Ok, so total make up novice really, but having just been to get colour matched for foundation at Boots, I figured I should also attempt to hide the massive bags under my eyes - and having seen it recommended I bought the Aldi concealer pen.
However. And I cant believe I am actually going to admit this, I cant figure out how it works - please remember - total make up novice. I take the lid of, there is a brush. A 'clicky bit' at the top a bit like a pen - which I am assuming is also important. A few hundred clicks have resulted in nothing
Thanks Derek, I must say I am very impressed with the colour matched foundation - I have quite dry skin and this seems to have covered ok. Plus, having spent a fortune on the wrong shade foundations over the years, I am really going for a change of image.
Good luck with the bb cream, hope it works with no spots
I had exactly the same issue last Sunday with my first Aldi concealer pen.
Have you tried clicking insanely for about ten minutes, then giving up and asking your DH to have a look? He will click it once and concealer will instantly ooze from the end, making you look like a useless plonker.
Enjoy it while you can! Aldi are discontinuing all their make up range. I'm gutted, I love the concealer, they have also discontinued their shimmering day cream. I actually emailed them to ask what was happening and that's when they emailed back to say it was discontinued and the makeup is too!
