A while ago I was lamenting about how I’d run out of concealer and didn’t know what to try next. Well, I stopped by the Maybelline section of my local drugstore and the Maybelline Master Camo Colour Correcting Kit caught my eye. The last concealer I used was too drying on my skin so I wanted a creamier product. I spent about $17 on this palette in store, but online it’s listed for $14.99.
Packaging: This palette has a window in so you can see precisely what you are getting despite it being wrapped in plastic in store. It would have been nice to have a little mirror inside, but it’s not that big of a deal. It comes with a little brush, but honestly stay away from the brush, especially if using it to conceal under eyes. It’s coarse and scratchy!
Shade Selection: There are three different tones you can get this palette in: Light, Medium, and Deep. I chose Light, because I’m more often than not pale as a ghost. And the light palette is the only one with the green colour pan. In the Light palette you get a green shade to reduce redness, a yellow to brighten, a darker pinky-peach shade to cover up dark circles, and two lighter shades to blend together for your perfect match. There is also a shimmery highlight!
Consistency: These shades are very creamy and blendable. If I’m stacking shades on top of each other I like to wait a few minutes in between so I don’t blend away the bottom shade. I can apply these creams with my fingers, but I prefer to use a soft brush to be more precise (and sanitary). Because the formula is more creamy than a liquid concealer I find that it works better to blend with a brush than with a sponge. That’s just my personal preference. I then set with powder afterwards.
Verdict I like this a lot. I can blend to get my perfect shade, and the green corrector is great. I wish the brush that came with it wasn’t so scratchy, or that they just didn’t include one to start with. The only shades that I don’t use very often are the yellow and the highlight, but I can definitely see me using the highlight when I take this palette on vacation with me in a few months. It lasts pretty much all day on me if I set with powder, but since I have dry skin most concealers stay. If you have oily skin and have used this, please let me know how it holds up for you! I’d love to know!
Blogging with a Resident Cat
Ion was a total pest when I was trying to take photos, he kept sitting in my sunbeam, then lying down on my photo board and stealing my pink tissue paper before proceeding to bunny kick it to death. He also decided to try to eat my palette. (Please know that no cats were harmed in the process, and I immediately snatched the palette away). Silly Ion.
