MeMeMe Correct & Perfect Concealer Kit review

The other night I went to see The King's Speech in the cinema, in Santry, which has a Superdrug, so it would be wrong *not* to check and see what deals they had, correct??

Imagine my happiness when I came across this little beauty.  I would like to introduce you to the MeMeMe Correct & Perfect Concealer Kit.  It was on sale at a strangely priced €8.24.


It immediately made me think of the Laura Mercier Undercover Pot that I have wanted to try for ages but never got around to buying it.  The MeMeMe kit has just the one shade of concealer, but the rest of the features appear to be the same.

First of all, it has a little mirror in the lid, which makes me very happy!  That feature alone makes it more convienient when I'm on the go.

 Underneath the concealer is a little pot containing the finely milled setting powder.

I got mine in the shade Nude.  They had 3 shades and this was the one that had more peach in it for the undereye circles that plague me every day!

In daylight













I swatched the concealer and powder in daylight to attempt to show you the colour payoff.  The concealer is thick and creamy.  When I used it the first time, I used a concealer brush but I wasn't happy with the result, so I used my ring finger and that's how I applied it in the photos below.  Next time I try it, I'll use a blending brush like the Pixiwoo girls and see how I get on.

Left: Powder   -   Right: Concealer
Now on to the proper swatches, under the eyes themselves.  As I've mentioned before, the weekend is the only time I see daylight, so off I went to sit in front of my bedroom window applying concealer :)

The first photo is me with no concealer at all.  If you look closely at the eye on the right, I've a little scar from where I had a cyst removed a couple of years ago.  It's not a big scar at all and I don't worry too much about trying to hide it.


The second photo is with concealer and powder under the eye on the right.  The redness from the scar is gone.


The final photo is with concealer under both eyes. 


 I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I always have the fear that when it comes to concealer, I'll end up looking like poor Eva Longoria!  This product is great and I'll definitely be adding it to my makeup bag for work and for going out.  I've never had a concealer that had a setting powder before.  I've had my eye on Benefit's Erase Paste and Powderflage, but they're two products and pretty expensive.  The month of January has been a toughie money-wise, so if you're on a budget like myself, have a look at this the next time you're in Boots or Superdrug :)

  2. What did you think of The Kings Speech? I thought it was really well directed and Helena Bonham Carter stole the show for me!

  3. @Mariga I'll test it out at work tomorrow and see how it holds up.

    @SweetLikeJelly Loved the film, Colin Firth can do no wrong in my eyes (that being said, I haven't seen Mamma Mia yet hehe) Helena Bonham Carter was excellent. I was pointing out all the Harry Potter actors in it to my sister hehe
