Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer is a new Maybelline Spring 2015 launch by Facestudio that’s available in five shade selections.
You know I’m a total concealer junkie so I HAD to purchase Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer and give it a whirl!
Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer is a medium coverage concealer with a VERY nice formula. Drugstore concealers, in my opinion, have almost always been way too dry for me! It’s very difficult for me to find a concealer at the drugstore that doesn’t creep and crawl into my finer liners. They are either too sheer, too dry, too cakey, or too prone to creasing in my experience.
Just this past Summer, L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Concealer completely blew the drugstore concealer world out of the water by introducing a moist, gorgeously textured concealer. This isn’t to say that Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer is as moist (it isn’t sadly), it is to say that concealer is evolving at the drugstore and both Maybelline and L’Oreal are doing a great job of making me WANT to buy my concealer at the drugstore.
Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer Swatches (Light, Light Medium, and Medium)
As I mentioned above Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer isn’t as moist as Visible Lift Blur Concealer it is however, nicely textured in its own right! This is a light to almost medium coverage concealer with a creamy texture that blends easily under my drier eyes and conceals puffiness, lighter dark circles, and finer lines easily. I find the texture isn’t terribly moist but it isn’t dry either and blends out smoothly. I purchased three different shades and all the shades have a very strong yellow undertone so if you have dark circles this is going to be a very good remedy for blurring their appearance and brightening up your eyes. Just keep in mind the shades run pretty light. I tried light, light medium, and medium (which looked dark in the tube but was lighter when applied) and all the shades ran pretty light in my opinion so you might want to go a choose a shade up when purchasing.
This formula wears well for me without creasing. I can get about six hours of wear before seeing some fading and when set with powder I can get about eight hours!
Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer likely won’t take the place of Visible Lift Blur. I find Visible Lift Blur is a little nicer on my drier eyes! But I will say this is a very nice concealer but it does have some limitations one of which is the fact that it has such a yellow undertone. Yellow is fab for diffusing dark circles but not everyone has dark circles and some folks are seeing to conceal puffiness, finer lines, but not necessarily dark circles and there’s also the fact that yellow just might not suit your skin tone.
On the upside, if the color range does suit your skin tone this is a fairly nice concealer formula and a great stride in the right direction for drugstore concealer! Finally, proof that not all drugstore concealers have to dry and cakey!
Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer is available now at Harmons and should get a wider drugstore launch in January!
