I am back with a review on the most raved about concealer by Maybelline. I have heard quite a few positive (and negative) reviews on this concealer so I was excited to try this out myself.
I picked this up in the shade nude from boots for £7 (they have a 3 for 2 mix and match deal at the moment so go check it out!). There was a lighter shade but from previous experience I didn’t want it to look too obvious or “highlighted” against my skin so I went for the nude. For some reason this product is not on the boots website but they do sell them in boots.
I absolutely love this concealer so much! The consistency, texture and colour is just perfect for my combination skin. Although it doesn’t hide my dark circles completely I think it does a pretty good job. Using a colour corrector before applying the concealer should fix this though, I am still on a hunt for a good one (watch this space!)
I apply this under my eyes in an upside down triangle so it highlights the highest points of my cheekbones. By applying the concealer in this way, it helps blend into your foundation better and gives you a flawless finish. I start with my beauty blender to work this into the skin. If your beauty blender is too wet it can take the concealer away rather then work it in so be careful. I finish with my Real Techniques buffing brush, gently dabbing the rest of the product in. You can also use your fingers to do this.
The only downfall to this product is how messy it gets! I love the packaging and the applicator but you waste so much of the product, without even meaning to. The concealer gets all over the lid when you close it so you have to clean it every time you use it!
Since using this concealer I literally can’t do my make up without it! When I don’t have this on I can definitely tell the difference.
Have you tried this concealer? Let me know what you think, I would love to hear your views or recommendations!
