Concealers are an important part of any makeup routine and when my MAC concealer broke I decided to give another the Maybelline Fit me concealer a try. Although Maybelline is a drug store brand and readily available in most places I haven’t tried any of their complexion products, I love their Great Lash Mascara.
At the moment Maybelline is readily available at most malls in Nigeria so I headed over to their counter at Jabi Lake mall to get a few products including the Fit me concealer.
Appearance and packaging
It comes in a thin tube with a wand applicator and has the shade number written at the top. The tube is in a black matte top with the shade number at the top and I was given the shade 40.
How to use
It is really easy to use; I pull out the applicator wand from the container and place the product in a semi-circle around below my eye getting up to my temple. I then blend it out using a brush or a beauty blender. However, I find that the brush does not quite blend it out properly and I haven’t gotten the hang of using the beauty blender under my eye at least for this specific concealer. Once it is properly blended I set it with a finely milled powder to prevent creasing.
- Affordable and easily accessible
- It has a light formula which is easy to apply and blend
- The packaging, I am not a fan of products which have an applicator which comes in contact with the skin and is then reinserted into the tube. The possibility of introducing infection is high
- The shade chosen for me did not work it made my under eye look extremely grey which I didn’t like
- It also creased even after setting with a powder
Who is it for?
Anyone, it works on all skin types as long as you get the right shade
The overall performance was good, my only gripe is that the shade I was given does not work well with my skin tone so gives my under eye a grey look. However, apart from the colour, it works great.
The quality of the product is great and it compares favourably with other more expensive concealers.
Value for money 4/5
The Fit me concealer is affordable and does what is supposed to do cover blemishes and hide dark circles under the eye.
Ease of use 5/5
It is extremely easy to use and the product is very creamy which makes application smooth. There is no need for extra effort trying to blend it out properly.
Overall rating 4/5
The Maybelline fit me concealer ticks all the boxes, it is affordable effective and accessible and has a decent shade range (12) which means it will work for most complexions.
