If you've ever been on the internet, I'm sure you've seen the maybelline instant age rewinder thingy. It's pretty darn popular. I know some people are not a fan but seriously - I have never used a product and actually seen enough of a difference and continuously bought it over and over again.
Like, you know how you guys have basics or staples that you stock up on or repurchase? Yeah, not me. I like the mascara I'm using but I'll most likely buy a different one and not even finish that one. I've changed my face makeup a bazillion times (mostly because they keep discontinuing stuff) and I still have eye shadow palettes from 2010 (I'm not throwing them out when I use them 5 times a year) so no need to repurchase them.
But this stuff? Lurrrve. Love. I. love. it. I have like 7 of them in my bathroom just in case they decide to discontinue it - wouldn't put it past maybelline. Grr. Anyway I feel like this product does wonders for me, it could all be in my head but if it is - let's leave it that way, okay?
I use the light one. I normally buy it from walgreens when they have it on sale or BOGO 50% off.

Anyway. So let's pretend I'm a beauty blogger today. Stop laughing.
Warning - there are photos of me with no makeup on in this post. Also, the lighting isn't the greatest and I used my iPhone, so let's blame my odd yellow skin on that.
Here's what I look like with moisturiser, but that's it.
And to show you where I put the maybelline stuff, I made this handy diagram. I used to just put it under my eyes but then Megan put it all over so, you know, I trust her.
Then I blend it all, not rubbing it in but more like patting and then making sure it's all blended and I don't look like someone who threw some yellow paint on her face.
Ok, it's not mind blowing but it's better than nothing. I still have dark circles and bags, but they aren't going anywhere. Not even with red lipstick (yes, I tried it).
I swipe on some mascara - nothing crazy, just enough to make it look like I actually have lashes.
Again it's not a show stopper but it's enough that I look alive! Oh, and this is the mascara I am currently using. The bags seem to be more prominent when I smile and I'm not gonna stop smiling, so....
Just in case you wanted to see a side by side...
Now I know this can hardly be called a makeup routine, but there it is. That's what I do everyday. Sometimes if I'm feeling crazy I'll use bronzer and blush and actual face makeup - but it's honestly a little bit too much work for me for everyday. I normally workout in the morning and I'm not fast with makeup so it takes me like 30 minutes to do all that. This is fast and easy. If I wear a lot of makeup people at work ask me why I'm all dolled up. If I wear less than this, they ask me if I'm sick. So, you know. Middle ground?
I know some people can whip up their face in like 10 minutes, but that's not me, and I've never been one to wear a lot of makeup anyway. I think I look okay, and that's what matters, isn't it?
Are you a lover or a hater of the maybelline age rewind eraser?
