For me Thursday is the new Friday and this week was no exception. On 10th March I attended Make Up Revolutions 2nd birthday party, and it was AMAZING!
I’ve been a massive fan of the brand since the beginning and with new products launching almost weekly what’s not to love? They’re have great products starting from £1 (yes I said £1) and they’re giving premium brands a run for their money with their gorgeous palettes, packaging, variety in products and with a cult following and heaps of involvement within the blogging community, it’s difficult to ignore the successes of such a wonderful brand.
London was the city and Cafe de Paris was our backdrop for the party. We were given the VIP treatment from the outset, photographers, videographers, welcome drinks, we knew we were in for a good time.
We kicked off with an afternoon tea themed drop in session, it was a great opportunity to meet the the make up revolution family and all the brands (Freedom, colourless, I ♡ Make Up)
The tables were filled with all our favourite products across the brands, it was also good to see a few products which I’ve had my eye on and obviously they didn’t disappoint, so of course I’ll be shopping this weekend!
So whilst drooling at all the make up we also got to hear about some future products launching this year which was very exciting. The good news is I can share deets with you all – Are you ready?
Make Up Revolution have teamed up with British Beauty Blogger to create “The Fortune Favours The Bold” Palette presented in a gorgeous brushed gold tin. We weren’t given an official launch date but it will be later on this month.
The week commencing March 21st will see the launch of the newest addition to the I ♡ Chocolate range “Chocolate Vice” luxurious golds and rich reds and pinks galore perfect to help get you ready for summer.
We also got to see a new hair care range which were so cleverly packaged as milk cartons and smoothie drinks which looked fab. The main focus was taming and smoothing hair which I’m looking forward to trying out as a sister blessed with curly hair, no one wants to see my “woke up like this” look.
There was also a hair colour range which looked great and will appeal to many with baby pinks, blues and turquoise still going strong. The hair range will be launching in June 2016 so just in time for festival season.
Superdrug also had products from their B. range out on display, which included Micellar water and a micellar oil which I’ve not yet tried. They also had body butters and scrubs which all looked really nice. But what really caught our eye were these emojji lip balms, the cuteness of these little pots were just too much!
After checking out all the brands and products we had time to ourselves to connect with other bloggers, talk to the brands and grab a drink, I attended the event with fellow blogger Flo of Love From, Florence Grace who is always great company. We discovered the GIF creating station hosted by GIFGIF and well you’ll see the evidence of our handy work…
As the evening started to set in, we were spoilt with cocktails and canapés(which were aptly named after some of the palettes) finally the big screen came down and Adam Minto, founder and CEO of Make Up Revolution took to the stage. Using his charm and wit Adam delivered a heart-warming speech sharing is pride and passion for the company, giving thanks for the support from global partners to Superdrug and of course the blogger/social network.
Adam describes Revolution as disruptive, exciting, most of all affordable. As a natural born rebel, I’m always for creating a little chaos, so the idea these guys creating a little havoc within the world of cosmetics just makes me love them even more.
Make up should not be elitist. Should not be based on your ability or you willingness to pay more!
Adam Minto – CEO Make Up Revolution
Writer and Vlogger Daisie Smith who works closely with TAM Beauty, then took to the stage to announce the amazing competition #IAMFREEDOM competition which launches in April and set to be the biggest beauty competition of the year! 30 individuals will compete through 3 challenges to earn a place at the live final which will be held in September. Four runners up will win £1000 whilst the one lucky winner of first place will win £10000 (yep TEN THOUSAND!!) a years supply of Freedom products and a 1 year partnership with the brand.
As Adam was reiterating the details, Superdrug shouted off stage and announced that they would match all the prizes – OMG!!!
After that fantastic announcement I think everyone was truly ready to party, another surprise for us was a guest DJ who turned out to be none other Scott Mills, we managed to get a snap with him which was pretty cool! The tunes kept on coming, and for those who know me, I love to dance so there was no stopping me hehe
My night came to an end around 1130 and as a final thanks we were given a bag of goodies. Which was filled so much amazing stuff. Between Make Up Revolution and Superdrug their kindness and generosity was overwhelming, included were products from Make Up Revolution, Freedom and Superdrug.
I saved this one for last as I’d already had it on my lust list and almost picked it up last week. In our goodie bag also contained the Black Arts Pro Artist Pad by Freedom.
So there you have it lovelies, the drink, the music and the make up! I need to give a few shout outs to Flo and Julia for being the best company! Of course I can’t forget the girl gang I hung out with dancing all night like no ones watching, Kirstie, Orla, Tania, Leah, Hollee (and mum) and of course a massive thank you to Adam Minto and the TAM family for the invitation to help celebrate your success and for your hospitality and for the revolution! Keep on making noise lovelies….
Happy Birthday Make Up Revolution!
