Benefit Cheekleaders Face Palette Review, Swatches, Demo

The Benefit Blush Bar was among my Christmas goodies for 2018 - I love the comprehensive face palette; there's everything my cheeks need in one handy, travel-friendly box.
So, when the Benefit Cheekleaders palettes were launched for Spring 2019, I felt I didn't need them - two palettes were launched; the Pink Squad, and the Bronze Squad.
But. But. But. Benefit also launched two deeper versions of their iconic Hoola Bronzer - Hoola Caramel, and Hoola Toasted. Plus, there were two highlighters - Tickle, and Cookie. The last two were exclusive to the Cheekleaders palettes, and I was intrigued.
I found that both Cheekleaders palettes - and their mini versions, with three products each - contained FIVE FULL-SIZED box of powders, including ONE of the new highlighters. The Bronze version also had the new Hoola Caramel. So I treated myself to the Cheekleaders Bronze Squad palette, and to a single box of Hoola Toasted.

Makeup Revolution Haul + Free Beauty Mystery Bags Contents

Recently, I hauled from Revolution Beauty - formerly Makeup Revolution - and received two free Mystery Bags, which are full of full-sized makeup. The Mystery Bags are a regular offer from Revolution every couple of months or so, and are free with purchase of products worth £30 across the site. They're supposed to contain makeup worth at least £28-£30. I made my haul in two different orders, so I got two free goodie bags.
I'm going to show you what I hauled, as well as what I got free, and whether the contents of both the Mystery Bags are the same.

Spring 2019 Makeup Giveaway Open Worldwide

I've had a rather hectic week with allergy issues - third time in the ER in 2019, and we're barely in the fourth month, so things aren't going as planned for me. Hopefully things will begin to look up from next week - it's my birthday on the 14th!
On a brighter note, as promised, here's my Spring 2019 makeup giveaway, open worldwide. This is more of a Spring-Summer giveaway, and contains eight makeup products and a bag.
Please scroll down for the entry form.

January-March 2019 Makeup Giveaway Results

Apologies for the delay in publishing the results of the first giveaway of 2019; I ended up in the ER with swollen eyelids and ears, urticaria, and breathing and swallowing difficulty, after eating some Cadbury's which contained wheat crispies - who knew CHOCOLATE contained wheat???? I thought they were rice crispies. Anyway, steroids and antihistamines (and a moon-face) later, I finally got around to verifying the entries.
The next giveaway will start later tonight, so do stay tuned for that... it is my Spring Makeup Giveaway, and the prizes are some very exciting goodies.
Before that, scroll down for the winner's name!

Space NK Spring Beauty Edit GWP Available Worldwide From 13 March!

Space NK's Spring Beauty Edit for 2019 launched a little later this year - usually they have theirs in late February; this time's gift with purchase comes by the end of the first week of March. They accidentally launched a little too early, owing to some glitch, on the 6th of March, and then the offer was taken down within about half an hour - by which time some people ended up buying it! Space NK then confirmed on Instagram that the GWP would launch about a week later, and everyone would get theirs at around the same time.
This is a free gift of 27 products that you get when you purchase products on their website for £175. It comes with a makeup mat, a Diptyque candle, the new Omorovicza Vitamin C, and more. But all that in a minute. Get yours here - use code BEAUTY19 at checkout.
