Happy Tuesday everyone! Many of you will be off work in a few days. As for me, I just came home from my second pixel session and my face hurts :( So I will be hiding out in my house for a few days because I look really scary right now.
Anyway, I'm off to review Dollface Cosmetics' 15-pc Concealer Palette

When I went to makeup school, I started stocking up on things that I didn't have. One of those things that I didn't have was multiple colors of concealer. Good thing that a few days before that, Dollface Cosmetics was having a bazaar. I didn't think twice about going.
At first, I was torn between this and the 10-pc concealer, but I eventually decided to get this, because it had more shades and costed less, although the 10-pc concealer had bigger pans.
One thing to note, the colors in the pan are not completely warm-they're a tiny bit cool-toned. Which is actually good for covering up dark circles and discolorations in the face, since salmon-colored concealers are better than for dark spots than warm concealers. Don't worry, though, because the coolness is very slight so you can still use this for blemishes, and it does a good job at it. If you want to make the concealer even warmer, you can always mix in some yellow concealer that's part of the palette. Lasting power is decent, maybe 3-5 hours in our humid weather.
Note: I'm not really sure why they included a silver shimmery color, but I can find other uses for it so that's fine, but I'd rather that they replaced that shade with orange instead.
So here are the pros and cons:
- many colors in the palette for an affordable price
- it comes with color correctors in green and purple
- offers medium coverage
- this palette can also be used for contouring
- cakes if too much is applied
- can settle into fine lines
- in our humid weather, it can still get streaky even after set with loose powder, but this can be easily remedied by brushing through it once again to smoothen it out
- I wish it came with an orange color corrector
- always set this with loose powder after
- apply little by little to avoid caking :)
The verdict: This is a great palette for those who are in makeup school and for the beginning make-up artist, but I plan to upgrade after this palette :)
