Hello lovelies! Today's post is all about Ebay makeup. I've decided to start a cheap Ebay products series as I've gathered quite a collection. I hope that it's something you guys are interested in. I mean, who can resist an Ebay bargain? I have been a little wary of buying cheap makeup from China as it isn't clear what the ingredients are. You may remember my first Ebay bargains post (which you can find here) where I'm pretty sure the eyelash glue was just super glue in a fancy tube. All I will say is stay clear kids. You don't want to be walking around like the fly. I did a little research this time and everyone has been giving Ebay makeup a big thumbs up so I thought I'd give it a go. Today I'm focusing on concealing and contouring as it's something we're all still going crazy for. Damn those Kardashians for adding an extra ten minutes to our makeup routine (still totally worth it though).

Ebay Concealer And Contour Palette: (£1.77)


So as you can see, this Conceal and Contour Palette has a range of colours starting with your basic colour correcting shades. Here's a quick guide to colour correcting.

Colour Correction Basics:


Green concealer conceals redness (eg. blemishes and acne scarring)
Purple/lilac concealer conceals yellowness (eg. dull yellow skin)
Orange/salmon concealer conceals blue/ purple tones (eg. dark circles)
Yellow concealer conceals purple/blue tones (eg. dark circles and bruises)

The shades in the first two rows of the Ebay concealer palette are amazing at colour correcting and concealing those skin problems that always seem to show through foundation. I've mainly been using the green, yellow and salmon shades as my acne scarring and dark circles are difficult to cover. The concealers are super creamy giving perfect pigmentation. Usually I'm a brush kind of girl but I definitely recommend using your fingers to apply as they warm the product and increase the coverage. Once you've covered the areas, just apply your foundation. I find a beauty blender works best as you don't have to rub the products to blend them.

The darker shades in the cream contour palette are ok. I know that sounds unenthusiastic but I'm still not a cream contour convert. I have played around with a few of the lighter brown shades and they work for my skintone but I just don't have the patience to blend that out aswell as a powder contour and not to mention my eyeshadow. If you are a cream contour fan, there are so many colours in this palette making it suitable for all skin tones. The only thing that I'm disappointed with is the highlighter. It is so bad that I can barely even see it on my finger. That aside, it's totally worth a look for the price. At least you can throw it out if you don't like it.

La Girl Pro Concealer Shade Porcelain: (£2.99)


As I live in the UK, La Girl is a brand that I've wanted to to try for a while but I couldn't get my hands on. As soon as I spotted this on Ebay I knew I had to snap it up. It was actually cheaper than any drugstore concealer that I've tried so that was another thing that persuaded me.

After I've done all my colour correcting and my foundation has been applied, I like to use this La Girl Pro Concealer to highlight under my eyes. This stuff is crazy and I can't believe I've waited so long to try it. I think this may be the first concealer I've found that has a shade lighter than my makeup (#palegirlproblems). In fact they have 24 shades meaning that everyone is covered. I've even seen girls buy a light and a dark shade to contour with.

At first I was terrified that the La Girl Pro Concealer was too pale but I was wrong and it blends out so well giving me a lovely under eye highlight. What I don't like about this concealer is that it is difficult to squeeze out. When I say difficult, I mean really difficult. You have to give it a good squeeze but once the tube is flowing it is fine. I also noticed that the product has small lumps in it but thankfully they blend straight out. I'm definitely going to stock up on a few of these as I love it. Dare I say, I like it more than the Lasting Perfection concealer.

So this time there has been no tears, tantrums or allergic reactions so if you're after some cheaper alternatives for contouring and concealing I'd definitely recommend giving these a go. If anyone would like any tutorials let me know as I'm trying to squeeze more time in to change my blog up.

What's your thoughts? Have you tried any of these products before?

  1. Sophie, I am SO excited you are doing this series because I am a huge Ebay junkie but haven't tried a ton of their bargain makeup! So I'm glad you're willing to be the guinea pig for us and let us know about your finds :D That concealer palette looks amazing and has every color you could want...too bad the highlight isn't that great although I have about a zillion of those but not one concealer palette that has a variety of colors so that is a huge bargain. Thanks for sharing gorgeous girl, I hope you're having a great week! XO -Kim

  3. These look like nice concealers. I have heard multiple times to apply certain products with the fingers in order to warm it up. I think it can make or break how the product applies. The pallete look really nice as well as the brushes.And what a bargain. Michele xx

  6. The concealer/contouring palette looks pretty nice and that it comes in different shades. Very affordable and lucky are those who have no sensitive skin, cos for someone like me who have sensitive skin, I'm afraid it could cause me breakout at some point. But that's only my opinion, other way its a good find and bargain! Glad you found one, Sophie!
    And the LA pro, wish I could try it too. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, hun

  20. Really happy I stumbled upon your blog. I find with eBay it can be a bit of a hit and miss especially with China representing a few knock off makeup dupes. Got a contour pallet and it went on my face like vaseline just slightly pigmented. Quite up for giving that pro conceal a go because I've actually seen a good few things about that product too. I'm in a similar position and quite tired of the collection lasting perfection concealer, so if you say this ones better I'm definitely getting on that!

    Anyway, most of these beauty items on Ebay are from China! In fact the location of this palette you mentioned is Hong Kong!
    Some products are good, some are not so good, but I think that at such low price we can't expect so much, right?
    Lovely photos as always darling! *-*
