so i purchased the maybelline fit me foundation (thats a different story) and thought i might as well purchase the concealer as well. I have the foundation in shade 220, and the maybelline website suggested that shade 20 of the concealer would match that shade of foundation. It was a perfect colour match!
But anywhoo long story short, this concealer is not one to be worn alone. I was in a rush once and decided to put my concealer on after my regular moisturising routine. By the end of the day it had dried out and looked horrid, even though my skin is quite oily:( so you either need to wear it with the foundation which stops it from drying as its dewy, or a heavy moisturiser.
This stuff works wonders for my under eyes but not so good on red annoying pimples. It can easily look cakey when you try to build it up. the coverage is too light for me. i wont be buying again as ive heard great things about the collection lasting perfection concealer:D
My first liquid concealer!
It couldn't really conceal the major red angry pimples. But it could be cakey if you use too much, but it's quite hard to not cake it because the coverage is quite low for a concealer so I had to build up the coverage.
The packaging is great!
Possibly I wouldn't buy this again and I would go and try the green coverstick. (:
I keep 2 in my purse at all times. It does not clog pore or cause breakouts. The ingredient list fairly short in comparison to MAC and other higher end brands which I love. Coverage is buildable and very lightweight. Another bonus is it does NOT oxidize on me! I dont use applicator on face I warm on back of hands and apply with fingers or sponge. I love the finish its not super matte very natural. highly recommend
I use this concealer to conceal acne scars and blemishes but I don't use this under my eyes since I don't have dark under eye circles but when I put it under my eyes it tends to sink in fine lines. Overall I like this concealer and will continue to buy.
This was my first ever concealer so I can't really compare to others, but everyone was raving about it so I gave it a go and I wasn't disappointed. It's very creamy and blends very well. I got it in shade 25 medium which was perfect shade for me when I was tan. i don't wear makeup everyday, because I take forever to put on minimal make up so this concealer was god sent. The most common problem I have with foundations is I almost always end up buying right shade but wrong tone for my skin, I have more yellow undertones than pink undertones so I was very pleased when I first swatched it and found out that it had yellow undertone. I wore it pretty much every day with some lip balm for my everyday uni makeup look lol. It did't crease too much under my eyes and blended beautifully on the rest of my face, which was great because I could spot conceal and not look really weird.
Overall great product.
When I am short on time I use this for my eyelid and under eye and blend with my fingers. Instant brightness and does not settle in my fine lines. I also use this to conceal my sheeks cause I have redness. I use NW20 mac prolong concealer and the perfect shade for me is number 20 sand sable.
I purchased this in the shade 15 Fair. It covers my dark under eye circles fairly well- I havenít found any concealer that can disguise them completely!! It has a nice, thin consistency and blends easily. It also has pretty good staying power. However, I found it creases too easily, even when I set it with a powder. My Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer does the same job for around the same price as this one and does not crease when I set it. I wonít be purchasing this again.
As for the packaging- I havenít had any problems with it leaking as others on this site have. I even traveled with it onboard a plane and no issues!
OILY GIRLS!!! this didn't crease as much on my super oily skin. I've been using it under my foundation, applied with a beauty blender or my fingers and I love the results. Although I wish it had more pigmentation, for the price I can't complaint. I then apply the Maybelline Lumi concealer on top and its the best combo I've came across. (FYI My foundation is Estee Lauder double wear).
Just got it today and it covers my under eye circles pretty well. It can also cover spots that I have, so I'd definitely recommend this concealer to try out! I'm Asian and have yellow undertones, so I use #20 in Sand.
I do like this product a lot but the packaging is very messy. As you continue to close the tube product begins to leak and gets all over the place. I've had it for almost a year and use it everyday under my eyes and on blemishes. It is very lightweight, blends in easily, has good coverage, and doesn't wear off or crease on my under eye area, it does crease on my eyelids even if I set it with powder. The two main cons of this product are the packaging and the shade range.
