I had seen this and the pressed powder reviewed by Ruth's mum over on A Model Recommends and as I had just finished off my Max Factor concealer (having only in the last 3 weeks worked out how you use concealer, I know, I have no right referring to myself as a beauty blogger!) I decided to give this a whirl. I have rosacea on my cheeks and my chin and nose are always really red, I struggle with foundation as nothing seems to completely cover the redness and I hate it.
I was really impressed when I tested this in Boots, it is incredibly creamy - not far off the wonderful Bobbi Brown concealer in a little pot that I spent twenty odd quid on years ago and had no idea how to use so left it to dry out. Kicking myself now. I applied this liberally to my chin, nose, cheeks, under eye and eye lid and really buffed it in and then applied my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua on top and hey presto no more red face for me! I was really surprised just how much less red my chin especially looks with this under my foundation and would strongly recommend this to anyone with redness issues. Of course love this so am now convinced I need the compact that goes with. It is so cute!
Not the most amazing photo ever, FOTD is very minimal at the mo as am going to the gym four mornings a week, get me!, so I have to have enough slap to not scare the guests at breakfast but not so much I look like an scary clown as it sluices down my face in the gym!
Redness Solutions Corrector is £15, couldn't find it on Boots site but it is here on the Clinique site and the pressed powder which is next on my wish list is £24 how cute it this?

Post edit: just realised this post could sort of do with a before photo, am a martyr to my blog so am prepared to post this glorious photo once again so you can see what I am up against with this redness thang.
Holy crap, how hatchet faced do I look in this. So anyway, if you were doubting the efficacy of this concealer; doubt no more!
