Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer

 

I thought I was getting an amazing bargain when I picked this up at 50% off, turns out, not such a bargain.
But to be fair, i'll talk about the good points first:
  • The coverage is pretty good. It's not full coverage, but it's pretty close.
  • The formula is smooth and glides onto the skin easily.
  • On young skin, the cream would sit smoothly on the skin.

Now, the bad:
  • The staying power is below average, after a few hours it needs to be reapplied.
  • ANY fine lines will be filled in and highlighted, they gather a build up of the cream and it looks horrible.
  • The formula sits on the skin like powder. 
  • It's not smooth, it cakes up and looks like you have 10,000 layers of it under your eyes.
I think on really young, teenage skin, this product would be okay, not great but okay.
For someone in their 20's like myself, it's too harsh and not natural enough for daily wear.

Price: $7.45 (on sale from $14.45 - Australian Dollars)
Score - 10/10
Coverage: Medium/Full coverage, just as it states
Score - 10/10
Application and Feel: Matte to touch, a little bit like chalk. Easy to apply and blend.
Score - 5/10
Last: Lasts a few hours, needs consistent reapplication.
Score 2/10
General Comments: Not a great product for a fresh look, I wouldn't recommend it.


SCORE - 5.5/10
