Makeup Revolution and Freedom Makeup Haul

Do you ever get those days where one last little bit of temptation is one last little bit too far? That's what happened to me when an email from TAM Beauty came...offering a £30 mystery bag with purchases over £30. I've done this a couple of times now and always found some decent products in the mystery bag...so before I knew it, I was adding to basket and placing my order!

Sorry for the weird angle of this photo...I was trying to avoid blocking my light, blogger problems!

As you can see, I bought 7 products which totalled just over £30 and so received the mystery bag crammed full of products as well. I've been after some of the products I bought for SO long that it was worth waiting and buying them all at once when the mystery bag promotion was on.

The products I ordered

I'm in desperate need of a new concealer for under my eyes so I ordered this Pro HD Longwear from Freedom. It looks like an LA Girl Pro Conceal dupe. This is the colour Ivory but looks like it might be a touch too dark to use under my eyes. If it is, I'll use it to conceal redness around my nose! The consistency is fab and you get a lot of product.

I'm all about a cream highlight so couldn't resist the Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Stick in Peach Lightening (good name!) It looks like it will be quite subtle on the skin unless it's warmed up first. It also has a buffing sponge on the bottom. I'll use this in the day to add a subtle dewy effect.

To go with the highlight, I ordered the Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Stick in Medium Dark. I ordered Medium Dark because it looked warmer, which suits my skin tone better. The concealer end will be WAY too dark but the contour end looks like it'll be good for a really glamorous look.

I couldn't resist these three lip glosses in Naked, True and Neutral. I already have the Freedom Bare Lipstick collection and love it so these glosses will go perfectly with that. Ever a 00s girl, I do LOVE a lip gloss and these are really pigmented.

L-R Naked, True, Neutral

The other things I ordered where the Freedom Pro Camouflage Paste in CP01 - this is REALLY light and so I might be able to use it under my eyes when warmed up. I bought it to carve out eyebrows and do cut creases. It seems fab coverage. 

I also bought Freedom HD Pro Finish Powder - I'm still searching for my HG face powder for baking with. I really want to try Laura Mercier but pennies won't allow (as I keep buying huge hauls...!) so thought I'd try this one. It looks really fine and the holes letting the product out are small so no powder escape hopefully!

Finally, the Goddess of Love Triple Baked Highlighter for no other reason than I thought it would be a great Instagram prop 🙈 - I'm sure it's a fab highlighter as well! It's a pinky/champagne highlighter with a mother-of-pearl kind of shimmer through it. 

The Mystery ParcelHuge Makeup Revolution and Freedom Makeup haul including a free £25 mystery gift! #bbloggers #makeup #haul


I received a Makeup Revolution Blush Palette in Blush Melts with 8 cream blushes; The Dead Are Alive Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow palette; Awesome Metals Eyeshadow in Black Diamond; a One Blush Stick in Dream; a Makeup Revolution Salvation Lip Lacquer in Gave You All My Love and a Makeup Revolution lip gloss in  Move a Little Closer.

My first impressions were good. The lip colours are a little out there for me, although I did love a pink lip back in the day. I can see me giving these away to be honest. I love the One Blush Sticks and already own a few - this one is very pale and would be suited as a highlighter. I also own an Awesome Metals Eyeshadow in Rose Gold which I love so I'm excited to try Black Diamond.

Makeup Revolution Blush Palette

I've been after a cream blush for a while and have almost bought this palette on more than one occasion so I'm loving this! Swatches show decent colour payoff and a creamy texture, if slightly slippy. I would set it with powder blush perhaps.

Top Row

Bottom Row
 I ADORE Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palettes, and while my tastes are normally warm eyeshadows, I was immediately drawn to the bottom row of this palette, especially that dusky purple at the end.

 The top row pale colours didn't astound me with their pigmentation, although the last four had good colour pay off. I'm not sure I'd wear these colours to be honest. With hooded eyes, light shimmer shadows on my brow bone don't suit me.

Look at the colour payoff here - I love these shades and that matte black is SO pigmented! This row is what makes the palette in my opinion. I can't wait to do some smokey eye looks with these! 

And here ends my haul - I'm really impressed that for £31, I got all of these products. Look out for the mystery bag offer - it's SO worth it. When you spend over £30 you also get free postage and I ordered these on Friday evening and they arrived on the Monday!
