Beauty Review / The essential dark under eyes concealer

This stuff has been raved about by beauty gurus for a good few months and as my mummy and grandmother are even using it, I thought it was about time I gave it a go! So let me introduce you to my new holy grail product - Maybelline Instant Anti-Age Perfect & Cover Concealer.

The packaging is sleek and filled to the brim with product, hurrah! At the top there is a little sponge applicator which is activated by twisting the tube anti-clockwise. Once it's been twisted product absorbs into the sponge slowly which allows you to apply to your face. I bought this in the lightest shade, I believe at the moment there are only 3 shades. The shade is perfect for my skin and it blends in so easily as it's also creamy. I pat the product on with the sponge applicator and then I go over it with a beauty blender just to blend out the edges. It feels hydrating and definitely conceals dark circles, whilst managing to brighten and subtly highlight the area. I have also tried this out on blemishes and it works well as a concealer too, although I don't think it's the best idea to use the sponge over and over on spots as it could spread germs.

I definitely recommend this concealer! I've also done my research and apparently America have this in foundation form, I'd definitely be up for trying that due to the amazing colour match and coverage. Let me know if you've tried the foundation and what you think of it!



  1. I always use the collection 2000 (or just collection now) one, but i'm starting to get a bit bored of it - may have to try this! xx

    1. I always used that one too and got a tad bored haha this one is much better coverage for under the eye as it highlights too!
