The salmony tones in the shade nude are great for undereye darkness.  The darker shades in the range are great as contour shades as well.  This concealer looks airbrushed anytime I use it for shoots. I absolutely cannot live without it and have backups of my backups in all the shades mentioned! #2 is Cle De Peau.

I really only use my Cle De Peau concealer stick for blemishes because it is just a bit to dry to use under my eyes.  It conceals blemishes sooooooo well and has been a staple in my makeup bag for years.

#3 is my Cover Girl concealer in the shade: 710 Light.  The reason why I chose this is for number three is because it reminds a lot of Cle De Peau, but without the hefty price tag.  I depotted my Cover Girl stick because it makes the product so much easier to work with when applied with my Laura Mercier secret camouflage concealer brush.

Tied for #4/#5 are Laura Mercier’s secret concealer in the color 2 and Stila’s concealer in the shade Honey 08.  They have similar very creamy textures and blend like a dream into the skin.  Both concealers are fantastic for dry skin and are super hydrating when used under the eyes.  Because their creamy textures are so similar, I give them a tie!  Please let me know if you guys have tried any of the above concealers and let me know what you think.  Also, please be sure to subscribe to my YouTube, so you can be in the loop for my next makeup giveaway!  I’ll be giving away some awesome Kat Von D makeup!  You won’t want to miss it! :)))))))  Have a great week everyone!!  XO ~Kelle

Holy Grail Wonder Serum!

Finally, I have found my holy grail wonder serum!  I mentioned this wonder serum in a recent blog and promised I would tell you all about it 🙂 A few weeks ago I picked up Kosé’s Clear Turn Eau de Claire Hyaluronic Acid Beauty Serum.  IMG_6247Kosé is a Japanese cosmetic brand that purchased Tarte Cosmetics in March of last year.  They offer a selection of four different Eau de Claire serums based on your skin’s needs: hyaluronic acid, collagen, vitamin c, & astaxanthin.  I went with the hyaluronic because it is winter time and it is supposed to help lock in and boost your skin’s moisture.  It is a thin, clear gel type serum without any greasiness what-so-ever.  I apply it after cleansing, and then apply my moisturizer.  I’ve been loving the combo together at night for the past few weeks.  IMG_6244My skin is feeling super quenched! Honestly, my skin has never felt more moisturized!  It is SO crazy waking up feeling like my skin doesn’t need any moisturizer!  I have a feeling this serum would make an awesome makeup primer as well.  The serum looks super dewy on the skin in a radiant & healthy way, not in a saturated-with-product kind of way.  Similar to the way aloe vera gel looks on the skin.  Also, this bottle of magic will last forever, as it is a 6.76 ounce bottle! I’m also really loving how the pretty Kosé bottle looks in the bathroom. Looking forward to trying more of their products!  Wishing everyone a beautiful week! XO ~Kelle
