Lottie london- A brand that I was quite familiar with because of its fantastic affordable brushes and so it was all the more reason to be super excited for the release of its makeup line. There was so much hype with how affordable yet amazing the quality the makeup has been from various bloggers and so I just had to try something from the line.
I honestly didn’t know what to try first as there is a large list of products I want to try, but to get me started- I purchased the concealer. Lottie London’s got it covered concealer claims to:
I enjoy discovering a good drugstore concealer- because personally I use them the most.Concealers do exactly as its name suggest and thats covering those pesky dark circles and brightening the face! And looking less tired and more healthy – I guess that’s what every girl wants!
The packaging reminds me of the LA girl pro conceal because of the tube style packaging and Maybelline age rewind concealer because of the sponge tip applicator. I for one enjoy this type of applicator and have never had problems in regards to breakouts due to hygiene reasons but for some people this may be a problem. Nonetheless you could always apply some of the product onto the hand/palate and apply from this. I must also add that this style packaging does help control the amount of product dispensed as it is squeez-y tube and the product dispenses easily unlike some twist style concealers.
I picked up the shade sand from the limited colour selection they offer, but as it looked the most yellow on the site I purchased it. And thankfully was quite pleased with my choice. The shade sand is a very yellow based shade which I find really helps correct dark circles and brighten the under eye area. I do feel that the this shade is only about 1 shade lighter than my skin tone and so I do apply a more lighter concealer if I want a more highlighted under eye area. But on a day to day basis this is more than enough!
Now what’s really important is the actual product. How does it perform?
The concealer has a medium consistency- not too thick nor runny and feels very creamy. I find the coverage to be of a medium. On my dark under eye circles, I am able to build it to a strong medium coverage and that is only when applied on top of a corrector.. ( which I use with almost any concealer).
However for someone who has moderate to no dark circles, this will most definitely be quite opaque and full coverage for them. I do like how this concealer blends out effortlessly on the skin and sets to a satin matte finish. I do feel the need to set this concealer because of its creamy texture. Setting any concealer will always minimise creasing.
The concealer wore well for up to 7 hours after which I noticed some fading..
Overall for £4.95 this product contains a standard 8ml which is more than the amount some high-end concealers offer.And so I feel this concealer outperforms for its price tag as the quality of this product in regards to it’s blendability, color, price, and consistency is really good.And so I highly recommend it if your on a budget and looking for a decent very affordable drugstore concealer.
Thanks for reading, and do let me know in the comments what other products I should try from this line. I’m quite eager to try their foundations! Any suggestions?
Until next time, I’m signing off
