BURBERRY – Cashmere Concealer (Ivory) Review & Swatch

Price: $42 CAD
Size: 0.08 oz
Shade: Ivory (No. 00)

Burberry came out with a lot of beauty product recently and I picked up this one after hearing great things. It has become a staple in the routine and here is my review.


PACKAGING

The concealer comes in a tan colour and textured box which is quite unique. And the concealer itself comes in a plastic grey tube with a felt tip applicator that allows you to apply the product in an even amount. The applicator has a twist backing which controls the amount- to keep you from using too much (since it is not a cheap product – could also save you some money). Personally, I felt like the concealer did not come with a lot of product so the twist backing helps reduce displacing too much. Overall, the packaging is great however, for a $42 concealer I do expect a little more of a luxurious touch – otherwise the packaging looks pretty and functions well. Not to mention travel friendly too.


PRODUCT

The concealer comes in a couple of shades, and I found that the Ivory shade worked well for my yellow under toned skin (unlike many other brands). The concealer has a light to medium coverage that is buildable and is thin and weightless on the skin. I do not recommend this concealer if you are looking for a high coverage concealer as you will waste a lot trying too achieve what you want (not worth the money in that case). The concealer acts a lot like a light boost to the skin to freshen out the appearance under your eyes. The concealer does not crease (especially when set with powder) and wears well throughout the day, in addition the formula is lightweight and wears comfortably. Overall, the concealer works well to brighten and cover my undereye area while still being lightweight and natural looking. I would definitely, recommend this concealer if only the price tag was a little lower, especially since you only get a small amount of product.

Urban Decay – Electric Pressed Pigment Palette Review & Swatch

Price: $59 CAD *on sale: $24 USD*
Size: 10 x 0.04 oz

I thought it would be a good time to review this palette since October just arrived – so HALLOWEEN season has begun.*just a little plug – but I will be doing Halloween looks on my Instagram so hope over there if you are interested to see that* However – without realizing Sephora actually no longer carries this palette and the only place to find it, is on the Urban Decay website (it’s on sale though!). This probably means the palette is going to be / is already discontinued – so if you were interested I would say purchase it before it is gone!
