Two Amazing Drugstore ConcealersTuesday, February 10, 2015
First of all, lets talk about The Eraser, this had quite a lot of hype recently, and this is the second tube I've bought of the stuff. The first, I wasn't so sure about, but that was because of the colour. I've worked out that this concealer is better for under eyes than covering blemishes and spots. First of all, I find that the sponge/eraser type applicator would just be a breeding ground for bacteria if you used it on your face, and I've found the light shade to be perfect for highlighting under the eyes. It has a really good coverage, on good days, I need just a small amount of this to get rid of my eye bags, on bad days, I use a couple of layers. But it's really blendable, light and has a good coverage. I find it really brightens the under eye area and doesn't go cakey at all. I find that sometimes there is residue concealer on the tip so I tend to wipe the eraser with anti-bac wipe every time I use it, this just keeps it cleaner and it not leaking all over my make up bag. Cause I won't lie, I am one of those people who loses lids, nothing I own has a lid on it. I think there is a goblin in my house who steals all the lids of everything.
Next is the Fit Me Concealer, something I have been using for the rest of my face. This has a pretty good coverage, is creamy and probably the closest thing to the Nars concealer that I've found so far. I do tend to sometimes need a couple of layers to cover big red spots (lovely) but it's a nice concealer that blends in well and seems to have a lot in the tube too. So no worrying about running out any time soon.
I'm pretty happy with these two at the moment, I set both of them with some translucent powder and I'm good to go. I would say that The Eraser is definitely worth a try for under the eyes, as it's the best thing I've used for eye bags for quite some time. So thanks Maybelline, you've saved me many a morning from looking like the girl from The Ring. And for that I applaud you.
