Tuesday Takeover: Pyari Beauty

Tuesday 18 March 2014

Hello my lovelies!
Apologies for the lack of posts over the last 2 weeks, but if you've been following me on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter, you may have noticed I've been away to give birth to my beautiful son.. So I think that is a valid excuse for now!

Once again I've asked a fellow blogger to guest post and this week it's none other than blogger and friend Aaliyah of Pyari Beauty, who will be reviewing the MAC Pro Longwear concealer that we shopped together for as it's one of my most favourite concealers and kit staples.

Hello everyone! I’m Aaliyah from Pyari Beauty, when Safiyah asked me if I wanted to guest post on her blog of course I jumped at the chance. Today I will be reviewing the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. I first came across this concealer when Safiyah included it a few months ago in her concealer stash on Instagram. After hearing her positive thoughts on it I knew I had to get it. When in Westfield Stratford one day, I finally got matched and the shade I was matched to was NW20. I purchased it there and then and it's been love ever since. For those who love the ever popular Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, the Pro Longwear Concealer is the big sister of that except the Pro Longwear Concealer is oh so better. You get 5 ml of concealer in a sleek glass vial which comes with a pump. You only need the tiniest amount so you need to be careful when you dispense the product. The formula of this is creamy but it dries fairly quickly which can make it a little difficult to work with, so you need to make sure to blend it before it dries. I love using this for my under eyes and any blemishes, it's for sure one of those multi purpose concealers which can be used anywhere. To apply it underneath my eyes, I use my ring finger which is my preferred method, however you can use a Real Techniques Buffing Brush as well. When I apply this underneath my eyes, I do find it creases slightly but powdering over the concealer helps with this problem. Longevity wise this concealer is amazing. I don't find that I need to reapply my concealer after a few hours as I have experienced with other concealers. It's something that I can apply and not need to worry about whether it'll still be there at the end of the day. Overall I'm very happy with it and I have definitely found a new favourite. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a multi-purpose, long lasting full coverage concealer.

What's your favourite multi-purpose concealer?
