Here is a brown spot on my wrist that I am testing the product on to show you the coverage.

One small dot of the concealer. The color is the lightest shade in Ivory.

..and that is it blended and dried! Full coverage!!
I gave this 4 out of 5 stars because it dries really fast. You have to do one eye at a time. The best thing to do is to make sure you wear a primer underneath your eyes or moisturize. I use my fingers to pat it out and blend.
This is great for undereye circles. Most concealers that I try usually fade but this one stays put. I bought it for $6.48 at Wal-Mart so it's a steal. I haven't had any breakouts or weird reactions to this concealer and I am loving it.
I did buy a really light shade for my But for some reason it works for me since I am just using it for my dark circles. I have really, I mean really bad circles from not taking care of my skin when I was in high school. I never wore sunscreen so I think that made it worse :P But I apply this on after my primer, let it sit then apply my foundation over it. It really brightens under my eyes and I love it.
Some might find this too drying..which is why I said to make sure you moisturize or wear primer underneath it. It is a great price and a steal in my case. I have an Estee Lauder one and I like this one much better. As far as blemishes go, this might work for them too. I haven't tried since I only use this for my dark circles.

..i wanted to take a picture of these because they are soothing my mind :P My monthly friend is on her way to visit and all I have been thinking about it eating chocolate.
So today the lil fam went out to eat at Lotus Thai which is our favorite Thai restaurant here. They've got a buffet and is awesome! I mean they've got papaya, egg rolls, seasoned chicken wings, pad thai, fried rice, and a ton of other stir frys, plus they've always got some sorta sweet coconut dessert thing there that switches on and off. It's not big but they flavors they have are awesome.
Anyways I am standing in line and I see that they are bringing out more egg rolls and chicken wings, since they were running out. ..and then all of a sudden, these damn chinese ladies (i don't mean to offend anyone) that are most likely over 30 and their grandma budge in front of me. Not only that, I know it's a buffet but they grab 3 of each of everything. I was pretty irritated because I was standing there patiently waiting for them to finish and they didn't even acknowledge or say sorry that they pretty much shoved me out of the way. I am just complaining and I told my husband that I couldn't believe the granny budged me too! They were also being rude to the staff members there and asking what was in each dish and if there was fish sauce in the food, and the staff lady says, "we have fish sauce in all of our food that we cook!" lol ..come on it's a staple in asian cuisine.
but ya, i just wanted to write about it because thinking about it still irritates me.

Awww hope the 24h range will be available in more places soon! :D

Aww men, I know what you mean by these ladies. I guess some people are just greedy and don't think about others. I must say you have a very good patience. If it was me I think I would burst out with a 'Excuse me?!?!?!?' I've been burdened with people like that my whole life so it's about time I took a step forward. And gotta say, I feel so much better :) (not sure if I would so it in front of someone big though O_O LOL)

I had one of those at Forever 21 last month - I don't know what it is about FOB Asian women of a certain age, but paying attention to those in line just doesn't seem to matter to them, nor do Western manners.

I don't know what nationality she was, but she was barking at anyone she could see that worked there, about a leather jacket...and after like 5 minutes, started bitching about how no one came to tell her about a size. LOL

Then of course, she stepped to the front of the line to the cashier counter in front of me, completely ignoring the fact that there were people in line. She was with her teenage daughter (who u KNOW knew better).

(Sigh) I let it go - I think I'm more irritated with myself that I didn't bitch them out but they were only buying one thing, and the time it would've taken to confront them was more than I wanted to invest in the situation.

hahahhah I love your rant about the granny. Same thing happened to me, but it was in a chinese food store. I was next in line when all of the sudden this older lady butt in front of me and I was like WTH?!? So I told her "excuse me I was next in line." She totally ignored me and pretended that she doesn't speak nor understand English and proceeded to get her items check out....argggg! I hate rude people no matter what nationality and age they are! lol!

hey, i don't know how to look for a good concealer. lol, i've been grabbing whatever and think it looks good on me. how do you decide what color/shade is best?

anyways i know how that feels like. i've encounter so many illed - mannered people.

lol, i remember one time my uncle and i went to the hmong farmers market up here to buy some food. you know how it's always busy in the food section... anyways my uncle and i waited a good 25 minutes when it was finally our turn to go up - this bitch ass lady budged in front of us and totally ignored us.

my uncle was like sasha are you gonna say something? lol i was pretty much speechless - then my uncle goes and says - 'hey, do you not have manners? at least say something to excuse yourself' haha, then she looked at my uncle and stepped aside.

aurgh. anyways i didn't actually catch but found a girl not close to 12 years old stealing! how that piss the shit out of me.

how have you been feeling?

Oh my gosh, I CANNOT stand pushy Chinese women! They are just the worst!! I don't mean to be racist or offend anyone, but damn they don't get personal space and can be so rude!

For example, I HATE going to the chinese super market when it's busy because no one understands personal space. They'll shove you and ram their carts into yours and omg, guess what else?! THey will even grab stuff out of my cart every so often! I have to watch my cart and everything in it like a hawk. Sometimes they trade out their ugly produce with my nice veggies/fruit that I spend quite a while digging for in the pile of produces.

Hey girl, can I ask you a question?

So I purchased the Glamour Green contacts from like you suggested. However, I wrote to them multiple times to inquire about when I would be expecting my package (I specifically asked for a tracking #). However, no one has written me back. There's no phone number for which I can call someone to ask/follow up with the order.

I'm starting to said you got your package in 2 weeks, right? Hmm, this is so frustrating! Any help/advice?
