MakeUp Revolution Matte The One Blush Sticks! ♥

If you haven't seen the MakeUp Revolution The One Blush sticks - where have you been recently?! I've seen so many reviews of these and they are all over Instagram and Twitter. I'm so glad MakeUp Revolution are getting the recognition they deserve as in the last six months, they've brought out so many affordable products where the quality is beyond that of high street. Its hard to believe how 'young' the company really is, as they're a blogger staple! 

I posted the other day about the non-matte The One Blush Sticks here and today's post is all about the Matte shades. I like the fact that they are the same 4 shades just with a matte finish instead. I mean, sometimes you fancy a matte cheek and others you don't! I will admit right now 'Matte Rush' is probably my favourite shade - it's so bright and looks gorgeous on the skin. 

MakeUp Revolution The One Blush Sticks (£5*) are brilliant. Normally, i'm quite wary of cream blushers as i can never seem to get them to work for me. I've been applying these with a stippling brush and layering to get the desired colour on my cheeks. These can be worn either sheerly or more pigmented depending on how heavy handed you are applying this. They feel very creamy on the skin and take a bit of time to stipple in to blend them but they desired look is very flattering. I've found these have lasted longer than any of my powder blushes so far - easily standing the test of all day at work then straight out after work with no touching up at all. Matte Rush is probably my favourite with Dream coming a close second. At only £5, they're extremely affordable too like all MakeUp Revolution products.

October 2014 Favourites! ♥

Is it seriously November already? I like November. I mean, it's Movember and who doesn't appreciate a good moustache/beard? It's also sweater weather and people start to get excited for Christmas now Halloween has been and gone. From now on, every shop you go into will be blasting Christmas songs... 

October was a busy month for me and i have definitely had some stand up beauty products this month. I've been quite stressed out recently with work and my skin has suffered because of it. I've been reaching for concealer a lot this month to cover up my break outs and I've ended up loving the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer (£). I didn't even know we could get Tarte here in the UK but i discovered QVC has recently launched the brand. Of course i made a cheeky purchase. I've heard quite a few guru's talk about the Amazonian Clay line - so i thought i should give it a try! The concealer is creamy and easy to blend. It works so well over break outs - and is very full coverage! I don't use full coverage concealers often but I've really enjoyed using this. 

Another face product I've been loving this month is the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation (£) this has been my go to base for a few months now. It's a great medium coverage foundation from the high street. It doesn't feel heavy on my face but makes my skin looks flawless but natural.  It lasts well throughout the day and i will be picking another bottle of this up when this one is finished! 

The last piece of make up I've been reaching for over and over again this month is the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Trio "Walking on Eggshells' (£). This again I've been using almost every day for either a wash of colour on the lid or a more 'done up' look. The eyeshadows are soft, pigmented and long wearing. I find them very easily to use as they blend easily too. I really want to buy a few more of these trio's and quad's from Wet n Wild.

As the weather has turned colder, my already dry skin has been in need of more pick me up's than usual. Once or twice a week, I've been using The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink In Moisture Mask (£) before i go to bed. After using this my skin is always soft, hydrated and firmer. It helps keep my skin from becoming flakey too! 

What have you been loving this month? Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love
