Primarily, the engine fueling sales is skin care; exfoliators, cleansers, masques,toners, pore refiners, anti-aging eye and face creams, self-tanners and tinted moisturizers...ya know, the usual. Companies like Menaji and the pricier 4V00, also offer concealers, "shine" powders, brow sculpting pens, guyliners, tinted lip balms and bronzers. Business is booming.
I checked out both websites, and naturally I am intrigued and curious about the differences between "imperfection correctors" created for men and the "imperfection correctors" women have been slapping on for the last 100 years or so. Why do I have a sinking suspicion, that somehow they will be more effective and less expensive??? For the same reason, that a men's V-neck cashmere sweater is $250 and a nearly identical women's version is $600. For the same reason that men's can color their grey hair in 5 minutes flat, and we are tethered to a chair for close to an hour, to achieve the same result.
I don't know girls, it's gotta make you wonder....Is your man double dipping? Are they secretly slipping on a little man-tan and concealer, when we are not looking...and if so, is that a bad thing??? I think so!...go buy your own.
