I was SO flattered to receive these lipsticks in the mail! I have never received any products completely out of the blue like this before so I was really surprised and of course excited to try these. I wasn’t sure what to expect – I’m always a little hesitant when I receive a product for free. Mostly I’m thinking along the lines of ‘if they’re sending it to ME for free with no strings attached how good can it really be?!’ And that’s really just my own self-doubt kicking in, isn’t it? A lot of my favourite products are by Maybelline, but I have to say I’ve never been overly impressed by any drugstore lip products recently – enter the Maybelline Stay Matte Ink, Un-Nude style.

Best Concealers for Under-Eye Circles

As you may very well know from reading around here, I have chronic undereye circles thanks to my wonderful Mediterranean heritage! While I have lots of love for my Mediterranean roots, I have less love for their gift of undereye circles. Learning how to not look like I’m constantly sleep deprived was a struggle – eye creams seem to have a minimal affect, and colour correcting seems to fade away almost instantly. After years of playing around, I thought I would do a roundup of my favourite concealers! This one’s  for covering my undereye circles for the rest of my brothers and sisters who live their lives looking chronically fatigued (whether you are or not is an entire other thing)….
