Brown Woman's Burden, Part 2

Hi ladies,
Thank you so much for participating in week eleven of SYB's "Free at Last" Giveaway Extravaganza! This week's winner is "I'm Glossy Myn Juan" (I mean, the name alone deserves some sort of gold-plated trophy)! Miss I'm Glossy, shoot me an email at with your address so I can send you your prize: A selection of items from Dior Beauty Summer '09 Collection. Congrats, doll! Ladies, come back next Monday and compete to win products from haircare legend, Oscar Blandi! Now, onto the beauty.

Girls, I am SO very excited about this new product. Listen, I love being brown. Love it. But there are some definite drawbacks, one of which is the fact that brown skin scars if you BREATHE on it wrong. And the scar seems to last forevah. Doesn't it? We've all experienced the frustration of a pimple that disappears in a week, only to leave behind a scar that lasts for an entire season of Lost. Who hasn't been through gallons of concealers and fade creams in an effort to get rid of all those little zit scars? Good news, chicas! Clinique's brand-new Even Better Makeup SPF 15 ($24.50) is blended with Vitamin C and other assorted acne-scar-zapping ingredients, which promise to even out your complexion in a month! This stuff has been getting rave reviews from industry insiders, so I ran out to get mine last week. So far, I'm loving it. The great thing is, while the foundation is working to erase dark spots, it makes your skin look incredibly luminous and radiant (it's blended with all sorts of illuminating minerals). Plus, it has SPF, which is obviously important. Try it!!

I'm a Clinique Insider and just did a video review of the new even better makeup on their website. It's wonderful!

I had to stop wearing liquid foundation a long time ago. Even the oil-free stuff breaks me out. I find that mineral make-up keeps me zit-free, but it don't cover a thing! I might pick this up for those occasions where pictures are involved and more coverage is required. I'd be interested to hear if you find this make-up at all zit causing!

But does it *cause* acne? What's in it? The label doesn't say that it is non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic... Can you give more info?
