I just found out the best DRUGSTORE foundation combo! Girls, get yourself the new L'Oréal infalliable total cover foundation & mix it with the L'Oréal true match. It gives you a full coverage look along with a satin finish. You’re welcome💖
Introducing RevolutionConceal & Define,a concealer for everyone. The entire range consists of 25 shades varying from the fairest of fair to the deepest of deep. This vast colour range also comes in a mixture of undertones; cool, neutral and warm, so there is something for everyone!
This lightweight formula is synonymous with the Too Faced ‘Born This Way’ concealer, only with a matte finish rather than a radiant one, and they’re not drying under the eyes like you might expect with a matte finish. Revolution says it’s a full coverage concealer that will counteract dark circles, cover blemishes and even out skin tone. I have concealed a blemish well using a shade suited to my skin tone from this range and I have to say I was impressed, it wasn’t anymore drying in that area than my high-end concealers - you can always expect a little when covering a blemish but in fact, it sat rather well. Having had a play with them on my face and my arm, I can confirm they do offer good coverage with definite staying power. It was hard to remove the swatches.
What I like about the formulation is that it’s not too thick. Many concealers are, and this means they tend to be relatively drying underneath the eyes which cause that dreaded crepey appearance. It didn’t produce creases when blended in with my fingers, I haven’t tried a heavier application as yet, but note, the more you layer products the more likely they are to crease. After a while of wearing the concealer my under eye area became a little chalky, which is often the case when I try out drugstore formulations, although, this is one of the better ones I’ve tried. For the price, I’m not going to complain.
These concealers are fluid enough to be worn anywhere on the face, as well as used to contour & highlight with. They have a doe-foot applicator which is larger than most, but great for covering bigger areas in one swipe. They are cruelty-free & vegan-friendly, and you get 11oz / 3.4ml for only £4.00!!!
Let’s get to the shades;
C0 – Pure white - I would use this to lighten other shades, or used as an eyeshadow base to intensify colour pay-off. I often use the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk for this but you can definitely try this concealer, it will have more than one use. C0.5 – Fair skin tones with a pink undertone - (Cool based, usually veins in your arms will appear Blue) C1 – For fair skin tones with neutral undertone (Usually, veins in your arms will appear both Green & Blue) C2 – For fair skin tones with yellow undertone (Warm based, usually veins in your arms will appear Green) C3 – For fair skin tones with neutral undertone
C4 – Light skin tones with a pink undertone C5 – Light skin tones with a golden undertone (Warm based, usually veins in your arms will appear Green) C6 – Light/medium skin tones with a neutral undertone C6.5 – Light/medium skin tones with a yellow undertone C7 – Medium skin tones with a peach undertone (Warm based, usually veins in your arms will appear Green)
C8 – Medium skin tones with a golden undertone C8.5 - Medium skin tones with a yellow undertone C9 – Medium skin tones with a peach undertone C10- Medium skin tones with a golden undertone C10.5 - Medium skin tones with a yellow undertone
C11 – Medium/dark skin tones with a golden undertone C12 – Medium/dark skin tones with a neutral undertone C12.5 - Medium/dark skin tones with a golden undertone C13 – Dark skin tones with a warm undertone C13.5 - Dark skin tones with a neutral undertone
C14 – for dark skin tones with a cool undertone C15 – for dark skin tones with a neutral undertone C16 – for dark skin tones with a warm undertone C17 – for dark skin tones with a neutral undertone C18 – for dark skin tones with a warm undertone
Overall, for £4.00 I’m excited to see these in drugstore / high street shops! Influencers on social media are comparing them to the likes of Tarte Cosmetics’ Shape Tape concealer, which, as you know, has been and still is the go-to product for those with £22 to spare. But for those of you who don’t, you now have a fantastic alternative at just a fraction of the cost… no matter your skin tone, there is ‘a concealer for everyone’.
Imagine deciding to save some money by colouring your own hair instead of going to the salon every few weeks. Hundreds of dollars versus, what? Ten bucks, max, on a boxed kit from the drugstore? Sounds like an easy winner.
As you gather your supplies, you’re dorkily pumped to get started.
Loki comes into the room as you’re arranging your makeshift “workstation” and asks what you’re doing. When you explain your plan, he nods his head, agreeing that it’s “much more efficient.”
(Naturally, he omits the little fact that it’s more time he gets to see you, instead of you burning an afternoon at the salon.)
As Loki looks around, his expression becomes serious, like he’s thinking very deeply about something.
He runs his fingers through a few strands of hair at the back of your head as he speaks. “Can you reach back here?”
You reach backwards, your fingers meeting his. “Yeah, kind of.”
“‘Kind of’? Is it comfortable?”
“No… Not really, I guess.” What’s he getting at?
Loki reaches around you, taking the plastic gloves from the countertop. “Sit down,” he says with a gentle smile.
You sit down and he drapes a towel over the back of your shoulders before mixing the dye from the box.
It’s all you can do to keep from fangirling out when he places a kiss on the top of your scalp before telling you that “Tonight, I shall bring the salon home to you… my queen.”
