Essence 2 in 1 Makeup and Concealer

Hello beauties, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

So a while ago I did a small shop in Wilko and purchased some products from the wonderful Essence brand. There are a couple of products that I got that have really stood out for me and one of them being the Camouflage 2 in 1 foundation and concealer.

At just £3.80 for 30ml of product it’s a bargain. It’s a squeezy tube too which I love. I’ve not used a foundation-concealer product before so I was looking forward to using this when I got it home, but it has been sitting on my dressing table waiting for the less sunny and warm weather to arrive so that I could put away the lightweight foundations and BB Creams. I actually got around to wearing this last weekend and I found it to be fantastic! I applied it using a Real Techniques Buffing Brush then used a damp sponge to press over my skin once I applied the foundation. I took the product over my eyes paying more attention to the inner corners where I’m a bit dark. For me I think that this is a medium to full coverage, and it covered all the issues I have with my skin. I get redness on my left cheek, it was covered, I get redness around my nose, it was covered, I get redness on my chin, it’s covered by this foundation, and I also don’t need to use powder to set it. If you prefer a lighter application then apply using a damp sponge rather than a brush, and that’s just my opinion of course. I also noticed after wearing for a while that it doesn’t settle into lines or cake under my eyes. It’s long-lasting and it doesn’t transfer to the collar of  my clothes or my baby Granddaughters clothes when I’m squishing her! For me, this is a fabulous face base product, one that I shall be using a lot and will be a definite re-purchase.

If you don’t have a Wilko near you, you can purchase this and all Essence products online HERE.

A Small Essence Haul from Wilko…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

Mark and I just had to get into the car and get out for a while on Sunday, after we had a really rubbish week. I wanted to purchase a few Essence cosmetics goodies from Wilko online but because the rubbish week was down to a bit of online fraud on Mark’s bank account we decided to go to our nearest Wilko store instead, safer that way.

I did write myself a list of Essence products I wanted but only managed to get a few from said list, our local store didn’t have everything in, but what I did buy I was happy with. I’ll be writing reviews on EAB soon.

I’m really looking forward to trying the Essence Camouflage 2 in 1 Foundation & Concealer, will I still need my concealer? We’ll see, and I will get back to you, soon  It was only £3.80. I’ve always wanted to try a lip oil, and when I saw this one by Essence I thought that I’d give it a go. I’ve no idea what a lip oil is for, does it colour, does it condition, does it hydrate? I’ll get back to you on that. The lip oil was just £2.00. I have wanted to try an Essence mascara for ages, especially one that claims to give “extreme volume and curl” my eyelashes or rather the state of them is really depressing me. I’d give my right arm to be able to go and get eyelash extensions done but until my numbers come up in the Lotto I shall keep on looking for my holy grail mascara. Could this be the one? I’ll let you know. The Essence False Lashes mascara is £2.80. I hate my lips as much as I do my eyelashes! If I could afford lip fillers I wouldn’t hesitate in getting them done! So until I do get that big Lotto cheque it’s lip plumping products for me! I picked up the Essence Volume On! lip plumping lipgloss, it’s a pretty nude peach shade, so I’ll give it a go and get back to you with my thoughts. The Essence Volume On! lip plumping lipgloss is £2.30 and finally I picked up a Nail Caring Oil it contains Apricot oil so I’m looking forward to trying that too. I’m in the middle of trialing some nail products at the moment, so I’ll let you know what the Essence product is like, soon. The Essence Nail Caring Oil is just £2.00.

I purchased my Essence products from my local Wilko stores but you can purchase online from Wilko too, HERE or from the Essence website HERE

Thank you for reading, I’ll be back soon with my thoughts on my Essence purchases.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

 I’m so late to the party when it comes to this concealing product, I’m pretty sure you will probably have read so many blog reviews and seen so many You Tube videos where this is featured, but hey, better late than never! This is of course Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.

collectionconcealer

This concealer has won multiple awards which I didn’t realise. It’s water-resistant and transfer proof too, great for the hot weather and also when the colder wetter days are here. I used this under my eyes and also over my eyelids. It’s a thick creamy consistency and blends beautifully. It concealed the darkness I have on the inner corners of my eyes, and it covered the slight discolouration on my eyelids. I used it under my eyes and blended it using a patting motion with my ring finger, it’s perfect. When I applied a dusting of powder to set it the concealer didn’t sink into any lines at all. I have a bit of redness around my nose, on my left cheek and my chin, and it covers all those for me. I always apply my concealer after my foundation or BB Cream, and it works perfectly with either. I am also confident enough to say that I could go out with just this concealer on my skin, a bit of mascara and lip gloss, that’s how good I think it is! It really is Perfection. This concealer will be a re-purchase when I’ve run out, it’s going to become a staple in my makeup collection. I have the shade Cool Medium 2, but it’s available in other shades too.

I purchased Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer from Superdrug HERE.

Bell Cosmetics Hypoallergenic Skin Camouflage Concealer….

Hello again beauties!

I’ve recently discovered Bell Hypoallergenic Cosmetics, makeup for sensitive skin. Believe me you don’t have to have sensitive skin to enjoy this brand, from what I’ve used so far I can see it becoming incredibly popular! Bell Cosmetics have everything going for them in my book, they are cruelty free, vegan/vegetarian friendly, Dermatologist approved and they won’t break the bank either, and I found them on the fabulous website (the place to be for all your beauty and makeup needs) Beauty Crowd.

IMG_5490

I purchased a couple of Bell Cosmetics products from Beauty Crowd, and this is the first one that I’m sharing with you, it’s the Skin Camouflage & Concealer. Pretty little palette in shiny black with the branding in silver (I think it’s silver!) It holds 2 shades of beige concealer which you can customise to your own needs when concealing any blemishes and imperfections, a green corrector which helps to hide spider/thread veins and any redness you have and there’s a salmon pink shade to help with concealing darkness under the eyes, adding lightness. I applied my usual foundation before adding the concealer and correctors.

IMG_5626The four separate creams are really lovely and soft which I applied with my fingers, and from the warmth of my digits the creams seemed to become even easier to blend onto the skin. I have a bit of darkness on the inner corners of my eyes, so I applied the pink corrector, I don’t have a lot of  redness, only on the chin and a couple of broken capillaries on my left cheek, I applied the green corrector. I do have a few spots at the moment so I used the beige concealer to cover them. I then used a powder to set everything in place. During the day I kept an eye on my makeup to make sure that everything that I corrected and concealed was still just that. None of the correctors had sunken into the pores on my cheeks or into the lines of my eyes and my spots weren’t glowing like a beacon! Some correctors that I’ve used in the past did have a drying effect on my skin, but with the Bell  Cosmetics Hypoallergenic Camouflage Concealer I didn’t get any of that.  For just £5.95 it’s great value for great skin and you can find it HERE on Beauty Crowd, along with other superb makeup and beauty brands. NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON BEAUTY CROWD, HOWEVER I HAVE FOUND IT ON AMAZONUK HERE 

 

Thank you for stopping by to my little corner of the internet today.
