Maybelline Fit Me Concealer Review

Hello and Welcome to Saving Face Beauty!

I just rewatched Jurassic World and DAY-YUMMM…. That Chris Pratt is sooo delicious.  New #celebritycrush. I’m just saying that if I was in a situation in which he needed to tame, or rather unleash, my “raptor” I would let him.  Multiple times a day if that’s what it took. 

For the past couple of months I've been gravitating towards Maybellne's Fit Me Concealer for brightening the under eye area and highlighting the face. For full review keep reading. 

Texture:

I really enjoy the texture of the Fit Me concealer, it’s light and liquid-y but not runny and it has the uncanny ability to melt into the skin and incorporate itself well with any kind of foundation you might already be wearing. It doesn’t look out of place on your face, which I really appreciate. 

Coverage:

I would describe the coverage as realistic and believable, which I would attribute to the texture of the.  It provides light to not quite medium coverage. If you’re in need of something that packs more of a punch consider it’s sister Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind. Keep reading for a detailed review. 

Usage:

I only use Fit Me for brightening the under eye area and other miscellaneous highlighting around the face which, I feel, is its common use. Today I passed on the foundation and just used a bit under the eye area for light coverage and highlighting, filled in my brows and did some very minimal eye makeup and went to work. This is a great option if you’re in a hurry or if you need a skin day during the week but can’t afford to look like you gave up on life.  

Cons

I really like the formula of the Fit Me concealer, I’m not as fond of the Instant Age Rewind but a lot of other people seem to be. To be completely honest I have a Love-Hate relationship with Maybelline concealers in general. The one flaw they both have in common, along with most other drugstore concealer lines, is that the brand doesn’t make shades to accommodate a wide range of skin tones!  I know what you’re thinking: “It’s the drugstore, what do you expect.” Not an excuse. Look at L.A. girl and their Pro Conceal line. That line comes with 24 shades and retails for the same as the price of the Fit Me. 

When you’re looking to conceal a blemish you need an exact shade match or else you run the risk of sporting that one awkward spot that doesn’t match the rest of your face.  I don’t even understand the theory behind the six shades Maybelline chose to include in this line. Two light shades, two medium shades and two deep shades. Those are the extent of your options. Unless you’re lucky enough to find an exact shade match you might be limited to highlighting, and even contouring if you happen to have a lighter complexion. 

Like I said, I really like this concealer, I just wish there was a more extensive shade range that would live up to the FIT ME name. That’s all.
