Maybelline Fit Me Concealer Review

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is probably one of the most coveted drugstore concealer ever. Raise your hand if it is your holy grail! I am kind of embarrassed to admit that I just tried this cult-fave concealer this year. I mean, where have I been? I was tied to the one concealer that I have been using for the past 2 years. I was afraid to try other concealers due to my dry under eye area. Does this affordable concealer suit my skin type? Keep on reading to find out..

Packaging

The Tip of Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer has typical packaging of concealer. Nothing special about it. But, at a glance, it looks similar to Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer because it is rectangular tube. Since it is rectangular, it won’t roll over easily when I carelessly put them on the table.  Also, I prefer this kind of tube to the pot. It is easier to apply concealer with the wand than to dip my finger on the pot, especially when my nail is long. The doe foot applicator itself, I think, is too small and stiff. It doesn’t hold much product so that I have to dip more than once for an eye.

Price

Many people said that Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is a dupe for Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I haven’t tried Nars one to be honest, but the price gap is very huge. Nars is more than 400.000 IDR, while Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is only 109.000 IDR for 6.8 ml. Moreover, you can always get a discount. Maybelline one is also easier to find. You can purchased it in Guardian, Watson, or online store such as Lazada, Shopee, and Sociolla.

Shade Range

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer Shade Fair 15

Maybelline offers 5 shades for Indonesian market, while originally it has 9 shades. The shades available in Indonesia are Light 10, Fair 15, Sand 20, Medium 25, and Deep 25. The shade that matches me most is Fair 15. It is the lightest shade in Fit Me range and has pink undertones. It oxidizes a bit after several minutes. I recommend to blend it right away after being applied.

Formula

Coverage of Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
The texture is liquidy and very easy to blend. I love to blend it with finger or with brush then pat with sponge (I learn this technique from Wayne Goss). That way, it will not crease. if it is blended with sponge, it does not set because it is too liquidy and it will crease easily. The result is dewy. If you have oily under eye, you have to set it with powder. For my dry skin, it provides instant hydration. There are few concealers I can wear under my eye area because most emphasizes fine lines and end up making my skin look dry and aged.
The coverage is light, but you can built it into medium without looking cakey. It reduces appearance of undereye circles and brightens them, but not so much for dark spots. I’ve got to say that it is natural looking concealer that does not enhance fine lines and wrinkles. I sometimes find that many under eye concealers bring out lines that didn’t exist.

After 8 hours of wearing, the coverage is slightly faded. It creases a bit, but does not sink badly into fine lines. Most concealer I have used sink into my fine lines right away after 2 hours of wearing.

Conclusion

I love to wear Maybelline Fit Me Concealer on every day basis when I don’t wear foundation or too much makeup because it offers natural looking. It looks like I don’t wear concealer at all. While for a full glam look, I prefer concealer with higher coverage. On that note, I rate this concealer 4 out of 5.
