Maybelline Fit me Concealer Review

Hey all,

A few days ago, i went on a drugstore hunt looking to replace the concealer i was using as it was running out. Lucky me, i went to Boots on the same day they had their big sale and most Maybelline products were on sale. As you may or may not know, Maybelline is one of my favourite drug store brand, so i bought a few items. One of the item is the Maybelline Fit me Concealer.

If you remember from a few posts back, when Maybelline first released their new Fit me foundation, I wrote a review on that. (You can check that out here) As i have already tried the Fit me foundation and liked it, i thought to myself, why not try the Concealer as well?

ImageSo this is what the packaging looks like. It is very similar the to Fit me foundation bottles. Simple and easy to caring around with.

ImageI got the concealer in shade 15, which is one of the lightest shades they had.

There was a good range of shades from dark to light, which i think will suit most peoples skin tones. There was even a guide on buying the right concealer right next to these products, which can be really helpful when youre not as good at picking out shades or just unsure of which shade will suite you.

ImageAs per normal concealers, it comes with a brush/applicator. The applicator scoops up a good amount of concealer. However sometimes it may be too much. I also find that with these applicators, they dont reach the bottom of the tube, so when there is little product left, its hard to scrape out the tiny bit thats left on the bottom. It annoys me when the brush doesnt reach the bottom and i have no other ways to get it out, and its a waste to throw it away while there is still some product left in the tube.

This concealer is very blendable and does not feel cakey or heavy. It has a light to medium coverage, so i tend to build it up more if i need it. However, sometimes i feel that this concealer is a little too watery for my liking. So to deal with that, i prime my face, then il let it sit on my under eye area for a few seconds before blending it out and applying foundation. I find that applying it this way helps with getting more coverage. It is a little time consuming though, but i just take that time to do other stuff, like reading other blogs or updating my tumblr.

Will i buy it again?

Yes, since im currently using the Fit me foundation, i think this concealer is a perfect match for it. I also like the range of shade they have in store and will definitely be buying some of their other shades for blending etc.

Hope you have found this review useful!

Maybelline NEW Fit Me Foundation

Hey darlings,

Sorry for the lack of posts, ive been busy with assignments and studying for tests. So im back with a new liquid foundation review. I was sent this foundation by Maybelline a few days ago and I’ve been looking forward to trying it as Maybelline has always been my favourite makeup brand. So i hope you find this review useful.

As mentioned above, the foundation reviewed in this post is :

PRODUCT DETAILS

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

The secret of Fit Me Foundation? Some waxes and fillers can mask your skin colour, Fit Me Foundation has none. Its transluscent gel based formula merges seamlessly with your skin.
Fit Me Foundation, Concealer and Powder are made to fit together by shade numbers, so finding your shade couldn’t be easier. Looks natural, feels so light. SPF 18.
According to the website, this foundation is meant to unify the skin tone while hiding imperfections and giving you a natural, non-cakey look. So, does this foundation does what its advertised to do?
This foundation was really easy to apply and gives the skin a dewy, natural look. However, I personally think this foundation is a little too liquid, thus giving my face a not as matt as i like look.
The coverage for this foundation is medium, again this gives you a more natural look. However more coverage can be built up when applying more foundation to areas that you want more coverage. This foundation blends well into the skin and is very long wearing. It also has a great color range, so it will suite whatever skin color. At £7.99, this foundation is affordable and good for daily wear.
Would i buy this foundation again?  Maybe. I personally prefer a more matt finish foundation, however if you like a satiny finish this is the foundation for you.
I hope youve found this review useful :)
Have a good week and i shall be posting reviews every monday, so see you next monday!
Love, Nicole xx
