This will be my first post and I am super excited about it!! Hope you guys enjoy reading this!!!
A few days back,I was just wandering around the mall with nothing in mind, I love just walking around, looking at and exploring things that pass by. I did a lot of this, in my college days when I had a tiny pocket, and a huge heart to buy everything I liked!!! Today, is years later, to this time.I had spent hours walking searching something that I didn’t have in mind, and then finally, The Body Shop Concelar caught my eye!!! I had actually stopped at The Body Shop, to pick some lip balms, when the SA showed me this concelar saying it goes perfect with skin tone and that’s how it occurred to me, “let’s try dipping into the pond!!!!” I was reluctant at first to drop this in my shopping bag but It was hours since I hadnt picked anything so I thought why not give it a try!!!
The Body Shop concelar was something that turned out to be, ” can’t be without it”!!! And I love it!!! I always wanted a concelar that wouldn’t make me look, Another me with layers on!!!! This fared far better than the others.This little wonder comes in a pencil packaging, the tip was quite firm and the texture turned out to be beautifully creamy, not greasy. The shades are numbered from 1 to 6( though initially only 4 shades were launched). The ingredients mentioned were marula oil, which has moisturizing properties, bees wax, which mentains the product texture overtime and is a well known skin conditioner and Vitamin E.
I am NC 35-37, with a combination skin (my under eyes are not oily). The thumb rule for buying the concelar shade is a shade next to your foundation.if you have really dark panda eyes u can go two shades forward to your foundation. I have this shade,05, which is perfect perfect match for me. Here are the before and after swatches.I don’t have deep dark hollow bags, except for a few exceptional days,I do have them, oweing to stress and sleepless nights. This shade has slight yellow undertones and one or two full swipes of this creamy pencil are good to me.its not at all greasy. I feel the warmth of fingers are perfect to blend this perfectly And…voila!!!it settles in deeply giving a smooth finish and looks like a second skin!!! I have used this many times and trust me I need a very tiny amount, till now I haven’t been on the need to sharpen this. And still I have enough product with me!!! The texture is beautifully creamy but not on the edgy side that it would start melting in my vanity.even at 40 degrees here in Delhi, it’s perfect and sound!! It hides not only my dark circles, but also uneven skin tones around the nose and chin area. I also have slight discoloration on the cheeks, and it fairs well over that too!!! Most of the times I just wear this concelar on the areas that need it ,top it over with a powder and ready to roll!!! All in all, its an HG find for me and my quest for a dream come true concelar ends here!!!
