Maybelline instant Anti Age "The Eraser" eye concealer

Since starting work I’ve noticed a change in my eyes; I look more tired. I miss the days as a student when I could lay in till 9/10 after a late night, now I am renounced to having an actually body clock and trying to becoming a morning person (something I definitely am not!). As a consequences of the early mornings I now am prone to dark circles under my eyes, so I've been on the lookout for a make up solution to cover these up! I know I could just get some more sleep and it would probably help but I struggle to fall asleep before 11 and annoyingly whenever I know I have to be up early I somehow wake up long before my alarm! Silly body! So a make up solution will have to do for now!

The Maybelline instant Anti Age "The Eraser" eye concealer is a product I have heard lots about on the Internet, especially in America as they got it long before it worked it's way over to the UK. It's basically a concealer designed specifically to brighten and conceal your under eyes to cover up dark circles and help with the puffiness that seems to come hand in hand with being tired! I actually struggled to find this product in the UK for a few months, then it popped up in one of my local Boots, so I had to buy it.

I like the packaging of this, it's very compact and the clear click on top will stop it making a mess in your make up bag. On my first use it took me a while to actually get the product up to the sponge top, I thought I'd picked up a dud one! But no, after maybe 40 clicks it was up! (may be an exaggeration, I didn't count!). I love the fact that you control the amount of product to use with clicks, it definitely prevents wastage as one click will do. 

I know many germ-a-phobes won't like the applicator as you have no way of cleaning it, but I think as long as your face is clean every time you use it you should be okay. In fact I'm sure I read somewhere that it's made from an anti bacterial sponge material - don't hold me on that though! 

You apply the product straight out of the applicator- I tend to dab it on rather than use a sweeping motion as I don't like dragging eye skin around too much. I then use my ring finger to dab and blend it in- on a side note it's good to use your ring finger when blending things on your eyes as it's the one that you can't apply a lot of pressure using.

The eraser eye concealer only comes in two shades in the UK; light and nude. I purchased light as I'm quite fair skinned and I wanted a brightening effect. The consistency is very light and blends effortlessly. Coverage is very good considering how light this product feels on the skin and I don't find it to be greasy.

I personally love this concealer, it definitely helps to make me look more awake and it covers my dark under eyes perfectly. It lasts quite a few hours without settling in creases or fine lines.

You can pick up Maybelline’s ‘The Eraser’ Perfect & Cover concealer in Boots and Superdrug, although I think it’s a little hard to find at the moment as I'd been keeping an eye out for it for a while before I stumbled across one! It's priced at £7.99.
