Tarte Shape-tape Concealer V.S. Kat Von D Lock-it Concealer

wp-1476168974114.jpg

Hello Everyone!

Two well known brands have released new concealers. The concealers are very comparable in formula, so I wanted to give you guys my thoughts on both of them…

What is a concealer?

A concealer can be used in two ways: to cover up a blemish or highlight certain areas. Either way concealers are used to conceal. If you wanted to cover up a blemish on your face, you would choose a concealer close to your foundation shade. If you wanted to highlight your face, you would choose a concealer one or two shades lighter than your foundation.

Price

  • Tarte concealer- $24.00
  • Kat Von D concealer- $26.00

  • Kat Von D has the more creative packaging

Which do I prefer?

Honestly, I love both concealers once I learned how to work with them. If you have dry skin, like myself, you may not like these concealers. They are super thick, which can cause them to sink into the fine lines under the eyes. Also, they both dry super fast, which leaves you not much time to blend out. In order for me to make these work, I have to moisturize under my eyes really well and blend the concealers out with a damp beauty blender (sponge). Using a damp sponge, can help retain the moisture under my eyes and thin out the concealer. Once blended out, the concealers are beautiful, and make your under eyes look airbrushed. I recommend both concealers if you’re looking for something that will cover everything. Just keep in mind that they do dry fast so work in small sections!

Have you guys tried one of these concealers?

Hey Guys!

Today is going to be a review on three Reema Beauty makeup products. Honestly, I have never heard of Reema Beauty Cosmetics, until they reach out to me to review some of their products. But they are a well known brand, that has created a ton of makeup…

  1. Highlight and Glow Powder (After Glow) $22.50
  2. Powder Blush (New in Town) $19.50
  3. Lipstick (Cougar) $19.50

Here I’m wearing all three products:

My Final Thoughts:

Overall the products are great! Like I said above Reema Beauty was nice enough to send me these products. But if I had to purchase these with my own money, I wouldn’t have. The blush and highlight are super pigmented and blend very well. I just don’t think they are worth $20 each. There’s nothing super special about them to cost that much. Wet N Wild has better highlighters and blushes for under $5. The lipstick is very creamy and pigmented but again the price is a little expensive. I love the way this makeup look turned out and I definitely will continue to use these three products from Reema Beauty. Out of all three, the blush is definitely my favorite…
