The Multi-Tasker…

As a general rule I don’t normally endorse products from the same company back to back. However this being a new year, rules were meant to be broken (especially by this goody 2 shoes), plus this product is way too good to keep all to myself.

Perricone MD’s No Concealer, Concealer is the brilliant product I am referring to. I cannot multi-task to save my life and quite frankly, the people who think they can, well, they’re kind of kidding themselves. Not Dr. Perricone though, he has managed to make a concealer that not only hides fine lines and brightens the under-eye area but also acts as an amazing eye shadow primer. This is hands down the best concealer I have ever used, it goes on smooth, really brightens and doesn’t settle into my well-earned crows feet, in fact it just about erases those fine lines altogether. Dark circles are a thing of the past and I have to tell you I don’t miss them. No Concealer, Concealer comes in 1 shade that really is suitable for most skin tones (it works perfectly with mine) and gives great, long wearing coverage to last throughout the day, plus it is one of the only concealers out there that offers SPF 35 protection.

One gentle pump (if you pump too hard too much comes out and it’s wasted), warm it between your fingers and pat it all around your under-eye area and lid (to use as an eyeshadow primer) and you are looking 5 years younger. To really perk up your peepers, gently pat some on where your nose meets your eyes.

No Concealer, Concealer will set you back $45 but as I mentioned with Blue Plasma if you order directly from and use their auto replenishment service you save 10%.

I cannot say enough about how much I love this stuff. I just recently travelled (which does unpleasant things to my skin) and I got off the plane looking well rested and feeling amazing.

Here’s to the no eye lift, lift via the No Concealer, Concealer!

I always wanted to be Sydney Bristow…

When it began in 2001, Alias, starring Jennifer Garner was just about my favorite program on tv.  Like the Bionic Woman (my 1st favorite tv show), Alias had a female lead who was sensitive and tough as nails all in one.  Sydney Bristow kicked some serious butt as a member of SD6, a secret division of the CIA (which turned out to be a fraud agency), but that’s plot related and we’re talking products here.

So today’s featured item is essentially the Sydney Bristow of zit covering.  It’s another fairly new product in my arsenal, but I’ve fallen fast and hard and I’m pretty sure you will do the same.  It’s Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil and holy wow this stuff is amazing!  Like the infamous “Chubby” of blog’s past, this too looks like a rather stout lip pencil, but what it does is virtually erase any evidence of a blemish on your face.   It kicks the butt of any other spot concealer I have ever used, and it’s so user-friendly.  All you need is this stick and your finger (though I do prefer to use a synthetic make up brush). Put the tip of the pencil to your affected area and just pat it with your finger/brush.  That’s it!  It goes on creamy, dries like a powder and leaves no evidence of either on your face.  If I didn’t use it myself,  I’d never believe something could work this well.  Oh and at $18  ($22 in Canada) it’s a steal!!! (,  However the best part of this secret zit weapon is the variety of shades it comes in, all of which are named after government agencies, DEA, CIA, NSA, ATF, etc.

As an animal lover I’m also happy to tell you they are all vegan (which kind of makes you wonder what  some of the other concealers are made from…yikes).

So essentially with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Concealer Pencil, I finally get to feel like Sydney Bristow, taking on villains (in the form of acne and dark circles) and working for a high-powered government agency ( the NSA, that’s my shade).

I hope you all enjoy your undercover mission!  Happy shopping.
