For many, the scope of drugstore deals has its limits, face makeup out of its reach. Concealer too thin, foundation too tinted, bronzer too orange – these beauty faux-pas tend to run amuck among frugal finds. It’s no wonder, then, that makeup shoppers would prefer to shell out more cash for Sephora-approved brands, willing to spend an extra $20 on foundation that’s more likely to match their skin-tone.
Sure, this drugstore stigma has its pretenses – we’ve all cursed the $7 bronzer that turned us the perfect shade of oompa-loompa – but it’s not a universal rule.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer is that rare breed of drugstore concealer that’s actually dependable. No, it’s not a carbon copy of Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer, but with a $22 price difference, it’ll do. Its sponge-tip makes for easy application, its full range of shades allows for personal choice, and its silky formula facilitates fluent blending.
And for $10, you’ll actually be able to afford it. You’re welcome, bank account.
