NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – AMAZING

IMG_2647

I’m on my third tube and it’s only been less than a year. Shu Uemura’s Pro Concealer circa many years ago was the only one i purchased over and over again but once they changed the formula I moved on to Cle De Peau (CDP) but this has to be my favourite.

This is so much more hydrating for use on my under eyes and zits and the best thing is it’s easy to blend, great coverage and stays on.

While it’s pretty cheap $35 from mecca cosmetica the product runs out quickly so while you might be paying around USD$80 for CDP, you will appreciate how much longer it takes before CDP runs out. Having said that CDP doesn’t last as long on the skin as this does. Another gripe is that while they have a wide colour range CDP is a perfect match for me but Biscuit (from NARS) is still a tad darker than I’d like it to be.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder

I am freeeeeeeeeeeee! I’ve been bogged down by work, huge launch coming up. Can’t wait till it does and I am officially unemployed. It was a big decision to leave so hopefully it was the right move.

I almost never buy skincare / makeup / fragrance on the spot, I don’t have the luxury to do so because all my money goes to travelling and bags. I reckon if you take a week to think about something you might end up realising that you never needed it in the first case.

This powder on the other hand was purchased on the spot without any prior planning. The make up artist had such amazing skin, I was bowled over. I kept looking at her skin, all she had on was some of the les beiges cream (released as part of the range) and the sheer powder. So yeah there are exceptions to my own rule.

I was matched to no. 10, I really am not that fair (NC 25) but due to its sheerness it works.

Unless you have amazing skin, you can’t use this alone.

I love this as a finishing powder, it’s not chalky at all and gives me a healthy glow. I’ll use this for longer to see if it will replace my favourite Diorskin Nude Loose Powder.

Price: RM 165

SK-II Facial Treatment Cream Foundation

This makes my skin look so dewy and supple. I never thought my oily combination skin would be able to withhold a cream foundation, but it did.

It does get a bit oily during the day but nothing some blotting can’t fix.

This would be my go to foundation for full coverage without looking cakey. While a little goes a long way, application is slightly annoying seeing I’ve tried applying this with many brushes and the only one that works is Shiseido’s flat head foundation brush which in itself is a lot of work to use too.

For those of you looking for something matte but with full coverage, Estée Lauder’s double wear foundation does a good job but its hard to get a good colour match.

Price is RM200+

Cle de Peau concealer review

Just noticed I purchased my first tube exactly one year ago. Since I’m onto my 2nd tube it’s only befitting that I dedicate a post to it.

I only use cream concealer a because I have oilier skin around my eyes and really dark eye circles. Shu Uemura pro concealer use to be my HG but it is now far too drying plus they replaced it with a new formula.

The colour match of this concealer is perfect (beige) for my nc25 skin and is not as drying. Very easy to blend (I use my sephora concealer brush) and you don’t need a lot because it has lasted me 1 year. Just dot and blend.

Only downside is the price rm190 and around 6 hrs it starts fading off. As you can see its not a lot of product for rm190.
