Holy Grail Concealers

I love concealer.  I mean, I love all make-up but me and concealer have a special affinity.  There is nothing more exciting to me than a high coverage, blendable concealer.  I’m always on the lookout for both drugstore and high end amazing ones.  So, here are a few of my favourites.

High End:

1. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – Light 2 Vanilla

This stuff is good.  Like really good.  I find that it provides a perfect amount of coverage, and is very long wearing.  Some concealers tend to wear off a little throughout the day, but this one covers up blemishes all day long.

2. Tarte Shape Tape – Fair 

Everyone and their uncle has been raving about this concealer.  This is the newest addition to my collection, and the hype around it made me so eager to try it.  I love it.  A little bit goes an incredibly long way, otherwise it does tend to look a little on the cakey side – however if you use the right amount, this is an absolutely incredible product. I would highly recommend you give it a try.

3. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer – NC15

I do have to admit, I was a little hesitant to give this concealer a try.  It doesn’t have the best reviews, and the lightest shade available was a shade darker than my foundation.  However, this is possible my all time favourite concealer – so much so that I have already gone through three bottles of this stuff.  It provides the most coverage I have ever experienced, and blends beautifully.  My all time favourite.

4. Urban Decay Naked Concealer – Fair Neutral

My final high end shout-out has to go to the first ever expensive concealer that I bought.  This stuff changed my life (I’m a dramatic person, sue me). It more or less opened my eyes to how amazing more pricey makeup can be, and started me on my concealer binging ways.  Always there when you need a trusty concealer that you know won’t go wrong.

Drugstore:

1. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – Fair

I’m pretty sure that this is the first concealer that I ever purchased.  I remember buying it on the recommendation of more or less every Beauty Blogger in the community.  I instantly fell in love, and it has been love ever since.  I have loved this stuff for years, and always have two back ups in my makeup collection just in case I ever run out.  Definitely one to give a go, and, for the price, why wouldn’t you?!

2. Maybelline Eraser Eye – Light

This is an amazing concealer for the under-eye.  I know there is a little bit of controversy regarding the sponge applicator, but I personally love it.  I think that it feels so nice and glides onto the skin.  The colour is lovely, and it blends like a dream.  Not really enough coverage to conceal anything other than what it is intended for, but nevertheless another affordable option to try out.

3. LA Girl Pro Conceal – Porcelain

This is such a good dupe for the MAC Pro Longwear concealer if you don’t happen to have a fortune sitting around to fork out on makeup.  I picked mine up from Beauty Bay – ripped the awful applicator from the tube and I adore this stuff.

So, there you have it.  My top concealer picks.  I hope I managed to add a few things onto your wish-list.  If you have any recommendations for me, don’t hesitate to let me know!

Lots of love,
