Revolution Rose Gold Palette Review + Look

If you read a recent post of mine called my gift swapping with Ellie, then you will have seen that she kindly gifted my the Revolution mini eye shadow palette in Rose Gold. As soon as I opened this gift, I was so excited to try it. I have never experimented with using pink shadows on my eyes very much so this provided me with the perfect excuse too! 

The palette contains 6 matte shades and 2 shimmers, it is quite a small palette but you do get a good amount of each shadow (especially the shimmers), you also get a very good quality mirror which makes it so easy to travel with and it has a gorgeous shade range. 

The palette has a light toned brown shade in the top right corner which makes for a great base to layer the rest of the shadows on to. The light toned pink with purple undertones which is next to it works really well in the crease or over the lid. The dark, plum shade is amazing in the outer corner as it adds a lot of depth and smokes the look out. Below these, the wine / dark purple shade is also fab for the outer corner. The light pink is quite out there so it is something that I struggle more to incorporate more in to looks but as it is so bright, it really adds a pop of colour to any look. Finally, there is a warm toned pink with brown undertones which is also great for all over the lid or for the crease to blend the other shadows together. All of the matte shades are very build-able and each one has different variations of pigmentation, I found that the lighter ones needed more layering. 

As for the shimmers, there is a gorgeous light pink shadow in the top left hand corner which can also be used as a highlighter, when I have used this, I always apply it to my inner corner of on the inner proportion of my eyelid. The other shimmer is a darker toned pink which is also stunning. Both shimmers are very pigmented and surprisingly, have got little fallout. 

Within this post, I though it may also be interesting to show you one of the eye looks that I have created whilst using this palette. I started off with my usual base routine and applied an eye primer before the eye shadow. To start, I applied the shade 3rd from the left in the bottom row all over my lid, I used a few layers so that it stood out and was pigmented. I then used the purple toned shadow just above it and blended this through my crease. I then used the light toned brown and applied it on the inner proportion of my eye lid so that there was a variation of colour. Finally, I mixed the 2 darkest shades and applied them to my outer corner and finished it all off by putting the light pink shimmer in my inner corners! 

Thank you to Ellie for kindly gifting me this palette as you’ve pushed me to experiment more!! I wished that my phone quality could do the shadows as much justice as they looked so much more pigmented in person.

Thank you for reading, I hope that you enjoyed this post as I have loved testing out this eye shadow palette. If you’d like to follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you can find me at @bethxkate

Christmas Gift Swap with Ellie

If you were following my blog a while ago, you may have seen that me and Ellie from TheDiaryofEllie did a blogger box swap where we each sent each other some of our favourite beauty items. This Christmas, we have decided to do it again, however, we upped the budget to around £25-£30 (which we both definitely didn’t stick too.. especially Ellie) and decided to not give it a theme so we could buy each other anything we wanted. 

In this post, you will be seeing all of the gifts that Ellie kindly gifted to me and on her blog she will be doing a post about what I got her! Click here to view Ellie’s version.. you won’t regret. 

When opening Ellie’s gift to me, she had numbered each of the gifts so that I knew what order to open them in. The first gift contained 3 gorgeous prints which are amazing quality and I can’t wait to frame them or use them within backgrounds of blog posts so keep an eye out for them. 

The next gift that I opened contained a little Winnie The Pooh trinket dish from Primark. This is so cute and I love little dishes like these to keep my jewellery and SD cards in. This would also make a really cute blog prop so look out for this in backgrounds aswell. 

The third gift that I opened contained a gorgeous, pink makeup bag with 3 cactus’ on it. Inside it also contained 3 little goodies. These being, a Colourpop lipstick, a mini better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced and a Revolution concealer that was the wrong shade for Ellie. I was so excited by the mascara and lipstick as I’ve wanted to try Colourpop for so long and have also seen so many amazing reviews about the mascara, if I like this then I will definitely be buying the full sized version! 

Ellie also kindly gifted me the Revolution Rose Gold mini palette, this looks absolutely gorgeous and I’m obsessed with Revolution. A full, in-depth review will be coming on this very soon so keep an eye out! 

The forth and final gift that I opened, was the biggest of them all and I actually can’t believe that Ellie actually got me this. She got me the Spectrum Mean Girls makeup bag and brush set!! I saw this on Twitter and was soooo desperate to get it for myself but couldn’t spend that much on myself so close to Christmas so I’m so grateful that Ellie got me this.. I almost cried when opening it haha! Spectrum are such a great company and I love my other brushes from them so I’m extremely excited to try these ones and how cute is the bag?? 

I’m so so thankful for all of the gifts that Ellie got me and still can’t believe the last one, I’m also so grateful for our friendship and can’t wait until the day we finally meetup! Thank you once again Ellie, I can’t wait to see what you thought of all of the gifts that I got you!

Thank you for reading, I hope that you enjoyed. If you would like to check Ellie’s version of this post, click here, I definitely recommend that you do and give her a follow. If you’d like to follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you can find me at @bethxkate

A Week In Outfits – Sixth Form

As it is now sadly back to school season, me and Amelia from It’s Mee thought it would be fun to collab on a post of a week in outfits that we would wear to our sixth forms. My sixth form does’t have very strict rules on what we can wear whereas Amelia’s has a smart dress code so we thought it would be interesting to do these posts as a comparison. Make sure to check out Amelia’s post by clicking here and give her blog a follow, her posts are amazing and she’s so lovely.

Travel: Las Vegas 2018

If you follow me on any of my social media accounts, you will have seen that over the past 2 weeks (3rd to the 19th of August), I have been on holiday to Las Vegas. I have been twice before with my family and it’s one of my favourite places to visit. Many people were shocked when we told them we were visiting for 2 weeks as it is often seen as a ‘long weekend’ type holiday but we always find a lot to do and also appreciate the hot weather so have chilled days by the pool. This post will sum up the whole trip and include some of my favourite photos!
