Freedom Makeup Haul & First Impressions

FreedomMakeup

There’s a brand spanking new makeup company on the block – Freedom Makeup. Owned by the much loved and highly affordable Makeup Revolution, Freedom Makeup are the professional sister company. When they launch last week they had not one, but two promotions running and I thought it would be rude not to take a look at the site at least. Upon seeing that the prices were equally as good as Revolution, I couldn’t resist a little haul!

NOTD Ft. Essie and Sally Hansen

I’ve mentioned a few times on here before that I am terrible for chipping, smudging or otherwise ruining my nails within 24 hours of painting them. In fact, I’ve gone so far as to say I find it impossible to make a manicure last that long. Those days are now behind me! Thanks to these great tips from Anomalous Me Beauty, whose blog is really worth following if you’re not already!

I picked out my high end products to give this a go, as I know from many many reviews that they’re meant to be a lot better lasting than I’ve ever managed.
