Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

I wasn’t terribly impressed with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Foundation when it released. The actual design of the product is interesting and I like the application method even though I can’t help but shudder over the bacteria that may be lurking in that little puff (Maybelline claims it’s treated with an anti-bacterial agent but I’m not convinced).

My main problem with the foundation was it felt greasy on my face and had a really long dry down time. It remained dewy to the touch hours after application. Some proclaimed it set fabulously with powder but I have drier skin so I normally avoid powder. Others proclaimed it a flawless finish and indeed, it did give a rather great overall finish but it was that greasy, slick, never drying formula that threw me for a curve ball.

Am I bias against drugstore foundation? Possibly but I really do think Age Rewind wasn’t all that fabulous a pick. What did you think if you tried it?

Maybelline gifts us with an early Fall release and extension on the Age Rewind idea with a new concealer. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer might be good…I’m kinda hyped here peeps. Age Rewind Foundation sucked it hard but maybe the concealer will prove brilliance on a stick.


This super concentrated formula (hey, Maybelline calls it super concentrated, don’t shoot the messenger girl) creates a refreshed looking eye area with a formula rich in goji berry + hayloxy to help erase the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and even puffiness!

Best part?

Those of us with dark raccoon eye circles can use the neutralizer shade under their concealer for super concealing action.

Along with a yellow based neutralizer there is a brightening shade as well to add luminosity to the inner corner of eyes, cheeks, and brow bones.

You can choose from four concealing shades in:

  • Fair
  • Light
  • Medium
  • Honey

I think I wanna try!

It’s available now at drugstores for $8.99 and upwards depending on where you purchase.

What do you think?

I thought it might be a good replacement for Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer since that was such a sleeper hit and maybe by some chance this might turn into the same!

P.S. Today’s post is brought to you by the Boy Who Waited!

I was watching A Good Man Goes to War really late last night and couldn’t help but suddenly develop a crush on Rory the Roman. I thought he was quite irritating when they originally introduced him and a bit of a weakling but Rory proves himself to be something more than the Kenny (Kenny’s Dead!) of the Who universe. Even though he dies in virtually almost every single episode he’s still the stuff of legends.

We might not see you return for the second half of season six but rock on my little Centurion, rock on.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

  • annie

    i wonder if it’s going to be the same as the Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector Concealer

  • Mia

    The concealer is like most liquid drugstore concealers- just okay. While they do barely conceal, this one just didn’t impress me. The sponge is gross and makes application horrible and sloppy. Also as someone previously mentioned- germs. Yeah I’d so never recommend this to someone.

    I think the Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles is the best thing I’ve tried.It really does make a difference where nothing else ever has for longer than 10 minutes. I’m missing what people are saying about the sponge applicator. I think it works very well. Maybe I just have more to cover than otan other folks.

    I actually love the Age Rewind Dark Circle product, it does wonders for my dark circles. I tried the Age Rewind primer though and it makes me feel super greasy. I also can’t tell a difference at all with it.
