Drugstore Product of the Week! An AWESOME Dupe!

Sun, 6 Jan 2013


By Huda Heidi Kattan

If you were stranded on a desert island, and only had the option of only three products, what would they be? Every time I hear this question, concealer & mascara are ALWAYS there! But the truth is,using the wrong concealer can actually hurt you! One of the biggest beauty blunders of all time is concealer–the wrong color, the wrong texture, the wrong technique, yada yada yada, I mean concealer is definitely a MUST, but sooooooo hard to master!

I recently tried the Maybelline FIT foundation and LOOOVED how natural and flawless it made my skin look (read the full review here)! I started using the concealer and I love how easy it is to apply! Ok, there are a TON of reasons why this concealer is AWESOME! Let me break it down:

  • The Texture is amazing and will literally work on any skin type
  • The color range is fantastic and really suits every skin tone to olive, pink, yellow, etc
  • The blendability is perfect! It blends right into skin, leaving a very natural finish!

This product is actually a PERFECT dupe for the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Concealer! It feels exactly the same with the same beautiful coverage at less than half of the price! If you guys want to see the comparison, let me know!

  3. 3 Nihal

    Yes, we definitely do.

  4. Definitely wanna see a comparison! I loooove how maybelline have been stepping up their game with new releases lately! I used to swear by high end products till i started using maybelline’s new products namely their dream lumi concealer, one by one mascara and eyestudio gel liner and eyeshadow quads! And i happen to think that a few of their quads are identical in texture/blendability to lancome’s eyeshadows! One word: phenomenal!

    I have this and love it. I have the Buff and the Beige. I found that the Beige was a little too dark and so i switched up to the Buff and it looks really nice. andyour right it does blend and feels really nice. in fact i love the Maybelline Fit foundations also. I have the 210 and 220 shades and i do mix those two colors sometimes to get really nice combo. I cannot say enough about this products, I am in love

    Hi Huda, Need your Help Darling :s

    I need to buy me a new foundation, I would love to try FIT, as for the concealer I’m not sure, my under eyes area is oily and I have serious case of bags and a bit of dark circles. Will it work on me? Will it last most of the day or just few hours?
    My friend has been recommending Makeup forever concealer, but her under eyes is NOTHING like mine. I need a foundation and a concealer for an everyday use and not expensive. PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Help.

  12. wohoooo I love your dupe posts! so getting this :) have a lovely day, Huda :)

  25. 30 nicky


    Your blog is fab! what blush have you got on in the pic above?

  26. 31 BeautyGlam

    Darling what shade are you in this?

  27. How did you find this foundation with your oily skin? I’ve had people tell me that it transfers very quickly and its extremely light with no coverage??

    • 34 hudabeauty

      It is very light, but there is coverage! It’s light-to-medium, but very natural looking! It lasts if you set it with a powder! I wear mine for a good 5-8 hours with it looking pretty perfect:) BUT of course it depends on everyone’s skin type! If they have oily skin, it might not last as long! :) I would def give it a try! Xxx
