Lately the makeup product I’ve been buying most are concealers. I go through stages of buying different types of the same makeup. So if I’m running low on concealer, I won’t just buy one, I’ll buy a few to try. Hence the topic of this post! The concealers featured were all purchased in the last couple of weeks and are all drugstore brands, from either Boots or Superdrug. (With the exception of the LA Girl concealer from Amazon).
I’m going to start with my fave first and finish up with my least fave!
NYX HD Photogenic Concealer
This concealer has a lovely texture, it’s very creamy and is so easy to blend! I hate concealers and foundations that feel heavy on the skin but this one’s really light weight and has very good coverage for it’s light weight texture. I find it works well around my under eyes when my dark circles aren’t too bad, which is something I can’t say about a lot of concealers. NYX do stock a specific dark circles concealer, however it comes in a pot and I tend not to buy concealers in that form. I just find wands and sticks so much quicker to use! This concealer comes in a wide range of shades, as well as colour correcting tones which I’d like to try at some point.
I bought this concealer from Boots, for £5.50 – a great price for the product! They’re also available on the NYX UK website which has finally launched now, yay! But they’re £6.00 on there, not too sure why..
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
This concealer seems to be the blogger favourite and I can see why! It’s said to last for up to 16 hours. It is long lasting, however I think 16 hours is a little too adventurous. It has good coverage and a creamy texture, similar to the NYX, which makes it nice and easy to blend. It was a really close call between the two! Again, this concealer also comes in a wide range of shades (in my Superdrug anyway), which I think is really important in finding the perfect match for your skin tone.
LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer
I’ve seen a few comments from other bloggers saying they love the product but not the brush applicator. I actually do like the applicator, however it did take some time to get used to. I can imagine that towards the end of tube, some of the product can be wasted in the brush applicator. One review also said that their brush hardened as they hadn’t used the product in a while. I have this in the yellow colour correcting shade and it works so well on concealing the veins around my eyes! It isn’t as creamy in texture as the others but still blends quite well.
Makeup Revolution The Matte Effect Cover & Conceal Concealer
I don’t tend to purchase stick concealers anymore as I find them harder to blend, especially on dry areas of skin, which I’m prone to. However, I do like this stick concealer! I think it’s really similar to Rimmel’s Hide the Blemish concealer stick, which I used to use all the time a few years ago. It provides pretty good coverage, it isn’t as bendable as the liquid concealers – I think that’s kind of expected. But for the price, it’s not a bad product at all!
This concealer is only £1.00 from Superdrug – that’s not a typo!! For only £1.00 this product is an absolute bargain, it’s great if you’re running low on money but need a decent concealer.
Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix Liquid Concealer
If you’ve read my posts before, you’ll be surprised to see this concealer at the bottom of my list. I was actually really disappointed by this product and wouldn’t recommend it. The main problem is that the coverage just wasn’t there, it was way too sheer! The texture of the product was strange, it wasn’t creamy like the others and was more like a thin liquid.
Personally, it really wasn’t for me but if you’d like to try it out for yourself it was only £2.00 from Superdrug.
My Concealer Wishlist
Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Concealer – UD describe this as a weightless complete coverage concealer. I’ve heard so many good things about it and other UD products I’ve used have been great, so this is the next concealer for me!
Have you used any of the concealers in this post? Let me know if there are any other really good concealers that you recommend!!
Hope you enjoyed.. X
