Hello again! This must be one of my most favorite topic ever…CONCEALERS! I can live without any brow products, blushes,contour,mascara but not concealers. It’s my most use product (obviously because of my dark circles and blemishes) it has become something that I could not live without, if I have to choose between foundation or concealer I would definitely go for concealers!
And after trying so much concealer I have found both great ones and the not so good ones so I recon why not share my opinion in case it could help some of you guys.
Let’s start with my MOST favorite concealer
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – Custard
This has to be my top favorite concealer of all (at the moment, there are still a lot of concealers that I heard good things about but yet to try them out!), as the name say it is very nice and creamy and the consistency is on the thicker side, BUT don’t be scared of it being thick because this thing covers up pretty much anything and still look radiant! It’s not too drying which is great for a concealer with this amount of coverage, I basically use it for my dark circles, my blemishes, some acne and sometime I only use this with a setting powder and I’m good to go!
Rate : 10/10
Mac Pro long wear concealer – NC 20
This was all the rave on youtube and social media, everyone is using so I had to try it! This one is also on the thicker side but not as much as the nars concealer, it does have a tacky feeling to it once you get the product out. I find that using fingers might not be the best solution for this product because it’s not as easy to blend out because of it’s tackiness BUT once use with a Beauty Blender (or a foundation brush, but I prefer the beauty blender) it gives the perfect amount of coverage and looks great! It does crease quite a lot if you don’t set it with powder but once you set it, it does last a very long time. The only down side has to be the packaging the pump makes it a lot harder to adjust how much product which normally…ended up with too much.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – 1,2,3,4
Again this is also something everyone should have, people have been obsessed over this concealer because of the coverage and the affordable price point. To me this is a good concealer, the coverage is great but it is very drying and requires a quick application because it dried up really quickly. The color selection is not so great with only 4 colors to choose from, I ended up needing to mix the colors together because the lightest one is too ashy and 2nd one is too pink while no. 3 and 4 is too dark for me, so I ended up using more time than I should to just to mix all of these. But over all it’s a nice concealer from the drugstore.
Maybelline Fit me – 10,20
This is also my favorite concealer from the drugstore, it’s affordable, nice coverage, and the texture is amazing! One of the smoothest and creamy texture I have found. Sadly it is not available in Thailand so I bought mine from the UK, but seriously, it is very good! I love using this under my eyes and blemishes, it’s not as full coverage as the Nars or Mac ones but it give’s a very nice amount of coverage and doesn’t look cakey!
Benefit Boing concealer – 01,02
This is one of the brands most selling product and people loved it. But unfortunately for me, I’m not as happy with it as I should have been. Before getting this product I have really high hope for this product because of all the reviews online.
But it just doesn’t work for me, I tried using my fingers, my brush and even my beauty blender and still it not what I expected. The coverage is alright you can layer it for more coverage, it’s quite hard to blend especially with your fingers but the most annoying thing with this concealer is no matter how much I moisturize my face or eye area and how much blend and gently set it with powders, it is always cakey and creasing and emphasizing my fine lines. I gave it a try so many times and I don’t think I’ll be using it again, even though it looked nice right when I just applied it but within an hour all of this would happen and I just can’t fix it. 😦
So here it is both my favorite and not so good product, I hope you enjoy and remember, what works for me might not work for you and what works for you might not work for me. These are only my personal opinion in case you have the same skin type or problems like me.
