I’ve been paranoid about my under eye circles ever since an aunt of mine pointed them out when I was sixteen and told me, “They’ll never go away. They’ll just get darker the older you get.” This was kind of her to point out since every sixteen year old needs more insecurity in her life. Anyway, this started me on a quest to prove her wrong and I’ve invested in countless eye creams and concealers ever since. Recently, I was encouraged to try the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I picked up the shade “Fair” from Target for $7 which is an awesome price.
This is by far one of the best under eye concealers I’ve ever used. It’s creamy and kind of dry which helps it to cover well and stay in place. It doesn’t sink into any lines underneath my eyes, and I don’t even need to use a setting powder with it (although, to be fair, I rarely need a setting powder under my eye). The coverage of this concealer is phenomenal and it is so incredibly easy to blend. You can blend it just as easily with your fingers as you can a beauty blender because of its texture.
My friend Katie mentioned that she uses this concealer on acne and other parts of her face as well, so I tried to give it a shot there too. It was still great! It covered even my peskiest zits and lasted for a fairly long time. I did find that applying it on parts of my face other than under my eye worked better with the beauty blender. I did need a setting powder over my acne bits, but that’s pretty normal for me.
Overall, I was blown away by this concealer. Not to sound like a snob, but I don’t try drugstore makeup on my face very often. This has definitely inspired me to try more though because I was just so impressed. I’ll definitely be repurchasing this over and over again, and I recommend this to anyone who wants something inexpensive but high coverage for their under eyes.
So, since I’m going to try more drugstore makeup, what do you think I should try? Please, leave your suggestions in the comment section!
