So we meet again. I had ordered a few items from an On Line store referred to me by the Essence Pakistan Social Media Team, and of course I had to give it a try. The store is BeautyBar.pk, and though they do not have a very wide range of products in terms of brands, they carry a great variety of the entire Essence Brand. But what lured me most were the Pro- Conceal line of Liquid Concealers, from LA girls Cosmetics, which they claimed to have in 12 shades. Also I wanted to try the LA Girl Cosmetics dupe for the Too Face Melted called Glazed Lip Paint.
Unfortunately, the most viable of all the concealer shades were sold out, which dampened my enthusiasm to such an extent that I bought a very few things. I am a big fan of cream contouring, unlike most people, and find it much more natural & powerful than powders loaded on to the face. Anyway, here is what I ended up ordering.
I shall just list down the products with the name and prices. Considering that the store is based in Lahore, I found them to be super inefficient, in terms of the delivery time, as I have received orders from Karachi in fewer days, than I did from them! Coming to the products:
- Essence Cosmetics all-in-one CC Cream, Clear & Correct in Fair – PKR 650/-
- LA Girl Cosmetics Glazed Lip Paint in Blushing- PKR 500/-
- LA Girl HD Pro Conceal in Warm Honey- PKR 450/- ( I chose this as a color corrector for my dark circles & this has been a life changer!!!!!)
- Flormar Perfect Coverage Concealer in 04 – PRR 450/-
That is it. Short and sweet. But so far, I am enjoying using the concealer as an color corrector. The lip paint is nothing exciting, but the CC cream definitely is a good buy. The concealer, I have not yet tried. So, these are my first impressions of the products & also of Beautybar as an online store! Have any of you been lucky enough to lay hands on the HD concealers? If so from which site? Please do let me know, if they are available elsewhere:)
Take great care & stay blessed!
