Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer Review and Swatches
So you know how I’m always on the quest for the perfect concealer? I do tend to get all Indiana Jone-like when it comes to locating concealer. By now I’ve tried hundreds……What? Some people love eyeshadow, some gloss, and me, I just happen to be passionate about concealer.
Get this, good times, I discovered Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer this weekend and I likey. I know right? That’s so saying something considering I wouldn’t trust the drugstore with something as important as concealer. But indeed its heck of a good stuff.
Jump for the review.
I kinda dig on Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation, I mean it’s not OMG incredible but it is decent so I was ever so willing to indulge in the new Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer.
Honestly, I didn’t expect alot. I’ve tried drugstore concealer here and there and I’ve always been far, far, far from impressed. But Dream Mousse Concealer is the real deal, very good stuff, count the Muse oh so impressed.
So basically it’s about the same texture as the foundation. It’s a fluffy whipped affair that’s feels super smooth and creamy but also sports a slightly silicon-feel. It could prove a bit too much for some because it’s honestly a very rich formula that’s heavily pigmented. For me? It’s a love. You have to be uber extra careful when you apply and just use a tiny bit as too much could make you look scary as all hells. A tiny dab should cover your entire eye area up very nicely as it’s pigmented enough to work magic on fine lines, dark circles, etc……I was worried it would crease and cake since the formula is quite rich but thankfully not it wears quite well throughout the day minus creasing.
The danger is there and you can easily go overboard with it and end up very disappointed so remember just a tiny dab for each eye will get you really great coverage. It blends very well and conceals all my problem areas perfectly.
Overall, you can count me impressed. I need to use it a few more days before deciding but I’m leaning towards adding this one to my HG (holy grail) collection of concealers. It’s smooth, it’s creamy, it’s crazy pigmented, and it makes this Muse all fresh and awake looking. I’m thinking this one deserves a great big Muse Approval!
Worthy of a haul in my humblest especially if you’re suffering from tired looking eyes. I got mine at Target for $6 bucks and some change.
Dying to hear what you think!
