Good Morning Ladies !

Hope you had a great weekend ! If you are a Mad Men fan, I'm sure it was. So good to get back to knowing what Don Draper has been up to.

I am in a really sunny mood today. I think, finding quality products at the neighborhood drugstore does this to me. Its the Milani HD Advance Concealer ($6.99) y'all. I not only love this product, I feel so good about it that I am recommending it to everybody !

Yellow Yellow Sweet Little Fellow

The Miani HD Concealer comes in a click pen model looking all bright and blingy in its gold packaging. One of the biggest concerns I've had with drugstore concealers has been the lack of yellow pigment. Most of them are pink or just plain beige. You pat it under your eye and they sit there staring into space ...doing nothing to hide your dark circles. This is why Milani gets much of my love - its truly yellow based. Check that out !

Nobody can complain about the lack of warmth. Its exactly what a warm skinned person like me needs to look bright and fresh !

Key Ingredients :
• Rona Coated Pigments that disguise dark shadows
• Invisaskin moisture base which keep the eye area hydrated,soften expressions lines and wrinkles
• Grant X Gamma Amino-Butyric Acid that plumps out creases, lines and imperfections
• Granactive RD 101 to help brighten and gently resurface the most delicate skin

Alicia Keys & I - Concealer Best Buds

I saw that the shade Medium Honey was used in Alicia Keys so I decided to try the same. Its perfect on my NC 40 (medium tan) skin tone. I almost feel like Alicia and I are best buds ! We use the same concealer , that's got to mean something !

One more major good thing about the concealer is the formula. I can never wear concealer and head out without applying some foundation because I feel like the concealer is too obvious. But with Milani HD one the formula sinks into your skin and merges with the top layer so well that I look naturally dark circle free. So now I don't have to add foundation just coz I did the concealer ! And for someone who likes to keep it as less as possible with makeup - this racks up huge points in favor of the concealer.

I am not the biggest fan of the click pen but really this isn't a complaint. I assume many women love it given that one of the best selling concealers of all times YSL Touche Eclat is a click pen.

Now all I want from Milani is to add a lot more shades so my deeper toned girlfriends get to try this too.

Hi IG!

Do you have any suggestions for removing makeup (eyeliner) from your waterline?

Hey Anon

I use a Q tip dipped in makeup remover - Neutrogena oil free makeup remover. It works like a charm !

I'm going to have to get this! Does it work on blemishes and scars as well? I always get acne right under my lip and it's such a dark spot :(

What's the difference between concealer and eye brightener?

Girls - gimme me your names to address you with - canon #1 , #2 aint so good :(
Anyhoo Anon # 1 - Yes I had a medium size red zit just above my brow and it worked pretty well at concealing it.

Anon # 2 - eye brighteners generally have some kinda reflecting properties. They usually give a pearly shine to the under eye area.
Regular concealers are creamy and just help cover up darkeness. Brighteners are better used over concealers. On their own they dont do a whole lot much for bad dark circles.
