Oh Spring: how I love you! Not only do your warmer temps and lighter evenings quite simply put a smile on my face and a spring in my step but you’re also a fantastic excuse for a make-up makeover; at least, that’s what I’m telling myself.
I’m a creature of habit. Always have been and probably always will be. Once I find a product that I love and adore, it takes a lot for me to budge. I do love trying new things but there are certain items in my makeup bag that I just don’t mess with like foundation and concealer. Until now. L’Oreal Paris changed the game.
I’ve sworn by Collection’s Lasting Perfection concealer for yonks. That, coupled with Rimmel’s Wake Me Up concealer for those days that my skin is just not playing ball, and I thought I had my concealer game down. I was wrong.
One random trip to Boots ago, I stumbled across the Lumi Magique Concealer and boy, did I fall in love. Yes, the packaging is copper so my magpie-eye was immediately drawn anyway. But what lies beneath the glossy outside is truly wondrous; a highlighting concealer that is the perfect shade for my skin and genuinely makes my skin that bit more radiant.
Due to the twist bottom of the concealer, I was worried that this might make the case messy in fear of using too much product but no; it’s easy to control and a little goes a long way. I dab it under my eyes, across my cupids bow and on my cheek bones for a subtle coverage that’s super easy to blend either with your fingers or a buffing brush (I use the Sigma Beauty Round Kabuki F82). Unlike my beloved Collection or Rimmel concealers, this doesn’t leave a matte finish but rather a highlighty glow making this the perfect everyday concealer that will truly brighten the skin.
I couldn’t recommend this Lumi Magique Concealer more if I tried. Yes; for £8.50, it’s not the worlds cheapest concealer. But you really are paying for quality, longevity and we musn’t forget, that all important copper gold packaging.
