Newbies #6


So apparently I bought some new make up bits this week? Well that's rather unlike me...not. These are just bits I decided to get on a recent shopping trip as the holiday blues were hitting rather hard and buying make up is definitely the best way to cheer yourself up. I would say that this post could quite easily have been a haul, but it turns out I'm becoming more restrained in my old age. (haw haw)

Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer is something I used to use ages ago when I first started using the foundation, but decided at a later stage to try something else and just never really went back to it. I've actually used this one a few times already and although I think I may have bought a shade too light for my skin, the finish of this concealer is beautiful. It is more of a liquid than a creamy formula so if you are expecting it to be the concealer version of Double Wear Foundation then I'm afraid that it is not, as it's much lighter than I expected it to be. It definitely blends in seamlessly with foundation, and the finish is lovely and extremely long wearing. I'd say it offers medium coverage, and I got this in the colour Light Warm

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist was one of those things I always eyed up in Superdrug, but never really actually bought. Until now. My obsession with eye brows is bordering on weird, but this is definitely a great little tool to have. It comes with a gel pencil on one side and a spoolie on the other to run through and perfect your brows. So far I've been loving this as its so easy and quick when I don't have all that much time on my hands. The gel could be doing with being a little softer, but it's a good product, and very well priced at around a fiver. I got this in Medium Brown.

So, that's what I bought last week folks! Have any of you guys ever used these products?

  3. The Sleek eyebrow pencil looks like an excellent dupe for the Hourglass pencil, I may give this a try I currently use the Anastasia brow wiz I'm obsessed but I use it like every day and for how much it costs it's not really the most affordable every day product :/ going to pick this one up to try

  9. I have been dying to try the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation for some time but I've never really heard anything about their concealer. I guess I'm going to have to pick up both the foundation and the concealer and call it blog research! Lovely blog post!

    1. I would definitely recommend it! Make sure you get a good colour match though I normally get the consultant to put it on me so I can try it out for the whole day :) xxxx
