Maybelline New York Master Camo Concealer Reviews

Here's what our Review Crew® thought of these colour correcting concealers

The product

Most beauty addicts can’t live without their trusty concealer. The new wave of concealers – colour correctors – go one step further to helping us achieve a flawless, filter-free complexion by counteracting any unwanted discolouration in our skin tone. Maybelline New York Master Camo Concealer is available in five shades: green to nix redness, yellow to brighten, blue for anti-sallowness, and apricot and red to hide dark circles for light to medium skin tones and deep skin tones respectively.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Maybelline New York Master Camo Concealer to a panel of women aged 18 to 39 who had a variety of skin concerns they wanted to conceal, including redness, dullness, sallowness and dark circles. 

The lowdown

Here's what the Review Crew® loved about the colour correcting concealers:

How well the green concealer counteracted redness: For most of our Review Crew® members, the green concealer was their favourite of all the coloured formulas. They loved how it effectively counterbalanced redness around the nose and cheeks. 

How convenient it was to keep in their handbag: Lots of colour correcting concealers come in a palette with various colours in one, which has its benefits but can be bulky to carry around for touch-ups on-the-go. Reviewers found that these individual pens meant they could just take the shade they needed with them when they walked out the door in the morning.

How easy to blend the formula was: Largely due to the handy built-in flocked tip applicator, members were pleasantly surprised by how easy the formula was to blend into skin, even given its thick, creamy consistency.

Good to know: A little product goes a long way. Lots of reviewers commented that it took them some practice to figure out how much product they needed, so we recommend starting off with just a small amount and build coverage as needed.

The verdict

"These pens have the most amazing formula! Super creamy and hydrating while being really pigmented as well. The applicator tips are shaped well for eye and nose contours…I also found they had great staying power and seemed to wear really well under makeup."

"I had a bad experience with colour correctors in the past so was keen to see if this would change my opinion. It took me a bit to get the right amount and to blend it well but when I did I was sold. I used the green the most…as I have trouble with some red patches on my face. It's super easy to use and I can see myself buying this again."
Review Crew® member
"Overall, I enjoyed using these pens and I did think they each served their purpose well. But the best thing about these colour correcting pens were that they were so easy to use! I found the click stick much easier to use than other colour correcting products I've used before, which tend to be drier cream-concealer type products in pots."
