All three of these are things I've wanted since I knew they were released, so when there was a 3 for 2 on at Superdrug it seemed like a very good time to take advantage! Both the Freedom Makeup 'Eyebrow Pomade' and the Makeup Revolution 'Ultra Metals' brushes have been out for a while, now, so it'd be great to know if any of you have tried them, and what you think ?
As always the packaging from Freedom Makeup is so good, especially when you consider the bargain price - The Eyebrow Pomade is only £5! You may be used to bargain brands having a limited shade range but this comes in an impressive 11 shades which should, easily, cover most people's colouring.
I wasn't sure which shade to get, as there is just so many! Because I was ordering from Superdrug there wasn't the full colour range available, if I'd been ordering direct from Freedom Makeup I may've got the the 'Chocolate' shade, but due to what I could get I picked 'Medium Brown'. When I first opened it I wasn't sure if it was going to be dark enough but, actually, once applied I've found that this works really quite well on my brows. I'm planning on doing a before and after post on this some time (but at the moment I'm battling very dry skin which is why it's not happened yet).
The Ultra Metals brushes from Makeup Revolution were exciting for so so many reasons. Firstly, resisting those beautiful rose gold handles would've been really hard work, and secondly the quality is stunning (along with many other things)
I wasn't sure which to get from the range, I do have quite a lot of brushes already, but the 'Sculpt Blush Brush' and the 'Pointed Crease Eyeshadow brush' really stood out to me and blush and eye brushes are, probably, my most used.
These both lived up to my hopes, the bristles are just so beautifully soft! I've not used them a lot yet, but I've given them both a quick go - They're both quite firm brushes, so it'll take a little bit of getting used to the blush brush (I usually use huge fluffy brushes), but it feels fantastic on the skin and applies product really nicely. The eye brush is lovely for applying to the crease, but then I do need a softer, blending brush to follow up with.
The Ultra Metals collection are more expensive than other brushes from Makeup Revolution, but when you consider the quality, you can understand why. The blush brush is £8.99 and the crease brush is £5.99 which means, with the brow pomade on 3 for 2, I got quite a good bargain.
I expect for these to show up in future posts, and I'm really looking forward to using them some more. Are there any more things from Makeup Revolution or Freedom Makeup that you'd recommend? I'm considering trying out some of the Freedom Makeup skin care once my skin is happier.
