Introducing the Monday Mash-Up


In addition to now featuring an Avon or mark. product once a week, I am going to feature a combination of products each week that I love to use together…because beauty products don’t function in a vacuum! The Monday Mash-Up will highlight products that play well with others. It could be formulas that work well together, or colors I like pairing, or as in this week’s case, a combination of a tool + a product that work perfectly together.

This week’s Monday Mash-Up is a combo I have been using together for months now to conceal. I use the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Conceal in the shade Y0 and the Crown Brush Infinity Series Round Blender. I also use the Pointed Blender on occasion but the Round Blender is like my baby. This brush is my holy grail for concealer application!


The OCC concealer is such an awesome product. You barely need any at all and it covers. The shade Y0 is perfect for covering up redness or spots. I use the shade R0 if I want to highlight or use under my eyes, but the more neutral to yellow tones in Y0 are better for counteracting the reddishness left behind after a breakout, etc.


The formula of the concealer is creamy, but not so creamy that it doesn’t cover. When I first got this concealer I didn’t really know what I was doing with it and I was probably trying to apply way too much at a time, because I thought it was cakey. But it’s really just highly, highly concentrated so a teensy bit goes a long way. I’ve barely made a dent in mine at all after using it religiously for months. These days I haven’t been wearing any foundation at all, just a little bit of this in the a few necessary places (chin, around the nose, eyes). I don’t even powder it most days and it lasts all day. If you have oily skin I do suggest you set it with a powder though.


Always gotta love too that OCC products are 100% vegan! I wanted to include the shot of the bottom label so you could take a look at the ingredients, too.


And now the brush! This synthetic brush from Crown is truly perfect for concealer! It’s very dense, and the rounded fluffy shape is almost like applying it with your fingers – just way better. The brush + OCC concealer = my own personal magic eraser for my face!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Concealer is available from OCC and Sephora for $20.
Infinity Series Round Blender Brush is available from Crown Brush for $4.95.
