Urban Decay All Nighter Make- Up Setting Spray £21 / Barry M Flawless Brightening (Purple) and Colour Correction (Green) Primer £5.99 / Bareminerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydration Gel Cream in Vanilla £26 / Maybelline 24hour colour tattoo cream eyeshadow in Pink Gold £4.99

I seem to have bought so much make-up over the last few months that I am starting to seriously run out of room (oops!) I really need to stop buying things but I love trying new products out. Because of this I thought i’d do a post on some of the items which I have bought over the latter part of this year and are dominating my make-up routine.

Urban Decay All Nighter Make- Up Setting Spray

I actually have no idea how I coped without a setting spray. When I first read about them I thought there’s no way something like this can work but I gave in and bought a bottle when I hit up Sephora on my trip to the States and i’ve not looked back. The setting spray is spritzed over your face from an arms reach away once your make-up is complete and is designed to stop your make-up running or coming off as quickly. I have worn this before big nights out, day festivals and days when i’ve been out from 9am until midnight and it has made a noticeable difference on how long my make-up seems to have stayed on, and not just stayed on, but stayed on well.

I did worry when I first used it that it would make my make-up run when I first sprayed it but it didn’t and it was lovely and refreshing. Pretty much anytime i’m going out or know it’s going to be a long day I use this and it’s one of the best things I own.

I go through phases with eyeshadow and at the moment I seem obsessed and have been buying new ones left right and centre. I’d heard great things about the colour tattoo eyeliner but i’ve never really got on too well with cream shadows before, I used to find that they sat in the creases on my eyes. But because this one was only £4.99 and a really nice gold pink colour I thought why not and I have been really surprised with it.

It might be because I now use eyeshadow primer (how I ever coped without it I won’t know!) but this colour doesn’t stick to my creases and really is as long lasting as it’s namesake. I have tried this to 20 hours and it stayed on amazingly well so I assume another 4 hours wouldn’t have much difference! The colour pigment is beautiful and it glides on so well that i’m now tempted to try out some of their other colours.

primer and complexion rescue


Barry M Flawless Brightening (Purple) and Colour Correction (Green) Primer 

It was the colour of these primers which caught my eye. I’ve got a few blushers which use different colours for different skin irritations and the primer works in the same way. The green is meant to alleviate redness in your skin, while the purple is meant to brighten dull skin. I have used these a number of times and have noticed brighter (or less red) skin depending on which one i’ve used which was a pleasant surprise.

Because i’m used to using higher end brand primers such as Smashbox’s Photo Finish and Benefit’s Porefessional I wasn’t expecting to love these budget versions so much but they seem to work for me just as well as the one’s 3-4 times their price. They glide on, they aren’t oily and they seem to hold my foundation better. Thumbs up Barry M!

Sometimes I want some coverage but I don’t want to wear full on foundation or anything, this is especially so when i’m at work and I know all i’m going to do in the evening is head to the gym. Why waste masses of make-up? I decided to pick up Bareminerals Complexion Rescue Gel for those in between days as it is very light coverage. This seems to hydrate my skin pretty well and there is a little colour but perhaps a little less than i’d like.

While it doesn’t offer a huge amount of coverage (you’d want to use concealer for specific areas) it does feel nice and makes me feel a little less naked when I head outside. Definitely something to look at if you like opting for the fresher/ lighter faced look.
