What they say about the Camouflage kit -

To be honest , I do not really go out purposely to buy these palettes but when you are unsure of your tones and are looking for you first concealers, blemish covers or even highlighters and contouring shades this may come in handy and for only £4.95 , you can not complain .
Ingredients listed in the picture below -
I have had a few good experiences with this brand . One of my favourites was actually recently with their Purple Haze Palette and previous to that their Nail polishes which are rather lovely .
The packaging is simple , but I love the quirky writing style they have given this palette and it seems to make it more appealing than just a plain white case with boring black print.
The good thing about it is , it is easy to keep clean, we all know what it is like when we have fingertips of foundation/concealer and you simply dread touching anything that is a material or texture that is simply unpractical so I love the sleek finish to this packaging.
I actually love the extra details that W7 have given this nice little kit, the handy mirror and double ended brush which is not the typical sponge like applicator.
When I see palettes that have the sponge applicator inside, I instantly think that that brand has no idea of how to apply makeup or what people want so how are they going to know that the product itself is any good so W7 adding this little extra touch to their palette shows they are listening to the customers needs .
The nice little thing about this kit is that there are 5 different shades both yellow and pink based tones so even if you can not find one which matches, you can mix them a little to find a closer blend .
The texture of these are very creamy and gorgeously silky soft which is lovely as when blended they do not crack or emphasise creases or wrinkles in areas such as around the eye or lip area.
I would like to point out though that if you have oily skin , this may not be the best product fro you as I found that my oily areas on the face were emphasised by the product and my dry areas were perfect for it, combination skin really is a pain sometimes.
Personally , I prefer to use this under my foundation although I usually wear it over with other brands as I find it lightens the areas A little so the first one in the palette is fantastic for actually highlighting under the eye and the last one is perfect for contouring cheekbones and the nose slightly without making it look overly obvious that is what you were attempting to do .
I have very uneven skin tone, in fact around three to four different shades in different areas but this actually evens it out lovely for me if I need to make it a little more of a base shading correction and the redness that appears around my nose area is reduce also.
I think the only problem for me with this palette is that the pots are too small and because they are in palette form it makes it a little harder to use a bigger brush for the bigger coverage I need sometimes.
I actually love this kit and I do pull it out for brightening my under eyes and covering those late night under eye bags , using this as a concealer is ok for small areas suck as spot blemishes and red pimples but not for overall camouflage.
Have you given this Camouflage Kit a try, will you?
I think for only £4.95 , it certainly would be a miss not to .
So let me know what you think .
