Haul: KleanColor Nail Lacquers and Randoms

I am coming to fall in love with KleanColor polishes. They are super affordable and amazing quality! I've been buying them from a user on eBay called 27kitten, check them out if you need a fixing for these polishes like I do! They retail for $3.49 and she sells them for $1.75, albeit the shipping is $2.50 for 1 so I make it worth my while and get a handful. When I was in Vegas I got a manicure before coming back to L.A. and I fell in love with a polish and it was in impulse buy but I shelled out $7 for it. Crazy right! This was the first I had ever heard of the brand so I didn't know their value until I got home. I was distraught so I went out to seek more, I usually go to eBay when I want something cheap and fast so I was satisfied with all my purchases. In total I have 15 of these polishes now and I just discovered them a little over a month ago. But KleanColor is my new favorite brand for all the tie in factors. Look for a review in the near future!

Read on for the rest of the haul!

REVIEW: MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

So off the bat what I didn't like about this product is specifically the wonky color range. I'm normally an NC42-3 in MAC but for this concealer the NC43 was too dark. The next shade down is NC35, which is light but it oxidizes on me so it balances out. So this is the only case in which I won't mind it oxidizing. I can only use this concealer under my foundation, and when my skin is in good condition a.k.a no dry spots. I personally can't use this concealer under my eyes because I tend to be dry in that area. I actually really like the pigmentation but it doesn't work well on active blemishes, you would need to layer it and then it just gets cakey. One of the better aspects of this concealer is the price with the amount you get. You get half of a foundation basically and you do not need a lot of product to cover what you need.
