Product Review: Maybelline New York Mineral Power Concealer - Mineral Cosmetics
It is time for another concealer review! I love mineral makeup so I am excited to try makeup from a drugstore brand's mineral makeup line. The drugstore brand I am talking about is Maybelline.
Maybelline is a very popular brand so I am very happy that they offer more natural mineral makeup options. Thus, I decided to review their concealer to test it out and see how it performs. The concealer that I will review by them is The Maybelline New York Mineral Power Concealer.
Cost: $9 - $20 each depending on where you buy it.
Ingredients: This concealer contains natural ingredients including glycerin, silica, and matricaria flower extract. This concealer was made without oil (so it is suppose to be oily skin-friendly), talc, or fragrance.
Consistency: This concealer has a thin consistency that is not watery, but not thick either, so it is a creamy consistency.
Eye Area: This concealer is moisturizing for the eye area and it does reduce the appearance of dark circles. However, it does also show lines underneath the eyes.
Smell: No fragrance or perfume. The smell is hard to describe, but the closest would be a clay smell.
Coverage: This concealer is almost full coverage. I got more coverage when I layered it and blended it in using a beauty blender, but even when applied this way, the coverage still was not full coverage.
Smile Lines/Fine Lines: This concealer did settle into my smile lines.
Dry Skin: This concealer is fine for dry skin; I recommend moisturizing your skin first before applying your makeup though since it makes the makeup look smoother and apply better.
Final Thoughts: I like that this concealer is a mineral concealer and that it moisturizes the eye area. Since this concealer also has great coverage, I think it would be great to mix with your foundation. Since this concealer doesn't work well for lines in the face though, I don't recommend it for those with mature skin. Otherwise, I do think that this is a good concealer so I do recommend it.
