Top 5 Concealers


Concealers are a beauty must have especially for me. No matter how much sleep I get, my dark circles are so persistent. I also love concealers for highlighting parts of my face like under the eyes/cheekbones, centre of forehead, nose and chin. I am always on the hunt for a new concealer, weather it be drugstore or high end and I have tried quite a few in my lifetime. 

Lets start with the newest in my collection and my all time favourite. Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer which I purchased from Debenhams for £17.50. This is one of the pricier concealers in my collection but in my opinion, the one worth the most money. This is the lightest shade that they sell which is a great colour for me and works really nice to highlight. This formula is so high coverage and yet not drying at all. Overall, I think this is an amazing concealer and I definitely recommend.

The next one is the cheapest of all the concealers at just £4.19 from Superdrug. It is the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and I've probably had this one for the longest and have repurchased a fair few of them. For the price, this concealer is great. It is very full coverage to hide dark circles but isn't very creamy and can be quite drying. If you're on a budget and want a concealer to cover dark circles or hide blemishes then this concealer is ideal.

The next one is the LA Girl Pro Conceal and I purchased this from Beauty Bay for just £5. This concealer is great coverage and has a creamy consistency. For £5 you really can not go wrong! I would say the only problem with this is that it creases easily on my eyes but it can easily be solved.

My final high end concealer is the Pro Longwear Concealer by Mac. This is definitely an oldie but a goodie. Excuse the mess of it on the picture, it shows it is well loved! This is probably the highest coverage concealer I own (close second is the Urban Decay Naked Skin). The range in this collection is amazing and really does cater for all skin tones. I really do recommend this product, it retails at £18 which is the steepest purchase but is totally worth it.

The final product I will talk about is the L'oreal dream touch concealer at £6.99 from Boots. I wouldn't actually class this as a concealer but more of a highlighter. I will normally use a concealer such as the Collection Lasting Perfection and then apply this on top of it. I think this is really lovely to give your face some definition.

Have you tried any of these concealers? What are your favourites?
