Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica isn’t it crazy to realize how much stuff we all stockpile 😂 I’ve been doing an experiment to see how long I can go without having to buy a moisturizer .... it’s going to be January 2020 based on the most recent evaluation of my stash LOL

Re: Empties - 2019

Too much! Ha! That's mascara minis for me..and blush. Have you been taking notes on the moisturizers so you know what you like best @cianni?

Re: Empties - 2019

Hahaa you know it ✔️ They’re organized by time of day and season LOL (I know you’ll appreciate the organization of an excel spreadsheet😂) @ShortErica 

Re: Empties - 2019

That is AMAZING @cianni !!!

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks @RebeccaBT!

well you got a couple nice ones in there that worked out...

well you got a couple nice ones in there that worked out 😉 @ShortErica

Re: well you got a couple nice ones in there that worked out...

Yep, really none of them were bad @lmaster ..the boscia just didn't clean all my makeup to be worth it. I want a remover that removes it all! Is perfection too much to ask? 😂

Re: well you got a couple nice ones in there that worked out...

Heck no @ShortErica  I want to see those results!

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you for the tag, @ShortErica Smiley Happy

No problem @eshoe Smiley Wink

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica, sorry there wasn't a good color match for you with the NARS Radiant Cream Concealer; that's one I like a lot. NARS comes out with new shades from time to time so if you like the formula on this one, keep an eye out for future releases of additional shades. As for other concealer suggestions, you might want to look into TOO FACED - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealeror Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer, the latter is available directly from Tarte or at Ulta.

 

 

Re: Empties - 2019

Since it was the sample, there are other shades I could try @itsfi. But I wasn't wowed - though it would be hard to wow will only a couple uses in the sample. Thanks for your recommendations. I am lucky with pretty good skin but I think a concealer to cover a bit more of my redness when I use something light like BB/CC cream would be wonderful to have. I prefer a natural, maybe leaning more matte finish. Do you think one of the two you suggested would be more along those lines than the other?

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica, all three (NARS, Too Faced and Tarte) have a natural finish; as I think about it, I don't know which would be the more matte of the 3. Smiley Sad  Too Faced is full coverage; NARS is medium to full coverage and the Tarte is in between. I wear concealer most days to cover some redness around my nose and acne scars along my jawline and it's sometimes the only base makeup I wear on weekends. I'll try to remember to pull all 3 out tonight to see which of them leans matte.

Re: Empties - 2019

That's good to know @itsfi. I'll look forward to hearing what you think. I'm pretty sure all 3 looked to have a decent shade range but I wonder if one will match my skin better than the others. I guess I have a good excuse to get some samples! Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica, I wouldn't say these 3 are matte in coverage but of the 3, I'd say the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is the more matte (but I wouldn't say it's matte), followed by the Tarte and then the Too Faced. I also thought of another concealer you might be interested in, particularly if you are looking for something that leans matte - NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer

Re: Empties - 2019

This is why makeup is wonderful and frustrating- too many choices! Thanks for checking those out and the additional recommendation @itsfi 

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi did you find the tarte too drying on your dry skin? I primarily use concealer under eye, so it’s a bit different, but I found the tarte was so drying to that area where the too faced was much less so. Does the same apply to covering spots? 

@ShortErica 

Re: Empties - 2019

@missjeanie, I agree that of those 3 concealers, the TF is the more hydrating for under the eyes. For under eye concealer, I like to dab an oil in that area, let it absorb a bit into the skin and then apply concealer; it hydrates that area a bit more so product is less drying.  I also like TATCHA - The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatmentfor under the eyes.

 

In terms of covering spots, I find the Too Faced to be both fuller in coverage and creamier / more hydrating in consistency. The Tarte is next for coverage, followed by the NARS. The areas where I need to cover spots tends to be the oilier parts of my face - along my jawline, so if it's a little drying it doesn't bother me too much. But for the dry parts, under eyes, I layer an oil (or a serum) underneath the concealer.

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfigood tip with an oil under the concealer undereye.  I find for covering spots the NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer has better staying power for me.  Have you tried it?  It has been a hot minute since I've given the NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer a test run though.  Maybe I should give it another shot, it's so popular for a reason right? @ShortErica 

Re: Empties - 2019

@missjeanie, I have tried the NARS Soft Matte Concealer and like it. It gets more use when I have more time in the mornings. I reach for concealers with a wand a lot because they’re convenient; I can dot it on and quickly pat to blend while I’m waiting for my car to warm up 😆 or I can use it quickly once I get to work if I need to.
