Who needs airbrushing? You can bid farewell to Photoshop if you try Veil Cosmetics’ debut product, Illuminating Complexion Fix ($36).

A modern shortcut to beautiful skin, Illuminating Complexion Fix is a concealer treatment for the face and eyes, with a svelte dispensing mechanism similar to Yves Saint Laurent’s magical cult classic Touche Eclat. Thanks to their proprietary Lightfast Technology, Illuminating Complexion Fix promises mighty benefits–increased luminosity and moisture, calms irritation, targets dark spot production, functions as a featherweight concealer, evens out skin tone, hides blemishes and counteracts dullness.

Lofty promises? Maybe. But the results are pretty dramatic.

The fact is that dark circles are a huge beauty dilemma, and you really need more than a dollop of concealer to tackle the problem. You need a concealer that incorporates multiple layers of science. Illuminating Complexion Fix aims to solve a lot of problems with one thin layer, which you can build up according to your needs. Lightfast Technology is a proprietary blend of active ingredients that target the production of melanin with ingredients Sephiwhite, Sepicalm and Revidrate. In addition to decreasing dark circles, Lightfast increases moisture in the target area, which is apropos for dryness, lines and aging skin.

Illuminating Complexion Fix is available in 12 shades and provides buildable, water-resistant coverage. In 2013, the line will expand its offerings with a serum and an eye shadow collection.

The Bottom Line: The golden age of dark circle correctors has arrived. Recently Clinique also debuted its Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector, which targets melanin, and it’s good to see that other concealers are starting to identify increased melanin production as a key reason for dark circles.

If your dark circles are severe, you can do double duty by using Lumixyl Revitaleyes Brightening Eye Cream ($65) twice daily to lighten up the pigment under your eyelids, and then apply Veil’s Illuminating Complexion Fix during the day. Revitaleyes contains decapeptide technology that has been clinically proven to target lines, wrinkles, dryness and inflammation that contribute to dark circles – all in one handy little tube.

I love the way the under eye area immediately became radiant after I applied Illuminating Complexion Fix. Finally, a concealer that treats, corrects and delivers buildable coverage! The other aspect of this product which is hands above and beyond the rest is that the concealer offers the choice of neutral, pink or gold undertones in each shade to perfectly match the complexion. This is so important that it makes you wonder why many other concealer brands don’t take this into consideration.

You can choose the concealer that perfectly matches your complexion to give you almost instant results. I also love the Touche Eclat-style pen, which makes it very convenient to apply. For its reasonable price point, the Illuminating Complexion Fix is a no brainer.

Edible, hallucinogenic or poisonous, mushrooms are enjoying first class treatment in beauty these days. Marvin Hausman, M.D., the CEO of Total Nutraceutical Solutions, explains that mushrooms are rich in vitamin D and antioxidants. Shiitake mushrooms, in particular, are known for their ability to reduce inflammation and increase elasticity of the skin, which makes them a key ingredient in numerous products for red blotchy skin. They also help exfoliate and provide an excellent source of kojic acid – a natural skin lightener that helps fade sun spots and heal acne. In addition, ‘shrooms provide an excellent resource for anti-aging and hair products.
