Save or Splurge: Real Techniques 301 Bold Metals vs Makeup Revolution Ultra Metals …

Hey Beauties! I feel like its been so long since i have done a Save or Splurge post. When i was in superdrug recently I found out that the Real Techniques 301 Bold Metals and the Makeup Revolution Ultra Metals Contour Brush look pretty much the same…..but do they perform the same? Both brushes are what is called a flat top contour brush, these basically give you a really defined contour because the brush itself is really densely packed.

Must Have Makeup Brushes

Hey Beauties! When you’re starting out with makeup knowing what makeup brush does what can be a bit mind-boggling, so I thought I would list my must have makeup brushes, what they do and how I use them You might find that with makeup brushes the packaging might say its say for example a concealer brush, but it might be used for something completely different like laying down eyeshadow or filling in your lips. I use a variety of different brushes from high-end brands to high street. Right now my favourite brand for brushes is Real Techniques as they offer…

Best Budget Beauty Buys

Hey Beauties! Today I wanted to talk about something I really love doing and that is finding the best budget beauty buys. You wouldn’t believe that only 5/6 years ago there wasn’t as much choice in the way of makeup/skincare at place like Boots or Superdrug and to be honest the products weren’t that amazing but these days I feel like the drugstore has become a real competitor for the higher brands out there. You can find brands like Makeup Revolution, NYX, Kiko – all brands who produce really high quality products at affordable prices. First product we have are…

Save or Splurge – Real Techniques VS Beauty Blender

Let’s get one thing out there…I love a good makeup sponge and,  no I’m not talking about the makeup sponge of old,  I’m talking about the new type of sponges like your Beauty Blenders and Real Techniques.

Hey Beauties! If you are a regular readers you will know i am a big fan of Real Techniques they are really affordable, great quality and last much longer than some of the other brushes i have had from higher end brands.

First of the new launches we have the Sculpting Brush which is said to feature a wide angled head which is specifically designed to help create defined contours on the face. So this would be a good brush to use with either powder or cream contour.…
