Beauty on Trial #2





I put up a post like this fairly recently and it went down pretty well, so here I am writing another! I try a lot of makeup as it is but after last month being a bit of a slow one, I definitely have a fair few newbies to try in April. Here are three I'm currently road-testing!

NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer - You've probably heard everyone and their mother going on about this concealer. I was sent one a little while back but it was too dark for me to use. I spotted this at a beauty sale I attended and decided to just blindly buy this shade. It's still a little too dark for me, but I think I can make it work in the summer, as long as I use it solely to cover blemishes. The texture is creamy and blendable and it seems to have fantastic coverage. Will keep you posted!

KIKO Radiant Fusion Baked Powder - When my trusty Soap &a Glory One Heck of a Blot hit pan so hard it shattered, I put off buying a new powder. I'm lazy and also hate repurchasing "boring" makeup like face powder (I'm a brat, I know) so I picked this up on a whim and just kind of went with it. It doesn't seem to add too much coverage, which I'm definitely happy about and it's been doing a pretty good job as a setting powder. I'll continue to use it to give you a more precise review but so far, so good!

By Terry Glow-Expert Duo Stick - Another impulse buy because it was pretty and shimmery. Obviously I'm a strategic shopper. So this is marketed as a highlighter, bronzer and blush in one, inspired by contouring trends. I can tell you right now that I'll look like a crazy person if I try to contour with this. It's far too warm and extremely shimmery. I will, however, give it a chance as a bronzer. I think where it really shines (har har) is as a highlighter. This also has an inbuilt mini brush on the other end, making it a pretty good one for on-the-go application. The one thing that unsettles me about this is the very strong fragrance. As a sensitive-skinned gal, I'm wary of anything that is strongly perfumed. Here's to hoping this doesn't irritate the ol' face!



So there you have it, a few of the beauty bits I'm currently putting to the test. I'll update you as I go, as per usual and perhaps these will crop up in a favorites post at some point! Have you tried any of these products?

  1. Ooh the By Terry Glow Stick looks gorgeous, hopefully it doesn't irritate your skin! I haven't tried any of these products, something new to my makeup bag recently is the Whirl lipstick by MAC.

  3. I've wanted to try the NARS concealer out too since everyone loves it and raves about it. Does it work well as a blemish cover up? Thats probably what I would use it for as I find creams work better for my face than under my eyes

  4. That by terry stick is gorgeous! I like how it has a little brush on one end. Hopefully it doesn't irritate your skin since it looks so stunning <3 I've been hearing so many good things about the nars concealer but have had problems with all the other nars base products I've tried :( The coverage does sound impressive though!
