Let's talk a little make up today, in particular the brand Elf. Now Elf is one of those very affordable brands which have a great range of products which I would say some people underestimate whilst just like any other brand yes not all of their products are phenomenal there are some which are absolute gorgeous and are absolute bargains.

Today I wanted to talk to you about a newish addition to their studio line, The Studio Elf Blush Palette.The palette hold four gorgeous shades which is great as it can be used for various looks. With a mixture of both matte and shimmery shades which is great as you get a selection of product within a small palette . The shimmery shades are very wearable as the shimmer is very subtle and not over powering which can be the case with a lot of products which do contain a bit of glitter inside them.

The texture , finish and pigmentation of this product is of a high quality and luxurious product, which being honest I was very impressed with , I have used some of their powder type products before and felt like they did not reach my standards however it is not the case with this product. All of the four shades have a butter smooth and extremely pigmented texture so do apply these with light hand and build it up for a more intense look.

I particularity like the packaging of this product ,the matte finish gives it a chic , sleek look. It contains a built in mirror which is great and perfect if you are travelling or on the go. Another great thing about this palette is that the individual pans can be popped out so if you are able to customise your colours as they do the pallets in dark and light for different skin tones. The palette I have is in the darker shades but as you can see they are still very wearable and flattering.

The main thing I would improve on with this palette is possibly naming or numbering the colours so that it is easier to reference to them. Nevertheless the shades that come in the darker palette are as seen below. All four shades in my opinion are very pretty and versatile would suit many skin tones. 

Overall this is such a great product at such an affordable price it retails at £7 which I personally think is amazing for the quality of the high pigmented product and the choice of colours you receive. Trying out this product reminded me I need to try out their products more often and I am looking forward to placing an order with them so will be having more elf product reviews for ya'll soon.Get your Elf Blush Palette here.

Fall trends are defiantly one of my favourites , although the colder weather is not something I particularly enjoy in terms of fashion it is a perfect opportunity and time to experiment with layering. ,Fabric and texture collaborating  can be an  interesting and fun way to create stylish looks. In today's post I worked with my brothers girlfriend and we created two looks based around the leather pants trend , it is such a fun and great way to incorporate the leather trend to your wardrobe without the obvious leather jacket which of course is a must have too in my opinion. I love the contrasting colours in both looks that can be seen in the photos , the vibrant yet still on trend and very autumn tones create versatile looks which can be dressed up or down. The bold fall lip created using the KIKO lip liner adds a vampy and bold look , it works very well with the whole outfit and the burgundy coloured top. What do you think of this look?
