Nivea Men Post Shave Balm

I know I am late going on about this but about 3- 4 weeks Ive been using it as my make up primer. I have read and watched videos by YouTube bloggers saying how well your make up stays on all day. I haven’t used it sooner because I was unsure if it would work or have that man smell as its a man product, anyway it was on offer for £2.50 rather than £5.00 so I thought why not just give it a chance. I first opened it and smelt it right away of course :D and its really not strong at all and once its on the face you can’t even smell it. A little bit of it also goes a long way too so this huge bottle can last for months and months. It is runny so remember not to pour it out right away. :) My make up lasts so good with this and not just saying that because everyone else does but its really fab, I don’t get oily or patchy at all. I stopped using it for a few days and used a matte primer instead, now I am going back to this again since its so much better. Once you apply it your face then feels tighter and tacky which is great for the make up to stick too.

I can see why everyone hyped on about this!

Next (Make Me Beautiful) Blusher

I absolutely love Next for shopping, if I need a good handbag and good quality clothes then I always go shop there. :) Anyway Ive seen their make up for a while now but never purchased anything till a few weeks ago. I wouldn’t say their make up is too expensive just not sure why I bought a set of good quality brushes by Next for £8, then this blusher brick was £8 just by itself, very strange. :D I am excited to purchase a few more products like their lipsticks. I have one of their make up quads I bought the same time which I will get round to reviewing as well. Maybe their make up brushes too?

I would use this as a Highlighter and not a blusher because I am not a fan of shimmery blushers neither shimmer bronzers. I like mine to be Matte. I am sooo fussy when it comes to highlighters and I own so many but I have instantly fell in love with the pigment of this :o the first swatch (index finger) is what I have been wearing and it lasts all day. It has a nice soft texture as well so it blends great! One thing I like my highlighter to do is last longer than a few hours and this managed longer. It beats the MUA one I reviewed last month. (Sorry MUA)
