Today I am going to be talking about a primer that I have fell in love with and it's only £3.50.
Yeah, you read that right! £3.50!!
Essence have recently brought out a new primer called You Better Work. It is pore smoothing, refreshing, has a SPF 20 and is sweat proof. This has been made for when you're out, going the gym and I'm going to use it when I go to Orlando later this year because I want to wear make up in the parks but, I know I'll sweat it off and now finally! I have a primer that will help that.
I have been trying this out all week and I can honestly say, I love it. I have dry skin so, I'm always looking for a primer that will not make my skin look flaky with foundation on. This applied really nicely and it felt really refreshing. You only need a little bit as a little goes a long way. I let it settle on my face for a few minutes so it can soak in and it died down my redness and just felt really nice on the skin.
The test was if it lasted. I was in work all day and I work in retail so, I'm always running around and getting a sweat on. After 9 hours my make up still looked good. Nothing had shifted, it hadn't go dewy (which isn't bad, I love a good dewy look).
If you're looking for a new primer but, you don't want to pay too much as well know there are some crazy expensive primers out there, I can't recommend this enough! I can't wait to stock up on this as I've been using it a lot and it really goes nicely with my everyday make up.
This is the look I did the other day and just look how flawlessly my make up went on over it!

If you've heard the news Make up Revolution is now just Revolution and have released some new products. Not just 1 or 2 new products. They have released A WHOLE lot of new products so, when they where finally online on Superdrug I order a few pieces to test them out.
The things I picked up -
Revolution Brow Tint Dark Brown - £5
Revolution Flawless Foils Unicorn Foil - £5

I heart Revolution Mystical Mermaid's Lipstick Beach Babe - £4

Revolution Pro Eyeshadow Refills Pack Glisten Here - £6
Revolution Pro Correcting Face Primer Anti Redness - £7
Revolution Pro Large Empty Palette (not pictured) - £10
So, everything was £10 and under. How can you be mad at that? Revolution is possibly my favourite drugstore brand and I was so excited to grab some of their new products.
(I didn't use all of these on this look but, I will have more reviews up soon on them)
To start the look I tried the brow tinting. I am terrified of tinting my brows just because I keep thinking it will pull out the hairs but, I left it on for about half an hour (you can leave it on for up to two hours) It is really easy to apply and take off and left my eyebrows looking great. I have some parts in my eyebrows where they have been waxed and the hair has just never grown back so, I will be using this again as it give my eyebrow shape and look without me having to apply product. To fill them in more I used the brow pomade as I was going out that night.
I used the primer and I chose the anti redness one as my face tends to get red and it really died it down and felt really nice on the skin.
I finally used the foundation stick and I am in love. I have never used a foundation stick but, WOW! It left my skin looking flawless. I only used a few swipes and them blended it in with my beauty blender and I just adore the finish of it. For my eyes and contour I used my profusion Pro Palette (I have a post on this amazing palette down below) I then used the Unicorn foil on my eyes and LOOK AT THAT GLOW! So easy to apply and I just adore the look it gave to my eyes. I then used the 4K Gold highlighter palette and I am in love. It comes with 4 shades and the pigmentation is unreal. I was ready to cover my body in it.
Finally I used the Matte Lip in the shade Illusion and wow. It was creamy, felt weightless, lasted for ages and the colour is just gorgeous.
I cannot wait to order more of their new products and fill up my empty palette with the singles as the glitter shadows when I swatched are just crazy good.
