Current concealer routine






I'm always very picky when it comes to concealers. And truth to be told it is hard to find a really nice concealer. You can never use the same one for both under the eyes and on the face so most of the time I use two different concealers. One that is creamier and lighter under the eyes and the dryer full coverage one on the occasional blemishes and pimples. Right now I'm using these two, an old favourite and the new one I'm not so happy about, but I will still write about it for those of you how were thinking to get it.

My all time favourite face concealer is Clinique Even Better Concealer. This one is in the shade Chamois which is a dark colour for my normal skin tone so I wear it only during the summer. Sadly this concealer is discontinued but will always be one of my favourite face concealers. The texture is nice and blendable, but still on the dry side which makes it long lasting. It will stay put for the whole day when I blot it with powder. Great thing about this concealer is that it covers extremely well without looking cakey or uneven. I just love how it glides over the imperfections and blends with the rest of the skin and still manages to cover the most of the blemishes and other imperfections. Only flaw is that it can't be used on the delicate skin under the eyes because it's too dry and will make the fine lines visible and the gentle skin around the eyes looking dry and unhealthy.

Second concealer I'm using is NYX Above&Beyond Full Coverage Concealer in the shade CJ02 Fair. I have to say I'm not too happy with this one. It blends and applies well and the shade is perfect for my skin tone. Still it creases a lot, although it says on the packaging it's crease free. Even with my best efforts to keep it looking nice it always looks weird and uneven. I can make it work only when I'm not wearing eye cream and when it's not too hot outside. After a while it will smudge and start to fade which is never an appealing look. If you were planing to buy it I recommend getting NYX HD Concealer instead. 

Have you tried these concealers before? How do you like them?



Uvek posebno obratim pažnju kada se radi o biranju korektora. I istina je da je teško naći stvarno dobar korektor. Nikada ne možete da koristite isti korektor i za ispod očiju i na licu pa uglavnom koristim dva različita. Jedan lakši i kremastiji za područje ispod očiju i drugi suvlji koji više pokriva za povremene bubuljice i mitisere. Trenutno koristim ova dva, stari omiljeni i novi kojim nisam toliko zadovoljna, ali ću svejedno da pišem o njemu za one od vas koji su planirali da ga probaju.

Moj omiljeni korektor za lice je Clinique Even Better korektor. Ovaj koji trenutno imam je u boji Chamois što je tamnija boja od moje normalne boje tena pa ga nosim samo leti. Nažalost, ovaj korektor se više ne proizvodi ali će uvek ostati jedan od mojih najdražih korektora za lice. Tekstura je fina i lako se razmazuje, ali je i dalje suva toliko da on bude dugotrajan. Ostaće na licu ceo dan kada ga fiksiram puderom. Sjajna stvar kod njega je to što jako dobro prekriva a ne izgleda teško i nejednako. Obožavam kako lako prelazi preko nesavršenosti i stapa se sa ostatkom tena dok i dalje pokriva većinu bubuljica i ostalih nesavršenosti. Jedina mana mu je to što ne može da se koristi na delikatnoj koži ispod očiju zato jer je previše suv pa su od njega borice vidljive žbog čega nežna koža oko očiju izgleda suvo i nezdravo.

Drugi korektor koji trenutno koristim je NYX Above&Beyond Full Coverage korektor u nijansi CJ02 Fair. Moram da priznam da njime nisam toliko zadovoljna. Lepo se razmazuje i nanosi i nijansa savršeno odgovara mom tenu. Ipak, dosta se zavlači u borice iako na pakovanju piše da to nije slučaj. Čak i uz najviše truda da lepo izgleda uvek ispadne čudno i nejednako. Može da izgleda pristojno kada ne koristim okoloočnu kremu i kada napolju nije vruće. Posle nekog vremena će se razmazat i početi da bledi što nikako ne može dobro da izgleda. Ako ste planirali da ga kupite preporučujem da umesto njega probate NYX HD korektor.

Da li ste probali neki od ovih korektora ranije? Kako su vam se dopali?

  1. Potpuno se slažem za NYX Above&Beyond korektor ali ja ga obožavam i koristim za sve osim područja ispod očiju! Odličan je!
