PRODUCT: LORAC Evening Out Complexion Kit
A flawless evening finish needs to stay looking great all night long - which means no oily shine or makeup meltdown. Luckily, our friends at LORAC have come up with the perfect solution: the Evening Out Complexion Kit. It comes in a sleek gunmetal case and it’s no bigger than a smart phone, so it it will fit perfectly in the tiniest of evening bags. The kit features two creamy concealers and a smooth powder foundation, which are exactly the products I love to use on a daily basis. I want a concealer to cover blemishes and spots and a powder to even overall skin tone and give me that airbrushed look.
The LORAC Evening Out Complexion Kit in Light was wonderful for me. The concealers are the perfect shades for my skin and are silky smooth, covering all my problem spots. The powder does not have that dreaded powdery look that other ones tend to have, and the best part is that my skin looks great several hours after putting it on… no reapplying needed! I also love the puff applicator for the powder. It feels so nice against my skin.
Make sure you pick up the LORAC Evening Out Complexion Kit before your next night out and add one less worry to your list. Picking out your shoes, on the other hand…
