Beauty Test Drive: LORAC Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen

As a lady with more than a little redness on her face, concealer is one of my must-have beauty products. Concealers come in many forms, like sticks, tubes, and pots, but my particular favorite is a pen or wand. With a foundation wand, you can apply it directly onto your skin and pat it dow…

Beauty Test Drive: Kevyn Aucoin’s Sensual Skin Enhancer

My pale, winter skin had set in, and I needed to update my go-to concealer for a lighter shade. Instead of purchasing the same solution, I opted to try the well-reviewed Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. This product claims to nourish skin with jojoba and honey, while providing waterproof, crease proof, and transfer resistant coverage.

Beauty Test Drive: Benefit’s Fakeup Concealer

Concealer is one of those beauty products that isn’t the least bit fun to purchase. It’s a lot more exciting to go straight to the eyeshadows and lip glosses, you know? But the un-fun stuff like foundation and concealer is what someone with, say, redness around their T-zone uses to get an unblemished palette, so…

Beauty Test Drive: Benefit’s Perk Up Artist Concealer Set

I feel pretty lucky that the most annoying beauty problem that I face on a regular basis is dark undereye circles and redness around my nose and chin. Those are easily fixable, if not particularly “sexy.” I mean, no one gets excited about going to shop for concealer! But with the Perk Up Artist set,…

Beauty Test Drive: The Body Shop BB Cream

BB cream is one of those makeup products that just appeared on the American market in the past year, causing every woman here to scratch her chin and say, “Hmmm, do we really need this?!” BB cream is basically a combination foundation/moisturizer/primer and sometimes it’s got sunscreen in it, too.  Some people swear by their…

Beauty Test Drive: Benefit Boi-Ing Concealer

I’ve long complained in these Beauty Test Drives that I have dry skin. The driest skin. Well, I’m going to complain about it again! But this time it is to tell you that Benefit’s Boi-Ing concealer, which has a greasy, almost melted-waxy consistency, is a super choice for quick coverups on the go. Or, i…

Make Up Forever HD Powder Is Behind Hollywood’s Concealer Blunders

The paps snapped Eva Longoria on an apparent date with actor Kevin Connolly. And of course everyone noticed the extreme white concealer under Eva’s eyes. She’s the latest celebrity to sport this concealer blunder. In 2009, Nicole Kidman inspired a beauty post on how to get under-eye concealer right. We expect celebrities to have the…

Beauty Test Drive: Make Up Forever HD Concealer

In our ongoing efforts to find the ideal concealer for these hot months, we gave Make Up Forever’s HD concealer wand a try. We were impressed by the smooth feel, oil-free aspect and the fact that it left us neither dry nor slippery. Our only gripe with the stuff is that you have to be…

Beauty Test Drive: Liquid TimeBalm Spot Concealer

Know what’s not cute? Sweating through your makeup. Also not cute? The icky things that drying concealers do to your face as they try to banish your zits. But come summer (by which we mean the clogged pores of summer), we have a habit of turning to concealers with harsh ingredients out of pimply desperation.

Beauty Test Drive: Fresh Under Eye Concealer and Brightener

I’ve whined about the state of my under eye circles before, and my continued pre-occupation with them means I’m not done experimenting with fixes. This week, it was Fresh’s new Supernova Radiance Brightening Pen. Yes, the name is ridiculous, but the brightening aspect is legit. The company claims the pen acts as a concealer and…

Beauty Test Drive: Laura Mercier Under Eye “Secret” Concealer

I don’t drink coffee and I barely sleep, meaning that the dark circles under my eyes are the stuff of legend. I’d almost gotten to a point where I considered them accessories and was planning to give up on hiding their intensity. Blessedly, a kind soul at Sephora wouldn’t let it happen. She introduced me…

The 4 Makeup Brushes You Actually Need

Every time I go to Sephora to get some concealer in an attempt to cover up my under-eye zombie circles, some perky salesgirl tries to convince me that I can’t possibly apply said concealer without an army of extra brushes. Ditto on everything from blush to eyeshadow and even lip gloss. Unless you’re a hardcore…

Beauty Test Drive: La Mer The Radiant Concealer

Cult skin company La Mer has a new-ish concealer and you’d better believe we were down to take it for a spin. In fact, some of us around here are real concealer devotees because, well, if your skin doesn’t look good, that fire engine red lipstick isn’t necessarily going to distract anyone. Plus, it’s alway…

Kat Von D Launches Tattoo Concealer For White People

Kat Von D has launched a concealer with Sephora that promises to hide tattoos, imperfections, and dark circles. “If you wanna hide a tattoo just for one day, the proper concealer can make that happen!” says Kat. “No one has to see what you don’t want them to see!” She advises concealing your tattoos whe…
