Space NK Haul - Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Himalia and Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Watermelon/Moonstone

For a while there beauty shopping was getting a bit Ho Hum, there were tons of amazing brands out there but they were quite hard for us Dublin girls to just pop out to the shops and pick them up. In the last couple of months Grafton Street has had a little bit of a makeup revolution first there is a rather fab beauty hall in Marks and Spencer, Brown Thomas re-opened its fabulous beauty hall with CHARLOTTE FRICKIN TILBURY and a few doors up the road we have the joy of the newly opened Space NK.  

If you have never had the good fortune to visit a Space NK you need to change that fairly quickly, there is one in Belfast and its my first stop whenever I visit Belfast (who needs to visit the Titanic Museum when you have a Space NK?).  Before we had our own proper shop on Grafton Street there was a small concession in Harvey Nicks in Dundrum with a small selection of products.

When you walk into Space NK your greeted with skincare, lots of skincare.  Some are names of brands you have seen in magazines some are names you have never heard before.  The shop is split up that one side has the  "scientific" if you like skin care and the other side has the more "organic/natural skincare".  When you venture further into the shop your greeted by perfumes, hair care and at the back some fantastic beauty brands like Becca, By Terry and Kevyn Aucoin.  

One of the wonderful things about Space NK is their very lovely and very well trained staff know about ALL the brands (mind boggling when you see the full range of brands on offer) so if your looking for a lipstick they are not just selling you a lipstick from a certain brand, they are looking for the best product to suit your needs.  

Space NK is one of those shops that's lovely to browse in an discover new products.  I cant pass by without having a little look.  Recently I picked up two products Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Himalia and Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Watermelon/Moonstone both on my list both costing €27.00.
I have been waiting a while to get my hands on a Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle it was hard for me to pick a colour but I finally went with Watermelon/Moonstone.  Each pot contains a cheek color mixed with a highlighter shade (which smells a little fruity).  They leave a delicate highlighted shade on the cheeks.  Its very simple to use and leaves your cheeks gleaming.

I also knew that I wanted a Nars Dual Intensity Eye shadow again it was hard to pick just one but I went with a browny/taupe in the shade Himalia.  You can use these shadows wet/dry for different intensity (or dual intensity...see what they did there).  They are very pretty soft and pigmented eye shadows.  I like to wash the lid with dry colour and then go into the crease with some wet product which creates 2 different shades using the one shadow.  €27.00 is very spendy for a single eye shadow so I think I would purchase another Beach Tint quicker.

On the left is the shadow dry and on the right is the shadow wet - adding it wet adds a bit of dimension and dept to the shadow.  Very pretty either way.

I have been using both products for a very (very) simple clean looking makeup.  

Don't forget when your shopping in Space NK to sign up for their N.dulge card which is their loyalty card.  I seem to have earned €5.00 off my next purchase already so it is well worth signing up. Pin It
