Nivea Post Shave Balm as a Primer 

Beauty

I am so late on the band wagon with this, I was really reluctant to try it because I really did not think it would work or would help my make up duration. That being said stole my brothers one as he was never using it and put it to the test! 

Once you can get past the smell, I think you’ll love it. Everyone has said how bad it smells, but then again it is men’s skincare and their products are not exactly made for us to love the smell of all the time. Once the product is on your face you cannot even smell it so all is good, no one will ever know you are wearing it! 


One thing which does annoy me about this product is the packaging! It’s so big, bulky and heavy. You could never take this on holiday with you as it would take up most your weight allowance! 


But, let’s get onto the good stuff! 

It is AMAZING, I have so many primers in my collection and yet this Balm is my go to everyday. I have worn it everyday for the past month and I am obsessed with it! My make up lasts 10x longer than with a normal primer which is amazing considering you can pick up this bottle for ¬£2.33 from Superdrug when it’s on offer! It also lasts such a long time as the bottle is huge and a little really goes a long way. 

As I have nearly used up this bottle I picked up another one as I now cannot bare to be without it. If you have not tried it you should! 

What are your thoughts on it?

Tanya Burr Neutral Ambience Collection Review

Beauty

I was lucky enough to receive the whole of the new collection Tanya Burrs make up. This new collection is called the Neutral Ambience Collection and is absolutly beautiful. There are 2 eye shadow palettes and 2 lipstick. And ofcourse eye shadow palettes and lipsticks are my weakness so I would of ended up buying these anyway. 

So let’s start with the packaging, it’s super pretty as always and this time it feels like it has a summer theme which is perfect because I’m obessed with pineapples and palms. Each of the palettes has a theme.


 The first palette I want to talk about is ‘my paradise’, this is the pineapple themed palette with beautiful rose gold and silver patterns. Obviously I’m drawn to this one straight away as these are my go to shades, shimmery coppery brown tones perfect for he every day look. There are 3 shimmery shades and one matte shade. The swatches are super pigmented and easy to blend and build up. 

The second palette is called ‘my escape’ and this has more khaki colours which are really unique. In this palette there are 2 shimmery shades and 2 matte shades. Once again they are really pigmented and easy to blend. At first I wasn’t to sure about this palette, but it’s definitely grown on me and I can see myself rocking it on holiday with a tan. 

Next are the lipsticks. There are 2 shades, one matte and the other has more of a satin finish. 

Bear hug is a matte nude, and is a peachy toned brown. Ofcourse this is the perfect everyday lip colour for work, I always wear Pink Cocoa for work so now I can switch it up. These lipsticks are always really hydrating and don’t dry your lips out. 

And the final lip stick is in the shade Sunday Walk, this is a pinky shade and is a lot more sheer than Bear Hug. This would be perfect for a sunny day in the summer for work as it’s still quite subtle but really pretty. 

All of these products are wonderful and I love wearing Tanya Burr Cosmetics make up on a daiy basis as it’s such good quality for the price. 

Thank you so much SLG & Tanya Burr Cosmetics for sending me these products to use! 

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these and what your favourites are.
