Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer USA Version in 'Fair'

USA Fair Age Rewind Concealer Maybelline UK stockist, Amazon

A while ago, I tried out the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealers from Boots. I bought the lightest shade, but on my natural NW13 skin, it looked utterly horrific. It was very orange in tone and I took it back to the store. Story of my life. I always feel the struggle as a fair person trying to find products that actually look good with my pale skin. Even though I mostly fake tan, it's still great to have a product that you can use when you're pale! I also use this as a highlight too when I tan, so I like a win-win product for me. I decided to research just why the UK were lacking at least 3 other shades in this conealer and wanted to try a US version, so got on Amazon and ordered myself one! I paid around the same price as you'd pay in the UK, minus the swanky Boots offers. It came from the USA and took around a week, maybe a little more! I got it here on Amazon if you want it!

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Fair Swatches USA UK VERSION

As you can see, it's very fair, lacks the orange tones and compliments my skin tone. I'm around NW20/25 in this photo. In my opinion, this is a really great buy if you find the darker UK shades far too dark/orange for your skin tone. I know I'll definitely be using this a lot more now as I do love the formula of this concealer and it doesn't cake under my eyes. I hope this helps some of you out there who have pale girl problems and need the lighter version of this concealer! I don't understand why it's not out in the UK in a wider variety of colours, but at least you can grab this shade on Amazon now!

Do you guys ever struggle with finding the right shade in the drugstore? How do you combat it?

  1. The shade struggle is so real, I have the opposite problem, I always find the nicest formulas and makeup bits and they never come in a dark enough shade haha! I'm constantly searching alternatives or looking for stuff in america too!

    1. Yes! Darker skin tones must be nightmare for to buy for, especially in the drugstore! I think LA girl do some good concealers you might want to try out :) xx

  2. I struggle so much with concealer/foundation shades because I'm so pale - this is so exciting you've found this in Fair because I've wanted to try it for so long but wasn't going to buy the 'lightest' shade from Boots because I knew it'd be too dark!

  4. I had no idea you could purchase a lighter shade of this from the USA until I put up my haul blog post including it. Luckily though, the lighter shade available in the UK suits me fine.
    I tend to struggle finding a good match for my skin colour in BB creams. It's so strange but lots of drugstore ones end up looking so orange on me, not cool. x
