Confessions and Concealer (A Review and a $100 Spa Finder Gift Card Giveaway!)
This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and OLAY.
Confession #1 I love wearing makeup.
Confession #2 I have even been known to wear makeup to the gym.
Confession #3 I’m not ashamed.
Every since I was a young girl, I have enjoyed playing with makeup. Years later, I still love to “play” with makeup but I rarely have the time to lock myself away in my bedroom painting, contouring, lining, and blending. As a busy mom to two kids, mornings are most often hectic and as much as I’d like to spend 20 minutes smearing and smudging the perfect smoky eyes (Yes, I would totally wear smoky eyes during the day to the grocery store.), the fact is, I get very little time to get ready. This means one thing: simplify.
We all know that the simplest way to have great skin is to get regular quality sleep, eat a well balanced diet, and drink plenty of water. But sometimes even with my best intentions my skin needs a little help.
Not enough sleep? Ahem Whether I am going for a natural fresh face look or a more glamorous look, I always start by making the most of my complexion. I had just finished the last of my eye moisturizer and was looking for something new when I received the opportunity to review Olay Total Effects Line and Dark Circle Minimizing Brush.
It’s a moisturizer and a concealer in one. Love multi-fuction! You simply click the button on the bottom of the stick once or twice and then brush on and, voila, no more dry skin and dark circles.
So what do I think after wearing Olay Total Effects Line and Dark Circle Minimizing Brush for a few days?
I like that it moisturizes and gives light coverage. Two steps in one!
It goes on really smooth.
The brush is soft and fun to use. Makes me feel like an artist!
I really really like the click dispenser. It seems I waste less than if it were in a bottle.
My skin tone looks more even.
It comes in one shade “For Most Skin Tones”. I’m really fair, and while it totally works, I think a shade lighter might be nice.
I prefer products with simple ingredients lists and this one was a tad long.
