My Love Affair with Dermablend Professional Quick Fix Concealer and the Chance to Win a $200 e-giftcard from Coupons.com

This is a sponsored post from Coupons.com. While I'm being compensated for this post the love affair I have with Dermablend Professionals is real...   Beauty products come a dime a dozen. Usually when you find the right one and fall in love with it the company discontinues it or somehow changes the formula, you know, to "make it better".
