Hey Lovelies,

I was surprised the other week to see a cute little parcel from Makeup Revolution including eyeshadows, dusts and their new Aqua Seal Liquid Eye Primer*. I was over the moon to receive these, as it feels like it's been far too long since I reviewed eye products.

These gorgeous, shimmery eyeshadows come in the shades "I Want U" and "Make It Happen" which I think were quite cheeky names! It reminded me of the types of names that Nars use for their blushers. A creative name makes me remember the product more, as it stands out. It also makes for funny conversation "I love the new product I picked up, it's called Orgasm...". Saying "I Want U" and "Make It Happen" in a sentence could lead to anything, just saying.

Both shades have on the right, used with the Aqua Seal Liquid Eye Primer, and the left without. You should be able to see that with the primer, it creates more of a foil look, but will also stay on your eyes for longer. I love a good matte shade, don't get me wrong, but there is something about my taste that screams bring me the glitter. Anything with shimmer or glitter in, seems to really stand out to me, and these don't half make your eyes pop. For £1, there is surely not much you can moan about, aside possible lasting power, but that's were the eye primer comes into play.

These eye dusts are in the shades "Agonise" and "Confront", a little different to the names of the eyeshadows, but in very similar colours. At £1 each too, I was very hopeful to see great results for the small price you pay. You have to apply these gently, and press the dust onto your eye once you've applied primer, as it has a tendency to go on your cheeks if you add too much to your brush.

As with the eyeshadows, the right is applied with primer on top. You can tell that the colour is darker with the primer, and has that great foil look to it. As these are swatched on my hands (I was having a bad face day) it seems to enhance the creases on my skin, but this wouldn't happen on your eyelids unless you had (not intended to offend) saggier skin there. I constantly write on my blog posts that I am honest in reviewing every product I try out, and for the price you pay for Makeup Revolution, I'm genuinely surprised with the quality. I'm a fussy bugger when it comes to eyeshadows, but I seem to fall more and more in love with MR's products. Bought or sent, I'm building up quite a collection and I'm loving it.

This is the Aqua Seal Liquid Eye Primer (£3) that comes in a tiny little bottle so cute! It claims "Ultra high performance" and regarding the small cost for the primer, it is pretty good. You get for what you pay for; I don't think I will find a primer I feel works for me 100%  as I'm incredibly fussy, and constantly swap between wanting a dash of colour to even out my skintone, like Benefit's Stay Don't Stray, and wanting a clear primer. If you're a lover of clear primers, this works just lovely! I've not tried it as a waterproof primer yet, as I've not been out in the rain, nor want to conquer my stupid fear of dipping my face in a bath/sink full of water. 

When it comes to waterproof products, nothing, in my opinion, will be 100% waterproof or it would be impossible to remove. Without testing this, my favourite thing about this is definitely the foil effect, if you've not been able to tell already... I love how it can change the effect of your makeup with a drop of primer, how?!

If you've not tried Makeup Revolution, you should. I was sent these samples and was not paid to review these products positively. I really do enjoy makeup and this brand is definitely one of my favourite brands at the minute!
