Since I was given a not so kutis-artista skin (I have acne-prone skin by the way), I skipped from one brand to another to find the foundation that fits my needs. Thankfully, those that I tried did not give me any break out and could use them alternately depending on my mood. My money doesn’t gone to waste lols.
I usually stick to liquid foundations so using concealer is NEW to me. Most of my foundations offers medium coverage so there is no need a separate concealer. But since I am loving makeups more and more, I guess I have to start exploring the concealing art as well.
I got these Wet n Wild babies from my Luxola haul and to tell you honestly, my expectations wasn’t that high thinking these are just usual concealer and pressed foundation same like other drugstore brands. But these proved me wrong.
Its my first time to buy face products via online so choosing the right shades is gamble to me. What if its too light nor too dark for me?? Luckily, I got the correct shade! Yehey! I got E812A Light for the concealer and E822B Fair/Light for the pressed powder.
My bare face in the left photo, kindly excuse my skin imperfections – big open pores, discolorations and acne marks. Nyay! The right photo is with concealer and face powder on my face. The concealer has a pretty descent coverage and I know I can do better than this – more blending skills perhaps. I used my ring finger to blend. What do you use in blending a concealer? Your finger, concealer brush or a sponge? This concealer has a matte finished by the way!
The pressed powder claims to be radiant and has a weightless finish which is definitely true. I’ve been using this concealer + pressed powder for a week now and I’m loving the results. Since I use the concealer to hide my blemishes and set it with just the pressed powder, I started to oil up after 8 hours! However, my big pores did not really cover really well and my dry patches around my lips are peeking through which is still fine with me. I love the light feeling on the skin! Glad my skin can still breathe on top of my make up.
