Concealer Review: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment

Friday, November 23, 2012


Hi everyone! As promised, I am kicking off my concealer review posts. Everyone wants to find that elusive undereye concealer that does everything - reduce the appearance of puffy eyes, disguise dark circles, and brighten the eye area.

One concealer that I have found to be pretty amazing is this Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment. I'm going to make this review simple and to-the-point, so you get the exact information that you need without having to waste any time.

Pros:
Lightweight - does not cake under the eyes, and does not sink into the lines under the eyes.
Brightening - both the Brightening and the Light shades brighten the eyes instantly and make me look younger and awake! 60 Brightening can be layered underneath your regular concealer to lift and correct dark circles.
Affordable - for such an effective product, this is so affordable. Plus, it is on sale at Priceline now - 20% off!
Haloxyl - This ingredient helps to absorb and get rid of coloured blood pigments (these cause dark circles).
Pigment - very little product covers up dark circles very well.
Easy to apply - I don't need any brushes to apply this - I just put it straight onto my skin from the tube, and then pat it out with my ring finger.

Here are some swatches of the product on my skin to show you how it works.

My skin, without any foundation or undereye concealer.

Concealer (20 Light) on my left eye. No concealer on my right eye, to show you the difference. Still no foundation.

(20 Light) on my left eye, and (60 Brightener) on my right eye. As you might be able to tell from the picture, 60 is much pinker than the 20, which is more yellow-toned. Again, not wearing any foundation.

Swatches in natural light.

Cons:
I haven't tested this on very, very dark circles.
Sponge applicator - although I do find the sponge tip applicator very useful as it spreads the product out pretty evenly without me having to use a brush, it seems a little unhygienic.

The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment retails at AUD 18.95 (before discount) per 6mL tube.
