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 ConcealerΒ (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 you @pixibeauty for all the eye goodies!! I am already a fan of their endless silky eye pen formula so can’t wait to try these shades. Today I used the Eye Bright Liner and the Eye Define Waterline to tightline. I really like the nude shade as it is very natural. Have you tried any of these?

  • I had been thinking about getting this @laneige_us lip mask for so long! As someone guilty of picking at her lips (thanks anxiety), they’re always a mess and just a hint of dryness enables me to pick at them. I’ve been using this for the last couple of nights, and I love waking up to hydrated lips πŸ‘„ Have you tried this or anything similar? How do you care for your lips?

  • N E W | @urbandecaycosmetics Naked Heat vs @tartecosmetics Tartelette Toasted [link in bio]πŸ”₯Since the release of these two palettes, I went back and forth between which one I wanted. I thought they were a lot more similar than they actually are. If you swipe left you’ll be able to see swatches and how the overall color palette is different! Are you a toasted or a heat?
