Review: Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Healthy Natural Concealer


Hello girls, I am back with another review~ This time it is a product from Maybelline called Clear Smooth Minerals Healthy Natural Concealer. Yep, I know, sounds really complex huh? They should definitely rename this as I keep forgetting its name just because it's too long. I've been a fan of Maybelline products especially their mascaras and lip balms. So, I decided to give their concealer a try. Let's get onto it!

You might know this as the Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer. Well, that's what I found on Maybelline website. I don't know why but for some reason they renamed it to Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Healthy Natural Concealer in Indonesia. They also originally comes in 3 different shades, but oh well only 1 shade is available here, medium-sand.




This concealer comes in a tube packaging like how lipglosses are, with soft doe foot applicator. The size is very similar to typical lipglosses so it is travel friendly. It is light and convenient to be brought around. However, it gets dirty easily and the product could get messy everywhere on its screw cap. So yeah, here are swatches.



Swatches show that this shade is actually a little darker than my skintone. However, when used on my face, it blends in with my skin really well and brightens my under eye a lot. Amazing isn't it?  It has a sort of yellowish/orangey tone to it that is really useful to counterattack the purple colour on dark circles. I love how it reduces my dark circles. Here, let me show you what I mean. Please pardon my ugly face, I didn't have the time to do full face makeup and for some reason, I don't know even know why, I didn't cover my acne scars on my forehead with the concealer. dumb.

Bare face, I only drew my eyebrows here.

Concealer on!

Blended~

Notice how it gives an awesome brightening effect to my under eyes area. I didn't use anything on the picture above except this concealer. I love how it just brightens my entire face and makes me look more awake. Oh, It has a thicker consistency than BB cream and gives medium coverage. It is really easy to blend, dries fast, and is really buildable. You have to be careful though not to use too many products because it could look cakey if not properly blended.

It is also very affordable, I can't remember how much I purchased this but it was surely under IDR 50k. Murah deh apalagi biasa tuh sering banget diskon di counter atau supermarket.

The only thing that I dislike from this concealer is that it is not sweat-proof. For me, it is important to use sweat-proof beauty products because it is extremely hot here almost everyday. Not that I am sweating often but when I do sweat, it wears off easily. But for the price, this product is definitely worth it.

What do you think?

  9. I SEE NO UGLY FACES IN THIS POST. (Uhm, your skin is still flawless without makeup??)
    I don't think we have this in Canada (or maybe we do?), but this does seem like something I'd like to try!
    (Wait though, do you use it for blemishes too or just as an undereye concealer?)

  14. If this concealer is not sweat-proof then it will make your skin oily.
