Boo Boo Cover Up Concealer Review:


Happy Friday Glamour babes! Another glorious weekend is coming upon us and so is another great review by yours truly of course ?. I don’t know if you know but I am a huge concealer queen. I prefer it over foundation. Depending on some of the concealer coverages it can cover quite well and I feel some can leave the skin looking flawless much like foundation. That being said, I decided to be a good concealer hoarder and use up every last tube and jar that I owned before I purchased a brand spanking new one. Let me tell you the task at hand that I put myself through was not easy for this makeup junkie, but it was well worth it in the end, lol. Boo-Boo Cover up is the heal while you conceal concealer and it can be found at Ricky’s, Amazon, Soap, Ipsy, and Birchbox.com for $20.00 a tube, or you can purchase the travel size version for $10.00. I have never heard of this concealer before and I was intrigued to try it because of the 5 beneficial key ingredients listed to aid in the healing process of the skin which is what I severely need right now due to my acne and scarring.

Here’s the Boo-Boo Cover Up Breakdown so you can better understand it folks. Have a Boo-Boo? Skip the bandage and the shiny ointment. Look your best even while you heal with Boo-Boo Cover-Up for the body (tattoo’s, acne, redness, scarring, and bruises). Our innovative formula offers great coverage for skin imperfections while containing ingredients known in nature to promote healing. Contains Aloe (helps burns, wounds, skin irritations, and acne), Chamomile (helps speed up the process of wounds, dry skin, swelling, acne, and rashes), Green Tea (repairs skin and is known to help bruising, acne, wrinkles and uneven skin tone), Tea Tree Oil (helps infections, wounds, insect bites, and acne) and Vitamin E (helps moisturize dry skin). It’s also fragrance free, so it’s good for all of you out there with sensitive skin. This concealer is sounding pretty good so far huh?!

There are three shades to choose from light, medium, and deep. I went with the medium shade since they claim it matches most skin tones. I am pretty fair and the light was too pale for me, this shade would be perfect for you porcelain beauties out there. So apparently there claim is set to be true, the creamy peachy beige formula was on the right money for my complexion.


The concealer itself is lightweight and creamy, not liquidy at all and sets into a matte finish once applied to the skin providing medium coverage.

 A little dab will seriously do ya since it is pretty concentrated and it does cover imperfections seamlessly on the face. I use this for my redness, acne, and scarring and the results are impeccable.

 To achieve a better blending effect I used my fingertip instead of a concealer brush and applied directly to the areas I wanted covered and feathered out the edges for a natural finish. Does it stay put throughout the day? Absolutely! I usually apply in the A.M. and when I return home early evening my face is still intact with no patchiness or streaking. As for the healing properties, this stuff does work, but it takes time. I have been using this for about two weeks now and I do notice a lot of the swelling from my acne breakouts dying down and my scarring has lightened up, not to mention the redness from the acne. One quick dab of my Boo-Boo cover up, a little bit of blending, and just like magic it’s gone! To achieve desired results whether you’re trying to cover a tattoo, bruise, or scars layer as much as you need to. Boo-Boo Cover Up doesn’t clog pores and is most certainly fragrance free, and is perfect for all skin types. Now who’s ready to kiss those boo boo’s goodbye?! Stay beautiful! Xo.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer Review:

Oh how I love the look and feel of weightless naked skin in the morning glamour babes and you will too when you try Urban Decay’s naked skin weightless complete coverage concealer ($28). This seamless concealer is available in eight (8) selective shades that matches any skin-tone and is infused with Litchiderm. A plant extract that is derived from lychee fruit—which protects against dehydration, while sodium hyaluronate helps the skin attract and retain moisture, resulting in a brighter-looking complexion. I was thrilled to see that Urban Decay finally created a weightless full coverage concealer that acts like a foundation minus all the extra added weight to my face. Once again I was intrigued by Urban Decay’s notions and into my shopping basket the concealer went. I swear their brand has some kind of gravitational pull towards me as soon as I walk into Sephora (Oy). The practical and travel-friendly concealer is housed in a gorgeous sleek cylinder tube much like it’s little sister version of their Naked Skin weightless liquid makeup.  

 The doe foot wand makes applications to the skin precise and easy giving you the perfect amount of product each time creating a mess free situation. Urban Decay’s concealer is oil free, ultra lightweight, creamy and provides full even coverage in an instant! I purchased the concealer in the shade light medium neutral and went application crazy. I applied it to my face, eyes, and to a few areas on my chest. I worked a little blending magic and boom! All of my imperfections that are not my cup of tea to see were completely hidden; dark circles, redness, scars, blemishes were no more. What was left behind was soft, luminous skin that looked and felt naked to the touch with a demi-matte finish. One thing Urban Decay was dead on about was how buildable their naked skin concealer can be. No lie, I must have put on about 2 to 3 layers of concealer and there was absolutely no creasing or bulid-up of the sort. My skin flaws were invisible to the human eye and to myself as well (holla!). The wear of Urban Decay’s concealer lasts fairly well, about six hours before a freshly new coat needed to be applied to my skin. The lovely hydrating peptides that Urban Decay enriched into their concealer was definitely noticeable. My skin felt super hydrated and retained it’s moisture throughout the day leaving me with a sunny, dazzling complexion I always wish to have, and that’s the naked truth. Stay beautiful! xo.

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Lite Blendable Concealer Duo Medium/Light Review:

Camouflaging your imperfections will no longer be a difficult task glamour babes thanks to Hard Candy’s Glamoflauge Lite blendable concealer duo available at Walmart for $6.00. This double ended concealer stick comes with two different shades for customizable color combinations, allowing you to achieve a perfect even complexion every time. I am so glad Hard Candy decided to come out with a lighter formulation of the Glamoflauge concealer. The Glamoflauge heavy duty was a bit too thick for my taste and really covers more like a foundation rather than a concealer and clogged my pores up a bit causing me to breakout some. It’s all good though, nothing face wash and a good acne cream couldn’t take care of. Using the Glamouflauge concealer duo is very easy to use. All you have to do is apply the corrector to any scars or blemishes, layer on the concealer shade, and blend. Wham, bam, thank you ma’am; after all is said and done your skin is seamlessly ravishing. 

 As always medium/light ended up being the perfect shade for my skin-tone and I think this is one great tool to have in your makeup bag or collection. The texture of the concealer is very light, smooth, and silky making it easy to blend  providing medium coverage with a matte finish. For a light concealer I was impressed how well my skin responded to the consistency and application. I applied this all over my face adding nothing else to the mix besides a highlighter to my cheeks and I was good to go. Everything looked erased; my scars, redness, blemishes, all gone! I could not believe my eyes. I was completely evened out and my skin stayed matte all day long producing no oiliness to my T-zone. Thus creating one fresh and fabulous complexion I long for on a daily basis. The Hard Candy Glamoflauge concealer duo comes in four shades; ultra light, medium light, and medium. I am surprised Hard Candy did not make a tan shade for deeper skin-tones as they did for their Glamoflauge Heavy Duty concealer line. Hopefully the company will realize this slight mishap and commence project bronze goddess; a tan concealer duo for all deeper complexions to try and love. And for that matter, there will be no more lurking in the dark with your imperfections my Hard Candyites, so  grab your fatigues and get glamoflauged, that’s an order! Stay beautiful, xo.

Physicians Formula Super BB all-in-1 Beauty Balm Stick Review:

IMG_3183
Perfect, conceal, smooth, brighten, moisturize, and protect your skin all-in-1 shot glamour babes with Physicians Formula Super BB beauty stick with SPF 30 ($11.99). Available in two shades, light and light/medium, I decided to purchase the light/medium shade. It’s not too dark, it’s not too light, this one is just right for my complexion. I am a huge fan of BB creams, they really do what they are suppose to do. Protect your skin while moisturizing, diffusing, and brightening, without the heavy feel of a foundation and create a flawless face in the process. This jumbo chubby stick has a twistable bottom and is super easy to use. Just glide, blend, and watch the transformation happen as it melts right into your skin.

IMG_3097
This BB stick has sheer to light coverage and is formulated with SPF 30. It’s a great touch up tool and can be used as a concealer to hide slight imperfections we all have and want to hide. This is not a foundation as it states on the package. Foundation provides medium to heavy coverage and works best if you have issues with moderate to severe acne, rosacea, age spots, and dark spots. Be sure that it’s oil-free and contains salicylic acid for those of you with flare-ups. Otherwise, bb cream is the way to go if you want to brighten your skin, hide some minor blemishes, tame redness, or smooth out your uneven skin tone. I would even recommend this for people with dry skin, I felt it to be really moisturizing and hydrating. I give this BB stick five stars. I love the lightweight consistency and how it absorbs nicely into my skin without the greasy feel some BB creams have given me in the past. I didn’t feel the need to give myself a quick touch-up with this tool, surprisingly. My skin looked great for an 8 hour work day (bright, flawless, and happy!) with no breakouts in sight. I only touched up my T-zone with some translucent powder and I was good to go! Physicians formula BB stick is hypoallergenic, paraben free, non-comedogenic, fragrance free, dermatologist approved and let’s not forget gluten free.
This jumbo BB stick is the multitasking tool of 2015. It acts as a concealer, touch up tool, and bb cream that glides onto your skin effortlessly, while blending easily. Creating a smooth and even application every-time, giving you the perfect flawless face with a natural finish. Stay beautiful! xo
