Bare Minerals Bare Skin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals Bare Skin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer

Bare Minerals Bare Skin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($20) is a new, permanent serum concealer which promises high coverage in an ultra light formula that conceals dark circles and other imperfections. It’s formulated with high-def mineral optics to counteract dark shadows and give eyes a more brighter appearance as well as hydrating humectants to leave skin nourished and hydrated.

Serum concealers are having their moment in the spotlight lately with even Sephora getting in on the game! It doesn’t surprise me considering serum foundations had a little bit of a trend over the course of the last few years. I’m actually not a fan of serum foundation as they feel slick and oily to me. You’d think as someone with drier skin I’d like serum foundation but nope, not for me! But I had to qualms about trying out serum concealer as my eyes are as dry as the Sahara Desert no bring it!

E.L.F. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint

E.L.F. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint ($6) is one of those lip tints you’re going to really love or really hate. E.L.F. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint is formulated to react with the chemistry of your lips to create a personalized shade of pink. I know, I know, you’re likely not buying into that after all these years of brands telling you about your “perfect shade of pink”.

There’s Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint, Diorglow Dior Addict Lip Glow, Catrice Tinted Lip Glow Balm, and the list goes on and on and on. Most of these color changing lip tint treatments aren’t a universally flatter shade but more of a bubblegum pink no matter your skin tone or body chemistry. But none the less many of flock towards them like seagulls. And it is understandable as we somehow desire just a quickie way to get some color on our lips and go. At least that’s the case for me as I’m kinda sorta lazy about retouching up with lipstick or gloss but give me a quick lip tint or balm I can tuck into my desk drawer and I can easily swipe it on for a little color.
