Okay. Right. Let's get serious. Who doesn't love a good eyeshadow palette?! I hauled this little beauty from TK Maxx here a while ago but it's taken me a bit of time to get around to finally putting it to the test. On the whole, I pretty much stick to my tried and tested neutrals but I thought this palette might stretch me slightly out of my comfort zone. I've never really dabbled in the world of green on my eyes and I thought it was about time.

These shadows are definitely of high quality - the pigmentation is there and the formula is buttery and lovely. I'm not sure exactly how I much I love the green on me, but this is a great fall palette and there's enough variety in there to create lots of different looks.

I do like how it looked, but I think next time I might add a touch more warmth into the look. You can see it in action in this video. I think I'll definitely be open to trying more shadows from Stila in the future and playing with this palette more and more this autumn.

Have you tried any Stila shadows? What did you think?

Remember when I used to blog? Yeah, me either really. But I want to come back...! I absolutely love watching tutorials and GRWMs on YouTube but I hardly ever film any of my own! So I thought I'd just film a little bit of myself getting ready... and this is what happened. This is one of my favourite kinds of looks to wear. A bit of soft glam. Love.

Tell me what you think! :)

I've been really loving my beauty boxes lately. I definitely let the promised higher value justify spending a little extra on beauty products. "It's alright if it's a bargain!" Today, I'm unboxing the latest edition of the Look Fantastic beauty box on my YouTube channel. It's a pretty great one, so take a look if you want to see what's inside!

You can even still get your own here:

I'm not often blown away by a blush, but I have been really impressed from these two from The Balm as of late. The Balm is sort of that inbetween drugstore and high end brand in terms of price, as these blushes come in between £15.50 and £17.50.

Frat Boy is a gorgeous universal blush with both peach and pink tones running through. I've found it pairs well with almost any make-up look, so I reach for it often when I don't want to think too much. Down Boy is more of a mix of pink and purple. Both blushes are very pigmented, which I'm not always a fan of, but they blend so easily into the cheeks and take practically no time to add the perfect amount of colour to the apples of the cheeks. That makes them perfect for a busy lifestyle where quick and easy is so crucial.

I have to say the quality does match up to the slighter more expensive price in this case. I'm already looking into more blushes from The Balm, or maybe even a different product. Have you tried any? Will you be trying these?

So, I've definitely been slacking a little (a lot) on blogging and youtubing but I'm back with one of my favourite videos to film. I compared my first subscription boxes of 2015, from Glossybox and Birchbox! Hope you enjoy it :) what did you get in your boxes this month?
