Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours The Brave Palette

So this palette is a little bit old in the beauty blogging world and I have finally decided to write about it!

This palette is a collaboration between British Beauty Blogger and Makeup Revolution. The packaging is beautiful and the there is a selection of 30 different eye shadows. The packaging is lovely and stands out from all of the usual black packaging that we see makeup revolution use. The shadow pans are quite small but you still get a lot for how many shades are on offer here. 


This is pretty much the perfect palette it has everything you need from soft everyday colours to more adventurous shades and the perfect smokey eye shades. There's a great range of baked, matte and shimmer formulas. 


There are a few shades that are not quite as pigmented as I hoped. The peachy shade on the top row third along, is one of the most disappointing shades. There was no colour pigmentation and I had to work really hard to get it to work for me. 

Some of the green shades are less then impressive along with the lighter matte colours, all in all it was a little disheartening as they colours I would naturally gravitate towards were some of the worst performers in the palette!

Even with the own falls of a few shades in here I mostly think that this could be a great shadow palette for a beginner or someone new to makeup as it gives you a lot for your money that you can play around with.

Tatul - Tattoo Brightening System*

Tatul is a hand held tattoo brightening tool. When I was first contacted about Tatul, I honestly thought it was a bit of a gimmick and asked loads of questions about what it actually is. In its simplest form Tatul is a hand held device that exfoliates the top layer of dead skin at the same time as vacuuming it away.


Tatul comes with two exfoliating heads that attach to the machine, it really is as simple as switching it on and away you go. It takes minutes to exfoliate the skin and you use the supplied serum (basically vitamin E) to hydrate the skin afterwards. 

Before - 
 

After - 

 
You can see that this really helped to remove the dead skin cells and just made the tattoo appear brighter. This worked really well on my colour tattoos you can watch a video of me using Tatul here

I will say that I didnt like this at first, I didnt see much difference but now I know what speed setting and what attachment head works better for my skin I really do think I will continue to use this. 

I wouldnt reccomend using Taul too often as you dont want to constantly exfoliate your tatto and cause premature fading, however this is a safe way to brighten up your tattoo without the need to go back under a tattoo needle!!

Pommade Divine - 1 year on

So around this time last year I posted about the dramatic difference that using Pommade Divine had on my eczema in just two weeks.

I have now been using this miracle balm for a year and I can honestly say it is one beauty product I will not be without. While in the short term Pommade Divine really calmed down my eczema and soothed the skin with continued use I have seen real healing and long lasting results. 



Before 


After One Year

After one year use of this balm my skin is largely clear. There are small remains of eczema and some light scarring from scratching my skin raw but you would never tell how bad my skin once was. 

Pommade Divine contains a lot of natural ingredients that promote natural healing in the skin, the main moisturise properties come from Shea butter and lanolin (so this makes it unsuitable for vegans) then there are lots of natural anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients like cinnamon, benzoin and nutmeg. 

Because of the nature of the balm you will find a slight residue almost like a second skin layer when you apply this but it does soak in! If you find it doesn't sink in, use less of the balm next time you apply. You also may find this stings due to the anti-bacterial properties especially if your skin is open and sore but stay with it because the benefits are enormous! There is also a scent to the balm, it smells like Christmas candles because if the cinnamon but it is very subtle and natural, it is not an artificial perfumed smell. 

If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask! You can ask me on Twitter @kerri_jane for a quick reply!

MUA Single Eyeshadow - Champagne

When you become borderline highlighter obsessed and then your Mary Lou-Manizer breaks there is only one thing to do, break out what could possibly be one of the best cheap highlighters out there!


Ok so yes, this technically is an eyeshadow, but at £1 it really is a brilliant highlighter. The shade is just right and gives the best amount of subtle glow without being overly shimmery or glitter based. It's very subtle, which I love as I'm not into a heavy makeup look, but can easily be built up. 


I really love everything about this from the shade to how easy it is to blend. It's also very versatile you can use this as a highlighter but I also like to use this as my main eyeshadow with some winged liner and it looks great. 

Also MUA is a cruelty free brand so for all those against animal cruelty and try to shop brands that don't test on animals this is one you can use!
