Today, I regret to report that it has finally happened. I have finally tried a product so bad, it deserved its own tag - "Worst concealer ever". When I try concealers, they will usually be lighter than my skin tone or just match my skin tone. More likely than not, they will either be creamy or a little dry. This concealer takes the cake for shock factor. It applied ok, not too runny not too creamy. But heck this thing dried like CRAZY! it dries so fast its almost impossible to blend out nicely, especially under the eye area, not to mention it has a powdery finish which settled into my fine lines under my eyes and also painfully highlighted all of my breakouts I was trying to conceal. Now this shade is only a shade lighter than my skin tone, but the finish of it made it look 3 shades lighter. Overall, I am definitely unimpressed by this concealer and will not be repurchasing it. I wish Australia allowed you to return cosmetics because I feel I wasted my money on this and would rather have picked up my holy grail concealer instead. SUrprisingly, both this crappy concealer and my HG concealer are by the same brand, Maybelline! My HG concealer at the moment is the Maybelline Fit Me concealer and the culprit responsible for the "Worst Concealer Ever Tag" is none other than its sister, the Super Stay 24hr Concealer!
I have included some pictured of the bugger and swatches of the shade I bought. Maybe if the concealer was slightly darker I may not have been as unimpressed as I could have figured out a different use for it. But since it oxidised so lightly, I don't think that is possible. Unfortunately I don't feel I would ever repurchase this again, unless of course I get it for free and it's darker to which even then, MAYBE I'd be willing to give it another shot.
