I have a ridiculous/humiliating story that goes along with my discovery of this wonder product.
In November, I took my mom for a mani/pedi for her birthday. I tipped the women after and I guess I tipped them more then they are used to, because she was insistent that she give me a complimentary eyebrow wax as a thank you. I was due for one anyway so even though it wasn’t my normal place to get it done, I agreed. When she finished, my eyebrows looked great, but that’s when the story took a turn for the worse… She asked if I had ever considered a lip wax. I gasped in horror and thought to myself, “OH MY GOD do I need it? Why have my friends never told me!? Those JERKS!!” She laughed and said my hair was very blonde and not noticeable, but I may look smoother if I did it. I told her yes, for cripes sake, take it all off.
I had no idea what I was in for. The lip wax was one of the most painful things I have ever experienced and I almost yelped. As I walked up to my mom, eyes watering, she was starring at me like I had two heads (two heads with smooth, perfect eyebrows). She said I looked red and asked if I was okay, but I didn’t think anything of it and wanted to get my shop on, so away we went. I walked into a store and glanced at the mirror to check out my new arches, and all hell broke loose. I kid you not; I looked like I had a bright red mustache and a red unibrow looking mark on my forehead. It is safe to say I never looked uglier. Like the ugly stick had just had its way with me.
I screamed and grabbed my mom by the hand and dragged her into Sephora, bee lining for the first concealer I could find. I picked up the Amazing Cosmetics AmazingConcealer and piled it on my face like it was foundation. In a matter of minutes, my face was calmed down and normal-ish looking, so I could leave the corner of the store in which I was huddled, using my mom as a shield from public.
I immediately bought the concealer because if it can save my face in a time like that, I knew it would do wonders for normal day to day cover-ups. It’s light, a little goes a long way and I would say, though it’s steep at $42, it will last you, and it’s worth it.
My other tip of the day: Always, always, always, save waxing for the end of a shopping trip, and bring a bag to put over your head.
