The mineral makeup craze is booming – so much so that even our drugstore pals Maybelline couldn’t help but get in on the action! Let’s try out the new rating system on Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer.
For a drugstore product, I was very impressed with this concealer’s coverage. This baby blotted out my dark undereye circles with the greatest of ease!
While it was thick and matte, the finish wasn’t amazing and was almost grainy-looking. Still, I thought it made my skin look more natural than most concealers do, and it blended easily (at least to my skin in color Fair: Light 0-1).
shade variety: 1/5
This is where this concealer falters. They don’t offer a huge selection of shades, and darker-skinned girls won’t have to be too far down on the color spectrum to be peeved by the few shades available.
staying power: 2/5
Ouch. While this isn’t the least lasting concealer I’ve tried *cough*CoverGirl*cough* it won’t win any awards for long wear. It barely made it through two hours of work, though albeit I wasn’t wearing powder on top of it. My bad, I suppose.
The verdict: 6/10 – Great for natural-looking coverage, but it won’t make your skin look fabulous or wear all day.
