Maybelline Cover Stick Concealer in Medium Beige, CAD$9.99

I bought this at the beginning the year for a trip to Great Wolf Lodge, Niagara Falls. I wasn’t aware of Maybelline’s animal testing status back then; and bought this because it was a cheap drug store concealer which happened to be waterproof. I wasn’t willing to spend more than $10 on a product I only needed for a few days, so I gave this one a try.

I got this in medium beige and was I glad I did. It went on lighter than expected, even though this was the medium shade. I found this to be extremely drying, and set so quickly that it didn’t allow you much time to blend properly. It might have to do with it being waterproof (which tends to be drying); but for the undereye area, which it claimed was good for, it creased within just an hour before I even got into the pool.

If you have really oily skin and need a waterproof concealer for blemishes, then this is ok. But if you use this for undereye dark circles, this is horrible! I ended up not using it other than the first time, so the $9.99 (plus taxes) became a total waste.
