Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer Review

As many of the people who read this now know that I buy things that I see other people using. Such as when I see a YouTuber using something, even though I know they are probably getting some dollar in their pocket for endorsing it and saying it is the best thing since sliced bread, I go and buy it.

This product I bought as a result of numerous Carli Bybel videos. I am obviously talking about the Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser. I was at college one day doing my makeup course and when the lecturer would set us a task to do in the background she would put on YouTube videos. Looking back now I realise that I learnt more from the videos than I ever did the teachers. It was just a cop out so she could sit and read her magazine and we were all occupied!

However, one day she put on a video, I have no idea which one now because it was donkey’s years ago but Carli used this Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer. She made it look so easy to use and the product looked really good, and to me and the rest of the girls in my class it really did seem like she liked the product.

So, we all wondered out on our lunch to the local Boots store and bought one. Then we all went back into class and sat at a workstation, took all out makeup off so we could try this out. I found that this product really divided opinion. Some of us loved it and the others absolutely hated it. I was neither in love with it or hated it, I would say that I was on the fence.

Good things I noticed about this Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer is that it is just so quick and easy to use. Just grab it, twist some product up and swipe it under your eyes. Then blend it in and it’s all done. It is also great for throwing in your handbag, it is a nice small size and it eliminates the need to carry a brush and a concealer.

The finish that it gave once it had been applied and blended in was also lovely and we all agreed. It blended out to be really sheer but still didn’t feel too thick on the skin.

While we were, all huddled around trying this some girls noticed defaults in the packaging. Some of them when people were turning them, no product would come out of the top. No matter how much they turned it, it just wouldn’t work.

Also, some of us, including myself found the product to be quite oily in texture. I have to say that it really didn’t feel great. I definitely had to set it with powder or I would have felt like it would slip all over my face.

For me I have to be honest and say that his wasn’t a winner. If I want an under-eye concealer that isn’t too thick I would just the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, but a low cost alternative would be the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer.
