A few new discovered treasures.

Hello fellow beauty junkies!

Illamasqua Lipsticks:
Not only is the texture and consistency of the lipsticks brilliantly thick and rich, their colors are so pigmented. Good for photoshoots.

Makeup Forever Full Cover Concealer:
It does conceal undereye darkness to a certain extent and blends in nicely. It didn’t get cakey and had decent staying power. Since the concealer is somewhat thick in consistency, it can also be used on other areas on the face.

Sephora Smoothing & Brightening Concealer:
For those of you that would like to add a little extra glow under your eyes without it seeming too obvious or somewhat fake, using a “brightening” or “color-correcting” concealer can really help. Sephora’s range of Smoothing & Brightening Concealers do a great job of concealing and brightening the under-eye area. According to the general makeup guidelines, light pink or lavender concealers are used for color-correcting or brightening under-eye areas on people of warm skin tones to counteract yellow or sallow skin. Warm pink (or peachy-pink) is more suitable for doing the same job on people of cool skin tones as it would be more effective in counteracting blue-ish or purple-ish under-eye dark circles. After the pink concealer is applied, a yellow one is added on top and blended in accordingly.
