Road tested one of the Revlon Matte Balms here, in Elusive, the pinky shade that everyone seems to be going crazy for. I know this sounds so cliched but never has a matte lip products felt so moisturising and creamy on the lips. It shouldn't work, but it so does. Will be purchasing more very soon so any recommendations are welcome!

Nars Creamy Concealer review...

Well, the clue is in the name with this one! This is so creamy but blends super easily it sinks into the skin/foundation effortlessly - I use the Real Techniques contour brush. It's very full coverage so perfect for scarring and blemishes, and under the eyes on most occasions. I do find that blended over full coverage foundations (Double Wear, I'm looking at you) I see that after a couple of hours wear this has creased under my eyes. Sign of getting old, I'm screaming at myself in the mirror!!

I'm in the shade Vanilla which is slightly lighter than my skin tone so really highlights my under eyes whilst not being too light to cover anything else on the face by blending in with whatever foundation I'm wearing.

 Comparing it to my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection, I'd say this is a less dry consistency which I prefer, and blends a little easier but when it comes to staying power there isn't much between them. 

In conclusion, I think this bad boy will forever be a part of my makeup bag.
