Discovering... Space NK


Discovering - because I have only recently found out that Space NK runs a reward scheme with a points card; well, I'm sure the majority of you already know about this but I only discovered this recently, reading blogs.
Mainly, I do my beauty shopping in Debenhmas because they always have promotions on and - most importantly - they have a loyalty card.
Then, until now, I would buy brands that they don't sell - Laura Mercier, Nars - in House of Fraser or John Lewis. Now, I will definitely go to Space NK since, at the same price, you also get points... meaning money off in the future!

Anyway, for my first purchase I got Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Deauville - Light 4.
This is my current favourite foundation and it's in my maybe list for the wedding.
I'm still not 100% sure as I have a couple of other contenders that I really like too but I don't think I can buy Nars in Italy so I got myself a bottle.
I'm also thinking I may tan a wee bit so I'm keeping a sample of Santa Fe - which is also a good match for me - to mix it with... just in case I need to go a bit darker.
I apply it with Real Techniques Buffing Brush or only with my fingers - it's a joy to work with and the finish result is just beautiful. It last a long time on me, even without setting - actually, I prefer not to set it with powder and let the glow coming through.
***update: I did use this foundation for my wedding... full products list coming soon :)***






my hand is not the perfect place to swatch the colour as it's much darker, apparently, than my face...
... but it blends really well and it's a perfect match on my face.

Have you tried this foundation? Do you like it? :)
