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!

Sephora Pro Visionary Highlighting Fan Brush Review

Sephora Pro Visionary Highlighting Fan Brush

Might I recommend the Sephora Pro Visionary Highlighting Fan Brush #122 ($38)? I was discussing blushes last week like the new NARS Rotonde and Boys Don’t Cry shades and I realized how often I reach for a fan brush to apply shades like this.

I also love using a fan brush with highlighters or to apply bronzers like the new Milani TANtastic Bronzer. Fan brushes are just a little more precise at application with pigmented or too shimmery products. They pick up a hell of a lot less product than your standard blush or bronzer and make it easier to get a faint yet glowing flush of color on your cheeks without over doing it.

For heavy handed folks like me they are a beauty tool god sent.

Benefit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer ($32) will be available this July and you guessed it, it promises 15 hours of flawless foundation wearing. That’s a hell of an awesome claim.

According to Benefit’s marketing Stay Flawless Primer will help foundation last longer. The interesting thing about Benefit Stay Flawless Primer is the fact that it comes in an unconventional design, it’s a stick primer.

Curious?

Dior Hydra Life BB Eye Creme Review & Swatches

Dior Hydra Life BB Eye Creme

As you know Dior introduced two new BB Eye Creams one of which is the new Dior Hydra Life BB Eye Creme and the other is the new Diorsnow BB Eye Creme.

With BB Creams being so popular at the moment I was pleasantly surprised to see Dior doing a BB Cream for eyes. Granted, Asia has so many different BB Cream type products including concealers but we have yet to see one here in the US. So indeed, I was quite excited to try this out.

Take a look!
