It’s only a few weeks since we saw the launch of their new tinted moisturiser, and if you’d like to find out more about the exciting new Maybelline Instant Perfector 4-in-1 Glow Makeup, keep on reading….
“Meet Maybelline New York’s 1st 4-in-1 makeup for a perfected glow look. Instant Perfector Glow gives skin the benefit of four products in one. Get the look of primer, concealer, highlighter and BB cream—all in one easy step.
It’s an illuminating formula that primes, conceals, highlights, and evens skin tone with light coverage. This do-it-all makeup has everything you need to perfect your look in an instant!”
The Maybelline Instant Perfector 4-in-1 Glow Makeup includes five different shades, and is said to give the transformation of the skin, of four products in one step. Working as a primer, concealer, highlighter and BB Cream all in one.
When I read the claims of the Maybelline Instant Perfector 4-in-1 Glow Makeup, I wasn’t sure how a product could work as a primer, a concealer, a highlighter and then a BB Cream, but my friend mentioned it could potentially be a dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter, but on a budget?
The product contains just 20ml / 0.68 fl.oz of product within a clear plastic tube, with a pink flocked sponge applicator, just like their Instant Rewind Concealer.
So, you’d need to twist the centre of the tube, and the product will push through the flocked applicator for application on to the skin.
Turn the collar of the applicator in the direction of arrows until product is visible on the sponge. This may require a number of turns the first time. Apply directly to face. Blend into skin tone.
The Maybelline Instant Perfector 4-in-1 Glow Makeup is available in the following five shades;
- Fair Light 000
- Light 001
- Medium 002
- Medium Deep 003
- Deep 04
Maybelline can do better than this shade range, it really isn’t great. Five shades isn’t even remotely close to being acceptable for a base product in 2021.
- 4-in-1 makeup for a perfected glow look plus free compact makeup mirror
- Primes, conceals, highlights, and evens skin tone with light coverage
- Built-in sponge applicator for an easy, quick application
- Self-adjusting shades that blend into skin tone
- Do-it-all makeup has everything you need to perfect your look in an instant!
They rave about how inclusive they are with their Fit Me collection, but then follow those products up with a product in just five shades, and it’s just not good enough for any brand, especially a mega brand like Maybelline.
In terms of the claims, I’m a little sceptical. I don’t see how a product can be a primer, concealer, highlighter and BB cream in one. Even just on the BB Cream and Concealer claims, BB creams don’t give you enough coverage that you don’t need a concealer.
Then the fact it’s supposed to be a highlighter too? I’m really not sure, but hopefully we’ll see some reviews coming out over the coming weeks to see what it’s actually like….
