Good lord, it’s been a while since I put finger to keyboard around these parts. Cue 200 spammy spam comments on my blog and I know it’s about time I got back into some posts – I have tonnes of products to review for you and lots of make up looks to talk about!
SO first things first, I have a little surprising product review for you – this is of something I didn’t have massively high hopes for but ended up actually loving!
This L’Oréal True Match concealer (£7.99) was a weird purchase for me – I was putting off repurchasing the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer which is my all time favourite, but it is quite expensive. I ended up flailing around in Boots like a maniac until I picked up one of these concealers (a TWIST UP PEN for God’s sake) and gave it a new home.
I was surprised that I quite liked this when I started using it. Even the twist up thing doesn’t annoy me too much! Amazing!
The concealer I chose was in the shade ‘Warm Beige’ (a complete and utter guess) and it’s quite pinky toned, but in a nice way. I do find this is good at reflecting light which makes it a good concealer for under the eyes. It’s thicker in consistency than you’d expect from a twist up pen concealer, but that was a pleasant surprise to me!
I think because of the shade of it I’d be better off using a colour corrector under this, as it can come off a little grey/ashy for me when used on it’s own.
I’ve recently started enjoying using a small concoction of concealers to help balance my face out – I use the Urban Decay Naked Skin in Medium Neutral (£19) as the main concealer under my eyes (yessss I caved and bought another), this concealer by L’Oréal around the edges of my undereyes and then the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in ‘Soft Beige’ (£5.49) to highlight at the outer corners of my eyes. This really helps to wake my face up and make it look alot healthier…like I’ve had a really good sleep!
Have you tried this concealer before? Or any weird twisty up pen ones?!
Feels glad to be back people!
