Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray Review

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray Review

 

For today’s instalment in the Drugstore Setting Spray Review Series, I will be talking about the Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray. Makeup Revolution is a popular drugstore brand with budget friendly prices: there was no way I could do this challenge without picking up their setting spray!

The Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray to keep your makeup in place all day and protect against heat & humidity whilst helping your makeup to last 8 hours

Experience

I really like this setting spray. It sprays in a fine mist and doesn’t leave white spots on the face. It doesn’t say what sort of finish it gives but I have found it to be a natural satin/matte finish which I actually like (huge surprise as I prefer dewy/glowy finishes). It doesn’t dry out my face or make my skin look dry either. I have really tested out this spray’s claims as I have used it when I have been running errands in the past week. It helped my makeup stayed put and held up against heat. I’m not a huge fan of the scent- slightly of chemicals but it works so I can accept that lol

I have a slight oily T zone and I found the spray helped to extend the time I would need to blot which I really liked. I haven’t experienced any irritation with the product. They say you can use this on eye makeup as well but I haven’t tested that out yet.

Verdict

A good setting at a very good price!  The Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Fixing Spray will be the perfect addition to your makeup collection! For very oily skin types, they have an oil controlling formula as well.

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray is £5 at Tam Beauty

I will reveal which setting spray is next on Instagram, be sure to follow me to find out!

Motions Natural Textures

Hey my loves!

We have another product collection! We are talking about Motions for natural textures product collection! Yes Motions have a collection for natural hair now and I am here as always to give you the full product collection, plus reviews plus where to purchase in the UK. Let’s get to it

motions

The full collection:

  1. Straight Finish cleanser
  2. Moisturising cleanser
  3. Straight finish leave in conditioner
  4. Smoothing conditioner
  5. Deep conditioning mask
  6. Straight finish sealer
  7. Define my curls creme
  8. Hydrate my curls pudding
  9. Radiating hair gloss

I think their website needs updating, because they also have a pre wash detangling butter that’s not showing up on their website. I think this product is quite new. I have used 3 products from this line: the pre wash detangling butter, the deep conditioning mask and the hydrate my curls pudding. I have reviews for them, check them out below

Pre-wash detangling butter>> http://wp.me/p1uQOd-t7

Deep conditioning mask>> http://wp.me/p1uQOd-tc

IMG_20150510_140656

The hydrate my curls pudding I have used it and it worked well to define my braid out. So now let’s talk reviews, is it worth it?

 

 

 

From my experience with their products, I say they are good however the size is a big let-down. The prewash detangling butters only lasted me two washes, one for each so if you did a cost analysis lol, it would work out cheaper to get a regular conditioner which will be bigger and last longer anyway. The same goes for the deep conditioning mask.

That’s all for the motions natural textures line. Let me know if you use any of these products and how they are working out for you! Here in the UK you can get the some of the products from amazon or paks > http://www.pakcosmetics.com/brand/motions/motions I have also seen they sell this in some BSS, ACE definitely has it. For more info on this line, please visit their website > http://www.motionshair.com/

If you love online shopping like me, you would love TopCashBack! This website offers you cash back on loads of different websites! It may be a few coins but imagine if they all stack up! it’s totally legit, don’t worry, check reviews 1st if you would like! Here’s a referral link below!

DARK AND LOVELY MOISTURE L.O.C

2015DarkandLovely2

Hey guys! Another product collection! This time we are headed to Dark and lovely for the next 3 posts to look at their natural hair products collections. To my knowledge they have 3 different collections for natural hair:

Au Naturale moisture L.O.C (Today’s post)

Au Naturale anti shrinkage

Au Naturale anti breakage

So we will be looking at them individually over the next couple of posts.

The moisture L.O.C (liquid, oil, cream) collection was inspired by the L.O.C method that naturals use to moisturise their hair. If you struggle with this method, wondering what products to use, then this collection was designed to take out that guesswork! They say the line was created to work together to deliver up to 7 days of long lasting moisture (hmm, do I see a challenge coming on?). Great ingredient list including coconut oil and moringa oil.

The full collection is as follows

Sulfate free shampoil (I featured this in my cleansing series)

Deep conditioning delight

Super quench leave in spray

Soak it up cocktail

Lock it in sealing cream

You know what guys, I am going to contact them to see if they can provide the products for my challenge ( I will let you know if they responded or ignored) , if not I will purchase them myself and let you guys know the outcome! Challenge accepted! The full range can be bought online from British Curlies >> https://store-h17m3tq1.mybigcommerce.com/dark-and-lovely-au-naturale/ , join in the challenge #7daymoisturechallenge and let’s see if it lives up to its name. For more information on their products, please visit their website >> http://www.softsheen-carson.com/dark-and-lovely/au-naturale-moisture-l-o-c/c/pl

That’s all folks! Let’s continue with the au Naturale anti shrinkage collection

Until then

Love

Sarah
