OOTW: Fallin' For Fall

Autumn is well and truly here, is everyone getting ready for the storm? I've stopped up on the essentials such as crisps, soup and magazines haha. Before the storm well and truly hits us I thought I would rock bare legs and snap my sunday outfit, pieces I found at my family home and forgot I even owned. I am IN LOVE with my new boots from Topshop, they arrived Thursday and I have been desperate for the weekend to appear so I can wear them. One thing I will say about these boots is go up a size as they came up very small and tight.

How is your weekend? Isn't everything look so pretty at the moment now the leaves have fallen!

Illamasqua- The Sacred Hour Collection

Hands up who loves a new make up collection, *waves mine in the air* now I know this collection has been out for a bit now but I wanted to trial the products fairly to see how I felt about them. Lets start with my favourite item from the collection this gorgeous vampy raspberry violet lipstick in the colour Shard doesn't it just scream Autumn! It is a matte finish but feels so creamy on the lips and doesn't pull like some matte lipsticks do, it is a real statement colour and one I highly recommend it for winter as an alternative to a red lip.

My second favourite item from this collection is this blusher in Peaked. This is completely up my street a matte dusky rose colour and is one of those fancy cream to powder formulas. Usually cream blushers and I just don't see eye to eye but this formula really works for my skin, it doesn't separate and highlight dry areas of skin and gives you such a natural flush of colour. This has been the only colour I've been wearing since Autumn has begun and it goes so nicely with the shard lipstick.

Finally the New reflective palette this caught my eye straight away as the colours are so pretty. It contains four creamy colours which are very light weight and so easy to blend, my favourite is the taupe colour. This is the kind of palette which is great to have it your bag incase you are going out after work as no brushes are needed and it is so easy to apply.

Have any of you got anything from this collection? Feel you are brave enough to wear Shard?
