#MAKEUP | Nars sheer glow foundation review - shade punjab

 Foundation is probably the bane of my life....like trying to find the corect shade is daunting. 
The "will it match my colour?"
"is it really full coverage?"
"will it be cakey?"
no matter how many reviews i read on foundations i still struggle with making that final decision.
But you are here today because i made the decision, YAY me!
NARS foundation is the one i have ALWAYS always always wanted to try out as the reviews always seemed amazing. It has aways been between MAC or NARS but i had used MAC before and i knew how thick it was and i couldnt wear that on my face for long periods.
Soooo, i watched so many reviews of the NARS foundation just to get my right shade cos the photos of swatches seem to differ somewhat in person! Thanks to Shaaanxo i decided on the shade punjab and i made the plunge to buy it.
Long story short, it was a good match and now we live happily ever after.

The packaging is to die for, again you should know by now about my intense love for makeup packaging aha.
 I got my NARS sheer glow foundation from ASOS and it retails at £31, which i think is worth every penny. 
Not only is it good coverage, for the best coverage i would say to do 2 layers, bu the biggest biggest yes for me is that it literally and i mean no joke literally feels like you dont have foundation on your skin. With the MAC studio fix for example it is very thick and you can feel it sitting on your face. This is the total opposite.

Im not sure on the undertones of this but it doesnt have that orange tinge to it which a lot of foundations do. It just looks like a skin colour.
It lasts for a good few solid hours and i couldnt be happier with it.

I did swatch it on my hand which is hard to see (thats a good thing though) as it is a good match for me. I bought mine here from ASOS 

My advice if you are buying a shade online but are unsure is to watch a load of youtube reviews or read blog reviews and then go from there :)

what other foundations would you
recommend? 

XOXO

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin! These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel . The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of hone

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it. Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club. Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn. I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours o
