Maybelline Age Rewind | Worth The Hype?

maybelline age rewind concealer

This is definitely a concealer that I feel like most people would have heard of if you follow the beauty industry even a little. It’s always sold out and so when I finally had the chance to pick up the legendary Maybelline Age Rewind concealer, I did!

I got mine in the shade Light as I like a bit of a brighter under eye area. In terms of the packaging I like that it’s a twist but I’m not sure about the sponge. The main reason is that it’s not easy to clean and so bacteria would just multiply like crazy on it. But aside from that I think it distributes the concealer evenly through out the sponge, allowing for easy application. You couldn’t however blend with it as you constantly just get more product on the skin.

The coverage this gives is really good. It definitely helps to hide my dark circles and the veins on the lids too. It does start to dry pretty quickly however and so it can be a little hard to blend. My biggest issue with this concealer however is that it sticks to my dry patches like crazy. It emphasizes the dry skin I have under the eyes and down the cheeks so much and makes it so obvious that it looks ridiculous. Regardless of how much I blend it seems to just cling to these patches.

I’m not sure if I got a dodgy one as I haven’t heard a review like this before but it was definitely a let down. Although it’s lightweight, it is hard to blend and it does stick to my dry skin. So for me, the hype was certainly not worth it.

Have you tried it before? What did you think?

Love,

Sofia

      Yeah it’s a bit annoying you can’t clean it! It is very pigmented so definitely check it out 🙂 xx

    Ah so interesting to hear what you thought of this. I don’t like the sound of it very much so I’ll probably give it a miss!

    I’ve definitely heard and saw that product A LOT. I’ve been wanting to try it but I never got myself to actually buy it. It’s great I stumbled upon your post, I think I’ll just look for another concealer 😀

    This has just been released here so I’ve never tried it before. Your review made me curious to pick it up, though, and see if we’ll have the same reaction to it.

    I remember I used to love this concealer a lot! But then I couldn’t find it again, as you said, it was always sold out! I have been thinking about getting it again just to see if it is as good as I remember 😛

    Thanks for the review!

    I’ve never tried this concealer but I’ve heard great things about it. I’m not buying concealers anytime soon because I love the Tarte Shape Tape too much!

    I’ve tried this before and really liked it, but I’m not sure how I’d feel now that my eye area is dryer. Totally agree with you on the sponge, I wish they changed the applicator to something more hygienic!

    Shame you didn’t like this product as much as others, I don’t think it would be very good for me if it sticks to dry areas as I have a lot of those, also, the sponge is bugging me a bit!

      Yeah the sponge definitely isn’t ideal! And yeah, it was so unfortunate, I’m trying to use really hydrating skincare at the moment and then I might try it again but yeah! xx

    Hi Sofia! This concealer is my holy grail and love it so much. It does dry pretty fast on the face and might not be creamy enough for your skin type. Maybe you can try to use a bit more moisturizer under the eye and then apply this. Who knows it won’t stick on the dry patches. Hope that helps.

      Hi Nathalie, I have tried that and I still find it sticks! I don’t have super dry skin either so I’m not sure!! Maybe just got a bad one! 🙂 xx

  12. August 18, 2017 / 3:13 pm

    I have never tried this concealer but I have heard of it many times. I’m glad I skipped this purchase after seeing your review. Definitely don’t want a concealer that sticks to my dry patches.

    I used to use this concealer but also found it pretty drying. I’m now using creamier products!
