OOTD & FOTD with e.l.f Lipstick - Gypsy

Hey guys! Hope you're all having a lovely week, I'm still stuck indoors writing my essay but it's nice to see blue sky out the window :) Plus, I promised myself that I'd work extra hard today because I'm meeting the lovely Charlotte tomorrow to go shopping!! I'm so excited/nervous/everything-in-between. We're both taking cameras so expect plenty on Saturday! :)

Last Saturday my sister went off to see JLS at the Manchester Evening News Arena and my parents and I stayed in town to have a lovely meal at a Chinese place called the Rice Bowl. The food was great but I had a bit of a migraine from studying all day so I wasn't feel too hot.

I still made an effort though and I even braved outdoors with a bright lipstick on - first time ever that I've managed to leave the house with bright lipstick without feeling self conscious or rubbing it off after 5 minutes!
I wore the lovely blue blazer I picked up from H&M for £24.99, a plain white vest top and my super cute and comfy new crochet pumps which were a measly £5 at Primark!!

Now for my first ever FOTD! Sorry the pictures not the best - the lighting was awful.
Here I'm wearing:
  • Miss Sporty Ohh! Tan So Fine Bronzing Powder - 001 Sun Kissed
  • YSL Touche Eclat - 01
  • Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Mascara - Noir
  • Lancome Liner Design - 01 Noir Sensuel
  • e.l.f. Lipstick - D12 Gypsy
  • Benefit Blusher - Coralista
The e.l.f. lipstick is brilliant! It's quite sheer so the look above was three coats. I love that it's really buildable, so I could use one coat for during the day and a couple more at night. It had great staying power, lasted a good few hours even after eating! The blue of my blazer really made the colour pop too - I was worried the colour was a bit too Barbie against the bright blue but I went with it anyway :)

Got to start planning my outfit for tomorrow now!!

What do you think? ♥
