How I fake 12hrs sleep with Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer

"You look like you've had 12 hours sleep" was my son's pediatrician's comment to me the other day when we went for a check up. Hah! If only he knew about the 2am and 5am feeds that I wake up for each night. In fact I've had a few people tell me I don't look like I'm not getting enough sleep. My secret? Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer.
 


This is the 2nd time I'm buying this concealer and will repurchase again, which is already saying a lot! I use the shade Light, which is slightly lighter than my NC25 skintone.


Tip: Using a concealer 1 shade lighter than your skintone will really brighten your under eye area.


My thoughts

Pros
  • Very smooth consistency makes it easy to blend
  • Non cakey and doesn't settle into fine lines
  • Stays on all day
  • Brightens my under eye area (please note that my under eye area is only mildly darkened so I can't comment on how well this would be at concealing very dark under eye circles)
  • Buildable coverage allows me to cover acne scars without caking
  • Sponge tip applicator makes it very easy to apply

Cons
  • Some may find the sponge tip applicator unhygienic to use after a while as you cannot wash it.

  5. You look so beautiful! How is your skin so glowy!?

    I've been wanting to try this for ages, but I never know which shade to get! Maybe I'll get Light as well. Do you have any idea is the illuminator one packs any coverage?

    1. Illamasqua Skinbase is that makes it so glowy! That and the fact that I was running around a lot that day so it's probably a bit of sweat too, LOL.

      The Illuminator did nothing for me unfortunately, no coverage whatsoever and I didn't see much of a difference in terms of brightening my under eye area. I much prefer the concealer.
