Urban Decay Smoke Out Kit Sweet Lucy Review and Swatches

The Muse is a little obsessed with boxes, draws, and little storage units to tuck makeup in. She blames it on her pack rat behavior and OCD nature. Of course this has to be the reason why the new Urban Decay Smoke Out Kits totally chuff her silly. It’s all about little draws, nooks, and crannies where eye shadow, mascara, eyeliner, and a little tutorial hangs out.

Cover FX Conceal FX Camouflage Concealer Review and Swatches

Cover FX Conceal FX Camouflage Concealer is one of the weirdest concealers I’ve had the pleasure of working with.  With a color match that was completely wrong on so many levels….hello gross orange shade….and a formula that’s all kinds of strangeness, it did so take me a second to get my kicks on with this guy.

Clarins Concealer Stick Review and Swatches

The Muse missed the boat on the Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick. I dunno I was kinda on the fence about a stick concealer so I didn’t bother indulging. I guess stick foundations kinda remind me of those old school lipstick style concealers with the hard texture and awful formula that makes blending into the art of scrubbing really hard. Applying concealer should not involve scrubbing to the point you’re yelling “out, out damn spot!”. You so know what I mean right? Lord knows they even still sell these lethal concealer lipstick thingys at your local drugstore.  In my humblest they should be outlawed.

Yes, so that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

However, Clarins Concealer Stick popped around for a visit today and I immediately raced to my mirror to try it out. I should have been feeling skeptical about it like most stick foundation but in my excitement I completely forget my unforgiving nature in regards to stick concealers.

Thank god I did as it’s special.

Jump for it.
