Hello, my lovely people! I’m back again with another product review. If you have read my older Maybelline Caramel Instant Age Rewind Concealer Review Post you would know that I love everything about this concealer except for their terrible shade range. They have nailed the formula of this concealer and the way it is packaged and gets dispensed. I love using this all over my face in the place of my foundation and any other full-coverage concealer would cake up but this one doesn’t. So without any further ado let’s get into the review of Maybelline Butterscotch Instant Age Rewind Concealer!
What Are The Product Claims?
This super-concentrated treatment concealer features a micro-corrector applicator to help instantly erase dark circles and fine lines.
This concealer for dark circles and fine lines instantly creates a radiant, refreshed-looking eye area. Infused with goji berry and Haloxyl™. Packaging may vary, what you receive may not be what is reflected on site.
HOW TO USE/APPLY-
Step 1. Twist collar of the Micro-Corrector Applicator in the direction of arrows until the concealer is visible on the sponge (it may take some turns on first use).
Step 2. Using the applicator, apply concealer directly to the under-eye area, blending in an outward motion.
Step 3. For extreme dark circles, apply the Neutralizer shade under concealer shade.
Step 4. To add a luminous touch, apply the Brightener shade to the inner corner of the eyes, cheek and brow bones, and bridge of the nose.
Available in 10 shades
PRICE- 620 INR

How Did The Product Work For Me?
The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer Butterscotch comes in a plastic twisty packaging with a micro-foam-like applicator. I like this packaging because you can twist and get even the last drop of the product out. The foam applicator helps evenly apply the product to the skin. The formula of this concealer is rich and creamy. The pigmentation of this concealer is mind-blowing. One light layer covers 80-90% of the blemishes and any other skin imperfections. If any other blemishes are still peeking through I will go in with a small detail brush to spot conceal those areas. The concealer sets itself to a beautiful skin-like, satin finish but I’d lightly set it in place with the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder or the Sephora Microsmooth Powder.
You can even easily cover tattoos with this gorgeous concealer. I use this particular shade to brighten the center of my face so I use it sparingly unlike the Caramel shade which is my closest match so I go ham with it. This concealer stays put all day without creasing or budging which is a great plus because since I live in a hot humid place I don’t like products that slip and slide around my face. This concealer is a dream to blend even though it is full coverage it doesn’t settle into any fine lines or look caked up. It lightly smooths out the texture of the skin as well. And the best part is it didn’t break me out.
Now the not-so-nice part: Maybelline and other brands know very well that India is a diverse country with a huge spectrum of complexions. Here you can find people with very pale skin tones to extremely rich darker skin tones to everything in between yet this brand chose to launch only 10 shades (9 of them were just different shades of beige) which is not shocking at this point because every single brand is doing the same thing to us for years yet we suck it up and still proceed to buy their products and put money in their pockets.
As mentioned earlier, I’m a light-medium complexioned person and I had to go with the darkest shade from the entire range because the other 9 shades were extremely pale shades of beige on me. Imagine if you’re someone a little darker than me you cannot find a shade that matches your complexion. If I tan a little bit even Caramel would look light on me. Even in this age and time, a huge part of the population is neglected by brands like this and not everyone has the ability to go get themselves matched at MAC or Bobbi Brown counters. Brands need to do a better job at being inclusive because we are all starting to notice their bigotry.
Do I Recommend Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Butterscotch Concealer?
The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Butterscotch Concealer is an amazing product formula but the shade range is beyond disappointing.
