Products Not For Me No. 1

I would love it if every single product I had was perfect for me... but sadly it's not a perfect world. I've tried each of these but they are just not for me. Here they are and why I don't love them.

3 Favourite Concealers: Urban Decay, MUFE, Maybelline


My three favourite concealers right now:

1. Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Med-Light Neutral - I use this mainly for my undereyes. It has a very light and thin consistency, just like how it's described to be "weightless". It still gives great coverage and it has some light diffusing properties, making the undereyes slightly brighter. Once it's set it doesn't budge or fade throughout the day.

2. Makeup Forever Full Cover Extreme Camouflage Cream - I use this mainly to cover up any spots. Even for big breakouts it completely covers up the redness. The consistency is thicker so a bit of time is needed to blend it in for a natural but full coverage. I unfortunately don't remember which shade I got and it doesn't say on the packaging. :( I'll have to figure out which shade I need when the times comes to replace it.

3. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Sand - This is my favourite all-around concealer. I would take this single concealer on a trip and it'll do its job with both undereyes and spots. It doesn't last as long as the above two concealers and by the end of the day the dark undereyes or redness of spots start to emerge. For a drugstore concealer it is a great option though!

Do you have any concealer recommendations for me?

Until next time, Des

Review: Foreo Luna 2 (Combination Skin)

I have a manual nylon exfoliating brush that I sometimes use to help cleanse and exfoliate my face. I didn't particularly see an improvement so I never felt inclined to use it often. However, this little blue sucker does the same thing as that brush and more... and I did see my face become more firm with a brighter complexion. Let me introduce you to Foreo Luna 2.
