On a daily basis, I’m not one for covering up my skin with make up products like concealer, foundation, powder etc. I spend too much time on my skincare routine for that! However, there are times when it is hard to avoid make up, and I had one such occasion at the weekend. Around the middle of last week, I got an insect bite on my cheek (slap bang in the middle…sod’s law!) and knew I’d probably have to end up covering it up with something for my cousin’s wedding, which was on Saturday. I started the day with my GOSH foundation, which nicely evened out my skin tone at the outset.
By the time it got to the evening party, the bite mark was working its way through my foundation, and my under-eyes were looking dire. I was sharing a hotel room with my sister and I borrowed her concealer – the Natural Collection CoverUp Cream in Fair.
Although the photo looks quite dark, it’s really a very light concealer and perfect for my skin, as both have yellow undertones. I used a little under my eyes, obviously on the bite and just around my nose too. The consistency is gorgeously creamy and non-drying – anything that looked remotely dry on my skin is a real no-no for me. I would post a photo of myself from the night, but far too much wine was drunk for me to look decent in any picture…
I bought the concealer for myself today in case of any further emergencies on special occasions, and I’m really glad I did. The product is fantastic, and….it is £1.99. You didn’t read that wrong – it is seriously that price. I haven’t tried any high-end concealers, but if I did this is the kind of standard I would expect. I believe it’s sold exclusively at Boots, and may even be a Boots brand.
So, I have nothing negative to report from this concealer – try it for yourself to see!
