My Review:
I purchase this concealer because at one point it had a lot of hype and since I'm still on a search for a perfect concealer I thought I should get this a try since I purchased it when it was on sale for 40% off at Rite Aid a while ago. The concealer came out at the same time Maybelline release the Superstay foundation which I really like but unfortunately this concealer did not work for me.

What I like about it: The coverage is good, it can go from medium to heavy coverage which is good for a drugstore brand, its very blendable and easy to work with and the shade selections are good.

What I dislike about it: I'm really dry under my eyes so I have to keep it moisturize as much as I could with a eye cream, however when I apply this concealer an hour later it started to flake and dry up under my eyes which looked really noticeable even though I had already apply eye cream underneath.

Overall I was disappointed with this concealer, anyone with oily skin would like it, I have yet to try it on acne/blemishes but I don't think I would since those areas are usually the driest and the concealer would not help. Since its very drying on my under eyes perhaps I should try it as my eyeshadow primer since I have oily eyelids.

Would I buy this again?: no
