Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer - Review, Photos and Swatches

 I recently purchased the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer which is a make up and skin care product rolled into one. Lets see if this product lives up to its claims or not..
Product Description: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer is a super-concentrated and pigmented liquid concealer combined with goji berry and haloxyl to help erase the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. It has a unique tube design in that when you twist the top, product will be released in the round, squishy applicator sponge.

Packaging: The packaging of this concelear is quite unique and interesting; unlike of any other concealers I've seen at the drugstore. It comes in a 6.0 ml sleek plastic tube and has a round fuzzy sponge applicator at top of the twist up tube. This product is extremely easy to apply.All you have to do is to twist the product up, the concealer will come out of the round sponge tip and you can apply it directly wherever you want.

 My Views: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer claims to erase the appearance of dark circles, fine lines and puffiness around the eyes. The two key ingredients in this product are Goji berry and Haloxyl. Goji berries are antioxidants, which helps to neutralize the destructive power of free radicals. Haloxyl, on the other hand, is a combination of active ingredients that absorb and eliminate the colored pigments in your skin that cause the appearance of dark circles. The ingredients are definitely impressive!
 This concealer is available in (6) shades: Fair, Light, Medium, Honey, Neutralizer and Brightener. Although the neutralizer shade can be used on its own, it's also recommended for extreme dark circles to apply underneath your regular concealer for maximum coverage. The brightener shade is pink based used to brighten up areas of the eyes and face. I was conflicted which shade to purchase. For reference, I have medium skin with warm undertones (MAC NC 25 - 30) and I don’t have any eye bags or dark circles which I want to hide, I just wanted to highlight my under eye area.When I checked the swatches online, Fair and Light looked too light for me, and Medium looked too dark. So, I ended up with Neutralizer which is a peachy yellow shade.
The sponge tip glides really smoothly onto the skin, depositing the concealer where needed, but can’t be used for blending. For that, you’d need a sponge or a brush. Just be careful when you twist it up. If too much product flows out, you’ll have to remove it with a wipe or a dry clothNever try to wash the sponge tip with water.The package says that the applicator is anti-microbial. This is why you should avoid washing or wetting it. I apply it directly from tube under my eye area in triangular shape and later blend it with my damp beauty blender.
      The Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Brightener & Concealer from Maybelline is possibly the best drugstore concealer I have tried to date!! The formula is great, and it's super easy to blend. The product itself is very hydrating and creamy.It's not too thick or chalky. It literally blends on to skin so smoothly, immediately covering any blemishes flawlessly! It has super strong pigmentation, so it literally covers EVERYTHING! I like to use my damp beauty blender to blend the product but you can use your fingers and it will work just as well. It has a really interesting consistency, It's thin, easily blendable and dries to a powder finish. The concealer provides a bit more coverage than medium, and slightly less than fullonce it sets, it doesn’t move!I also love that is lasts all day long without any creasing,  You only need a small amount and you are good to go! I was soooo not expecting this to be a tube of amazingness, but this was a true shocker!

  I highly recommend moisturizing or applying a face primer first to give a little slip to your skin so the concealer will blend easier and yield a more natural finish.

My Recommendation: I absolutely LOVE this concealer! I love the packaging, I love the formula, I love the lasting power and on top of everything it's super affordable! It's definitely a drugstore gem, You guys should try this out! 

Price & Availability:  I got mine from Sister Act Online in PKR 1250. You can find it at Just4girls.pk, reforma.pk and other online makeup stores.
