Review of Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer


I am probably reviewing this product real quick. I mean I've had only about 10 days to use and test it but after using it for 10 days everyday, I think I am ready to give my views about it and to tell you all if I liked this product or not.
So lets get going :)


The issue for me with buying drugstore base makeup from abroad especially from the West is that it is very difficult (not impossible though) to get foundations and concealers that have a yellow undertone and the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles concealer is yet another of those pink toned concealers... I love the texture, the staying power and the medium coverage that it provides but I so wish it came in yellow-y shades as well...










Price of Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer

It costs USD 7.50, INR 450 approx

The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer comes in a transparent, plastic tube with a sponge-bob head that is actually the applicator. It is soft, not harsh to the skin and pretty novel. The texture of the concealer ispretty thin but not runny and it blends very easily... Honestly? Apart from the pink undertone I love the thing :)




As far as the concealing properties go, it gives a decent coverage. And because it has a pink undertone I use it as an under-eye highlighter as well... So basically it works both ways for me, concealing as well as highlighting.


One con that I see in this is that it seems to settle into my fine lines after a couple of hours and so I need to set it with powder around mid-day.
Another is the sponge applicator that looks a little unhygienic to me, though the packaging says that it uses some anti-microbial technology that keeps germs away but it kinda sounds a little vague to me.

I have used the product for a week now and apart from the two issues that I pointed out, I am pretty happy with it. It hasn't broken me out yet, doesn't look unnatural on me and well I kinda enjoy applying it every morning ;)

Availability
The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer is not available in India as yet. I got mine from the US (Target to be precise).

  1. Maybe completely irrelevant but i found castor oil and aloe vera gel doing wonders for my dark circles and fine lines. I do sit on computer for thw whole day almost. had really bad circles and lines. BUT only two days of using it. ITS a miracle
