My New Favorite Cheapo Concealer :: Maybelline SuperStay 24 Hour Concealer

There are 4 makeup products I always wear before I head out of the door:

  1. mascara
  2. lipgloss
  3. blush

Concealer being one of the most important products that keeps me from looking like the cat dragged me out of bed. Dark circles and blotchy red spots can ruin a face no matter what other makeup you have on. So I'm always on the lookout for a new super duper concealer that is actually going to stay on throughout my busy hot days during the spring and summer. And thanks to my lovely mother who is always ahead of the game in trying out the latest and greatest beauty products and then passing that info onto me, she introduced me to Maybelline's SuperStay 24 Hour concealer ($7). Big thanks Mom- I knew I got my passion for beauty products from you!!

Now let me preface this 24 hour description as not being quite correct- I'd say more like 6-8 hours is more like it, but hey, that's pretty good for a drugstore brand. I found this stuff doesn't settle into fine lines around the eyes like some color stay products do and it's dry enough that it really stays put where you put it!! The color choices are limited, but I mix the lightest and next lightest one offered (ivory and light) and it matches my skin tone perfectly. Check out my photo above which shows my left eye with no concealer (the one on your right!) and the right one with concealer already applied. Pretty perfect match huh?

So if you're in the market for a new long lasting concealer, I'd definitely give it two manicured thumbs up! **And for extra staying power, always set your concealer with a little translucent powder right on top.**

Pretty good match! I have such a hard time trying to figure out the perfect match when it comes to drugstore face makeup. What eyeliner are you wearing its so pretty!

I agree with the drugstore makeup issue and finding the right colors. When in doubt, buy a few colors and mix them to get the perfect shade!
My eyeliner is a combo of two- Palladio navy blue liquid liner and Mark cosmetics blue chrome metallic eyeliner- it's soo cool and bright!

Sounds good to me...though not a fan of Maybelline...this one is a steal.A concealer is a must when applying make up to hide the dark and uneven patches in the face.
