Review: Essence Stay Natural Concealer

Hey Beauties,

About two weeks ago I decided to try out a new concealer from Essence: Stay Natural Concealer in the colour 'Soft Honey'.

Quality of product: It is a liquid type of concealer, creamy and easily blendable. The colour I chose matched my skin perfectly. It has light to medium coverage which may not be suitable to cover severe acne scars.

Amount of product: The fact that disappointed me the most about this product is that after a week and a half from when I bought it, it was already finished. Granted, for its price I was not expecting it lasting for a long time, however a week and half seems too little to me.

Packaging: it is a pen like product, that is, twisting the end and the product comes out from the brush. A defect this packaging has is that after you stop twisting the end, product still keeps on coming out. Therefore, there is excessive waste of the concealer.

Brush: this is the part that I liked most about this product. It is a synthetic bristle brush and it applies the product really well without any streaks.
Price: it is inexpensive, as all Essence products are.

Overall: I was disappointed with this particular concealer, it did not meet my expectations. It is ideal for those who do not use concealer frequently.However, for those who use concealer everyday, like me, may want to search for another concealer.

Have you used this concealer? What do you think about it?

Until next time,

Take Care,

Foundation Routine and How to

Hey Beauties :)

So today I am going to share my Foundation Routine. This routine consists of 4 main steps. 

4 main steps

 Step 1:- Very important to always start with cleansed and moisturized skin. This will help the foundation to apply smooth and evenly over the face. First I start with the ELF Color concealer (bottom left). I apply the yellow concealer under my eyes to conceal any shadows and the green to conceal blemishes, redness and other imperfections. 

Step 2:- Next I apply beige (normal concealer) (bottom right) over the color concealer so that the colored concealer is blended even more in the skin and not risk the color to show. 

Step 3:- This is the main step. I apply the foundation (upper left) with the ELF stippling blush in a circular motion all over the face. I use a circular motion so that the foundation is buffed in the skin. This will make the foundation look more natural and without any creases. Always remember to also apply the foundation to your neck so that they match and no foundation lines are visible. 

Step 4:- Last step, set the foundation with powder. I use ArtDeco Pressed Powder (upper right) with a kabuki brush and apply it also in a circular motion. 

With this routine I find that I end up with flawless skin, however keep in mind that certain huge 'monsters' are somewhat difficult to cover up completely haha. 

Also, I want to try a different setting powder, what would you recommend?

I hope this has helped,

Until next time

Take Care
