To be honest, I have a lot of back log. There are some photos which were taken a year ago and I haven’t written about them! I am the laziest procrastinator ever. This Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser has been in my stash for more than 6 months. There were 2, a Neutralizer and Fair, and today, I will show you Fair.
The packaging can be much better and I am really not a big fan of the sponge applicator. I twist and twist and twist and twist and twist (you get the idea) before any product came out. Once the sponge is stained, there really isn’t any way to clean it. So, I make sure I keep it clean(er) by exposing it less. Instead of applying it directly onto my dark circles, I put some product at the back of my hand before applying with a brush. Yes, I know. I am anal. I’m like that. Get over it 😛
The concealer itself is a dream to apply. It is light and blends superbly to the skin. Rather than sitting on lines, it blurs out some fine lines which is great news for me. The shade Fair covers my dark circles quite well, but I still prefer Neutralizer which is more yellow toned. Unfortunately, I broke it. I twisted a little too hard, a little too fast and it broke. There was no way to fix it. The only way to save the product was to transfer it to a little pot, but I had none 🙁 I didn’t want to transfer the following morning because all sorts of germs would have had their fair share of bath time in the product the whole night. Eeps!
Photo above is unedited save cropping and adding text. Picture on the left: completely bare face. Picture on the right: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser only. No foundation or powder. This is just to show you how well it covers my dark circles. I usually use it on top of foundation, and it covers even better. It looks a little pink here, but on top of foundation, it turns out a little brighter without pink undertones.
Have you tried this? I wish they would change the packaging to something more hygienic. The product itself is awesome for the price. This product is not available in Malaysia yet, but if you can get your hands on it and if you can get over the packaging, do try. Are you using any under eye concealers? What’s good?
