NP Set Eye Primer Does Not Light My Fire

Happy Saturday ladies!  I need your help in deciding next week’s blog theme.  Please head on over to our Facebook page and vote now.  If there are no votes, I’ll be going on a blog break next week 😛

Anyway, I was clearing out my blog drafts and came across this review I did on NP Set Eye Primer AGES ago which I haven’t posted up yet.  The photos and writing aren’t great but instead of binning it, hopefully it will be helpful for those looking for a review of NP Set Eye Primer.  – 14/7/12

Last year (I wrote this in October 2011), I went into a mad last minute make-up haul frenzy as I frantically searched around for cosmetics for my wedding.  To save money, I did my own wedding make-up  with a helping hand from my sister.  If you have oily lids like me, you must use an eye primer.  It acts a base for eye make-up to maximise pigmentation of eyeshadows and to prevent smudging and creasing of make-up.

I had run out of my HG eye primer (which is Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer – a Korean brand which is impossible to find anywhere!) and with no Urban Decay in Australia, I went hunting in David Jones.  I went to the Lancome counter as Michelle Phan had been banging on about a Lancome primer she uses, but they had nada.  The sales assistant pointed me in the direction of NP Set and without even testing it, I purchased NP Set Eye Primer.

FOTD Challenge : Cleopatra

The lovely Sara-May has been doing a FOTD Challenge on her beauty blog and all of the looks she has created has been amazing.  A number of other beauty bloggers have participated in this too.  Today’s FOTD Challenge is Cleopatra – it was my suggestion so it is only right that I participate, although I did struggle with it.  I kept jabbing my eye!!!  I’ll never be a make-up artist but it’s still fun to play with make-up!

Here’s my take on Cleopatra :-

When I think of Cleopatra, I think of strong brows, bold eyes with thick black eyeliner, sculpted cheeks and red lips.

The eyelashes are from KKCenterHK – EYE’S CHIC 816 Bird Of Paradise Fake Eyelashes*^.  The inner half is criss-cross and the outer half is outrageously long.  They are pretty cool but not suitable for everyday use.
