I love cushion foundations.the finish they provide is way more better than a regular foundation . So when I saw this cute pocket cushion concealer on the alive lab website I wanted to try this out



Packaging: This vial glass is fragile one must be very careful as a single fall is going to be fatal. The silver cap is very secure and prevents the product from leaking out . Unlike what the name suggests this does not have a cushion applicator in fact there is metallic roller ball applicator which distributes the concealer. This concealer is small and perfect to carry around but do mind the glass packaging

Product:8ml

About the product

What the brand has to say about this product:
It adheres to the skin through the ball, and produces natural skin by blending with base makeup cosmetics.
 It is easy to cover the lines of your lips quickly and refresh your makeup.


My thoughts:
Firstly shake the vial before uses that way the concealer comes out homogenised.
This concealer is a pink toned  which has a very runny moisturizing texture. It blends so easily onto the skin and gives  sheer to slightly medium coverage. From what I have deduced this is designed to conceal lips for the gradient lip effect or for touch ups on the go. On its own when applied to bare skin this evens out skin tone.  This is definitely a good option to refresh makeup during the day. The cute little vial is very handy and easy to use. This just blurs out the scars and blemishes Slightly  so you do need a full coverage concealer to hide blemishes and scars



For my fair skin the color is a perfect match
I applied this on my lips for the gradient effect and loved how it slightly masked my natural lip color without settling into the fines lines. It didn't dry out my lips and made the lipstick application streak free
I really like the concept of this product and am so happy with the results

The product is provided by the brand for review purpose all the opinion stated is my own

This concealer without any doubt ruled every makeup video posted on Instagram. The MUAs used this to highlight, color correct, contour, conceal dark circles and for spot treatment. The beauty /makeup bloggers around just sung praises on how amazing this product was. A lot of them featured this concealer in the monthly favorites post. For some it was a Holy Grail product. Being the over skeptic person that I am I watched all the reviews on the YouTube and read many blog posts with doubt as most of the raved products turn out to be trash at times. (a lot of popular you-tubers are paid to give a good review)

My dark circles got bad at the start of this year and my trusted makeup revolution concealer was not doing the job anymore (read review here) so I decided to purchase something new, after reading a lot of review I decided to try the la girl pro hd  concealer . I wanted to try the new concealer by essence and the Nars radiant creamy concealer dupe by Maybelline but then add this to my cart because it was on sale hehe.

Price: 450- 550 Pkr




Packaging:  

 just a regular squeeze tube which has a brush for a applicator and a secure black cap on top. the packaging is travel friendly. I strongly suggest to close the cap immediately after to prevent the concealer from drying up

About the product:

This concealer comes in a vast variety of shades. They have concealer for the palest skin color to the tan color. They even have a pure white shade for highlighting and four shades for color correcting. I originally wanted to choose light ivory but it was out of stock so I ended up adding porcelain to my cart which is slightly lighter than my skin color.

This is a very heavy coverage concealer. It dries to an absolute matte finish so need to use powder over it to lock it in place. This didn’t crease or crumble at all. The beast part is the lasting power. Which is so good? It didn’t budge or fade away even after 8hrs , this also has my mother stamp of approval as it performed well on her mature skin.
I used this to cover up a few acne scar on my face and it just made my skin look flawless. The tube hold 8 ml of product which I think will last me for a long time because I use concealer sparingly only on areas of my face which require a bit more coverage.


The brush applicator is a little tricky to use. See sometimes a lot of product gets squeezed out of the tube which can be waste. And sometimes no product comes out when I squeeze the tube.lol since its winter I can’t comment much on the consistency other than the fact that it can be a little drying , so hydrate your skin well before application, the formula is not to thick it has a water like texture which spreads easily so you have to act fast before it sets.  this concealer really lives up to all the hype.

 I Highly recommend this product

Makeup revolution the matte effect concealer in MC Fair 02



Quantity: unknown

Price: 225 pkr





Packaging:

The packaging is a flimsy black plastic casing (very fragile) similar to that of a lipstick.

About the product:

MUR claims it to be matte however I found it to be the quite opposite it us quite creamy an easy to blend and gives medium coverage Does not conceals the dark circles completely. This shade matches my skin color quite well it’s a cream color concealer and has yellow undertone.



This concealer creases under the eyes so setting it with a powder is must
This is a quite choice if you are a teen looking for a concealer having medium coverage however girls who have acne scars should stay clear of this concealer

 Makeup revolution amazing tube lipgloss in touch



I reviewed this lipgloss in shade baby try here and was quite impressed by the formula so I purchased another shade this time a sheer  coral one

Quantity:11ml

Price 225 pkr



About the product:

This a sheer coral lipgloss which has tiny gold sparkles on it this has a faint candy like scent which vanishes on application . the texture is not sticky and feels quite smooth and comfortable on the lips

Totally recommend this lipgloss it’s budget friendly perfect to apply over lipstick  and is non sticky





thats all 

bye

Makeup revolution has this concealer in three different shades fair, medium and natural 

I have never tried a liquid concealer, I bought it from an online store in shade fair 

Quantity 1.75 ml

Price 300 pkr




About the product

It comes in a clear plastic tube pretty much like a lipgloss tube it also has an applicator similar to that of a lipgloss
The product is creamy but dries to a powder finish so one has to be a bit quick to blend  it into the skin
It has no scent



My thought
Though the product  looks dark in the tube it matches my skin  color quite well  It does a pretty decent job of concealing dark circles and red pimples and a few acne scars. It didn’t break me out

Also it lasted a good time on my oily skin 





However people with dry skin should not buy this as it enhances the dry patches on the skin and its quite a pain to blend once it dries

I think for a beginner this is a good concealer as its not expensive and gives good coverage

You might like it

If you are on a budget
You have oily skin

You might not like it
 
If you have dry skin

My ratings

I rate this product 4 out 5

This can be purchased from just4girls.pk daraz.pk and from makeup revolution website online

Christine Concealer


concealer is one of the essentials on a vanity table ,makeup bag or a purse
as it hides all the imperfections, scars, dark spots, pimples, dark circles 
under the eye area and can be used as a highlighter too

christine is a local pakistani brand makeup which is creating affordable 
makeup products with good quality. i had a concealer of theirs which
 i have been using in my highschool years  to hide my acne scars



Price: rs 200







Quantity: 3.8gms



Shade :

02 medium (the shopkeeper didnt had ivory available at
that time)


Packaging:

its just like a lipstick tube with a black lid and the 
ompanys name written over it in white mine has rubbed off
due to everyday usage





What i think about it:


this is very easy to use as you have to dab it directly on the face 
very much like lipstick.its cramy and blendable and gives pretty much
decent coverage but the lasting power is a bit of a disapointment for me.
it lasts only for 3hrs on my skin(i have oily skin type)but if you set it with
pressed powder on top then it extends to 5hrs which is ok for college
since its not expensive so it wouldnt hurt to try.it has a faint scent





You might like it


if you have dry or normal skin
you want to buy something wgich is locally available


You might not like it


if you have oily skin


My ratings


i give it 3 out of 5
