Lust After: Bunny Wrap Cardigan

so I want this cardigan sooo badly
It is Gorgeous!
I'd never seen it before this week,
but it seems I'm a little behind
ASOS had it before Christmas and it's sold out!

Its properly amazing!
I've done my research and its by Fairground,
It's called their ' bunny wrap cardigan'
and its £95!!
which I'm afraid is just too much for me
Especially since when ASOS had it it was £75!

As seen on Marina from Marina & the Diamonds

and the gorgeous Diana Vickers

I'm gonna have to see if i can find a cheap Japanese version on eBay

would you wear a cardigan with bunny ears on it?

My first Beauty Review: Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

Hi guys,
The reason I am showing you the god awful picture above is today I'm doing my first review!
Ive never really ventured into the beauty blogging world before
so please bare with me!
I don't know the correct terms for things,
but I can give my honest novices opinion, hopefully to help other newbies!

I bought the new Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation & concealer, from boots yesterday!
I had seen it in magazines and saw the display,
I tested it on the back of my hand and thought it was worth a try.
I bought it with my points as well, so nothing to loose really!

As you can see my skin is very red,
in fact it can get 10 x as bad as the photo above
(and I am wearing a little light reflecting shimmer above
which seems to take away some of the redness)
I'm also quite pale, and I'm not really a foundation wearer
as I've never found anything I'm happy with.

Here is me with just the concealer and foundation on!
The products both smell really nice,
I'm generally really funny about strong smells,
but this was just pleasant and fresh, and the smell dissipated quite quickly.
Colour wise this is 51 the palest they had, its an OK match but not great
Its not pale enough and a bit too yellow/orange based
rather than pink beige.
Having said that I really like the consistency and coverage,
it was super easy so apply evenly even though I'm not used to foundation!
I used the concealer under my eyes and on my nose, underneath the foundation.

and here is my make-up complete!
I showed my sister during the process and she said with all my normal red tones taken away I looked to pale, so I applied some estee lauder shimmer powder and pout bronzer on top.
I feel i look a little too orangey for my liking,
but that's a combo of the foundation and bronzer.
being naturally red I have never had use for a blusher, I seriously don't own one,
so a blusher is now on my to buy list!

Overall , I really like this foundation, and I will persevere with it,
combining it with different powders etc to see if I can look less yellowy,
love the consistency and ease of application though!

Hope you found this interesting!

Any ideas on what colour / type / brand of blusher I should get??

Have you tried the new Bourjois foundation? what do you think?

New Arrival: Alice in Wonderland by Paul & Joe

Hi guys!

Other than taking pictures of myself for uni
(not just for fun *cough cough*!)

I have also been waiting for an asos order
and today it arrived!

It's the Alice in wonderland tin by Paul & Joe
I was really gutted I didn't get my hands on an urban decay palette
so thought I would plump for this to ease my pain!

It came in a gorgeous cardboard sleeve / box
it's quite textured and expensive feeling
and the little illustrations are so darling!

Here's the tin itself,
It came in two colourways,
blue packaging with a peach lipstick (which is what I went for)
and pink packaging with a pink lipstick

Open it up and inside is a blotting paper holder (with mirror)
perfect for in your handbag
Blotting paper refills
and the lipstick
The tin is pretty sturdy,
and everything feel really good quality

Here's the lipstick
I swatched it for you
and erm there was no point showing it to you!
it is so sheer there is next to no pigment at all
just a little shimmery, felt moisturising though

and here they are in my hand for size comparison!

Overall I love it!
Its worth it for the packaging alone in my book!
its well made and so so cute!
However I was considering getting both colourways
and I'm really glad I didn't
With the lipsticks lack of pigment, almost like a lip salve,
I assume the pink would be pretty much the same
so yeah, no need to get both!

have you considered buying it?
or do you have the urban decay palette?

(if you do I'm jealous!)
