Drugstore Concealer for the Win

So here is the deal, I very rarely talk about concealers. As a matter of fact, I think the Glossier Stretch Concealer was the only one I have ever written about so far on the blog, and have only actually loved for all the years I’ve been playing with makeup. I’ve been blessed with fairly good skin, so most foundations can cover the imperfections I have going on, and generally, I’m perfectly fine with some redness or pimples showing through. So I only really turn…

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water & Hydrating Cleansing Oil Review

Benjabelle Cleansing Balm Review

I’ve been a diehard beauty blender solid cleanser fan for as long as I can remember, but the amount of product you get for the price is not great, to say the least.

So I started the hunt for an ultimate dupe, a one that works equally well…
