Splurge Friday…. new feature

Dear fashionistas,

I am starting a new feature and I’d love to hear your thoughts on it…. it’s called Splurge Friday.

One of the great things about being so careful with the money I spend on fashion and beauty is that when I see something wonderful I can spend a little more than other people might be able to. Of course, it’s worth recognising quality when you see it, and by saving on pennies I occasionally splurge on pounds! I thought you might like to see which I things I deem worthy of this carefully squirrelled cash so once a week I’ll be blogging something costing more than £5 and you can decide if you think I made the right choice!

This week will be….

This is the first time I’d tried primer but their advertising campaign made such big claims (improving uneven skintone, blotches, blemishes, redness, and leaving the skin luminous) that I just had to try it. Now, I couldn’t live without a primer and this is certainly my first choice for the moment.

It’s a pearly colour and lasts really well – I just use one pump for my whole face. Once it’s applied my skin feels really satiny and smooth. It makes my makeup go on a lot smoother and stops it clinging to dry patches or wrinkles. I also wear it even if I’m not wearing makeup though, as I do think it calms the look of my skin. As I have very fair delicate skin (Scandinavian blood!) it can be quite red and blotchy so I love this product for improving that. Whether it’s making life long dramatic changes I’m not sure, but I liked it enough to buy about a years supply!
