I am late on the game with this one, but I like to finish products before trying new ones so I had to wait. Whomp.
I finally got my hands on the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Concealer in the shade light/medium. I have heard such great things about the concealer in terms of coverage and lasting power that I had to give it a go. This is a product I planned to use under my eyes to conceal the slight shade of dark circles and add brightness.
My typical go to under eye concealer is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer in the shade Neutralizer. I like how it lightens up my under eye section while canceling out the darkness. So when I finished this product, I was excited to try the Better Skin Concealer.
My thoughts on the Better Skin Concealer?
+ Great consistency
+ Easy to blend
+ Long lasting
+ Adds an even color to my skin
+ Matches my skin tone perfectly
- Maybe the color matches my skin tone too perfectly because I do not get a highlighting effect that the Age Rewind gives me
- Does not cancel out the dark circles as much as I'd like
Better Skin in Light/Medium
No brightness under the eye, but does provide even skin tone
Age Rewind in Neutralizer
Adds brightness under my eyes
I contemplate trying the shade Light in Better Skin, but part of my just wants to stick to what I know when I finish this tube. I really miss my Age Rewind!
Would I buy the Better Skin concealer again? Perhaps, I'm not sure. Maybe I'll get the shade Light if it's on sale. If the Light/Medium shade works well on blemishes, the Better Skin concealer may be a keeper.
For now, it's fine. Not blown away, but it's good.
