After hearing that my beloved Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer may  be being discontinued. FYI it’s not. It was just due to popular demand that it was out of stock! Thank goodness! But on a bit of spending spree. Sorry bank! I decided to give the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer a whirl.

Why I bought it?

It’s heavy duty concealer promising to cover up all blemishes and dark circles you may have.

About the product?

There is two shades, One light and one dark. The consistency is very hard and doesn’t look like it would blend easily.

How I use it?

I take my ring finger into the  lightest colour. I use my fingers as they warm up the product which makes it easier to blend. I primarily use this concealer for blemishes and redness. I prefer to use a liquid concealer under my eyes.

On the blemishes I just tap this concealer onto it without worrying about blending it in just yet.  To blend it out I use a Real Techniques Dome shadow brush to just buff the edges, I don’t touch the actual blemish.

If I was using this under my eyes, I just take the lightest colour on my ring finger and blend it in with my finger. If it needs additional blending I will use the Dome Shadow brush as well.

My thoughts? 

As much as I like this concealer I think my €6 Collection one does the same job but cheaper. I also think I personally prefer liquid concealers. This is by no means a bad concealer  I just prefer liquid. The coverage of this concealer is good and doesn’t leave your blemish cake-y and dry considering it is a very dry formula.

Price?

$33/€36

L’Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer |Review and Dupe

DSC00093

 

L’Oreal is seriously wowing me at the moment with all the dupes its pulling off.

What I like about it?

The brush is attached which makes it really easy to apply although personally I still love to blend it with my fingers.

Its multi-purpose meaning you can conceal those under eye dark circles and highlight your cheekbones and cupid’s bow all with this one product.

The coverage isn’t too heavy which means its perfect for everyday use and it doesn’t crease throughout the day as long as you really blend it in.

I picked up the shade Light which is lighter than my natural skin tone so it does highlight and brighten my under eye bags.

Review and Dupes of MAC Pressed Blot Powder

DSC00088

 

I bought this product as I was fed up with my shiny T-Zone that alway decides to join me at around 11am on the dot. I bought this in a MAC store but you can find this blot powder online here for $25/£15.  There are 5 shades ranging from Light to Deep Dark.

How does this work?

It contains Mica and Silica to absorb oil and reduce shine.

Does it really work?

Yes, I find that it does reduce my shiny forehead. I did use this all over to set my make-up  a few times but I have found I just prefer it on my T-Zone. A powder puff does come with it but I prefer to use a big fluffy ecotools brush.

How long will it last?

As I only use this on my T-zone a few times a day. I think this is going to last me a very long time.

Viviannadoesmakeup | Share the Love Week

This week on LA is going to be share the love week. Basically everyday this week I am going to show you my favourite blogger and vloggers. To start of the week I thought I would tell you about my favourite blogger of all time which is viviannadoesmakeup or Anna.

Anna is the main reason I started my blog. She was the first blogger that didn’t do a heavy smokey eye that realistically I could never achieve. Anna wears very natural make up but recently she’s been embracing a red lip and even eye shadow on the lids everyday.

You’ll love Anna if you like natural make up and great skincare advice.
Anna posts everyday on her blog here, every sunday on her youtube channel here

You can also find Anna on twitter, instagram and facebook.
