It’s here! My under-eye concealer entitled “F*ck, I’m Flawless” in shade 3.5 has arrived. And I’m slightly galled to have to tell you that it’s excellent. I’m not going to show you pictures because …. I just don’t want to…. so you will have to take my word for it, but I’m very impressed. And when have I ever lied to you? No, apart from that time. When else?
It goes on feeling a little dry and like the colour is too light but if you brush it on properly, (this is definitely a make-up range that assumes you’re using brushes), and then leave it for five minutes the next time you look in the mirror: ta da! It really does the job and, for £24, does not budge.
I ought to note here that it doesn’t look like Il Makiage signs up to any affiliate link program, (i.e. the thing that makes me money if you buy something through a link here), which is always annoying for me but also deserves some respect I think.
Another new product that arrived was from Trish McEvoy. Jay, the lady who does the PR, read in the previous post that I had run out of my Trish McEvoy under-eye thing and so kindly sent me something new to try, even though my days of being a truly influential influencer are over.
This product is called the Correct and Even Full-Face Protector. Trish McEvoy is one of those brands that flies slightly under the radar – they do not spend millions on marketing and the product is expensive – so it is neither a cheap quick fix nor does it say CHANEL all over it. This, for example, is £40.
But in its defence, it is the most tremendous quality. It is a general all-over concealer rather than specifically for the under-eye. It is highly, highly pigmented so a little goes a very long way. It has a sponge applicator, which I know occasionally puts some people off. But it is a really very brilliant all-purpose concealer and works well dabbed on the inner corner of the eye as a brightener.
And that’s all I’ve got to say today, unless you want to hear my thoughts on this cold I’ve got.
