I would say I was pretty happy with the concealers I was using, i've been through two tubes of the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer but even though I was happy I still had the urge to try more. Isn't that always the case? I'd heard such good things about this Maybelline concealer, even go as far to hearing it compared to the NARS Creamy Concealer; which i'm still yet to try, so I thought I would see what the fuss was all about.
I common theme that I sometimes find with budget concealers is the writing on the packaging rubs off very easily. Annoyingly I didn't manage to take pictures before some of the writing and disappeared. This doesn't bother me too much but is worth noting. The product itself comes in fairly easy to use packaging with a sponge applicator which isn't too big so that ir can easily be used under the eyes.
The concealer itself comes in 6 different shades, ranging from fair to dark as well as some being more pink or yellow toned. I really like that a wide range of skintones will be able to find a good match for them. I went for the shade 15 fair which leans a little more pink toned than shade 10. I've found it to be a very good match for my fair skin without being too pink making it very good for covering redness and pigmentation.
The product itself is very creamy making it easy to blend onto the skin. I've used it straight from the applicator, with a brush and with my fingers, all of which giving great results. It's not to thick or dry so cover dark circles under the eyes well whilst still being pigmented enough to cover blemishes.
There's not many concealers that i've found to be suitable to use under the eyes and on redness, this is definitely one so if you're looking for an all purpose, quick to use product this would be perfect. The wear time is really good as well, where I get oily it doesn't wear as long but never looks patchy or like I need to reapply. This has become one of my go to concealers and I think it's one of the best that you can find for a very good price.
