Did you guys notice something new? Yup I changed the look of the blog a little. And in the coming days, you might see a few more tiny changes here and there. This was supposed to happen a few months ago, but I got busy and all this took a backseat. But I’m super happy now that I finally got around to completing it. Ofcourse, the ultimate objective is to improve your experience so if you guys have any feedback of any kind, please let me know.
Okay, coming to today’s post I’ll be reviewing the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in the shade 20 (Sand Sable). As I stated in my previous post, Maybelline launched their Fit Me range in India a few weeks ago and I picked up the Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation and the Fit Me Concealer.

The concealer comes in a transparent, plastic tube with a black twist-up cap. The cap is attached to a doe-shaped applicator. Personally, this is my favourite kind of applicator to use with concealers. It helps spread the concealer uniformly and into narrow areas like the inner corner of the eyes. The packaging is light-weight and convenient.
The product itself is a thin-medium consistency concealer which spreads and blends quite easily. It takes about a minute to start setting so you have enough time to apply and blend the product comfortably. The set product has a slight radiance to it so its not the best option to cover acne/zits. Plus the thin-medium consistency makes it harder to layer the product for that purpose. However, for the under-eye area it works pretty well to highlight the area while still keeping it matte. The disappointing thing though is that its coverage is light-medium and is best suited for those with light dark circles. For anyone having moderate to severe dark circles, this product would not suffice alone.
The shade I have is the No.20 Sand Sable. It is a yellow-toned concealer. Other than this shade, Maybelline has launched 2 other shades i.e No.10 and No.25. I also have the No.35 in this range (wrong shade bought at a drugstore abroad). I have swatched it below too in the shade comparison swatches incase some of you might have it. The finish of the concealer is quite natural and it lasts for about 5-6 hours on me. The shade No.20 is slightly lighter to my skintone which makes it a good choice for highlighting my under-eye area. On the downside though, the product has a tendency to crease. I know almost all concealers crease to some extent but this one creases within an hour of application, even after being set with a pressed powder. Ofcourse, setting it with a loose powder may improve the results but I still wouldn’t suggest it to someone with fine lines/wrinkles.

Below are some swatches of the product in comparison to some other foundations/concealers I have at the moment.
Other than the affordable price tag, Maybelline Fit Me concealer’s great packaging, lovely blendable texture and the resulting natural finish makes it a good choice if you’re on a budget. However, it’s light/medium coverage, low shade selection and a tendency to crease can be disappointing.
