Maybelline The Eraser Foundation

When it comes to foundation I like using cream based textures and something that is going to give my skin a bit of a glow or sheen as well as keep it moisturised. I get this sort of result from one of my favourite foundations which I use on a daily basis - Leichner's Camera Clear Tinted Foundation. Due to the fact that Leichner's offering ticks all the boxes for me, I don't tend to be on the lookout for other foundations out there.

I did however grab myself a bottle of Maybelline's Eraser Foundation - and no it's not because of the soft and cuddly looking applicator head - but simply because it contains an SPF of 18 and my current day time moisturiser of choice hasn't got an spf in it.
So on those days when I know that I'm going to be out and about, I alternate Leichner with Maybelline's Eraser to keep myself protected from the scorching rays of Northern Ireland's sun...hope you're sensing the sarcasm here:)

Here's what Maybelline has to say about The Eraser:

Go beyond covering lines – instantly erase the look of creases, crow’s feet and fine lines. With an applicator exclusively designed to apply the super-concentrated formula, The Eraser instantly fills and smoothes the look of imperfections.

The Eraser Secret:
  • Exclusive Micro-corrector applicator fills and smoothes the look of imperfections.
  • Super-concentrated formula enriched with Goji Berry & Collagen helps tighten & improve skin elasticity.
  • Instantly erases the look of crow's feet, fine lines and dark circles.
Directions for use:
•Slowly turn the red neck of the bottle in direction of arrows until foundation begins to appear.
•Apply foundation directly to face, blending with the applicator in an outward motion as needed.
•For best results, apply sparingly.
•To apply more, twist neck of applicator 1-2 clicks at a time.
•Directions for cleaning: The Eraser formula is protected with an anti-microbial system.
•Do not wet applicator. Wipe off excess foundation with dry tissue only.
I personally don't use the fluffy applicator head for working the foundation into my skin but tend to apply several swipes across my face and then either blend out with my fingers of buff in with my e.l.f. powder brush.
Initially I couldn't really make up my mind as to whether or not I liked this foundation much but gradually it started to grow on me.
The key is, as stated by Maybelline, to apply sparingly. This foundation has a light texture and it can be tempting to reapply more to certain areas which only makes it sit on top of the skin.
When you first start to blend this foundation it feels a little slippy and seems to slide all over the face but once blended in it stays in place.

The Eraser has a light, sheer texture and coverage with the formula being somewhat brightening - it seems to lift my complexion making it look less dull which is what I love about it as I can really see the difference throughout the day when wearing it...can't really put my finger on it but my face seems to look sort of fresh...if that makes sense.

As for erasing crows feet and fine lines - can't vouch for that as luckily I haven't got those yet.

Have you tried The Eraser?


  1. hmmm thanks for the review. was curious about this product and its finish and coverage. i dont think i would choose it though, as i don't think the applicator head can be very hygienic after a few uses.
