The Base Stories with Glo & Ray

You all know I have an ongoing love affair with Glo & Ray and they're gradually taking over my make up collection so today I'm posting about the primer and foundation duo that haven't left my face. When I talked about my Perfect Base Duo in May I didn't think anything else would come along and knock it off it's pedestal until I tried the Nebulae Foundation and the CC Primer.

The Nebulae foundation comes in a sleek, matte pump action bottle which makes it so much easier to use. I hate foundations that don't come with a pump, they're too messy and you end up wasting so much. With this foundation, one pump is enough to cover your entire face and it adjusts to your skin tone leaving a natural, dewy glow. It's packed full of moisturising properties that hydrate and nourish your skin while giving a light to medium coverage which makes it perfect for the warmer weather. I love how this makes my skin look dewy, healthy and slightly blurred which makes me feel less conscious of the large pores I think I have. 

I'm Smashbox primer girl through and through and the CC Primer is a completely different texture to what I'm use to but I really like it. A big change from my silicone based primers but oh so good. The colour correction primer is designed to improve texture and prepare skin for foundation. It's a light silky liquid with micro shine particles that help reduce the appearance of pores and even the skin tone while also keeping skin hydrated throughout the day and looking brighter. Used alongside the CC Foundation it's meant to leave a flawless finish but I'm yet to try them together as it works so well with the Nebulae foundation. 

If you're looking for a new foundation for the months ahead and a non silicone based primer you should really take a look at Glo & Ray and while you're there make sure you check out their eyeliners, lipsticks, blushes... I could go on! I really don't have a bad word to say about this brand and I still can't wait to try more! Keep your eyes peeled Friday for exciting giveaway to win some Glo & Ray products for yourself!

  1. I enjoy both silicone and non silicone based primers (right now I'm so happy to have the Hourglass Veil Mineral primer back in my collection). I'll check out what Glo & Ray have to offer. Have never tried any of their products and don't know about the shipping options but will investigate. :-)
