Can everyone congratulate me on the shortest lived spending ban ever? I did pre-warn that if Freedom (a new brand from the people behind Revolution) was going to launch this month, then I might break the ban. I did keep myself very restrained with my order – only ordering £12.40 worth of products and delivery was free. I’ve talked about how much I love Revolution weekly on my blog, and would have broke the ban eventually as I saw reviews rolling in, so I thought I may as well get it out the way on the day of launch and order the few items I wanted to try.
Pro Glow Purr – £2.50
I couldn’t work out if this was horrendous or magnificent – so I got it this also looks a lot like a dupe from Too Faced and I have loved the products I’ve had from them in my Love Me Beauty box, that I decided to give it a go.
Bronze and Baked Palette – £6
In the teaser promo there was one product in particular that stood out to me as the thing that I needed. Right now, I’m all about the bronzer and highlighting – I don’t like a really over the top look, but for summer I’m wearing quite stripped back makeup with really glowing bronzed skin. A mix of 8 matte, shimmer and highlighting shades, I’m excited to give this a try. There’s also 2 beautiful blush palettes similar to this, one in pinks one in peach which I have my eye on too, if this one is any good.
Lipsticks Candy Sweet & Born With It – £1 Each
I had no need for either of these, but at £1 I couldn’t resist. Both pretty shades and I don’t think I have anything which is like Candy Sweet at all in my collection. Born With It reminds me of a slightly pinker version of MACs Viva Glam Cyndi – I might do a side by side comparison of this in future!
Pro Butters Sugar Fix – £3 Each
These seem quite expensive when compared the lipsticks, but you’ll know that I’ve been loving liquid lipsticks since trying the OFRA ones if you read regularly – and these looked a bit similar from what I could tell. It’s more of a halfway house between a lipstick and a gloss – it’s not a super sticky formulation, but it’s got a thicker more shiny effect than a lipstick
Nail Polishes 430 (Raspberry) and 423 (Coral) – £1 each
I am physically unable to not try a nail polish when a new brand comes along. I picked up 2 pretty standard shades, as you’d expect from a budget line, everything was pretty standard in terms of their line up.
The only thing that I wish you could do is order products from both Revolution and Freedom together. This essentially is the same brand just in different packaging – it’s a clever idea as they’ve created excitement around the brand being from another, but it means 2 separate websites are needed, so if you’re looking to place an order from across both the brands it’s a little annoying – I imagine they’re dispatched from the same warehouse!
There’s a discount code running until the 30th June, I got it because I signed up to their early newsletters early, so might be worth a go if you want to order, 20% off – enter BEFREETOMAKEUP.
