I have tried so many different types of concealers and when I ran out of my regular concealer I decided to give this one a try, and i hate it! It is really hard to blend onto your skin, I definitely would not recommend this!
Great coverage. Very thick forumula. I used number 2 but its too dark for me. Because where we live they dont sell lighter shades.. Weird.
I had wanted to give the Mineral Power concealer a second try, but I realized Maybelline apparently discontinued the product in the US. I ended up opting for this Super Stay concealer and I've actually been quite impressed.
I used the Medium shade I think it's called, and I'm surprised at the good coverage that this concealer gives. It covers my acne scars and redness pretty well. Although I experience caking sometimes, I believe it's because of drying blemishes and subsequent peeling of scars that attributes to this.
The packaging of this product is fine, your typical sponge tip applicator in a small tube. A lot of product is wasted and builds up around the screw section of the concealer, though, which sucks. Also be sure to occasionally wipe off this buildup, since bacteria can potentially harvest there.
Lastly, it's always bothered me how pink undertoned Maybelline's face make up shade selection has been. My Medium shade is very pink undertoned, but for some reason it blends alright into my skin....but of course under certain lighting, it's a complete nightmare. Oh well, I haven't found anything better, so I'm sticking with this for the time being.
This is my current favorite concealer and I have tried almost everything out there including some high name brands with big price tags. I use the lightest color they make which matches perfectly. It is long lasting just as it claims to be, build-able and blend-able. The coverage could be a little higher but with my spot my goal is not to complete hide because I want to maintain a natural look, so this works fine.
I have this in 3- beige. I really like the concealer. It's very opaque, and it hasn't creased on me. I can use it anywhere on the face, and it covers redness and blemishes well. I like the packaging, although I can imagine the product drying out after a while. There is a lot of product, so I will use it for many months from now on.
Based on reviews I saw on youtube, I decided to give this a go. My previous go to concealers were MAC's concealer in the pot in NW35 or NW40 or Dermablend in Bronze. The downside to Maybelline's line is the limited shade range. I chose the darkest color, #750 in Deep Beige. This color looked too light for me but I figure I would try it anyway because if it didn't work out, I could have always returned it. When I put it on my face, the color was very light but I did notice the coverage was opaque which what I liked. When I used a natural hair brush to blend the concealer it really blended into my skin and the color worked. What was better compared to my usual concealer, was this did not blend out or push the concealer around. When I blended my other concealers, the more I blended, the more sheer the coverage was. This had the opposite effect. It worked with my skintone, covered up blemishes and best of all, no transfer and the edges blended seamlessly. The coverage lasted until I removed it -- which is usually a full work day and travel time so about 12 hours. It does dry fast, so I suggest working in smaller areas. The applicator is doe foot lipglass type applicator, since I use a brush to apply, I don't have an issue with the applicator. The amount of product for the price is definitely pricey, so I recommend purchasing this on sale. And the biggest downside is the color selection. Very poor especially because I can imagine this will not suit a multitude of skin tones. Nonetheless, it works for me, so I will continue to buy it for the opaque & budge proof coverage.
EDITED TO ADD: I absolutely ADORE the coverage but this does not photograph well on my skin. It looks great in person but in pics, it definitely reflects light. Please make this in darker colors Maybelline.
Overall this is a good concealer. It's pretty opaque and it covers well. I would consider this to be a better concealer than most ds brands. It does settle in lines somewhat under the eyes, but all concealers do that on me.
It's too thick, and it provides full coverage
In summary, no creasing, no touch ups, very good price, and well worth a try. I have fair skin and use Ivory which blends seamlessly with my light or medium foundations. I use this as an under eye concealer and it really does last all day without creasing. If there's a downside to this product, it's that I have to make certain I moisturize, use primer or a dewy foundation right before application or it seems to stick too fast. So, I use only very small amounts and blend lightly and quickly. Even with heavy moisturizing, this is a one of the rare products that lasts all day and into the evening without touch ups.
i love this concealer... i used to use the mouse concealer and when they discontinued it took me ages to find a decent concealer again, until i found this!! i love it!! it works for me
