Maybelline Master Camo Colour Correcting Pen ($10.96 CAD) in Apricot is a pure pigment cream that is intended to be used under the eye to counteract the appearance of discoloration.
The shape of the packaging is just as interesting as the product is. It comes in a twist up pen that y dispenses out the product through a fuzzy dome shaped applicator:
Given how pigmented this product is, I was really worried when I initially saw the applicator because my first reaction was that this was going to get everywhere! However, there is a tiny little hole in the center of the applicator where the product is dispensed out of and because the hole it’s so small, the product is controlled and allows you to apply it with extreme precision.
Once I dispense the product out I dab it under my eye area and then use the applicator (with no new product on it) to spread the product around. LESS IS MORE is KEY for this product as I continue to reiterate how pigmented this product is.
The shade is a bright yet deep apricot shade that is creamy but opaque in nature. You can only blend this out so much before it sets and you have to work around it. Good news is, despite how bright and intimidating the colour is, product lays underneath foundation and concealer like a dream. It doesnt add any extra texture to your foundations and concealers, which is what I love the most about this.
You may be used to the fact that any amount of blending for makeup diffuses the impact and makes things look better. That’s not the case with this product: you can only blend it so much before it sets and you have to work around it. My tip is to add this product only to the areas that need it and blend it out right away to ensure you cover the entire problem area. Be prepared that you will look like a zombie, but that’s ok! When worn under foundation and concealer, its truly untraceable. Finally I’ve found a product that substantially diminishes the look of my under eye bags!
I love the product and am so excited that it’s a drug store brand. This is unquestionably beauty swatched approved.
