FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Bloom Secret Weapon Concealer Kit.

Oh my goodness, I almost forgot to rewrite about this. I actually wrote this two days ago in the car. The driver was out, and I was bored inside, so I decided to write. I must’ve pressed something to delete it, because I couldn’t find the draft anymore. FAIL. Well anyway, I’m on self-granted Sanity Leave from school, so yeah, I’ve got the time.

I’ve been meaning to get the Bloom Secret Weapon Concealer Kit in Medium/Dark for a little but less than a month, and I finally did so last Saturday. I was hoping to get it Beauty Bar at Gateway Mall, but I decided to get it a Robinsons Magnolia instead. I think this was Php545.00.

I’ll be honest, I can’t really give a good first impression about the concealer kit, since I’ve already stalked the product like crazy even before I bought it, and.. I’ve yet to use it because.. hmm.. because.. Well, I guess I’m simply not the type of girl who’d apply makeup for the sole sake of applying. That doesn’t mean that I won’t make a review though.:)

I like the packaging. I’m used to seeing concealer in tiny round pots, in tubes that look like those of lipgloss and lipstick, but this is somewhat different. The palette is somewhat like an ice cube tray. The card thing slides on and serves at its cover. The package is quite thin that it would definietly find its place in a cosmetic pouch.

The card thing that doubles as a lid has instructions at the back. The concealer kit houses 6 concealer shades. A guide telling us how to use the shades is quite helpful, especially if we’re dealing with green concealer. Frankly, I like it when makeup comes with instructions on how to use them. It makes things a whole lot more noob-friendly.:)

I get skin discolorations and redness quite frequently, and now that I’m more educated about concealer shades and their uses, I feel more confident that I’d be able to fix myself up a little bit better. They say that imperfection is beauty, but of course, there’s nothing more beautiful than a confident woman who knows how to work it in order to bring out the best in her in spite of said imperfection.

Yeah.~

My BEAUTY BAR Wishlist.

My birthday is about one month, three weeks, and four days away. This year, I’m going give myself a nice present. I’m treating myself to a Beauty Bar mini-haul, but being the frugal lady I am, I thought of coming up with a list of what I want, and contemplating about whether or not I should get then with the help of research in the form of reviews. Thankfully, Beauty Bar (www.beautybar.ph) has a WISHLIST feature that allows me to do such.

There’s a whole lot of eyeshadow palettes here. I was initially eyeing the Urban Decay Naked palettes. The only problem is that there are too many retailers out there selling fakes, and it really bums me out. Right now, I’m looking at Smashbox palettes, and I think they could make meas happy as an Urban Decay palette would.

I’ve read about the Bloom Secret Weapon Concealer Kit, and I’m about 85% sure about getting it. As for the eyeshadows, I’m leaning towards the Smashbox palettes, but I’m in no hurry to dismiss theBalm Shady Lady. Beauty Bar has all these amazing products, and what I really wanna do now is to pay the store a visit so I can try them out on my face!

I have more than a month to think about these things. I want to start my transition to “grown-up” makeup as well as I can, and of course, this involves choosing the best products that don’t break the bank. Goodness, I really hope I decide well.
