Maybelline Fit Me Concealer Review

Effectiveness: 5/5

Pigmentation:4/5

I’d say this is medium coverage because it covers redness, but it is still see through enough to let dark circles/blemished peek through.

Here is a swatch of the shade light.

Texture: 4/5

It is not runny like some drug store concealers I’ve tried. It blends nicely and doesn’t look cakey as long as you don’t apply too much.

Ease of use: 3/5

The doe footed applicator makes application a pain. I dot it on the back of my hand which absorbs it as quick as I can get it out.

Lasting Power:3/5

This lasted around 6 hours on me when set with powder.

Packaging:3/5

Value:3/5

Cost: 4-6 bucks at your local drugstore, Target, ect.

Overall Mabylline Fit Me Concealer is

Best For: Those looking to cover minor imperfections

Avoid it if: You don’t like doe footed applicators

Maybelline Says:” Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be…fresh, breathing, natural. With an exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin’s natural highs and lows to show through.”


 

Baking Beauty: After trying(and liking!) Maybelline’s Age Rewind Concealer I decided to try another of their products. I really like the formula but I wish it had more coverage and that it was matte.

 

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer Review

Effectiveness:3/5

 


Pigmentation:3/5

The concealer is light/medium coverage. I don’t know about you but I use a concealer because I want to completely cover things. While it did help neutralize redness, my under eye circles/blemishes peeked through. Also, it had more a dewy finish that tended to make me look oily.

 

Texture: 4/5

It is smooth and easy to blend. It’s never cakey/drying either. 

 

Ease of use:4/5

The concealer blends easily, but the packaging is problematic.

 

Lasting Power: 3/5

It lasted for around 4 hours before I needed to touch up.

Packaging:2/5

The packaging is on the plain side. Also, the lip gloss esque applicator is unsanitary. I don’t mind dabbing it on my hand instead its impossible to get out once you get towards the end of the tube.

 Value:3/5

Best for: Those looking for light coverage and who are able to touch up throughout the day.

Avoid it if: You need full coverage.

Judith August Invisible Stockings Review

 Judith August Invisible Stockings

Invisible stockings is a color tint that is natural and created especially for legs. The product will diminish small imperfections. It is water resistant; stays put for both day and night wear and will add a silky glow to your legs.

It was a major shock when I opened up the bottle and saw that it was a gold color and that it was sparkly looking. At first, I thought something was wrong with it, but went ahead and applied the product anyways. I had someone else apply it, so I was able to watch what it did to my legs.

It does not tell how much to actually put on your legs, so maybe I put too much on, but it felt goopy. Wiping some off, I then rubbed it in a little bit and then let it dry for five minutes. The person that applied the product onto my leg used a plastic glove when they did it, as they did not want to get the product on their hands. I think if this is a product you are going to use frequently, you should get a leg brush or get a makeup sponge, so you would be able to apply it evenly. The directions tell you to buff the product off afterwards, getting all excess off, I would assume. To do this I ended up using a softer paper towel and it worked, but I felt like way too much of the product actually came off, so I think a makeup pad would work best. When it came time to shower the next day, I was not sure what I was going to have to do to get the Invisible Stockings removed. It was not terribly hard to remove but it was not the easiest thing to do either. I ended up putting a ton of body wash on my legs, and then used a “wash cloth” that has this scrubby thing on the other side of it. I had to scrub rather hard to get the product removed from my leg. I definitely did not shave my leg afterwards as I had a pretty raw leg after that experience.

The product states to use on clean shaven legs and that is definitely true. I shaved in the morning and then applied the product later, thinking it would be okay – WRONG. Invisible Stockings needs to be applied within minutes after shaving your legs. This product made the tiny little hairs very visible, more than they were before using it.

Just because this product did not work so well for me does not mean it will not work for other people. I think it would work best with those that have small pores, do not get stubble quickly and have a slight tan to their legs.

Overall, I would recommend this product, even though it did not work the best for me. I’m not the type of person that really likes to wear stockings, so to me it looked a bit weird on my legs. For other people, I think they would have a great experience with this product.

Judith August EraseZit Pencil Review

Judith August EraseZit Pencil

The EraseZit Pencil is an antiseptic concealer and corrector with tea tree oil and camphor. The product helps to cover blemishes and acne. It calms irritations, scraps and nicks and it will zap acne breakouts. EraseZit Pencil is long lasting, all-natural fragrance and water-resistant. The directions are simple; cleanse your face, pat it dry, then apply the product directly onto the spots, blend the outer edge and then smooth it to get an even finish. You can apply your regular foundation over this product. This pencil works well for those that have oily skin as well. This product is like a concealer or foundation that is in the form of a pencil.  This product comes with a pencil sharpener, which I have yet to use, as it was already sharpened pretty well when I received it.

I have used this product a few times and applied foundation over the top of it. The product works as it should. It was easy enough to apply onto the skin. I was not sure how much to put on or necessarily how to apply it. I sort of used it as a colored pencil and it worked well enough. I believe the trick to this product is getting the true color for your skin.

I will most definitely continue to use this product. I do not think it exactly helps to reduce acne breakouts. For me, my skin breaks out with new makeup products, but if I keep using them, my skin gets use to the product. With continued use of this product I think I won’t have any issues with break outs.

There was no smell at all, which I was glad about. Some make ups have such odd smells, so I was thrilled that it was natural, as well as allergy free.


As for it being good for oily skin, I’m not sure I would agree with that. I have very oily spots on my face and it didn’t really do anything for me. Not that it made my skin oilier, but it just did not help with the oil at all.

With some makeups, they have a heavy feel to them, which this one did not at all. This concealer was light and airy feeling.

I would most definitely recommend this product to anyone that is looking to cover up little blemishes and marks.

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer Review

Disclosure: The Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer used in this review was purchased with my own money.


What Maybelline says:Anti-aging concealer targets and erases dark circles, puffiness and fine lines instantly.

Baking Beauty says: This is an all around good concealer that covers my dark circles without being cakey or settling into lines.

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer Review

Effectiveness:4/5

Pigmentation:4/5

I used the shade light. I’d describe this concealer as medium coverage. It partly covers my dark circles and brightens the area. However, it does not completely cover the discoloration. This is most noticeable up close, and I didn’t find the product to be buildable.

Texture:5/5

The concealer is thin yet creamy. It is also slightly moisturizing,doesn’t settle into fine lines ,and it doesn’t crease.

Ease of use:4/5

The powder puff like sponge is fun to use. However, it took me forever to get the tube started. They say 5-10 turns. It took me at least 100!

Lasting Power:4/5

This lasted for around 6 hours before I felt the need to touch it up.

Packaging:3/5

I wish there was a way to get product out without the sponge as it feels slightly unsanitary and is impossible to clean!

 Value:4/5

The texture and lasting power make this worth the (low) price to me!

Where to buy:Available at your local drugstore or drugstore.com

Price:Around $10

Clinique Airbrush Concealer Review

 



Clinique’s Airbrush concealer is a creamy lightweight concealer. It doesn’t feel like you are wearing any at all. Also, surprisingly it doesn’t look like you are either. It blends easily for a smooth, non-cakey look! It is pretty sheer. It works great on smell blemishes and dark spots. However, it is too see-through to use under my eyes.

What I liked
1. Smooth and easily to blend
2. Gives a truly airbrushed look over dark spots
3. Brightens skin while concealing
4. Lasts all day when set with translucent powder

What I didn’t like
1. I did not care for the packaging/application. Several of Clinique’s products have a built in brush that you have twist to release the product. It takes for forever on the first use to get it started! It is also too easy to get too much product.

Overall, this is a sheer concealer, that covers  without looking heavy or fake.

Where to Buy: Sephora for $19.50
