Back when I wrote about my top 10 cheap beauty products, I touted the glories of Cover Girl CG smoothers concealer as the woman with The Worst Undereye Circles Ever. If that's all you've got, use it. Nothing bad has happened or anything. BUT if you have the chance to splurge a little and maybe get the Clinique gift with purchase haul along with it, snatch yo self some Clinique All About Eyes concealer. That link right there, btw, is to a store that's doing the 7 piece free gift promo right now.
Let's try a little before and after action. Fingers crossed this works...
Here are my real make-up free eyes on a good day, completely unedited. Good meaning over nine hours of sleep straight last night good. There is no better rested my eyes could possibly look sans concealer.
And here is ye old face, also totally unedited, with no change except the addition of a drop of the Clinique concealer for each eye (and I took my sunglasses headband [not pictured] off my head).
This post is not sponsored. Neither did they give me free product nor did they pay me, BUT if they would like to send me an entire case of this stuff I would not be sad. Not sad at all.
Back when I wrote that cheap products post, I also recommended Maybelline Full n' Soft mascara, which, if I'm not mistaken, is also the new favorite of a certain Mrs. Patton. Since then I've tried other stuff, both cheap (Revlon) and not so cheap (Clinique) and still nothing measures up. No clumps, good coverage, long lasting without flaking, no weird smell, no itchy eyes.
MAYBELLINE FULL N' SOFT 4 LYF.
If you have a fave splurge or steal, I'm all ears. Or eyes. As it were.
~*~*~*~p.s. if you had questions about the toothpaste post from Saturday, I talked to a chemist friend of mine [I actually have a friend who is a chemist. Isn't that weird?] about xylitol and she said that it is very beneficial to teeth but not so good for consumption. Not dangerous, per se, but could cause water retention and be a diuretic for some. Many people who can't eat sugar can use xylitol in desserts without negative effects. Also, do NOT let your dogs eat it or anything made with it. But if you use it in your toothpaste or chew gum with xylitol in it or use the xylitol wipes that dentists sometimes give out, you can feel confident your teeth will be the better for it. Hope this helps!
