Revlon Lip Butter Peach Parfait

Much like the other products by Revlon these little lip wonders come packaged complete with the quilted design on the plastic outer sleeves, which gives a slight high-end feel.
Each shades packaging matches the shade inside, and I do like a bit of colour coordination!
In my opinion the casing is pretty, practical and sturdy which is all I can ask for.

Revlon Peach Parfait Lip Butter is a warm peach almost coral shade that is not as well pigmented as it could be but its easy to wear as it is a suit all type of skin tone.

In terms of dupes it reminds me most of Nars Orgasm which it is very similar to, it also shares the same golden shimmer due to the tiny gold glitter particles. 
They are also similar to Mac Cremesheen lipsticks as they feel and wear very similar on my lips, obviously each one of us will have different results but this is what they remind me of.

The formula of these is something else, this shade is well pigmented and glides on very much like a traditional lip balm. Yet it has much more colour pay off in comparison to a standard tinted lip balm. It gives a semi-opaque coverage of colour with a light glossy finish, they are very moisturising and comfortable to wear.

The Revlon Lip Butters have a very mild typical lipstick scent but nothing noticeable when worn.
I found this to wear around 1-2 hours so its not exactly long lasting.

Overall I am very impressed with these lipstick/lip balm hybrids!

MUA Heaven and Earth Eyeshadow Palette

The Heaven and Earth palette contains 12 shadows. They are all shimmery which is not great for me because I prefer to matte shades. 
All the shadows are neutral which makes this a fantastic daytime product, but the darker shades are great for evening make up. 

The shadows are very similar so blend really well together for natural/nude eye looks.
As a fan of subtle eye 'looks', this is brilliant for me. The shades are nudes and natural browns that allow me to experiment without looking like I've fallen face first into my makeup bag. 

The shadows have a slight shimmer to them and are very pigmented considering the low price.
I find that all the shadows are well pigmented and blend easily but you do get a fair bit of fall out with them so I'd recommend to do eyes first and base makeup last. 

(Top row left to right and bottom row)

I think this palette is great for £4. It has well pigmented shadows and is a great neutral palette. The issues with fall out aren't too bad but I don't find the packaging to be good and it is really stiff to open but for the price I can't really complain.

Benefit High Beam Complexion Enhancer

I've had High Beam from Benefit for quite some time but have recently re-discovered it.
High Beam is a liquid creamy pinkish tint that can be used anywhere on the face that you might want to highlight.  The packaging recommends putting it on the cheekbones, brow bone, and/or bridge of nose.  

The product comes in a glass jar with a brush applicator similar to a bottle of nail polish.  Personally, I would have preferred a squeeze type packaging.
I apply this product using the brush to put about 4 small dots on the upper part of my cheekbones after other makeup is completed.  I simply pat it in with my fingers or use a brush to blend if you prefer.  
 I would recommend this product for all skin types.  It is perfect for a dewy glow look.

Soap & Glory Thick and Fast Mascara

This mascara is jet black that does an amazing job of thickening your lashes without clumping or drying too fast before you apply a second coat. 
I wouldn’t say it does much for the length however if you felt you needed more volume you could apply a lengthening mascara on first then this afterwards. 

It claims to give a super volume and I will say that whilst wearing this mascara three people asked what mascara I use! It must be doing something right.

It’s easy to get off after a long day, which is great as I’m very low maintenance when it comes to a beauty regime. I want something that goes on easily, does the job, and comes off with little effort. In addition, it doesn’t smudge or come off my eyes in the day – perfect!

I like the thick brush so it gives even coverage, although it can be tricky to apply when doing corner of my eye.
Also, I did a review on the Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl Waterproof Eyeliner which you can read here.
