I love this!! Sponge tip is amazing. 3 stars for applicator because the first one I got didn't turn easily and the plastic part to turn it broke and split. The one I exchanged it for works great though. If it didn't break this would be a 5 star!
I normally don't use concealer because I'm lazy. I just use a dab of foundation under my eyes. Lately, I've had really dark puffy circles because the allergies in my area have been terrible this year!
I tried this concealer because of the good reviews on here. I have been really happy with it since I bought it. I'm not super pale, but I bought the lightest shade that they had (fair).
I used to think of concealers as opaque, thick and pasty. Not this one! It's light and has a nice texture. It blends in easily, and doesn't settle in little lines or creases. It hides my circles a little bit and brightens up my eye area. It stays on nicely all day.
Don't expect miracles, but it does help with the dark circles and makes you look brighter. For less than $10 US, it's a great buy. I will repurchase.
This review is for the color 'Neutralizer'.
My skin tone is neutral to warm (NC/NW 25ish), likely a shade darker in the summer.
I have dark circles and was looking for a product to brighten the under eye area. I came across this product and decided to buy it. This color is a light beige-neutral tone with a hint of yellow.
I always apply eye cream first since I'm quite dry underneath. I let it soak in for a few minutes, apply this product in a triangle shape and blend well. Be careful not to use too much because it will be harder to blend, gunks up.
This color is quite light so I do need to apply a bit of my regular concealer, which is darker, over top. If your quite fair you may get away wearing this on it's own.
Overall I have noticed my eye area does look brighter.
Cons: Can be difficult to blend if you use too much.
Otherwise happy with it and would repurchase. I paid around $9.97 Canadian before taxes.
I'm not usually drugstore girl but I saw so many people talk about this product I thought I would try it. The texture is slightly runny and sponge applicator gave me pause but when it was actually working I thought it was a decent product for the price. However, I've used less then 10% of the actual product and the click-e thing? broke. Now it refuses to dispense anymore product which is a total bummer and waste. Maybelline should improve its packaging. BTW purchased shade 10 which was ok for me. Ref: GA Maestro Concealer 2 was perfect for me~ NC10
I bought this concealer because I heard so much positive reviews about it. I bought the light one and I tried it on. It was hard to blend in to my skin en it looked not good on my skin. My dark circles were highlighted not covered. But the darker one was way too dark for me so the color range is not good and I just don't like the concealer, I really regret buying it.
If you have severe dark circles, I wouldn't recommend this for you. The only way to cover dark circles underneath the eyes is to use a salmon colored concealer, as it will balance out the darkness. This concealer doesn't come in a salmon shade but I did pick it up in light. I am an NC30-35 skin tone with warm undertones and find that this does a great job brightening underneath my eyes. It does cover the dark circles I have, but considering I don't have much dark circles to cover, it does the job. I don't really like the packaging, the sponge applicator is weird for me. I would prefer if it came in a regular tube comparable to a lip gloss tube. The product itself is great and comes out in thin buildable layers. Again, if you have severe dark circles, try a product that is salmon colored instead. I'd suggest the Maybelline Dream Lumi in Radiant.
I bought this for my slightly blue under eye circle, im quite pale so I got the lightest shade and oh my god how can maybelline justify the lightest shade, it is absolutely NEON orange! It's the most ridiculous concealer I've ever used. It is very thin and dry as someone else said. There isn't very much coverage to this, but I do like the applicator although it is unsanitary.
It sits in your lines under your eyes, and is a very matte application which is drying.
This stuff was just not for me. I don't understand the rave reviews. It is a very thin formula and very drying. When dry, it totally made my undereyes look soooooo much worse! It covered the darkness okay, but made me look VERY wrinkly, and I don't have many wrinkles. Yet. I've tried tons of different concealers and would go as far as to say that this was the worst one I've ever tried. Very dry, wrinkly and crepey looking. Not good :-(. I really don't get the hype.
I have really pale skin and this covers my dark circles and brightens under eyes perfectly!! I recommend this to everyone!
All the reviews I have read here say they hate the applicator - so no need to say it again. Good product, at first I didn't like how it blended but when I took a step away from the mirror I was impressed. I have "neutralizer", and have NC 30/35 tone skin. Good lasting power: held up in the hot hot sun (:
