Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealers

There has been hype around these Makeup Revolution concealers for a while now. If you haven’t heard about them, where have you been!? I was a little late to join the bandwagon, only picking up my first of these a couple of months ago. Since then I’ve developed a sort of love-hate relationship with them and they fall in and out of my makeup bag … Continue reading Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealers

L’Oreal Perfect Match Perfecting Concealer

I love the L’oreal True Match foundation so thought I would give the concealer a go. This is a great drug-store option if you are looking for a good concealer on a budget. I would say the formula is comparable to the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer which is one of my all-time favourites, so not bad for £6.99! Shade Selection One serious drawback to … Continue reading L’Oreal Perfect Match Perfecting Concealer

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

This is my current concealer obsession; I could not recommend it highly enough. I have been using the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer for almost 6 months now and honestly still reach for it before anything else. Packaging The packaging is light and simple, yet still feels heavy-duty and durable. It has a doe-foot applicator that I know some people dislike as it can be … Continue reading Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

Barry M Flawless Matte Finish Foundation

I feel like drugstore brands are really stepping up their game when it comes to foundations. Barry M is definitely one of these brands. I haven’t bought anything from them in years but their Flawless Matte Finish foundation caught my eye. I was sold on the fact that it is oil-free and hydrating – an ideal formula for my combination to oily skin. I have … Continue reading Barry M Flawless Matte Finish Foundation

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Cheek Illuminator

I love Tanya Burr, so that fact that it took me this long to try anything from her makeup range is shocking form. To be honest though, nothing had caught my attention until she came out with her newest range; ‘Glow your Own Way’. The cheek illuminators were especially intriguing to me, so I picked the shade ‘Forever Summer’ up on my last visit to … Continue reading Tanya Burr Cosmetics Cheek Illuminator
