A number of years ago you discontinued my holy grail of concealers - the Revlon ColorStay Concealer ($11.95) to be exact - which caused a serious problem in my life.
You see as a pale person, it's hard to find a decent concealer. Most of them come in 3 shades: light, medium and dark which actually translates to: pink, too dark for me and way too dark for me - I searched a long time to finally find your concealer and we spent many happy years together. I hope you can appreciate that having it so carelessly ripped away from me was agonizingly painful. I spent many a night planning revenge fantasies against you in my head and many a day haunting Revlon warehouse sales and stalking ebay for them.
Eventually the re-sale well ran dry and I was back to wandering aimlessly, while searching once again for the perfect concealer. I thought this would be how I would end my days, as a little old lady, shuffling through the aisles of Shoppers Drug Mart crying pitifully for a decent concealer to cover my goiter until one day when I was at my local SDM then what to my wondering eyes should appear but a pre-pack display with a beloved old friend! You're advertising it as "new" but you can't fool me - that's MY concealer - the one I've been blowing out birthday candles, throwing pennies in bodies of waters and breaking wishbones for!
Thank you for keeping my Light shade (but pale people who like pink should go with the Fair and those other people with actual skin colour can choose between Light Medium, Medium and Medium Deep) and a big thank you for the wonderful texture which still feels light put perfectly covers up my dark circles and imperfections!
It's back and I'm thrilled - so happy in fact I might not even ask you why it is in all the years that it's been gone that you still haven't learned how to spell "Colour" properly...
Do not discontinue my ColorStay Concealer again or I will cut you.
