Kandi Burruss Launches Kandi Koated Luxury Cosmetics Collection #IAMKANDIKOATED

Kandi Burruss—entrepreneur, Grammy Award-winning songwriter, and star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta—has expanded her empire with the launch of Kandi Koated, an empowering collection of luxury cosmetics celebrating diversity and inclusivity across all identities and skin tones. Burruss designed the line for those seeking to express their authentic selves—individuals who know they’re worth and want to look and feel confident on their own terms.

The Kandi Koated collection emerged from Burruss’ desire to see more inclusivity in the world of beauty. The selected ingredients, pigments, and palettes reflect the very diverse community that both inspire and have been inspired by Burruss for more than two decades.

“People come from all walks of life,” Burruss said. “They are not only a rainbow of shades, hues, and colors but also identities. The collection’s color palette ranges from deep espresso and bright, bold reds and purples, to brilliant metallics and buttery nudes. This allows anyone to experiment and celebrate their beauty in the ways that work best for them.”

Kandi Koated includes concealers, illuminators, blushes, bronzing powders, lip products, lip, and eye pencils, and eye shadow and liquid palettes in colors for casual daytime wear and knockout evening looks. The collection’s Pretty Powerful line will feature Authentic, a special, limited edition matte lipstick featuring a bold red color that serves as a reminder of the wearer’s strength, authenticity, beauty, and power.

“Kandi Koated is more than a cosmetics line. It is a celebration of beauty, individuality, and diversity in a world where acceptance should be more than a goal. It should be our reality,” added Burruss. “I can’t wait to share this collection and its message of empowerment with people across the country and around the world.”

Kandi Koated cosmetics are cruelty-free with paraben-free, gluten-free, and vegan options available. To learn more and to purchase products in the collection, visit KandiKoated.com or host a Kandi Koated party with a Bedroom Kandi Boutique Parties consultant.

Remove Dark Circles and Blemishes – Concealer

Concealer is a necessary beauty product that everyone should own in their makeup arsenal.  It refreshes the eyes while removing dark under-eye circles.

Corrective Makeup (also known as Concealer) serves an aid to give the appearance of even skin.  Have you ever noticed a blemish and needed to attend a meeting the next day?  If purchased in the right shade, this particular product will eliminate the issue.

A few additional tricks one could use with concealer application includes applying on the eyelids to eliminate shadow flacking; sponge on the bra area for décolletage definition, dab a small amount to the brow bone for highlighting the arch; and shape the lips with a small brush.

One of the most important tips when purchasing a new concealer is selecting the correct shade. It’s a tedious task and if you’re not a makeup enthusiast, please visit the local counter for assistance. Additional suggestions include –

  1. Use a shade that’s lighter than your natural skin complexion. This is very important when eliminating blemishes or dark spots.
  2. For brown girls, purchase a concealer in the shade of your undertone (either yellow or orange.)  For example, I have red undertones and wear an orange concealer underneath my eyes.
  3. BUT – for dark circles, go one shade darker than your normal concealer color.
  4. ALWAYS apply moisturizer, foundation, and then concealer!  Do not skip this step because your face could potentially break out or look chalky.

In my opinion, I encourage makeup enthusiasts to use a brush or beauty blender sponge for concealer application.  The brush will maneuver inside of the eye crease and Beauty Blender gives a flawless look.  Also, let me know (here) what are your favorite concealer brands!




Brighten, contour, and rejuvenate skin every time you apply your makeup with skin renewing concealer. Created by Jo Mousselli, Co-Founder of the acclaimed eyelash extension company, Xtreme Lashes, the concealer is formulated to hydrate, protect, and soothe skin while offering long-wearing medium coverage. With continued use, skin appears visibly smoother, plumper, brighter, firmer, and more hydrated.   This Skin Renewing Concealer is available in four fabulous shades: Fair, Neutral, Beige (New) and Mocha (New).


Skin Renewing™ Concealer targets visible aging via a three-pronged approach:


·        Corrective Prevention: Halt aging deep within the skin with Carnosine (an encapsulated dipeptide), Vitamin E, and Milk Thistle Fruit Extract. Delivered via a liposomal complex, the trio of nutrients fights signs of aging by reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, revitalizing skin, increasing elasticity, and preventing the stiffening and breakdown of skin’s natural collagen.

·        Hydration & Anti-Inflammation: A blend of Australian Myrtle Oil and Bisabolol, a derivative of German Chamomile, offers deep hydration and inhibits inflammation, preventing redness. Its natural antimicrobial properties help soothe redness and heal blemishes.

·        Youthful Radiance: Perfect for the under-eye area, the concealer also helps counteract the look of dark shadows, lines and wrinkles, and enlarged pores. Light-diffusing pigments help even skin tone, giving your skin a flawless finish. The waterproof formula is also long-wear, ensuring your skin stays vibrant all day.

WHAT THEY COST: $36 each
