So, the foundation. I finished my MAC Studio Sculpt in NW15 a few weeks ago and I simply couldn't afford to replace it much to my chagrin. I'm terrible at choosing foundation so I was at a loss to choose when faced with all the different brands in Boots but having recently read a review by a fellow blogger Courtney (I love her blog, her reviews are ace and I envy her wardrobe) I decided I'd give MaxFactor Lasting Performance (£9.99) a try, getting it in shade 102 Pastelle. It's quite a nice texture in that it's not too oily and it doesn't feel like its caked on even when I build the layers up to full coverage. Big plus! However, I do tend to touch my face a lot and it tends to rub off and look patchy around my chin and mouth. This is probably more my fault than the foundation but it isn't any more long-lasting in this respect than any other foundation I've used. I do think I'll buy it again once I've run out though!
My boyfriend's Mum gave me a No.7 Smoky Eyeliner (£9.75) she got free with another purchase and despite not yet finishing the Soap & Glory Supercat! pen eyeliner I'm currently using I thought I'd give it a try. I'm a lover of cat flicks so I thought I wouldn't be able to make a 'smoky' eyeliner work for me but I actually quite like the result. Rather than my usual strong, defined black line its a more smouldery effect that is different without feeling like I've majorly changed my usual look.

I'm quite chuffed I managed to get a more expensive eyeliner than I'd usually buy for free and to find what I'd consider a really expensive lipstick that I'm quite sure I myself didn't buy just floating around in my bedroom somewhere!
Finally, here is my new playsuit from Primark. It was only a fiver so you really can't go wrong with that!

P.S. Please excuse my hair in all these photos it is badly in need of a hairdresser's attention!
Much love! x
