Chocolate Orange & Chocolate Rose Gold

Makeup Revolution have incredible eyeshadow palettes, and these are just as exceptional. These are the two palettes I have been most excited about buying, Chocolate Rose Gold and Chocolate Orange. Rose gold hues  and burnt orange and coppers? I was in my element and beyond eager for these to arrive! And WOW. Regardless of just how many palettes Makeup Revolution bring out, the shades they create and the colours they put together are always unique and stunning.

Chocolate Orange

Makeup Revolution Claims:
A warm tone lover’s DREAM! We have all the beautiful chocolate and orange shades you desire to create those stunning flattering eye looks. A mix of matte and shimmer shades, that are long wearing, highly pigmented and soft to blend. 

This palette is gorgeous! The majority of the finishes are matte with a few shimmers, and the selection is what dreams are made of. There is the obvious chocolate orange theme with burnt oranges and neutral chocolate tones, but some soft pinks thrown into the mix. I love this combination, and putting the warm pinks with the burnt oranges isn’t something I would have thought to try until seeing them together in this palette. My favourite shades have to be * an amazing burnt orange tone & * an unusual mustard yellow. Individually these colours can be used to create such a wide range of looks, but all together in the palette they really are beautiful.

 

Chocolate Rose Gold

Makeup Revolution Claims:
For our lovers of chocolate, and rose gold, we have the palette for you. Gorgeous mix of shimmer, pressed glitter and mattes in 16 amazing shades to create an array of beautiful eye looks. On trend shades ranging from soft neutrals, to rustic oranges, to deep reds to fudge browns, with amazing shimmers and glitters to take your look to the next level. 

Oh my! I don’t actually know where to start with this one. This palette definitely has more of a glam feel, with so many shimmers in such vibrant colours it’s hard to not use them all at once! The matte shades again have a chocolatey vibe but with pinky mauve tones taking this selection to whole other level. * is a bright pink that is so wearable on its own, but layering the shimmers on top!? I almost can’t handle it. To me, it’s the shimmers in this palette that makes it so unique. There are pinks, bronze and greens – * a light bright green, is the shade that gets me the most excited. This palette really is outstanding!

Overall, I am yet to buy a Makeup Revolution Chocolate Palette that I haven’t completely fallen in love with. The packaging theme for this collection is almost edible, and each palette is coloured to suit its purpose. Makeup Revolution products are always ridiculously affordable, and with these palettes at the same price as the rest of the collection at £8.99 it  makes it perfectly OK to collect them all! Each palette has 16 shades, and they are all so pigmented and blendable with shades to highlight, transition, smoke and pop. The colour selections are in their own league. Absolutely stunning!

Now this is a range that is literally as good as it looks. The Dirty Works Coconut Body collection is the perfect combination of gorgeous smelling pamper products with amazing results. The Coconut oils and Shea butters create a dreamy lather that are a genuine joy to use, leaving you with baby soft skin and a tropical scent. This range fits together perfectly, and they just look so darn good!

Dirty Works Coconut Body Wash

Dirty Works Claims:
Pamper your skin and your senses with this richly indulgent body wash. A luxurious blend of nourishing Coconut Oil combined with hydrating Passionfruit extract and moisture-rich Allantoin to leave skin soft and smooth.

This body wash is on the thicker side, but it is so concentrated that a little really goes a long way. A coin sized amount lathers up to be able to wash your entire body, and it is at this point that the excitement for the range begins! The scent is so delicious, and this alone leaves skin feeling soft and moisturised. And here comes the best bit – it is £2.50!! What!? Incredible. I don’t know how they’ve done it, but all that matters is that they have. I even used this just as a handwash, the smell is just too addictive!

 

Dirty Works Coconut Foaming Sugar Scrub

Dirty Works Claims:
Help banish dry, dull skin with this Coconut Foaming Sugar Scrub containing natural sugar crystals to exfoliate, nourishing Coconut Oil and hydrating Shea Butter. The creamy formulation lathers up into a frothy, foamy, fabulous concoction that leaves skin feeling super soft, cleansed and smelling delicious!

OK now this is pretty special. Although i do love the idea of a body scrub, i usually find it too much hassle and messy. But! The fact that this sugar scrub foams makes it so easy to use – and I am hooked. The exfoliating granules aren’t sharp or too intense, but you can really feel them working. Lathering this up feels so luxurious and skin tingling, it’s a real treat. Pricing, this is slightly more expensive… at £3.50! The price of this sugar scrub is handy considering I end up using it almost every day, home spa style luxury at this price? I’m almost lost for words!

 

Dirty Works Coconut Body Lotion

Dirty Works Claims:
This lightweight, fast absorbing and ultra nourishing body lotion combines hydrating Coconut extract and Shea Butter, for an intense moisture boost.
Added Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter helps to soothe and condition skin leaving it soft, smooth and silky allowing you to escape to an exotic paradise.

And so to finish off this gorgeous ritual, the body lotion really is the cherry on the top. As with both the previous products, a little goes a long way. Rubbing this in after using the body wash and the sugar scrub makes skin unbelievebly soft, and due to its’ lightweight consistency it soaks in fairly quickly. As with the body wash I also tend to reach for this as a hand cream (even though they also have hand creams – must try!), and softness just goes on and on. Being the most expensive out of the three, it is still only £4.00. Another shocker on just how affordable it can be to have skin that feels like silk!

 

Overall, this range is just fabulous. Being a sucker for packaging, I will admit it was the style of these products that first got my attention. When I first tried them out I was so impressed, I got so excited about how soft my skin was after just one use – imagine how it will feel when I have been using them for a few weeks! And at the ridiculously affordable prices they really can be used as every day products. Going back to the packaging, the fun colours and quirky design makes me want to leave them out for all to see – maybe one day they will release larger sizes for anyone who is as obsessed as I am! They also have a dry body scrub (for those who can manage to exfoliate properly!) along with bath cubes and bombs, body butters and even lip plumpers. One product I missed when I bought these though is their Island Crush Body Spray – I didn’t see this at the time and think over the top of these products it would be incredible.
But with just these 3 I am SO impressed. And finally, that scent. It’s just a tropical heaven that lasts SO long, it just makes me happy!

Dirty Works – Well Done! I am in love!

LUSH Rose Jam Body Spray Review

Lush Rose Jam products in general are pretty mesmerizing to me. The scent is like something I haven’t smelt before, and I don’t think anyone would be able to put it into words – it just wouldn’t do it justice. Their Rose Jam Shower Gel and Bath Bomb have been a favourite of mine for a long long time, and recently I discovered Jason And The Argon Oil Shampoo Bar which also has the same scent! So as you can imagine when I found out they had released a Rose Jam fragrance I couldn’t quite contain myself. A Rose Jam Body Spray is absolute genius!

 

LUSH Claims:
Blooms of fresh rose and succulent geranium combine to create this rich, romantic delight. Jam-packed with indulgence, every spritz exudes sophistication. Moreish rose oil from petals picked in Senir, Turkey, blossom on your skin while a touch of lemon cleanses the palate. Allow this rich, floral aroma to adorn your skin in soft, sweet perfume.

As their description says, this really is an unusual and beautiful scent. The packaging is not in a typical perfume or body spray style, but as we all know nothing is particularly typical when it comes to Lush. And although it is shaped much like a cleaning spray bottle, it fits perfectly with the Lush Cosmetics style and I love it.
Price wise it isn’t particularly cheap, but then again it is also HUGE. One downside is that there is only one size, and while I am pretty obsessed with it and would still buy the larger size anyway given the choice a smaller option that is more easily transportable would be bang on.

Lush Cosmetics is a brand that I fall in love with every time I try out a new product, and bringing out my favourite scent in a body spray form has literally made me so happy! A rose jam body lotion would top it all off nicely please! Imagine it  – a rose jam bath bomb and shower gel, the matching shampoo bar, then finishing the whole thing off with a hefty spritz of this! Sheer happiness in a bottle!
