The elle next door

Blueberry revolution, what the f**k on earth could that possibly mean? Well, despite it sounding vaguely like a brand new superfood/smart phone/pancake recipe/or just some other crap that I regularly make up… it is actually my shockingly shit poor attempt at introducing a post about an outfit – and earrings that you can win, more on that later – with blueberry (a posher way of just saying “blue”) tones, and an introduction to Makeup Revolution.

Yep, my title attempt really was that lame.

On a slightly less lame note, when I was planning this outfit, I realised that I didn’t quite have enough blue items in my wardrobe… i.e cue all the online shopping this week in search of the perfect spring time lavender/blue/wisteria colour’d playsuit, dress, skirt, jacket… everything. Basically all blue ehhrthing…

On to the revolution part of my shockingly bad title; my first array into Makeup Revolution. I had a rather embarrassing – Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah’s couch style – moment when I saw that Make up Rev (yeah, we shorten brand’s full name, cool…) have a section in my local Superdrug, and delighted in buying all the budget goodness.

P.S I’ve only used each product once so I’ll give a little “one sentence, first impression” kinda thing. Cool? Cool…

Makeup Revolution
Makeup Revolution lipstick nude
Makeup Revolution lipstick, Nude – I’m not totally convinced on the formula at the moment but the colour is a really pretty pinky/beige nude. Looking forward to trying this more.
Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Good wife
Makeup Revolution Shadow, Good Life – So, from the pan, this looks like it would be a taupe/purple/brown colour, right? Wrong… This is actually a really light, almost lilac colour but I actually really love it. It’ll definitely be a love or hate colour so make sure you swatch this one.
Makeup Revolution blush Love
Makeup Revolution blush, Love – So, this blush is pigmented. Like, one dip of the brush and you are more than good to go. This is a really pretty, natural pinky peachy which just leaves a nice flush to the skin. 
How about some ridiculously unflattering close ups in an attempt to show them slapped on the face whilst simultaneously shoving it in some wisteria? Sound like a plan? Right, let’s do it…

Next up are these stunning earrings from Gemporia* which have quickly become my “I really can’t be arsed bothered to make an effort so give me all the chic and “put together-ness” in an instant, please and thank you!” piece. They really just do exactly that, completely dress up an outfit and make me feel a little more polished.

I absolutely love the triangle shape alongside the gorgeous blueberry – ahhh, now the title makes sense – quartz gemstone as they are so different to anything I own. But they’re also extremely wearable. And do you know what the best bit is? You can win a pair right now by entering the competition/giveaway box at the bottom. [insert thumbs up emoji here] What are you waiting for? Oh, you’re waiting for me to shut the hell up stop waffling on and let you get to the end of the post, awkward… πŸ˜‰

    You looked great and that jacket is fab @twydalldee

  15. Rubi Ani says:

    You look fab, babe (I probably write a variation of that on every post of your I comment on).
    The 'blueberry' things just reminds me of that clip from project runway "'Blood orange' she's so pretentious, shut up it's f*cking red". We all do it though. The amount of times I say 'oxblood' when I could just say 'dark red' or 'maroon'.
    Those earrings are cute.

      Thanks so much lovely, so glad you liked the post! Isn't Wisteria just perfect? I'm not sure how I'm going to top this backdrop πŸ™‚


  34. This outfit is so gorgeous. I adore the trousers and I am a big fan of the shoes too! I got a similar style from New Look a few months back and they absolutely wreck my toes but they look so so pretty with everything. Not tried Make up Revolution yet but I'm definitely hearing a lot of hype! xo

    • Ellie Adams says:

      Oh god, I know the feeling of shoes wrecking your feet… that's why I couldn't do a close up of my feet, blisters on blisters on blisters!! πŸ˜‰


  35. Annabel B says:

    Cant lie…defiantly read this as 'Burberry' (well it is 11.30pm!) so blueberries are a disappointment in comparison haha. But can we all just stop for a minute and admire your beauty?! Pwhoaarrrr!

  36. I love this outfit I have some trousers very similar from new look and keep wearing to the death of them as I all about trousers at the moment, I used to actually hate wearing them can you believe it! Now confessional time, I don't like make up rev lipsticks they don't last at all and don't apply well but their shadows are a completely different story I love their eyeshadow palettes so much! xxxx

    • Ellie Adams says:

      I actually can believe it lovely, I used to hate trousers like this but they're literally my go-to now! I can totally see where you're coming from, I'm not a huge fan on the lipsticks so far, but the eyeshadows are pretty amazing! πŸ™‚


  37. LBG says:

    I love the post title! I was expecting food and find a blue outfit! You look so pretty! All of these are such great items

  38. This is a wonderful look and the backdrop is perfect. I love your writing style so honest and amusing. @sometweet7

  39. This shoot is gorgeous! I love how the black and white stands out against the gorgeous lilac floral background. Obsessed with that leather jacket and wish it was still available! But, I'm seriously loving everything about this outfit and how the pants are the focal point.

    • Ellie Adams says:

      Thanks so much Linda, how gorgeous is the Wisteria… totally outshines my post πŸ˜‰ Oh I know, I feel terrible that it's no longer in stock but they have some great similar versions!

    I loved those pants and this jacket is my perfect jacket -I read it's 2 seasons back- (still trying to find a perfect leather jacket!)

    You should invest in some lavender hued items. Your face is absolutely glowing in those up-close shots! Ps: I totally bought an Origins kit with that overnight mask included after your raving about it, haha. I absolutely love the smell (!) but the products haven't been moisturizing enough for my dehydrated skin sadly. Finding a good skin care regimen is no easy feat. xx
