Today is my birthday! I am now 25 years in the making and loving it! This past year alone has been so amazing, I started writing my blog, started a new job, met some great people and so on and so on. As a birthday treat for myself I decided to make my first ever trip to Space NK!
And here’s what I bought…
I’ll start off with my refills. I ran out of my NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base £19.50. I love this stuff! Just as good as the UD primer potion but the thing that sets is apart is it does not feel drying on your skin. I find you can feel the UD primer potion on your eyelids and it can feel a little stiff where as the NARS Eyeshadow base feels more seamless.
I also had to replace the brush head on my Clarisonic Mia 2. This time I bought the Deep Pore brush head £21 which is more suitable for combination skin tones. I’ve used this once since I bought it and so far so good! It’s really soft which I like. I will report back after some more use!
Onto new items in my make-up drawer. The Eyeko Sports Waterproof Mascara £18 is not easy to get a hold of! It is only sold at a few retailers and online so when I spotted this in store I snatched it up! I can only use waterproof mascara’s because the standard formulas just don’t hold a curl as my lashes are as straight as a ruler. I have been hunting for a favourite mascara and hope my search is now over! Again if I love it I will report back soon!
Another new item from NARS is the Contour Blush in Gienah £30. I cannot wait to start using this! I love contouring (not very good at it yet but working on it!) as it helps sculpt out my chubby cheeks! And as a duo this will cut down some space in my make up bag I hope!
Last is a hair product and is so hyped up that I had to try it out for myself. The Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray £19 has been on my radar for years. You have bloggers who swear by this such as VivannaDoesMakeup, Lily Pebbles and Amelia Liana. I bought the travel sized one as I am trying it out for the first time and it’s easier to pop in my handbag than the full sized. I did use this already the same day I bought it and I must say I am actually quite impressed. It gave my hair crazy volume and was long lasting. The only thing I didn’t enjoy was how stiff my hair felt the next morning so I need to work out how much I have to use to avoid it.
I am so pleased with my purchases and I think I will definitely going back to Space NK soon (Especially as I have collected £5 in points from my first purchase!). If you are a regular shopper at Space NK I recommend signing up to their loyalty card. They also had their Christmas sets out in store and miniatures for the perfect stocking stuffers.
What would you recommend I buy from Space NK next?
Until next time..
