I happen to be the first person that screams, “Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!” when it comes to stick concealers. This is not the 60’s, this is not your mama’s makeup, you do not need concealer in the form of the lipstick. Why? Because I said so.
I’m sorry but stick concealers are way dated, ahem, I’m talking to you $80 Clea de Peau Beaute Concealer.
Seriously, I commonly associate stick concealers with really bad formulas and I just feel like they aren’t the best option when it comes to concealing woe under your eyes. Perhaps it’s easy enough to dab on spots and the likes but I’m one for judging concealer for the way it’ll make my eyes look awake, refreshed, and bright and I can’t really get that effect in a lipstick style concealer or at least I haven’t personally found one that does the trick.
One wonders if the new Revlon Photo Ready Concealer Stick might do the trick?
Shall we explore?
Lavshuca didn’t go the coffret route this year for the Holidays which was a bit disappointing. Nor did they go for a special palette release. They did however release a brand new selection of eyeshadow palettes. This is an interesting release for the brand considering they reserve palette releases for the Spring and only release a special palette or two or a coffret for the Holidays.
Lavshuca is a drugstore brand that can be purchased in Japan. Unlike findings in a US drugstore, Japanese drugstore makeup is of high quality, incredibly pigmented, and just stunning, packaging wise.
For Winter, Lavshuca released a total of five shades of their new Star Decoration Eyes Palettes.

I did a little too much damage during the 50% off site wide sale at NYX during Thanksgiving weekend. Ouch! But who resist at these prices?
I was excited to haul some of the mega palettes they had and I gotta tell you, so far, I’m not disappointed!
Even if you missed the sale, NYX still calls to the beauty budget souls among us. Check out their blush if you’re seeking pigmented yet wallet friendly.
I tried the shade Desert Rose and loved it!
My Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set arrived from Japan last week. Lots of squealing, hyperventilating, and screaming occurred during the surgical procedure of opening and unwrapping the contents of the box it arrived in.
It’s probably my most expensive makeup purchase I’ve made this Holiday season, tipping the scales at nearly $200 USD due to costly airmail shipping.
It’s gorgeous to say the least.

More clicking fun with your mascara. Gotta love mascara that pulls out all the bells and whistles eh? I really liked Almay One Coat Dial Up Mascara, did you try it?
Revlon Custom Eyes Mascara is another dial up design that might interest those of us who like gadget-y, gimmick-y mascaras. I’m not only a member of that geek club, I’m the president yo.
