Shades of Beauty

My Favourite...

- Drugstore Concealer -

In the spirit of the new year new everything, I am introducing a new series to Shades of K - My Favourite...


In this series, I will share with you, my most beloved and repurchased beauty/fashion products. I also encourage you to tell me what's your favourite product, so that we can exchange experiences to avoid bad buys and discover new products.


For the beginning, I start with My Favourite... Drugstore Concealer.

Get it here

It's the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer.


To be honest, I can't tell you how many containers I used up. Of all the concealers I own and put through the test, drugstore as well as high-end ones, the Instant Age Rewind is hands down one of the best I ever tried.


It's insanely pigmented hence the coverage is amazing. The concealer doesn't crease or accentuate fine lines even better it blurs/diminishes them. I don't have dark circles, so I cannot tell from my own experience, but considering the high pigmentation, I say it can cover them. Really dark circles may need an extra layer.


Right after applying the Instant Age Rewind has a tightening sensation which feels like an instant lift for your eye area and who over 25 doesn't want that.


Many people don't like the applicator as they feel it's unhygienic. According to Maybelline, it's antimicrobial, so it shouldn't cause breakouts or other skin issues on anyone. For me, the applicator works like a charm.

Although I have to say, I would never use this concealer on clients. For the simple reason that there is no other way to access the product than by applying it with the applicator. The same applicator for different clients is just not an option, so unfortunately, I can't use this concealer on clients.


Other than that, I highly recommend the Instant Age Rewind Concealer.

What about you?


See you soon.
