Review: Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in " Fair (15) "

14:06:00

Hey there beauties,

Hope you are having a great week. Well am here with one of the most raved about concealers this year. Yes, am talking about, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. Although I liked my Palladio herbal concealer and Catrice camouflage cream but was still looking for one best concealer for my under eye area. I read so many mixed reviews on this concealer. Few claim this as the best drugstore concealer, while others think its an average one. Luckily when I was buying a few things from Beauty Arena, I spotted this on their site. So, I placed one in my cart to check it out myself. Let's see what I have to say about this.....

Okay so this concealer comes in plastic tube form with a doe-foot applicator similar to those of lip glosses. The packaging is just average and nothing special to say here. Internationally this concealer is available in 6 shades but currently there are only three shades available in Pakistan. Fair (15), Medium (25) and Cafe (30). Well I did a little research on net before choosing the right shade for me and found medium was a little darker for my NC (25-30) skin tone. Therefore, I decided to buy the lighter shade available that is Fair (15).

Luckily the shade is a good match for my skin tone. I can call it near perfect but not the perfect match. Its a bit lighter for me but luckily not a lot lighter and has slightly pink undertones. After blending into my skin it looks quite natural and doesn't appear too light. I still wish to get the shade Sand (20) that is available internationally, but wasn't available here locally because that would be a perfect match for my skin tone.

Now coming to the consistency. Its consistency is medium and is perfect in my opinion for a liquid concealer. The coverage it offers is medium yet buildable. A small amount of this concealer is enough to provide decent coverage. I basically need a good concealer for my under eye area to conceal my dark circles. I must say Maybelline sure has impressed me with this product. It conceals my dark circles quite decently without looking cakey. Blends like dream. Doesn't settle into fine lines or doesn't enhance any dryness under the eyes. I always had blending issues with all the concealers I have used till now or some of those tend to enhance dryness under my eyes, but I haven't faced any such issue with this one. So bingooo..!!!

Ok so now time for swatches. At extreme left you can see my bare eye with visible dark circles. The middle one shows the concealer applied and the last one shows the final results after blending. I have applied just one layer in this pic without any foundation or primer. You can see my dark circles haven't completely vanished but are quite less visible. For further coverage you can always add more and use a good foundation beneath.


Am pretty satisfied with the medium coverage it provides. Its ideal to use everyday as it blends so easily into the skin and brightens the under eye area. Now coming to the staying power of this concealer. It lasted on me for about 6 hours which is not bad. I applied it in the morning under one eye only and by the end of the day, I could see my dark circles were still kinda less visible under that eye. So the lasting power is pretty decent for a drugstore concealer at this price. Always remember to set your concealer with a good powder before going out to make it last longer.


The Goods:

  • Applies and blends easily into skin
  • Offers medium yet buildable coverage
  • Looks natural, not cakey
  • Doesn't settle into fine lines/wrinkles
  • Doesn't enhance any dryness on you skin


The Bads:

  • Available only in 3 shades locally
  • Staying power is average
  • Those with oily skin might find it a bit tacky


Price & Availability: You can find this concealer at Maybelline New York counters in Pakistan at all leading stores. I bought mine from Beauty Arena for PKR 750/- only. Also available online at Just4girls.

For international readers, these concealers are available in 6 different shades at all MNY counters in your conutry. Also available online at Walmart and Drugstore.


My Rating: 4/5



So for me, I think I have found another drugstore gem that is Maybelline Fit me Concealer. Am glad I tried it. I just wish that Maybelline introduces more shades in this range soon.

Have you tried Maybelline Fit Me Concealer yet...??? What do you think about it...???

    1. Yes, but those with oily skin can set it with a good powder that will make it last longer and will also help with the tacky/sticky feeling. Thanks for ur comment Julie :)

    1. Thanks Fozia...Yes I remember ur eyes luv... <3 If u have slight dark circles now, this should work absolutely well to cover those and brighten up the under eye area. Shade Fair would suit u well. Other than this, you can try Rimmel match perfection concealer, easily available at all Rimmel London counters in Isb/Pindi. I have read a lot of reviews on that. It instantly brightens the under area area and conceals dark circle well too...
