One of the YouTube Cult Classic Concealer it is!!! Almost all of the amazing Youtubers are raving about this concealer. It is none other than Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer.
So when they launched it in India just a few months back I was literally dying to have my hands on it. Finally I bought it from a Beauty center and it’s been a month since I’m using it. So it’s time I share my views on it.
About the Brand:-
Maybelline is a New York based drugstore brand. It is actually the best drugstore brand. It had everything from Kajal to eyeshadow palettes. I hardly know anyone who has not used Maybelline products. Its colossal kajal has literally revolutionized the way of using kajal. I still use it sometimes, it will always be my favourite kajal.
Formula with Haloxyl instantly covers and diminishes the look of puffiness. Eye area looks radiant and refreshed. For extreme dark circles, apply the Neutralizer shade underneath your concealer shade. Use the Brightener shade to add a luminous touch to inner corner of eyes, cheek and brow bones and bridge of nose.
This concealer comes in a transparent glass tube and a plastic cap with just the name of the product and shade printed on it in pink and white colours. All the other details are given on the outer packaging. The packaging is quite unique with a sponge applicator on it; it’s actually very convenient as it helps to discharge only the required quantity. Overall it’s quite beautiful, unique and travel friendly.
Price and Quality:-
It is available in India at ₹650 for 0.2FL.OZ./ 6.0ml.
36 months from the date of manufacture.
As it’s officially launched in India, it’s easily available online at Amazon, Nykaa and even at many beauty stores.
Directions for use:-
Turn collar of the Micro-Corrector Applicator in direction of arrows until product is visible on sponge. This may require a number of turns. Adjust accordingly for desired amount of product. Using Applicator, apply concealer directly to under eye area, blending in an outward motion. To apply more, twist collar of applicator 1-2 clicks at a time. For best results, use sparingly.
Note: The Eraser Dark Circles is protected with an anti- microbial system. Do not wet applicator. Wipe off excess eye concealer with dry tissue only.
About the product:-
It is a very thin consistency concealer which is very amazing to work with. The concealer is very light weighted and blends out amazingly.
My experience with Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer:-
First of all I would like to say that I’m in love with its packaging; it’s quite outstanding with eye catching pink and transparent tube and that amazing applicator. The only issue with packaging is you have to twist it a lot and sometimes it leads to wastage of product. I don’t use much concealer rather having dark circles, but when this concealer launched I felt I got something good for my dark circles. It is quite amazing; it blends out like a dream. The sponge applicator somewhat fails to blend it properly. I have even tried to work it with a concealer brush but I love to blend it with my fingers as it gives more natural finish.
I bought the shade Medium which is a bit of nude shade, as the Salesperson in beauty centre suggested me this as per my skin tone and dark circles. It is quite suitable for a bit fair and medium Indian skin tones.
It gives medium coverage and is quite good to cover minor acne scars and redness. The Concealer is also much pigmented and has an amazing staying power of more than 6 hours without creasing or settling in fine lines. I had read that it has a bit of drying effects but I can’t feel it even a bit drying, but for dry skinned people I think it can be drying. So always moisturize properly before using it.
The only thing I don’t like about it is it fails to give full coverage. On days when I’m well rested and don’t have much dark circles it gives a very good brightening effect to my eyes hiding those light circles and puffiness. But when the condition is bad, that is I have some serious dark circles it fails to completely conceal it. And layering it more than twice makes it look quite unnatural.
Sometimes I try to work it over my L’Oreal Foundation and Compact, it works good but then too results are not quite satisfying. So I think I will have to buy the Neutralizer shade (as mentioned above) or some colour corrector and then use this Concealer to completely conceal my dark circles and brighten my eyes. And as for its dark circles treatment, I don’t think any Concealer can do.
Things I like about the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer:-
Covers light circles
Covers light scars and redness
Gives good brightening effect
Highlights high points
Good staying power
Doesn’t settles in lines
Things I don’t like about the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer:-

Ratings: – 4/5
My recommendation on the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer:-
Overall I like this Concealer and would highly recommend it to those who have just a bit of circles around their eyes. It gives amazing brightening and lightning effect and is quite affordable. But for extreme circles try it with a Neutralizer or colour corrector or try to buy something that would give full coverage. I wish it can provide full coverage!!
Can you suggest me some amazing full coverage Concealers??? Which Concealer you love and why??? Do let us know in comments and don’t forget to share as your friends and family may be in need of a good concealer.
