Hello Gorgeous!

I am back with a new post for you my dear make up lovers.

There are some days the mirror is my worst enemy.
Without saying a single word, it is there to shout out loud the dark truth: my skin looks shit, complexion is a nightmare and I don't have under eye bags, I have luggages.

These are the days I am on a mission to find a new concealer.

I wanted to try something with an industrial NASA approved strength, able to make my nutella abuse induced spots and pigmentations vanish.

I wanted to try the Make Up Forever Ultra HD Concealer but it's too expensive to be bought without testing the shade so I will have to wait until the end of September when A brand new MUFE corner will open in Debenhams in Manchester.

I was browsing the NYX stand in Boots in Manchester Arndale and here we go, I found 2 good ones.

What I use here is a "double concealers-colour correcting technique":

- First, you apply a concealer with a colour correct effect, specific to address your main concern, so basically what you want to conceal.

You will use:

    Green to counteract redness
    Apricot to brightening dark under eye circles
    Lilac to counteract yellow dull skin
    Yellow  to hide pinkish areas

- Second, you apply a concealer more similar to your skintone/foundation to even your skintone.

For the first step I chose NYX Dark Circle Concealer  (£6.50) in shade 03.

This little pot can make miracles.
It has got a full coverage effect and its orangy tones works on masking the dark under eye areas.
It's a soft paste infused with coconut oil, I apply it with a duo fiber concealer brush with little tapping movements.

It's incredibly smooth and easy to work.
I have used the orange concealer from Laura Mercier and believe me, the NYX one is ten times more easy to blend and creases less.

It does come in 4 shades, I bought shade 03 medium and for your reference I am MAC NC30.

For the second step I bought NYX Gotcha Covered (£5.50) in shade 03 beige.

This concealer is a thick dense paste with a full coverage effect that will make you scream BINGO!
It is exactly what I was looking for.
I apply it with a small precision concealer brush and then blend it with the tip of my beauty blender or a fluffy brush.

I set everything with powder and here we go, camera ready!

The full coverage effect will last all day with no creasing or smudging.
If it is particularly hot or humid a bit of setting powder will probably help.

It comes in 10 shades and it's an incredibly good concealer at a very friendly price.

These are some before/after pictures.




Verdict: Seriously good concealers, totally recommended.

I will talk to you soon!

Good Night
