Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer £9.99

Nothing makes me want a product more than a product I can't get my hands on in the UK.. words cannot even describe how much I want the new Lorac Pro 2 Palette. Another product I'd been lusting after was the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer. I was very lucky to receive the 'Fair' shade in my international beauty swap however I really wanted to try the 'Neutralizer' which is only available to purchase in the US. I was very excited when I saw my favourite eBay seller (they sell lots of US exclusive products) stock both the Neutralizer and Brightener shade so I snapped them up for £9.99 each (now sold out but available here) which I thought was pretty reasonable considering the standard Maybelline Eraser Concealer retails for £7.99 at Boots and Superdrug.

The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer (what a name?!) is designed to be a treatment concealer that instantly erases dark circles, fine lines and reduce puffiness and contains Goji Berry and Haloxyl. The Neutralizer shade is specifically targeted for those who suffer with dark circles, and has a slight yellow tone to it to help counteract under-eye circles. The packaging is really good and practical in a plastic tube, with a fluffy sponge on the top which the concealer dispenses through which you then use to apply to the skin.

I was worried that the Neutralizer shade might have been too dark for my pale skintone, but luckily it blends into the skin really well. In terms of its neutralising benefits.. I can't say I'm blown away. The concealer does minimise the darkness slightly, but no better than my Body Shop Lightening Touch Concealer. The formula is quite thin and watery so it doesn't offer very much coverage so to be honest, I would prefer to just use an under-eye concealer instead.

Meet My September Advertisers...



For the month of September, my Exclusive Advertiser has been the lovely Georgie of Bean's Beauty Blog. My favourite post of Georgie's this month was the review of the new Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur in Cool Rose.. it's definitely made me want to try it as I didn't like the original Baby Skin.


So I'm Georgie, or Bean as my pals call me.
I'm a bubbly, cat loving, all things makeup obsessed, blonde from Norfolk.
I started my blog only a few months ago, however I love writing and trying products and it has become a big hobby. I'm a country girl at heart, often in wellies, however I'm also a beauty and skin care junkie, with a passion for writing a review
If you would like to stop by you're very welcome, grab a cuppa tea, and pull up a pew, everyone is always welcome in Bean's world. X

My first Large Advertiser for September was Lis of Elisabeth Rilatt. I really loved Lis's Friday Night OOTD.. her makeup looked amazing, and I have serious envy of her cheekbones.

Hi, my name’s Elisabeth (Lis for short!) and my blog (www.elisabethrilatt.com) is a real mish-mash of beauty, fashion and lifestyle in no kind of order!  I’m honest and love a high end purchase as much as I do a bargain.  I have a Zara addiction that features heavily on my blog! just pre-warning you! I’m fairly new to blogging but really enjoying it :)

Next up is Vanessa, who blogs over at California Citizen. Vanessa reviewed the IT Cosmetics My Sculpted Face Contour Palette, and it looks amazing.. I so wish we had IT Cosmetics here in the UK.



My name is Vanessa and I’m a 21-year college student from sunny California. I created The California Citizen to write about beauty, fashion, fitness, and share my reviews on products. I’m an avid reader and as a self-proclaimed beauty junkie, I love reading anything written about beauty and skin care from doctors and dermatologist. As biochemistry major I hope to enter medical school for dermatology. Join me in this amazing journey as I discover beauty secrets and decipher beauty myths, all while learning ways to be more beautiful inside as well as out.

Georgina is my next Large September Advertiser, and Georgina blogs over at Makeup-Pixi3. I really loved Georgina's review on the new Superdrug Beauty Store in Cardiff.. with a pretty purple glitter manicure. Exciting news... Georgina is having her first baby within the next week or so, so I want to say a massive congratulations and good luck to her :)) xxx


Hi, my name is Georgina, I'm a 30-something beauty (and mummy) blogger. I started blogging 2.5 years ago and haven't looked back since. I mostly blog about reviews, also favourites and helpful posts like about SEO and Google Analytics (SEO is my day job). I love a good chat on Twitter, especially if it involves beauty talk, cat chat or talking about music (mostly metal!). Please feel free to pop over and say Hi, I always reply to comments and tweets and try to return the favour if you leave a blog comment :)

Next up we have Jaina of Which Beauty Box UK. I always love looking on Jaina's blog to see her reviews of Memebox's as I'm a massive fan, but the adorable #51 My Cute Wishlist has to be the nicest box I've seen them create.


 My name is Jaina, a 30 something year old who has a love affair with beauty boxes.  My main objective when I created this blog was to offer my readers a one stop shop where they can find monthly reviews on the most popular beauty subscription boxes available in the UK and in the US. The list is simply endless and definitely takes my love for all things beauty to the next level.

My next Large Advertiser is Laura who blogs over at Laurzrah. I fell in love with Laura's Tom Ford post.. have you ever seen makeup so beautiful?! That quad is stunning!


I'm Laura, and Laurzrah is my little beauty brainchild. I have a particular penchant for expensive lipsticks. I will happily talk to anyone about makeup/skincare/nail polish all day, which is why I started my little blog. Frankly, my friends and family just don't care about the latest MAC collection, and they don't understand why one girl would need so many different shades of pink lipstick... It's ok, because if you're reading this then you must understand. I hope you hop over and come visit :)

The last of my large advertisers for September is Laura who blogs over at Tease Flutter Pout. Laura did a fab review of the Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Chocolate Palette.. it's such a gorgeous palette and an absolute steal at just £7.99.


Ahaarr my hearties! I'm Laura and I blog over at TeaseFlutterpout.com. With a love of beauty, life and random giggles. I hope you love reading as much as I love writing and sharing my thoughts with you! So come join the crew on my voyage through a sea of make up by checking out my blog and following me! Look forward to seeing you ( ps pirate talk is not necessary but always welcome lol)   Lots of love, Laura x
