It's over! The spending ban is through!
About bleedin' time too as I was nearly out of samples of foundation I'd picked up to replace the Shu Uemura one from a couple of posts ago. I sampled Chanel vitalumière - which I have to say is a really nice foundation, I really loved this but it's just a tad too dark for me, the lightest shade takes loads of blending to make it look okay on my pasty skin, was also worried about this making me look a bit too shiny.
Next was Nars sheer glow, I'm loving this as well to be honest, and it sits so well on my skin and is pretty much what I was looking for in a new foundation! Swoon.
I also got a tester of Mac pro longwear and I really liked this too, it honestly lasts and looks fresh for at least 10 hours, even after a night of dancing! I usually put 2 coats of foundation on and with this I only needed the one, brilliant for hot days or long days at the office.
So I got both (oops!) the Nars and the Mac - I know, I know but I've been on the spending ban and it was just after my birthday so I treated myself...and I took back the Shu Uemura disaster and exchanged it with these so saved a bit of money too! My only gripe with the Nars is it doesn't have a pump, which I was half expecting but it would be a welcome addition. Colour wise I got NW20 in the Mac and Mont Blanc in the Nars - 2 totally different colours but workable..!
Also, picked up some of the Kiss USA ez lashes, the ones with the red application strings. Amazing. I applied these after a glass (or three............) of champagne and they were bob on! I only wear falsies for a night out and these are so simple to use. Gone are the days of fiddling with tweezers and sticky glue fingers while pushing and prodding the lashes into place. I can be a bit sensitive to the glue included with lashes but this one was fine, unlike the Girls Aloud lash glue which left me with horrid swollen puffy eyes the next day!
You can see from the picture I also did my top liner after mucho champers too!
P.S The spending ban is back on..... *groan* x
