I'm Still Here

while my posting has been nonexistent the last few weeks don't feel i have forgotten about you! my family has a lot going on right now, a bun in the oven, a house on the market... which means a few things have fallen on the back burner for the time being, and one of those is blogging. i love doing this but i just have to focus on my family for a little bit. i'll try to post when time allows, please don't give up on me.

 moving on, i have a product to recommend that i have been loving! i ran out of my current concealer and i decided to splurge on a new MAC one. while at the counter i was introduced to a new product, the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer.

i typically prefer a stick or cream concealer, not a liquid, but this liquid actually provides MEDIUM to FULL coverage. wow. that isn't easy to find in a liquid concealer. the coverage is smooth, the finish is matte, lasts up to 15 hours and looks fresh all day. my favorite feature is that it doesn't wipe off.

while i typically have dark circles under my eyes, they seem to get exponentially worse when i am pregnant and i need the maximum amount of coverage to keep me looking fresh and bright eyed. this concealer has been the perfect solution and at its price point ($16) it is not too much of a stretch from your typical drug store concealer. my only complaint would be that the pump expresses a little too much product, and i hate wasting this liquid gold.

in the realm of grail or fail, this concealer ranks on my GRAIL. thanks again for reading and please don't stop checking in.

  6. I love a good concealer. Not only do I have dark circles, but I have very dark eyelids. Without concealer, I literally look like a raccoon. It's not pretty. Mary Kay concealer is the only one that has ever worked for me, but I would definitely be interested in trying this one out.
