Office OOTD

Top : Missguided 
Midi Skirt : H&M
Coat : River Island 
Lipstick : MAC Media

I have decided to do something a little different and go with an outfit of the day post for you (my apologies for the photo quality). This outfit is for work and this is the type of look I usually go for - midi skirt, top and sometimes a blazer. 

I am absolutely loving this coat from River Island, although it was rather pricey, I pretty much wear this every day now that we are getting into colder weather this does keep me warm on my walk to and from work. The sleeve fall just below the elbow with a a pleather trim on the edge. The stripy top as you can see has a scoop back it's a good basic top to have in your wardrobe I think and paired with jeans can look more casual, but also dressed up a touch with a skirt like I have done.

I hope you liked this post, if you'd like to see more outfit posts let me know in the comments.

Peekaboo Peeptoe

Now, I love an ankle boot as much as the next girl. They are so versatile whether you want to dress them up for a dinner, drinks with your friends or you can dress them down just for a casual lunch or a day of shopping. So I'm loving this trend of peep toe and 'backless', chelsea style ankle boot as they just add a little something, something to an outfit. 

The style I have chosen from BooHoo are quite plain with a gold detail zip on the outside of the boot and a zip on the inside. They were quite tight at the toe when I first got them and rubbed a lot but now that I've worn them in, I can wear them daily with no problems rubbing. I like to pair these boots with - well most things in my wardrobe whether it's skinny jeans or baggy trousers, they just wear so easily. 

I have gotten so much wear out of these boots already and even though we are heading into the colder months in the UK, I will still be rocking these day to day, they are really comfy and good quality.

MAC Pint Pot | Groundworks

I have a recent purchase to talk to you about today which is the MAC Paint Pot in Groundworks. I have wanted this paint pot for so long now and I'm so happy I now own this beautiful product.

Ok, so it doesn't look much in the pot, I agree, but trust me it is stunning. If you are like me and don't tend to wear eyeshadow on a daily basis, but want to wear something other than a winged liner and mascara, then this paint pot is where it's at. Groundwork is a very neutral brown shade which looks so beautifully natural on the eye - that kind of 'no makeup'makeup effect which is good if, also like me, you work in an office and don't want to over do the eye makeup or even if you just want a quick and easy makeup look.

You can see in the photo how natural this colour is - gorgeous. The MAC paint pots are thick and creamy but easy to apply with either fingers, brushes or both, either way they are easy to blend out and work equally well as a base for eyeshadows. One this product is set it will not budge so it will last you all day, which is what we all want..right? There's no definite shimmer in this shadow, however, the finish is like a satin look which I like.

I will 100% be getting so much wear out of this product and really urge you to go and check it for yourself, if you haven't already got this in your collection, I think this is a must have.

YSL Fusion Ink Foundation

Today I have a luxury product review to talk to you about which is the YSL Fusion Ink Foundation my shade is B30.

This foundation retails for £31.50 so it is very deer for people of a younger age, however, if there is one product I will tell anyone to spend that little bit more money on its a good foundation. I haven't tried any of the other YSL products before so I can't compare to any of their other foundations but, I can safely say I am quite impressed.

Fusion Ink is very light weight with a silky texture to it and I would say it has a medium coverage. This foundation is better used with a primer to help it last all day long without any touch ups and I prefer to work this product into the skin with a damp makeup sponge for a better finish.

The finish of the foundation is a velvet finish so not too matte and not too dewy either so I would recommend a dewy finish primer, as a base for this product, if your after that kind of look. The product comes in a glass bottle with 2 lids and no pump, as you can see from the photo above, one on the lids is attached to a stick applicator. You can either apply foundation to your hand and then to your face or go straight ahead and apply it to your face. If you are prone to break outs I would recommend not applying to applicator directly on your face just because you don't want to put any bacteria from the breakout back into the rest of the foundation. 

YSL offer 16 shades to chose from so if you are looking to spend a little bit of money I would definitely consider getting a tester of his foundation before you buy it just because it is more expensive than your average foundation. 

I would really love to hear your thoughts on this foundation if you have tried it, leave your comments below.

KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick

So I have a review on the KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick in number 38 - Golden Taupe.

This eyeshadow stick has a very soft, creamy texture which is very easy to apply to the eye. It is extremely easy to blend, however, once it has set it really does not move and smudge. This product is very lightweight on the eye lid and looks beautiful on its own without any additional eyeshadows on top.

For £6.90 this shadow stick is very pigmented and easy to build up and layer for desired intensity, so you can wear this for an easy, quick daytime look or you can build up the colour for a smoking night time look. The particular colour I have chosen is a purpley, taupe shade with golden shimmers through it and will look beautiful with any colour eyes.

The photo above is just one swipe of the stick, so you can see just how pigmented and stunning this product is. KIKO have a 32 colours to choose from I store and online so there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy.

I highly recommend these shadow stick if you haven't tried them already, they are very affordable and long wearing. Leave any comments below.
