I was on a search a few weeks ago for a new eyeshadow base when I came across this at a counter in Boots suggested by the staff instead of the actual eye base that Estee Lauder do. I was happy with the shade match so I decided to go for it. The odd thing is I haven’t used concealer for the most part of 2014, it’s not bragging more like sheer laziness & wanting a more natural base. My foundations were giving enough coverage & it just seemed like an extra step I didn’t want to do.

Keeping that in mind I still went and bought it as a treat as I wanted to find out for myself. I already have compared this with my drugstore concealers in the post “Urban Camoflage Part 1 Concealer comparison” which showed it being just over 1/2 again as much more expensive per gram than Collection Lasting Perfection concealer. The Mac Select Cover Up is £15 per 10 ml and Collection is equivelent to £9.31 per 10 ml . I expected that gap to be much more than it was.

When I first got back into makeup I was in serious need of some makeup brushes. When looking through the basics set’s this one stood out as it offered everything I pretty much needed together. I picked them up from Boots & they still sell this set so I wanted to give you a bit more of an in-depth review of them all. Continue reading “Eco Tools Brush Set”
