Everyday Favourite Part IV – Concealer

Let’s be honest. We all have those nights, that are way too short to catch some good hours of sleep. Wether we partied too much, worked too much, it’s been to hot or to cold, the mailman woke you or whatever kept you from your much needed beauty sleep. Well, it’s noticeable, especially in your under eye area. And that’s something we do not want, so we need some magical things to make them disappear, as quickly as possible.

And I have a special little treat, to look more awake and fresh. And the best thing about it, it’s absolutely affordable.

May I present to you the Maybelline Instant Anti-AgeΒ Rewind?! I am so in love with this cutie. But why?

Well, first of all, it’s a drug store product and therefore it just costs around 9 €/ 8$. Of course, the price depends on where you’re getting it from. But the good thing is, you can get it almost everywhere – you’ll never run out of it… except they’ll stop producing it, but let’s hope that’s never gonna happen.

I mentioned, it’s a drug store product, so keep that in mind, while rating this product.

I myself love the consistency of this concealer. It’s a medium coverage concealer, with a creamy, but not too creamy texture. You can blend it easily and it feels pretty light on the skin. It does not dry out my skin, which is a highly sensitive point for me, as you may remember from previous posts πŸ˜‰ I myself do not set it, and it works just great. It tends to sink in the fine lines under my eyes, but just if I don’t blend it properly. I use the shade 01 Fair.

But the thing with the shades is a pretty tricky one. In most drugstores you can choose between 01 Fair and 02 Light. But originally there are 6Β Shades to choose from – I’ve never seen more than three, to be honest. I tried to order from the Maybelline site (the German one, since I live in Germany), but there you can pick only from the two shades mentioned before.

In the little plastic tubes with the little puff on top to apply the concealer, all the shades look pretty dark, somehow yellowish, except for the Brightener, but this one I’ve never seen live. Once applied to your skin, the shades will surprise. They aren’t as dark as they appear in the packaging. You can use the puff to apply the concealer and to blend it, you can remove the puff and apply the concealer only with a brush (this will waste less product) or you can apply the concealer with the puff and blend it with a beautyblender – which is my favorite way to apply it… the beautyblender is my holy grail, but that’s a different thing πŸ˜€

Another thing I love about this concealer is, that it has no weird smell to it, like other concealers – the UD Naked Skin for example, had one of the worst smells ever. This one smells pretty neutral. And I like that the concealer does not cake and does not need a touchup throughout the day. So that’s a clear recommendation from me! Try it out, fall in love!

For a drugstore product it’s absolutely amazing!!!
