Textured Burgundy/Purple Dress & Kylie Lip Kits

I wore the below dress to a lunch and learn seminar on closing arguments at my local courthouse. I didn't have much excuse to dress up last week so I figured being in public in front of people I don't know would be a good enough reason to wear this dress, lol. This has been one of my favorite dresses that I've rented from Rent the Runway so far. The texture did not show up as well online as in person, but it was unexpected in a good way. Also, the color appeared more burgundy online but in person it skewed towards purple. I got compliments from colleagues on my "purple dress." Overall, very pleased with this one :)
In other news, a friend of mine gave me one of her extra Kylie lip kits this weekend and I'm wearing it below in Koko K- I'm loving it! I wore the Kylie lipstick all day (it literally lasted all day, even after eating lunch). Of course it didn't look 100% the same after 10 hours of wear, but it was pretty good! Also, of course everyone who has reviewed these things agrees that they are drying - I just put a little lip balm on before I put it on, and applied it on top as the day went on when I felt I needed to add some moisture. Also, after learning that the lip kits are almost the exact formula as the much more affordable ColourPop matte liquid lipsticks (click here for informative video), I was intrigued to also try the ColourPop ones. I went a lil' crazy the other night and got 4 or so matte lipsticks and 1 of the satin ones, plus about 3 matching lip liners... so I'll let you know how those are when they arrive :) Hey - for $6 each, they are the same price or better than drugstore lipsticks!
