Make Up Revolution Vamp Lipstick in Rebel with Cause

I picked up this lipstick on my very first Makeup Revolution Haul and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it as it's in one of my most favourite shades - a deep berry pink, it just so happens to be a beautiful shade for Autumn/Winter as well! This gorgeous little lipstick is named Rebel with Cause (have to admit, I am definitely a fan of the shade name as well! It definitely suits the lipstick!) As soon as I swatched it in store I fell in love with the quality and shade of the lipsticks - and it turns out there was only one left in the whole of Superdrug  -it was clearly fate, and it quickly made it's way home with me.

This lipstick retails at £1 and so for that price, I really wasn't expecting much but I was actually blown away. I was expecting a soft colour without much payoff and for it to have a waxy texture so many of the cheaper lipsticks have. But instead, I was met with a rich, creamy lipstick that glides on effortlessly and with such high pigmentation that it would even give some MAC lipsticks a run for their money! I can safely say this is a dupe for a MAC lipstick as well.. but i'll get on to that later.

LUSH D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap*

This month I was lucky enough to receive a few goodies thanks to the guys over at Meadowhall Shopping Centre and one of those items was this - Lush's D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap* It's something that I have been meaning to try for a few weeks now after spotting it in my local store whilst stocking up on my American Cream conditioner.

It says it is Strawberry scented but as soon as I opened the typical smell of a Lush store hit me instead - although, is that really a negative? Lush stores smell incredible anyway! I thought that maybe the strawberry scent would come out once I had opened it and used it a few times, but no - I still just smelt the standard Lush store smell. It still smells gorgeous though, so I really don't mind!

The consistency was thicker than I was expecting - I was expecting a soft mousse but it felt more like a very, very thick cream that needed to melt a little with the heat from your skin before you could lather it up on your legs which I found did make it a little hard to get out the tub and I found myself using a little more than needed before I got used to how much product I would need.I thought I would need quite a lot of product because of how thick it was so I assumed that it wouldn't go along way wither, but I was pleasantly surprised and once the soap had melted a little from the body heat, it created a gentle lather and I didn't need as much as first thought.

Make Up Revolution Atomic Lipstick Collection

Last month I was lucky enough to attend the #SheffieldBBloggers meet up and we each received an incredible goody bag filled to the brim with some amazing products which companies and brands were kind enough to donate for the event - one of those brands was Make Up Revolution, the amazing guys behind the brand had sent a selection of products out that would be popped into our goody bags. I'm of course talking about the Atomic Lipstick Collection which features 5 lipsticks with a whole range of shades and colours to chose from. I was really excited to see what we had received these as some of the colours I had been wanting to try for a while now so I was really happy I was finally able to try them out - I'm walking about the stunning classic red shade, and I had seen the green lipstick, named Serpent do the rounds on the bloggersphere, so even though I wouldn't class it as an every day lipstick (!!) I was still excited to have a play with it once I got home.
