Healthy skin has a radiance to it that sometimes gets hidden beneath foundation and concealer. Highlighter restores that luminous look with a subtle gleam that gives the skin a smooth, soft finish. A relatively new cosmetic invention, highlighter contains tiny flecks of pearly material that glow like healthy skin when the light strikes them. Although other shimmering creams and powders have been popular in the past, highlighters are not quite the same as older frosted products; they have a much subtler finish. The overall effect of highlighting the face should be one of dewy, smooth skin rather than a frosted or metallic shine.

Laval Tea Tree Concealer Stick - Review

Hello beauties!

Today I have something a little special for you - a review!
I have never done one of these before, well except those book reviews in primary school, so this is a little new! but I am so excited to be trying out this product and sharing my thoughts on it with all of you. I even have a few tips on how to get the best use out of it too! 

The product I'm reviewing today is the 'Laval Tea Tree Concealer Cover Stick.' I'm not going to lie to you, I LOVE it. Previously I've been hesitant to try different concealers, I always find them a little cakey, and they just don't seem to work well with my skin tone. This one however, works wonders for me. I have been using it everyday since it arrived.

Here's the write up on it..
