Too Faced Born This Way Concealer Swatches & Review

Sunday 22 May 2016
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer. This is described as a "naturally radiant concealer". It will launch on June 15, 2016 and will retail for $39 CAD and $28 USD. I was lucky enough to receive this at Generation Beauty - if you're interested here is my vlog and swag bag.
There are 10 different shades, from very fair to deep. I am somewhere in the middle, and use Medium Tan. It has ingredients like coconut water, alpine rose and hyaluronic acid for an undetectable coverage that will also hydrate and brighten! 
So far I am super happy with the concealer, the only bummer is the Canadian price tag. It has a really nice smooth texture, a doe foot applicator and medium, leaning full coverage. It is less thick than my NARS Creamy Concealer. 

As you will see in the below picture it does a great job covering my darkness. Unfortunately my freckles are where my undereye darkness is and you can see the coverage between the two shots.

It has good wear time throughout the day, doesn't get cakey or dry and does not melt with my oily skin. Overall I am really loving this concealer!

Mary Kay Perfecting Concealer + Mary Kay Undereye Concealer Swatches and Review

I felt like the concealers and correctors needed their own post, I have reviewed the rest of the collection here. 

Mary Kay Perfecting Concealer $17.50. The concealers come in the same packaging as the corrector which I have pictured below. Great packaging, I love that you can see the color of the concealer through the package. It also has a nice doe foot applicator. I wear light beige if I want to look really bright, or will combine it with deep beige. 

I am incredibly impressed with this concealer. It is amazing for covering darkness under the eyes and I think it would also be great for concealing blemishes! It is however easy to be heavy handed with this so start small and build up. It has amazing lasting power throughout the day.

 Mary Kay Undereye Corrector $17.50.This is definitely on the lighter shade of correctors but it does have a nice peachy tone. I would like to have seen a few shades in the corrector because this will not work for everyone. But my points from the above concealers stand for this corrector. Great coverage, wear time and texture! 

NEW Maybelline Loaded Bolds Lipstick Swatches

Sunday 15 May 2016

SO excited I got my hands on these while in the States. I found them at Target in 
a brand new end aisle display. If you'd prefer my video review/swatches click here.
I don't know a ton about them but here is what I have so far:

20 shades in the US
10 shades in Canada (probably late July)
 From black and white to greys, pinks, browns, nudes, purples! The shade range is massive and unique.
Cream finish. They have a great slip without feeling greasy.
Very comfortable to wear, non-drying.
LOADED with pigmentation, I get why they are called the Loaded Bolds. 
They do transfer, but have great wear time.
Classic Maybelline lipstick scent. 
I picked up mine for $6.50 USD at Target.
