“So I decided to produce mine, something that would cover every little unwanted spots on my face, cancel out pigmentation like dark circles, acne, patches etc.
“So while I was in the US to deliver my daughter, I contacted the manufacturers and told them the exact corrector/contour sticks I wanted them to produce, the ingredients, the colors, the design, the liquid amount per stick etc and truthfully when they delivered, I loveeeeed them because it was the exact quality I asked for.
