I just have a basic hate-hate relationship with Monday mornings. I hate mornings, and I particularly hate Monday because it reminds me that I haven’t amassed enough wealth to sleep in and start work at the exact time I want to, you know, like 1 PM. But, I regress; I’m here to talk about yet another one of my Monday Morning beauty saviors. And, this week it’s a concealer that I have become 100% addicted to — Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer. This do-it-all concealer is our Monday Morning Must Have of the week!
What it does:
Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer banishes the appearance of dark circles and imperfections while it blurs the look of lines and wrinkles. It’s infused with skin care benefits, including coconut water to replenish moisture levels, Alpine rose to brighten and boost radiance, and hyaluronic acid for a smoother, more youthful look. Creamy and comfortable, a proprietary blend of color correctors create the look of flawless skin. The result: a complexion that appears naturally radiant when applied over or under foundation—even when worn alone.
Why it’s a must have:
Take a look at my before photos and you can see that have an issue with dark circles. Of course, these are exacerbated by my late nights, allergies and red wine consumption… No worries though now that I have my Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer on board.
There are several reasons why Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer is such a winner with me — let’s start with color. All too often, concealers on brown skin are just plain too ashy or beigy, there’s not enough red on yellow in them. But, I chose the color “Tan” which has golden undertones, and it’s a perfect fit. The color is spot on for my light medium brown olive tan skin. (Yep, I fit into all those categories when I choose complexion products). Additionally, this concealer is creamy and blends perfectly. I have used my fingers, a sponge or blender and a brush to blend it, and no matter the choice, I have a perfect application every time.
As for wear, Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer lasts all day without creasing or fading. I love that it subtly highlights the under eye area, and at the same time looks “perfectly” natural. It doesn’t get dry or crack either — it truly is a creamy consistency, which I love.
