW


























Recently I mentioned receiving those beauty bits for my birthday. And today it's time to review them.

We are going to start with Makeup Revolution. I got a Ultra Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice. I just checked this product on their official website and it costs 6 pounds. You get 2 contour shades, 4 blushes and 2 highlighters. Also there is a huge mirror in the palette, so in my opinion the palette is in general a good product to travel with.

Now about the quality. Each powder is pigmented. Especially the highlighters, but this, I'm not super keen on. When it comes to blushes, they are pigmented, but in a decent amount. You can build it up by using more product. But unfortunetely, because the pigmentation is quite big, I feel like, when you'll use to much of it, you might look like a clown.
If we talk about the contour shades. Some may not like them, but in my opinion they are very good for those who want to define their cheek bones, but just a little. You may achieve a heavy contour, but it'll take time. 
Because I don't feel like I have mastered the highlighting step yet, as for today, I'm a bit scared of the highlighters. They are very pigmented. So whenever I want to use one, I try to use it light handed. But overall, when you use it with a light hand, you get a nice effect.

For the price as low as this, I totally recommend this palette. I haven't yet had chance to wear them for a whole day, but from Kate's review, I read that the powders lasted for a really long time.

Next up is the Victoria's Secret Fragrance Mist in Pure Daydream. I have a few other mists from Victoria's Secret, but honestly this is by far my favourite one. The smell is so amazing! When it comes to what it actually smells of, it's very fruity. And because I'm a huge fruity fragrance lover, I can't get enough of it. As the packaging suggests, it smells of orchid and pink currant. Although one thing is a con for me. It's longevity. Because it's a mist, it doesn't stay on your skin all day, but I'm fine with it, because I absolutely adore the scent.


And that is it. Those are the beauty things I got for my birthday.
Speak to you soon,
