Birchbox 3 Months On

Image
Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

Hidden Gems: Revolution Concealer



It's that time of the week again where I bring another hidden gem. I've planned these for the next couple of weeks another is a mix to come. I wanted to bring you food, clothing, makeup the whole shebang. This week it's a makeup gem, there's a few makeup and beauty bits lined up so if that's your thing then let's get cracking. 

If you live in the world of makeup particularly drugstore you would've seen the release of the Makeup Revolution Define and Conceal Concealers £4 these daring things are meant to set out the makeup world by storm. Providing full coverage and an amazing base for your face. I took the plunge a couple months back and stopped wearing foundation for 30 days. It's very rare now that I wear foundation as I managed to find a lot of full coverage concealers that did the job pretty great. At just £4 I had to give this a try and give you all the rundown. 

Now, the shade range is incredible the lovely Makeup Revolution team tried to vary the shades as much as possible. I was stuck in-between c3 and c5 so I got C5 and it's a good shade for when I'm tanned. As I am after a glow at the moment this colour matches me great. 

On first glance you can see this gorgeous packaging, the rose gold and doe foot applicator are a dream pair. I did notice as with a lot of makeup revolution a dupe kind of feeling. It reminds me a lot of the Tarte Shape Tape. Especially because the applicator is quite thick it really allows you to get a lot of product on your face at once. 

I use this in the usual places and blend in using a beauty sponge. It sinks into the skin nicely and gives a really flawless look. I'll say this now this is in no way a light concealer. Don't get this is you want a barely there kind of look. This packs a punch and really works to dull away those imperfections. Once it's on it stays there all day, it does start to get a little weary after a long day. But this managed to endure crying and a lot of upset in one day and still look very good so I give this concealer a real good pat on the back. 

Will I be using this again? Of course! it's been added into my daily routine and it's replaced my well loved Stila concealer. So expect to hear me going on about this all over again. You can see more photos of it on over on my Instagram. I'm going to be creating more looks over on there soon so go over now. 

Let me know down below what some of your favourite concealers are and what Makeup Revolution products are we loving at the moment?

Until next time, Chloe!
