NEW: Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer

I would go as far as to say that I'm pretty much a concealer junkie, so when I saw this concealer flashing itself at me in Superdrug, I was instantly drawn to it - no word of a lie. 

This concealer retails for £5.49 at Superdrug.



Pros:
★ Full coverage 
★ Conceals under eyes amazingly well
★ Brightens under eyes, great for if you have darkness

Cons:
★ The formula of the concealer clings onto dry patches, make sure your skin/under eyes are well moisturised before use
★ I have the second to darkest shade, yet I still feel that I could go for the darkest shade because it brightens my under-eyes a bit too much

This concealer is a thick textured, full coverage concealer. Overall, I have mixed thoughts on this concealer. Some sections of my skin are quite dry at the moment, and the concealer just doesn't look nice on the dry areas, so I've avoided using it until my skin becomes a bit more hydrated again. 

I found that this product concealed fantastically under my eyes, I naturally have darkness in the inner corners and inner underneath section of my eyes, and this product did a great job at concealing and brightening, I did find that it brightened a bit too much for my liking, so I might try the next shade up. It did crease a little bit under my eyes, most likely because it's such a thick consistency. If you like the bright under-eyes/highlighting technique then you may really like this product, I personally like the more subtle concealing technique. 

This concealer is definitely worth trying out, just make sure to choose the right shade because I'm always the lightest shade when it comes to base make-up, so I'm quite surprised that I'm the darkest shade in this concealer range. There are 3 different shades in this whole range. 

Have you tried out this product, what are your thoughts on it? If not, what's your favourite concealer?

The Brush Egg

This little gadget really attracted me for a number of reasons; I'm lazy when it comes to cleaning my brushes and my fingers always feel like they're going to freeze off when I'm cleaning them. Now the best part of this little tool is that it's £1.38. Say whaaattt?! 





As you can see from the picture above, it's like a little glove for your fingers. The ridges of the glove cleanse your brushes very well. I'm usually left with beigy-stains of foundation on my brushes (when I clean the brushes with my hands) but ever since I've been using this, it's made my brushes look so clean!



As you can see, the brush hairs look like how they did when I first bought them. It's incredible. It's also a great travelling product because it's so small and compact and it's also a really quick way to deep cleanse your brushes, which can usually take a lot of time. I really do recommend this product, especially if you hand wash your brushes, sometimes the tap water can get too cold/too hot and it can be rather unbearable, this little glove keeps your fingers nice and warm, haha!
