Review: Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer

I'd been looking for a new concealer but hadn't found something amazing and worth repurchasing. Drugstore concealers wear off after a couple hours and I couldn't quite find the right one from the fancy stores. I finally gave into the hype with Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer. Many bloggers have been posting that this is their holy grail concealer. I'm always hopeful when others make something their HG product, but I've been let down before. I'm happy to report, I'm not let down this time. This is my new holy grail concealer, yay!

Quick take: Buildable coverage, undetectable, lasts all day long. A+

From the Maybelline website:
Dream Mousse™ Concealer conceals with an amazing air-soft feel
-Air-whipped mousse texture feels lightweight on skin and builds opacity for settle-free coverage
-Completely covers dark circles, imperfections and redness
-Blends and smoothes away imperfections instantly
-Oil-Free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, dermatologist tested, safe for sensitive skin.
For Best Results
-Dot small amount of coverage onto flaw or imperfection or under eye.
-Pat with finger to blend.

Me gusta: What I like is my powder foundation doesn't cake up and look orange over it. It lasts all day long which is surprising being a drugstore concealer. It also features buildable coverage and it blends easily.

No me gusta: One thing you gotta watch out is if you dip you're finger in it you can get too much product. A little goes a long way I found out after trying to cover up something tiny and apparently getting enough product on my pinkie to cover my entire cheek.

This is one product I'll be purchasing again and again. I haven't used it as an under eye concealer, but it has great reviews for that on (I like my YSL Touche Eclat for under eyes since it brightens). Some complaints I've heard is that it can accentuate dry spots but some blogger (I can't remember who, sorry!) said you can alleviate this by using a wet brush. I haven't had this problem so I can't tell ya whether this trick works.

I love when I remember to take pictures when the product is unused...

Mmm mousse-y
