Review: Loreal True Match Concealer

Loreal True Match concealer. 5.2 mL, $8.95.

The shade I purchased is Warm Light/Medium. I have not tried the foundation for this line, but only the concealer. I originally purchased this thinking it would be for my undereyes, but it creases too much on me.

This is a very creamy liquid concealer. It comes is a tube with 5.2 mL of product, and a wand applicator. There is a very wide assorted variety of shades available for a drugstore concealer.

The product itself blends well, but creases easily under the eyes. It must be set with powder, but on me it still creases. It would be better as a concealer for face, where it does a good job at concealing my blemishes. This is the rare instance in which it is actually too warm, and too yellow for my skin tone, but blended out under foundation makes it wearable for me.

Usually products are too pink for me. So thank you Loreal for putting out a line that can match almost anyone :).

Also, drugstores frequently have promotions for L'Oreal, so look for those.

NYX Rouge Cream Blush in 'Tickled'

NYX's Rouge Cream Blush in 'Tickled' is a beautiful coral shimmer. It has nice gold shimmer to it, that on the cheeks makes it seem luminous, but not frosty. This is the perfect color for summer.

This is my first time trying NYX's cream blushes. I have a few MAC and random assorted other brands. I love cream blush, and have been wanting to try these out for awhile.

Tickled reminded me a bit of NARS orgasm, except more peachy than pink, and this delivers more color payoff than orgasm does on my medium skin. It is so creamy and easy to blend. I apply this with my fingers.

Lasting power without anything else on my face is 3-4 hours, after that and it begins to fade. If applied over foundation and with a powder to set it on top, it lasts all day. I am overall very happy with the quality of this blush.

It is also only $5-6, depending on where you shop.

Review: Coastal Classic Creations Lip Product: Idas Rose Lipstick

This is a lovely color in real life. It is described on Coastal Classic Creations's website as a Raspberry Rose color, and that describes it very well. On the lips it is very sheer, and very glossy. Love the color!

However, it is quite the hard product. You have to warm it up with your fingers before applying. I do like that it lasts quite awhile on your lips, and is very glossy.

I also dislike the smell very much. The main ingredients are sunflower seed oil and palm kernel stearin. It smells like sunflower seeds, and very strongly. I'm not sure if mine went bad, or it they all smell like that.

Other ingredients: Candelila Wax and Red iron oxide.

I bought this in a mini travel size set to sample a few different products from Coastal Classic Creations, and I love the blush and eyeshadow that I also purchased.

CoverGirl Simply Ageless Eye Concealer and Corrector

Hi Everyone! It has been a long time! I'm here to do a quick review on a new product to me. It has been on the market for awhile, but I have just picked up 2 shades in the past month to try out. I have pretty dark undereye circles, for reference. I also hate when concealers get cakey and crease under my eyes.

I don't really know what possessed me to try these concealers. I got the shade shown above 230, which is a yellow corrector, and the shade 210 Light/medium. They are so thick! Very thick cream concealers, and very high coverage. I tend to like liquid concealers, so these aren't really my thing.

A little bit goes a long way. I can't wear both at the same time, even very sparingly, it looks cakey and fake. I can get away with just the light/medium shade, if blended out carefully, not too much. It does look good. But I still prefer a liquid concealer for easier blendability without patting my delicate undereyes as much.

One tub of this will last forever, or at least until it dries out.

My favorite concealer is still the Maybelline Dark Circles Eraser. Now that it's summer time, I use the shade medium. It is very good, and honestly hard to mess up, so perfect for the mornings.
