battle of the concealers

i have a thing for concealers–i own 10+. it seems like i’m always on a never ending mission to find the one product that allows both full coverage and brightens my skin. the tricky part is finding a product that isn’t thick and cakey. both concealers pictured are the same price, and are the lightest shades each brand offers. i did a side-by-side comparison to help visually explain the differences between the two:

impressions

right away, you can see that the younique’s side is brighter and looks more awake. the coverage looks like my skin, but better. my dark circles are camouflaged, and my skin looks refreshed! the texture of this formula isn’t sticky, or creasy, or cakey. it literally just melts into skin and blends to perfection. the coverage is build-able, too. if i’m having an extremely rough morning, i will apply the concealer as normal, but then i’ll go back in with a couple dots more underneath my eyes. the nars concealer is pretty good, but it doesn’t brighten or cover like the younique touch concealer. also, when trying to blend this concealer out, it tends to fade away and crease. not a good look! overall, younique’s touch concealer is full coverage, non-greasy, crease-less, blendable, and comes in 10 shades! i have seen before and after pictures of women using this concealer who suffer from melasma, acne, hyper-pigmentation, and more…and their skin is flawless after using this. i can’t rave about this concealer enough!

addiction shadow palette #1

younique’s addiction shadow palette number one

this shadow palette is perfect for the fall season that is quickly approaching! with a combination of matte and shimmer shades, you can create so many different looks with just one palette. in order for an eyeshadow to be “worth it” in my book, it must be long-wearing, pigmented and blend-able. these shadows pass the test!

thoughts

aren’t those results CRAZY??? younique’s 3D+ fiber mascara has literally changed the way i wear makeup. the transplanting gel contains antioxidants which are actually good for your lashes, and the fibers in the formula are made from green tea fibers, which are all natural. this formula is also water resistant, and let me assure you, it does not budge all day. no flaking, or smudging! removing it is easy, too. all you need is a makeup remover, and warm water. i have regular mascara’s that are way more difficult to get off than this!

comparison

the mascara’s in the coffee mug are what i’ve collected over the past few months–they total over $224.89. the other two mascara tubes are from younique–they total $29.00 together. i kept buying and trying new brands hoping to find one that will magically transform my lashes, and i kept striking out, until now. how much will you spend on the other guys trying to achieve the look younique can give you?

this new collab with younique isn’t about selling, personal gains, or profit. this is about me reviewing products that are good for your skin, that are cruelty free, and that actually do what they promise. i want to inspire followers of emmaline to dig deep, take steps outside of your comfort zone, and try something new. all of my opinions about this brand, even though i am an independent presenter, are real and honest. it is my hope that we will continue on this new leg of my journey together, and that you will tap into your curious side to discover how these products can benefit you and your happiness! here’s a bit about how this all fell into place…

•a few nights ago the most unexpected thing happened–I posted a blog pic to my IG & I received a direct message from someone I hadn’t met before. she was kind, upbeat, really energetic, had AMAZING lashes, and seemed like she could already be a friend of mine. we talked makeup, specifically @younique_corporate, and her passion for the brand was contagious–even over the Internet! since starting my blog venture, I have been introduced to new makeup lovers just like myself, I have been put back into contact with some pretty special people and I have been fully supported by others that I haven’t even met before! pretty surreal when you sit back and think about it. i love the way that makeup products can empower women and men, and I love the creativity behind all the looks, trends, and products. I have been wanting to expand my beauty efforts, and was just waiting for the “how” factor to dawn on me. and that prayer was answered the other night! I am SO STOKED to announce that I have joined the Younique family and will be collaborating through my blog, Emmaline and through my FB & IG account!!! my love for cosmetics goes way beyond skin deep–for me it’s about community, connections, empowerment, confidence and self appreciation! I am so happy that I can continue to drive the things that make this journey inspiring through being an independent younique consultant. thank you, nicole! •
