Memebox recently launched the Yeondukong Easy Brightening Stick as well as Yeondukong Blush Sticks and Contouring ones. This collection of face sticks is actually a collaborated effort between Yeondukong and Memebox! Yeondukong is a beauty guru from Korea (She looks all of 16 years old! Lucky girl!) who does youTube videos.
Since I’m a concealer junkie of course, I had to grab the Yeondukong Easy Brightening Stick ($12) first! This is actually an excellent contouring tool for use under the wells of your eyes and towards your upper cheek bones as it’ll brighten up the area completely. Some gurus have done the same using products like Benefit Lemonaid which I’ve always thought was a damn nifty trick (never tried it myself!)
Let’s take a look at this little brightening stick!
Oily eyes? Shiseido Integrate Gracy Natural Makeup Concealer Stick will be your new best friend. It’s starting to warm up around here and even my drier slip produces a bit of oil in the warmer, humid weather so what worked great for me in the Winter isn’t always a great option in the Summer! That includes hydrating concealers so I tend like switching up my more moisturizing concealers for concealer stickers that have a bit of a drier, denser formula as they tend to wear longer for me!
Shiseido Integrate Gracy Natural Makeup Concealer Stick is one such great pick!
Pixi Undercover Crayon ($14) is a new retractable concealer pencil that’s available in four shade selections which launched for the Summer 2015 season. As a fan of Pixi Correction Concentrate and Pixi Concealing Concentrate and and an overall concealer junkie I was excited to give the new Undercover Crayon a whirl.
I haven’t actually tried any of the color variations as of yet as they do have a fair to warm shade selection! I did however, try out the Perk Up Peach shade which is a corrector of sorts in a soft peach shade that can neutralize and brighten up tired eyes.
Does it work?
I recently picked up Sugar Blend Full Coverage Cream Concealer ($10) online at Kohl’s as a completely random purchase! I was having a little case of nostalgia when I purchased this as one of my first Sephora experiences many, many, many years ago was a Sugar Cosmetics one.
Yes, true story, Sephora used to carry the entire Sugar Cosmetics range. At the time it seemed like the height of awesomeness and I still remember how crazy excited I was about their Sweet Cheeks Baked Blushes! That seems like literally centuries ago!
None the less it’s nice to see that some variation of Sugar is still alive and kicking (and at as local as your neighborhood Kohl’s).
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer ($6) is one I can use at the moment after one too many late nights and hey, for $6 bucks maybe it’ll replace my $42 YSL Touche Eclat. Uh yeah, that’s not going to happen but a girl can dream.
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer feels like a rerun in my makeup life as I have this strong sense of deja vu about it. It seems like something Hard Candy released in another life but repackaged?! I’m not sure why I feel that way but yeah…!
Take a look!
