Review: Beauty Edition: MakeUp Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer

Afternoon darlings, hope you’re all good, if not, I hope whatever you are going through gets better, and I’m here if you need to talk… anyways, I bought these concealers last month after watching a whole bunch of Youtube videos saying how great it is, especially in comparison to Tarte’s “Shape Tape” concealer.

This is what MUR said about these concealers: “The concealer for everyone. 18 shades ranging from fair to deep, in cool, neutral and warm undertones. Lightweight yet full coverage concealer to cover blemishes, even skin tone and counteract dark circles, with a matte finish that won’t setting or accentuate fine lines and pores.

I was already impressed by how many shades this concealer came in, it’s refreshing to see a brand that instantly makes itself accessible to a vast majority of skin shades and undertones off the bat and not wait to gauge popularity before expansion. I purchased my shades online because my local Superdrug stores don’t have enough shelf space to stock all 18 shades, which is completely fair enough so there’s absolutely no issue there… but yes, I bought shades C12 and C13 and I’m actually going to buy a darker shade to use as a contour because I love these concealers…. I think I’m talking too much… onto the pics

And here are my struggle swatches

Thoughts on:

Packaging:  I think the packaging is adorable and it’s cute and lightweight; not much more to be said on that.

Formula: I don’t like feeling like I’m wearing makeup, which is a big reason why I don’t wear foundation, that and laziness, let’s say it’s 60/40. Ok that’s a lie, 20/80 but whatever. I don’t like heavy formulas and this isn’t.  Really light, smooth, with a nice matte finish which I didn’t get with my old Benefit concealer which was super shiny. It blends well and doesn’t go into the creases too much either  which is great

Price: Well it’s £4 ($6 I think) which is AHHMAAAZZZING!!  I’m the cheapest person I know so this price point brought me so much joy…it’s so worth it also

Wearability: It’s long lasting, I’ve worn this on nights out and it hasn’t really budged, need to go over it and re-blend when it goes into the creases after some intense dancing/sweating but apart from that, it fits the bill.

So yeh, essay over, in conclusion this is a great product, not just for the price but overall..hope to see more amazing products like this from MUR, going to check out their highlighters next 🙂

Here’s a before, during, and after of a makeup look I tried out using this concealer both under my eyes, and as a lip colour.

Btw, just took my hoodie off in the last pics, it’s the same day, I just took so long faffing around that it got dark, hence the rubbish lighting.

Anyone else bought these concealers?? Did you like them?

Review-Movie Edition: The Greatest Showman

Let me start by saying this. I’m an action girl at heart. My favourite genre has pretty much always been action and I’ve spent years obsessing over all things Marvel and DC so when I first heard about this musical, I wasn’t that interested. That is, until I saw Zendaya in a pink wig.

So I went to watch this with my friend the other day and here’s my honest thoughts….

I love this film. Absolutely love everything about it.

The acting on every part was absolutely perfect. Not too much, not too little, just enough for you to feel something for every character, and to feel invested in this narrative. Hugh Jackman is a man of many talents and yet again he proved that to be right. His relationship with onscreen love Michelle Williams was believable and real. Their relationship was liken to that of a fairytale but after the “happy ever after”, where sh*t gets real and the cracks start to form. Seeing them go through their hurdles and how they had to find each other again was beautiful.

The overall casting was also great, I fell in love, (well, deep like, let’s not go too far) with all the characters. Especially the little girls, whoever cast them did a good job because they’re both adorable and goofy at the same time.

The ensemble pieces were great, amazing vocals from all the cast, and the choreography…oh darling, just watch it and you’ll see. The visuals were breathtaking, shot after shot stunned and amazed me and I’m trying to think of a flaw in this movie but I really can’t. Not all reviews will be like this don’t you worry, I’m still yet to review “Mother!”

I have never cried throughout an entire film before. NEVER. But for this film, from about 5 minutes in it was like the taps were turned on and then broken. I was in bits throughout.

This movie has made the list of my top 20 favourite films of all time (that might only last a week, time will tell).Not just because it made me cry throughout, that isn’t necessarily the sign of a great film no. It’s on the list not only because it made me feel, but more importantly. It made me believe in myself.

I’ll leave you guys with my favourite song from this movie. I still can’t listen to it without welling up.
