The Concealer That Should Be Given An OBE

I don’t know about you, but as I have aged I notice that the skin around my eyes has darkened slightly. This has meant that I have tried lots and lots of dark circle concealer over the past couple of years. Sad to report, very few have impressed – well, in truth, none of them have proved to be ‘the one’. I have found some tricky to apply – often the consistency was too firm for the delicate skin around my eyes. Others looked and felt oily on my ‘normal’ complexion. Most collapsed into the creases of my wrinkles once warmed by my skin. None of them had staying power. A pretty dispiriting story all round. BUT WAIT!  I finally have good news. Very good news.

I found Maybelline Instant Age Concealer. This cosmetic house may not be top of the range but I have found its products not only very good, but great value too. Anyhow, this is my experience of their dark circle treatment eraser.

I found it took quite a few twists before the product appeared on the sponge applicator. But that was only the first time I used it. Ever since it only needs a half turn to work.

Dab it where you need it. You don’t need much product to get very good coverage – a little goes a long way. I use a brush to then blend it in an outward motion. Covers and blends beautifully – my dark circles disappeared and I needed no foundation afterwards. Love the texture and it hasn’t creased or melted once. But it does have staying power – brilliant.

Why you will love it

Active formula erases dark circles, puffiness and fine lines instantly.

The sponge applicator makes application easy peasy.

The consistency is superb – just right for delicate under eyes. Covers up the odd spot or pimple too.

Product contains an anti-microbial system so you don’t have to worry about cleaning the sponge. Do not wet the applicator and wipe off any excess eye concealer with dry tissue only.

Does not crease, melt or otherwise annoy the hell out of you.

Staying power – WOW. This one lasts and lasts.

Hi Angela – so glad that you like our magazine. Ellie is still with us but she is a busy working Mum of 2 teenagers so cannot devote the time that Grace and I can. Also she opened a Sushi restaurant in Cheltenham, something she had wanted to do for some time, and it has been not only extremely successful but also very time-consuming. We are all in touch constantly and she is still a huge supporter of the website and does occasionally pen a post! Best wishes Annabel x
