Pardon My Dust

I have convinced Darin to revamp my blog!  I need something fresher, cleaner, and more fun funner.  Don't worry if the blog looks crazy-- give it a week or so.  I am itching to get some new outfits posts up for you, but in the meantime, enjoy this resemblance of Gabriel to an obscure Arrested Development character.
Much love!

Julep DD Creme & Concealer: 1st Impressions and Review

Hi everyone!  I received my June Julep Maven box yesterday and I couldn't wait to show you the brand spankin' new paraben-free DD Creme and Concealer within it.  The box costs $19.99 each month with the option to skip, which I haven't done as much as I'd like to admit.  Sigh.  Considering that Julep sells both products for about $30 each, I wanted to jump on this limited time offer.  (Julep sells primarily 5-free nail polish, but I have placed myself on a temporary ban from that addictive stuff.)

On to the (untouched) photos! Bare face:
 With DD Creme in the color medium, which has a great consistency.
Thick with some tack to it, moisturizing, and comfortable on the skin.

With DD Creme and Concealer in the color light:
I LIKE IT!  It calms down my hyper-pigmentation, evens my skin tone, and gives me a nice glow.  But... and this is a BIG butt... both tubes seem to be about half-full, especially the already teensy tube of concealer.  It seriously feels like I might have five more uses out of that dinky thing.  I would consider purchasing the DD Creme again, but not the concealer, as its lasting power was not impressive on my bigger blemishes.  Also, $30?  No frank you.  

Here's the three photos together so that you can get the full effect.  The only room for text was on my glorious five-head. 
What say you?
