Sheer Cover Review June 4, 2012

Today I bring you the Sheer Cover concealer duo that I received in my “spring beauty” influenster vox box.  This is a set of two concealers that can be blended for your “perfect shade” they cost $29.95 (or can be purchased in the intro set). I also received this a few months ago from MyGlam, but never reviewed it.

So – Want to hear about it?

First, I am super happy that it is not overly yellow – soooo many concealers are – I suppose to hide the red that is associated with most blemishes, but when your skin tone is not that yellow you can look jaundice.

Unfortunately (as you can see from the photo) it is much darker than my skin tone. The point of concealer is to conceal so it is pretty much opaque – so you can’t get away with much color difference from your own skin tone. So, this doesn’t work that great for me, however I’ve had some bad acne lately – that my heavier foundation doesn’t make disappear, and so I have managed to use it fairly inconspicously under that heavier foundation and successfully covered those red blemishes.

It is a nice formula and it doesn’t crack like some concealers I’ve used before. If it matches your skintone then I’d highly recommend it.

So, on to the details; you can buy this from: http://www.sheercover.com as part of the intro set – but according to their website “You must be a current Sheer Cover Home Delivery Member with a web account in order to see the entire catalog. If you have a SheerCover.com web account, please click on the “Log In” button located at the top of your screen and enter your username and password. If you are an active customer and do not have a web account, click here to set up your account. ” so I don’t think you can buy it separate on their site unless you subscribe to them, you can pick it up on other online retailers without the “set”, just google and you will find it.

Would I buy this again? If they started making it in an even lighter duo then yes.

Will I finish the sample? I’ll keep it around and use it occasionally.

Today I bring you both the Murad Eye Lift Perfector and Keracolor Color Enhancing Leave-In Treatment. I received both of these in my March MyGlam bag. Both were in foil sample packets so I put them into small craft jars. There was really very little of the Murad, maybe 3 uses.

Make Up For Ever HD concealer review October 25, 2011

Do you ever have those mornings where the area under your eyes looks like Grimace sat on them and left some of his purple behind?  Since my LASIK procedure a few months ago I have had more problems with tired looking and feeling eyes than ever before.  I’ve started using eye creams daily and that has helped a bit but I still get these purple bags. Yep I get that they are not as bad as some people get – but it still bugs me.  So what do I do? I put some concealer there and hope no one else notices!  As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve got a stash I keep at work. Currently in that stash is the Make Up For Ever HD concealer. I bought this one because I’ve always heard that you should use a concealer that is lighter than your own skin color. Well, I’m super pasty – like bad, so it was difficult finding a concealer that light colored. Additionally my skin has a slight pink tint so yellow based products usually make me look ill – Make Up For Ever HD concealer came in the color I needed so I snatched it up!
