100 Layers of Makeup

Recently on my YouTube channel, I did the 100 layers of makeup challenge. I did 100 layers of foundation, 100 layers on liquid lipstick and 100 layers of filling in my eyebrows. It took so long to do so many layers of makeup but I did it in the end and it actually was kind of fun. In case you haven't seen the video yet, then here it is:
I hope you enjoy the video. If you do, it would mean a lot if you would subscribe to my channel for free to hear when I put out new videos. I hope you are all having a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer Review

If you been reading my blog for a while then you will probably know by now that I've been on the hunt for the "ultimate" concealer for a while. I found some pretty great ones but I've still kept looking for the least expensive, best quality concealer. Today, I am reviewing the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer in the colour light. This is a concealer that I wanted for quite a while before I actually got it. I got it in Boots for €13.50. I feel like it's a pretty mid-range concealer in terms of its price. It's not as cheap as something like the Collection concealer but it's not as expensive as something like the Bobbi Brown one. 
One thing I love about this concealer is that you get an entire package for your money, not just a tube of concealer. It comes in a hard circular case which not only holds the concealer, but powder to set it with and a small mirror to look in when you are fixing your makeup. You also get two different shades of concealer, a yellow toned one, and a pink toned one. I love the packaging in terms of its design and it is so handy when you are on the go. It's the perfect concealer for travelling. 
Now onto the actual concealer and its quality. The concealer is quite thick so it does have quite a bit of coverage, I'd say at least medium coverage if not high. Not only are they thick but they are quite creamy so they are easy to blend in, and you don't need to worry about rushing to blend them in before  they dry out. I am kind of obsessed with the yellow toned shade, it's probably the main reason why I like this set so much. I don't really use the pink shade that much because I think it is supposed to be used under your eyes, and I prefer to use the yellow shade for that. One of the only downsides of these concealers is that they aren't very close to my skin tone and sometimes need to be sorta mixed with foundation to look right on my face. I've found that it lasts quite well on my skin (Normal/combination) although I've heard that it fades quite quickly on oily skin so If you have oily skin this might not be the concealer for you. 
Here are some swatches of the products:
Overall, I really like this concealer, mostly for covering my dark circles above anything else. They are good coverage, and they come with a mirror and a powder to set them. I love the packaging and it is so easy to travel with. It could be cheaper but I feel like you do get quite a lot for the price. This is one of the better concealers that I've used and I would definitely recommend it. Have you ever tried this concealer? Let me know in the comments below.
