Makeup Products of February

Some new makeup products I've tried so far this month include Cover Fx Camouflage Concealer, Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer, and Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara.

Now for the reviews...

The Cover Fx concealer was not so great. I got samples of it and all the colors I swatched on my skin were orange. Even the lightest one had an orange tint to it so I came to the conclusion it was not worth the purchase. I don't know if the samples given to me were tainted or old but I was not impressed at all. This product retails for about $27 at Sephora.

Kat Von D Tattoo concealer wasn't bad! It however did not cover my four leaf clover tattoo on my wrist. I put a few layers of it on, even with a primer to prep my skin, and you could still see the tattoo. For claiming to have the power to cover tattoos I was thoroughly disappointed. I was not impressed whatsoever with what this concealer claimed to do, however, it did cover the scars on my face really well! For other purposes other than covering tattoos I would re-buy this product. This product retails for about $25 at Sephora.

The Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara was okay. Not the best mascara I've used but also not the worst. My eye lashes are naturally long so any product that is too watery makes my lashes look thin and wispy and tends to weigh them down. This mascara was really thin and I found I had to put 2-3 applications for it to cover all my lashes and do what it claims to do. I currently use this on top of my Dior Show mascara for that EXTRA oomph! This product retails for about $24 at Sephora.
