It's been a while since I wrote a proper product review in the blog, which is because I lost the routines for it since I moved home the photo studio. But I'll get better at it! Because I think it's fun and I'm good at it and I know that many of you who read think it's both interesting and useful info! :)
Today I was going to write about the hyped product Maybelline Anti-Age The Eraser Eye Concealer (adlink) which I got a press sample from quite a long time ago and have had time to test it a lot!
What is Maybelline Anti-Age The Eraser Eye Concealer?
The product is a liquid concealer with pillow applicator that promises:
- High coverage
- Easy application
- Durable result that does not get cakey or line up
- Natural and smooth finish
It is designed for dark circles under the eyes, but many people use it for the rest of the face as well.
The formula is thin and yet very opaque, so you do not need much at all, which I like!
You screw in the bottom of the package and there will be concealer up in the pillow. It comes quite sparingly, which I actually like, concealers that are made to dab directly on the skin often give too much color, so then I still use a separate brush, but this one can sort of "apply and fade out" with without needing more tools or fingers.
If you compare with a concealer that is applied with a separate brush, this is not the most hygienic package. But you use lip gloss and other products that are applied directly with an applicator on the skin, so you do not really see the difference.
I like this one! I do not have super dark circles under the eyes as it is for, but think it covers nicely.
I personally use this mostly for quick coverage in the rest of the face. It is absolutely not a product I recommend to cover pimples, but for acne scars and flat almost healed blemishes as well as redness and such irregularities, it is very good.
What I like about it is that it is very easy to distribute over a large area. For example. I who have a lot of traces of old acne on the jawbones, then I can take this on almost the entire jaw part and get full coverage quickly, and on the new pimples I take another concealer over just.
I also like the finish, it is exactly as the product promises, smooth and even on the skin.
If you take a lot of concealer under the eyes, you have to fix with powder to keep it in place. But that's what's good about such opaque products, you do not need a thick layer, and as long as you put a thin and work it into the skin (usually dab a little with your fingertip under the eyes) it stays in place very well .
I use the shade Light and it suits me very well!
Summary - I mainly think that it is good for quick coverage in large areas, such as acne scars and such spots. And be sure to wear the lid so that the pillow stays fresh! However, nothing I recommend for people who need a good concealer to cover new pimples. Under the eyes it also works well, but apply a thin layer! :)
