New Beauty Buys

Happy Sunday! I picked up a couple of new beauty bits in the last few weeks so thought I'd review them on the blog!

NARS Sheer Glow - when my beloved Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua ran out, I decided to take the plunge and go for something new! I've heard so much about NARS Sheer Glow that I just had to try it out. I went for the shade Mont Blanc, which matches up perfectly to my current skin shade, but will probably be too light for summer. Compared to my Chanel favourite, I find this foundation to be pretty full coverage. I think technically it'd be classed as 'medium' coverage, but I do find it slightly heavy. It is glowy, totally evens out the skin and does stay put for most of the day, so I can't really fault it! I do think Chanel VA will always be number one though...

Make Up Forever Hydration Primer - I picked this up in Sephora in Copenhagen - I wanted to get something I couldn't buy back here in Edinburgh. The primer claims to hydrate and plump up dehydrated skin, and allow make up to go on super smoothly and stay for hours. I don't usually use a primer but I wanted to give it a go. Although I've been using this for a few weeks, I don't feel like I have too much to say about it. I do keep going back to it, and I think it makes my make up last longer when I wear it, but at the same time I don't think I miss it too much when I don't use it. So a bit of a 'meh' product - I don't think I'll be repurchasing, but never say never!

Urban Decay Make Up Chill Setting Spray - this has been raved about by so many bloggers and I do like a good facial mist so I wanted to try it out and picked it up in Duty Free. This spray has 'temperature control technology', designed to chill the the surface of your make up to keep things in place that little bit longer. Again, setting sprays aren't something I use regularly, but when I do I go for MAC Fix Plus. I really really enjoying the UD offering at the moment, I like the idea of it 'chilling' my make up, especially as the temperatures are beginning to heat up!

Have you tried any of these products? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
