So it’s that time of month again (no, not that!) where I sing praises to the products that I’ve been loving lately.
First up is the Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer (in the shade Ginger) . It’s one of those products that well and truly lives up to the hype and has surpassed all my expectations. I take my hat off to whoever created this dreamy, creamy liquid formulation as its ability to hide a multitude of sins is unrivalled. You wouldn’t have thought a concealer like this was enough to hide unsightly spots but it surprisingly does and because it’s so creamy, it sets beautifully and doesn’t cake, crease or dry out. I set it with a powder to ensure its staying power throughout the day. This is the best concealer I’ve come across so far and is light enough to go under the eyes too.
So many brands are coming out with the own version of the angled, waxy pencil for brows and I first heard of it on You Tube (of course) and it was the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil I believe. At £26, I was quite hesitant to spend so much for a brow product especially as I was content with using Mac Expresso through my brows with an angled brush and just setting it with some clear mascara. However, when I got a subscription email through from Sleek introducing their new brow grooming product called their Eyebrow Stylist I was very, very intrigued. At the one end, you have an angled tip designed in a way that you can shape and sculpt your brows, and then using the tip of the angled pencil, you can fill your brows in with fine hair-like strokes. On the other end, you have a spoolie to comb through your brows pre and post your brow application for a softer, more natural look. It’s available in 3 shades; light, medium and dark which is the shade I use. Now, I cannot compare it to the Hourglass offering as I haven’t used it, however, they do look rather similar. With the Sleek Eyebrow Stylist being around £20 cheaper, I’ll skip the Hourglass thanks and happily stick with the Sleek offering.
