I remember that my first makeup were mostly from Maybelline. It all started with their lip balm to lip sticks and from their pressed powder to liquid foundations and BB cream. I started with Maybelline because this was all I can afford when I was in college. And not to forget Avon too with their Simply Pretty make up line. I bet these two brands have captured teenage market very well.
I began using concealer when I developed dark undereyes while working on the graveyard shift in my previous job. Concealer is a must for me. I had few pimples coming out every now and then in my younger years and I have problems with eye bags. Concealer has helped me looked fresh, clean, and smooth on days I really looked haggard and my facial skin was really uneven in tone. Concealer has helped considerably in many makeovers I’ve seen on TV and everywhere. I was into stick concealer for years then I tried Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer which is in liquid format.
I am a MAC NC 25 to NC 30 shade and my match for Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Foundation is Natural Ivory, Light 3. For Mineral Power Concealer, I got the Beige shade. It comes in a transparent tube with twist cap that has doe foot applicator attached to it.
I apply this on my undereyes and whole eye area, even the lids before putting on liquid or powder foundation. I use it on lids too before any makeup for a clean fresh slate to start with.
What Maybelline Says about the product:
100% micro-mineral pigments. Contains 0% oil, talc and fragrance. Good for skin concealer.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
Blends easily for complete coverage
Improves under-eye skin
Proven to reduce redness and dark spots, soothe signs of fatigue, hydrate under-eye skin
All-day natural coverage
Won’t clog pores
Contains 0% oil, 0% talc and 0% fragrance
What I like about it:
- It comes in a small bottle which you can conveniently carry in your purse or bag.
- It is easy to use and apply with the help of the doe foot applicator.
- It dries just in time after you have blended it well on the area you want to conceal.
- It is easily blended on skin. There’s no pulling of skin on the undereye while blending the product over it. Our undereye is a very delicate area, because of the thin skin on it. We have to be very careful with it, so we won’t develop wrinkles or lines early on.
- It doesn’t cake.
- It doesn’t settle on fine lines on my under eye.
- I find very affordable for P249.
- It is locally available. Maybelline counter is in almost all department stores.
- It is lightweight. It looks natural on skin.
- It gives nice coverage on my dark spots and dark under eye. I could say light to medium coverage depending on how much you put on. Topping it with face powder or foundation will add coverage on the area you are concealing.
What I don’t like:
- None so far. This product works for me.
I like this product for its affordability and quality.
See the beauty in everything,
