My Favorite Concealers Review

Concealer is one of those things I think are a MUST in everyone’s makeup bag. Whether it is for dark circles, spots, blemishes, redness, etc, you need this in your life!! If you’re someone who leans more towards the natural side, but still want to cover some things, concealer is what you need to invest on. Lately, I have become concealer obsessed and have been trying a couple of things, both drugstore and high-end and thought I’d share them with you! I somehow feel like even though I’ve found some great concealers, I don’t think I’ve found the perfect concealer for ME, so please leave any recommendations in the comments below! It will be greatly appreciated.

So, let’s begin!

Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer

Much like the foundation, I think this is a great product, but I really hate the applicator. It’s like this weird brush thing that you have to squeeze in order to get the product to come out. It provides a decent amount of coverage, but nothing life-changing. I first heard about it because I think Zoella did a drugstore haul where she tried new things and this was one of them. I can only speak about dark circles, since I don’t really have any other skin concerns, but I think she mentioned it being better for blemishes and spots.

NARS Soft Matte Concealer

I really want to looooove this concealer, but I don’t. Don’t get me wrong, it is great, it is high-coverage, but I don’t think it’s my everyday undereye concealer. I usually use it when I’m running late, mainly because it’s quick to apply and to blend, but if I’m not running late, I usually reach for others. I do think it would be a much better concealer to cover spots, but for undereye, I sometimes find it hard to work with. Have you tried this before? With everyone raving about it, I really feel like I need to love it.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle

Lots of beauty bloggers have raved about this before! It really is a great concealer given the price. I also think that because of the packaging, it would be a good thing to bring with you when you travel or to keep in your purse if you ever need a touch-up. I sometimes found its consistency a little bit hard to work with, but nothing that would stop me from repurchasing once mine’s out.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer (if this is in-stock when you look for it, get it!)

Okay, this is the best thing ever! I am sure you’ve read thousands of reviews raving about this concealer, loving it, obsessing over it, and I’ll be one more. This is a high-coverage concealer, this is usually what I pair up with the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD concealer for the perfect coverage. The texture is super creamy and I think it can be hard to overuse it, I see a lot of Instagram makeup videos where they just go at it, and that’s too much for me. I usually add a couple of dots on my face under both eyes and blend out with a beauty blender. I have two shades, mainly because I don’t really have a really defined undertone so I can get away with using products with both pink and yellow undertones depending on what I’m feeling.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer

If you’re not familiar with these concealers, Make Up For Ever has some concealer shades and some color correcting shades. In my case, this is a color corrector. I attended a Sephora Beauty class to learn about highlighting and contour and they recommended it to me and I have been obsessed ever since. I usually use it along with another concealer, that provides a bit more coverage and also lightens up my undereye. I use my finger to apply this and then finish with a beauty blender, as I want this to focus in my undereye, unlike concealer that you want to have the triangle. This is the only color correcting product I use, so if you’re interested in something like this, I highly recommend you go to your closest Sephora location and ask one of the representatives to help you find the right shade for you!

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer Concealer

This was my first high-end concealer and I love it! It is not my favorite (that spot is taken by its Tarte sibling), but it’s still a great concealer! I really have just been LOVING Tarte lately. The packaging is lovely, and it provides great coverage. I have heard amazing things about the foundation lately as well and I’ve been thinking of picking it up. Let me know if I should!

  • Thank @pixibeauty for the most beautiful package ♥️ The #pixibeauty #mattelastliquidlip is one of my favorite #mattelipstick formulas so you have no idea how excited I was when Pixi announced they were releasing new shades 🎉 And I was even MORE excited when this showed up at my door. I already owned the original shades so I gifted the extra ones to my friend (and #skincare queen 👑) @mod.young.
•
This formula is so lightweight, and not drying, and really, the only #matteliquidlipstick I use anymore. My favorite shade from this new release HAS to be #BerryBoost. The perfect shade for #fall🍁
•
No se imaginan la felicidad cuando llego este paquetito a mi puerta 😍 Estos labiales líquidos de @pixibeauty son mis favoritos. Vivo enamorada de los seis tonos que lanzaron primero, y ahora han lanzado cinco nuevos tonos más vibrantes y coloridos.
  • Please ignore the disgusting stage of my #glossier #cloudpaints 🙈 But these are my go-to cream blushes (pretty much all the ones I own). I find that cream blushes can give the most natural, flushed look and I love that. The #cloudpaint is the one I have been using the longest but I think the @flowerbeauty #blushbomb color drops are VERY similar (and MORE affordable). My newest addition is the #lilahbeauty divine duo - again, gorgeous shade and amazing formula.
•
Do you like a cream blush? Or do you prefer a powder blush?
•
Hablemos de rubores en crema! Me parece que en esta presentación el rubor se puede ver tan natural, así como pretendiendo que hicimos ejercicio pero llevamos tres horas en el sofá. Así. Estos son mis favoritos (todos los que tengo). Si buscan una opción económica les recomiendo el de Flower Beauty. Muy similar al de glossier.

  • Showing you the various stages of this look from the final outcome to my very, very naked face from a couple of weeks ago. This week has been a test to my #confidence. I got a stye(eyelid pimple) on my left eye and I looked like I had been punched (according to me). This meant I couldn’t wear ANY eye makeup. While I preach that #beauty is not dependent on #makeup, I still felt very insecure not being able to put on mascara or eyeliner. We get used to seeing ourselves in a certain way, and when we don’t look like what we’re used to, it’s not necessarily a bad thing - but just different. In my mind, if I can see a “flaw,” everyone else can see it too. When the reality is they’re probably not even paying attention. •
Do you also get up close and personal with your mirror and wonder if others can see that tiny little mark on your cheek?
•
Mostrándoles este look de hace un par de semanas desde el acabado hasta mi carita bien desnuda. Esta semana me ha salido un orzuelo en el párpado izquierdo lo que significó que no me podía poner #maquillaje en los ojos. Estando acostumbrada a verme CON maquillaje, fue muy extraño verme sin. Cuando estoy en la casa sin planes de ir a ningún lado, nunca me maquillo. Pero cuando voy a la universidad si. Y fue difícil. Porque pensaba que todo el mundo se iba a dar cuenta cuando la realidad es que probablemente ni siquiera estén prestando atención.
  • Nothing like #TextureTuesday and dipping into a brand new pot of @farmacybeauty #GreenClean. I had only tried one other balm before this one - and it hadn’t really been an enjoyable experience. I then got a mini somewhere and I am now the proud mother of this baby.
•
I love how well this removes my makeup. It is so effective and I find that I don’t have to use a lot of product. Usually I scoop some out and then start grabbing it with my fingers, but I always have some left over. If you’re in the market for a cleanser, I definitely recommend you give this one a chance. It won’t disappoint you!
•
Como les mostré en mis historias, he empezado un tarro nuevo de este bálsamo para desmaquillarse de #farmacybeauty. Es súper efectivo en remover maquillaje e impurezas de la piel. No me reseca la piel para nada. Súper recomendado!
  • Happy #MACMonday featuring my two newest addition to my humble @maccosmetics collection. I picked up two shades of their new #MACPowderKiss formula - Shocking Revelation (the more red/berry), and Burning Love (the deeper shade). I have yet to use them on my lips 👄 but I am very impressed by the formula! Have you tried these yet?
•
Feliz Lunes de #MACCosmetics ♥️Les presento las últimas adiciones a mi humilde colección. Dos labiales de su nueva fórmula #PowderKiss en Shocking Revelation y Burning Love. Ya los probaron?
  • Nothing like having enough time to do a full face of makeup. Honestly, my most relaxing time is picking out what I’m going to use, playing some YouTube, and doing my makeup. Even when I don’t have plans of going anywhere 🙈 there are about 13 products here. How many are there in your #fullfacemakeup routine!?
•
Nada como tener el tiempo para jugar con todo esto. Para mi no hay nada más relajante que escoger que voy a usar, poner YouTube, y maquillarme. Aún cuando no voy para ninguna parte 🙈 aquí hay más o menos 13 productos. Cuantos hay en su rutina?
