Why I Love Autumn!

Hello my wonderful bloggers i thought in todays post i would share with you my love for Autumn!  

The Weather


The colours that come out in Autumn get me so giddy and make me feel all warm and nice inside! It is really cosy in autumn and its not too cold but it not too hot it is just right! ( it always reminds me of GoldiLocks when i says it just right because when she tasted baby bears food she says it is just right! 


how gorgeous is this photo?!

I love the style of clothes in the  autumn they are really cosy and a love the colours!  

Make up

I love to experiment with different colours when autumn comes, i like the darker plum and burgundy colours! I think if you get the right shade anyone can pull them off! 

Hope you liked this little quick post form me please comment and let me know what you think!  

Lots of love my wonderful bloggers

Elf Haul! (Very Picture Heavy)

Hola my beautiful blog followers! I'm back with a wonderful Elf haul! I recently took advantage of Elf's 50% sale which makes Elf's normal reasonable cheap prices even cheaper! So lets crack on! 

The first think i got was a Duo Eye Shadow Cream. I have wanted to try this for a while so when the 50% sale came around i thought just go for it! I have been using it for the lsat couple of days and so far so good! 

Duo Eyeshadow Cream: Dawn  

The shadows are extremely soft and very easy to work with however the do crease like no bodies business if you don't apply a primer before hand ( or just add a bit of eyeshadow under of on top of the cream eyeshadow and it doesn't seem to crease as much).  

The next products is a re purchase: it is the eye lid primer. I love this primer so much! I personally have never tried the Urban Decay primer potion so i can't say how it compares to that but i do love it! 
 Primer: Sheer 

The applicator is nice and i love how it doesn't leave too much product on the applicator. 

As it is called 'Sheer' once the primer is rubbed in you can't tell you have got it on which therefor makes it suitable to wear with any eyeshadow. 

This is my first blush from Elf as i have herd that Elf swatches are awful so i thought that it was pointless buying something that i thought i liked when actually in real life i hated it but i was feeling very daring when i placed this order! 

( This is wear i practice my awful camera skills! 

I give a lovely flush of colour to the skin and as it has a warm undertone it is great for Autumn! 

This is the swatch on the website, which i don't think is awful but i thought it looked more peachy in the swatch on the website! 

This was the product that i was very surprised with! IT is HUGE! It looked tiny to me on the website so i was happily surprised when i un packaged it! 

Bronzed : £3.50 

This is the swatch from the Elf website which i don't think is a bad match! 

My last item was the Studio 10 Piece brush set! This is the product that i was most excited about receiving and i have mixed feelings about it so far. The face brushes are not very dense which makes them a little difficult to work with but i'm not going to say that i definitely don't like the as i have only used them twice! 

One thing that i do really love about the brushes is that they have what they should be used for written on the handle and i think it makes them look a lot more professional and when i am doing tutorials on my youtube channel it helps been able to tell people the exact brush i am using! 

Hope you liked this post if you aren't already following please do so it makes me happy! Lots of love!

Where have i been?

So.... where have i been? 

I know i don't have loads of followers on here blog, but all 22 of you mean so much to me! I have definitely learnt that blogging (for me) is a lot harder than youtubing! I found it a lot easier to get going on youtube, however i am determined to make this blog work as i love reading other peoples blog and i enjoy blogging! 

So Genna where have you been?! Well i have just started sixth form and the first two weeks have not gone as smoothly as i had hoped but it is slowly getting better! I have also felt a bit under the weather with a cold and a sore throat this past week. 

If you have any requests on what you want to blog about ( subtle hint for requests) i would be more than happy to hear them! 

Hope you all are well! 

How has your week gone? 

Love you all!

My M.A.C Collection & Review

Hello my lovelies! I'm here to show you my tiny M.A.C collection and my thoughts on the products that i own! 


I don't have many items from M.A.C ( a mere 6!) however i have already fallen in love with M.A.C! The quality of the products (98% of the time) is impeccable! I really like the packaging the pigmentation and the variety of colours! 

M.A.C Big Bounce Shadow - Good Fortune 

This product was used on me when i went to M.A.C for a 1hour make up application. I loved the way the make up lady (great grammar Genevieve!) used it on my eye and i just loved the all around look of it especially the colour! 

It is a mouse type texture however it is slightly lighter and more runny.  It comes in a range of 16 colours from neutral to bright. It is priced at £13.50 which i think is quite reasonable.  

However i find it very difficult to apply, the way it appears on the eye is very sparse, it is very hit and miss, some times it can look drop dead gorgeous other times you can hardly tell you have got it on! But when you get it right it looks AMAZING! 

Studio Sculpt Foundation 
Next Product is the Studio Sculpt Foundation,  lurrrvvveeeeeee this foundation so much! I haven't been using it that long as i was using the Revlon PhotoReady but it broke me out and my skin didn't like it and my sister Liv was using the Studio Scuplt and her skin didn't like it so we did a swap, and i love this and she loves the Revlon PhotoReady so bonus! 

Shade: NW15  

I'm not sure wether this shade is slightly too dark as Liv bought it for her holiday when she was more tanned, but it is still wearable it does not make me orange at all just leaves me with a healthy tanned glow! 

It gives such a smooth finish and is so soft to the skin! It is is priced at £23.00 which i find very pricy and probably wouldn't have paid that before as i have herd that M.A.C foundations aren't really the best but as my sister bought it i thought i would give it a try, knowing how good it is now i would go out and buy it with my own money i love it that much! 

Next up is a blusher, when i went to the M.A.C near me the make up lady did not use this exact blush, she used a cream blush but i mentioned that i wanted to start buying things that i was going to use almost everyday and get the use out of them. She then suggested that if i like the blush that she used on me (which i did!) then i should get a powder one which is basically the same as the cream one she used on me as they are better for everyday use! 

Blush: Mocha 

On the M.A.C website they describe the colour as "Soft Plum Pink" which i think is spot on, however i do think this is more of a winter blush than summer one but it is too nice to store away! 

This is priced at £17.00 which i can imagine you going "wooow really?!" yes yes i know it is very expensive but in my eyes soooo worth it! 

It brings a really lovely natural pink matt colour to the skin and compliments any age skin!  

I only own one M.A.C lipstick and i treasure it because i adore it that much! 

It is a lustre lipstick with a gorgeous vanilla smell. 

Lipstick: Lovelorn 

I like to describe this as a 'better than lip colour'. I like to use it as a everyday pinky nude colour as it seems to go nicely with every outfit. 

There isn't much need for a lip balm under it as it is already very kind to the lips! This lipstick is priced at £13.50, i think this is obviously quite a lot more expensive than drug store lipsticks when you can most likely find a really good dupe! However i think that the pigmentation, the smell and how long it lasts really does put it above drug store lipsticks. 

I have three M.A.C eyeshadows and i love all three of them! The first one is a shimmery champaign colour and is perfect for every day wear all over the lid! The colour that is shown on the website does not give this eyeshadow any justice i actually didn't like it at  all on the website but when i saw it in store i really liked it. 

It is one of the best shimmer eyeshadows i have used as i much prefer matt eyeshadows to shimmer as i feel they suit my eyes more but this one did in fact win me over! 

It is obviously highly pigmented and easy to blend and all in all is a pleasure to use, and for £11.50 is brill!

Next is a shimmery pink eyeshadow that i thought would be great for most days when i want a pink and brown look. I was slightly disappointed with it as it seems too shimmery. However it is still a nice colour. 

Eyeshadow: Da Bling 

I do HATE the name so much when i mention it in youtube videos i just want to cringe every time i say it, and it almost puts me off wanting to use it! 

Despite the awful name it is still a nice eyeshadow and i have found myself using it on a regular basis ever since i purchased it! 

The last eyeshadow is by far my favourite one out of all three! It is a Matt brown and i use it everyday! 

Eyeshadow: Haux 

In my eyes it does seem to have a pinky under tone to it which i love as i tend to use it with other pink shades. 

I love the texture of it and for £11.50 i think it is outstanding, and i will keep repurchasing this for as long as they sell it! 

I hope you didn't mind this very long post but since my last post a few people had requested to see all of my M.A.C products and my thoughts on them! 
Please comment down below, thanks for stopping by my lovelies!
