Review -- Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer

There are times when I think my colors cosmetics are my absolute favorite types of makeup products -- it's hard to imagine getting more excited than I do over a fabulous new eyeshadow palette or great new lipstick formula.

But then every time, new complexion products come out and I'm practically tripping over myself to rush out and buy them.

Which is why I was pretty eager to try the new Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer.

That's because I haven't really been able to find a drugstore concealer that I could use both under my eyes and on blemishes or discolorations on my face -- it seems like if one's thin and creamy enough for under the eyes, it doesn't have enough coverage for the blemishes, and if I find one that's thick enough to cover blemishes well, it creases like nobody's business under the eyes.

The Master Conceal seems to strike a good compromise between the consistency needed to work under the eyes and the coverage necessary to hide redness and other discolorations.

That's because while the concealer has a fairly thick texture that provides good coverage, it actually thins out once you blend it in.

So under the eyes, it hides my mild dark circles with ease without going on too thickly and creasing.

On the face, I wouldn't say it offers full coverage -- probably more like medium -- but you can easily build it up to hide whatever you need to. I recently had a pretty nasty red spot on my chin and two layers of the Master Conceal made it disappear.  I'd recommend starting with a small amount, though, and only adding more if necessary because a little can go a long way.

It also has a matte finish and dries down pretty quickly, so you could probably get away without setting it in the winter. I still set it under my eyes because I always do with any concealer, but if your under eye area is extremely dry, you might be able to skip that step.

The concealer comes in a convenient squeeze tube that makes it really easy to squeeze out the right amount. You also get 0.4 fl. oz. of product, which seems pretty generous for approximately $8.99 at most drugstores.

There's also good news is you've got fair skin -- the Fair shade (10) is actually pretty fair. It's a pretty perfect match for my skin (and most days, I feel like it's even harder to find a concealer to match that it is to find a foundation). But there are only five shades in total, so there might be a color match for everyone.

I highly recommend this concealer if you're looking for a multi-purpose product that can hide just about everything you'd need it to.

Have you tried the Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal? Does it work for you?
