Beauty Bits: Skin Coverage

Catrice Prime and Fine Anti-Red Base
A good coverage for blemishes and dry skin is more difficult to find than for oily skin. Every time I am in a drugstore or when I am watching new commercial, makeup products are usually meant for oily skin. I picked up Catrice Prime and Fine makeup base because it supposed to be one of the rare hydrating products. Green colour itself says to be better with covering up any redness and blemishes and I immediately picked the product up when next I saw that it is hydrating too. When I am applying it, I do it before my foundation. If you want to cover redness completely you will have to put on a few layers. I can say it is hydrating but for my skin type some face creme before applying a base wouldn't be a bad idea. Otherwise it feels nice on my skin and not heavy at all. It isn't exactly the best primer out there but I will keep using it (in case something changes) and then move on to continue my search. 

essence Stay-All-Day 16h Longlasting Concealer
I don't know about 'stay-all-day' but this essence longlasting concealer lasts long enough for me to spend an entire afternoon (or morning) out. I like the coverage and light consistency. With a shade lighter than my natural skin tone, it actually gives me best coverage so far. I use it on my blemishes and under my eyes. I use two layers of this concealer whenever I want to hide my under eye bags completely. This concealer I will certainly repurchase. 

ebelin Concealer Sponge
It comes in a set of two and I kept one to myself and the other one I gave to my sister. I use it with the concealer mentioned above and I use it on a dry sponge actually. I find it good for blending in the concealer under my eyes and around my nose. I would repurchase this concealer sponge again and next I might even purchase a regular beauty blender from the same brand. 
Which primer and concealer is your holy grail?

  1. Super, I love the sponge, I need to get one :) xx

  2. I've tried this concealer, it's really good. But then I moved to Essence All about matt! high coverage concealer. So far, it gave me the best result. Highly recommend! I still have to try Eveline liquid concealer. Something tells me that it's going to be a good one too! :)
