Contents: My Face, with Love Cloth

So if you have been following my blog you may have seen my previous 'Contents: My Face post' where I delved deep into the depths of my own daily make up routine and make up bag to show you exactly what makes up my face most days.

This time it is the turn of the lovely Kim who is an amazing fashion blogger GO SEE, and just also happens to be my best friend, ("isn't she loooovely, isn't she wonderful"- we sing a lot)  Kim has kindly agreed to play my little game, so here’s a reminder of the rules...

List everything that is used on a regular basis in your make up routine
Pick 3 top items that you would recommend to anyone

 Kim's top 3 items:

Elizabeth Arden Eight hour Cream - I use this everywhere and anywhere. For someone who always wears lipstick, it’s great for keeping my lips soft. I also use it on dry skin, holiday burnt skin or cuts… you name it, I’ve put it on it.

Nars Sheer Glow – I’m not one for really heavy full coverage foundation, so this is perfect for me. Its quite moisturising and doesn’t feel heavy. I’ve sampled all the colours around fiji but keep coming back to it as it has a yellowish tone that suits my skin.

Revlon Lipsticks - They have a really good price point for amazing quality lipstick, lasting well and are highly pigmented. I think matte is my favourite for every day wear just making sure my lips are soft and sometimes even working in it with a small lip brush.

Kims favourite brand:

Nars: after buying my first product about 2 years ago I really fell in love with the brand. It can be quite expensive but it lasts so much longer than any cheaper products I’ve owned.  Definitely think my next stop is to sample the lipstick, cant believe I haven’t already… but a few nice spaceNK vouchers from Christmas have “Nars” written all over them.

Cost: To fill kims make up bag costs approx £244, she is certainly a lover of the luxury brand.

Love Nicci xx


  1. In my shopaholic defence, a good few where gifts/spent with vouchers lol (Love shari's debut in the corner)

    1. Its ok Kim you are forgiven, you can never spend too much on a beautiful face
