Makeup for less–Maybelline and L’Oreal concealers and highlighters

Maybelline New York Eraser Eye ConcealerOn a trip to New York last year I picked up Maybelline’s New York Anti Age Eraser Eye Concealer.  They were all raving about it and I can see why, you’re going to want one (or several) of these as well.  The price, at around £8 (or currently 3 for 2 at Boots), is, for the quality of product you’re getting, quite exceptional and you may decide to replace your expensive concealers with this one.

I have medium toned skin and use the Light version which gives an instant uplift without looking unnatural.  The sponge application can be a little tricky to use as a finisher because you can twist too far and get a little too much product and I usually end up finishing off with a brush or my finger, but the overall effect isL'oreal Lumi Highlighting Concealer seriously good.  You can keep one of these in your handbag, travel bag and bathroom without any guilt about yet more designer concealers……

Find Maybelline’s New York Anti Age Eraser Eye Concealer at Feel Unique and Boots

L’Oreal Lumi Highlighting Concealer is for those who want to brighten up the eye area or can be used as a highlighter for brow or cheek area.  This is not an anti-aging product like the Maybelline, and not as specific, but for a quick touch-up and brightener on the go it’s excellent as a multi-use makeup essential.

You’ll find L’Oreal’s Magique highlighting concealer at Boots, again currently on 3 for 2.
