What I Wore on Holiday (Video)

I AM SO SLACKING WITH THE WRITING SIDE OF THINGS. Every summer due to the weather being amazing I tend to lean towards videos which means little baby gets neglected but speaking of videos here's another one! I thought I'd film a few of the outfits I wore whilst I was away so here they are in a pretty little 90 second snippet! If I'm mega slacking on the blog then follow me on all my social links which are all linked on the side!

Clarins Instant Concealer Review

The moment I heard of a high end concealer sold in a hefty 15ml helping, I was intrigued. Looking at things from a money:volume ratio, this effectively slashes the price by two thirds in comparison to a lot of other brands. The generosity of Clarins had me sceptical, could a concealer be all that is they were practically giving it away? Well, there was only one way to find out so I picked this tube up and I thought I'd share what I think.

The shade range of this product is a bit rubbish, I fall into shade 1, and there are 3 in the range but hopefully they will extent the range to suit deeper skintones. I really like the packaging for this product, the pointed tip means you don't end up squeezing out tonnes of product so you don't waste any. The texture is a nice and creamy one so the concealer meshes really well with your skin. It works really well on both dark circles and discolouration so is a nice all rounder and you don't have to have two concealers taking up precious make-up bag space. I think it works great either on it's own for a 'just a dap of concealer and a lick of mascara', with liquid foundation as well as powder foundation (stay tuned for my review on BareMinerals' Blemish Remedy soon!) so I think it is a versatile all rounder, which also happens to be half the size of your standard foundation bottle.

I cannot fault this concealer, except for the shade selection, and after a quick click on my calculator, it is 2 and a half times cheaper than my coveted Nars concealer ml for ml (in fact, this concealer is 50p cheaper without taking the volume into consideration.) and I think if you're somebody like me who has used up multiple tubes of that banging concealer, and you are finding it hard to justify yet another tube of the stuff, I reckon give this a go and I think you'll find the pining subdues itself. This is actually my first Clarins purchase, and I've been pleasantly surprised! If you have any Clarins recommendations leave them down below!
