nsm beauty: city slickers! Limited edition London beauty buys …

 That Gal Benefit

You know I can’t resist a bit of themed beauty (and I know many nonstopmamas are with me!!), so here are a couple of London tributes I’m loving right now!

Don’t you think Benefit’s classic That Gal (£21.50) make-up primer looks FAB with it’s special edition London makeover? (Although I still love the New York original!).

Another standout: Jo Malone London‘s limited edition London Landmark boxes …

The classic cream and black boxes will be individually decorated by in-store artists at Jo Malone London from 27 July to 12 August, free of charge!

Talk about snagging an original!!

    These look utterly fab, especially the Benefit, I love their packaging; all still looks fresh and non-gimmicky. I know I am an utter numpty, but what is a make-up primer, is it like a foundation??

    SO glad you love, too!!! No, not an obvious question at all!! :) Primers are FAB pre-base, so before your foundation or tinted moisturiser, to just smooth things out, add brightness and improve overall tone. Make-up goes on (or rather glides on!) more smoothly, lasts a bit longer, looks a look fresher and really makes a difference. They’re particularly fab post late nights (up with little ones, say!! :) ) and in the evening, if you’re going out and it’s been a looooong day – cleanse, smooth on a primer then apply your make-up and you’ll feel like you’ve just slept hours. Sort of. XX
