Gosh, it seems like forever since I have blogged! Well, I have had my birthday since then and I also had a mad moment of deciding to decorate everything, so I’ve ripped down the wallpaper and am attempting to redo it all… A hard task I can tell you that!.
Today I am bringing you a review of the Skin Camouflage kit*; a kit that contains everything you need to conceal away any skin concerns from scars to tattoos. The kit consists of 4 concealers, a setting powder, mixing pot, 3 brushes and powder puff. Everything you need to create a flawless base.
I have some hyperpigmentation on the side of my face, a scar that runs from my lip to just below my nose, three scars on my forehead and a scar that goes from the start of my nose, through my eyebrow and onto my forehead. All of these I am pretty self-conscious of and I won’t even be seen going to the shop without make up on.
The Skin Camouflage Kit
The kit itself was really easy to use and mix up to make a shade that matched my skin. One of the things I loved is the fact the mixing pot was quite large so your mixture lasted you quite a while. It covered really well and flawlessly, it didn’t at all feel cakey or like my skin couldn’t breathe at any time. The setting powder was lovely and gave a lovely look to the skin as I can find that the concealers on their own can look a little ‘sheeny’ but this made the skin look almost skin like, plus helped them stay in place for hours.
One thing I hate is waste and obviously with a kit like this you don’t have use for all the colours. I decided I would have a play about with using the darker ones for a contour and making the lighter one a little lighter with the white for a brightening concealer. It worked a treat and I definitely felt like I got a lot more use out of the kit this way.
I did try to see how well it covered tattoos as it claims that it can, it covered them fairly well but I could still see traces of them underneath. I have read online though that colourful or dark ones may need a counter colour put on before adding the concealer over so this could be the case as to why I could still see mine as the ones I tried to cover were purple stars on my foot and a infinity sign of pink and purple butterflies with grey bubbles and Tapanga’s name on the inside of my arm.
Over all I think it’s a great kit, especially if you have skin concerns on your face.
