Morphe 35O Palette Review


So today I'm going to be reviewing the Morphe 35O palette, which I must admit is one of my all time favourites. I own a few morphs palettes but this one is my most used and I find myself reaching towards it much more than any other eyeshadow palette that I use.

The palette comes in this sleek black, plastic case with the brand name written on the front. They are quite thin so they are easy to store and carry around. 

This is the palette which consists of 35 beautiful shades. It a brown and red shaded palette with both mattes and shimmers. The range of colours allows you to create many different looks which is also why I adore this palette.

The shades are all highly pigmented which is great as you don't need to use much to build up colours. All of the colours blend easily and the pigmentation of the shades are amazing. 

There is a little bit of fallout, which is expected when using a strongly pigmented palette. I would certainly recommend this palette, despite this one fault. 

Here are some zoomed photos of the palette.

This palette is amazing for everyone, whether you like to practice and experiment with makeup for the fun of it, whether your learning or if your a professional makeup artist. It suits everyone!

I have also created a full makeup look with this palette for the eyes below: 



Overall, this palette is a MUST HAVE in my opinion, I can't stress enough how much I use it and would recommend it to all of yous! 

It is available on (Official Morphe Site) US ONLY FOR $22.99

Let me know your opinions on this palette and whether you own any Morphe Palettes in the comments! Any questions leave below.

Much love, Em xo

My fitness goals for 2017

I have always said that I will get fitter and eat cleaner at the start of each year, but I never fully stick to it. For the past 3 years I have been a member of my local gym and I have ate much healthier than I used to but this year I am determined to get my body in the shape that I really want it to be. I find it quite hard to stick to resolutions, especially when I haven't shared them with anyone, so I decided to write a blog post and start all of these fitness goals from tomorrow; in order to know what I need to do to achieve my goals. 

Workout Motivation: I have goals Damnit! You Daily Health and Fitness Motivation provided by @fitpossiblecoach . Make sure you REPIN if you like seeing these quick quotes. This will help spread inspiration and motivation to more people searching!
So here are my fitness goals/resolutions for 2017:


I have always loved my healthy food but I also have a huge love for takeaway; like Mcdonald's, Chinese and Indian. I want to make sure that I am aware of how good the food is that i'm putting into my body and I want to try my hardest to limit the takeaways to special occasions. 


Honestly, I am much more of a carbs lover. However, this year I want to limit the carbs and eat more fruit and vegetables. At the moment I barely eat 2 portions of fruit&veg a day so I want to try to eat my 5 a day. 


I usually have a lot of water but I want to make sure that i'm drinking at least 8 glasses a day. While i'm out I need to make sure that I stay hydrated and while i'm at school. I drink a glass of green tea every night but I want to try to have a glass with my breakfast as well as dinner.


This is one of the hardest resolutions for me to achieve. I eat so much more than my body actually needs. I eat way too many snacks and my meals are bigger than they need to be. I am going to make my portions a little bit smaller each week until I am happy with the sizes. I need to try to eat slower for my mind to realise that I am full up.


I usually go to the gym once a week but I am going to make sure that I get some kind of workout in at least 3 times every week. I feel like this will help me get more toned and motivated to eat healthier. 


The pain you feel today, will be the strength you feel tomorrow.

Killing it.... #greatass #tinywaist:
If you focus on results, you'll never change. If you focus on change, you'll get results.:


I personally love the Victoria's Secret Angels figures. Obviously it is unrealistic to believe that my body will one day look like theirs but they definately motivate me to become healthier. One in particular is Bella Hadid. She is always working out and her figure is to die for! Here are a few photos which motivate me even more to workout:

So these are my fitness goals for 2017. I am hoping to eat cleaner and work out more to achieve them and I am excited to see results.

Let me know in the comments if you would like to be updated on my results and further fitness posts!

Much love,

Spectrum Ultimate 30 Piece Set Review


I'm back with a review of the 30 piece makeup brush set from Spectrum. They caught my attention immediately as I came across them on Instagram and I immediately wanted them so much. As it was my birthday last month I decided to ask for these and luckily I received them as a present. I am so in love with them and I have nothing negative to say about them.

These are all of the 30 brushes. I am used to using about 4 brushes and makeup sponges to apply my makeup so when I received these I was so excited to use them to apply detail to my makeup and to advance my makeup skills.

These brushes are perfect for any makeup lover, whether your a professional makeup artist or if your just starting to learn. It's so nice to have a set of brushes that are of a good quality as they really do help to make a difference. I never thought brushes would affect my makeup that dramatically but they have really improved my eye makeup especially.

The brushes included are listed below:

A for Application

A01 - Large Domed Powder
A02 - Angled Foundation
A03 - Oval Foundation
A04 - Tapered Finishing Brush
A05 - Precision Blush
A06 - Large Fluffy Shader
A07 - Colour Applicator
A08 - Medium Fluffy Shader
A09 - Angled Eyeliner
A10 - Small Fan
A11 - Spooly
A12 - Fluffy Pencil
A13 - Short Smudge
A14 - Brow Definer
A15 - Lip Liner
A16 - Precision Crease
A17 - Angled Brow
A18 - Oval Concealer
A19 - Fine Detailer

B for Blending

B01 - Flat Top Buffer
B02 - Domed Buffer
B03 - Baby Buffer
B04 - Small Angled Shader
B06 - Tall Tapered Blender

for Contouring
C01 - Large Fan
C02 - Flat Top Contour
C03 - Tulip Powder
C04 - Angled Powder
C05 - Small Domed Contour
C06 - Tulip Eye Contour

These brushes are priced at £99.99. I am so happy with this purchase and I honestly think that they are 100% worth the money. The pastel pink brush ends are so pretty and the blue and purple brushes just top of the design. They are so soft and apply makeup smoothly and evenly. I would recommend these for everyone, as presents or just to treat yourself.

These are my 5 most used brushes from this set. I use them to apply my eye shadow and the unique shapes of each of them really help to achieve a strong, bold eye shadow look.

I also love the detail on these brushes. They are so easy to clean to and the product comes off really easily onto makeup wipes so they are easy to keep in condition.

The set includes two of these fan brushes which are perfect for applying highlighter. They are amazing and if you don't want to buy the whole set they are available individually on the Spectrum website.

I hope you enjoyed reading this review. I have many more makeup reviews to come so let me know in the comments if you enjoy reading them.

All brushes are cruelty free & no animals were harmed during the making and testing of these brushes. 100% VEGAN. £99.99.

Lots of love,

Emily X
