Happy Halloween! Dark mermaid halloween makeup.


Hey there! Happy Halloween! so once i knew i wanted to do a Halloween makeup look for Halloween the hunt was on to figure out what kind of look i wanted to do! i reached out and asked on instagram, twitter and facebook and i had the suggestion dark mermaid come back. I really like this idea so off i went! i actually ended up doing this look twice, i did it on Saturday but i really wasn’t happy with how the look or the pictures turned out so i tried again on Monday and im much happier with this one!

I hope you like this too, happy Halloween!

Eyes –

Revolution brow tint in dark – go to brow product.

Bourjois 24HR eyeshadow primer.

Imagic flash palette using black – as an eyeshadow base.

Revolution single eyeshadow in touch me – to set my primer and base.

Revolution Pro regeneration trends mischief mattes using poison and shrine – i used poison as my first crease colour, and then shrine was more directly in my crease.

Sleek divine ultra mattes V1 brights palette using sugarlite and dragonfly – i found the colours getting muddy so i used these to brighten the colours up.

Revolution eyes like angels eyeshadow palette using aqua dream – as my lid colour.
Maybelline master ink matte liquid eyeliner in charcoal black – i did a heavy wing, i didnt plan too! but i did.

maybelline total temptation mascara in black – even when i wear lashes, i still pile it on!

Eyelashes from ebay.

Face –

Obsession whitener drops, max factor facefinity foundation in light ivory, freedom ghost whitener, revolution liquid highlighter unicorn elixir, revolution haunted liquid highlighter in envy and imagic flash palette the blue – ok, so my “foundation” was a right old mix! i basically kept mixing until i got what i wanted, in the end for some reason in some pictures i look much bluer than others! it gets the effect across though, and that was all over my face, neck and chest.

Elf HD setting powder – to set everything!

Revolution Pro regeneration trends mischief mattes using poison and shrine – i used a stencil i got from a mermaid kit from tescos, but fishnet tights work well too! and then i basically just went all around my face and picked random spots on my chest, i also shaded/contoured my chest a bit, and blended the scales in so they didn’t look so placed.

Revolution ultra cool glow highlighter palette using the green – i sprayed my brush with a setting spray before i picked up the powder and then i went wild! pretty much all over my chest, cheekbones, nose, chin, cupids bow, under the brow, inner corners, everywhere!

Iridescent cosmetic white/green glitter – i then grabbed this super pretty glitter and pretty much did the same that i did with the highlighter! minus cupids bow and eyes.

Lips –
MUA luxe velvet lip lacquer in splash – all over the lips.

Revolution haunted liquid highlighter in envy – i patted this in the centre of my lips then blended outwards.

Iridescent cosmetic white/green glitter – i then basically did the same with the glitter too.

I am so happy i re did this! because i like this version so much more than i liked my first one, it really proves that sometimes its worth trying again!

I hope you enjoy, and have a happy and safe Halloween!

Bramble wax wax melt haul.


Hey there! so a little while back i wrote about my wax melt obsession and my favourite brand bramble wax (you can read all about that here) and i showed you a haul of wax melts! well since then i have a erm…sizeable haul from them! the fortnightly menus they they do on there facebook page havent overly appealed to me lately (the themes yes the scents sadly not!) so i thought i was going to have a rather small open box to show you! an open box by the way is a service they offer, in which you can open an open box, and then over the next month anything you buy with them goes into that box, combining postage which is nice! but then just before mine closed it was the owners birthday so she had a massive birthday sale….i did damage!

Ill mark which wax melts i got in the sale but its fair to say i dont need any for a while! my box in which i keep all my wax melts is now too small (my collection is obviously not too big). Unsurprisingly my large haul meant i levelled up! bramble wax have a rewards system based on a gaming level up system and now in my next order i can get a free bag of bramble snaps, which is awesome! just hopefully in a scent i like! i did also get a free gift in this order, a wax melt, though im not sure how i feel about the smell yet!

I have got to say, one of my favourite things about bramble wax is how active they are in talking to there customers and keeping them informed. I really like how personal buying from them feels and it has made me want to start buying from smaller local brands more often!

anyway, im gonna list all the wax i got starting from top left, here we go!

Hundred acre honey shot pot x4 (sale).
Rainbow splash shot pot x2 (sale).
Chosen by the sea sample.
Time of my life shot pot x2 (sale).
rapsicle x2 (sale).
leeloo (sale).
headmaster’s office (sale).
grans pecan pie sample.
sun song (fortnightly menu).
hoist the black flag (sale).
glass slipper (sale).
companion (sale).
lickipops (sale).
spice (free gift).
who you gonna call? (fornightly menu).
halliwell charm (fortnightly menu).
Vita ex morte (fortnightly menu).
Salem (fortnightly menu).

As i said above, i dont need any for a while! but of course the next menu that im interested in will ruin that one! what i do need however is a bigger box….

The Therapy Diaries – Making steps.


Hey there! so i had therapy on Thursday, though i went one better this Thursday as it was half term over here in the UK so my mum was off work. So after therapy we went to poundland too! doing more than one thing when i go out i find very tough, and going around a shop is still really difficult for me but im getting there and i did well with poundland.

Anyways, in therapy itself! i brought up a bit of an issue ive been having, i mentioned a little while ago about my issue with randomly falling asleep without warning and that i was going to go see a different doctor. Well….i haven’t made an appointment yet. Im scared, scared that i go to see this doctor and i get the same reaction my own GP gave me, scared that im never gonna be taken seriously purely because im fat.

I explained this to my therapist and basically it wasn’t so much that i needed her to say anything it was more i think airing out what was in my head. We moved on from that, but i will come back to it at the end!

my “homework” had been to read this piece of text called the poisoned parrot, the parrot being low self-esteem. It really does hit home and make a lot of sense! so we spoke about that a little bit before we looked at what i had done with my goals, she wanted me to break them down a bit more so i did, i basically squished two goals into one because they are intertwined.

I put my goal “get out more often” and “become more independent” together because for the most part i am pretty independent, the big problem comes with getting out and being out so ive got short term goals now like “go to a different shop from mum” and things like that. As for the getting out more often, i broke that down into two goals, which is to start seeing my nan on Fridays, and to work towards going out on Mondays too.

The other goal i worked on was become less scared of change, so i put “do things that scare me”, but then i wasn’t able to put anything else because i obviously dont think about what scares me! and we ran out of time to work on that sadly.

For the last bit of therapy we started mapping, which i do remember from my cbt before. Basically its working on the fact that a lot of our behaviours are learnt, because when we are born we are basically a blank canvas, and a lot of our behaviours good and bad are learnt in the younger years when you take things on so much easier. It doesn’t have to be a traumatic experience or anything like that, but just a small thing that you manage to pick up on can be enough, and it can turn into something you turn into something you have to do as you grow up. But its breaking these things down and figuring out whats caused your problems!

With that, my “home work” this week is too do 2 small goals, so one is to get it set to start seeing my nan on Fridays, and second is to phone the doctors! and finally make that appointment i really need.

This week felt like a week of progress, a week were it was time to start making sure that i actually moved forward not just talked about it! I have been feeling good lately, just wish me luck in staying that way.

Pink parcel october 2018.

Hey there! Today i have Octobers pink parcel to show you, if you dont know what pink parcel is it is a monthly subscription service based on your period. With every box that you can tailor to arrive based on your cycle, you get three lots of either pads or tampons depending on what you personally choose, one for later, one for now and for night. You also get a little box of treats too!

Ive gotten pink parcel for well over a year now and its very good, i no longer worry about running out of pads or not having enough and the little box of goodies is a really nice treat to know is coming. The only thing that continues to bug me about pink parcel is that throughout the month there adverts will show one or two products from that month, so staying completely unspoiled isnt easy!

Anyway shall we have a look in this months box? this months theme is barefaced beauty, i will say theres no full sized products this month apart from the brush egg which is disappointing, specially considering it was late this month too, however they did message and say it would be, they owned up to it so im glad about that!


First off lets get the tea/coffee out of the way, this months tea is the Immunitea orange and blueberry £3.69 (for 15 bags, we get one). As ive said before, not a hot drinks person so this will go to someone else!

You always get a sweet/chocolate in the box, this month we got 2 squares of chocolate, one salted caramel one orange, ive oppsed and have no idea what the brand is! but to be honest, it wasnt the best so its not a massive lose.

First product are bandzee £6.95, hair ties that are meant to be much kinder and softer to your hair. These are very often included in pink parcels and im honestly just not a fan, they dont hold up your hair very well and stretch very quickly. This months are in a “fawn” print and are very not me!

Next up is the organic pharmacy rose facial cleansing gel £49.00 (for 100ml, we get 20ml) now organic pharmacy is known to be very pricey! but boy £50 for a face wash basically? i havent tried this yet, it has aloe vera, rosehip, rose and bilberry, im a big fan of rosehip so we shall see! i think organic pharmacy have appeared before in the form of a lip balm, a while ago!

Next sample is from a brand we have seen before in pink parcel as well, mudmasky, i said it last time and i will say it again that good grief they cost the earth! this time we have a sample of the mudmasky morning boost mask £60.00 (60ml, we get 20ml) at least we got a better sized sample this time! this mask is meant to be a very quick morning boost, only something to be left on for a minute, its meant to be energising, lifting, feeding, hydrating and smoothing! it has coffee in it, meaning to be like a cup of coffee for your skin basically! im excited to try this to be honest, we are seeing these 1 minute morning masks appear more and more lately.

A brand ive never seen before next called whats in it for me..?, and we got there body cleanser £6.00 (250ml, we got 50ml), it says “aloe vera, witch hazel and grapefruit extract to cleanse, along with peppermint and rosemary oil to invigorate the skin and body”. I am getting slight anatomicals vibes from this brand, with there tag line being “totally selfish, indulgent in love with yourself products”, im curious to see more of there stuff to be honest as im curious!

The last thing we got was the Kawaii enterprise kawaii brush egg £6.99, you could get lilac, blue or pink and i got lilac. This is techinally the only full sized product we got, but its a brush egg! i wont be using mine because i already have one and i honestly dont like them, if im gonna use something like this im going to use a mat because its easier.

I have to be honest that im disappointed with this months box, not only was i already a bit spoiled about the contents, it was late, theres a number of brands we have seen before or many times, and everything minus the egg brush is a sample. Im looking forward to trying out the mask, but thats all really.

Its a shame! and i hope November is better.

Revolution conceal & define full coverage foundation.


Hey there! So, erm shiny things are really annoying to photograph aint they? because this was a bloody nightmare! but worth it, because this is the foundation everyone and there mother has been talking about lately, the Revolution conceal & define full coverage foundation £9.00. Revolution have been on fire, they are releasing new products every week at least! when they brought out this foundation to match there very popular concealer in the same range (that they brought out in supersize at the same time) it hit youtube and blogs in a wave.

I knew i wanted to try it, but decided i would wait until i wanted to make a revolution order to try it. Glad i did because there halloween range came out a few weeks later!

This foundation is meant to be a creamy, comfortable formula with a buildable coverage and sets to a demi-matte finish. It comes in 24 shades, its a pretty wide range but of course it could always be better! I got the palest shade, F0.5 which is fair with pink undertones.

I thought it would finally actually be pale enough for me, and it is pale enough for sure, but i actually think it might be slightly too pink! rare for me, because i am pink toned, but it does pull a tiny bit pink on me.

Considering the price, the packaging is really nice! a glass bottle with a giant doe foot applicator. I haven’t had a foundation with this kind of applicator before, i like it but i am scared every time i pull the wand out that its going to splatter everywhere!

First off this foundation is pretty high coverage! you dont need that much of it, and it covers any discolouration, dark circles and most spots in the first coat, i only needed to build it up slightly on very annoyed spots etc and it does build up very easily.

I would call the finish it gives more of a matte finish than a demi matte finish honestly. Even though i did set it, because i always test any foundation the way i would wear it, it really didnt need it when first applied at least.

I tested it out two slightly different ways on my combo/oily skin, first time i used the smashbox photo finish primer and then i dotted the foundation onto my face using the applicator and blended it out using a sponge (i used the real techiques sponge). It blends out very easily, sponge is for sure the way to go with this, it blends quickly and easily without any fuss really!

I then set everything using my elf setting powder, applied contour/blusher/highlighter as normal and left it be. i wore it for about 7 hours this day, i wasnt doing a whole lot, mainly sat at my pc, however it was put to the test with some kitchen dancing! at the 2 & 4 hour mark it still looked exactly as it had (minus my glasses marks). However by hour 7 my nose was rather oily and at least some of the foundation on my nose was gone for sure, the foundation around my mouth and nose had faded too and i was shine city! however for 7 hours, i have seen worse wear for sure, but it wasnt perfect.

Next time i tried it, i was very brave for me because if i have to go out normally i would always wear my estee lauder double wear. It honestly scares me to wear anything else! but i wore this foundation going to therapy last week. I started it off the same, smashbox photo finish primer but this time i used the soap & glory one heck of a blot primer on my nose, i then used the foundation applied in the exact same way as before. I did use concealer this time for under my eyes, the matching revolution conceal & define concealer mixed with a bit of the foundation and whitening drops as its a bit dark for me, that went on completely fine. Then i set everything with my elf setting powder, and applied my contour/blusher/highlighter as normal, however it was at this point i noticed my nose. It looked awful, very cakey and powdery, so i removed the foundation just from my nose alone, then reapplied the smashbox primer, foundation and powder and it was fine, so this foundation for me at least is one of those that needs a silicone based primer or its dry cakey city.

I was wearing this foundation for maybe 3 hours? but this time i was moving around, though not very much! just like, getting in the car, going up stairs etc. once home i tried on some dresses, and while this didnt make me sweat it did heat me up a bit! i looked in the mirror at this point and saw that the foundation had sort of oxidised? it was odd, but it was looking even pinker than it had before! my glasses situation was also really bad, now my glasses are in dire need of replacing so they dont really stay in one place anymore but pretty much were ever the glasses had touched even a little bit the foundation was gone, and there was a tiny bit of caking on my chin but nothing really noticeable.

In conclusion honestly this is a pretty good foundation! but its just not perfect, it may be my skin type or the way ive tried it that causes those issues who knows! and the issues i had really are not a big deal, if i still wore makeup everyday this really would be a perfect everyday foundation i think, but because i dont and i need a foundation that basically doesnt cause me anxiety its not quite there, very close however!

have you tried this? what did you think?

The Therapy Diaries – I wont give up.


Hey there! so first off, im sorry there wasn’t a therapy diaries last week, my mums car thought that just when i start getting out more would be the perfect moment to break down. So i wasn’t able to go to therapy annoyingly,thankfully all is sorted now!

Anyway, i went in today feeling a bit worried because i hadn’t done my “homework” the work she had set for me beforehand. And honestly that had been part avoidance and part just pure forgetfulness! im not forgetful normally but we all have those moments, and yes she did tell me off a little bit but i completely deserved that one!

Today we spoke about how i had felt the past couple of weeks, i explained how i had been pretty good but this past weekend i had struggled quite a bit.

See i suffer pretty heavily and quite often with loneliness, thing is that i have friends, but they are scattered all over the world and also due to my mental illnesses and such seeing anyone is tough.

The saying “you can feel like the loneliest person in the world in a room full of people” is very true. I love my friends, but i haven’t seen a friend in the flesh so to speak in 4 years. And us humans are at the base of it social creatures, we need social interaction we need that connection, and though i get some of that through voice and text online i dont get that connection that you only get when the person is in the same room. I miss it, i that feeling and i well i want it back.

We established that those moments, especially this past weekend sound more depression driven than anxiety. Which, im not overly surprised about, i have anxiety induced depression and have done for many years anyway.

We looked at the goals i need to make smart a bit, and that was the homework i didnt do. We worked at it a bit and then its again my homework, we worked on my goal of liking myself more and we have broke it down to treating myself more like i treat others in 3 months time. Well, at least being better at doing that!

The rest of the session (these sessions go so fast) we went through my pros of changing, cons of changing, pros of staying the same, cons of staying the same. The pros of course completely outweighed the cons, by a tonne, and the cons…there not worth it.

I really do feel like ive found my spark again lately, i dont feel quite as hopeless as i did. Right now as im writing this on Thursday night i feel, well better than i have in a while honestly.

Last week when i couldn’t go to therapy, i felt sad, i wanted to go. I even said to my mum, but i want to go. That alone is such a massive step, it shows that i have my fight back, and even though im scared etc im really determined that this time is it. This is the big difference i am going to make, and in the end ill get the life i want.

Because i really need to recover.

And, i want too.

Makeup picks for halloween.


Hey there! so halloween is very quickly coming up, and i have to say that i adore this time of year, though i doubt that is any kind of surprise really!

I havent been able to do halloween makeup looks for the best couple of years which is rather sad, but in the years that i have done it, i tend to stick to beauty makeup and not go too far down the SFX route even if i am doing SFX effects or looks.

I have of course used some, liquid latex, fake blood, scar wax mainly but i do try to stick to beauty makeup because not only is it easier for me its easier for everyone who may want to recreate the looks i do.

So with that being said, im going to show you some of my favourite makeup products for this time of year.

Face products.


Now i have to be honest, a big part of using your normal makeup for halloween is using products not in the way they are meant to be used. For example, cream eyeshadow as lipstick and stuff like that but to make these things easier to show you i have split it up into categories!

First up is what i would say is hands down the handiest product to have for halloween/costume makeup. And that would be a flash palette, the orginal one is from makeup forever however i have the imagic flash palette dupe £9.47 , its much cheaper and works extremely well! they are basically cream paints, but they set. They work really well as eyeshadow bases, but also are perfect for painting and pretty much anything else you need it for.

Something to have on hand is a contour palette, its up to you if you go cream or powder but having a large collection of skintone shades helps a lot when you are shading/highlighting. The one i have is the Revolution HD pro powder contour -fair £8.00, but theres plenty out there. Basically just something you can do the more realistic shading and highlighting with.

The little pots you can see in the picture are next, and that is colour correcting concealers, mine are the Freedom makeup london pro camouflage & correct £3.00 in lilac, green and yellow. Coloured concealers can be used as cream paints, ive used green colour correcters before for cream paints and they work really well! also they can be for there intended colour correcting underneath an extremely pale base for example.

Something that i have admittedly way too many of are coloured highlighters, the ones in the picture are MUA undress your skin highlighting powder £3.00. But there are many coloured highlighters out there these days and they are perfect for mermaid/unicorn/fairy etc looks, for once you cant go overboard!

This could be classed as a bit of a cheat, but i do highly suggest having a white foundation or a foundation that is much paler than you are. Obviously this can be used as a basis for so many looks, and colours can be mixed into it as well! I always try to have a white foundation to hand so that i can mix it into too dark foundations anyway, the one in this picture isnt actually sold anymore, but Revolution pro SFX white base £3.00 is basically the same just not freedom!

Lastly in this section, is eyelash glue! in my picture im showing the DUO lash glue in dark £5.99, but if you want an all rounder i would suggest going for a clear lash glue over dark! but basically eyelash glue is mainly latex, and can be used just like latex to make wounds and the like. Its pricier to use tubes of lash glue but if its what you have to hand it works! my first wounds i made were eyelash glue based and it works very well.

Eyes/lips.


As you can see there are two products i have already spoken about, the imagic flash palette and eyelash glue. These two really sit in the camp of being very flexible, so they deserved to be in both sections really!

So first up in this section is the Freedom makeup london pro lipstick palette in noir £10.00, Now they have a tonne of different shade ranges for this palette, but it will be no surprise to anyone that i have the noir! with so many colours in one place you should be able to mix any colour lipstick you need, and again these would work really well as a cream paint, the added sheen would work perfectly for blood and general wounds.

The other palette in the picture is the Revolution pro regeneration palette – trends mischief mattes £8.00. Ohh i love this palette, at the beginning of my blog you can see i just dont stop using it! its a brilliant palette, and brilliant for shading and all sorts of colours from bright to dark.

Finally, eyeliners! you could also put lip liners into this category too, but pencils are so useful for the colour they bring and the detail you can get with them. A personal favourite and the one in the picture is the NYX professional makeup slide on eye pencil £6.50.

So there you have my top makeup picks for halloween! have you got anything you would add to this? let me know!

Emotionally Broken – Being a introverted extrovert with anxiety.


Hey there! so yeah, thats quite a title isn’t it? well, its a topic i want to touch on because i think theirs quite a few stereotypes that go along with having anxiety. And i also think a lot of people seem to think that you are either a extrovert or an introvert, but in fact i am proof you can very much be both!
ido lean on the side of extrovert for sure, but not fully, hence the introverted extrovert.

For as long as i can remember, ive been a people person, i love talking to people i love interacting and just generally having fun with people. I am often at my happiest when im around people that i love, and i get lonely very easily. As a child/teen and honestly if it wasn’t for the crippling anxiety i still would now, i loved preforming, singing/acting, i loved being on stage and quite frankly like the attention too.

However, i also have never liked crowds, never been a fan of parties or clubbing. My ideal night is playing video games with friends. And as ive grown up, my love the limelight has faded quite a bit, however i dont know if thats a change in me or because of my anxiety.

I think a lot of people tend to mix up anxiety and shyness, because thats one thing ive never really been! im not a shy person, as i said i love people,all of my problems with interacting with people have come from anxiety. Im really not a shy person, just a very anxious person!

To be honest, i think a lot of my introverted habits come from anxiety, but some of them have also always been there. Having introverted habits honestly have more then anything added too my anxiety, making it easier for me to just hide away.

But then my extroverted side, makes anxiety so much harder to deal with. I want to see people, i want to talk to them, i want to interact have fun and do things together yet due to anxiety and agoraphobia i cant, and that, god that really sucks.

Though of course, that gives me something to fight for you know? i want to socialise, and so to be able to do that i need to recover.

I doubt im the only one whos a bit of both, because lets face it theres so many people on this planet theres no way everyone fits into group A or group B you know? and thats true for me, i am group C! and thats alright.

Its just adding in anxiety that makes everything that much harder to deal with (thats a life motto right there). A people person scared of people is a bit difficult! i was worse a few years ago, i hated people, i had been fucked over one too many times and the result of that was someone who just, given up.

I had tried so hard to get somewhere and failed, so i stopped trying. I was quite happy to just curl up and rot away, i was done. A that, i cant explain what its like to feel like that, i felt like the world had given up on me so i gave up on the world.

Thankfully, due to going through my first round of therapy and meeting friends online i managed to drag myself out of that. My extroverted side will never be happy until i can meet up with people, until i can have fun and be happy again. And my introverted side will never be happy until i can curl up and watch a film by myself without panicking because my thoughts are too loud.

Basically, i wont be happy until im recovered, extroverted or introverted, group A,B or C i wont be happy until im in a much better place.

Its a damn good thing im stubborn and strong willed then really isnt it.

Superdrug Halloween Haul.


Hey there! so first up, yes my picture is a bit different, i really want to up my photo game so i hope you enjoy! Anyway ive just finished 2 weeks were i told myself i couldnt buy anything i didnt need, and i did exactly that (well, ok almost). Anyway, that ended this tuesday and well….by 2am tuesday morning i had placed this order!

i knew that as soon as i could i would be getting some bits from the revolution halloween range, i tend to buy everything from the halloween range every year. I choose not to do that this year, the lipsticks while they looked pretty i had all the colours from revolution already, i already have there past 2 SFX palettes that i barely use and the lighter palette i just know i wont touch, so i was good! The only thing i want that i didnt pick up because it was out of stock was the liquid highlighter in blood of my enemies, because unsurprisingly a red highlighter had sold out fast!

I normally buy straight from the revolution website, but i needed nail polish remover and superdrug had a offer on revolution halloween makeup so i thought i might as well buy on superdrug! and im glad i did because it arrived very quickly. And of course, i couldnt resist picking up a few bits not from there halloween range i wanted to try.

So quickly get the boring stuff out of the way, i got the Artificial nail polish remover £2.49. I honestly didnt see its might to be for artificial nail removal i just wanted a remover! but actually this could work well because it should be pretty strong.

One of the other boring products i got was the Fruity orange & satsuma shower gel 99p, i tend to always buy an orange shower gel of some sort whenever i order online! this is a lovely one.

Finally for boring, i got the Barry m base coat, top coat and nail hardener 3 in 1 £2.99. I was really in need of a base coat/clear polish, as i wear clear polish all the time regardless, ive had this one before and its a very good one especially at its price point!

Alright, fun things! Revolution added too there skincare, and i knew that i couldnt pass up trying the Revolution skincare intense skin exfoliator 30% AHA + BHA peeling solution £7.99. This solution is an intense exfoliating treatment, i will get back to you on this once ive tried it, im slightly scared but excited!

Unsurprisingly i knew i had to try the Revolution conceal and define foundation F0.5 £9.00, i have tried and quite like the concealer, but what made me wanna try this apart from the fact that its revolution and i adore the brand, is that from the first reviews it looked very high coverage and had a super shade selection. I went for the palest pink toned one i could possibly go for, i think it should be a good match, expect a review coming up!

Revolution launched a new range of pigment pomades very quietly a few weeks ago and there was no way i couldnt try them! im always looking for cream eyeshadows that actually work well, those these pomades can be used for anything, eyes, eyebrows, lips etc you name it. I picked up the Revolution pro pigment pomade in jet black £5.00 because i would be so pleased if this pomade actually stands up to others! i may have finally found a dupe for my colour tattoo.

Onto the halloween goodness! theres no way i was saying no to the Revolution haunted liquid highlighters £5.00. I picked up the ones in lovers wrath and envy, though i hope to be able to find blood of my enemies to complete the set! but they are beautiful, brilliant skull bottles and they have a wonderful pinky/purple or green sheen to them, i need that red one!

Last but not least we have the Revolution beautiful darkness eyeshadow palette £6.00, ill be honest that originally i wasnt sure if i was going to get either of the palettes but im really glad i did. This palette is beautiful! and i really like the lay out of the palette and praise revolution the names are on the palette! review of course incoming.

So there you have it! everything i bought, have you picked up anything from the halloween range? let me know!
