You NEED: E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush

E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush

I’m the type that has applied concealer using my fingers for years and years and years. I’ve never met a concealer brush I like to use. Most have thin bristles and don’t really do very much to get concealer into place.

After discovering Sephora’s Concealer Brush my life changed but prior to that and forever after my main concealer brush squeeze is the three buck E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush.

You NEED it!

Essence Breaking Dawn Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Essence Breaking Dawn Lipgloss

Beauty budget brand, Essence, has created a Twilight Breaking Dawn 2 Collection to celebrate the release of the movie. This isn’t the first time Essence has embraced Twilight as they have had another collection inspired by the film.

I generally like Essence and although some of my fandom has cooled when it comes to Twilight I still like the overall idea of this collection. It’ll be a little tricky to locate as Ulta is the only US store I know of that sells Essence but keep an eye out for it in store.

I went to Ulta this weekend and they sadly, didn’t have the collection. I have my eye on the bright red blush that was released with the collection.

My other lemming? The Breaking Dawn Lipgloss which I was lucky enough to get a sample of!

Hard Candy Lite Bright Whipped Brightening Concealer Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Lite Bright Whipped Brightening Concealer

Hard Candy Lite Bright Whipped Brightening Concealer ($6) is a new whipped click pen concealer that launched for Fall/Winter 2012. Hardy Candy markets the formula as an illuminating concealer to brighten eyes and reduce the appearance of dark circles.

I’m a complete concealer h0r so of course I had to get my hands on this as soon as humanly possible. After a variety of trips to the evil empire Walmart I was finally able to track this down. Believe me heading to Walmart more than once is like removing teeth from my mouth without anesthetic, god help me. But for concealer I was willing to do it.

Let’s take a look!
