Hey guys! Today I have a review on Maybelline's Fit Me concealer which I have in the shade Medium. This concealer has been raved about by many and even claimed to be an almost dupe for the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer! Though I haven't tried that one (boy, would I love to!), I have established my thoughts on the more inexpensive offering.
|Just in case it wasn't obvious enough that I was referencing Frozen, because reasons. Also, Elsa displaying the product with her usual flair ;)|
The concealer is packaged in a nice slim and compact tube, however it is not the most robust. My friend's tube has started leaking and causing all sorts of trouble. Though I haven't experienced that yet (and hopefully won't), the tube can get a bit grubby, and concealer caking around the spouty-opening-thing. It has a very small doe-foot applicator though which holds a decent amount of product - I tend to wipe the it off on the edge of the tube - and its small size makes it quite precise and provides a very quick application.
Undoubtedly, this concealer has a very nice formula. It's a thin, creamy liquid consistency that works well in all areas of the face; from blemishes to bags. Unlike other concealers I've tried, this doesn't accentuate dry patches or areas of the face too badly - unless it's a particularly flaky spot. Similarly, it doesn't crease, look cakey or dry when used on the under eye area. Coverage wise, I'd say it's medium to full in the spectrum of concealers. I tend to apply and blend with the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease brush which sheers it out a little, but blends it quickly and seamlessly into the skin.When blended and patted into the skin, the coverage is much better. Either way it looks natural and light on the skin! The staying power is decent, lasting ten hour days with some fading and it can look a little dry in parts as time goes on, while it does stay reasonably well on oilier parts. Bear in mind I always set with a powder.
The Fit Me range of products boasts having shades for everyone - at least I think that's the idea. They do have a decent range of shades though, and with differing undertones. Medium seems to be a pretty good match for me, yellow toned and if anything a tad dark for some of my base products.
I do thoroughly enjoy this concealer and it has been a quick and easy product to use in the mornings. It's still probably not the best concealer I've ever tried (though I haven't tried many), but it will satisfy my desire for the NARS for the mean time! The Fit Me concealer retails for AUD$14.95.
