Beauty ¦ Maybelline - The eraser eye

Welcome to the 1,000,000th review of one of the longest named concealers on the market. Now if you are a regular in these waters you will know that i'm always that persons that's very late so ends up half on the band wagon with my legs in the air and my face still on the road. However just because I could I thought I'd stick my two penneth in and review this. 

I'm going to be honest I was expecting pretty great things from this and in most of the sectors it delivered however it wasn't quite what I was hoping for. 

Lets start off with the negatives and end on a lighter note, the colour is just so off I picked up the shade light and the funny lighting in boots lulled me into a false sense of security. It is soooo yellow toned and it's just too dark for my skintone, it works fine if I use it under my foundation. I think it will be ok in the summer as I get significantly darker in the warmer months but it's not one I can use everyday now without messing around and blending and add a lighter concealer on top. 

Moving onto the positives, I really like the packaging I was a little dubious of the sponge applicator at first however it makes application so easy and I find there is just enough product from one click to do under both my eyes down my nose and my chin. The formula is very lightweight but you still get a very nice amount of coverage. I have given it a go over blemishes as curiosity got the better of me and it was ok. For me it isn't enough coverage on my blemishes and old scars however it does sit nicely on them and doesn't cake or go really gross. I've found that it does settle into the lines under my eyes a little however this problem is averted by a little bit of powder. 

Overall I'm super impressed by this and I would recommend it however it comes with a warning that even the lightest shade is very dark and very yellow toned. 


  1. I absolutely love this concealer! I've had it hiding away in my back up drawer for months and finally dug it out after my Benefit 'Fake Up' ran out.

    This is so much better than any high end concealer I have tried and I am so impressed with it.

  2. I´ve heard a lot of this concealer and always wanted to try it out but was always a tiny bit scared to try it out because of the sponge (& because I think I already found my one true concealer love). Now hearing that it´s quite yellow toned makes me not want to try it out because it would not fit my skin in any way.
    So thanks a lot for saving me from spending my money on something I cannot use.
