The Body Shop Insta-Blur Eye All-In-One Tinted Concealer+Primer Colour Intensifier Review And Swatches!

ISLM Writer: Nimisha


"Concealer is the secret of the universe"- Bobbi Brown

Well as true as it sounds, I actually agree to Bobbi on this one. So apt na!
Coming to today's product review, I am reviewing the Body Shop Insta Blur Eye All-in-one Tinted Concealer + Primer Colour Intensifier.


This tiny beauty claims to "work to conceal under eye dark circles, neutralise redness on the eyelid and enhance the vibrancy of eye shadow colour. The yellow tint works to neutralise the appearance of dark circles and redness on the eye lid and helps the eyes look less tired and more refreshed. Use under your eyeshadow to prolong its wear and enhance the colour vibrancy."


Retailing at Rs.1095 currently, this primer comes in a white tube packaging with nozzle to dispense the product.

As for the consistency, it is more of a mousse to powder finish formulation. I do love the sleek packaging but for the consistency of the primer which appears to be pretty dry, oh my, does it spread effortlessly.



This is definitely not a moisturising product and does nothing for hydrating the under eye area. This little marvel does contain Silica, thus, does a fine job of filling the fine lines around the eye area and prevents creasing.

When this description mentioned colour intensifier, it was immensely intrigued by the very mention since I wanted something that will make my eye shadow colours pop (not par se, but still I wanted something that will show up the true colour of eyeshadows on my lids). And well, it graciously pops eyeshadow that I apply; be it lights or darks.


Though the claim for covering under eye dark circles, is a big nah. It does absolutely nothing from them. So, hello concealers and correctors for those of us who have panda eyes. :P Since the primer has a yellow tint to it, it does not cancel any of the under-eye discolouration. Most of the Indian skin tones do not really have much redness around the eye area, and thus we need something more peach toned for cancelling the browns and blues and purples around our lids.


Positives
1) Love the travel friendly packaging.
2) The formulation is extremely soft mousse like and glides effortlessly.
3) Aids in imparting the true colours of the eyeshadows.

Negatives
1) Nothing for the cancelling of eye area discolouration.

Verdict: 
4/5 (-1 for the tinted concealer claim). But I would definitely be repurchasing this tiny doll considering the dearth of decent eye primer in the Indian market and the ones that are available are pretty pricey compared to this.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line? OMG was I #Adulting? Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
