NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

A good concealer is hard to come by, especially when you have a lot of things to cover up. From dark circles to zits to acne scars to mild redness, I have a lot that I don’t want the world to see. However, my skin can get kind of dry in the winter, so I need a concealer that is thick but not drying as so many thick concealers can be. Recently, I picked up a small size of the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in “Vanilla.” This small size is $13, but the full-size is $30. This product is available at Sephora and similar retailers.

I love the level of coverage that this product provides. Its a medium-coverage that can definitely be built up to a full coverage. It also seems to last all day whether or not I put a finishing powder atop it. The light texture makes it just perfect to all of my imperfections. I often find that a good undereye concealer won’t hold up against a nasty zit, but this one can cover it all. I’m super impressed, and I’ll definitely be buying the full-size when this one is used up! 

Have you used this product or do you have a different favorite concealer? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay Travel Candle

I am for sure going through a candle phase. Every night, I relax in my apartment with a different candle. I’m really big on florals and some fruit scents, so I was very excited to try the Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Travel Candle. This can be purchased at Sephora for $35. 

I’ve been reaching for this one over and over again. It’s a great spa-night scent. Overall, the scent is actually quite subtle and fresh with notes of blackberry, bay leaves, and cedarwood. It seems to burn pretty clean, and the wax has been melting at a really steady and even rate. It claims to burn for 18 hours (it’s 2.1 ounces) and this seems about right when I look at how much wax is left versus how long I’ve burned it. 

I will say that, as much as I’m loving this candle, I’m just not sure that it’s worth the price. For $5 I could get a bigger Glade candle. For about half the price of this one, I could get an enormous candle from Bath & Body Works. While I do like this scent, I really feel like there are better, stronger scents out there that are available at a much lower price. Yes, I’ve enjoyed the luxury of owning this one and a Diptique candle (review forthcoming), but I’m not sure they are really worth the price. 

Thanks for reading!
