Review & Swatches ♡ Maybelline SuperStay 24hr Concealer

Hello my loves!

Today's review is on the Maybelline SuperStay 24hr Concealer. This was the first concealer that I ever purchased, when I was about 15 years old. Since i've been using this concealer for so long, I decided it was about time for me to post a review on it!

This concealer is said to last for 24 hours without transferring, whilst providing natural-looking coverage to help conceal undereye darkness, imperfections and flaws. 

The texture is very thick and creamy, and quite drying. I find it to be too heavy and prone to creasing if used on my under eye area, but I do like it for concealing face blemishes. The formula sets very fast, and I find it to be quite difficult to completely blend in.

This concealer is so pigmented, and has amazing coverage! Also, I do have to agree with it being long lasting. I never wear my makeup for 24 hours straight, so I can't test that claim, but I can say that it lasts all day long on my skin.

I'm not exactly impressed by the shade range of this concealer. There are only three shades available in Australia; Ivory, Cream, and Deep Beige. I own the shade Ivory, which is the perfect colour for extremely pale skin tones (like me!). I am so happy to find a concealer range that has such a pale shade, but unfortunately they only cater to pale to medium skin tones, so darker-skinned girls will have to miss out on this one.

The packaging of this concealer is nice, but nothing extravagant. It has a clear plastic bottle, with a white lid. The concealer is applied with a doe foot applicator. 

The Maybelline SuperStay 24hr Concealer is widely available in drugstores/chemists around Australia. It retails at $14.95 for 5.5ml of product.

Overall, I do enjoy using this concealer. I would recommend it to any fair-skinned beauties looking for a blemish or face concealer. It is intensely pigmented, has great coverage, and lasts all day long.
