Review | Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal in Light

I'm a new convert to concealer after years of not bothering with it and in the short space of time that I have started incorporating it into my everyday make-up routine, I can't live without it. My current favourite, the Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer, really brightens up the area beneath my eyes as well as covering any spots that I may have. It really is such a wonderful, long-lasting concealer which comes in about 100 different shades so there is a shade for everyone but the only downside is that it is so hard to get hold of. I really should have stocked up when I was in America as when I run out I will be slightly bereft. That said, at the same time I bought a concealer from Maybelline which currently isn't available in the UK (I sure do know how to pick them!) but it's so good that hopefully it will make its way across into UK drugstores soon!

The reason why I was so drawn to the Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal is that it is full-coverage and camouflaging. Whilst my make-up application isn't yet up to the same standards of the Insta-famous, I do still like my base to be full-coverage and dare I say it, heavy. I really do dislike sheer foundations and concealers. When I apply my make-up I do so to cover up what is 'lurking beneath' so to speak. I have rosacea on my face and I hate the pink, reddy tones caused by it so I like to hide it as much as possible, hence why I prefer products which offer full-coverage. Which is exactly what this concealer offers!

About the Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal:
"Maybelline's full-coverage, high-resistance concealer camouflages imperfections and dark circles to deliver an undetectable finish."

The Maybelline Face Studio Master Concealer is available in 5 different shades - two light, two medium and one dark shade. Shade-wise there isn't a great deal to choose from which is slightly disappointing, especially to those of which have darker skin. It is really rare to find foundations and concealers which come in a whole array of shades to suit all which is why I love the Sephora own brand so much. Straight away Maybelline are doing themselves an almost injustice in only selling this concealer in just 5 shades as they are excluding a massive amount of their consumers which is a real shame as the product is actually really good.

I bought this concealer in the shade Light which is the second lightest shade in the range. Had I known at the time that they sold a lighter shade then I would have gone for that one as Light is ever so slightly too dark for me but it's nothing that a dab of the Body Shop Lightening Drops can't solve! The Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal comes housed in a little 12 ml squeezy tube which is really easy to use and apply. I squeez a small amount onto the back of my hand, dot it underneath my eyes and on any spots I want to cover then blend it in using a damp beauty blender. The results? Well, it is certainly full-coverage, let me tell you! This concealer is fairly thick in consistency so you only need a small amount to cover a large area but it blends perfectly and it hides every single blemish on the skin. I've never used anything like it before. It covers everything without making the skin appear cakey. I have finally found the product I have been looking for!

I absolutely love the formula and the results this concealer offers. It does everything it claims to without making the skin appear cakey or heavy with make-up. It is almost as if it airbrushes the skin to give the appearance of one tone as it just covers everything up so well without being obvious on the skin. It blends in perfectly and I cannot fault the product itself. What I can fault is the shade range which is atrocious. When a brand makes a great product that they believe in they should create it in as many shades as possible to make it appeal to as many people as possible. By only creating the product in 5 shades they are really limiting themselves to just a small amount of customers who can purchase it due to the shade range. I really hope this concealer finds its way across to the UK - and in a few more shades as it is a really wonderful, heavy-duty concealer which is perfect for anyone who is after a really affordable, drugstore concealer which offers full-coverage.

  1. There are days when I need and want full coverage but concealers definitely need to come in more than 5 shades for sure, makes me less likely to buy it tbh.
