I love it when I come across a product that works really well that is pretty inexpensive. This one from Maybelline hit the nail on the head for me in terms of concealer! I definitely recommend you check it out as its my new favourite and I've repurchased it a few times now!
For years I used the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer that everyone loves and adores here in the blogosphere. Sadly for me I found it much too drying under my eyes and it creased pretty bad too. Its great for concealing spots and redness around the face but its just not the 'does it all' for me. Maybelline Fit Me, however, is a beautiful concealer. It has a smooth, creamy consistency which blends in to the skin wonderfully. Its not drying and best of all it doesn't emphasise and dry patches and it doesn't crease under my eyes. For such an inexpensive concealer it really gives some of my high ends favourites a run for their money. It just blends into the skin so seamlessly and even when you build it up for super-high coverage it still doesn't look cakey. Its my new everyday staple and I highly recommend you give it a go, it comes in a good range of shades too!

I love MAC pigments, but unfortunately they're not the cheapest product out there to buy. I was delighted to find out that they've taken out these mini sized pigments! they're so cute and whats even better is they only cost £10 instead of the regular price which is around £16.
I decided to pick up two shades in the sized to go tubes which are so adorable! They're glass with a matte black plastic lid which encases the product perfectly. I think the concept of having a mini size is so useful because I own some pigments in the full size and I really don't think I'll ever go through a whole pigment pot. I'll probably struggle to go through these mini sizes! Anyway, I picked up two pigments which I've had my eyes on for a while now: Rose and Blue Brown, both of which have a beautiful duo-chrome effect. Rose is a pretty pink colour with gold through it and blue brown is a chocolate brown which appears blue when it reflects light - so gorgeous! I need not mention how good the pigmentation or staying power of these is, after all they're MAC pigments - there are no faults in my opinion. I love applying these to the eyes with a wet brush as it minimises fall out and gives a much stronger colour pay off. Love!
