Avon Extra Lasting Concealer Review & Swatches

Avon Extra Lasting Concealer

I decided to give Avon Extra Lasting Concealer a try earlier this month since it was on sale. Hey, $4.99 concealer seemed a tempting morsel. Extra Lasting Concealer is typically $9 but Avon has had it on sale for a fiver the last month or so. This comes in 7 shades and claims 18 hours of concealing wear.

I typically don’t have a ton of issues with my concealer fading. Blame it on my drier eyes but my concealer tends to stay put once applied and very rarely fades away so I’m unsure if I really need a formula that lasts eighteen hours because if I wanted it too my current concealer can go a full 24.

But….

Anything to try a new concealer I say!

Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick Lip Swatches

Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick

I gotta admit when I originally reviewed Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick I was disappointed I had so few colors to try out. Which is why I decided to do new swatches and lip swatches. At the time they were rather difficult to locate in stores but now you can find Color Whisper Lipstick at every single drugstore you stop at.

Good news there as of course, I picked up as many colors as I could during my trips to a variety of drugstores over the last few months.

One thing that disappointed me with Color Whisper was the shades lacked any deep colors. Did anyone notice they all seem to run a little lighter? I’d love something deeper.

But none the less they are still one of my favorite budget drugstore lipsticks!

Let’s take a look at some swatches!
