As soon as I tried this Poppy Lux dress on, it was love at first sight! I haven't worn velvet for years and this dress just makes it look so perfect. Although you can't quite see it in the full length photos, this dress does also have a pattern on it, which is a really nice detail. I wore this with tights, a tartan scaf and the boots above for an interview yesterday, but it's so versatile, it also works great as a dress for a night out.
8 hour lip protectant-£20 (here)
This was one of the many products included in the BBB Dream Box 2, and it was one of the ones I was most excited to try! I've heard a lot about the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour creams and so I was intrigued to see if this is as good as other people claim. I've been using it for the past few days, and it's definitely up there with my favourite lip balms!
Jane's beauty boxes are a bit of a 'blink and you'll miss it' event, and this time round it caused both hers and latest in beauty's sites to crash, which is pretty incredible! Luckily, after spotting the box on the website about 10 minutes before it was set to launch, I got my order in early and fairly easily. I was home for an interview this weekend so it wasn't until I got home on Sunday afternoon that I got my hands on it.
Capes are big this A/W, so when Blue Vanilla sent this beauty over, I couldn't wait to start wearing it! This cape is black with a lovely grey aztec print around the edges, and the material is nice and soft, making it really comfortable to wear. As it's coming to the end of term, this is going to be great to wear to the library when I have mountains of work to get through and it's freezing outside!
Facefinity Foundation, £11.99 (here)
I've been meaning to buy myself a new high coverage foundation, and when I popped into Boots last weekend I was immediately drawn to the Max Factor stand. I've heard great things about their foundations, and as they're more towards the expensive end of the high street, I was expecting great things!
Run Boy Run palette, £6 (here)
I've been meaning to get my hands on one of the Makeup Revolution salvation palettes, for £6 the quality is amazing, so when I saw the stand in my local Superdrug, I just had to pick up one for myself. After deliberating for the better part of an hour, I settled on Run Boy Run, a mix of warm Autumnal shades.
