As my holiday came to a close I had to admit to myself that my beloved Maybelline Age Rewind concealer was also coming to the end of its life. So of course my brain is already whirring about what replacement product to buy... I mean, already owning about 10 spare concealers at home doesn't mean you shouldn't have another now does it?! So as I ambled along to Boots I was drawn in by the lure of having £30 worth of points on my Boots card to spend.

(Side note: If you live in the UK and you don't have a Boots card, I seriously question what you're doing with your life. It's entirely free and every time you spend money in store you get points which equal money which equals the ability to buy stupidly overpriced items we wouldn't consider getting if we were spending real money. You can get one online or in store so do it now!!)

I'd actually thought stupidly, that I had a plan: I was going to get the YSL Touche Eclat because my mum uses it and lets be real I've definitely borrowed (and loved) that baby. But typically I got distracted by the Chanel counter whilst my mother tried on different eyeliners. And after the lovely lady had tried this on me I decided 'what the hell' and made a cheeky purchase.


The packaging

It's Chanel: the packaging is beautiful end of! Like all their makeup: modern meets infinitely sublime and minimalist. It's beautiful, I don't even want to take it out of the shiny box! 

The Product 

If you're looking for a full coverage concealer then this isn't for you. I'd say it's probably lingering around the medium zone and it definitely hydrates and brightens. I believe the lady at the counter told me it has vitamin E in it, which is super good for maintaining your complexion. Colour wise, I do think they are limited though luckily one shade matched my skin almost perfectly. 


I would recommend this product: the style is stunning and the concealer has good lasting powers. However at £27 a tube I don't think I'll be repurchasing any time soon.

  3. Firstly, congrats on saving up £30 worth of points on your Boots card, I could never that. I either end up spending it on a meal deal when I get to £3 or on a a new high street mascara or something when I gets to about £5 or £6 ahaha - I really need to start trying a little more to save them and get some better! Maybe this concealer because it sounds lovely!
