Make-Up by Shea Moisture

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

For many years different creams designed to fade, and some totally eliminate, dark circles around the eyes were applied to my face. In the end not one product delivered its promised results. Not one! So that’s when I decided if I truly want to rid myself of the dark circles I inherited from my mom I would have cosmetic surgery to do so.

But until that BIG DAY I still need to apply coverage. When I was a few years younger concealers worked however at age 48 a concealer alone is not enough. I thought about adding a color corrector to my make-up regimen but the natural brands I used did not offer colors that matched my skin tone.

Now that Shea Moisture provides natural make-up for women of color I ordered a few products and was excited to try them. I went to and selected colors I hoped was suitable for my complexion. I was very nervous about purchasing make up this way but I took a chance and bought the following:

  • Color correcting concealer in Medium Dark
  • Cream concealer in Tropea Almond
  • Sheer foundation in Madidi Mocha
  • Lip gloss in Lea


Me with no make up.


The color correcting concealer instructions suggest to start by finding the medium tone that’s closest to your natural skin tone. Then mix in the lighter and darker tones until you create your match.


The match I created.


Concealer in Tropea Almond.



At first sight I was unsure about the color.


But once blended in it seemed to match.


Sheer foundation in Madidi Mocha.


I was unsure about all of the colors.


Everything blended in.


The color corrector, concealer and foundation blended nicely. I was surprised! This is the best coverage I have had for my circles in a long time. I applied extra concealer before I left the house and later during the day.

The make-up is a bit oily and I have oily skin so it doesn’t last all day not even a half a day. I must add concealer to keep my dark circles covered and blot during the day.

In the winter when everything is extra dry in New Mexico this make-up may be more beneficial and lasting. The lip gloss is Lea.

Overall, I like the products I purchased and will continue to wear them.
