Concealer Collection

Yepp, these four are the only concealers I have.  I use the almay one for my under eyes because this is the only concealer that doesn't look cakey on my under eye.  The coverage isn't really heavy, but its really creamy and has a good brightening effect.  I love the lancome concealer for spot concealing, I originally bought the lancome concealer for my under eyes, but the coverage is super heavy so it looked very cakey on my under eye and I had to apply very little for it to look natural.  But this concealer is AMAZING for concealing spots, like soooo amazing.  I could have a really red spot, and I would just dab this on with my fingers and set it with powder and it seriously stays on for the whole day.  The last two maybelline concealers are average, I just use them to conceal redness around my nose.
And that's it for my super short post.  I'll be going to Hong Kong very soon so you can expect a huge haul coming up!  Soo excited!

Laura Mercier Mineral Powder + Loreal Extra Volume Collagen Waterproof Review

I got the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder around mid May so I've used it for about half a month and I've got to say that I LOVE IT!!! =)

 I have super dry skin that flakes a lot, and now that I'm back in Calgary for the summer, my dry skin is even worse here because of the dry weather.  But the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder does not look cakey or flakey on my skin even though its super dry these days.  I love this powder soooo much! It's my new HG foundation!! 5 Starsss =)

Next I got the Loreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara in Waterproof.  I really wanted to like this mascara, because the packaging was so pretty, but I found that it didn't really do anything to my lashes, not much volumization at all, and even after several coats I didn't see much of a difference.  I still prefer my Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black.
