Today’s post is on a new concealer I’ve gotten. As a ginger, pale skinned person, I find that finding a concealer which actually highlights the skin tone (for under the eyes etc) a really hard prospect. However when I saw that there was a brand called Dainty Doll, designed for fair skinned people I snatched up the opportunity to try this concealer.
The brand itself doesn’t exist anymore I don’t believe but I found this on a beauty site for half price (they were having a stock clearance)
The packaging is super cute and I love the little ginger afro!
The concealer itself is in a click pen style applicator which makes for easy application.
Unfortunately this is where the good about this product stops. It took me a good few minutes of clicking to get any product to advance up into the brush and when it did it was a very oily constituency.
This is quite a lot of product applied to the back of my hand and it is still quite translucent. I got the shade 01 which was the lightest however I feel that it wasn’t that much lighter than my usual NC15 Mac pro longwear concealer.
Once I blended it out on my hand there was nothing left, I tried with a beauty blender and then with a brush but the same thing happened with both applications. The product got absorbed straight into the skin, leaving a greasy residue on the surface and providing no coverage.
So this product is a massive miss!!

P.s I’m still on the look out for a pale persons concealer so any suggestions would be amazing!
Todays post is a bit of a MOTD and a bit of a review. I’ve recently gotten the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Craft (which is just amazing!) and rediscovered an old eyeliner that I forgot I had brought a while ago now. This means i’ll be doing a mini review on the new products in todays MOTD.
This look was for a meal out with the family to celebrate my Grandads birthday 🙂
As I did such a bold lip I decided to pair it with a simple eye look (well simple for me) and this was the perfect chance to play with my new gel liner which is Artliner by Lancome. I had the miniture pot of this a while ago from my momma and must have brought a full sized one before moving into my flat, so as I was doing a bit of clearing through my cupboards this weekend I found a full sized, brand new sealed one! It comes in a pit and needs to be applied with an angled eyeliner brush. The formulation is very creamy and a lot nicer to use compared to some other ones I have used (for example the maybelline gel liner).

My hair was styled with the NuMe reverse curling wand, set for 10minutes then brushed out to create a smoother and more natural wave (then hairsprayed within an inch of its life!).
Hope you are all having a lovely weeked, I sure am as i’ve got a week off starting now. 🙂
