Tam Beauty Haul from Freedom Makeup and Makeup Revolution
Every few months I like to treat myself to a Makeup Revolution haul, mostly because I don’t think I have enough make-up and I feel it’s my moral responsibility to address this…Being the queen of self-enabling, I saw that all the Tam Beauty brands had merged together on one site – making it a lot easier to order your favourites across the Tam Beauty brands such as Makeup Revolution and Freedom – so I thought I should buy a few bits to make for a more interesting post…I need very little encouragement. Seriously.
There are some fantastic new launches from both MUR and Freedom, the first of which has to be the Ultra Eye Contour in Light and Shade, which is widely perceived as a good dupe for the Kat Von D Shade + Light palette. For me, personally, I can’t get enough of contour shades for eyes as I love the look it creates, so as soon as I saw this on Instagram (Instagram is the devil – the amount of products I’ve bought after seeing them on Instagram is just horrifying) I knew it had to be mine. Here it is – link – for £8. I also decided to go for the Freedom Makeup Pro Conceal Palette as I’ve been knackered lately and I needed something peachy and creamy to hide the blue under my eyes, so I figured this would be a fiver well spent here – link.
The next palette is the almost perfect Freedom Makeup Pro HD Brow Palette in Fair Medium, which has a fantastic collection of 12 (!!) brow shades that’ll allow you to create a completely bespoke colour, so for those who struggle to get the colour just right, here’s the palette for you. I also love the fact that most shades run quite cool, whereas you’d normally expect a palette like this to have a lot of warmer shades which seems to be the norm for fairer hair types – for some reason, a lot of brands still think fairer colourings run warm and even red, which is definitely not the case. In this palette you also get a collection of stencils, a brush, a highlighter and a wax. The wax is a strange one as it’s a kind of flesh colour, so if you try and use it to set brows, it’ll lighten the overall finish. The weird wax and the fact that this set is missing a brush for brushing brows (tongue twister, right there) is the only reason this palette isn’t completely perfect, but it really isn’t far off, especially for a tenner here – link.
Finally I bulked out my order with a couple of double-ended pens, starting with the Makeup Revolution Dual Ultra Brow Arch & Shape in Fair, which I had a while ago and it’s a fantastic dupe for the Soap and Glory one – I’d really recommend it to anyone who likes tidy brows but doesn’t have the time to faff about with various bits and bobs to get them ready. It’s a ridiculously good bargain at £3.50 here – link. The Makeup Revolution Double Flick Eyeliner was the last thing I went for as I’ve been wanting to try a MUR eyeliner for a while and I figured this was my chance, plus it meant my order value went over the minimum for free postage, so…It’s £3.50 here – link.
