Hello! I am very excited to share my first ever concealer. Prior, I had been using just BB cream and was frustrated that certain blemishes just would not get covered – even if I layered. My skin idiosyncracy is that on my left cheek, I have had this small red dot for … as long as I can remember. Quite annoying! I knew I wanted to get a concealer and I knew I wanted it to be drugstore because I’d only be using it in limited quantities so who cares. =P
I love that this comes in a small package. Helen and I were complaining about how much it sucks that certain products come in such large quantities because well, we get bored easily. We want to try new things! And this way, each individual item can be cheaper!
I used this today on top of BB cream, then used the Lovely ME:EX cushion blusher from the Face Shop (in color, Bori). Finished with a dusting of Makeup Forever HD powder. The warm ochre tones of the concealer meshed well with the pale glow of the BB cream. Combined with the light pink blusher (which I have posted about HERE), it resulted in a natural, healthy look that I really liked.
Now I have a question for you. This might be personal preference, BUT recently, I read on a beauty editor’s blog that it is a big mistake to put on concealer first. She really got on her soapbox and stated that concealer should be put on AFTER foundation. What do you think/do?
This concealer is a bit darker than my BB cream (which I use as foundation) so I actually like to put it on top. It creates a natural looking flush, like a tanned person’s face after jogging. =P
PS – I should also add that this brand has many, many shades and to find your own, there is a clear pull out card by the display with little translucent squares of color. You hold it over your wrist, and whichever one disappears/blends into your skin is the one you pick. I like this method. ^_^
