The New Way to Clean Beauty Blenders: Tested!

I had seen numerous tweets on cleaning a beauty blender this certain way and all the results had me impressed every time.
As I'm really bad with cleaning my makeup tools often, I decided to give this new way of cleaning my beauty blender a go. As you can see, it's incredibly dirty which made me even more eager to try this out and see if and how it works.

So, I simply put my beauty blender in a jug of cool tap water and added a tiny bit of Johnsons baby shampoo which is what I use to clean my makeup brushes too. If you don't have baby shampoo handy, fairy liquid works just fine for this too!

Then, I popped the jug in the microwave for 1 minute. Once 1 minute was up, I squeezed out the unwanted product from the beauty blender and rinsed it under the tap.
Repeat the process if it's still dirty. I had to repeat two more times to get mine clean.

The final result!
As you can see, I couldn't get it fully clean, but this way of cleaning beauty blenders is excellent! It's quick and easy to do. I really shouldn't leave my beauty blender for that long awaited clean next time.

Have you heard about this cleaning technique?

The Concealer That Has Lasted Me (Pretty Much) Forever!

revlon colorstay concealer review

best concealers 2017

Obviously, the word 'forever' in the title of this post is extremely over exaggerated. Although, how amazing would it be if you could keep hold of a product forever without it running out? However, I have owned this concealer for quite a few months now. Every time I've bought this, it always lasts me ages. There's nothing different or exciting about it, it's just the usual concealer in a tube. Maybe the applicator doesn't soak up as much product as other concealers do... I don't know.

I originally bought the Revlon Colorstay concealer some time last year when I was loving the Revlon Colorstay foundation. What I love about this concealer is that it's the perfect light colour for pale skin. It doesn't have that 'orange' undertone like other light concealers do. It blends out really easily and smoothly. It does seem to settle in fine lines under the eye but after patting over with a damp beauty blender and setting with powder straight after, it's soon sorted. The clue is also in the name, the concealer stays in place for a good six hours. Sometimes you'll need to go over a stubborn spot once or twice throughout the day but overall it's great!

Have you tried this concealer?
