Good morning fam!
How’s your day? Almost the weekend. Does that mean anything anymore? I used to look forward to the weekend. Movies, shopping, brunch, dinner out, seeing friends, socializing, doing fun stuff….! Movie theaters aren’t even open here yet and forget about seeing friends as we are all avoiding each other like the plague still. We’re good New Yorkers trying to keep the curve down.
How are you things where you are? Hopefully good. If you’re in Arizona, California, Texas, Arizona, or any other hard hit states please know you’re in my heart right now! Stay inside, stay safe.
I’ve been keeping pretty busy. You know me and my long list of things I want to do. I did a bunch of house chores yesterday and I treated myself to actually sitting down for 90 minutes to watch a movie. I went all 80s and re-watched Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Man, Phoebe Cates though…! Do you know she’s 56 years old now? What? How did that happen?
Speaking of aging I feel about 180 today. My eyes are sooooo puffy! I really need to stuff sleeping on my stomach with my face buried in my pillow. It really makes my eyes super puffy 🙁 Concealer is of course, as always, my best friend.
What’s your favorite concealer at the moment?
Mine is below.
So, mine is, drum roll please, Covergirl TruBlend Undercover Concealer. I tried this when it first launched a few months ago and I didn’t give it the proper time of day as I remember disliking it. I’m really quick to judge concealer one swipe and a little blending and I’ll tell you right away if I’m keeping or ditching it. This got tossed into the ditched pile.
For some reason, I hauled it out recently and re-tried it and ended up kind of digging it. I needed some a little peachier and darker than my normal Tarte Shape Tape because I tan easily and at the moment my skin is a little darker than normal. I had this on hand and started playing around with it and suddenly it’s my go to daily now. I think it’s sort of Covergirl’s nod to Shape Tape with the overlarge applicator but the pigment and coverage isn’t quite there but all in all, it provides medium coverage and with good eye cream it blends quite easily for me. I think I didn’t like it before because it sheered out and had a drier look but I started using it with Peter Thomas Roth Hungarian Thermal Water Eye Cream (also, obsessed with this at the moment!) and it seems to go on nice and smooth. It brightens up my eye area nicely and does a fairly good job concealing that puffiness and making my eyes look well rested again.
How about you?
