One of the most raved about concealers in recent years must be the NARS Soft Matte concealer. This is really one of those products that took the market by storm and just hit it with a bang. It promises to have an intense level of coverage yet still look natural on the skin. Let’s see whether the NARS Soft Matte concealer makes good on that promise.

Essence concealers are a bit hit or miss for me, but their affordable price point mean I keep on trying them. For a long time, Essence concealers didn’t come in a light enough shade for me, but they are doing some now that seem light enough. What do I think about the Essence Camouflage + Matt & Healthy Glow concealers?

Look who is super late to the party? Yep, that would be me. After hearing so many people rave about this concealer I finally decided to bite the bullet. Well, not really. This is the third time that I have tried this concealer. Three times! That’s perseverance. And you know what they say: three time’s a charm. So how did I fare with the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer after trying it so much?

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?
