Revolution Beauty Reloaded Newtrals 2 Eyeshadow Palette

    Revolution Beauty Reloaded Newtrals 2 Eyeshadow Palette | Essential Twenty

    We all know that warm shadows are in right now, and I’m a really big fan of them. I use the Urban Decay Naked Heat a lot (although the Petite Heat hasn’t enticed me as much as I thought it would), and definitely reach for warm shadows more often than cooler tones. When I made a few Revolution purchases last month, I spotted the Revolution Reloaded Newtrals 2 Palette and knew it had to be mine. I started testing it out straight away, and have been loving playing about with this this month.

    Makeup Revolution Haul, Spring 2018

    Makeup Revolution Haul, Spring 2018 | Essential Twenty

    In March I spent a lot of money on new beauty goodies and have given up buying anything beauty related in April. But I have a lot to discuss before I even need to think about buying anything, and that includes a little bit of a Makeup Revolution Haul. Funnily enough this doesn’t include every single Makeup Revolution product I bought in March 2018, and that’s mainly because this post was due to go live about three weeks ago and then Superdrug started their 3 for 2 across all makeup offer and I bought some more. Not even sorry. So anyway, this post won’t include those last few bits but I’ll get around to talking about them at a later date.

    Makeup Rehab | Makeup Expiration

    Makeup Rehab: Makeup Expiration | Essential Twenty

    We all know beauty products aren’t going to last forever, even if we can’t admit it to ourselves. It can lose its quality for one, and when there are so many brilliant products out there – is it really worth keeping sub-par products? But they also expire. I obviously knew that makeup had to expire at some point in its life, but it didn’t mean I’d ever pay attention to it. In fact, I didn’t even know where to find out when it expired. Now I’m a little more savvy to what the little symbols on the back of products mean, and I also know that I should be a little more wary of the makeup expiration dates.

    An Evening With Jason Robert Brown

    I’ve been through stages of my life where I’ve been obsessed with theatre. The first wave came when I was 14, and I’m in a big place with it right now. But there was another phase when I was just finishing my A Levels. We’re talking circa 2013, and that’s when I really listened to the genius of Jason Robert Brown for the first time.
