This morning, I read a lovely and (as usual) humorous post by Deb which gave her readers a glimpse of what goes on in the background before posts go up on her blog. Of course I thought it was a great idea and I have decided to replicate it here on mGm.
Let’s talk about this right now. It isn’t a new topic and I know it’s been discussed many many times before, but the problem hasn’t gone away. It’s 2016 and we are still making an issue out of something as trivial as skin colour. Judge me, if you must, on my merits and my actions. But the colour of my skin, really? Something I was born with and have no control over?
My eye sockets have a natural tendency to be dark. No matter how much I sleep, hydrate or religiously apply cucumber slices, without concealer, I look like I need more (I don’t actually do the last one but it illustrates the point). In fact, sometimes, even with concealer, I look exhausted because of the dark circles.
I am forever looking for a concealer that is not only the right shade (hello, difficult if you’re a person of colour) but is blendable and stays in place. I can’t deal with thick pastes that are like cold peanut butter being smeared on dry toast.
The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer has had rave reviews by nearly every blogger and their dog so natch, I had to give it a whirl.
Aesop is an Australian production that has been around for nearly three decades. It boasts high-grade, potent ingredients that are both safe and effective.
I’ve walked past many an Aesop boutique and liberally used some of their hand balms from the tester bottles. I have combination skin that handles exfoliation well but with winter approaching, and the recent disposal of my microbead cleansers, I thought I might do something different with my skin without drying it out. A trip to Myer ensued and here we are.
