Since I splurged on the Jane Iredale Glamour Eye & Lip palette, I’ve been playing non-stop with it and subsequently neglected the rest of my eye makeup products.
What a shame, since I left aside such a lovely product : Vapour Mesmerize Eye Shimmer in “sugar” As you can see, this is a sort of a champagne pink shimmery color. Correct me if I’m wrong, but quite reminiscent of “dust” or “burnout” in the Naked 3 palette ( I’ve never tried any of these palettes, but I saw the pictures 😉
It’s a versatile product. First you have to warm it in circular motion on the back of your hand to ease the application. It can be worn alone. That’s what I do, I put it all over my lid and it gives a soft, but luminous look. However, it also works as a coat, base for powdered mineral eyeshadow.
Now on to the Jane Iredale Zap & Hide Blemish Concealer. This is the first concealer I ever bought : I just loved the idea of having a 2-in-1 product i.e. a spot treatment + a concealer !
The packaging isn’t too bad either : I love the fact that it’s a stick.
It works great for dark circles, but I can’t quite compare it to my RMS Beauty concealer, since it’s a bit dry and works less subtly on the skin. But it’s still a nice and convenient item to keep in your bag just in case.
Unfortunately, I was less impressed by the “Zap” part, which is supposed to treat the zit. I did not see any improvements, but it could be because tea tree oil doesn’t seem to work well on my skin; I have tried different tea tree oil products, but to no avail.
According to the company’s website, there is a newly improved version, so I’d love to hear your opinion if you have tried it.
Have you tried any of these products? Have you rediscovered any old products?
