Makeup Revolution | Unicorns Unite Lipstick Collection

If you put a mythical creature in your product name, chances are I’m going to buy it. When I saw that the Makeup Revolution Unicorns Unite Lipsticks had gone on offer (5 for £4) I felt the need to get the whole lot! In the past year I’ve definitely given lipstick more of a go and I’m glad I have because it can really transform a look.

I love Makeup Revolutions lipsticks because they’re great for people like me on a budget, who don’t wear them often enough or long enough to require decent staying power. At £1 each, I don’t really care if they come off after eating and drinking.

The colours are fantastic and made me feel really cool -they’re quite original. I would however recommend that you apply a base to your lip beforehand (foundation/concealer/powder) just to give them a bolder pop and increase their staying power.

I filmed a ‘try-on’ vlog with swatches if you want to see these lipsticks in action before you buy them.

I was dubious at first as I didn’t know if I had the confidence to pull off such different colours but I love them and I’ve worn them out multiple times!

 

Do you own any Makeup Revolution lipsticks?

What’s your favourite ‘magical’ make up look?

adventures: Christmas Family Fun Day

(I know this is a bit late but if you want to read why I didn’t post over the Christmas period, see here. For the vlog on this page, scroll to the bottom of the post.)

I am proud to be called an Auntie to three amazing children – Ofelia, Erin and Logan. Despite usually finding it difficult to bond with peoples’ kids, these three are very important to me and I try to dedicate as much time and energy into spending time with them and their parents as possible.

Just before Christmas, I planned a whole week of seeing my nieces and nephew because the magic that children see at that time of year is the best. Unfortunately, I got tonsilitis and wasn’t able to see Erin and Logan until recently but me, my sister-in-law Lisa and little Ofelia had a really fun and festive day just before I got ill so I thought I’d show you guys what we got up to!

First on the agenda was visiting a local garden centre because their Christmas displays are always gorgeous. We went to Haskins in Ferndown and Fee was instantly enamored with all the soft and sparkly seasonal stock.

There were some beautiful ornaments, some of which had moving parts that we really liked but it was important not to touch them!

The trip made me really wish we had our own place so that I could have got some nice decorations but this time next year, I’ll definitely be going back. After a quick bit of ‘ladies who lunch’ we went next door to Hobbycraft to get some gifts.

While baking the cookies, we opened Fee’s Peppa Pig advent calendar.

Then we made some Christmas cards using some of the bits we got from Hobbycraft. Lisa helped Ofelia to make cards for her grandparents and one for me and Uncle Josh (“Make sure Uncle Josh gets my card!” she said…)

We had lots of cuddles and playtime then snacked on our cookies – delicious! It was a really fun day overall and we did it all on a budget.

Below is my rather poorly cut together vlog from our day. It is best watched in 720pHD with the sound on.
Please bear with me as I still get to grips with the camera, the editing software and basically everything!

Did you do any fun activities for the holidays?
What children’s activities do you do on a budget?

Why I’ve Been Invisible On Social Media This Christmas – I went offline in order to spend the holidays with my loved ones…

tag: boyfriend does my makeup

So I’ve been a bit absent lately due to an overwhelming amount of university work but as promised, Josh and I filmed the ‘Boyfriend Does My Makeup’ tag. I’d like to make a little disclaimer and say that this wasn’t filmed under the assumption that Josh’s gender has anything to do with his (reasonable) makeup skills and I’d invite anyone and their partner (or friend) to take part because it was great fun to do!

The rules were:
– You should lay out all your products in front of the person – ones that you’re willing to play with, not necessarily the expensive ones! 
– You can’t tell the person what products you use.
– You can’t tell them where it would usually be used.
– You can’t tell them which order they are used in.

This is only my second ever video so I’m still getting to grips with the software… please be kind. We did this as we were getting ready to go to an engagement celebration – there were ciders involved. The video contains lots of swearing, rambling and obscure references…

Remember kids, always drink responsibly (18+)  and don’t let your partner who is clueless about cosmetics draw on your face!

Have you done this tag or something similar with someone?
Have any of your faves got an especially good video of the tag?
