Top 5 Makeup Revolution Products….

Hello lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty. I’m Teresa.

Today I thought that I would share with you my top 5 Makeup Revolution products. I don’t have a huge collection of their products, but what I do own I love, so here are a few of my absolute favourites. Let me start with complexion products.

The All About Cream palette is an absolute dream of a blusher palette. There is a shade to suit all skin tones from pretty coral and peach tones to super gorgeous pinks, which are my favourites. My full review of the palette is HERE.

My Fortune Favours the Brave eyeshadow palette doesn’t look this pristine anymore. I have adored using the eyeshadows, especially the golden and taupe shades, they suit my green eyes. The quality as always with Makeup Revolution is amazing. To see my full review click HERE.

I’m not one for strobing or overly highlighting my face, but I do add a slight shimmer to the tops of my cheekbones to add a subtle glow. This 3 Highlighter palette from Makeup Revolution is so pretty with 3 different colours of powder highlighter. I mainly use the centre one which a peachy shade and very pretty. To read my full review click HERE.

FreedomGlowTonic

This product is from Freedom Makeup which is a sister brand to Makeup Revolution. I’ve only been using the Glycolic Glow Tonic for a few weeks and I am obsessed with it, apparently it’s a great dupe for the Pixi glow tonic, I can’t confirm this as I’ve never used the high end one. If you would like to read my thoughts on this glow tonic and why I love it, click HERE.

MURRoseGoldLipstick

I don’t have many Makeup Revolution lipsticks but the ones I do have I love, and my favourite and one that I’ve been wearing a lot over the Summer is this Rose Gold lipstick in the shade Girls Best Friend. It’s so creamy and moisturising on the lips. Check out my full review HERE.

So that’s just 5 of my favourite products from Makeup Revolution and Freedom Makeup. What are your favourites? I’d love to know.

There’s now a one stop shop for all Makeup Revolution and Freedom Makeup plus much more at TAM Beauty HERE.

W7 Cheeky Trio… Bronzer, Blusher, Highlighter Palette.

Hello welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

Back in April I made a small purchase of a few W7 products from Fragrance Direct, you can see which products I bought HERE. I’ve already written a review of the In The Mood Palette HERE. So today I shall share with you my thoughts of the Cheeky Trio Palette.

W7closed

The packaging for this cheeky trio is so pretty, its a pink ombre tin with the branding in gorgeous gold.

W7open

Inside the tin there are 3 really good-sized products, bronzer, blusher and highlighter. I love how each product have the wave pattern within them. Let’s start with the bronzer. It’s a really nice matte bronzer so great for contouring, it’s nicely pigmented and easily buildable to the intensity you want. It lasted a fair while on my skin and it didn’t turn orange. The blusher is  one of the prettiest pink shades of blusher I’ve seen, it’s gorgeous and I use this more than any other at the moment. It’s a good pigment and payoff on the skin and it blends really nicely too, it gives my cheeks a rosy glow that lasts for a few hours. Meanwhile the highlighter just didn’t do anything for me. There is no payoff, It wouldn’t pick up on my brush and there is no sheen to it at all. I know that I shall definitely use the bronzer and blusher, but the highlighter will remain in the tin un-touched. Check out W7 on Fragrance Direct HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today.

MUA Makeup Academy Devotion Palette….

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

This is a fairly new palette to MUA Makeup Academy and it’s right up my street as far as the colours within it are concerned. This is the Devotion Palette for eyes and face.

MuaDevotion4

I was really surprised when this came through the post along with a few other MUA products, as the company sent them to me as a birthday gift back in April. Thank you so much MUA!

MuaDevotion1

The Devotion palette is the perfect mix of 10 matte, shimmer and metallic eyeshadows. It’s multi-formula meaning everything can be used on the face and eyes, and as you can see this palette has a brush for application rather than the usual sponge applicator. I didn’t think that I would use the brush but, I have been. I use it to apply matte eyeshadow into the crease of my eyes and taking it above to try and make my eyes less hooded.

MuaDevotion2

These eyeshadows are lovely and pigmented and they blend really well too. They are buildable to the intensity of colour you want, and it’s perfect for all skin tones.

MuaDevotion3

The two large pans of colour in the palette are metallic cream which can be used as highlighters for the face and as a base for eyeshadows, they can also be used on their own as eyeshadow. Used on their own, they give the eyes a beautiful gloss, making them look awake. If you have oily lids though there might be a problem with them creasing, so it would be a good idea to use a primer first. This is a very pretty eye and face palette, one I think I shall be using quite a bit over the coming weeks into Summer, and it’s a bargain at just £5.00 HERE.

Sorry there are no swatches at the moment, the light took a turn for the worse and we couldn’t get decent photos, but as soon as they are available I’ll update this post.

A Small Fragrance Direct Haul…W7

Hello Lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

One of the places I like to shop for low budget cosmetics is Fragrance Direct, a website selling branded, discounted perfumes, aftershaves, cosmetics, haircare, skincare and beauty products. I’ll leave a link at the end of this post. Mark and I use the website quite a lot, we can get more for our money when we want presents for Christmas and birthdays, and for the occasional “haul” like today. I wanted some W7 cosmetics that I’d seen on a You Tube video, So we put an order in with Fragrance Direct last Friday lunchtime and it arrived on Monday afternoon, fantastic fast delivery from them! We paid £1.99 for standard tracked delivery, they state 5-7 working days from dispatch, it is however FREE standard tracked on orders over £40. At the moment of writing this post there is an offer of Buy 5 get 1 FREE!

CfxGPcDWEAAnGIl

I didn’t buy every product that I saw in the haul video, just the ones I really wanted to try from W7. So from the top of the picture is the Cheeky Trio, a blusher, bronzer and highlighter palette. Someone once said to me that there is a red lipstick out there for everyone, so I’ve been experimenting with a red lippy as I’ve never been a huge fan, and now I think I may have found MY perfect red lipstick! I bought a Butter Kiss lipstick in the shade Red Light. I needed some new eyelash curlers so I picked up Groovy Curls. The In the Mood eyeshadow palette look very similar to the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, but at a fraction of the cost. Lastly I picked up a mascara and eyeliner pencil combo, this is the Big Lash Mascara combo in Blackest Black.

I will of course be bringing you reviews of everything in my little haul very soon, so I hope you will come back for them, in the meantime check out the fab bargains from Fragrance Direct HERE

Makeup Revolution 2nd Birthday…..My First Ever Products!

Hello loves, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

So everyone probably knows by now that Makeup Revolution has celebrated their 2nd birthday, I was there on launch day, it was my first ever “blogger” event and I remember it being a very long and tiring day for both me and Mark. I saw all of the products that Makeup Revolution had in their range then, and now look at them! They have taken the budget makeup market by storm. I came away from the launch with a lovely selection of products in a goody bag, my toes were about to be dipped into the Makeup Revolution water! Below are the products that were in my goody bag, if they are still available I’ll leave a link to them and a link to my reviews too.

IMG_0202

The Salvation Intense Lip Lacquer in the shade A Love Like That was the first lip lacquer that I’d tried from any brand. You can see my thoughts HERE and they are now just £1.50 HERE

IMG_0218

Another lip product in my goody bag was the lovely Amazing Sheer Lipgloss in the shade Move a Little Closer. You can take a look at my review HERE and they are now just 50p on the Makeup Revolution website HERE.

IMG_9503

The Matte Effect Foundation wasn’t one of my favourite products in the goody bag, I was given the shade Ivory which I thought was too light for me at the time. You can see my very honest thoughts HERE and it’s still available HERE.

IMG_9433

This single eyeshadow is in the shade Candy Frosted, and I was scared to use it because it was such a bright colour, but see what I really thought HERE.  They are still available HERE

20140402_171845

I was really excited to have this in my goody bag, it’s the Vivid Baked Bronzer in the shade Golden Days. See my thoughts HERE. Some shades are still available HERE.

20140402_171810

 The Vivid Baked Highlighter in the shade Peach Lights was a joy to behold, see why HERE this highlighter isn’t available at the moment, but there are other beautiful highlighters to choose from HERE

IMG_9106

My very first Makeup Revolution palette was the Redemption Palette Iconic 3 which at the time everyone was saying  it was a “dupe” for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. See what I thought HERE it’s still available now on the website HERE

20140420_180952

I also had this stunning nail polish in my goody bag, a very dark almost Navy blue. I still use it now, but unfortunately Makeup Revolution no longer stock nail polish on their website. Thank goodness I have every single colour they had at the time!

IMG_9901

This Amazing Lengths mascara is still being used, for my eyebrows. See my thoughts HERE it doesn’t appear to available now, but there are other lovely mascaras to see HERE

IMG_0108

Another product that was quite scary when I first saw it was the Awesome Metals eyeshadow, it’s a beautiful eyeshadow but it wasn’t for me. See my review HERE and the whole colour range HERE

IMG_9446

This is the last product that was in my goody bag from the launch of Makeup Revolution, it’s from their amazing £1.00 range and I had been given the shade The One. I was scared of it being a nude shade, but see my exact thoughts HERE and it’s still available HERE

So they were my first ever products from Makeup Revolution, some hits some misses. My collection of Revolution products has since grown, I have quite a few pieces now and I shall be purchasing a few more as soon as I’m able too. What was your first MUR product? I’d love to know.

 Happy 2nd Birthday Makeup Revolution
