Well, Selena Gomez, color me impressed. Not only did I love how full my brows looked with Rare Beauty's two-sided gel/pencil combo, I was immediately inspired to buy the "Inspire" lip soufflé shade once I spotted it on a fellow editor.

And though I almost added the line's tempting foundation for "someone who dislikes wearing foundation" to my cart, I decided to test out the concealer in its place. It turned out to not be a mistake, and I couldn't be more pleased by the coverage from this little tube. Check out my before and after photos, and learn why I liked it, ahead.
