Touche Eclat Dupe?

The Touche eclat concealer has been raved about on literally every media platform there is. I for one caved in at the temptation and purchased it for myself. Truth be told, i fell in love with it instantly, however, the hefty price tag put me off wanting to repurchase. I have since been on the hunt for a great alternative. Both of these dupes i found look rather similar to the Touche eclat and both have a button-like pump and brush applicator as well as working the same way.

I first came across the Kelly Brook Illuminating concealer a while ago. The  packaging to me, seemed almost identical. Apart from the slight rose gold tint. Its also not as luxurious. As far as the product goes, It works in exactly the same way and the colour and formula appear to be an exact match. 

The Lumi magique, (a word i have no idea how to pronounce) I find has more coverage, However i wouldn't necessarily use it as a cover up. Its not as pink toned as the Kelly brook and touche eclat. I find this one a little more shimmery but looks just as flattering. The packaging looks a lot more expensive then the Kelly brook, but to be far its almost twice the price.

To conclude, Both these illuminating concealers can do just as good as the touche eclat, and if you are looking for a cheaper alternative i would recommend checking these ones out.

This Month I Have Been Loving- February Favorites

This month i haven't really been trying out anything new, however i have noticed that these products have been saviors for me and i have literally used them everyday since i have got them. I hope you love them as much as i do.

Rimmel nail polish in Caramel Cupcake:

Im really into my nude nail polishes at the moment and this one is just a all round pretty pale nude. It has a very slight bit of shimmer to it but is only really visible in the light. 

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip balm

I really love a good lip balm and for me this one ticks all the boxes. Its smells and tastes like peppermint wich i think is great for the daytime. It doesn't feel sticky and isn't too glossy so it looks lovely and natural. 

Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Cream

I tend to be rather lazy when it come to foot care, So I have been attempting to take better care o my footsies. This little foot cream is in a gel form which i have never experienced before. It smells like heaven and once applied, feels like it too. I will definitely be repurchasing this once it runs out. 

I seem to have developed a little bit of an addiction to Umberto Giannini products. This backcomb in a bottle works pretty much the same a a dry shampoo. However i find sometimes that dry shampoos leave my hair feeling a little dry and damaged. This spray leaves my hair shiny and full of bounce and volume.

This cute little compact from mac has become my makeup hero. I don't ever really take any other makeup out with me. It has a small transparent blotting powder and a sheen supreme lipstick. (in the shade Fashion City.) Its basically really handy and the packaging is adorable.

I'm rather a highlighter newbie and tend to steer away from anything too shimmery, However I thought it as about time i venture into the world of highlighters. I didn't want to splurge on anything to expensive so decided to buy this one from MUA. To be honest its pretty much a 5/5 if you are looking for a good highlighter. I love that its not over-overpoweringly glittery and has just the right amount of shimmer to achieve a gorgeous natural glow.     

So i hope you found this somewhat interesting.
