I’ve been so busy this week that I didn’t think I’d be able to get another blog post up but I’ve managed to squeeze one in. I’ve decided to do the concealer edit and show you guys all of the concealers I have in my makeup collection, there’s two high end and three drugstore, so something for every budget! Some of these are concealers are ones I always use and will continue to repurchase because they’re really good at matching my skin tone, covering redness and blemishes and covering under eye circles. What more could a girl want from a concealer? So without further ado, here they all are.
This is a very popular concealer in the beauty world, for only £4.19 you get a concealer that has really good coverage, covers under eye circles really really well and also covers up redness and blemishes. I have this in ‘Fair’ and it’s a great colour match for my pale skin. It doesn’t last all that long, but if you don’t want to splurge on the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, it’s a pretty good dupe.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
This concealer is another popular product in the high end spectrum, it’s £22 but totally and utterly worth it, I promise! I have this in the shade Chantilly as it’s the perfect light shade for brightening under my eye area. I only use it to cover my under eye circles as I don’t like to waste such an expensive product on covering up blemishes when I can use a more affordable concealer for that. But honestly, it works a dream on under eye circles, it covers them up perfectly and doesn’t crease with a setting powder over it, at least not for a few hours anyway. Some claim that it doesn’t crease for them at all but I think because I have oily skin, I’m prone to it a bit more. If you buy a shade that matches your skin tone rather than going for a lighter version, it is brilliant at covering up blemishes and redness too, but at the moment I only have a light version for my under eye circles.
Mac Studio Finish Concealer
I have been using this product for years, it has quite a thick but creamy formula and is just one of the best concealers I have ever used for covering any imperfections I have on my face. I have this in the shade NW15 and one pot costs £15.50 which seems like a lot, but these little babes have lasted me well over a year even using it practically every day. As you can see it’s well used and loved, and I’m about due another one, but I’ve had this since my birthday last year I believe, so that’s over a year! You will not be disappointed with this product, the only tiny issue I have with it is that it’s not all that great for oily skin, whenever I wear it in my T-Zone I always get more oily than usual, it’s a shame but I still absolutely love it!
This concealer is really similar to the Mac Studio Finish, it’s another quite thick but creamy formula, it’s not as good, but it’s a third of the price at £5.49. I have this in the shade ‘Fair’ and I’ve been using this loads lately to cover up all my break outs and it has really good coverage. I’ve been using a lot of it and I’ve hardly made a dent in it as you can see, I can imagine this will last a fairly long time. This is by far my favourite drugstore concealer!
This is a drugstore concealer I was eager to try out after hearing good things about it, and I do really like it. Not so much for the formula but more for the yellow toned side as it’s the perfect colour match for my yellow undertones. I tend to reach for that side a lot more than the pink colour but it is really great at covering up redness/blemishes/under eye circles. If you can find a use for both sides then I really recommend it, but I don’t think I’ll repurchase this just for one of the shades. It has a translucent powder in the top and a little mirror so if you travel a lot it’s perfect!
And those are all of the concealers I own at the minute, what’s your favourite?
