Product description:

  • Micro-Corrector Applicator micro-fills and smoothes.
  • Active formula with Haloxyl reduces the look of puffiness and shadows while fading the appearance of under-eye circles. Active Formula and Micro-Corrector Applicator erase dark circles, puffiness and fine lines instantly. It is available in 6 shades- fair, light, medium, honey, neutralizer and brightener.
  • Apply neutralizer shade for extreme dark circles.
  • Brightener shade adds a luminous touch.

Packaging:

It comes in a transparent plastic tube with a sponge bob head applicator. The applicator is soft, spongy and squishy which I love as it is more gentle on the under eye areas compared to the doe foot applicator. I will suggest not to share it with other anyone, if you have hygiene issues. The twisting up tube is a bit tricky to use. You need to rotate it twice and wait for 2-3 minutes to get the product out. Don’t twist too much though, or you’ll be wasting the product away.

My experience with Maybelline Instant Anti-Age The Eraser Eye Perfect & Cover Concealer:

Let’s just start by saying that I LOVE THIS product. I really really really love this. The consistency is great and it brightens my under eye area so well. The size of the sponge is a little large, so I can’t really apply it close to my lash line. Coverage is medium to high and stays for good 7-8 hours without any touch ups. Moisturisation is a must before applying it otherwise it might look cakey. It sets too quickly, and so blending is a real pain.  The thick texture might lead to creasing sometimes, but you can tame that by using a primer. Primer will actually help to increase the blending time and so the concealer doesn’t set quickly and you have more time to blend well. I too think that the sponge is a bit unhygienic but the concealer is so good that I can overlook this easily. It’s a super fun product to use. I love it.

Pros:

  • Full coverage
  • Extremely lightweight
  • doesn’t settle in lines
  • covers dark circles like magic
  • travel friendly
  • perfect for everyday makeup
  • never ever creases
  • Blends Well
  • Doesn’t Clump
  • Easy To Apply
  • Gentle on skin
  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Lasts all day

Cons:

  • Look dry under the eyes, so make sure to moisturize prior.
  • Sets quickly, so make sure you use a primer
  • Not the best color selection, especially for those with dark skin
  • The sponge applicator isn’t completely hygienic
  • Availability in India (But for that Amazon comes to rescue. hehe!)

Rating: 4.5/5
