MAYBELLINE FIT ME! CONCEALER (HIGHLIGHTER) REVIEW


Maybelline Fit Me Concealer comes in 6 shades (Fair, Light, Medium, Sand, Deep, & Cafe). However, most drugstores in the UK retail Light (10), Medium (25) and Sand (20). Each tube contains 0.23 fluid ounces and costs roughly £6.00 (around Php 400).

Being a true to form late bloomer, I only got enticed to try concealers / highlighters quite recently. Well, it all began when I fancied watching Youtube tutorials of contouring and stuff, the rest is history :) So guys! Beware, it's quite addicting. Make sure to muster up will powers specially when you pass by Boots or Superdrug (or any beauty shops for that matter).


CMK HAPPY THOUGHTS
Almost all blog reviews tout this as a perfect dupe for NARS Radiant Creamy concealer (which costs £22, by the way!) It's almost 4x costlier than the dupe. Maybelline totally won the price war, hands down. I like the consistency of this product. It's not too heavy but the coverage is buildable. My favorite use for this is it being a highlighter. 

Tip 1: Create an inverted triangle on your eyebag area then pat it using your ring finger. You can also do the same on your forehead (just a tinyyy amount) and on your cupid's bow (lips).
Tip 2: Everyone's different but I usually follow this formula: Primer + Foundation + Concealer.

I currently use THIS primer and my all time favourite foundation, HERE.



CMK WISHFUL THOUGHTS
I got mine in Light (10) shade and I've been using this for a while now. noticed that the product tend to wear off after 8 to 10 hours. You can see traces of crease if you'll look closely (especially on the under eye area) but it's not significantly obvious from afar. As such, it's best to use a setting powder to prolong the effect. You can either dab your favorite foundation or use a loose powder after doing your makeup. Colour options are not that elaborate compared to NARS.

CMK THINKS
Product is perfect for beginners! It's affordable and easy to apply. Also, you'll notice an added glow after putting it on. I think this is one of the products I will repurchase over and over again. Am I the only one or do you also feel giddy whenever you apply your latest purchase for the first time? Ahh, all things pretty makes a girl happy! -CMK
