Today I am talking about a new favourite of mine. Profusion Cosmetics just recently landed in the UK and I was so excited to get a few of their palettes to try out. One of the palettes I am talking about today is the Eye & Cheek Artistry Palette (£12.50).
First, lets talk about the price. £12.50 for this fantastic palette is just amazing. I know it's hard sometimes paying for something that is really pricey and it never turns out the way you want it too. But, I would pay more for this palette. It is great to take on travels with you as you wouldn't need to put different palettes in your bag full of eyeshadows, bronzers, highlighters etc
This palette consist of 12 eyeshadows, 4 blushes and 2 highlighters and, it also comes with a duel ended brush. The brush is so soft and really easy to use and it blends out the shades really nicely. One side is great for blending whilst the other side is great for packing on colour and the right size to get the inner part of your eye if you're looking to do a spotlight look.
I have been playing with this palette all week and I can honestly say it is now one of my favourites. The highlighters are gorgeous and just make my skin glow. They apply nicely and hardly any fall out. I really like the different blushes as I don't have that many anyway but, there is a shade for different looks from a bright spring look to a grungy autumn look.
I adore the eyeshadows. You can use them any way but, they all go perfectly together. They shade range is nice and the pigment is so good! You only need to dip in your brush a little and it will pick up a lot. They are easy to blend and I just can't wait to create some more eye looks with them.
The palette is filled with mattes, satin and shimmers. It is such a nice mix and again, perfect if you are on the go. As the colours go nicely with each other, blend well, and just really nice and pigmented. I can see Profusion taking the UK by storm. The palettes are so affordable and I would just pay more than double for these. Some pricey palettes don't even have this pigmentation. Keep an eye out on their social media for when this palette is out and don't forget to check out their website for all their other products. They have such an array of make up products that, I am ready to buy them all.
*I was sent these products in an exchange for a review-all opinions are my own
Today I am talking about what is in my make up bag. This is my everyday make up bag, the make up that I like to put on before work. I love reading post like these and seeing all the different products people use!
What is in your make up bag?
These are everyday staples for me. The products I know that will make my skin look good and I haven't had any problems with these products.
- Soap & Glory Speed Plump - £13 - I always use this before I apply my make up. I just adore it. It makes my make up stay on for ages and it also makes my skin feel amazing.
- L'Oreal Infallible Foundation shade 15 - £10.99 - I have used a lot of foundations but, this is my all time favourite. It makes my skin look flawless. It applies nicely to the skin, it doesn't look cakey and it gives me the coverage I need.
- Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer C1 - £4 - Ever since this came out I have been loving it. It is the perfect shade for me and it covers up my dark circles and blemishes really well! I really need to stock up on this.
- Makeup Revolution Ultra Cream Contour Kit - £3.50 - I use the contour shade in this to cream contour before I set it with powder. It blends so nicely and the perfect shade for my skin.
- Vichy Dermablend Make-up Translucent Setting Powder - £18 - I always have a love hate relationship with powders. I've had some that don't mix well with my concealer and makes it look orange but, this is the best powder I have ever used. It sits nicely on the skin and there is no flashback on photos. If you're going to invest in a good setting powder I can't recommend this one enough.
- Makeup Revolution Bronze, Shimmer, Highlighter - £4 - I like to mix the dark and middle shade together and go over the cream contour with it. It bronzes up my face nicely. It doesn't look cakey or orange and I just adore it.
- Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Highlighter - £5 - I have a few of these and I tend to put a different one in my bag each week. The colours are gorgeous and the glow is unreal.
- Benefit Brow Zing - £26.50 - I tend to use a lot of different of Benefit brow products but, lately I have been using this. I just adore the colours and I really like the way it makes my eyebrows look.
- Rimmel Brow This Way clear gel - £4.49 - So great to use to keep my eyebrows in place!
- Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner Pen - £6.50 - Usually, when I am just doing an everyday makeup look I just do a wing eyeliner. I just love the way it looks and this eyeliner is my favourite. It is very pigmented and goes on nicely.
- Soap & Glory Thick and Fast HD Mascara - £10.50 - My favourite mascara. Makes my eyelashes look longer and thicker. So easy to apply.
So, a mix of high ends and drugstores. These are my favourite products of all time so, what do you have in your make up bag?

We all love highlighters. I just love trying different ones and trying different colours!
So, here is a list of some of my favourite highlighters at the moment. It was hard to just pick a few but, these are the ones I've been reaching for the most the past few months.
Lottie London Mermaid Glow (£5.95) - Everyone needs a rainbow highlighter in their life. You can use any different colour or, just mix your brush into it and it gives of a really nice glow to the face.
Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss (£5) - I just adore these. They are such a nice size and the glow is unreal. For £5 you really can't go wrong with it. If you're looking for a highlighter with an amazing glow then, I can't recommend them enough!
Barry M Cosmic Lights (£7.99) - These colours though! I really love this palette. It's such a nice size. You get a mix of cream and powder highlighters. You can apply the cream and for an extra glow put on the powder.
ABH Moon Child (£41) - I got this in the sale as I have been wanting it forever. I have seen everyone rave about this palette and I just had to see what it was like. It is filled with so many different colours and I love trying them all out to give my look that extra pop.
What are some of your favourite highlighters?
I'm probably the last person to try the Sweet Peach palette from Too Faced.
I've had my eyes on it for awhile and my boyfriend got me it for Christmas. My friend raves about this palette and I just had to see what it was like and give it a go.
I've only ever used their liquid lipsticks so, I was happy to try something different!
The smell is just so beautiful. I could sniff this palette all day. It's not too overpowering and if every palette can have a food smell that would be great.
I really love the colours in this palette. There is enough to make a natural looking eye look and then, colours to do a very fun look with a bit of sparkle. I've used this a few times in the past few weeks and I just love it. The pigmentation is really good. You only really need a few taps and your brush is covered. It blends really nicely on the lid and hardly any fall out. I can't stop using this palette. I love trying new looks with it and I just can't believe it's taken me this long to try it out!
I can't wait to try some more of Too Faced products. Especially the Hangover primer and their new collection out this year, Peaches & Cream, it looks amazing and those bronzers though!
What are your favourite Too Faced products?
Today, I want to talk about one of my new favourite products. I recently got the Liquid highlighters from Makeup Revolution. I got the shades Starlight and Elixir. I've been dying to try liquid highlighter drops for so long and I just had to pick them up.
They are so easy to use and the colours are gorgeous. They are quite thick, which I like because they aren't runny. I have tried them a few times and I've used them over foundation and then some times under foundation to give my skin a really nice glow.
So, if you're looking to try some liquid highlighter drops I can't recommend these enough! They are only £6 and the perfect item to keep in your make up bag. I can't wait to get more of these, especially the new ones they brought out Dragon's Blood and Mermaid's Scales!
What are you favourite MUR products? I can't wait to finally pick up the Pro HD Palette Glow Getter (£15) it just looks so beautiful.
If you saw my last haul you would have seen I got some new Make up Revolution products and I decided to test them out. I also picked up their new concealer that everyone is raving about and decided to try that out as well.
I decided to use my Soph eyeshadow palette (£10). I've used this a few times and I just adore it. It has so many different colours for me to use and play with. They are really easy to blend and build up plus, the metallic's are really pigmented and gorgeous. I then tried out the concealer. I got the lightest shade C1 (£4). Finally, a concealer that is light enough for me and not yellow. It is so creamy and honestly, so amazing. For £4 you really can't go wrong with it. It covered up my under eyes and some blemishes. I am just in love with it.
I then tried the Ultra Cream Contour Kit (£3.50) I hardly use cream contour kits but, I thought I have to try this out. The contour shade is so creamy and really easy to blend out. It blended out so smoothly and I was amazed. It is also a great size to put in my make up and a great shade for my skin tone. Next, I tried Bronze, Shimmer, Highlighter(£4) I mixed the middle and darkest shade together to bronze up my face and to me, I thought it looked good. It didn't look orange as I know sometimes bronzers can look orange on the skin. It applied nicely and easy to blend.
For the highlighter I decided to apply the Liquid Highlighter in the colour Starlight (£6) first. The liquid highlighter is amazing. So beautiful and has such a nice feel and beautiful shine to it. Obviously, I couldn't stop their with the highlighter. I had to try out the Soph Highlighter Palette(£8). I used the lightest shade in the palette on top of the liquid one and THE GLOW IS UNREAL. The pigment is unreal and I am glowing.
To finish it of I used the Retro Luxe Matte Lip in the shade Reign (£6). It is such a beautiful pink/nude colour. The pencil was really creamy and the liquid lipstick applied really nicely on top of it. It doesn't feel sticky, and it dried down quite quick.
Overall I am in love with these products. I really enjoyed trying them out and just falling in love with them and adding them to my every day make up bag -
Here is the finished look.
Today I am talking about the Complexionista palette from Benefit.
I got this for Christmas as I really liked the look of it and I've been using it over the past month since then.
This palette consist of 6 products. Boi-ing concealer in the shades 1 & 2. Hoola matte powder bronzer. Hoola Lite light powder bronzer. Dandelion Twinkle highlighter and Watt's Up! Soft focus highlighter. It also has a mirror on the inside so for £26.50 you really can't go wrong with the price on this.
This has became one of my new favourite palettes to have in my make up bag. It is the perfect size and so compact that I can take with me when I go travelling and it has everything I need in it. I adore the Boi-Ing concealer. I haven't used it in awhile and after getting this I remembered how much I loved it and the coverage it gave me when I cover up blemish etc. I can't really use shade 2 as it's not for my skin tone but, at the the moment I've been using it as a cream contour as it is just so soft. I adore Hoola Lite and the original Hoola. They always give me that kind of 'I've just spent a week on a beach in Hawaii' kind of look. It is a really nice bronzer. The highlighters are GORGEOUS! Dandelion Twinkle is so pigmented and so blinding. It is one that you don't need much product on your brush for but, you can build it up to blind everyone with. I like to apply Watt's Up! Before it and then add that on top to give me that glow. Watt's Up! Is a beautiful subtle highlighter. It is a cream highlighter and just so gorgeous.
I just adore this palette and I can't recommend it enough. If you've never tried Benefit products before I recommend getting this as it has some of the best products they've ever released in it!
So, the other day was payday and of course I had to treat myself to some new make up!
I adore Makeup Revolution. They are one of my favourite drugstore brands and their make up is always affordable and really good. Plus, Superdrug had an offer on where if you spent £25 you got a MUR goody bag so, how was I meant to pass that offer up!
The products I bought where the Soph Highlighter Palette (£8). This has been on my wishlist for so long. I adore Sophdoesnails and her eyeshadow palette is one of my favourites and I am excited to cover my face in this palette. I have been wanting to try their Liquid highlighters for awhile so, I decided to get Starlight and Elixir (£6). The colours are gorgeous and I've swatched them on my hand the glow is unreal. And, another thing I haven't tried before is the Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit and I got the shade Reign (£6). It's a beautiful nude/pink colour and it is going to be perfect for Spring!
Can you believe this goody bag? The contents are amazing! They really did spoil us with this offer. In the goody bag I got the Skin Kiss Golden Kiss highlighter (£5) The colour is absolutely beautiful. Next is a Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit in the shade Royal (£6). It is my perfect shade of purple and I am so excited to try it out. There was another highlighter but, this time it was a trio! The Strobe Lighting Palette (£8) is gorgeous! The shades are beautiful. Next was the Ultra Cream Contour Kit (£3.50) I never really use a cream contour but, they feel so creamy and the shades look really good for my skin tone so I am excited to try! Next is the Bronze, Shimmer, Highlighter (£4) Three of my favourite things in one compact! And last, is the Redemption Palette(£4). It is a really lovely palette to have in your collection. I can't wait to play with it!
Let me know what your favourite MUR products are! I can't wait to try these products out and I will have a post up this week with swatches and my thoughts of these products!
If you're like me than, trying to find a great mascara and eyeliner is some times hard. I have tiny eyelashes and some mascaras just don't give them the love they deserve and then, we have eyeliners. Some are amazing and then some aren't pigmented enough, have the perfect tip to do that winged eyeliner or some just smudge.
I've been trying out a new combo lately and I just love it.
Supercat Skinny eyeliner and Thick & Fast HD Mascara from Soap&Glory. I am in love with these products. I've been trying them out for the past few weeks and now they are my holy grail.
I really adore the eyeliner. I can really achieve the perfect wing look. I can't do a look without doing a wing and it's so easy to do it with the Supercat Skinny. It is very precise and I just adore using it. The Mascara really helps my lashes. I don't wear a lot of fake lashes since I wear glasses most of the time but, my eyelashes are tiny and this really makes them look longer and I just love using it.
What is your favourite eyeliner and mascara combo? This is my new fave and I don't see it changing any time soon.
What other beauty products do you love from Soap&Glory? I'm hoping to do a post soon on trying a full face of make up from them as I've only ever used a few products! Tell me your faves below!
