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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
