Am off today. Hanging out at home with the pets and nursing a slight anger towards people who really do not matter a lot but are managing to affect me anyway and have no car to go anywhere. So, have decided to make this a girly afternoon playing with my make-up and writing a few reviews!
I have started using this new concealer by Rimmel called the ‘Match-Perfection Concealer & Highlighter‘.
It has been about 2 weeks now. If you guys remember I last purchased this and was not happy. I have not had the best of luck with concealers actually! Ever!
I have some under-eye darkness. It might look scary but I decided to post a before and after-concealer picture.
So it does make a difference. I am a little scared of using too much concealer and ending up looking like a racoon. I normally apply concealer first (after moistuerier) ,then foundation and then just a dab more to brighten the under-eye area.
Now I definitely do not see the highlighter part of this product. It might conceal but it does not highlight in my opinion. For $5.99 I think it is a good product to purchase and experiment with. But then again I only saw two shades – ‘Light/Medium’ and ‘Fair/Medium’. Luckily the ‘Light/Medium works on my skin-tone but I just do not appreciate brands coming out with such a measly color selection. What about us colored women?
My Verdict : I do not yet know if I will go back to it in the future but this definitely is the first good concealer in my budget that I have come across !
The next product is a make-up remover wipe. I got a sample of Pond’s wipes in the second Target beauty bag but have not used it yet. I kinda am a borderline product hoarder in some ways ! But I am right now using the CVS brand of make-up wipes ,which they claim are comparable to Pond’s ‘Clean Sweep’. I have not used the latter so I will just have to say what mattered to me. I am not sure how much I paid for this but am sure it was under $5 !
I was last using these. And Yes, I got attracted by the packaging, the convenient pricing and the brand-name but they really did not deliver. You know how these wipes are a little wet to the touch, these just felt a tad dry. Not dry dry just not moist enough. They cleaned off the muck fine but I felt like it was not very smooth. If you know what I mean.
The CVS wipes on the other hand could feel a little too moist, well atleast to me. I some times feel they could be easily dripping hehe! But when it comes to the job, these babies perform a good job. They take off all my make-up, the grime off my face and have a gentle,gentle scent. I am not a lover of no-scent products. I like a gentle scent. I do feel my skin feels wet after cleaning cause of the over-moistness but it dries away quickly. And I feel I can deal with this better than a wipe which is more on the drier side.
But hey that’s just me!
I might want to try other make-up remover wipes out there in the market but I will definitely reach out for these if needed.
