The Best Concealer (That I Have) Ever (Tried)

I was excited to run out of the previous concealer I was using as I knew exactly what I was going to replace it with. I’ve heard so much praise for the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I got the brightener/illuminator shade and it absolutely, 100% lives up to the hype. When I applied it under one eye and showed Kevin, even he was amazed at the difference, remarking that one eye looked bright and wide-awake, while the other one looked like I hadn’t slept very well.

The product is a pinkish shade that blends super smoothly into the skin. While it does crease a bit by the end of the day, I don’t know if there is a concealer that doesn’t. As this has a brightening effect, I wouldn’t use this on other areas of my face, but honestly, I feel like when I apply this under my eyes, my whole face looks better for it, spots and all.

Any product blowing your mind these days?

A New Plant and an Old Concealer

Just wrapped up a four-day weekend in which I slept a lot, ate a lot of chocolate, and finished up season 2 of Gilmore Girls.

I also finally visited Shelmerdine Garden Centre, which was magnificent, and bought this wee aloe vera plant to add to my collection. My Mom had these when I was growing up and I remember how useful they were for various skin ailments. Looking forward to re-potting it and watching it thrive.

I also finally (FINALLY) finished this Revlon Photo Ready stick concealer. It was recommended by¬†Emily from Beauty Broadcast, which was the first beauty vlog I watched. She had it in her top products of 2011 and so I went out and purchased it and have been using it since. I probably should have thrown it out years ago. I don’t even know if you can still get this, but I would recommend it for light concealing.

Buy any plants or finish any make-up recently?
