Omigod, I may have just found my new favourite corrector duo. This is Liz (left) and Ronnie. Neither looks as though they've ever had a dark circle in their lives. Do they look like they're wearing makeup? I took these snapshots in natural light, no flash. Do you see any product caking or creasing under their eyes? Here, take a closer look:
Here's Liz, who is in her mid-30s.
And here's Ronnie, who is in her late 60s. I stood closer IRL and scrutinized their skin, and saw nothing.
Here, even closer.
See? Nothing thick, nothing cakey. But as you'll see from the before-and-after shots below, these ladies are not wearing nothing.
Liz and Ronnie are wearing only a brightening and concealing duo from newish Canadian company Boxx Cosmetics. And Ronnie applied it herself off camera before each of the brand's segments throughout the day. (Ronnie couldn't believe how quick and easy it was to put on -- "it takes just a couple of minutes!" she kept saying in wonder.)
I haven't tried the Boxx Cosmetics Cream Corrector Kit ($64.99 + S&H, theshoppingchannel.com) yet, but I'm dying to now. Not only is the texture insane -- it blends into skin so brilliantly -- the cream formulas contain ceramides and peptides, which hydrate and reduce signs of aging over time. Boxx founder Sandra Milligan says she worked on the formulation of her makeup line for eight years.
I'll have more info for you shortly. Ordinarily I'd research and sample before writing about it, but seeing the makeup on Liz and Ronnie in person on Monday sent me into full geek-out mode. Consider this a teaser. In the meantime, you can learn more and see the demo video here, on TheShoppingChannel.com. (Note how little makeup the ladies are wearing!)
Boxx Cosmetics launched last year and has hosted a couple of press events since then, neither of which I was able to attend. Did you happen to go? Have you tried this Boxx Cosmetics Cream Corrector Kit?
