I often look at my mum's face and wonder how as the age of 68 she has minimal wrinkles? But then I realise that the cursed combination skin (and tendency to be on the overweight side) that we share means that we don't tend to not wrinkle or sag. However, since going back to work after The Boy I have developed shadows. Deep and dark, purple shadows. And no amount of foundation can help me; I'm not sure anything ever will!
That was until about a month ago when I discovered that on Buyapowa they had a deal on Touche Éclat which saw me buying a tube of it for £13! I'm not sure that I'll find another deal like that in the future before I run out, and so I've been using is sparingly. However my shadows are beginning to creep through the wonder-cover-up and so I need to find an alternative.
Which is just as well that last week I was asked to review this new concealer from GOSH which works along the similar theory. Click 'n' Conceal is a new moisturising, buildable concealer that helps to eliminate shadows and imperfections, leaving a clear and even finish. I've never quite understood what it means when they say that they contain 'light reflecting properties', imagining my bags to be covered in hundreds of tiny mirrors! However, whatever they are, it's got them in it too! Available in three shades, and an anti-redness concealer, it's suitable for most skin-tones.
And so, because I like to do things properly and show how it works, I've done something unheard of on this blog: I've photographed myself for you! Admittedly it's only my eye, but it's a start.
Looking at the pictures, there is a definite improvement using the concealers under my eyes; I look less zombie-like and more human. I used the 'light' shade as I
am pale and pasty have a porcelain complexion and, although it had a slight yellow tint to it, it did look natural and blend in well with my foundation and powder. My biggest concern when I look at those pictures is how bloodshot my eyes are; I need some sleep!
At only £6.99 per tube and therefore nearly a quarter of the price of the YSL version, the GOSH Click 'n' Conceal is going to become an essential part of my make-up routine at an affordable price.
