I do love the Mac Studio Finish concealer - it's very high coverage and easy to work with. It basically took me two years to finish one of those tiny pots though and I wanted to branch out and really try another concealer. I have a few other concealers from other brands, but I just didn't like them as much as my Mac Studio Finish, especially in the under eye area. Other concealers always sank into the fine lines under my eyes and just never worked as well.
The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer comes in about four shades, and then two different correcter shades. They range from very fair to medium (unfortunately nothing for deeper skintones, which is sad and something Maybelline should fix). The two corrector shades are a "Neutralizer" and "Brightener".
When I went to CVS, I actually couldn't find my shade in their regular color line, so I picked up the Neutralizer because it was a really yellow toned light medium shade. I am purely a medium skin tone right now, but I always go a shade lighter for my under eye concealer. I don't usually have to use a concealer on any other part of my face either, because I always use a pretty full coverage foundation, then powder foundation to set. It's simply just too much coverage if I use a concealer as well.
The packaging for this product is a long skinny tube, with a domed foam top that clicks up the product. Like any click lipgloss, I was for sure afraid that if I clicked too much at the beginning, it would explode the product out.
It didn't do that, but it for sure took like... 15 clicks to get at least some of the product to come out the top. It comes out pretty slow and in big chunks as well. I find that now, I have to click 5 or 6 times to get product out and it's always like a glob that I don't need so I tap on whatever I need, then leave the rest in the foam until the next use. In other words, I have to click 5 or 6 times, I get a blob that will last me about three or four uses on each eye before I have to click 5 or 6 times again. It's not annoying, but I expected the product to come out much more smoothly.
The good thing about that though is that the foam is supposed to be anti-bacterial, so even if you let it sit there it won't get infected with anything and cause breakouts.
I've found that the concealer doesn't wear as long for me as the Mac Studio Finish did on it's own, BUT if I put an eyeshadow primer underneath it, which is something I always did on hot days with the Mac Studio Finish, then it stays on pretty well. Setting it with powder is also key to it's longevity.
Overall, I don't hate it but it still doesn't top the Mac concealer.
These concealers can be found at all drugstores and retail fro between $6 and $8 depending on coupons and sales.
