Another OOTD? Just an Average Day at College♡

Hiii Beautifulss!! Just thought I'd do a quick post sharing with you my OOTD from Monday- just the average day at college.. It was meant to go up earlier but I've been busy with revision and essays :( .. Student life ey *sighs*. 

So my Blazer is from New Look who are currently having a 20% off discount for students !! I'd had it in my wardrobe for a couple months and totally forgot about it .. But a blazer is perfect for those inbetween weather kind of days we seem to be experiencing in England at the moment. My top is just a plain long sleeved black top again from New Look. 

Jeans I purchased from H&M a few days ago and boy were they a bargain- £7.99!!!!! My gorgeous necklace is also from H&M yes I know I currently have an obsession with statement necklaces can you really blame me though? I think not..

Just a quick mention I am thinking of doing a Lipstick of the Week series as I don't tend to mix up what make up I use as much as I do with lipsticks, so just let me know your thoughts and any lipstick suggestion ideas! 

Picture quality will get better- promise! I'm working on it, just been having a few technical difficulties! 

Have a good week lovelies !

I thought I'd show you all my FOTD and OOTD, nothing special just went out for a meal with the family :) .. Some of you may be surprised that I didn't leave my hair natural and decided to straighten it (due to a slight knotty hair issue, I'm sure you curly haired girls out there feel my pain!) .. Before I start to ramble on with the post!

Raisa Cheema Made Me Do It!!!!! #minibeautyhaul

A few weeks ago the beautiful Raisa Cheema posted a video on her YouTube channel (click here to watch), and the three products shown above were included. So me being me went out to my local Boots the next day and picked these up as they were on 3 for 2. I'd been looking out for a BB Cream that helps with my crazy oily skin so when Raisa mentioned the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream I knew I had to try it! It is not perfect at keeping my oils at bay, but it is a whole lot better than the ones I have previously brought. I've found the best way this works is by using Wayne Goss's trick (it has literally worked wonders not just with this BB Cream but my foundation too!). This really does feel so nice and light on my skin and when I do have a breakout on my face this really does not anger the spots further, most likely down to the fact that the BB Cream does have salicylic acid.
I had heard a lot about the Maybelline Fit Me concealer and thought it was time to see what this hype was truly about.. Needless to say I am sooo impressed! It doesn't really do a great job in covering blemishes but that's not really what I wanted it for, instead I use this in the shade 10 under my eyes, and boy does it do a great job in covering the under eye mess! It does not crease on me and yet somehow doesn't look unnatural as I find some concealers under the eyes do tend to do!
Okay, moving on to the thing I was most excited about trying- Seventeen Stay Pout Lipstick in Make an Entrance. So as soon as Raisa appeared on my screen I was dying to find out what she was wearing on her lips and turns out it was this bad boy! It is simply gorgeous and I could not resist the urge to slather it all over my lips as soon as I got out the shop! No words can describe how I feel about this lipstick. Lipsticks/Lip glosses are my favourite beauty product to try out I absolutely love them! This lipstick is most definitely something special it is a red lipstick with orange undertones which I was a bit sceptical about to begin with as anything with orange undertones do tend to make teeth appear to be yellow, however this was not the case! It glides on the lips, super easy to apply and lasts quite a while without drying up my lips. So if you're on the look out for a red lipstick which isn't too bold and in your face then this is the lippy for you!
Overall I would recommend all of the products I have mentioned in this post! They are AMAZING!!! All of the above are very reasonably priced and there always tends to be some sort of offer going on whether its Superdrug or Boots.
If you would like a more in depth review of any of these products leave me a comment down below!
Hope you're all well!
