Review of Arbonne’s Crème Concealer

I’ll make this a quick review as I’m recovering from a rough few weeks with myasthenia gravis (MG).  Last Tuesday, I was in the hospital.  On Saturday, I pushed myself to attend my godson’s 15th birthday.  The day before I told my cousin I might not be able to attend her son’s birthday.  As someone who survived Hodgkin’s Lymphoma twice, she was very understanding.  But on Saturday, I felt like I had enough in the tank to go.  I left after 40 minutes but still I went.  Winning!  One of the most important parts of my beauty routine is wearing concealer because I hate looking tired.  Arbonne is a vegan company; our cosmetics don’t use the toxins present in 90% of U.S. cosmetics.  Arbonne’s Crème Concealer ($23.00) comes in three different shades: Light (click here #7865), Medium (#7866), and Dark (#7867).

Steps:

1 – primer: I put primer on my whole face.  Arbonne’s primer ($42.00; catalog #7825) is really soft, not sticky.  The purpose of primer is to make makeup last all day.

2 – concealer: After using primer, I applied my concealer under my eyes and on my nose.  I used a brush I got from the art store; art store brushes are cheaper thank makeup brushes.  Because there is no special angle needed for concealer (such as a stippling brush used for contouring), an art store brush brush was fine.

3 – foundation:  After blending in the concealer using the brush and my finger (the finger closest to my pinky), I used a foundation brush to apply Arbonne’s Got You Covered Mineral Powder Foundation Broad Spectrum 15 SPF in Bisque ($42.00;#6612).

4 – other: I applied a light blush, a little bronzer (Arbonne’s bronzer is great for contouring) $36.00 catalog #7824, and a little eyeliner.  Because we’re still experiencing summer weather where I am, I went light with my blush, bronzer, and eye makeup.  During the summer, I wear eyeliner or mascara–but not both.

Why I Do Arbonne

I am an Arbonne Independent Consultant.  I do it because it’s a good way for a tired person with five illnesses to supplement income.  Also, I sometimes give makeovers to sick women (so far, mostly cancer and autoimmune patients).  I only feel comfortable using vegan, natural products for these makeovers; I can’t take risks with another person’s health.  If you have any questions about these products, please leave a comment below.  Also, if you do purchase anything, please purchase at http://jessicalynngimeno.arbonne.com/.  (You can browse products without registering.  However, if you do buy something, you need to register as a client.) Consultants have brand new, individual websites (please don’t go to www.arbonne.com).  Because of these changes, a customer no longer has to input a consultant’s ID # for the consultant to get RV credit.

Hi, I have five illnesses--bipolar disorder, myasthenia gravis (neuromuscular autoimmune disease), polycystic ovarian syndrome, asthma, and psoriasis. Most of the organs in my body are affected. I'm dedicated to being a stylist for sick women. As someone who has experienced changes in my appearance due to my 12 meds (including Prednisone), I know how hard it can be when your face and body change overnight. (In fact, because of treatment, between 2008 to 2010, I went from a size 0 to a size 10. While I lost the weight, there are permanent changes in my face and body, which I've grown to appreciate.) My blog will also help women deal with other issues like surviving chronic pain and fatigue. Healthy people can also use this blog as a window into what life with illness is like. Let this website be a place where we can draw strength from each other despite our illnesses and find solutions to our everyday challenges!
