Maybelline Fit me Concealer Review

Hey all,

A few days ago, i went on a drugstore hunt looking to replace the concealer i was using as it was running out. Lucky me, i went to Boots on the same day they had their big sale and most Maybelline products were on sale. As you may or may not know, Maybelline is one of my favourite drug store brand, so i bought a few items. One of the item is the Maybelline Fit me Concealer.

If you remember from a few posts back, when Maybelline first released their new Fit me foundation, I wrote a review on that. (You can check that out here) As i have already tried the Fit me foundation and liked it, i thought to myself, why not try the Concealer as well?

ImageSo this is what the packaging looks like. It is very similar the to Fit me foundation bottles. Simple and easy to caring around with.

ImageI got the concealer in shade 15, which is one of the lightest shades they had.

There was a good range of shades from dark to light, which i think will suit most peoples skin tones. There was even a guide on buying the right concealer right next to these products, which can be really helpful when youre not as good at picking out shades or just unsure of which shade will suite you.

ImageAs per normal concealers, it comes with a brush/applicator. The applicator scoops up a good amount of concealer. However sometimes it may be too much. I also find that with these applicators, they dont reach the bottom of the tube, so when there is little product left, its hard to scrape out the tiny bit thats left on the bottom. It annoys me when the brush doesnt reach the bottom and i have no other ways to get it out, and its a waste to throw it away while there is still some product left in the tube.

This concealer is very blendable and does not feel cakey or heavy. It has a light to medium coverage, so i tend to build it up more if i need it. However, sometimes i feel that this concealer is a little too watery for my liking. So to deal with that, i prime my face, then il let it sit on my under eye area for a few seconds before blending it out and applying foundation. I find that applying it this way helps with getting more coverage. It is a little time consuming though, but i just take that time to do other stuff, like reading other blogs or updating my tumblr.

Will i buy it again?

Yes, since im currently using the Fit me foundation, i think this concealer is a perfect match for it. I also like the range of shade they have in store and will definitely be buying some of their other shades for blending etc.

Hope you have found this review useful!

Maybelline 24hr Super Stay (read my thoughts on it here

How about concealer?
I using Maybelline’s Fit Me concealer or Revlon in (02 Light).

Do you know your undertone colour?
yes.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I very rarely use them, unless im at a photoshoot or any other modeling job.

What brand of mascara do you use?
I change my mascara all the time, but currently im using Maybelline Falsies in Black Drama.

Sephora or MAC?
SEPHORA. Remember going in there when i was a young child and loving all the make up products. in fact i still do.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Nope.

Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
Only when i do use eyeshadow, i use Urban Decay’s primer potion. I dont usually use eyeshadow on my day to day makeup.

For the face?
I dont use a primer, just moisturiser and other creams.

What is your favorite eyeshadow? (colour or shade?)
My most used eyeshadow shade is my lilac coloured eyeshadow pot from Lulu Castagnette. Its subtle enough for a day look and can be transitioned into a evening look with a touch of eyeliner.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Both, liquid liner on my top lash line and pencil liner in my waterline.

What’s your favorite lipstick?
I dont really use lipstick that often, i often go for a lighter look with lipgloss. However, at the moment, my favourite lipstick is Maybelline Natural Glow (shade 635). My favourite lipgloss is MAC LipGelee in shade Glosspitality.

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes. as a student the prices are reasonable and affordable. I also think that sometimes drug store products are overlooked just because they are labeled as “drugstore” products.

Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
not really.

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
When people pile on too much make up. Make up is meant to enchace your beauty, not cover it up! 😉

Which celebrity always has great makeup?
This is difficult, there are just too many to name. I pin all the pictures i find on the web onto my Make up Board on Pinterest, so click here to see all the celebs and models with simply gorgeous make up.

If you could leave the house using just one makeup item, what would you use?
Foundation/tinted moisturiser.

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup?
Yes I occasionally do. In fact, i hardly wear any makeup day to day..

What do you think of makeup?
I see make up as a tool to enhance beauty and it is also fun to experiment with all the different types of make up products there are.  I think everyone has a different approach to make up, with different end results, thus make up enables us to further express ourselves.

 

❤Blogging:
How many hours a week do you spend writing/editing posts?
Reviews typically take up to 3 hours to type up as I have to research on the product. If it is a product sent directly from the company, I also have to try it out for at least a week before writing the reviews on it. Therefore I only post reviews once a week, as it will give me enough time to try out the product before writing about it.

When is it easiest for you to blog?
In the evening, with some candles.

What makes writing behind the computer comfortable for you?
I can write drafts and plan out what my review main topics are going to cover, and go back and edit if necessary.

How long does it take for you to prep a post?
As mentioned above, i usually take 1 week or more to try the product on myself before writing any reviews. I also like to research more about the product itself before writing any thing.

Who is a blogger that you read who deserves more readers?
As im new to this blogging thing, I dont really know any bloggers. If you would like me to check out your blog, please leave a comment below with your URL!

❤ I hope this was somewhat entertaining for you! I tag all of my readers to do this post and be sure to link it to me as i would love to read your answers to these questions!

Let me know if you would like more of these types of post, in addition to the weekly reviews.

As usual, if you would like me to specifically review any products, feel free to leave a comment below.

Have a good week!

See you next tuesday with another review!

Much love,

Nicole.

OROGOLD 24K GOLD MOISTURIZING DAY CREAM

Hey darlings, 

Im back again with another review for you.

I am really excited to review this OROGOLD moisturiser cream. Why? Ive heard many great things about this product and the sales assistant at the store promised me that this would be the best day cream Ive ever used. Was she right? Well, read on to find out! 😉 

Image

 

(picture from OROGOLD reviews)

According to OROGOLD Cosmetic‘s website this Day cream is “designed to help reduce the appearance of expression lines, relax wrinkles ad restore softness, smoothness and radiance. This unique moisturiser melts on skin contact and help make those tiny dry areas disappear without making your skin feel oily”. In additon, this day cream, and any product from OROGOLD from their Gold Collection, contains 24K gold, which helps your skin to produce more collagen and reduce wrinkles. Not only does it have 24K gold in it, it also has Green Tea extracts, which helps reduce inflammation and skin damage , vitamins C and E which are all good for your skin. For more information, click here.   

So what do I think about this product…..

When I was first given this product, I have to admit, I was a little skeptical at first. Gold helps your skin?? Im a student! I dont have money for that! However, upon opening my little container of this moisturiser, I was surprised at the unique smell of this moisturiser. It smelt sweet and fresh, but the scent was not obvious, so this product can be used under makeup or perfume. As for the texture, It applied really smoothly onto my skin, leaving my dry areas moisture with the perfect amount of oil. However, when applied onto normal areas on my face, i personally felt like there was too much oil and tend to make my skin more oily than i would like it. It hasnt made me break out , which is a good thing, however, i feel the need to wash my face (the area which is normal skin type) a couple of hours after using this product. 

Price wise, it is selling on OROGOLD’s website for $128.00 (that’s £81.77 for my british readers..) It is a little pricey for the average student, however, you might want to think about getting this product as a long term purchase (combined with another drug store moisturiser), and use it only when your skin is dry. You also dont need a lot of product for one application, so your bottle will last you quite a long time. 

I would reccomend this product to people with DRY skin only. I find that it really helped with my dry forehead and it reduced the slight peeling on my forehead, leaving it feel rejuvenated and hydrated. I think this product is relatively new in the UK, with their new boutiques stores in Oxford Circus and Covent Garden (those are the only 2 Ive spotted in the last weeks, feel free to correct me if im wrong!) 

This product was definitely worth trying, if not for the price, i would probably repeat purchase. If you have DRY skin, this product is for you! 

 

Hope you have found this review useful!! Have you guys tried any of OROGOLD other products before? What are your views on this moisturiser?

Have a good week and if you would like me to review a specific item, please feel free to comment below.

Tune in next Tuesday for another review! :)

Much Love,

Nivea Regenerating Night Cream

Hello lovelies, 

i’m back with another moisturiser review. Today i shall be reviewing Nivea Regenerating Night Cream. This product was recommended to me by a sales assistant working in Nivea’s concession in a Boots store.  

Image

 

This product can be bought in Boots and Superdrug (both at £4.35). 

During the winter seasons, my skin can get very dry. This night cream helps me deal with the dry areas of my face without leaving my skin feeling too oily.  Even though it says night cream, it can be used in the morning as well. I use this once in the morning with in my foundation routine whenever my skin feels a little dehydrated, and another time in the evening after I’ve removed my makeup.  

After applying this night cream to my face, your skin instantly feels refreshed and there is a slight shine to the face, giving the face a healthy glow. 

The price of this might be a little steep for a student, however superdrug and boots often have major sales and this item is often reduced to around £2/3 ( this depends on the sales) which is a extremely good deal.  

 

Would I buy this product again? Definitely! Ive been using this for almost half a year now and i really love the effect of it.  I will recommend it to my friends, neighbours and even random strangers on the street! 

 

Hope you found this review useful!
