Better than Maybeline Age Rewind Concealer?
I was at the drugstore about a month ago and saw the Revlon Youth Fill + Blur Concealer and wondered if it was as good my favorite drugstore concealer, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. So, I decided to find out.
The Maybelline Concealer has a rather soft, sponge-like tip as the applicator. You twist the applicator until product appears, and swipe the concealer on where you need it. The Revlon concealer has a thinner, more dense sponge tip applicator. This helps with getting the product into all the nooks and crannies on my face. However, because it is more dense, it tends to be harder to apply and will move around the foundation underneath. You click a button on the end to dispense the product. The win here goes to Maybelline.
The coverage is the same on both products, but there is a slight difference in wear and settling into fine lines. I found the Revlon concealer to settle a bit more into fine lines than Maybelline did, and it didn't last quite as long either. However, both look pretty worn down after 8 hours. That's why I use it with Tarte's Shape Tape, but that's for a different post. Maybelline wins this category by a smidge.
Maybeline comes in six shades: fair, light, medium, honey, neutral, and brightening, while Revlon comes in six, as well: fair, light, light medium, medium, medium deep, and deep. In actuality, Maybelliene has four skin tone shades with two correctors, so it might be easier to find your perfect match in the Revlon line. Maybelline tends to pull more neutral to cool while revlon is a bit more yellow, at least in the shade I have. I prefer Revlon's color selection and tones.
Maybelline can be found at Ulta and drugstores and retails for between $7.49 - $9.99 for 0.2 fluid ounces. Revlon retails for $11.99 - $13.99 for 0.11 fluid ounces and is sold at similar locations. The clear winner here is Maybelline.
So, which is better?
Maybelline remains my favorite drugstore concealer. It looks a bit more smooth when applied under my eyes, lasts a bit longer, and costs less. However, if you struggle to find a shade that works with your skin tone and want a decent drugstore concealer, check out the Revlon concealer.
Hope you found this to be helpful.
