New work clothes haul & foundation review!

Hello ma'lovelys, I will be starting my new office job soon so I decided to go on a little shopping trip.

Now normally Marks & Spencer's wouldn't be my first choice of a shop to go looking for clothes in, however I had spotted a few suitable work items online so decided to pop in and see for myself. 

The first item I brought was this navy blue top with white polka dots on it. There is also a tie to the side.This top was only £6 (such a bargain I think).

The next top I brought was a multi-toned cream and brown thread top with colourful cute little birds on
It also has criss-cross ruched tie to the side and this was £13.

Next I brought a skirt, I hardly ever wear skirts but I just had to get this; its so cute!
It is a mixed pattern design skirt in white and black. It fits just above the knee and has a straight zip down the back. This was £19.

 The last item I brought was a dress. It is a panel dress with three quarter length sleeves, and has black and white stripes running through it. This dress was £29.

So after I made these purchases, I popped into boots to pick up the Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation. So here comes a review!

I absolutely love this foundation, it gives a really gorgeous glowy look and makes you feel like you have a natural dewy complexion. This foundation is great for the spring/summer time and I will be doing a look for that soon. 

The foundation is really soft and glides perfectly onto the skin, it also smells amazing; not like many other foundations which have a really nasty distinctive smell.

I used my Real Techniques Stippling brush to blend the foundation on to my skin. I only needed a small amount of foundation to cover my whole face and it gave me a medium to full coverage.

A few photos to show the foundation, with a finished look of a dark purple and black smokey eye!                                       


Hope you liked my work clothes haul and enjoyed my review of the Wake Me Up Foundation.
