I have tried many concealers over the years, as it is a must in my daily routine. I always like to apply a concealer/highlighter under the eye area to give light and cover any dark circles or imperfections. I think it really makes a difference and it should be part of everyone’s routine.
In this post I will talk about two products that I really like and that I am using at the moment.
–Instant Anti-Age-Maybelline ($6.64)
Claims to reduce the look of puffiness and under-eye shadows, while fading the appearance of under-eye circles with its Micro-Corrector Applicator that micro-fills and smooths fine lines.
I have not seen so much of the reduction in puffiness but I do like its coverage and the luminosity that it gives when applied. Its sponge tipped applicator has me totally hooked. It makes the application so easy, blending effortlessly, without being heavy. Doesn’t crease if you blend it correctly and it lasts for most of the day. Easy to use for a quick retouch thanks to its sponge. Go for a lighter shade if you want the luminous touch.
Its price is unbeatable, $6.64 in amazon and it goes a long way. I have had mine for over a year now.
–Mineralize Concealer– MAC ($21.00)
I have purchased mine some months ago. Its wonderful reviews made it very attractive so I decided to buy it.
Claims to provide instant and long-term hydration, being a long-wearing (8 hours), non-streaking and non-caking concealer. I do feel like it is a very hydrating long lasting concealer which is what I most like about it. I also like its coverage and luminosity but I do not like its applicator. Its pointed brush makes it easy to apply the product on the face but then the blending becomes messier, than with the Maybelline one, as you would either need to blend it with your finger or a sponge.
As shown above, its price is still good but definitely more expensive than Maybelline’s. Both work very well and are worth trying. If I would have to re-purchase I would probably buy Maybelline’s concealer again.
Some mornings, my eyes look very puffy and tired, so when I apply Maybelline’s concealer, in this case, this is how I look. I love the luminosity and coverage. Go ahead and try it yourself!
How about you? Have you every tried any of these? If so, what do you think?
