Shiseido The Makeup Mascara Base VS. Shiseido Nourishing Lash Primer Comparison

Shiseido-Mascara-base-Primer-Nourishing.jpg

I mentioned earlier today that Shiseido discontinued their highly popular and fabulous Mascara Base for a new formula, the Nourishing Lash Primer. The conclusion is that the nourishing primer does do a good job so dry your tears; we haven’t been given a dud in replacement! I’m going to do a quick comparison for other Shiseido mascara base fans. The two tubes: The older mascara base came in quite a heavy weight tube but the […]

Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base Review – The best primer on the market?

Shiseido-Nourishing-Mascara-Base-Primer.jpg

I’m not usually one for worrying when a product is discontinued; there’s always an alternative out there but I did nearly keel over when I found out that my beloved Shiseido mascara base had been replaced by a new formula; the Nourishing Mascara Base: Shiseido Mascara Base, the original, was simple the best lash primer – ever. It held curl perfectly and you could match it with the worst mascara ever and it would still […]

Look what I won!: Becca Mineral SPF Primer Review

Becca-Mineral-SPF-Primer-SPF-30-.jpg

So I never enter Twitter competitions, but very randomly (being a bit silly to be honest) entered one run by Becca – they asked a question; name one of the ingredients in the new Mineral SPF Primer (I said Water!). And some how I won one of the primers! This SPF 30 primer has an oil-free formulation, a silky matte finish and a cocktail of anti-oxidant vitamins to prime and protect the skin pre-makeup. BECCA’s […]

Boots No. 17 Photo Flawless Foundation & Primer Review

No-17-Photo-Flawless-Foundation-Primer-.jpg

Boots No. 17′s newest primer and foundation is called Photo Flawless – who doesn’t want to look flawless in pictures eh? I do find that foundations (such as Make Up For Ever HD) make you look a bit ‘dead’ in real life. So how would this duo compare? I am madly into primers of all kinds so this teeny tube piqued my interest. 17 make-up artist Vanesa Guallar says: “Apply the silky formula all over […]

No-7-Vintage-Loves-Eye-Palette-Group.jpg

Boots No. 17 seems to have been rather creative this time round for Spring because I found myself lusting after a few of the items, so I thought I’d share the images with you. Launched on the 28th of January 2011 is the Vintage Loves collection, which has these two pretty eyeshadow palettes (Limited Edition) in Metallic Nude and Pretty Pastels £5.49 each: As soon as I saw this palette I though Integrate – completely […]

Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum Review

Diorshow-Mazimizer-Lash-Plumping-Serum.jpg

I want to find an amazing lash primer – Shiseido Lash Base was always my first choice but since they have reformulated it, I am looking for a worthy predecessor. I tend to avoid mainstream brand primers, I mean, high street/drug store brands, or even Lancome, Clinique, Chanel, Urban Decay primers because I find they are that sort of gloopy white formula that is far too heavy for my lashes. I didn’t have success with […]

Screenface Shadow Magnet Primer & Cremewear Blush Review

Screenface-Blusher-.jpg

I really like visiting the Screenface shop whenever I’m in London – it’s like a little treasure trove although I do feel like a pretendy make up artist! A faker. Screenface have their own range of cosmetics, which I admit I wouldn’t have picked up in store out of choice. I have a cream blusher and a eyeshadow primer to test: First off, the packaging is plain – it’s black and certainly passable but it’s […]

Got Dry Patches? Kanebo Coffret D’or Moist F Coat Base Primer Review

Coffret-D_or-Foundation-moist-base.jpg

A few months ago I bought the Coffret D’or Moist F Coat Base primer and Silk Cream Foundation (review later today!). I thought the idea behind the Coffret D’or Moist F Coat was very clever and appropriate for the winter season – it’s a pearly pink type cream in a small pot which is used as a primer, but for dry spots. On top of that, this product can be used as other things – […]
