Products Worth the Pounds


Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara|No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask|NARS Sheer Glow|Illamasqua Skin Base|Clinique Chubby Stick.

Although I love a good budget buy there are a few products out there which are worth spending that extra bit of cash on.

Clinique High Impact Mascara£17.00

I have raved about this product for absolutely ages but its everything I could want from a mascara, length, volume, long lasting and easy to remove at the end of the day. It doesn’t smudge or clump and I think that £17.00 for such a fantastic product is really good value for money.

No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask£12.50

Now some people wouldn’t class this as expensive but I have to say i’m not one for spending out on skin care but this hydrating mask works wonders on my dry skin. It makes your skin smoother, softer and moisturised for days after you’ve applied it.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation£31.00

Sheer Glow is a gorgeous medium coverage foundation that helps smooth out skin tone, evens out skin tone and gives a healthy glow to the skin as well as having a long lasting power. Now £31.00 is a lot for a foundation but this is worth every penny – it’s a lifesaver for us dry skin girls.

Illamasqua Skin Base£32.00

Again a pretty hefty price tag but a little bit of this goes a very long way. Another medium coverage foundation which has an amazing lasting power and great wearability. Skin base has an amazing range of shades and works for all skin types.

Clinique Chubby Stick£17.00

£17.00 for what is a fancy tinted lip balm sounds ridiculous but these are the original and the best. Super moisturising, non-sticky and with just the right amount of pigment these are the perfect on the go lip colour. You can keep on applying throughout the day and not have to deal with buildup.

What products do you think are worth spending more on?

NARS Sheer Glow|Review


NARS Sheer Glow Foundation£31.00

Pale girls rejoice NARS are another company who loves us!

The NARS Sheer Glow is not really sheer at all, I would say it was more of a medium to full coverage which means it gets a tick from me. It gives you a flawless base with a satin finish perfect for us dry skin girls out there; it adds moisture to the skin as well as smoothing it out. However the Glow part of the name is true it gives your skin that glowing from within look without looking overly shiny.

I can wear two shades in this range first is Siberia the palest shade in the range it caters for people who have both yellow and pink undertones in their skin neutralising everything but I can also wear Mont Blanc (the second lightest shade) which is far easier to get a hold of on the counters. I love to apply this with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush but this is also a great foundation to apply with your fingers.

If you struggle to find a foundation that matches your skin tone check out NARS!
