I am a lazy makeup wearer when it comes to touching up. I have a tendency to do my makeup in the morning and then just let it me. Most days I even forget to reapply my lipstick. However, I do like to have a few things on hand as you just never know how your day might go. My favorite item for carrying on the go? The Soap & Glory Kick Ass concealer.

I am not going to lie: I am not a massive fan of colour correctors. They just seem like an extra step that doesn’t do anything a regular concealer can’t do either. However, I have been big on using my Bobbi Brown corrector, but that is of course quite expensive. Since that is running low, I want to see if I can find a more affordable alternative. Then I saw that Catrice do some too and so I decided to try two of their colour correctors.

So let’s get something out of the way first: I bought this concealer LONG before the Tarte drama happened earlier this year. So before you think I bought this just now, no, I have owned this concealer for more than a year, but hadn’t really gotten around to using it intensively enough to write a full review. I like trying a product for a while, in different conditions, before I post my verdict on this space. Recently, I decided to bust this out again to truly give it a whirl. What do I think?

When it comes to brows Catrice can be a little bit late on the uptake. Nevertheless, they did finally decide to put out a brow pomade. Years after the pomade craze, but this isn’t just a pomade. It is a 2-in-1 pomade and concealer: one side is a brow product, the other camouflage. You can probably see how they are trying to play into the carved out brow trend. Better late then never of course, but with many pomades already on the market, how does this compare?

So I gave my backlog of reviews a good clean out. I had folders with pictures lurking in the nooks and crannies of my blogging files that go back three years! Three years! Since I cannot review ALL the makeup, I decided to delete those and try to go through some older products at the same time. This is one of them. Essence released this concealer last year and I figured it was about time that I got around to giving it a full review.

Some people love foundation, but when it comes to base products, I’m a concealer kind of girl. I’m not sure why, but I just LOVE trying concealers. It all started with the OG blogger favorite: Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and I haven’t looked back. Even back when I didn’t wear any foundation, I was already wearing concealer. So yeah, concealer is my jam. When L’Oreal released a True Match concealer to go with their True Match foundation which I love, I knew I had to try it.

One of the hypes in the makeup world at this moment? The Make Up Revolution Conceal & Define concealer. After the drama surrounding Tarte and many people boycotting the brand as a consequence, they all needed a replacement for the much loved Shape Tape. And then they discovered this! Whether it was newly released, whether it is supposed to be a much cheaper dupe of Tarte Shape Tape: it was at the right place at the right time. Is it any good?
