Nars all day luminous weightless foundation

This is the new foundation that Nars has recently released . I was in space nk with the intention of buying the sheer glow but because they didn't have the pump in stock i opted for this  . I have been trying it out for a while now so i can give you my opinion .

First off i matched my self and i picked a  shade too light but this isn't a major problem since i can use bronzer to warm up my complexion . On application i would recommend that you use a primer to make sure the foundation glides on . I have tried it with and without primer  . The pump dispenses small amount of product but don't be tempted to pump  a whole lot more since a little goes a long way . 

The coverage is medium to full coverage . But i don't see it to be a luminous finish . I would say its more of a matte finish personally .  I don't feel like its weightless either  as the name suggest . This might be down to my combination skin but i feel like it  breaks up around the nose area . I also feel  like it fades during a day . 

To me this is a foundation that i would only reach for if I'm going out for a few hours rather than all day . For the £32 price tag i defiantly don't feel like its worth it for me and wouldn't repurchase it .

tarte amazonian clay full coverage foundation

I am always trying new foundations . This was one that i wanted to try for a while. On a recent trip to imats i decided it was time to give it a go . I am in the shade ivory and it matches perfectly . Its an oil free foundation so it would be perfect to you that has an oilier complexion. My skin is combination since i get a little bit oily in my t zone throughout the day . Also i have some scarring and discolouration so i like a high coverage foundation from time to time to achieve a flawless finish.This defiantly  gives me the coverage that i need on those days.
The application is great as it blends with ease . I like to mix in some strobe cream to give it a more glow , this is just my personal preference . A little goes a long way so don't get carried away. Although it's full coverage i don't feel that it sits on top or sink in to any fine lines  and it looks very natural . This isn't a weightless foundation yet its  comfortable on the skin .  I would highly recommend this foundation and it can be bought from  qvc in a set with a foundation brush for £33.50 :-

the body shop vitamin e aqua boost sorbet

I by chance picked this because it sounded like it was going to be nice and I'm glad I did . This gel  texture moisturiser is instantly cooling and I feel like my skin feels amazing .it would be amazing for hot summer days . A little goes a long way and .I am not a big fan on  moisturisers because I feel like they make my skin feel tacky but this soaked right in and made my skin feel  a lot smother , All I can say it is amazing and you all  need to go out and try it !! I lost my first pot and had to repurchase another .

you can buy this at the body shop for £13

Urban decay naked concealer

The  urban decay naked skin weightless complete coverage concealer has received so much hype . This was the main reason that i first tried it .I thought that it claimed to be high coverage and weightless . in the past all the high coverage concealers has been heavy on the skin and it creases under the eyes .
 I was a bit apprehensive to try it . But much to my surprise all the claims was true . it is high coverage but yet feels so weightless and it doesn't crease under the eyes . The color range isn't fantastic ,I'm between two shades but i decided to go for the lightest one . I mainly use it for  under the eyes to hide those  dark circles and brighten the under eye area . A little goes a long way .The applicator is handy as you have the perfect amount to apply under the eyes and on some blemishes on t This is now my go too concealer and I'm already on my third tube .
get yours from the urban decay site for £17.50 :-

essie quick- e

Fed up of  waiting forever  for your nails to dry ? Never have the time ? Always end up with smudges ? Yes this was me before i found this miracle product . This makes my nails dry in under a minute and it's a godsend when  I'm doing my nails in a hurry . This comes with a little pipet and all you need to do is have one or two drops of the solution on each nail  after you paint them. As if by magic my nails is dry almost instantly . Only down side to it is that it does leave an oily residue but what i do is massage the leftover oil into my cuticles and i find this works well . The days of hating doing my nails are  well and truly over .
you can find yours at your local boots or online at £8.99 :-

mac strobe cream

This is hands down the best product that i have tried from mac . I  was first  bought it last year . I bought the travel size to try it out . Since then i have gone  and bought the full size version .This is a white cream that has somewhat of a pearl finish . This is a very useful product and can be used in many different ways .
First way is as a primer  this is very moisturizing cream . It works well as a primer  and it makes sure that your foundation glides over any dry patches . I wouldn't say that it prolongs the wear of the foundation  but with a powder it last all day  . 
Another way i use this product is to mix it in with my foundation . I use it with any foundation i use and the  result are always amazing . After i mix it in the foundation i feel that applying the foundation is a whole load better . It makes blending in so easy it is unbelievable . This also  gives my skin a nice luminous finish .
This can be bought in all mac stores and retails at £24.50  for 50ml

Becca x Jaclyn Hill shimmering skin perfector

When I first heard about this collaboration I knew I have to have it . I stumbled across Jaclyn hill videos over six months ago and since then i have watched  every video she has posted since as well as some of her older ones . I love them , she is so funny and her makeup  is always  amazing . Her highlight is always glowing and amazing  and i know that this highlighter would be the best I've tried and it didn't disappoint .This highlighter is a light gold color with pink and peach undertones. The formulation is amazing , Shimmery but not glittery . I would say that its more of a going out highlighter but i use it every day because  I love it that much . I'm even tempted to buy a back up of this  for when i eventually run out . But this wont be for a long time because a little goes a long way .
You can buy this from Sephora website which  can ship to the UK :-
