Hide & Chic

As freebies go sometimes they are not great quality but on some occasions they can introduce you to amazing new products.

I picked up my free 17 Cosmetics concealer (see how I got it free here) literally because it was free, I thought I may as well have it. I'm quite dubious about concealers as I do suffer from quite bad dark circles under my eyes and have a lot of redness in other areas. Before I found YSL's Touche Eclat I used a Clinique one and lots of other cheaper brands.

There were only two shades left in Boots, Light Rose or Light Beige. I decided to go for the Light Rose as I was told this is a good match for people with red undertones (like me!)

I tried the product this morning on the top of my MAC foundation, as I usually do and it took a few turns until the liquid began to cover the brush. The other thing I noticed is that there wasn't much product, it would run out very fast. I applied to one eye and had to twist again to do the other eye - which I don't normally do with my YSL.

Aside from these little flaws, which to be fair are acceptable at the low price of £4.99 I actually think I like it!! I expected to come home from Uni today, after having the product on for 5 hours, to look in the mirror and think oh my god what do I look like!! The total opposite happened, my under eyes look pretty good and I'm almost tempted to say they look better than when I use my YSL (did I actually just write that?!).

If you haven't picked up your freebie yet DO IT!
