Nars Cosmetics Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base Review

Hello Wonderful Chicas,How r y'all???

Today Im going to do a Review on Nars Cosmetics Smudge Proof e/s base which was Requested by  wonderful Sis&Blogger friend 1xellus1 over at She has an Amazing blog Love it!!!! Please check her out if you havent.

What Nars Says about this Eyeshadow base/primer
No smudging, creasing or caking. The NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base is the insider trick of the trade. Never looking heavy-handed, this lightweight eye primer creates a seamless canvas that keeps cream and powder color looking brilliant, fresh and just-applied, all day.

A polymer and mineral powder blend creates a firm grip on color ensuring hours and hours of gorgeous wear. Fortified with special deep-sea and antioxidant rice extracts, the Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base dries on contact and keeps the delicate eyelid smooth and prepared for color application.

  • Extends the wear of eyeshadow, eyeliner and eyebrow pencil
  • Instantly transforms to a matte finish and preps skin for color application
  • Maximizes color intensity
  • Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested. Fragrance free

My Personal thoughts on Nars Eyeshadow Base(PROS)

*My eyeshadow had great staying power when it was placed over this primer (wore it 12 hours)
*Primer goes on clear and is non Chalky
*No caking of eyeshadow
*My eyelids are semi oily but I believe this works best on all skin types
*Applies very lightly and blends like a dream
*No creasing of eyeshadows throughout 12+ hours I was wearing it
*Made eyeshadows really blendable and made them look more pigmented
*Made my eyeshadow stay  fresh all day as if I had just applied 10mins ago

*Packaging sucks almost like the UDPP I have no idea how to get the rest of the product from the tube so be prepared to do some cutting of some sort&depotting lol(Francois Nars if you get this message please bring us this great eyeshadow base in a tube)
*Its a bit pricey just like most Nars products you get 8g for £18.00


.*I really love this primer despite the price&packaging
* I recommend to y'all fellow Beauties as this is such great eyeshadow base and Im sure you will love it too
*I will definitely be buying this again
*Best eyeshadow base/primer I have tried so far

Thus all for today My Lovelies
Hope this post has been helpful
Have a wonderful day
Stay Beautiful&Blessed
Much Love

Product Rave: Nars Sheer Glow and MUFE HD foundations

Hello My Lovelies.How r y'all????Hope u having a great weekend.

Today Im coming to you to share my thoughts on my  favourite Holy grail  foundations Nars Sheer Glow and MUFE HD foundations. I love them both but in different ways.

For long I tried  many foundations and nothing seemed to work for my Normal to dry and Sensitive skin.

1-Loved Mac Studio fix fluid  from when I was just 17yrs (7years ago)but  it felt heavy on my skin,broke me out like crazy&oxidised as well.

2-Tried Fashion Fair foundations the lighest shade they do is dark on me(they cater to my dark chocolate sisters)

3-Tried Sleek Cosmetics foundations didnt like the texture of foundation and finish it gave me

4-Tried all Iman foundations love them but they oxidised in compacts turned greyish and sometimes looked cakey&powdery on me.

After  thorough search,googling &watching so many Youtube Raves&Reviews on Nars and MUFE I finally gave in to the hype and bought both.

My Thoughts on Nars Sheer Glow foundation £29.50
Im shade Cadiz which is Medium Dark 3 and my skin is Sensitive and normal to dry
Best foundation I ever tried I loooooove it
*This foundation works best on normal,normal to dry and very dry skin.
*In my opininon I think it wouldnt work fo Oily skin as its very moisturising and has a glowy finish
*Provides light to medium coverage
*Claims to improve skin texture which it does of coz my skin feels smoother
*Noticed that if you set it with Mac Mineralize Skin Finish Natural powder it willgive you a cakey finish and interfere with the Lovely Satin glowy finish this foundation gives
*Lasts all day on me
*Feels very light on skin
*Doesnt oxidise on me like othe foundations(ErrrrrrrrrrrrMac Studio fix fluid Im talking to you)
*Evens out skintone beutifully and looks very natural whilst giving a glowy finish
*It photographs well as it doesnt contain SPF
*If you have Oily skin I recommend the Nars Sheer Matte foundion

Dislikes on Nars Sheer Glow foundations
*A bit pricey (£29.50 for 30ml bottle)
*As a high end £30.00 foundation I would expect it to come with a  pump which it doesnt you have to buy a pump separately

My thoughts on MUFE HD Foundation
Im shade #173 Amber Rose)
*The most part of why I really love this foundation is that it Photographs really well
*Lasts all day
*Feels lightweight
*The finish is Semi-matte
*Provides medium to full coverage
*Packaging is great
*Comes with  pump
*Doesnt give you a dewy finished look
*A bit pricey (£27.00 for  a 30ml)

                      Overall  Thoughts on Nars Sheer Glow and MUFE HD
I really love both foundations however despite the hype surrounding MUFE HD I dont see much difference it brings to my skin. Besides being good for photography I dont see anything really special about it. Nars Sheer Glow is my Number 1 favourite&Holy grail for now. I do recommend MUFE HD  if you like medum to full coverage and a semi matte finished look. I prefer Nars Sheer Glow over MUFE as it moisturises my dry&sensitive skin&gives me a glowy look which I love.
I will repurchase both foundations and do Recommend to all as they are both great&worth your money

Thus all Lovely Chicas
Hope y'all Enjoy the rest of your weekend
Stay Beautiful&Blessed
Much Love

January Favourites

Hello My Lovelies,How r y'all????? Hope y'all doing great.

Im just doing a quick post to share products that I loved and used most last month!!!!!

No Flash

With Flash
From left Anticlockwise 1. Mac Select Cover concealer in NC45
2. Organics Carrot Oil Hair cream
3. Lola perfume by Marc Jacobs
4. Nars Sheer Glow foundation in Cadiz
5. Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
6. Mac 217 brush
7. Mac Chatterbox lipstick

Mac Select Cover Concealer
I have been loving this concealer for use mainly on my brows
I like it but because I have dry/normal+combi skin this doesnt work well under my eyes
as it cakes up on me
I have tried using it on my face to cover blemishes&pimples and I found it hard to blend as I have a dry combo skin)
I love that the concealer comes in a squeezable tube(dont have to dip my fingers in it)
Will I buy it???Not sure maybe just for brows only otherwise will pass it

Organics Carrot oil Hair cream
Been using this product for a month it claims to strengthen Weak,Damaged hair
It moisturized my hair&strengthened it
I also noticed that my hair ends are now very healthy and that I was no longer experiencing anymore hair breakages.
I am really loving this product,its affordable&it works great.
If you have dry,weak,damaged hair,natural hair,curly,relaxed or texturized I recommend it

Lola Marc Jacobs Perfume
I have always been a big fan of Marc Jacobs perfumes
My husband bought me this last year(chose it myself)
I love the scent of Lola,its a sweet,soft&floral fragrance
Just like its other sibling Daisy,Lola is very classy
This perfume will last you all day&I really love it-Recommend it&will buy Again!!!

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Cadiz
If you read my blog often you will know How much I love this foundation
Its My Holy Grail
This foundation makes my face look natural&healthy
It has Satin finish with light to medium coverage(If u like full coverage this aint for u)
I have Normal-slightly dry skin so this works well with my skin
This foundation lasts all day on me,doesnt cake up on me or turn grey
Have received compliments about my face&strangers stop me to ask what  Im using on my face lol
Downside is It doesnt come with a pump but u can purchase separately
Overall I loooooooooooooooooooove this foundation will buy it even tho its Pricey!!!
I give a thumbs up to Francois Nars

Maybelline Falsies Mascara
Love this mascara,reviewed it sometime last year
I dont wear false eyelashes,never attempted to(Afraid to Poke my eye out)
I invest in Mascaras like this one that give me the false eyelash effect
Sometimes people will ask are you wearing Falsies(im like no mate-just Maybelline mascara)
Maybelline The falsies gives Length and Volume to my lashes
I do like this mascara and recommend it(cheaper dupe of my much beloved Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara)

Mac 217 Blending Brush
This is probably one of the most popular brushes from Mac
For a full year I tried to convince myself I could do without it by buying dupes
I finally gave in and purchased it end of 2010
I am so glad I bought it coz now I cant live without it
I use it to apply eyeshadows&blend
It can also be used to apply cream/liquid concealers and colours to the crease
I dont know how I lived for so long without this brush
I absolutely looooove this brush,just wish it had darker bristles

Mac Chatterbox lipstick
What can I say about this lipstick
Im sure y'all tired of hearing about this lipstick now
Mac Amplified cream lipsticks are my fave
Chatterbox is my fave lippy from Mac
Its a vibrant pretty medium pink shade(surely I could wear this lipstick everyday)
I could spend all day talking about this lipstick but let me not bore y'all
I looooooooooooooooooooooove  Chatterbox!!!


Thus all for Today Sweet Chicas
Hope y'all Have a Wonderful Day
Please Do Take Care,Stay Beautiful&Blessed
Much Love
