Maybelline Anti-Age The Eraser Concealer | Review & Swatches

Sunday, 18 January 2015




Hello Beauties! I hope you've all had a great weekend and are enjoying a relaxing Sunday! I'm supposed to be revising for my final year exams at the moment, but instead I've ordered some cute workout wear to get me motivated to hit the gym more (and to stop my leggings falling down while I run!) and some wooden tiles to use as blog post backgrounds which I'm really excited about! I got the idea for this from the lovely Laura from Love & Liquor who posted about blog photo backgrounds today. Recently, my trusty Maybelline Fit Me concealer ran out but instead of repurchasing it again, I decided to look around and see what else I could find as I wasn't completely happy about the Fit Me Concealer (it was a little too dark and oxidised on my skin). 

I'd been hearing a lot about the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer from some of my favourite bloggers, so I thought I'd give it a go as their 'light' shade looked like a good match for my skin - I know it doesn't look like it on camera, but it really does match my foundation and under eye area perfectly! 

The concealer comes in a plastic tube, but instead of the normal doe foot applicator or similar, it has a furry/sponge-like dabber on the end (I had no idea what to call this, clearly haha). I'm not sure how hygienic this is, especially if you apply this to blemishes, but apart from that fact, I really like this applicator. It makes applying the concealer under my eyes really easy. It allows you to cover large areas quickly, or to be really precise and dab it onto a blemish without smudging concealer all over your face. 

The formula of this concealer was what really won me over though. It's a really lovely, creamy formula which blends into your skin effortlessly and the slight yellow tone in the concealer really helps to brighten my under eye area. I apply this in an upside-down triangular shape under my eye and blend out to create a more highlighted effect, which I find really helps to brighten up my complexion on those early winter mornings. 

I'm also really impressed with the coverage of this concealer. It's not a particularly thick concealer and feels weightless on the skin, so I was expecting minimal coverage, but this concealer easily covers my dark circles (it's not an easy task - trust me!) and any blemishes while remaining pretty undetectable on top of my foundation. 

If you're looking for a new concealer, I really recommend you take a look at this one. It's a great all round concealer which I think would work on all skin types. The shade range isn't huge, which is usually the case for drugstore concealers unfortunately, however for £7.99 I don't have any complaints and this product is fast reaching holy grail level for me. 

Lots of Love,

Becky x x

  1. I was always dubious of this and the matching foundation, because of the sponge-tip applicator. But, it seems everyone loves it and I've only read positive reviews. My holy-grail is the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, so this would make a great, much cheaper alternative! I'll definitely pick this up when I'm next in Boots :)

  2. Ah this concealer is amazing! I just wish it came in paler shades as it is a little too yellow for me. In the summer it would be perfect though! The little sponge makes me too happy :')

  6. This looks amazing! I've spent so many years and so many hours trying to find a concealer that covers my extremely dark undereye circles, and I was loving the Fit Me concealer, but I shall definitely have to purchase and try this one when my concealer runs out!

  9. I've just started trying this - I think the colour range kind of sucks but otherwise it's good coverage for how light it feels! xx

  10. This is something I tried several months back for the first time - and I LOVED it. It works so well and you're right. The light feeling it has is perfect for the under eye area.

  11. This is definitely becoming popular at the moment because I've been looking this concealer for like 3 weeks, and they're out of almost all the shades! I may have to resort to ordering it online because I really want to try it!

  12. Ah I have wanted to try this for the longest time but I'm seriously pale and the shade Light is far too dark for me, such a shame! ;(

  14. I use it in the shade Fair and it's the perfect under eye concealer I've been searching forever. I also like the Fit Me concealer from Maybelline but I only use that one for blemishes and redness around my nose.

  15. I love this concealer, and I use it on a daily basis. The only thing is that I wish it had a little more coverage.

  16. I just bought this concealer, also in the shade "Ligh". I'm waiting for it in the mail since it's not sold here in Portugal.
    I've read tons of reviews raving it, so hopefully I'll like it. I'm just trying to give my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer a break since it is ending...

  19. This is the most amazing thing isn't it?! I don't think there's been a day when I haven't worn this since I picked it up a few months ago and I've just made my first repurchase of it because I love it that much

  21. This sounds fab, I've been on the lookout for a highstreet concealer and this sounds perfect :) I like the sound of the sponge applicator, but know what you mean I'd want to keep trying to clean it to be on the safe side haha.

  22. I love the idea of this, but I was worried the novelty of the roller would wear off. But it sounds great!
