Haul: The Body Shop Concealer and Lightening Touch

I've been coveting Touche Eclat of YSL after it was featured at the Beautynomics. Then I saw the Swiper got something quite similar from The Body Shop (TBS), the Lightening Touch. So, when I read from the Beauty Bento Box that TBS is having a sale, I jumped on the oppurtunity. Before hitting the books (bleh!), I hit the mall first.


my small haul. shhh.. don't tell anyone.


Lightening Touch in 03

The TBS says: We call it Lightening Touch, you'll call it wow. This magic little wand gives light relief to dark circles and fine lines and instantly brightens the skin. Contains ingenious little light-diffusing particles minimize fine lines and dark shadows.

Shen says: Initial impression, I am liking it. Its easy to be blend and with all the late nights i've been keeping, this product minimized the bagginess under my eyes. The applicator is easy o use although I worry that I this will not last me a long time. Will still have to do an intensive review on this, especially on the application.



Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer in 02

TBS says: A stylish cream-to-powder concealer enriched with baobab oil, naturally rich in vitamins and moisturising agents to care for your skin and zinc oxide to help combat impurities. The product features a sophisticated delivery system with clear active essence suspended in a special core structure.

Baobab Oil - From the 'tree of life' with high levels of vitamins and natural moisturisers. Encourages the regeneration of skin cells, helps improves elasticity and prevents drying, for youthful-looking radiant skin.

Vitamins A, E and F - Including essential fatty acids naturally present in Baobab and Marula Oil.Helps to improve, condition and maintain

Encapsulated Vitamin C - A unique volatile silicone gel network which delivers a large dose of vitamin C to the skin. Vitamin C helps to promote the growth of collagen.

Shen says: I've been looking to buy a good concealer since my blemishes are so out there. I ran out my HG concealer so i opted to get this since a lot of my friends swear by the TBS concealer pencil. But I got this Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer instead since I don't like to sharpen anything at all. So far, so good. I'm liking it since it pretty much covers my blemishes and I like the part that it is not only a concealer but has healing properties as well with all its added ingredients. Let's see if it does what it promise within the next few weeks. :)

So, what's your HG concealer and highlightening product?

much love,

Hi Shen
Great to read this. The YSL Eclat Touch - oh so coveted :)
Dont think TBS has this here in India!
I use the Studio Fix Concealer with SPF from MAC. Just trying the pencil one from Shiseido too. Quite like both, but since i have not been a concealer person for long, i need to give it a while.
