Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer



Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer Brightener #160

With age, I discovered that my under-eye circles became more and more noticeable, so much so that foundation alone no longer did anything but settle into the creases and bags under my eyes making me appear more tired that I actually was. Now, I'm by no means embarrassed by my age, I embrace being over forty, I just want to look bright & refreshed, yet still wear make-up that made it seem natural and effortless.

I've tried many concealers, sticks and various creams and nothing seemed to look "just right" once applied. Too many are yellow/tan based which do not match my skin tone, which is very fair. I came across Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer while browsing in store and thought it was something different, but I wasn't sure what color would be best for me and if it was really worth buying. I decided to go home and research what this particular branded concealer had to offer.

The first thing I noticed, is a shade you can't find in local stores, #160, the brightener! It's a pink toned illuminator that is supposed to brighten the under eye area. I decided I would indulge myself and bought it, partly because it promises to "visibly diminish the appearance of puffiness around the eyes". It arrived promptly 2 days later and upon opening the box, I looked at the concealer in the package and started to worry that the color would be more foundation-like and perhaps too dark.

I popped open the packaging, unscrewed the lid and gave it quite a few clicks to get the product into the sponge that's built in. I smoothly applied a small amount under each eye and lightly blended it in with a damp beauty sponge, working from the corners of my eyes outward. This concealer was PERFECT for my skin tone and really did brighten my under-eye area. I have since started using it on my lids, down the center of my nose and a light amount on my jawline as a light contour.


BEFORE ANY MAKE-UP
Geesh, I look angry huh?


AFTER APPLYING MAKE-UP
Much better




Now maybe you have a different skin tone, not to fret, Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer, comes in five shades to easily match you perfectly. Amazon has this product available and in-stock for only $6.83, which is below what it sells for in-store.

Pros: Easy to apply formula & applicator, does brighten your eyes up, great as a contour, a little goes a long way.
Cons: I think I may need a tinted neutralizer, just to tone down the blue circles, as you can see in my pic, there is a tiny hint of hue.
