I have heard a lot of hype about both of these concealer's and first discovered them through the gorgeous Nicole Guerriero on You Tube, she always raves about them and thought I would give them both a try to see what all the hype is about, so here's my first impression on both concealers.
Have you guys tried this, let me know your thoughts in the comments or through one of my social media platforms.
The MAC retails for £15.50 for 9ml and comes in 16 shades I opted for NC15 and Maybelline retails for £7.99 for 6.8ml and comes in two shades Light and Nude, I went for the Light.
MAC Pro Longwear comes in a glass tube that has a hygienic pump dispenser.
The Maybelline Eraser Eye comes in a plastic tube with a twist applicator that comes out of a small dome shaped sponge.
Upon application the MAC Concealer felt smooth and creamy, the consistency is thin and you need the tiniest amount, half a pump is adequate as a little goes a long way. This conceals and highlights well and the colour is buildable, it feels very light on the skin, I applied this with my fingers.
When I initially twisted the Maybelline concealer the colour looked quite orange for the lightest shade, but it came out lighter and highlighted well when you applied it to the under eye. This concealer is a little thicker than the MAC and I love the dome sponge applicator it's so soft around the delicate eye area.
They both lasted well throughout the day, but for me the Maybelline lasted a little longer because of the thicker consistency whereas the MAC wore of a bit by the later evening and my dark circles started to show again, I think this would need another layer for better longevity.
This was a close one to call as I they are extremely similar in delivering the same aim to conceal dark under eye circles, each with there own pro's and con's. I love the Pro Longwear for it's light consistency, great shade selection and hygienic pump, but I think the Eraser Eye has won it for me due to it's affordability, longevity and soft sponge applicator.
I award the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer 3.5 out of 5 and the Maybelline The Eraser Eye 4.5 out of 5.
