Maybelline Eraser Eye fans here in Ireland have been waiting way too long for these to launch!
The Maybelline Eraser Eye Neutralizer and Brightener Concealers are now available in Boots and Superdrug. I also spotted the Brightener one in Mc Cabes Pharmacy on my hunt for them too!
It took me a long time to warm to the original. I realise now it was because the lightest colour wasn’t light enough for my skin tone.
The consistency and coverage is on point though! I also like the sponge tipped applicator, I know it’s not for everyone. These are not only meant to conceal. They’re also meant to treat the under eye area too and help with puffiness.
Both of these have been out in the States for literally years, I just didn’t think they were going to release them on these shores. But, low and behold they crept onto our Maybelline stands and I for one am very happy about it. If you follow me on Snapchat (shameless plug, I’m just Beautynook over there), you’ll know I went to three different Boots to source both of the colours! That is makeup dedication right there. Shout out to John for chauffeuring me around 🙂
The first new shade on stands is a Neutralizer.
This as the name would suggest is for neutralizing any discolouration you might have under the eyes.
It has a yellow undertone to cancel darkness, but is also quite light to brighten things up too.
The second on is a Brightener.
This, like the Neutralizer is quite light in colour with more of a pink tone.
This is meant to conceal but also bring light to the undereye and by doing that make you look more awake.
I’ve actually been using both of these together, just because I have them though. I wouldn’t suggest you need both of them in your life. Like the normal Maybelline Eraser Eye, they have a really light consistency so you can build up the coverage without the product caking up under the eyes. The formula sets really quickly so you have to work fast as you blend. I’ve been using the Neutralizer first to counteract darkness. Then, adding the Brightener over top for some extra coverage and lightness.
The new Maybelline Eraser Eye shades are available in stores and online now. Here is the Boots website link to them if you want to have a look. I picked mine up in Boots for €13.79 a piece. I know Superdrug were doing a really good deal on them though if you are looking to sniff out a bargain 🙂
