A few weeks ago I let myself loose in the Dior beauty section at John Lewis, and as well as picking up my sponge, and a Dior Star Foundation (review to come) I had to pick up a tube of the new Diorskin Star Concealer. It promises to illuminate and sculpt eyes with light, so it’s perfect if you’re trying to cover up some festive late nights.
The concealer comes packaged like a little lipgloss, with a doe foot applicator. After a quick slick of base (I alternate between the Dior Flash foundation and my Estee Lauder EE Cream depending) I just brush a little of the concealer in my under eye area, as well as a little around my nose and mouth then blend it in. The formula feels silky smooth, and it dries to a perfectly matte finish without feeling too drying or powdery. Once you’ve applied the concealer, it’s not going anywhere! Thankfully, it doesn’t crease or pill no matter what I’ve been up to, and it also functions as a great primer.
The Diorskin Star Concealer costs £22.00 and is available at Debenhams and John Lewis
So, I’m sure, like everyone, I’ve seen the infomercials on TV which are all about how awesome Sheer Cover is – so I jumped at the chance of trying the brand’s Conceal and Brighten Trio.
The product is comprised of three parts – two shades of concealer, allowing you to blend for your skintone, and a little white half circle of Brightener. This means, unlike other concealers which can look a little ‘cakey’ Sheer Cover’s stays fresh and natural looking.
The lightest tone is pretty close to my skin colour anyway, but it’s great that I can tailor the shade depending on my tan (or lack thereof). I’m also kind of obsessed with the Brightener. It feels like a light balm, and a little tapped along the top of my cheekbones and brow bones gives me a fresh faced look which is what I’m basically always after!
The trio is priced at £22.95 and is available here.
I love it when companies bring out something which is a little different, and I can safely say that I’ve never seen anything like Stila’s Stay All Day foundation kit. View Post

I’m always on the lookout for a new concealer – I like to have different formulas for different concerns, and recently I’ve been reaching for Miracle Skin Transformer’s Treat & Conceal. View Post
