Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer

Ive always been on the lookout for a good concealer. I'm using MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC30 (which is my HG), Skinfood Rice Concealer 21, and The Body Shop Lightening Touch 03. I rarely use my Fanny Serrano Concealer in Sand as it has poor staying power for me. Anyway, I came across this Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer on eBay. I decided to check out MUA for reviews. They're quite okay and so I clicked on the Buy It Now Button. I received it earlier and I got an eyeliner as a freebie.

I included on the picture the pink retractable lip brush I got yesterday for PHP60 bucks

I got this in Fair because there's no other shade available though I was lemming for the Yellow one. Applied a little on my under eyes. I only need very little amount for each under eye. It looked a little off at first but it blended well with my skin after a few minutes. I had to blend and pat a little faster because the consitency ain't that smooth and thick and creamy and it might dry out fast. It smells kinda weird and funny but it's tolerable.

The tube contains 11ml of product and I have a feeling it'll take me just a month or two to finish this product if I use it often. I like that you can control the amount of product that comes out when you squeeze it because of how the tube is designed so there's a little chance for you to waste the product.


At the back of the carton, it says:

under eye concealer
-formulated with caffeine and silk, this formula instantly visibly lifts under eye area
-radiance pearls visibly help conceal dark circles and brighten tired eues
-hypoallergenic, won't clog pores, dermatologically tested

I tried it at the back of my hand as well. It blended well with my skin there and sort of brightened the spot where I blended the concealer on.


I dunno if you can see the difference but I am able to see it. Must be the poor quality of the pictures. Sorry. ^_^

Pros:
-really did brighten my under eyes and sorft of made them look less puffy
-small packaging and can easily fit in your make up bag
-you only need a miniscule amout for each eye
-blends easily
-I only got it for PHP130 bucks which isn't bad

Cons:
-not sure if locally available
-contains 11ml according to the label but I doubt if there's really 11ml of product inside the tube
-kinda runny, not so creamy

I like it but I don't think it's a good substitute for my HG concealer. But I like the brightening effect and what it did to the puffing so I'll buy it again if I see another one. It's hard to find so I'm not sure if I can find another.
