Favourite products at the mo, well they seem to be all the concealers.
Not wanting a heavy base in this warm weather, but subsequently wanting to hide the multitude of sins currently residing on my face, concealer has been my very best friend these past couple of months.
I think a big contribution to this fuzzy feeling towards concealers, are these 2 new finds.
So a lot of people rave about this, and I finally bit the bullet and purchased. I opted for the lightest shade fair/neutral as I wanted to use this particular product not to conceal my skin, but more so to blur and brighten under my eye area. But this product, well it is so much more. After using for a couple of weeks I also find it particularly perfect to highlight the top of my brow, high points of my face, and down my nose.
It has a super light-weight formula, with the most perfect, soft, and precise wand applicator.
The product is creamy, not too thick, (but a tad thicker than some I have tried). A little goes a long way, and It offers good coverage, but still feels light-weight. This shade in particular for me, hides all that I want hidden, whilst brightening the under eye area, in a soft and natural way. The product doesn’t feel heavy, it doesn’t crease, nor does it mask the skin, it works with it, creating a natural, but well concealed finish.
Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer (£7.99)
I am pretty much bowled over by this, I use this under my eyes when I have had a spray-tan, just as there is only 2 shades in the range, and even the lightest is too dark for me. But when I have all the tan on, well it is pretty much perfect.
I love the sponge applicator, a couple of swipes under each eye, and buff out with a beauty blender, hey presto – you are done. A more lightweight and sheerer formula, than the above, it still covers all that needs to be covered, and again with no creasing. When I am not using it under my eyes, it works a dream to combat any redness around my T-Zone, or cover any blemishes. A good all rounder, but please Maybelline 2 shades to choose from, and a product that is so good? More shades, well they most definitely need to be added to this line.
Two different concealers, used for many different things, and both products I currently couldn’t be without.
