Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I thought I would do a product review on two different Maybelline concealers. Being made by the same brand I thought they would be similar, but they aren’t all that really. There is the Fit Me concealer and the Better Skin concealer. I have tried both several times and I feel like I have formed my opinion.
The Maybelline Fit Me concealer is $5.48 at Walmart. The Maybelline Better Skin concealer is $7.82 at Walmart. This may not seem like a huge price difference, or maybe it does, but what really matters is the quality. Drugstore makeup is hard to shop for sometimes because it’s not always the best. And the products that are more expensive deceive you because you think they will be good, but they end not not being the best. Concealers is one of the most tricky makeup products I have ever shopped for. Finding a shade is difficult, they are sometimes tacky or drying, and sometimes they just don’t work. So quality is definitely more important to the price.
Texture is one of the most important things for me in a concealer. I need something that is hydrating and smooth. In this case, the Fit Me concealer steals the show. The Better Skin is not terrible, but in terms of which has the best texture, I would go with the Fit Me. Also, in terms of texture, I think the Fit Me concealer blends better. The Better Skin is kind of stiff and more difficult to work with. Again, that’s not to say it’s a terrible concealer, I just think compared to the Fit Me it doesn’t match.
Packaging matters as well. And to show that I am not biased towards one concealer over the other, I will say the Better Skin concealer has a better applicator. They are both similar, but the Better Skin one is thicker and applies product easier. I just prefer a thicker applicator when it comes to concealer. They both have similar packaging, other than the shape, but I don’t think the shape really matters.
As far as shade range goes, I think I like the Better Skin selection better. The lightest shade of the Fit Me collection is darker than my skin (I know it’s strange). I want something my skin tone or lighter for under my eyes. But the Fit Me concealer is still a great under eye concealer and I still use it.
When it comes down to it, if I had to choose one I would choose the Fit Me concealer. Other than the fact that the applicator is smaller and the shade range isn’t great, it is a great concealer. The Better Skin concealer is still great as well, but if I were to pick one over the other I would pick the Fit Me. In reality, I have both currently and mix them. I use them together and they are a perfect match. But if I can’t buy both I buy the Fit Me concealer because it is hydrating and smooth and does exactly what I need it to do.
