The Lipstick League Question of the Week
Quick! What’s your current favorite concealer?
G's answer: aside from some concealers that I'm testing out right now for a future review, the one concealer that I have been reaching for the most these days is unfortunately not from the drugstore and it's kind of pricey: Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Flawless Concealer ($25). Remember when Belk was having that $10 off $20 sale a while back? I really wish they'd run that sale again soon (you know I'll post the moment they do!). ANWYAY, I bought it then and now I'm hooked. I love it because it really does stay in place, even through heat + my oily skin. It doesn't get cakey underneath my eye area, it blends easily, and conceals quite well. And I REALLY love the doe-foot applicator. It's nothing unique, but it just picks up so much product from the tube (not too much, but a lot) and I LOVE that. I had been using the Sephora gel concealer and that applicator picks up the tiniest amount of product, to the point where I have to go back to the tube a zillion times while I'm doing my makeup. The Estee Lauder applicator picks up such a generous amount that I can apply enough to my eyes and the rest of my face using just what's on the applicator the first time I pull it from the tube. I don't have to go back for more, which means one tube is lasting me quite a while. I LOVE this stuff and will defintely repurchase the next time I can get a good deal on it.
