Will we ever see a concealer appear in my Holy Grail list? I highly doubt it. There are some good ones out there but each and every one I've tried has always had at least one fault: too thick, too thin, too drying, too creamy, creases, doesn't last longer than an hour. I could go on but I'm sure you all have the same problems when it comes too concealer and are well aware of how much of a pain in the jaxy they can be.
I very rarely find myself at the Maybelline stand in Boots but after making a mental note to try this concealer I made a beeline for it. I went for the shade Light which I think is the lightest shade (it was the lightest colour on the stand) as I'm a gorgeous shade of ghost and as you can see from the swatch, it's still darker than my natural skin tone and very yellow but once blended in it's fine. If you're lighter than me you might struggle to make this work but it's not bad at all, definitely worth trying if you think you can get away with it.
Maybelline The Eraser Perfect & Cover Concealer has one of those applicators that instantly give me the creeps! I don't even know what it's called. It's not sponge, feels fluffy and soft like a doe foot lip gloss applicator but lets just call it a sponge for the sake of this post. Maybelline claim that the sponge keeps itself clean with some antibacterial hooha but I can't help but cringe at the thought of how it's going to look to the naked eye never mind under a microscope after a few months use. Applicator aside it's really quite a good product, one of the best high street/drug store concealers I've ever tried and a complete bargain even when it isn't on some kind of offer which it usually is. Texture wise it's somewhere in the middle and should suit a lot of people unless your under eye area is extremely dry or extremely oily. It doesn't migrate down my face as the day goes on and coverage is great, not perfect but what concealer is? It covers the majority of my dark circles and brightens my eye area really well. I know I've bashed the applicator in this post but it actually does a brilliant job of blending without dragging and saves me reaching for a concealer brush. Does it crease? Yes it does but not badly. All concealers crease on me though, most people probably won't experience any creasing at all with this.
If you fit into one of the colours in the small shade range, don't think twice, buy it! If it works for you then what a bargain and if not, you won't be wasting too much money.
