Overall Rating: 4.8 out of 5

PACKAGING – This liquid-type concealer comes in a classic tube packaging with a doe-foot applicator. The concealer wand is long enough to get product out of the tube until the last bit. The tube is sleek, thin & lightweight. It takes up very little space inside the makeup bag; so it is perfect for travel. The shade name can be found at the bottom of the tube; và important information regarding the product is also found in the packaging. The only nhỏ I could think of is: the writings on the packaging are easily worn off, especially if you use it regularly, lượt thích I do. Despite this, I did not deduct a point for Packaging because I personally vày not mind that nhỏ at all.

PERFORMANCE – This concealer is probably my most recommended concealer khổng lồ try for newbies at makeup. It is an all-around concealer that works well for all skin-types. It is neither too thick nor too liquid-y, so it applies và blends easily on the skin. However, it does not offer enough coverage for huge & red zits; but it works well for dark spots và the under-eye area. Because the formula is not too thick, you can build up the coverage up khổng lồ medium. It also has a tendency lớn crease especially on the under-eye area; but most concealers crease on me anyway. I just make sure to lớn always set it with powder. The shade 20 (Sand) also works well as both an under-eye và spot concealer for my light-medium skin tone.

Some Notes about the Ingredients:

Top Ingredients

Water is the first ingredient; therefore it has the highest concentration.

Cyclopentasiloxane is a silicone derivative commonly used in cosmetic & skin care products. It is synthetically produced và has low viscosity. It absorbs quickly in the skin because it is considered an emollient that soothes and softens the skin. For more information regarding this ingredient, read https://thedermreview.com/cyclopentasiloxane/.

Glycerin is a moisturizing compound found in soaps, moisturizers & setting sprays/facial mists. I also buy pure glycerin from the drugstore khổng lồ make my own facial mist. It is also an ingredient commonly used in skin care products.

Propylene Glycol is a type of glycol that I used in cosmetics as a hydrating ingredient. Some controversy surrounded this ingredient because some claim that it is a strong skin sensitizer; và that it is really just antifreeze. It is also said to be the main ingredient in brake và hydraulic fluid. However, the amount of propylene glycol used in cosmetics is really small; & it does not pose a threat khổng lồ health and safety of consumers.

Titanium Dioxide is an “inert earth mineral used as a thickening, whitening, lubricating, and sunscreen ingredient in cosmetics. Itprotects skin from UVA và UVB radiationand is considered no risk of skin sensitivity. Because it’s gentle,titanium dioxide is a great sunscreen active for sensitive, redness-prone skin. It’s great for use around the eyes, as it is highly unlikely to cause stinging.” (https://www.paulaschoice.com/ingredient-dictionary/sunscreen-actives/titanium-dioxide.html) Titanium dioxide nanoparticles were also found khổng lồ be safe to lớn use on the skin.

2. Bottom Ingredients

Methylparaben and Butylparaben are kinds of paraben, which is an ingredient that has received a lot of controversy in the past years. Parabens are preservatives that have been used in a variety of beauty products for a long time; but they have also been highly criticized and, in some cases, condemned for use in cosmetics because of their alleged negative effects on the skin và their other controversial uses. Overall, studies about parabens are inconclusive about whether they are beneficial or harmful for the skin; and companies continue khổng lồ use a small amount of it in some of their products.

Aluminum Hydroxide is a size of aluminum; and according khổng lồ cosmeticsinfo.org, this ingredient is used in many types of cosmetics & personal care products including makeup and eye makeup products, lipstick, cleansing products, lotions, moisturizers, hair conditioners, other skin care products and suntan products. In cosmetics, it is used as an opacifying agent và as a skin-protectant.

Tocopherol is a khung of the entire fat soluble vitamin E molecule. This is one of the highly-rated và most popular skin care ingredients; because vi-ta-min E (especially in its natural form) is a good antioxidant.

Silica is a synthetic ingredient used as an absorbent powder và thickening agent. It also improves the consistency of makeup products by improving the distribution of pigments & preventing them from settling.

Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria Flower Extract) is from the chamomile flower. According khổng lồ paulaschoice.com, chamomile has antioxidant properties; & studies show that it has skin-soothing properties và other benefits as well. However, there were adverse responses lớn chamomile reported among those who are also sensitive or allergic khổng lồ other plants in the daisy family. So if you’re allergic lớn plants in the daisy family, you may need to lớn avoid products that contain chamomile.

LONGEVITY – The Maybelline concealer has decent lasting power. It can last all day on my skin with minimal creasing as long as I phối it with powder. In my experience, it also does not get patchy or blotchy, even when I’m staying outdoors all day or performing outdoor activities. It wears off nicely without settling on creases và lines on the face. This concealer does not have SPF so it can be worn for events where you will be taking flash photos.

VARIETY – In the Philippines, the Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer has 7 shades. (Fair, Light, Sand, Medium, Caramel, Honey and Deep) However, originally, the Fit Me! Concealer comes in 18 shades. I think most Filipinos can find a shade from the range that Maybelline Philippines offers; but I still hope they can bring all the shades here in the Philippines because I am sure more people with different skin tones can enjoy this sản phẩm if they can find the shade that will match them perfectly.

VALUE FOR MONEY – This concealer retails for PHP 249 in the Philippines. Sometimes, it goes on sale for PHP 199. This is a really good price point because other concealers, even other drugstore ones, are way more expensive. If you are looking for a low-maintenance, everyday concealer, you can never go wrong with the Fit Me! concealer from Maybelline.
