A MAKEUP fan took to TikTok to share her first impressions of the viral Maybelline 4-in-1 perfector – but unfortunately was left disappointed, and claimed it left her looking ‘orange’.
The £12.99 perfector, hailed as a Charlotte Tilbury dupe, claims to work as a primer, concealer, highlighter, and BB cream – but the TikTokker suggests it only does one of the four.
Olivia, known online as @theoliviasaurusrex, regularly shares beauty tips and reviews with her 418,000 views.
During the 33-second video, she said: “My local Superdrug is finally stocking these Maybelline Perfectors, so let’s give it a go.
“This is the 4-in-1 Glow in the shade 00 fair/light which is the lightest shade.
“The consistency is thinner than I expected so I encoded up applying a fair amount.
“I had to double-check that this was actually the lightest shade because it’s quite orange.
“This is described as a primer, concealer, highlighter, and BB cream.
“The finish is beautiful, very glowy, but because of the poor shade match, I had to blend it out so much there was no coverage.
“Testing out the concealer claim. There’s just no coverage at all.
“The orange-ness could be fixed with wearing foundation over the top, but then it’s just 1 in 1 – a primer.”
Fans loved Olivia’s honest review, with the video gaining more than 21,100 likes and 161,000 views.
In the comments, the makeup fan’s followers shared their thoughts on the viral product, with one writing: “I was so excited to try this and left so disappointed.”
Another said: “I’m pale and found 00 was super dark on me too.”
A third added: “Tried it on my hand today….my hand looks like a Christmas bauble now, so much glitter!”
Others raved about it, with one commenting: “For me, it just works as a thin glowy base, like the Flawless Filter product.”
Someone else put: “It’s really good for warm-toned but light skin.”
Chloe added: “Omg I just bought that two days ago hahaha I love it so much!”
