Makeup Revolution’s NEW Foundation Stick Review

Hello Lovelies,

Welcome back to my blog, It has been a little while since we’ve spoken but non the less, im here again haha. Todays post is something a little different but is in very high demand right now! If your interested, ive also filmed a video which is going live on Monday on my youtube channel ‘chelseamarieabery’ the video is a little more in-depth as i try the foundation on and check back in to see how long its last etc.

Anywayyyyyy Lets get on with the post!

So i follow Makeup Revolution on Instagram and on their story they announced that they where bringing out a foundation stick in 17 shades which cost £5! Yes, thats right, £5!! At the moment you can only purchase this foundation online, and i think (THINK) the foundation is available to pick up in stores by late March 2018.

Now im a great lover of Makeup Revolution so I was so grateful for them bring out a foundation. I immediately searched for reviews across the internet and youtube and came across Sophiedoesnails Video on the product. (Sophiedoesnails does work along side with Makeup Revolution however her review was extremely honest and she did include some negatives).  She couldn’t rave more about the product and she explained as she has oily skin she had to do one touch up of powder throughout the day but that was all – so if you have oily skin thats a factor you may want to keep in mind but as the product is only £5 you wouldn’t be wasting to much money at all.


Here is the product. As ive said before, the product costs £5 and you do get a good amount of product for the price, I feel it will last me a long time but depending on how much you’d comfortably use will depend on how long it will last. (My video shows the amount of product inside if your interested). The packaging is super cute and handbag size which is another bonus! There are 17 shades available which covers everyones shade – another pro! So my initial thoughts were rather great – we were off to a great start.

The product is simple, remove the lid, and twist the rose gold section to reveal more product. A simple but glamourise design! As you can see, my shade is extremely pale (F1) – perfect for me!

Applying this was beautiful. I used my Max Factor All Day Primer as my base, The applied the foundation stick. I drew lines across my cheeks, forehead and chin. To ben i used my Real techniques Beauty Blender after dampening it. I had to dab rather firmly but none the less, the foundation blended seamlessly which was the part i was most concerned about so i was rather impressed! The coverage is medium to full and is buildable. It covers imperfections and red patches which is ideal for me. I then powdered with my Mac Studio Fix Powder like normal. And the foundation sat perfectly.

I then went on my normal day routine, College 9am to 2pm (i know i have a great timetable!) It was a windy day but no rain and then a hospital visit for a blood test where i was nervous! Then returning home to Finnish filming my video (5pm). The foundation had lasted all day and still looked flawless! i was so impressed! 5 out of 5 stars for me!

Information you may need to know; I have extremely dry skin and and use Nivea Dry Skin moisturiser. I have a pale complexion.

As you can tell i cant get enough of this incredible foundation, Makeup Revolution has succeeded!

I hope you have enjoyed this review! if you have tested this product yourself please tell me about your experience below. Ive read many reviews and I’ve only seen one negative review so far!

Many thanks, Chelseamarieabery x




A Little Makeup Haul

Hello Lovelies!

Welcome back to my blog, I’m enjoying photography and writing a lot more at the moment over and above YouTube, that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy YouTube it just means I’m enjoying writing more right now.

So a few weeks ago, my Nan gave me a Marks and Spencer’s box (which if I’m honest I thought was going to be a underwear set) but to my surprise, the box was filled with little makeup samples – well some where samples but others were full sized makeup products. I thought it would be exiting to create a blog post on as it brightened my day!

I will just clarify that my Nan didn’t spend all of this money on me, She brought herself a M&S advent calendar for Christmas, and the products I where given where the products she didn’t want and wouldn’t use. This doesn’t change the fact that I’m overly grateful for her giving me all of these products, I couldn’t thank her enough.

So, here we go!

So this is the little box which was sitting on my chest of draws and you can probably guess that I was delighted. When I opened it I was even more exited, I picked up a few items to read what they where and once I decided on doing the blog post, I researched the items, to give you guys an insight so you guys could also know what was in this little box of glory!

Section One (makeup)!

Lets start off with… Mascara

The one in the grey tube; Eyeko London Mascara. This is designed to last for hours, its water resistant and aims to curl your lashes with extra volume. After trying this mascara, I can say it is water resistant and it does indeed last for hours!

The one in the black tube; Diego Dalla Palma Mascara; This is designed to boost lashes and with its delicately designed wand, it does just that.

Lets now move onto Primer..

As you can see, These are in face sample sizes which are going to be perfect for hand bags!

The blue one; Autograph Hydrating Confidence Primer. It extends the wear of foundation, is smooth and has an invisible finish which also hydrates the skin.

The two nude tubes; Pur Correcting Primer. Illuminates and glows, (gluten free) and vegan friendly!

Now for a eye brightening serum…


this Max Factor product stuck out to me in the box as its a familiar and well loved product, especially for the late nights and early mornings.

The Max Factor Eye Luminizer; brightens the under eyes.

And next is lips….

These two where an amazing surprise! Infract I couldn’t wait, I had to try them on straight away.

Stila (the bottom in the Left image and bottom of the two images on the right); Stay all day liquid lipstick in PERLA which is a really nice, nude, pinky lip colour.

Pixi (the top in the image on the left and the top image out of both images on the left); Lip Lift max in the shade HONEY SHEEN which is a clear gloss. Perfect for your favourite matt lips when you want them to have a little shine.

And the last beauty product.. Eyes

Another familiar name!

No.7 Bold Eye Shadow Palate (mini); Now these shades include a deep and light blue, a dark grey, a white, crème and stone shade. With a small mirror and tiny eye shadow brush. Perfect for traveling Right?!

Now lets move onto the skin care section…

This section includes nails, balms and crèmes.. So lets begin with balms..

So here we have two balms. Ill discuss The top two images first and then move onto the bottom two images.

The top two images; Ted Baker Lip Balm. This is in vanilla and to my surprise, doesn’t smell of anything! none the less it feels amazing and smooth!

The bottom two images; EH Moringa Clensing Balm. This is a multi use balm, worth a lot of money! This product has a lot of uses including, cleanses and moisturises skin, it works as a mask if left for about 10 minutes and removes makeup effortlessly.

Two Body Lotions..

The top left image; Amelioiate transforming Body Lotion. This is meant to remove surface dead skin and stimulate the renewal of healthy skin cells, which is apparently clinically proven!

The bottom left image; Laboratories Filorga Paris. Meso – Mask, this illuminates and smooth’s and radiances the skin after being left on for 15 to 30 minutes.

And last of all, Nail Varnishes…

As you cam see, there all from No.7, The two fall sized ones, Pink – OYSTER and Gold – HOT OR TROT are both amazing colours, my favourite has to be the pink one! And the two sample sized ones, Purple – FOXGLOVE and Red – DEVILS DELIGHT are also two amazing colours!

You can find all of the products above on the FEELUNIQUE website!

So that is all of the products inside the box, I am overly grateful to my Nanna for giving me these product and I’m so exited for you guys to read all about them! I hope you have enjoyed this post! Ill see you all very soon.

Much love, Chelseamarieabery x

November Faves!

hey Lovelies,

welcome back to my blog page, I hope you have all had a great week! Todays post is going to be a rather long one I think so I’m not going to babble on and waste time, lets get started!

My first two fave…

So this month ive needed these two! now firstly on the left, is some hand crème which trust me ive needed this month, my hands are so so so dry, its actually horrid! So yh ive definitely needed this and then the one on the right is hand sanitiser, which I personaly need because I HATE germs! so I wash my hands, then sanatise them and then moisterise them… I do this everytime I go to the tilet, before I eat and after I eat… is that bad?? oh well!

So my next fave is…

NYX’s Intense Butter Gloss in the shade 06. I promise you this is the perfect autumn deep nude lip! its my go to right now and the texture of it is insane, its so moisterising and not to sticky. I cant get enough of this lippie!


The next fave of this month is…

This adorable little book ‘The little book of Big Hopes’ by Helen Exley and the page shown is my favourite! Its just a real cute book which was gifted to me from my mother and its so positive and sweet and I love it!


My next and last fave is…

Here is the Makeup Revolution’s ‘Stripped and Bare’ palette and the real techniques shadow brush is pointing out my fave shades, which as you can tell are the most basic ones. I just put this on my base and though my crease in the day and then I may add a sparkle on the lid for a night time look… if I’m in the mood LOL.

But I love this pallet and I enjoy it most at this time of year!

I hope you have enjoyed this post,
