During my most recent trip to Boots, I can’t help but have my eye on the new Bourjois Imperfection Concealer ($15). With a cute leopard print packaging and a built-in mirror on the cap for easy touch-ups, how can you not?! But other than the cute packaging, this concealer is a very average product.

Yes the “melt-on-the-skin formula” gives it a creamy, blendable texture but the coverage is far from enough to eradicate my undereye circles. The color selection also sucked. There are only two shades available – a pink-based beige and a golden-based beige both in light shades – so if you do not fall under those two shades, you will not be able to find a match.

Save your money for something else! There are definitely better products out there at this price.

Shiseido Maquillage has hooked up with London-based designer Christopher Kane for its latest Fall 2008 Mode Mix Collection to appeal to the hip and young. The collection features a new eyeshadow duo (Forming Shiny Eyes), blush (Designer Cheek Colors), eyebrow pencil (Soft Brow Liner) and new colors for its famous Lasting Climax Rouge. Shiseido has also hired it model Agyness Deyn, along with 4 Japanese celebrities – Anne Watanabe, Chiaki Kuriyama, Misaki Ito and Yuri Ebihara – to demonstrate the 5 different looks for the collection. My favorites are Modern Mix and Lovely Mix. What are yours?
