While baking in the hot summer weather here in London, I decided it was about time I did a blog post on my favourite concealers. I've included a mix of high end and drugstore/highstreet concealers so you guys can see cheaper alternatives to the more pricey ones. I've also mentioned at the end concealers that I would love to try.
Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer
This is probably my favourite concealer at the moment. I use this as an under eye concealer to brighten the area and get rid of my dark circles. For the affordable price, it is definitely a great concealer. It covers small blemishes and really does a good job of making you have that bright Kim Kardashian under eye glow. I would say this is more of a peach toned concealer with slight yellow tones in it.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer NW35
A favourite amongst bloggers, the pro longwear concealer offers full coverage to blemishes and scarring. It's quite thick in consistency but a little goes a long way. This is a good concealer to have for those horrible breakouts!
Maybelline Fit me Concealer #20 Sand
Another great concealer from Maybelline. It's supposedly very similar to MAC's prep + prime highlighting pen and I can see why. It's a little thinner in consistency and has a gorgeous yellow toned formula. It's great for those with strong yellow undertones and works well to highlight the face.
Garnier Caffeine Anti-Dark Circles Roll On Medium
This concealer has a lovely cooling effect when applied under the eyes. It instantly wakes you up and makes you feel rejuvenated. Not only that, it also doubles as a good under eye brightener. In my opinion, I wouldn't say it conceals blemishes/acne very well but it does brighten the face and gets rid of dark circles.
MAC Studio Finish Concealer NC42
This is possibly the best concealer for covering blemishes and severe acne. It could also possibly cover tattoos (though I have not tried). I use this to cover any breakouts and to define the outer shape of my eyebrows. The colouring is very similar to MAC's studio fix foundation, which I like to use in conjunction with it.
MAC Prep + Prime Highlighting Pen Bright Forecast
I love to use this to highlight under my eyes, forehead, cupid's bow and chin when I'm doing a full face make up look. It definitely highlights the area and provides a nice glow. I've got mine in bright forecast which I use as a corrector as it's a peachy colour, so it counteracts any green and purple under the eyes.
MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer NC35
This concealer has a nice creamy texture and blends really well. It covers any imperfections and basically does what it says on the tin. It doesn't cover as well as the studio finish concealer but I find this is easier to apply and blend out.
Bobbi Brown Corrector Light Peach
This corrector by Bobbi Brown has had so many good reviews so I gave in and bought this corrector - I only started using this recently but I love it already. Though the shade 'light peach' is a touch too light for me, once I apply a concealer over it it looks fine. I might do a more in-depth review on this corrector when I've used it a fair bit more.
Concealers I would love to try:
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
I have wanted to try this concealer for quite some time now. It is still relatively new and is known for it's enriched hydrating, multi-action skincare benefits and light diffusing technology. I will definitely get my hands on this when I get the chance.
Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer
Though this concealer is more on the pricey side, it is worth it according to many beauty vloggers! It is described as a concealer that mimics the appearance of healthy, radiant skin, which to me sounds like a perfect everyday concealer. I have a feeling this will be on the wishlist for a while!
