If you’ve stumbled upon my page looking for Sephora Spring Sale Recommendations, then I am here to help! If you’re like me, these past two years I spent next to nothing on makeup products. However, that money in turn was spent on skincare and devices to keep up spa services while there were lockdowns and closures. So no I can’t say I was on a “no-buy”. I am however excited to fall in love with makeup again and below are my recos!
Today I’m sharing my thoughts on one of Fenty’s newest releases. The Fenty Pro Filt’R Concealer. To accompany the amazing Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Which is still highly raved about, after being released in 2017.
Let’s talk packaging. The Concealers are encased in aesthetically pleasing tubes, made from a non-slip material. Grip is important to those like myself, who have accidentally dropped at least a dozen glass tubes of concealer in their lifetime. So 10/10 from me for this one.
The formula is creamy and provides a FULL coverage, matte finish. It’s a one step correct and conceal kind of product. As it’s able to both conceal discolouration and brighten tired/dull looking skin. The coverage is intense and hence why you only need a very small amount of product to get the job done. I don’t use my normal swiping application method as I do with other concealers but rather apply 3 small dots to the area that I’m concealing.
I personally prefer dewier formulations when it comes to concealer but then I have to compromise the wear time. Although thePro Filt’R Concealeris completely matte. I’m able to make it work for me, by generously prepping my skin before application. I can get away without setting the Pro Filt’R Concealer and don’t experience any creasing until the 6/7 hour mark.
Make Up For Ever recently launched their Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Self- Setting Concealers! It’s always an exciting moment whenever MUFE adds to their Ultra HD line up! I tried out a few shades over the last few weeks and have finally sat down to write my thoughts.
Available in 22 shades, the newUltra HD Self-Setting Concealeris best described as a medium to full, buildable coverage concealer, with a natural finish. Make Up For Ever’s official description states that it diffuses light and provides up to 12 hours of creaseless wear.
The Ultra HD self-setting concealer has a part fluid and cream consistency. This provides you with a bit of extra time to perfect the application of your concealer.
You’ve probably heard beauty addicts say that a product ‘blends like a dream’ countless times. However, there is no better way to describe the blend-ability of MUFE’s Self-Setting Concealer, than just that. It effortlessly blends into the skin, regardless of what tool you choose to use. Whether a sponge, MUFE’s concealer brush or your fingers. You WILL get a seamless finish.
It has a luminous finish that isn’t short lived. The skin around my under eyes is incredibly dry and I’ve noticed a much more fresh appearance, even hours down the line.
In regards to the ‘self-setting’ claim, I can vouch that if you have dry to combination skin like myself, it is in fact correct!
I tried out the following shades:
31 Macadamia has a neutral undertone and what I would opt for on a daily basis, for natural glam.
33 Desert has a yellow undertone and ideal for more glam looks, aka when I’m looking to brighten the under eyes a little more than usual, to pair with a bolder eye look.
34 Golden Sand, naturally is the darkest shade out of the three and not suitable for my complexion.
I would really suggest trying this out if you’re someone who likes a natural, luminous finish. Especially for those like my Mom, who is deterred by concealers because of their heavy, cakey appearance but really appreciates the consistency of MUFE’s Self-Setting Concealer.
In the makeup world there is nothing more gratifying than, when a product that you suggest, lives up to the hype. If you recommend a holy grail product, in actuality it must be that. I recently tried the highly raved about, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and have been wearing it for almost 4 weeks now. If you’d like to know how this concealer performed on someone with dark sunken under eyes. Then keep reading to find out!
I previously reviewed the Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation here on the blog. After seeing incredible results and a finish that couldn’t be any more perfect for my skin type. How could I not put the Wet N Wild Photo Focus Concealer to the test?
