I have heard, read and seen how people raved about this concealer. I took advantage from the L’oreal Warehouse Sales held at De Palma Hotel three weeks ago, you will know if you follow me in Instagram. One of the item that I have picked is Maybelline Pure Mineral Healthy Natural Concealer and it was only for MYR10.00, great bargain isn’t it?
‘Maybelline PURE MINERAL Healthy Natural Concealer is oil free and fragrance free. It never clogs pores and it provides all day natural coverage. Micro-minerals fully conceal imperfections and under-eye darkness, leaving you with naturally flawless, healthy looking skin.’ – Maybelline
It comes in doe foot applicator and picks up quite a bit of concealer. Each time when I were to use the concealer, I find that the amount of concealer is a little too much for me that I had to scuff some of the concealer at the brim of the tube., just to ensure that the excess is not wasted.
The shade I had picked is 01 which I believe is the fairest shade. Although I knew I might risk picking up the shade that can be too light for me, I had no choice because there was only one shade left in the warehouse. I remember how much I used to like their mineral foundation and I hope to like this concealer as much as I do with the foundation. The texture is creamy and thick but not drying. Once it is blended, it finishes powdery.
To use this concealer is easy, you could begin with make-up base or foundation ready face. It’s totally optional if you would like to wear the concealer alone or with foundation. Everyone can have their own preference.
- Step 1 – Apply the concealer on any imperfection that you want to conceal such as dark circles, redness and scars.
- Step 2 – Blend the concealer with fingers or brush to camouflage the imperfections.
- Step 3 – Set your face makeup with your favorite foundation powder.
I chose to wear only the concealer alone to test it’s ability. It brightens up my entire face evenly and the coverage is from medium to almost full.
Here is the test of after more than 9 hours. Although it doesn’t provide any oil controlling properties, I’m impressed how the coverage lasted so well. After more than 9 hours, the coverage may not seem as good as I freshly applied the concealer but I could tell that the coverage stayed well although it did fade a tiny bit. Another plus point, that it doesn’t dry my skin out.

This concealer does provide good coverage especially if you just need a quick touch of concealer and easy to travel around with it. As for me, I think I quite like this concealer as it is not too drying for my skin and love the coverage that last very well. This concealer is oil and fragrance free which is suitable for all skin types. Maybe I should opt for a shade darker as 01 is slightly too fair for my skin. It does contain paraben and silica.
