Kinda a gratuitous post because I'm purely posting because I like my makeup. Im wearing Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum cover, which I will be reviewing once I use it a few more times. But if you're like me and like super duper full coverage foundation, its definitely a winner. I have terrible skin at the moment due to not sleeping and eating terrible food for the last few weeks, so its doing the trick giving some luminous matte coverage!

Outfit was a bit basic today as I just couldn't be bothered as I had too much work to do. Grabbed whatever top was on to of my things in my drawers! I've never worn the top before, even though I bought it when I was working at New Look over 6 months ago on my final spree before I left!  Wearing a mood ring makes me feel about 12 years old but it was quite cute so I just had to buy it! It didnt come with instructions so I cant tell my ~mood~ but tends to go blue on me! Probably means grumpy or something! Boo.

  13. Basic or not, it's a lovely top!

    I like some silly jewels thrown in with my jewellery sometimes... I'm wearing a tiny little silver sparkly band that came free with something today, it looks so cute with the rest of my rings though haha!

    My foundation is some Rimmel one and it's like water, I need something so much better, I may try this!

  33. I just got a sample of this foundation too. I love the coverage and the colour is absolutely perfect (which is a rareity for me). I find I get really shiny really quickly though (even with a mattifying primer), and when I use my blotting papers the foundation comes off in patches. I hope you have a better experience with it - I'm sure the shiny factor has a lot to do with the humidity here in Brisbane though.

  35. I think blue on a mood ring usually means "relaxed" or "calm". I am embarrassed that I know this information. But there's your fun fact for the day!

  43. I'm sometimes really tempted to try Estee Lauder double wear. But idk. I'm think I'm the opposite from you that you avoid Benefit because of the non-sleek packaging, but I prefer fun packaging as it makes it seem less snotty. That's probably just me though. :/

    Might suck it one day if I don't find anything better.

    Lovely outfit though (went on a bit of a ramble there) - you can never fail with black and white!
