Primark Makeup Sponge for 70p?!

Oh hey y’all

How goeth it?

Agesssss ago I wanted a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge but I was umming and arring and so my friend suggested buying a Primark one in the meantime.

  

  
I haven’t shopped in Primark for ages but, as always, money is tight and when my friend said their sponges were 70p, I couldn’t resist.

  
 I feel that this sponge is more focused on the shape of a Beauty Blender and it’s quite a sturdy, thick sponge. It felt that it could do some serious blendage.

When I started to use it, I was really impressed. It make the foundation blend seamlessly and everything looked flawless. 

HOWEVER, for some reason, when I used it the second time, it didn’t look great. It started to take off some of my makeup and I couldn’t understand what was happening.

  
A good few days later, it was pointed out to me that I needed to actually wet the sponge. Yes, I was embarrassed and yes, it did make sense.

Now, I actually haven’t tried it since but now it’s all cleaned and washed I am looking forward to doing so! 

I now also have a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge in my makeup bag which is fabulous (blog post on that coming soon) but I think for 70p you cannot go wrong with this sponge!

Has anyone else purchased one of these? Did you forget to wet it too?!

Revolution Makeup Radiance Highlighter Palette!

Morning morning morning!

So I haven’t quite been posting everyday sorry guys, it’s been a mad week.

How are you all though?!

I wanted to share my experience with Makeup Revolution’s Radiance Highlighter palette today.

I bought this a while ago because I wanted a really nice highlighter but, as per usual, I didn’t have a lot of money to spare so I did a little bit of research. In the end, I decided that Makeup Revolution’s palettes seemed affordable and gave a lovely look.

 

I chose their Radiance Highlighter palette which was only £8. I felt that this palette gave a really nice and generous selection and I was keen to try it!

It doesn’t exactly tell you how to apply it but then again, I’ve actually used this palette as a blusher aswell.

At the minute my blushers have been a bit too harsh for me- it’s prompted the bf to say something so you know it’s bad! I have a very pale complexion but I also have quite rosy cheeks and felt this shades would make me glow and not like I was embarrassed like before *cringe*.

  
 

I tend to use the bottom colour as a blusher or the top one as these are the darkest, adding the middle to the top of my cheekbones. 

They give a lovely sheen and shimmer and are easily buildable. I also put it on before my powder so that if I have gone a little too far I needn’t panic!

 

The colours are lovely and rich and I think they’re perfect for all year round. Again, they don’t limit you to a day or night look and to be honest, you aren’t reduced to using just one or two lipsticks with them.
  

I absolutely love this palette and, for £6, it’s such a bargain, it’s definitely worth it!

Has anyone got this palette? What do you think? Would you buy this?
