Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation Review

I have been scouring the internet reading reviews on many foundations, as I have been looking for a new foundation that has a good coverage and stays on long! And yes I finally managed to find the perfect one. This foundation is available in 30 shades, so I'm sure it will be ideal for everyone to find something that matches them well as a lot of foundations will usually only have a few basic shades, but this should pretty much cover everyone. My shade is 2N1 Desert Beige.

The foundation defiantly does not lie when it says 'Stay-in-Place' as it defiantly does, for me this is ideal and I'm sure for anyone else it would be too, it's so much easier not having to reapply through out the day as you see your makeup wearing off but with this it looks exactly the same and this really did honestly surprise me. Like I mentioned I was looking for a good coverage foundation, well this one defiantly gives a full coverage which is perfect preferably for me at the 'girly time of month' as that's when I find I break out most and feel bleurgh about my skin! Something people may not be too keen on is that it is a very matte finish and this isn't always to everyone's taste but I actually find it looks really good on my skin and doesn't appear cakey. 

Overall I really like this foundation at the moment and I would defiantly recommend it to anyone looking for a full coverage, long lasting throughout the day foundation!

Winter Wishlist

Today I have been feeling majorly in the Christmassy/winter mood! It's probably a little early to be saying Christmas mood, oops so I've called it 'winter'. I was at first going to call this the 'October wishlist' but I thought that it's not exactly what I want for October its something I want all through winter, yet we are actually in autumn, clearly I'm too ahead in time! Anywhere here you go, oh and you will notice it is pretty much just clothes, I was just internet shopping browsing at clothes really, I may do a separate one for beauty products ect though. Anyway here we go..

River Island beige open weave snood - £15 - I defiantly think I will be getting this, I think they are so nice and a much better option than scarves, I do like scarves but I like the way these are styled just like already folded as sometimes scarves can be a pain! I'm really glad I found this one, I actually pictured one in my head and surprisingly it actually looked quite like this.. So I'm happy with this find.

Nasty Gal split up knit - £25.16- I really like the look of this and unfortunately on the site it says 'final sale' and so I'm guessing this is going to be it's last selling of it and I'm probably going to be likely to miss it :( I wish it was staying though so I could wait a little longer to get it! I also really love knits around Christmas, so this would look perfect and also its quite dressy too, casual and dressy, always handy!

Topshop knee high socks - £6.00 - I remember saying to myself last Christmas that I wanted some over the knee wintery/Christmas socks, as I just think they'd look really cute to lounge around the house in to feel all warm and winterified! But these will have to do as these are all I can really find for a winter style knee high socks; they look warm!

River Islands Men's navy alpine lodge snowflakes print jumper - £38 - Yep this is a mans jumper! Again I think these are just really nice to lounge around the house in, and I love wearing boys clothes, they just seem so much more comfier and I love being buried in them!

Warehouse duffel coat - £95 - I really badly want a duffel coat, they look so nice in the winter and I really want to find one and I came across this one which I do really love but it's a bit much for me to be casually handing out for a coat, but I do need to find a cheaper alternative for this as I love it, but a girl can wish..

Enjoy the rest  of your AUTUMN!
