Maybelline Instant Anti-Age The Eraser Eye Concealer Light, review

Hello my lovely readers today’s post is reviewing a much-raved product in the blogosphere – the Maybelline Instant Anti-Age The Eraser Eye Concealer in Light. This is one of the almost cult products from Maybelline, one that was very praised and coveted in the beauty bloggers’ world. Of course until recently it was not available in Romania (you could only buy it from on-line international sites or from abroad); this has changed, you can find it in Romania in stores so I thought I would share with you my impressions on it.


It is an anti-aging concealer with an active formula with Goji Berry and Haloxyl that reduces the look of puffiness and shadows while fading the appearance of under-eye circles. Its special micro-corrector applicator micro-fills and smoothes the fine lines under the eyes for a fresh, younger appearance.

Directions for use : Use the applicator to apply concealer directly to under-eye area, blending in an outward motion. Wipe off the excess eye concealer with dry tissues only. Do not wet the applicator.


It comes in a 6.8 ml transparent bottle and has a valability of 6 months. In order to get the product out you twist the collar of the applicator until the product comes out of the sponge (it is recommended to wash the sponge regularly to avoid clogging and keep the hygiene).

Using the sponge applicator makes the product very easy to use and travel-friendly (it does not require a brush). It has a slightly creamy texture that does not dry the under-eye area but it can crease into the little wrinkles if not set with a powder. For me this concealer must be set with powder in order to last and avoid creasing. It has a good coverage but for a natural effect it must be used sparingly. You can see its coverage on my dark circles below :

 sorry for the lighting – it changed from the before to the after

I did not have any eye reactions to it like itching or watering of the eyes. You can see the ingredients below :


You can find it at the Maybelline New York Make-up Boutiques in Promenada Mall and Băneasa Shopping City and online at the price of aprox. 35 ron/8 pounds.

All in all, the Maybelline Instant Anti-Age The Eraser Eye Concealer in Light is a good eye concealer that keeps the under eye area hydrated while providing a good coverage. On me, it tended to crease and disappear during the day if not set with a powder. I still prefer the long-lasting concealers that provide a full coverage. It is a good product but not “the one” for me. From me it gets a -A ( it does not provide the full coverage I want, it tends to crease and disappear during the day if not set with a powder). Tell me Have you tried it ? What are your impressions on it ? Until next time,   Love, M
