Makeup Revolution Renaissance Palette…Daytime

So Mark surprised me with a little Superdrug delivery last week and one of the products inside was this smashing palette by Makeup Revolution, this is the Renaissance Palette, Daytime.

A cute little compact sized palette in a pretty cream with rose gold hard wear, and the palette itself is shrouded in a cream velour pouch which is snuggled in a cream and gold  box. Now the photos have been taken I wont keep my palette in the box or pouch, the box will go into the recycling bin, and the pouch I’m keeping in my handbag for when I’m out and about, sometimes I get the urge to have to remove the jewellery I’m wearing that day, and it was always like searching an abyss in my hand bag to retrieve earrings so now I can just pop them in the little pouch should the urge take me! Anyway I digress, what did I think of the Renaissance Palette?

The palette is as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside. The five neutral eyeshadows are sitting in a bed of gold, and are a really good size individually. The first shade is a cream coloured shimmer shade for highlighting the eye the others are all matte eyeshadows. There’s a double ended applicator laying to the front of the palette, this time it’s brushes on both ends instead of the usual sponge applicator. The eyeshadows themselves are as you would expect from Makeup Revolution, lovely and buttery soft and so easy to blend. I got a little fall out from the darkest shade when putting under my lower lashes, but a quick swipe with a fluffy brush and it’s soon sorted.

The Renaissance Palette Daytime is just what it says it is, perfect for your natural daytime look, and there’s one for night time too, with both just £8.00 each on TAM Beauty website HERE. If you aren’t in the UK, TAM Beauty does ship internationally. If you are in the UK you can also buy from Superdrug online HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today, I shall be back soon to share a few more colour cosmetics products with you. I feel like it’s been an absolute age since I had some makeup reviews here on EAB so I must rectify that.

See you soon.

My 2016 Beauty Highlights!

Hello lovelies, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Welcome to the first Elegant Ageless Beauty of 2017..

I hope that those of you who celebrate it, all had a fabulous Christmas. For my first post of 2017 I thought that I would share with you what products I have really loved during 2016, and there are many to be honest, more skincare than makeup I reckon so here goes and I shall start with some makeup brushes.

LeonHardy-vpBrushSet

These absolutely stunning brushes are full of Swarovski crystals. By Leon Hardy and sent to me from Thomas Dittas to review, they are by far my favourite brushes. I love the way they look, the weight is perfect and because they aren’t too long means I can use my little magnifying mirror in my hand for close up application. If you would like to read my full review of these stunning brushes you can find it HERE.

Winning Heaven Skincare Gold Bee Venom Mask in their 21st birthday competition was one of the best things that happened to me and my blog last year! I’ve used it many times since I’ve had it and my skin always looks fantastic afterwards and for a few days thereafter too. I think I’m the luckiest blogger to have won such a prestigious product. If you want to see my full, honest review, go HERE.

beepeel

Now this product, the Heaven Skincare Bee Peel was sent to me as a complete surprise. It arrived right out of the blue. It’s the newest of Heaven Skincare’s products, to exfoliate and resurface the look of the skin. It really is FABULOUS! Just look at the beautiful packaging too! If you would like to see my full review of the Bee Peel you can see it HERE.

So last April for my birthday, Jackie from Tam Beauty/Makeup Revolution very kindly gifted me the fantastic Fortune Favours The Brave eye shadow palette, which was created in collaboration with Jane Cunningham, British Beauty Blogger. I’ve used it such a lot over the year, and really enjoy it still. My full review is HERE.

I dipped my toes into the cleansing balm water last year, thanks to my friend Kim who is Global Director of Spa Development at Omorovicza Cosmetics, and also beauty blogger at thefabcompany. Kim very kindly sent me a couple of wonderful products to try, one being this amazing Thermal Cleansing Balm from Hungarian brand Omorovicza. I absolutely adored using it and I’m hoping to be able to treat myself to another one. If you would like to read my review, which includes links to Kim’s blog too, click HERE.

Ahh, Timeless Truth sheet facial masks! A true obsession over the last year. With thanks to my friend Angela, I got to try out a lot of Timeless Truth masks, including the newest one. Snow Algae & Hyalauronic Bio Cellulose mask. I’ve tried a couple of sheet masks from another brand, but they just don’t match up to these, in my opinion. There’s a link HERE if you would like to see some reviews of all Timeless Truth masks I’ve tried.

Well, that’s some of my 2016 highlights in a nutshell, and I would just like to say a big thank you to all these amazing companies who have sent me such gorgeous products to try, and then to review them here on Elegant Ageless Beauty. I also want to say a massive thank you to all of you, if it wasn’t for you all reading my blog there would be no Elegant Ageless Beauty. THANK YOU!

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.

IMG_3183

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.

April Favourites…

Hi lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

It’s a little late but here’s my April Favourites, and there are quite a few products that I’ve loved over the last month, some are new favourites and some are always on this old face of mine.

AprilFaves

Mark and I have been out and about quite a bit lately visiting family etc, and now the nicer weather has arrived in England I’m using a lighter base on my face, and my favourite is the gorgeous Heaven Skincare Silk  Skin Bee Bee Cream, it minimises fine lines and wrinkles because it’s anti ageing and contains the patented ABeetoxin which was created by Deborah Mitchell owner of Heaven Skincare. It also has an SPF20. It gives my skin a lovely glow while at the same time provides hydration and coverage. You can read my full review HERE.

Another favourite that I use every day is my Heaven Skincare Heavenly Eyes Regenerating Complex. It is my perfect eye cream! I’ve been using this every day since December last year and I love the way my under eyes are looking. I still have my “hoods” and this lifts them slightly, temporarily, after all nothing will get rid of those except surgery, this eye cream is so cooling and hydrating it leaves my under eyes smooth and ready for makeup, and it doesn’t cause any puffiness either. Read full review HERE.

What can I say about this sell out palette from Makeup Revolution? It has become my favourite palette that the brand has given us so far. It’s in collab with Jane Cunningham aka British Beauty Blogger. It’s perfect for any age, the mixture of the different colors and textures is truly fab read my full review HERE.

My next favourite I haven’t actually reviewed yet. It was one of my birthday pressies from Mark, a gorgeous gift set called In The Pink and it’s from the brand Bomb Cosmetics. I love bath bombs but don’t tend to get to a Lush store so when a shop in our town began stocking Bomb Cosmetics products I was a very happy bunny. This gift set is gorgeous, it’s pink, it’s fruity, it’s very girly it’s just ME! I will be writing reviews very soon, so I hope you will come back for that.

There is a review coming of the MUA Makeup Academy Eye Define Volume Nourish & Care mascara. It’s made it into my April favourites because I’ve been using it every day since Jade at MUA sent it to me as a gift for my birthday, along with a cute little eye lash curler too. Used together they have transformed the way my eyelashes look, and I’m very happy with that!

MUA Skin Define Matte Perfect foundation, just so lovely it had to be in my April favourites. I don’t use a heavier foundation in the warmer months, I go for a BB cream, but this has been my go to foundation up till now. You can read why I love it HERE.

My last two favourites I thought I would never get to try. They were gifted to me by my blogger friend Kim Davis from Thefabcompany  HERE. She sent me a Thermal Cleansing Balm from Omorovicza to try and it’s been fabulous to use. I’ve been using it at night to remove all traces of the day. I reviewed it HERE. The Queen of Hungary Mist is a gorgeous refreshing facial mist that I use after cleansing every morning and night. It’s been fabulous for those hot flush moments too, when I get a hot flush I spritz my face and the back of the neck, wonderful! My review is HERE.

So that’s my favourites for April, I wonder if any of them will be in my May favourites? We’ll see.

Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipstick

Hello, Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

This March Makeup Revolution celebrated their 2nd Birthday with a huge party in London which unfortunately I couldn’t go too. I may have missed out on the cocktails, new product launches and a speech by Adam Minto owner of Makeup Revolution, but I was compensated with a fabulous goody bag  which was sent to me with products from the brand and also Freedom Makeup and Superdrug. One of my favourite products in my goody bag is the Rose Gold Lipstick in the shade Girls Best Friend.

MURRoseGoldLipstick

How gorgeous is this packaging! It’s rose gold coloured metal effect bullet shaped, similar to the Mac lipsticks, but I think rather prettier. There’s no branding on the outside of the packaging, you don’t see that until you twist up the lipstick. The bottom of the bullet shows the lipstick shade and name. The shade I have is Girls Best Friend, a pretty bright pink. It’s a blue toned pink which I thought would look horrendous on me, but I adore the colour and it looks pretty good too.

The rose gold lipstick formula is so lovely, very creamy and glides onto the lips like I was applying my favourite lip balm. It’s very comfortable to wear, doesn’t feel heavy. I hate lipstick that I can feel on my lips, I prefer a lightweight lipstick and this fits the bill for me. It’s not a high gloss lipstick and it’s certainly not a matte finish either, it gives off a really pretty sheen which make the lips look and feel hydrated. The staying power is pretty good, it lasted on my lips without reapplying for a couple of hours, during which time I’d eaten toast had a large glass of water and a couple of coffees, to be fair only the sheen of the lipstick disappeared,  it is so pigmented it left my lips with a stain to them. You could always add a clear lip balm or a lip gloss to bring the sheen back if so wished.

There are 5 shades in the Rose Gold Lipstick collection at Makeup Revolution, and I only want 1 more, the nude shade called Chauffeur. The other shades are rather too “vampy” for me and I know they won’t suit me. But if I did purchase them all and some didn’t suit me it wouldn’t be a great problem they are only £3.00! Check out Tam Beauty website to see these beauties, HERE

Lots of love, Teresa
