My Review: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup



What is It?


The Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup by Maybelline claims to instantly erases fine lines, creases and age spots with the first anti-aging makeup combining the patented Micro-Corrector Applicator and a breakthrough formula with active ingredients.



Claims/Features:

  • Super-concentrated formula with goji berry and collagen tightens & improves skin elasticity.
  • SPF 18 sunscreen helps protect skin from sun damage. 
  • Doesn't just cover; after 8 weeks of use reduces imperfections without makeup on.
  • The Eraser is protected with an anti-microbial system. 
  • Patented Micro-Corrector Applicator micro-fills and smoothes imperfections on skin's surface.

Price/Availability:

  • $8.99-$10.99 at most drugstores/grocery stores (Publix, Kroger, Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, etc)
  • £9.99 at Boots/Boots.co.uk

Dupe For:

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

Things to Rave About:

1) Feels and Acts Like a Primer: The texture of this foundation is very slick and silky, sliding effortlessly onto the skin and creating a smooth, even base.
2) Lightweight: This foundation is the closest thing you can get to a tinted moisturizer without being labeled as one. It has a lotion like feel that is extremely liquid-like and even a tad moisturizing. 

3) Beneficial Ingredients:  The additions of goji berry and collagen create a 2 in 1 feature by permitting this foundation to not only perfect skin with coverage, but also treat it invisibly for hours once worn.

Things to Rant About:

1) Wears off Easily: Due to the watery texture, it is difficult for this foundation to stick and stay put onto the skin. The foundation never dries and turns matte but rather remains in a wet-looking condition.
2) May Turn Skin Oily: Due to the silky, dewy finish of this foundation, oily skin types should stay away, as a mix of this foundation and natural oils will create a greasy mess.

Is it For You?:

Yes, if you have dry skin and crave a hint of moisture and dewiness . No, if you have oily skin and need a matte, dry finish.

Ratings:

  • Price: 8/10
  • Performance: 7/10
  • Packaging/Applicator: 9/10
  • Durability/Quality: 6/10
  • Repurchase? No

Have you tried out this foundation? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
