Review: Nivea Express Hydration Primer

Hello, Im back today with a review of the Nivea Express Hydration Primer which is new into stores. I saw an advert for it the other day and it really intrigued me so when I was in Superdrug yesterday I picked it up.

I purchased mine from Superdrug (Cant find it on the website) for £4.99. Im not sure if this is an introductory price or if it was launched into shops at full price.
Before I purchased this I moisturised in the morning and then used a Rimmel primer on my psoriasis patches on my T Zone. This primer claims to moisturise and provide a smooth base for effective make up application. It also says that makeup will stay put on your face for longer.
The primer is enriched with natural Almond Oil  and Calendula extract. This adds to the smell. The smell is actually quite strong but its not off putting and I actually quite like it. I can still smell it on the back of my hand from when I was swatching for the pictures but Im wearing it on my face now and I cant smell it.
When I applied it this morning I used it without moisturiser and just did this and my foundation. Being honest, this has given the best makeup application that Ive had in a long long while. My psoriasis hasnt shown up at all and my makeup is still going strong although Im a bit oily. Like it claims (and from the swatch picture above) it is really light and non greasy. It leaves my skin nice and smooth but without looking like an oil slick (I suffer from really oily skin and sometimes moisturiser just adds to the problem).
Another positive to this which is a problem with other primers is that they feel really silliconey. Im not sure if sillicone is an ingredient in this primer but if it is then it isnt obviously so.
All in all I would highly recommend this primer to anyone on the lookout for something that leaves a nice smooth base without feeling like a mask on the face. Its cheap cheerful and reaches far higher than the expectations I had for it!
Have you tried this?

Watch Lust

The watch that I currently wear all the time is some cheap one off ebay with a plain black strap. I like it because it has a vintage vibe and isnt too bulky. One day my battery went, and in the process of trying to get the stiff back off of it my dad proceeded to break the winder. He managed to use a screwdriver to set the time (while also setting it 5 minutes slow) and then glued the winder back in. This satisfied me for the time being but with the clocks going back at the end of the month I am now on the hunt for a new timepiece because Ill keep forgetting to take an hour and 5 minutes off of what my watch says.

Anyways, now that ive got the story out of the way. Ive been scouring ebay for a new watch in the same sort of style but none have come up. I also really like the Michael Kors rose gold ones but I think that theyre too bulky for me so I wouldnt really like to wear one.

I love rose gold so when I saw this it was a mixture of everything I love in a watch.
The Storm website has this watch down for £84.99 but I found it on the H Samuel website for £74.99. I love it, rose gold with a black strap and numbers on the front instead of roman numerals.
Im so tempted with this but after forking out £80 on a leather jacket the other day I dont think my bank account would appreciate me!
Maybe I should by a cheapo, horrible thing on ebay and hope that Santa will deliver this to me at christmas?

Review: Barry M Lipstick in Shade 160

Hello girlies I hope you are all ok. Today im back with a review post on a new lipstick that I purchased to where when I went out on Saturday night.

My outfit on Saturday was simple, my maroon primark wedges and a grey River Island dipped hem jersey dress. To correspond with the shoes I thought I would dip my toe into the waters of the autumnal plum shade lipstick.

My choice of shade was the Barry M lipstick in shade 160 (available at Superdrug for £4.49 - However I cant find the link online).

The colour in the bullet looked really daunting to me at first as Im normally someone who goes for pale pinks and my lips but better shades. When I swatched it in store it was still a dramatic colour but looked more wearable.
These two pictures were taken in slightly different lights which is why they do not look the same. I would say that the picture on the left was more true to life. A dark plummy ish colour with a visible hint of red.
I dont have a picture of me wearing it but colour payoff is good when it goes over my natural lip colour as opposed to a colourless hand!
The price is good for a high street brand, as I said the colour is lovely and it glides onto the lips really smoothly. It isnt drying at all so it gets a big thumbs up from me.
With regards to the packaging, some might say that the pink is a bit tacky but Im personally not bothered by it. The pink makes it stand out from the other lipsticks I own. The bullet does feel smaller than other products so im not sure if this is because there is less product or theyre just made to be more compact.

This was my first Barry M lip colour and I am really pleased with the product. Id definitely buy another colour from the range!
Do you own any Barry M lipsticks?

Hello girlies. I'm so sorry for not blogging in what feels like an age. I've finally got my head round everything and I'm ready and raring to blog!

To easy myself back in gently I've got a picture of my current nails. They're false nails from Superdrug, however not sure which make. I put them on on Saturday for my BNO with the girls.

They're lasting well and only one has fallen off so far!

I'll be back again soon for some more in depth posts!
