Maybelline Fit Me Concealer



Confession - I never intended to buy this concealer! I'd been eyeing up the Rimmel Wake Me Up for a while and headed down to my local make up shop to scout it out. Typically, it doesn't appear to be available in Finland, (correct me if I'm wrong) so after sampling what was on offer, I opted for the Fit Me concealer from Maybelline instead.   

I wanted a shade that was a touch lighter than my skin tone so that I could use it as a highlighting type concealer that would also give me fairly reasonable coverage. Luckily, I rarely suffer from breakouts but I do tend to suffer from darker, under-eye circles and so brightening up that area is a must for me. 



I think I made a good choice regarding the shade. I went for number 15 which is described as Fair. The formula is lightweight yet creamy and blends seamlessly into the skin to give a natural finish. If you're looking for a full-coverage concealer to hide severe acne, then this probably isn't going to cut it for you; however as a overall face-brightener and eraser of dark circles, this works a treat. 

You don't need a huge amount of this product and I find that a smaller amount works best around the eyes as layering up the product leads to creasing. The small applicator is perfect for pinpointing where you need to apply and I usually blend it in using my fingers or a blending brush. One thing I would recommend is setting this with powder after you have finished applying as this reduces slippage and I find it lasts much longer this way. 

The fact that this concealer retails for around £6 is a massive winner and if you're looking for medium coverage that won't break the bank, then this is a strong contender. Let me know if you've tried the Fit Me concealer from Maybelline. I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comment box below.

  1. I've heard a lot of reviews about this being compared to the ever so popular NARS version (which I actually couldn't get a good match for) so will have to pick this up soon x

  4. I haven't tried this but the formula looks really nice - I really need to try more concealers as I haven't found a good one for me yet.

    1. I find concealers, foundations and mascaras to be the tricky ones to get right.. everyone has such different tastes, it's always hard to find the one that is exactly right for you! xxx

  10. I haven't used it in ages, but this is a really great concealer. I just ran out of concealer actually but of course, I opted to purchase one of the new Mac concealer duos...the need to always try something new, you know how it is. :-)
