Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer Review
Thursday, 22 January 2015
A few months ago i decided to try a new concealer. Being a pregnant mum to a toddler can be very tiring and this shows in the shape of those lovely dark circles under the eyes. When i first bought this i fell in love straight away. The eraser is targeted at more mature skin to help cover fine lines and dark circles however it seems to be a huge hit with the younger beauty fan. I don't have fine lines yet but after seeing beauty gurus raving about it i thought i would give it a go.
The packaging is one of a kind, with a small thin tube and a sponge applicator at the end. To release the product you need to twist the top and eventually the product comes out of top. I like how the sponge applicator applies the product, it really does glide onto the skin. The twist feature means that there isn't any product left in the bottom like a standard lip gloss type tube. The consistency is really light and a liquid formula which blends like a dream and it doesn't sink into any lines or pores. I use this under my eyes and around my nose where i have alot of pores and concealers tend to gather in the dry patches however this one doesn't.
My boots only seem to have three colours from the 5 available, fair medium and dark. I buy fair as its the lightest in i can get however i think i need the neutraliser or brightener as it is still a little dark for my skin.I have found the best way to use this product is under my foundation, it really does cover the dark circles and makes my skin look smoother and more awake, i can even get away with wearing this on its own with a powder. The concealer is £7.99 from boots and to be honest you don't get much product for that. Alot of product can be wasted in the sponge and also if you loose the top like i did it does dry up very quickly so i would advise holding on to that top!
Overall i would have to say this is the best concealer i have tried from the 'drugstore' it beats the collection one we all love hands down and is a must for us tired mums!
