Dear Radiant Creamy Concealer,
I’ve been thinking about writing this for some time. I am full of so much love and appreciation for you and I wanted to take the time to tell you what you mean to me.
Since Hunter was born last February I’ve cumulatively slept 4 hours. Most days I don’t know whether I’m coming or going. I never know the date and I have no idea when the last time I had a free moment. Unlike Beyonce, I wake up with the darkest circles under my eyes, dull skin, unruly brows, leaky boobs and rebellious hair.
Sometimes I scare myself.
But, when I gently pick you up, all I feel is love. You don’t judge me. You don’t tell me to pick up the tweezers. You look at me, ready and willing to get to work. It’s a type of love and support I haven’t experienced before with a concealer. And I am a better person because I know you.
Sometimes at night, I think about you and how I feel like you were meant for me. Fate brought me into that Sephora and called me to you. I can’t imagine living without you. You are part of my life every day and blend in with my skin so well I could cry. I have cried thinking about it. But, try not to cry often because I don’t want to ruin my concealer. Obviously.
When I need you, you’re there.
That’s real love.
You’re luxurious, hydrating and brightening. You’re beautiful and delicate and I only have eyes for you. You effortlessly hide my chronic insomnia and make me look five years younger. Thank you so much.
This Valentine’s Day and every day we are together I will sing your praises and treat you with love and respect and won’t let the baby throw you on the floor.
I love you so hard. You are the best in the game.
