NARS smudge proof eyeshadow base


Having greasy eyelids means one thing, eyeshadow never stays put. I find myself constantly on the hunt for a product which will allow my shadow to stay for at least a night out. I used to use the Urban Decay Primer Potion which is honestly amazing and would recommend it to anyone who has the same problem as me as it just completely mattified the area and glued any shadow onto my lid. However would never last an entire day on my eyelids. 

I got the idea of moving onto the NARS Smudge Proof because of the volume of love it receives and also I fancied a change. Let's face it, in true beauty blogger style you have at least a hand full of the same product, just different brands. 

Whats it like: It has a dofa applicator and the consistency of the actual product reminds me of a thick moisturiser or thick serum. When rubbed into your skin it almost instantly sinks in to create a rough feel ready for product to be put on top of it. 

Does it work: YES! It actually does work. The first day I used this I had it on from 6:30am - 7:30pm and yes I still had shadow on my eyelid. I will admit that it wasn't as vibrant as it was to begin with, however I had no creases (which is a win in my book). 

Compared to Urban Decay:
I feel like I can't compare this to the Urban Decay, just because it's been so long since I've used it. From what I remember of using it I do think I prefer NARS. Purely down to how long the NARS works on my eyelids. The Urban Decay was always really good but never did it last 13 hours in the way that the NARS one did. 

Do you use this product? Or do you have another favourite you could share with me?

  1. I use the Urban Decay primer potion and a lot of people say that the Nars one is better, might purchase this instead of the UD one next x

    1. Honestly it is a hard choice between the two, but the NARS is great! Go for it :) xo

  2. I normally just use my foundation primer as an eyeshadow base. But this sounds amazing, so I might just have to invest in one of these - I love all Nars products.

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
