When I went to Oklahoma to be taped for the Bush’s Grillin’ Beans segment, I had the privilege of having Trisha Yearwood’s makeup artist do my face for the taping. She was just the most amazing miracle worker ever and I would’ve loved to stuff her in my suitcase and take her home with me. Every woman should have a professional makeup artist living with her. It would just make life that much better. Don’t you think?
My biggest cosmetic concerns now that I’m in my 40′s are the bags and circles under my eyes. Due to my Mediterranean blood, my circles are more pronounced than most, so I’ve been looking for ways to conceal my under eye issues without much luck.
So when I found myself in front of a real deal makeup expert, I asked for advice on how to make all of that under eye nastiness disappear. The first thing she told me was that it was going to be expensive. I assured her that money was no object in this quest. Then she said two magic words. Bobbi Brown.
Bobbi Brown cosmetics are not cheap, but they are effective. To prove her point, my new- found best friend applied a very pink looking substance under my eyes which is simply called Corrector. I was shocked when the pinky pasty stuff made the purplish circles under my eyes disappear. Why didn’t I know about this stuff sooner? Why??? And while I do find the $22.00 price a little off putting, it sure costs less than cosmetic surgery.
The next step in this quest for eyes that look like they actually get enough sleep, is the Creamy Concealer Kit. The darker stuff on the left goes over the Corrector and the lighter stuff to the right is really a powder that you dust on after applying the concealer that pulls everything together.
The website touts that the kit has won awards from O magazine, Self and Brides, and I believe it. For a mere $32.00 I saw a drastic change in the appearance of my eyes. I daresay I looked youthful.
All in all, I paid $54.00 for everything needed to make this Italian Jew’s eyes look like they’ve actually gotten a decent night’s sleep this month. And I haven’t. It’s all a happy illusion due to this fabulous Bobbi Brown makeup that is worth every penny they ask for it. If you are dark like me and need something to make your eyes look a little less haggard, then run to Macy’s, Nordstrom’s or wherever else you find expensive makeup and pick this up stat. You won’t regret it.
Bobbi Brown did not pay me to write this post. This is completely my own opinion of a product that I paid full price for. And I’d do it again in a nano second.
