Anyone up for a game of hide and seek? Granted, it's not the type you might be thinking... This one features concealer (the hide) and a pretty gorgeous set of false lashes (the seek) both new to the Make Up For Ever family of products. So, are you in? Read on!

Make Up For Ever has been introducing new Ultra HD formulas, so you kind of knew it was only a matter of time before a concealer joined the range. The Ultra HD Invisible Cover Concealer is here, but is a little bit different than your average concealer launch, as the shades in the range are divided into colour correctors and concealers. It should also be noted that there are a lot less shade options than we've come to expect from the brand as well, with only five in each category.

I opted to try a colour correcting shade, and chose R20 for light skin. Let's just say it looks extremely light. I didn't think it would work on me, but it does, when used sparingly. It's definitely brightening, and works to neutralize dark circles with it's peachy undertone. The formula is also designed to combat those little beasts (dark circles, that is) with an "Anti-Dark Circle Complex with Radiance Booster" that supports collagen to give eyes an awake and refreshed appearance.

I've found you only need a tiny amount of this concealer/corrector to cover the under eye area, but you can build it up if you're circles are super stubborn. The formula is on the thinner side and blends into skin incredibly well and looks like skin. I like to set it with translucent powder, but it does wear well on it's own.

As for the seek, check out these Lash Show Instant Drama False Lashes! The new line up of lashes has pretty much every type of lash one could want, with three styles- natural, artistic, and winged. The lashes I've been wearing are from the natural offerings, but do have quite a lot of pow.

The N-103 lashes are tapered, with more length at the outer edge for a fluttery look. The effect has some drama, but still retains a hint of the natural look. I say hint, because really, who has lashes this incredible? The lashes are light feeling, and have a really soft feel. I love that once applied, you can't really feel them. The lashes come with glue (0.03 oz) that is latex-free, long-lasting, and safe for sensitive eyes. I usually have a bit of a struggle applying false lashes, but these went on on the first try! I don't know if it was the glue or the lashes, but I'm certainly not complaining. I did find one of my lashes came a bit wavy compared to the other and as such doesn't lay quite as flat as the other. It's a small thing, but at this price point, I'd prefer to have matching lashes.

Overall, two great additions to the Make Up For Ever family! I do suggest testing your concealer shade in store though, as the corrector and concealer element changes things a bit. What do you think? Are you interested in either of these products?
