|L-R Nude, Light|
The summer is undoubtedly one of my favourite seasons and like most, my skin becomes much clearer. A touch of concealer, a dusting of loose powder (t-zone) and a generous swirl of bronzer is as complicated as my base gets. Before I jetted off on holiday, my Mum bought me the Maybelline Eraser Concealer as she had been using it for a few weeks, and was raving about it. I packed it in my make up bag alongside my holy grail Collection Concealer, as a precaution in case I didn’t get along with it!
My first impression was a little apprehensive as I struggled to click-release the fluid into the sponge applicator. After approximately 20 twists (or more!), the sponge filled with concealer and I applied it directly under my eyes. I used the tip of my Real Techniques Complexion Sponge to press the product into the skin and set it with loose powder. The colour ‘light’ suits my pale skin perfectly, but also works well with a (fake) tan to highlight and lift dark areas. Throughout the course of the holiday, I continued to use it under my eyes, and on several pesky ‘sun cream blemishes’- simply apply product to the back of your hand and cover blemishes using clean hands to avoid spreading bacteria. Its micro-corrector applicator allows for smooth, even coverage and its active formula of Haloxyl reduces the look of puffiness and fades the appearance of dark circles.
I have continued to use this concealer daily since returning to the UK, and have just repurchased another two in the shades Light and Nude. I am in love with their colour (great for pale skins), formula, coverage and overall natural look. I apply following my Origins GinZing Moisturiser and haven’t found it to leave my skin feeling dry or cakey. In addition, after doing a little research online, I have read that they do a similar formula (and packaging) in foundation-form, and I am eager to try it out as we approach the cooler months!
