Make-Up Revolution Ultimate Colour Chaos Palette

makeup revolution, urban decay, electric, eyeshadow

When it comes to eyeshadow palettes I am strictly a neautrals girl, but with the new year and Spring/Summer approaching I want to be more confident and play around with some brighter shades.
Inspired by some of my favourite Urban Decay make-up artists with colour I wanted a palette that was bright and bold, but with the UD electric palette being £40 I wasn't sure if I wanted to commit to it just yet I bought this dupe from Makeup Revolution.

So far I am loving the brighter shades and trying to make them wearable enough for everyday. The mix of matte and shimmer shades compliment eachother so well and I've been loving mixing up a brown/black smokey eye with a little bit of colour. If I'm lucky enough to go away anywhere this summer I will definateley be taking this palette with me as the neon pinks and greens will look lovely with a bit of a tan! 
So far I'm really impressed with the pigment and staying power of these shadows and will definateley be having a look at other Makeup Revolution products in the future :)

Clarins Hydra Matte Rebalancing Lotion Review

clarins, ultra matte, lotion, review, skincare

Been a while since I last had time to put up a post. This one is going to be again about one of my favourite current skincare brands Clarins. After getting into my new skincare routine with my Clarins products in my previous post a moisturiser was missing! I have extreme combination skin and was on the hunt for a moisturiser to help with that.
After asking my friend for her advice she recommended me this product to try and so far I love it.
Rather than being a full on greasy moisturiser it's a light lotion which glides on the skin and is perfect for oilier complexions. It settles in quickly allowing you to apply your makeup on top quickly which is good if you're in a rush in the mornings! I also like that it's ultra-matte meaning it won't make you shiny by midday and almost acts as an alternative to a primer.
The only bad thing I'd say is that it does come out of the bottle extremely quickly so you have to be aware of that but it smells gorgeous and I'm looking forward to seeing some results in a few weeks!
I was kindly given this salon size version by my friend but you can also purchase from Clarins counters for £26 it comes in versions for every skin type :)
