The Face Off: My must have Face Primer

IMG_0226Ok so I have picked another fairly pricey product to review however I couldn’t resist blogging about my latest purchase! Once I had seen Victoria Beckham had raved about this product I was even more tempted to give it a try! So here is my own personal review on…

The This Works ‘in transit camera close up’ which is cleverly a  3 in 1 combined mask, moisturiser and primer in one handy 40ml bottle! Priced at £30 on www.lookfantastic.com its a definitely a ‘must try’ product or at least one to put on your wish list as a special treat. But be warned ladies you may become hooked on this primer like me!

Directions for use

Simply apply  to clean skin, including eye area and massage gently until all product is absorbed. your face and neck should feel slightly dewy and primed read for your makeup. This award winning product really does keep your makeup in place throughout even the longest of days at work.

IMG_0233My Verdict

A very respectable 9/10

I don’t claim to have tried all primers on the market but I have tried a few scaling from cheap to pricey this is definitely one of the higher end products on the market but baring in mind it does 3 different things in 1 bottle ….. well you can’t grumble at that!

Have you tried this product? I would love to hear your thoughts?

Happy Monday People

Urban Decay: Naked2

After being offered a new job this week, I promised to treat myself to a little something.. Now I know I’m a tad late on this, but I chose to purchase the incredibly popular Urban Decay Naked2 palette. I read a review that the Naked2 palette is suited for blue eyes and they were spot on! It contains plenty of golds, taupes, and shimmery greys all ideal for enhancing anyone with baby blues eyes!
