Dior Makes The Only Concealer I’ve Ever Finished

The thing with concealer is that you use such a small amount of it at a time because it’s so pigmented, so they’re almost impossible to finish.  By the time you even hit pan, you’re on the next latest thing or just out of using concealer in general, so that never works. Nonetheless, over the […]
