Elf Studio Range & Sleek, Topshop & River Island Haul

Hi guys,

I have lots to talk about today. First things first, for those of you that follow me on Twitter, you will know that I made an order from the Elf (eyes, lips, face) website two nights ago, for some of the new Studio range items. This was all thanks to my lovely boyfriend who put it on his card for me, as I didn't have any cash in my account. 

I got the complexion perfection powder compact, (as pictured above), this product is meant to even out the skin tone and absorb excess oil. The directions on the packaging state to "blend the powder over the entire face to brighten and even out the skin tone as well as neutralise any redness". Elf products are extremely inexpensive at normally £1.50, the Studio range however is priced slightly highter at £3.50 each, but still amazingly cheap. 

Along with that, I got the Translucent Matifying Powder Compact. I have quite oily skin, so I was on the look out for a new powder. This product is meant to achieve flawless shine free skin, horrah for that!

The last compact I got was the warm bronzer. The Studio range contains three bronzers, warm, cool and golden. I'd heard that the cool wasn't so good, and the golden was more shimmery, so I opted for the warm. I contains four gorgeous shades, so I'm looking forward to trying it out for a bit of a sun kissed glow now that the sun seems to have come back.

Also from the Studio collection I got two brushes, both of which are eye brushes, and again were £3.50 each. One is the small precision brush and the other a contour brush. Both of which will be ideal for applying product to the outer corners and crease. 

I then had a look at the regular range and got another two eye brushes, this time they were only £1.50. I got a blending brush and a smudge sponge. I will let you know how I got on with all the Elf products once I have had a chance to have a play with it all, which I am looking forward to.

Today I went shopping to pick up the new Sleek palette from Superdrug. Sleek palette's are always amazing quality for the price and when I heard that there was a limited edition palette being released today I just had to go and pick one up.

I present the Sleek Curious Palette:

A lovely mix of blues and purples, with a bit of a random yellow in there too, probably the only colour I won't use.

I then popped into Topshop as I had a top to take back and I picked up this one instead, its a lovely long top, so it can be worn on it's own with leggings, yay! And has the most gorgeous black sequin detailing on each shoulder. The top is oversized, so can be worn off the shoulder and for those of you interested, it was £28.

Next up I went into River Island, where I got two things, a racer back vest, as pictured below.

This vest has a lovely diamante chain detailing on the front at the neck line and it was £19.99. And lastly I got a pair of dark denim skinny jeans with a patch detailing at the knee(the picture does them no justice as they also have tiny dark paint splashes on them too). I haven't bought jeans in ages, and autumn/winter is sadly fast approaching, and they cost £44.99

Hope you all enjoyed this mixed up haul.



  1. Loveeee the Sleek palettes! I have them all except for the acid one (a bit too bright for me). Great haul! x

  2. @Daisy I totally agree with you on the acid Sleek palettes! x

  3. Great haul!! You'll have to tell me how that Elf complexion palette is... im curious

  4. Can't wait to get my hands on the curious palette. I think I'm going to get the Complexion Perfection compact thing from Elf, I've been umming and ahhing for a while and I have really rosy cheeks so think this would be a good bet...
    I've been eyeing up that top from Topshop - except I want it in black with orange shoulders. Lush x

  5. @Cupcake Couture course I will!

    @Lil I'll let you know how I get on with the Complexion Perfection, I don't really have any redness, but I do have dark circles under the eyes. And I had no idea the top came in other colours! x

  6. oo love that new top you got!
