MAKEUP REVOLUTION UNICORNS UNITE LIPSTICK COLLECTION: REVIEW, PHOTOS & SWATCHES

Makeup Revolution have released a new, enchanting and magical lipstick collection called Unicorns Unite. The collection consists of 5 lipsticks, two are bright while the other three are more on the dark side. Let's take a closer look at this collection from Makeup Revolution! :-)

The Unicorns Unite Lipstick Collection is colorful yet dark at the same time. The lipsticks are very easy to apply. They feel soft and smooth on the lips without being dry. I do recommend that you exfoliate your lips properly before the application, because a couple of the shades can cling to dry patches on the lips. You can probably tell what I mean by looking at the lip swatch photos.

The pigmentation is good, but some of the shades are a little sheer. They have a metallic finish so if that's not your thing, these might not be what you are looking for. I don't usually gravitate towards lipsticks with a metallic finish, just because I think that they can look a little too intense and crazy on their own. That's why I prefer to use them in the center of my lips to make my lips pop. I think it makes them more wearable and it also makes the lips look more fuller as well.

I have already mentioned this several times before, but I love that you can see the color of the lipsticks on top of the cap. They are so easy to store and organize and you don't have to open them up to see the color. I really like the shade names too, they are very creative and fun.

My favorite shades from this collection is Pink Myth and Legend. I also like Horn Of Magic as well, but I'm not sure if I would wear it outside the house to be completely honest with you. Magical is gorgoeus too, but I was a little disappointed with the pigmentation on this one, it was quite sheer compared to the rest of the shades and it looked very patchy and uneven on my lips. I think Magical would look beautiful paired with a lip liner in a similar shade. It would be such a gorgeous combination! :-)

Overall, I think that the Unicorns Unite Lipstick Collection from Makeup Revolution is a very fun collection. The colors are very pretty, some are quite unique as well. If you are into bold lipsticks, I think you are going to like this collection a lot. Some of the lipsticks are a little too bold for my taste, but I think it's healthy to step out of the comfort zone every now and again. Makeup is about being creative and having fun, so if a product doesn't work for you, you can just wash it off! :-)

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: WHAT'S IN YOUR DAILY MAKEUP BAG?

 Do you have any beauty products that you can't leave home without? I have a handful of products that I like to keep in my daily makeup bag, which I carry around with me in my handbag. I thought that I would share them with you in today's blog post, so let's get started! :-) 
♥ Bag from KMS California. 
 ♥ Maybelline New York Baby Lips in Mint Fresh, Hydrate, Peach Kiss, Pink Punch & Cherry Me. 

A good lip balm is a total must have for me. It's been a very cold winter in Norway, which is the reason why my lips have been so dry and sore. I have been enjoying the Baby Lips from Maybelline New York a lot. I like that they feel soft and smooth on the lips, without being sticky or greasy. These are the shades that I have in my collection. Two are clear, while the other three have a nice tint of color. My favorite is Hydrate and Cherry Me for a nice pop of color! :-)
 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15, (HERE). 

Another product that I like to keep in my daily makeup bag is concealer. My favorite concealer at the moment is the Pro Longwear Concealer from MAC Cosmetics. It's great for covering up those dark under eye circles, while making you look like you have had a solid 8 hours of sleep the night before. I have a lot of blue veins under my eyes and this concealer does a good job covering that up. I love that it's very lightweight, it doesn't feel heavy or look thick and cakey under my eyes. It's very easy to blend as well and it doesn't crease on me either! :-) 
♥ e.l.f. Cosmetics Kabuki Face Brush, (HERE) & Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in Transparent, (HERE). 

The Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder by Rimmel London is my favorite, go-to powder. I use it to set my MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Concealer and make it stay in place and last all day long. It's easy to apply and it makes the makeup look flawless. I love using the e.l.f. Cosmetics Kabuki Face Brush with it, it's such an amazing brush that does all the work for you. The Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder from Rimmel London is a great product, especially for the price! :-)
♥ Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara in Intense Black, (HERE). 

I like to keep my favorite mascara or the mascara that I'm currently using in my daily makeup bag. I have to get up early in the morning because off work, so there are days when I just can't be bothered to do my makeup (I have the snooze button on my phone to thank for that), so that's where having a mascara in my makeup bag comes in handy. I just love how mascara instantly makes you look more awake and alive, it's definitely a staple and a must have in my makeup bag! :-)
♥ L'Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream, (HERE). 

Just like my lips, my hands get dry as well, which is why I need to have a thick and moisturizing hand cream close by. I'm currently using the Dry Skin Hand Cream from L'Occitane. It makes my hands feel nice, smooth and moisturized, without leaving behind that gross, greasy feeling. It's not my favorite hand cream from the brand, but it's good enough and it gets the job done! :-)

 I also have to give a little shout-out to the bag as well, which was a gift from my amazing mom. The bag came in a set with the Moist Repair Shampoo and Conditioner from KMS California. I think it's such a cute bag. I'm currently using it to store my makeup and it's perfect for that. I love everything about it, the color scheme is so pretty! :-)

What are some of your must have beauty products? What do you keep in your daily makeup bag? :-) 
Love, Christine ♥

HAPPINESS BOUTIQUE GLAMOROUS OVER THE TOP STATEMENT NECKLACE: REVIEW & PHOTOS

I can't begin to describe how beautiful the Glamorous Over The Top Statement Necklace from Happiness Boutique is. It's such a gorgeous, versatile necklace that can be dressed up with a nice dress and a pair of heels or dressed down with a cozy cardigan, a simple white t-shirt, some jeans and a pair of cute boots.

I love to dress myself in casual and comfortable clothes, but I still want to look cute and presentable at the same time. I have put together an outfit featuring this stunning piece from Happiness Boutique. This is just one way that I would style this necklace and I think it's a great look for every day. I hope you like the outfit as much as I do, be sure to let me know your thoughts in the comment section down below! :-) 



The quality of the necklace is really nice. It has a nice weight to it, it doesn't look cheap or feel heavy around the neck. It's got a $31.55 price tag, which I think is a good price compared to the quality, size and the overall look of the necklace. It's such a beautiful and unique piece, which is going to complete and make any plain or dressy outfit stand out. I have received quite a few compliments whenever I have worn this necklace out, which is always super fun. What girl doesn't like to be complimented every once in a while? :-) 

Where to buy?
The Glamorous Over The Top Statement Necklace is available for $31.55 at Happiness Boutique, (HERE). Use code christineiversen at the checkout and receive 10% off your order over 19 euros. The code is valid until June 7th.

What are your thoughts on the Glamorous Over The Top Statement Necklace from Happiness Boutique? Do you like it or do you prefer to wear something smaller? :-) 

Love, Christine ♥
