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.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To 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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
