While sorting through my concealer drawer the other day (I like organising, okay?) I noticed that I’ve collected a whole lot of concealers from Maybelline. I’m not sure what it is and I don’t think I noticed myself doing it but here I am with 5 of the 7 concealers that they offer (I haven’t tried their Coverstick or the Better Skin Concealer). Amongst the bunch there are some favourites and some not so favourites, let’s have a peek.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Concealer in Fair & Brightener – This sponge-y applicator was a little disconcerting at first but it perfectly suits the incredibly light, thin formula of this concealer. I use the two shades that I have under the eyes, making use of that handy inverted triangle trick and love how easily blendable and comfortable they are to wear. Both shades are really brightening but still manage to conceal any discolouration. I can recommend this to anyone, especially those who struggle with creamy concealers getting a little creasey under their eyes.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15 Fair – The shade range of this one is a little tricky, the shade 10 Light is actually darker than 15 Fair, I’ve accidentally picked up Light before only to get it home and realise it was unusable. The product itself is worth it though, this stuff is seriously awesome on spots. Concealers always tend to flake on any spots I have because the skin around them gets so dry but the Fit Me Concealer blends in easily and seamlessly and actually wears well throughout the day. This has been my go-to budget option for concealer lately.
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer in Ivory – This is another brightening kind of concealer, designed for use under the eyes. It’s reminiscent of the YSL Touche Eclat with it’s brush applicator but I can’t say this one does much for me. The shade is fairly yellow so it does a decent effort of cancelling out any blue under the eyes. The formula is really thin and blends out nicely but it doesn’t leave the area looking any brighter and the pigmentation isn’t the greatest. The Instant Age Rewind remains my favourite for under the eyes.
Maybelline Face Studio Master Concealer in 10 Fair – Although it’s unavailable in Aus, I thought it was still worth mentioning the Master Conceal. My experiences with this one have been sort of up and down – some days it works and other days it doesn’t. It’s got a decent whack of coverage to it so it does well on spots but a little goes a long way, things can start looking a little cakey if I’m not careful with application. Still a really awesome one if you need something heavy duty.
Maybelline SuperStay 24Hour Concealer in Ivory – Another creamy one that’s designed for natural looking coverage but one that I can’t quite seem to get along with. For starters, my tube of the stuff has strangely separated so that the top of the tube looks almost red? But when I look past that and get it on the skin it just ends up looking cakey no matter what. It feels heavy on the skin and just looks really there on the skin, drawing more attention to the problem area rather than hiding it. This one’s definitely the miss from the range, for me at least.
The Instant Age Rewind and Fit Me Concealers are my favourites from the bunch – they get almost daily usage, I’d say. Maybelline really bring it when it comes to concealers, they really know what they’re doing. Now I’ll just have to try out some of their foundations…
Have you tried Maybelline concealers? What’s your favourite?
