Well hello there!
So no surprise to anyone but I have been shopping and in store and I thought I would share with you what I picked up. As I have mentioned many of times Makeup Revolution is my favourite make up brand because they're products are not only super cheap, they have amazing quality as well! Just a pre-warning, this is going to be a long one so grab your cuppa teas because this is going to be a long read.

I'm just going to quickly mention a couple of things I received for Christmas, I did not purchase these myself but I thought I would to include them:

Ultimate Blush & Light & Contour Palette 2018
I have not had a chance to use this yet but I love how much option you have in this palette, there is 32 pans! It has a shade for every skin tone and different colours of each product. They usually sell these around Christmas time so at the moment they are being sold for £10 which is half price! You can buy this here.

Matte Lip Kit
So I have wanted one of these for the longest time and when I received this for Christmas I was over the moon! I have tried this out a couple of times but I won't go too much into detail as a full review is coming soon! I got the shade 'Echelon' which is the one I did want to buy myself and I love the colour. This lip kits retail for £6 and you can buy them here.

Liquid Bronze Highlighter
I have briefly touched on the liquid highlighters on one of my monthly favourites posts but I do really like these, they do dry down quickly so my only advice is to do one side at a time. But for £6 and them being a complete dupe of the Cover FX liquid highlighters, you can't go wrong. This shade is a tad too dark for me, but in the Summer or when I have a tan it will look a lot better. You can buy this here.

Now onto the things I bought myself recently:

Sugar & Spice Ultra Blush Palette
I have been really getting into blush lately, I never used to wear it but now I'm finding myself putting it on every day. I'm not going to lie I  just bought this so I have more option for blush in my collection. This palette is pretty, it has every shade you would possibly need apart from a coral shade and it has blush toppers! This retails for £4 which is very cheap and you can buy this here.

Newtrals 2 Eyeshadow Palette
This is another product I haven't had a chance to try yet but I am thinking of doing a review because this is only £4!! It has a mix of mattes, shimmers and a couple of shades have the tiniest bit of glitter in them. The shades in this palette are stunning and I have already heard good things and I want to try it for myself. You can buy this here.

Conceal & Define Concealer
I have already put up my review on this concealer, but if you haven't had a chance yet you can read it here. If you have read it you would know that I frickin' love this concealer!! They have 18 shades which is so impressive and for £4 they are such good quality, and people have been comparing this to the Tarte Shape Tape. That review was revolved around the shade C1 but I now have it in C3 which is the exact same tone, just a tiny bit darker. I use the darker shade for my blemishes. If you haven't bought this yet, first of all what are you doing and secondly you can buy them here.

Mega Matte Face Palette
I didn't need this in my collection as I have more than enough face palettes but I love the shades in this. It is a big palette so not travel friendly but I have been using this for the past week and I am loving it.  It has 2 face powders, 3 blushers and 2 contour shades and you can buy this here.

Single Blush
I did buy another blusher but this is a single pan that literally only costs £1 which is insane. I picked this up in the shade 'Treat' which is a coral colour, and I wanted this because I don't have a blush in this shade and I thought for how cheap it is then why not. You can buy this here.

Glow Getter Palette
I wanted this palette for the longest time, I had my eye on it when it first launched but I just never got round to purchasing it. It has 8 huge pans of highlighters which has a different range of shades which I love. It reminds me of the Ofra highlighter palettes but this is waaaaay cheaper than the Ofra one. You can buy this here.

Luminous Luna Liquid Highlighter
I did mention about these above but I purchased this one myself, this is a brand new shade in this collection. It is a pearly white shade which is even more perfect than 'Starlight' for my skin tone. You can buy this here.

Phhewwww....that was a lot of products! I did not buy all this at once, I think its been over the period of a month. Which thinking about it, is not that long at all and I need to control myself more when it comes to makeup. I just can't help it and especially when it comes to Makeup Revolution I cannot resist!

So that was my Makeup Revolution Haul.
Thank you so much for reading,
