Rainy Day

Today I decided to face the rain and go into town to pick up a few pieces.

I really needed a black boob tube, long enough so that it could be worn on its own but also under other clothes that I have. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a long black one, I searched high and low. I knew Topshop sold them but I really didn't want to have to fork out £14 for something that I knew I could get cheaper elsewhere.

Luckily I held out and found one in H&M for only £7.99. They also had these in white, red and yellow.

I had some money to spare so I went into Superdrug to look at the make up. I got two products, a Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight 700. This was about £5.19 and I loved the swatch on my hand when I was in the shop. However when I got home and put it on my lips, I'm not sure of it. It looks a bit too orangey and too "old" for me. It was a toss up between this, the Barry M 101 and the new Revlon Matt lipstick in Nude Attitude. Maybe I should have gone for one of the others.

I also got a NYC Cheek Glow blush in West Side Wine. This is a gorgeous pinky mauve colour that I think looks lovely on. It was only around £3 so the longevity of this product might not be long. But for the price you can't complain! I took a picture of this but my laptop is playing up and just doesn't want to upload the picture of the blush in the pan.

Swatches of the blush (top) and lipstick (bottom). Sorry for the such bad quality light and pictures, I use my Samsung tocco phone and it hasn't got the best of camera quality!
