Currently obsessing over; Setting powders and concealers

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Hello, hello are we having a great day today? I sure hope so.

When I was writing down my monthly favourites I noticed that I want to include quite a few face products, especially setting powders and concealers. I didn't want to make that post even longer that it will be, so I decided to do another Currently obsessing over post. 
If you saw me without concealer in the past month or so, you would think that I haven't slept in months and it would be more than obvious why I have been obsessing over concealers. I still haven't find ''the one'' but these are my favourite ones at the moment. 



1. L'oreal Paris Lumi Magique highligting pen (2 Medium): This actually isn't a concealer, but I included it anyway, because ever since my under eye circles went to the dark side, I've been using it regularly. It really brightens up your under eye area and it instantly makes you look alive and awake, which is always great for those morning classes. When I want to look a little bit more fancy, I also use this to highlight my brow bone, cupid's bow and my nose.

2. L'oreal Paris True match Touche Magique anti fatigue and illuminating concealer (Beige Rose): In my opinion this is the best concealer I've tried from the drugstore. It's full coverage, it's creamy yet not too liquidly, it's hydrating, illuminating and it doesn't creases. I actually ran out of it, and purchased the Missly one instead because I wanted to try something else, but I'll go back to this one as soon as my spending ban is over. 

3. Missly concealer (03 Porcelain): As I said, I bought this one because I wanted to try something new, but I kinda regret it. Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely concealer, creamy and brightening, but when my under eye circles are very dark, it doesn't cover them. If I'm not going somewhere special on the weekends, I like to use it on its own, but for every day use I've been pairing it with the Catrice Camouflage cream.

4. Catrice Cosmetics Camouflage cream ( 010 Ivory): A lot of Slovenian bloggers have been raving about this concealer, so of course I had to jump on the bandwagon. I have to say that I completely understand all the good reviews. This will cover even the darkest under eye circles and it works wonders with covering any blemishes. It's extremely thick, so I like to apply it with the Real Techniques Contour brush and if I'm running late, just dab it lightly with my fingers. As I mentioned, I pair this with the Missly concealer, because this one isn't all that brightening. I also didn't experienced any creasing, but I do always set it with powder. 



5. Essence All about matt! fixing loose powder: Another product I've bought because of the Slovenian bloggers and again, I love it. It sets my makeup perfectly, it takes away any shine, it doesn't look cakey or powdery, it doesn't add any colour since it's translucent, and I even think it makes my pores disappear.  I didn't think I would say this, but I actually like this more than the Rimmel Stay matte powder, plus it's easily available in Slovenia. 

6. Essence All about matt! fixing compact powder: Since I love the loose powder so much and since that one can get a little bit messy, I decided to get the compact powder as well. I've been using this every day and I seriously can say enough good things about it.

7. Alverde Naturkosmetik kompaktpuder (010 Naturelle): At the begging of October I was searching for a cheap powder, to carry in my handbag, that wouldn't add too much colour to my face. I didn't get the Essence one because I was in a drugstore that didn't have it, so I decided to get this one from Alverde because it was very light and I also don't own a lot of Alverde products. I honestly didn't think I would love it as much as I do. Even though it's in my handbag the majority of time, I tend to use it quite a lot. Sometimes I even go and touch up my makeup even if I don't need to, because this powder is so soft and feels very nice on the skin. Again, it's not too powdery, it won't make you look cakey and it will keep the shine away. 

Catrice, Missly, L'oreal Touche Magique and Lumi Magique

Have you tried any of these? What's your favourite drugstore concealer?

  9. Sanja, kje si kupila Lumi Magique? Ker sem bila v parih drogerijah pa ga ni nikjer .No v Müller res še nisem šla pogledat, samo stojala so ista in ni niti prostora nikjer. Našla sem samo True match Touche Magique. Ni ga niti na feelunique. Weird al sem pa jaz slepa :/
