The newest launch from Nars seems to have got everyone talking, especially as the Nars Sheer Glow has become such a popular foundation. Plus, who doesn’t want last all day, luminous but yet weightless foundation?

The All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is medium to full coverage, however at first I didn’t realise I was suppose to be using just a single drop for my entire face and instead was using a few pumps and overloading my face. I’ve since started applying one (or one and a half, I have a large face) pump and it’s amazing that it actually covers my entire face when I apply it with a brush.

It has ‘Even Tone Technology’ which helps cover redness and discolouration leaving the skin looking almost airbrushed. This does mean however that it isn’t a foundation you could wear with no blusher or bronzer as it really does remove the natural dimension of the skin.

I find it last longer than any of my other foundations even though I don’t usually set it with powder. I love that it doesn’t look cakey and really requires a minimal amount of product.

Although this works great on my normal/dehydrated skin, I think it would work even better on oilier skins which struggle to keep makeup looking fresh all day long especially as it is oil free.

I’d go as far as to say it’s the perfect product if you are looking for a last all day foundation but for me I tend to like a little more of a glow which I think this foundation doesn’t offer, but that’s it’s only downfall.

Sadly due to a technology malfunction I have no photos of me wearing but I’ll feature it in a post soon (hopefully tomorrow).

All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation launches on 1st Feb nationwide and retail for £33- will you be trying it?

There has been quite a big move towards pencils and crayons in the last few years in the beauty industry and I can totally see why. They’re easy to carry in your handbag, don’t require brushes, the textures are usually beautifully creamy and I could almost do my whole face with just crayons and pencils (apart from foundation and mascara)

The reason I started thinking about this blog post was because of the Nudestix I tried a while back, although I think they’re all quite nice the concealer stuck out to me the most and I’ve had it in my handbag since. The Nudestix Concealer Pencil is creamy and easy to apply, I never apply too much and can just use my fingers to blend it all in. 

Another product which is permanently in my handbag and which I find really helps me look more awake after a long day other than concealer is the Benefit High Brow. It’s designed for the brow bone and it’s great for this but I also love it in the inner corner of my eye or warmed up and blended on to my cheeks. The colour is great and it saves me carrying around highlighters which I always manage to shatter. 

Pencils we all use are eyeliners and brow pencils- there are so many great ones that I’m not at all too fussy as long as they’re pigmented and creamy. I love the Urban Decay 24/7 Liners and the Rimmel Liners, they’re just the best! 

Everyone has jumped on the Clinique Chubby Stick bandwagon but I still think Clinique does it best although the Revlon ones do come a close second. However when I am after something a little brighter, more pigmented and often matte I reach for either Topshop Bullets or Nars Lip Pencils. I also love Clinique Chubby Sticks Cheek Colour which are great if you are into cream blush! 

I don’t think I’ve quite mastered the eyeshadow crayon and usually do finish off with a shadow on top or through the crease but I do love the Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows. 

What are your essential pencils/crayons? 

Nike Air Max £95
I mentioned in my July Favourites how much I love my Nike Air Max’s and I’ve been lusting over another pair for a while. I love these ones as they’re simply black and grey with a slight pop of pink but a nice quite subtle pink.

Bourjois Bronzing Powder £7
I have two of the new variations of this bronzer but would love to try the original, I have no idea how I’ve never tried this Cult product.

Chantecaille Future Skin £58
It’s probably quite clear why this is still on my wishlist and I haven’t purchased it. I tried it on in Space NK and it made my skin look so much better however at almost £60 I think this product will be living in my wishlist for a while longer!

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella £18
I recently saw someone wearing this and it looked amazing, it’s the perfect colour for any season and any occasion. Can’t wait to finally add this to my collection!

Nars Creamy Concealer £22
Everyones been raving about this concealer and now that I have finally added the Laura Mercier Camouflage Concealer to my makeup bag this is the next one I want to try.

Zara Leather Court £49.99
I’m on the hunt for the perfect pair of nude pointy shoes and these seem perfect!

Zara Mini Shopper £29.99
Sadly I don’t need another handbag but how perfect is this Zara shopper?! I would love it for everyday wear and even to take to the beach!

NARS have just released their new range of Dual Intensity Eyeshadows which have a unique texture, wearable colour, are beautifully reflective and can be used both wet and dry!

The range is made up of 12 shades which can be applied dry for a more sheer application or wet for a more opaque intense colour which I love!

Even when applied wet this dry to a powdery finish but is more intense than if applied dry. Although the pigment is okay when dry I think the product really shines when it is wet!

The shadows are easy to work with and last all day, you can even mix them from dry to wet!  These are particularly perfect for a smokey eye, although I wish there was a perfect bronze shade in the range.

I love the packaging as it’s secure and compact but still looks sleek, the magnet also means that the lid will always be firmly shut.

These are currently exclusive to Broadwick Street Space NK however will be going into Nationwide Space Nk’s soon before hitting all Nars Counters on 1st August and retail for £21.

Since over the last week I have shaded some of my favourite cult products I thought today I would share the products I have never tried but are loved by the beauty world. You’ll notice that a lot of them are highend products which is probably why I haven’t picked them up but some are simply products that I haven’t got round to trying. 

Lorac Pro Eyeshadow Palette (Available here)
This palette is actually not available in the UK which is probably why I still don’t have it but it looks amazing! I’ve heard there is a very similar SmashBox Palette but theres something about it that makes me want this one more!

Tweezerman Tweezers (Available here)
I feel like these Tweezers and the Shu Uemura Eyelash curlers are two beauty must haves but this one I don’t have. Although they’re a little pricey for a pair of Tweezers I guess it would be a one-off purchase and I’ve even heard that you can get them sharpened, I think I’m just waiting for a good offer to come along.

Essie Fiji Nail Polish (Available here)
With the more affordable range of Essie Polishes about this is actually not an expensive product but it’s a product that I always seem to forget to buy but as it’s love by so many and seem to be a perfect summer colour I will be picking it up soon!

Nars Laguna Bronzer (Available here)
For years I hadn’t tried Nars Laguna Bronzer or Orgasm blush but I was gifted the blush last year so it’s only Laguna I need to try now. It’s probably the most famous/loved bronzer ever, how I haven’t tried it I don’t know!

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage (Available here)
I haven’t really tried much at all from Laura Mercier but since so many people to this products, this has gone to the top of my wishlist.

Alpha H Liquid Gold (Available here)
I actually thought this was far more expensive than it actually it is but so many people swear by it, now that I know that it’s only £31.50 (not that expensive as far as skincare goes) I will be picking up a bottle soon.

Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder (Available here)
I’ve held this in my hands many a time but never actually bought it and I am not sure why. Yes, it isn’t cheap but there are few things that I think make a bigger difference to my face than a contour. That said is it actually better than other contours, I’m pretty happy with my Illamasqua Sculpting duo.

Tom Ford Lipstick (Available here)
Ultimate luxury lipstick, haven’t felt able to justify the price but I will!

Beauty Blender (Available here)
I’ve tried all the imitations going and really fallen for the Real Techniques one but it does leave me wondering if this is even better.

Mac Fix+ (Available here)
This has just always slipped past me but I have a suspicion I would love it!

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation (Available here)
You may want to take a seat for this one. I have never ever tried Bobbi Brown. Yes, I am probably the only women and definitely the only Beauty Blogger to not have tried this well loved brand. Nothing has ever really caught my eye but I know the Skin Foundation is a favourite so it’ll probably be what I pick up.

Mason and Pearson Brush
I’ve wanted one of these ever since I can remember but they are so expensive and I’m just not sure that they’re worth the money, would love to know if you have one in the comments.
