I must admit, I’m like a lot of my readers…when in doubt, I turn to the internet and the opinions of some of my favorite beauty bloggers to find the next best thing!
Although I get products sent to me to try and review, I still have a pretty pricey collection of my favorite foundations and skincare that I continue to purchase myself and that can start to add up. So of course, I’m always on the hunt for those beauty finds that don’t break the bank and actually work just as well as my high end favorites!
When I recently ran out of my beloved Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, I went on a mad search to find a cheaper alternative. I kept coming across all of these great reviews for Maybelline’s Age Rewind Concealer. After figuring out what color would work best, which is the Light 120, I decided to order it on Amazon.
When my Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer arrived in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised at how the color was the perfect match for my skin tone. For color reference, I’m an NC 25 in MAC and have slightly yellow undertones. I also tend to have pretty dry skin, but Im an avid user of serum, heavy duty moisturizers, eye cream and a super hydrating anti-aging primer. Prepping your skin is essential for creating the perfect canvas. I love the pigmentation and the creaminess of this concealer. It doesn’t crease or settle in lines and stays put all day. It also doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and eyes. I do a quick swipe of my Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder on top to set and my eyes are instantly refreshed and brighter. I didn’t think I would like the sponge tip applicator, but honestly it works pretty nicely. This concealer also does a great job at covering blemishes and discoloration. This might just be the best $6 I’ve spent in a very long time!
