Cover Up Girls!

Hi dolls how are you all? Today I wanted to share one of my staple products in my make up routine. Before I tell you what it is let me tell you WHY it is so important to me. I am one of those people who starts getting dark circles under my eyes even with the slightest lack of sleep or water intake. Over time, I think I have become quite dependent on using concealer to cover up the dark shadows and I rarely leave my house without applying concealer under my eyes now. I have tried a huge range of concealers including high end and high street brands but I find myself always coming back to one product:

This is the Super Stay 24 hour Concealer from Maybelline. I have been using this on and off (whilst trying other brands) for about a year and a half. I love this concealer! It does everything a good concealer should do: it covers up dark shadows, it brightens the area around my eyes, it does not crease and it doesn't budge for HOURS! Granted, it won't stay perfect for 24 hours as the name suggests, but I would not expect it to anyway. Mine usually lasts for around 12-14 hours which I feel is more than adequate.

The tube contains a lipgloss style wand applicator which I prefer as it allows me to dab the product directly on to the skin under my eyes and then blend with my brush. The consistency is like that of a liquid foundation but less runny. It applies easily and smoothly on to the skin and blends really well, which is why I am a huge fan.

The Maybelline concealer is available to buy at Boots stores at £6.19 a tube. I have yet to find a concealer that matches up to this baby!

Have you tried concealers from Maybelline? Would you recommend any other concealers to me which don't crease and cover up dark circles?

  1. This has been on my radar for a while. I'm waiting to use up my Collection 2000 concealer then I may give this a go :)

    1. I have the Collection 2000 also and it is very good but I prefer Maybelline's for the lasting power xx

  2. I'm going for this next. Aaliyah forget collection 2000 it lasts 4 hours. Sometimes not even that. I think I'm going to get this soon.
