I picked up Maybelline Fit Me Concealer whilst perusing the stand in Boots a few months back. I’d heard rave reviews about the concealer on twitter and blogs and, me being me, decided to pick it up to see what all the fuss was about. The main reason I wanted to try it was because it had been hailed the perfect dupe for the NARS concealer – pretty impressive stuff eh. But sadly, I am far from impressed with it.
First of all, I found all the shades to be really orangey-based. I have a fairly light to medium skin tone, so I was shocked to see how orangey the medium shade swatch was! I feel for paler ladies right now. The second reason I don’t like the concealer is because of how cakey it looks on. No matter what primer, moisturiser OR foundation I used it still went hideously flakey and crappy. I also found the lip of the bottle got grubby really quickly, no matter how much I tried to wipe it clean.
Over all, I’m really disappointed with this concealer. I had high hopes for it as it was deemed the number one dupe for the NARS concealer. I’m not one to write a negative review, but I feel like the product really does need improving!
Have you tried the Maybelline FIT ME concealer?
