Leighton Denny/Fragrance Debut 'Light & Dark'

Many of you will know the name from his infamous and loved nail polish ranges, Mr Leighton Denny is the latest celebrity to launch his signature fragrance into the perfume world. 
Leighton Denny Light & Dark Eau Du Parfum 70ml
I've been reviewing his new scent and I have to say it does smell delicious! 

Light To dark is fit for just that, it's a fragrance that'll take you through from day to night. 

The top notes are mandarin, grapefruit, white pepper and peach over middle notes of gardenia, jasmine and rose, this is slightly floral with an underlying hnt of musk, it's not normally a fragrance I'd go for but I have to say it does smell really nice. 

My only criticism is the staying power, it just doesn't last on the skin, I find this with so many celeb perfumes, they don't last long which is a real shame. 

You can buy Leighton's Light To Dark via QVC now it's on a special offer price of £34.50 for 70ml, which is a real steal.

Clarins/Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base

I love a good primer, wouldn't dream of applying my foundation without one, and my eyes are no exception. I often wear eye primers on their own as I don't tend to wear eye shadow during the day, I've been reviewing this Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base from Clarins* It's a smooth creamy formula, which works to help disguise any imperfections on your delicate eyelid area and it provides a solid base for your eye make up, it doesn't crease or slip all day and if you just want a natural look it's great on it's own. 
This is from Clarins Autumn Make Up Collection. 

It only comes in one shade and I'm assuming it'll be suitable for everyone, and thanks to Clarins 3D Pigment particles it gives a real lightening effect to the eye lid area, and I just wear it on it's own day to day. 
You can see the little mole on the back of my hand which gives a great indication of the coverage this offers,  if you've got age spots, veins or any imperfections your concerned about then this is a must have for you. 
I've also tested it on my eyelids to show you the before and after too. I have no mascara or anything on here so do excuse the blank canvas but I wanted you to see the full effects of the base on it's own.....

The top picture shows no product and the bottom shows the base applied. 

You can grab this on the Clarins Website right now!, it retails at £22 and will last you ages as you need the tiniest amount per application. 

Do you use primer before applying shadow?
