NARS Highlighter in Albatross & Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

So I finally got my hands on a NARS product. I'm loving this highlighter for the past month which I've been using. I haven't gotten around posting this right after I purchased it because I've been heaps busy with Uni and now with all my exams done, I can finally blog again but not too long! If you don't know yet, I'm heading to Melbourne for 12 days to hang out with family, do some shopping and of course 'take a break'. It's literally my 2nd home there and I love shopping there, it's better than Sydney imo. 

Anywho I also grabbed Smashbox Photo Finish Primer (which I will talk about first) which is a god sent product. I hands down will not turn back to any other primer. I previously used Natio & Face of Australia (which are found at Priceline/drugstores etc) and honestly, over time I found no significance towards my face when applied. I don't think there was any holding power but meh, I still continued to use it. 

But, this Smashbox primer is definitely a repurchase. I know this product has silicon so no wonder it holds my make up so well. If you're allergic silicon, stay away. This little 15ml product costed me $16US and of course that's hella pricey but I'm willing to go out of my way to repurchase it. 

Anywho, to the NARS Highlighting Powder in Albatross. I know technically it's classified under blush but meh - same thing! I love it and I don't really find it looking like a disco ball on me like people mentioned. It's awesome and I can't go out without it - I literally carry with me in my little make up kit. I only use a tiny bit of product and it goes a long long way. I mean obviously it will make you look disco ball if you apply heaps... with any highlighter of course. This costed me $27US

Hope you're all doing well and to all of those who finished their exams. I just finished Semester 1 of my 1st Year in IT. YAY! Can't wait to go to Melbourne, my beloved boyfriend is taking me to the airport hehehe. Be back real soon! Also, any suggestions on places to eat at Melbourne? Let me know!

Love, J 


  1. There's mixed feelings about the primer on MUA, but I wonder what you think of its oil control? Its my main concern and nothing has worked very effectively, boo.

    There's a plethora of good feeds in Melbourne and its surrounding suburbs, but if I do recommend anything it'll definitely be waffles from Waffle On on Degraves St! Have fun :)

  2. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
