Better than Primer Potion? ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer Review


Remember when Urban Decay Primer Potion was THE BOMB and nothing else would do? Then other brands released eyeshadow primers to rival UDPP and suddenly, whoops, you have 30 eyeshadow primers at home. Or is that just me? ELF have complicated matters further by making this extremely affordable £3 mineral eyeshadow primer. Now anyone can prime their eyelids regardless of what budget they are on! They say: This gentle and completely sheer Eyeshadow Primer has […]

The Best Foundations, Candy Style: No. 5: KATE High Coverage Foundation


This week I am reviewing my 5 current favourite foundations! Last but not least to my 5 favourite foundations of the moment is this little gem from KATE (a baby brand of Kanebo Japan). KATE does not look as pretty as Lavshuca, but it does produce less fluffy, more useful products, in my opinion. KATE High Coverage Liquid Foundation is not a typically Japanese base, because other Japanese liquid bases I have used offer a […]

All In One Color! Stila One Step Primecolor in Rosie Posie Review


You know me, love to have multi use, multi functional beauty products so I was rather pleased to try out Stila’s One Step Primecolor, a formula made with mineral pigments that can be used as a primer, cheek colour, lip colour, highlighter and eyeshadow….shade pending, of course!

Prep the skin! Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Hydrating Review

Oil Free (for oily skins) 3. Hydrating (for drier skins) 4. Mineral Foundation Primer (good for use with mineral make up) 5. Powder Mineral Primer There’s a few brands I turn to if I need a reliable base products (Primer, Concealer and Foundation) – […]

Instant, Even Skin: Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer Review


I have such a thing for Primers (it seems like I have a thing for everything, but please, bear with me!). I love eyeshadow primers, lip primers and foundation primers – anything that makes the application smoother and easier, anything that makes the my base last longer. I was gifted this rather Pixi Primer from Pixi: I believe this comes in two colour variations, Evenskin 1 and Evenskin 2. I have Evenskin 2 which is […]

Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse SPF 30 Primer Review


Something about the crackily texture of a mousse product appeals to me but I don’t have much luck with it. Mousse reminds me of the crunchy haired girls at school, who would cover the school floors with white flakes as they swooshed their hair around. Tentatively, we look at the Shu Uemura UV Base which has recently been reformulated: They say that the benefits are: – Improved make-up staying power – Improved colour vibrancy – […]

Take Note, Cheryl: Stay Don’t Stray with Benefit Eyeshadow Primer


Primers are my one of favourite things to try so I was very happy to try this Benefit Stay Don’t Stray product: They say: You put it underneath your concealer and eyeshadow, and it’s packed full of antioxidants and vitamins E & C to protect the skin. The primer then keeps your concealer and eyeshadow in place and stops pesky creasing. So this product is:

NYX Eyeshadow Base in White, Pearl and Skintone Review


Love primers, especially eyeshadow ones and they are totally essential for me – the good ones really help keep everything stay put. I have them in compact form, in stick form, in tube form etc… Even if I don’t specifically have a primer to hand I will use a stick, tacky cream eyeshadow or even a gel liner as a base. I never go base-less because I just feel that my eyeshadow won’t last more […]
