Maybelline Eraser Eye fans here in Ireland have been waiting way too long for these to launch!

The Maybelline Eraser Eye Neutralizer and Brightener Concealers are now available in Boots and Superdrug. I also spotted the Brightener one in Mc Cabes Pharmacy on my hunt for them too!

Maybelline Eraser Eye

It took me a long time to warm to the original. I realise now it was because the lightest colour wasn’t light enough for my skin tone.

The consistency and coverage is on point though! I also like the sponge tipped applicator, I know it’s not for everyone. These are not only meant to conceal. They’re also meant to treat the under eye area too and help with puffiness.

Both of these have been out in the States for literally years, I just didn’t think they were going to release them on these shores. But, low and behold they crept onto our Maybelline stands and I for one am very happy about it. If you follow me on Snapchat (shameless plug, I’m just Beautynook over there), you’ll know I went to three different Boots to source both of the colours! That is makeup dedication right there. Shout out to John for chauffeuring me around πŸ™‚

The first new shade on stands is a Neutralizer.

This as the name would suggest is for neutralizing any discolouration you might have under the eyes.

It has a yellow undertone to cancel darkness, but is also quite light to brighten things up too.

The second on is a Brightener.

This, like the Neutralizer is quite light in colour with more of a pink tone.

This is meant to conceal but also bring light to the undereye and by doing that make you look more awake.

I’ve actually been using both of these together, just because I have them though. I wouldn’t suggest you need both of them in your life. Like the normal Maybelline Eraser Eye, they have a really light consistency so you can build up the coverage without the product caking up under the eyes. The formula sets really quickly so you have to work fast as you blend. I’ve been using the Neutralizer first to counteract darkness. Then, adding the Brightener over top for some extra coverage and lightness.

The new Maybelline Eraser Eye shades are available in stores and online now. Here is the Boots website link to them if you want to have a look. I picked mine up in Boots for €13.79 a piece. I know Superdrug were doing a really good deal on them though if you are looking to sniff out a bargain πŸ™‚

Are you intrigued?

So as you can probably tell from the title, this weeks video is about the Sleek Colour Corrector Palette πŸ™‚

irish beauty blog beautynook

Yep, the one I am pointing to right there πŸ™‚

I was dubious about this little palette, I won’t lie. I received it in a very generous goody bag from Sleek along with lots of other amazing goodies. Including theΒ  Solstice Highlighting Palette that I have a review of here. And, the Cleopatra’s Kiss Highlighting Palette which I have a post on here. They got use straight away, the Sleek Colour Corrector Palette got forgotten about.

But, I was shopping my stash which I do regularly and I stumbled across it in the back of a drawer. And sure the rest is history πŸ™‚

You can see my first impressions and a demo of some of the shades on my face in the video above. Or, you can click here to watch it directly.

I show you it in action on my visage, and show how well makeup applies over it. As well as giving you my honest opinion throughout the video.

After (With Makeup Applied On Top Too)

Overall, it’s safe to say I am a fan of the Sleek Colour Corrector Palette! Not all the shades are for one specific person. They are for use on specific complexion issues. That is something to be wary about. I personally like the green and the yellow shade for my skin type.

You can buy it from Boots here, Cloud10Beauty here and Dolledup.ie here. I always like to give some Irish links where I can too. It’s always good to support your own πŸ™‚

Would it rock your boat? I know it’s definitely not a makeup necessity but, would it have a place in your makeup bag? I’d love to know your thoughts πŸ™‚

I gave first impressions on both of these products that were new to me together over on Snapchat (I’m ‘Beautynook’ over there) a couple of weeks ago and I’ve used them that way everyday since.

Budget Beauty Concealer

They are the Flormar Perfect Coverage Concealer and the Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer. Both of these concealers were under a fiver individually. I bought them both respectively to try but realised I really like using them together, so that’s why they are getting a joint review.

Now I know you’re thinking Gemma, why are using two products to conceal your lovely under circles? That’s a great question thanks for asking πŸ™‚ Let me show you.

When using the two of these for concealing I use the Flormar Perfect Coverage first.

I picked up the shade 01 Fair Ivory and it works well for my Mac NC20 skintone.

undereye correction

I like the applicator on this product too. It has like a paddle shaped doe-foot applicator, that works really easily under the eyes.

My under eyes without any concealer on (I do have foundation on though) looks a bit like this.

You can see I definitely have some blue tones under there as well some pigmentation.

I use the Flormar Perfect Coverage first because it has a salmon tone to it.

And then I blend it in using whatever synthetic brush I have to hand.

It’s really lightweight and easy to blend.

You can see the finished result here, it does it jobs well and conceals, without caking or looking too obvious.

Then, I pull out the Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer.Catrice Liquid Camouflage

I got this in the shade 010 Porcelain, it is a pretty light shade, this is good for under the eyes as you want to highlight that area just a touch.

Catrice Ireland

I pop a layer (or two) of this over top. It has a lightweight formula that blends easily into the skin, but still manages to do it’s job of concealing and brightening really well.

Under eye circles

You can see this has more of a skin coloured tone to it. And I do the same, just blend it down in a triangle motion and then up across the tops of my cheeks with a synthetic brush.

By all means you can just use the Flormar Perfect Coverage on it’s own or even the Catrice Liquid Camouflage and be good to go. Separately they conceal well and do not crease under my eyes, as well as not settling into any fine lines or making any dry patches more apparent. I think alot of the cheaper brands struggle with concealer, so to have found two really good ones at the same time is a revelation!

I like using both these products together because, the Flormar works great for the pigmentation and darkness and then the Catrice really brightens the under eye area. Together they make me look more awake…and alive :p

It’s really love at first swipe for me with these πŸ™‚ You can buy the Flormar Perfect Coverage from SimplyFoxy here or in any stockists around the country. The Catrice Liquid Camouflage is online here from Sam McCauley’s or again you can pick it up from stands nationwide including Penneys.
