Maybelline SuperStay 24H Concealer

Concealers are mega important in your makeup routine, I believe that even if you skip anything else, the one thing you can do to look instantly better, refreshed and well-rested is to apply a good concealer. Now, I expect a good concealer to actually really CONCEAL the dark circles under my eyes, to stay all day, not to settle into the fine lines (OK, wrinkles)...I just want it all :-). I love my Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer and it is still my number one, however, I got curious about Maybelline SuperStay 24 H Concealer so I decided to buy it. It costs 9 EUR at Kruidvat, 7,5 ml, my shade is 2 light.
Pros: really strong pigmentation and you only need a tiny bit to conceal large areas, no smell, stays put all day, does not settle into the lines, price.
Cons: it dries quickly on the skin so you need to work quickly and you can definitely put too much on, no SPF
I still absolutely recommend it if you do not want to fork out 20 EUR for Estee Lauder Concealer!

Gosh eyeshadow brush

This is my very first Gosh eyeshadow brush and I absolutely adore it! It cost me only 3,50 EUR at Kruidvat, they were on sale for some strange reason...Anyway, the natural short, incredibly soft bristles make it super easy for any eyeshadow to blend and because I have small eyes, it is very well shaped for me. Love!
