    Im not great at concealer application at the best of times but I'd try a foundation primer like hourglass followed by your concealer and then your nude by nature over the top.

    I really like Laura Mercier secret camouflage concealer and it might work for this situation as it's a thicker concealer. You can apply it very specifically with a thin concealer brush so you're only applying where you need.

    I also like rimmel wake me up concealer - but I use it for under eyes so I don't know how it would go on your nose.

    Mac studio fix concealer is also a thicker formula - and might be a winner providing you can get the colour right. I struggle with Mac colours.

    I would wait until your nose has healed and then if you can, head to a make up counter like Mac or Laura mercier and explain what you want to do. If they can get it to work on your skin, they could show you the technique they used and the product - then, and this is the important part! - walk away for a few hours if you can to see how it looks on you after a few hours.

    Some products don't last well even if they look great to start with and if you're going to invest in something you want to know it works.

    The other option is if you get a counter to show you and you find a product that works, in the few hours while you're walking away to see how it lasts, you could google "dupe for x brand concealer" and you might find a pharmacy brand or something more affordable you could try!

    You guys were so great with my makeup brush question, just wondering if I can ask another.

    I'm looking for a lip stain, as in something that will provide good coverage but not be glossy or tacky.

    I like a bit of colour but not the need to reapply regularly (because I simply don't & then I've only worn lipstick for the first hour!).

    Lip pencils maybe?

    Lip pencil will work but will be dry.

    I have started doing lipstick the 'Lisa Eldridge way'.

    Put normal lipstick on a brush and really work a small amount onto lips. Blot and repeat a few times. Fix up lip line with matching lip liner and then follow up with a final layer from the bullet.

    Otherwise for a tinted stain I have used Benetint from benefit and it gives a little rosy colour.

    YeahYeahYeah, I use Benetint Lip stain and find it stains, but can be a bit drying and I do find it needs reapplying to keep the stain.

    Although it's not a lip stain, I love 'Dior Addict Lip Glow'. It goes on sheer, but then goes in to enhance your natural lip colour.
    It's so not tacky/glossy (I'm not a fan of that either) not sticky at all, but glides on and is quite light. The colour lasts with minimal reapplication. I keep it in my bag for days where I don't feel like lipstick, but want a hint of colour and moisturised lips.

    I have it in pink and coral.

    I love Clinique chubby sticks. Great colours. Nice formula and more like a balm - but good pigmentation. Might not have the longevity but definitely not tacky or glossy.
    If you want more colour and more lipstick, Clinique have some new-ish matte lipsticks that are beautiful! The colour is amazing

    Thanks so much, will hit the shops& see how I go. I'm happy to wear lip balm over the top so maybe that will help with the drying issues. You girls are great!

    I use a Stila one from Mecca and it's great if you have a mecca near you go try some out, they also do one in their own brand and I think they sell the YSL one too which is meant to be good!

    I thought I'd share this because I'm so excited and no one in my house gets it I have just purchased the mac prep and prime 24 hr extended eye base, I put my make up on 3 days in a row at 7am and at 6pm it still looks great!!
    When I've gone to take my makeup off before bed it still looks good! This product is amazing!

    Thanks @ sparklebug, it's always good to hear reviews and feedback on products! I need a good eye base, I'm not really happy with my Urban Decay one, but I'll have to have a look at the MAC one.
