Clarins Concealer Stick Review and Swatches

The Muse missed the boat on the Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick. I dunno I was kinda on the fence about a stick concealer so I didn’t bother indulging. I guess stick foundations kinda remind me of those old school lipstick style concealers with the hard texture and awful formula that makes blending into the art of scrubbing really hard. Applying concealer should not involve scrubbing to the point you’re yelling “out, out damn spot!”. You so know what I mean right? Lord knows they even still sell these lethal concealer lipstick thingys at your local drugstore.  In my humblest they should be outlawed.

Yes, so that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

However, Clarins Concealer Stick popped around for a visit today and I immediately raced to my mirror to try it out. I should have been feeling skeptical about it like most stick foundation but in my excitement I completely forget my unforgiving nature in regards to stick concealers.

Thank god I did as it’s special.

Jump for it.

Sneak Peek: Lancome Holiday Collection 2009

The British Beauty Blogger is on the case of the Lancome Holiday Collection 2009. Although it may be early for you to think of the Holiday, the world of beauty bloggers are already clamoring at the prospects of beautiful seasonal makeup.

Lancome releases yet another shimmering powder with this year’s holiday collection. I find that Lancome and Estee Lauder seem to keep with the powder theme much of the time. Obviously, this is a super secret ninja spy marketing technique because they know we can’t just pass up a powder that sparkles right? Lancome Sparkling Cherub Sheer Warming Illuminating powder has a cute little cherub embedded into the powder and appears to be made up of a bronze gold shade. Looks more Valentine-like to me but very pretty none the less.

Lancome Holiday Collection 2009 11

Lancome Glossy Plum Color Fever Gloss looks like a rather festive red color. British Beauty Blogger reports it’s somewhat of gothic, vampy shade. I find it unique and quite fitting for the holiday.

Lancome Holiday Collection 2009 22

Also releasing are two limited edition Lancome Oscillation Mascaras one of which is a sparkling gold and the other a silver. I’m really interested in both as I love sparkly lash looks for the Holiday.

The entire collection should be available on counters November 1st or probably before if this Muse’s Lancome hopes and wishes are granted.
