When it comes to makeup I’m all about that base, bout that base :p Foundations and concealers are my weakness so I’ve tried out quite a few. Now imma tell you the top 5 best and worst concealers that I’ve purchased and tried out for dark circles and spots. I’ll go in order and number 1 being the best and the worst for each.
5. Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer
This is a liquid concealer that can be used to cover both dark circle and spots. The coverage isn’t that full for me and it’s a little oily. Also the scent really bothers me. I personally don’t think that this can be used without setting powder. I can definitely get better liquid concealers that’ll cost way less than RM80.
4. Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Concealer
This is the best drugstore concealer in my opinion. The coverage is medium to full BUT it only comes in 2 colors and sad to say neither one is my perfect shade. It’s creamy enough for the undereyes and also pigmented enough for spot concealing as well and it doesnt break me out. It’s only RM19.90 and you can get this at Watsons.
3. MAC Pro-longwear Concealer
Cult beauty product and I can see why so many people love this. The consistency is a little runny so I didnt really expect it to be as full coverage as it is. Definitely can be used for both undereyes and spots but I dont really use this on my face area coz I kinda think it breaks me out a bittttt? But its great for undereyes. I hate the packaging coz the pump that it comes with is hard to control and I end up wasting some product eveytime I pump it out.
2. Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer
There’s nothing in this world that’s more full coverage than this one right here. I have been using it for months and months on a daily basis and its still full in that pot so definitely worth the price! I use this only for my undereyes as a highlight over any of the other concealer or sometimes on its own and I need the tiniest tiniest amount and it covers the panda eyes like magic. Like the pro-longwear, I dont use this on my face area coz I think it clog my pores sometimes after continuous use.
1. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
This is a god sent!! This is my number 1! I am so in love with this concealer and im on my second tube. I use this is Custard and this is the only concealer that is a spot on match for my skin and does not irritate or break me out at all. It’s so creamy and the consistency is so perfect for under eyes and to cover pigmentation. If I have to choose one out of all that i have, it will definitely be this one with no second thought given coz this is the only concealer that I allow on my face area. No offensive scent as well. I highly recommend this concealer even though it is RM100 I can assure that you wont regret it. I became like a concealer brat towards other brands after I tried this. Will never stop using this!
So are you ready for some bitterness? Here goes…..
5. TARTE Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer
I don’t like this for a stick concealer. It’s so oily and the coverage it gave was nonsense. I’ve tried better stick concealers at half the price of this one and I like the KATE’s Stick Concealer better. I used this up anyway coz it was pricey but I was real disappointed in this given that the Amazonian Clay Foundation was awesome.
4. Revlon Colorstay stick Concealer
I loved the Colorstay Foundation and thought of trying this out which was a mistake… haha. Contrary to the Tarte’s, this one is super dry! The formula is so bad and it’s hard to get the product to glide onto my face. Waste of money. Still quite full, dunno what to do with it. Honestly, if you want a stick concealer, try the KATE concealer that you can get from Watsons for less than RM50.
3. Jane Iredale Disappear Concealer with Green Tea Extract
This was the concealer I used when my skin was going insane during highschool and it has acne fighting properties. I liked it back then and repurchased it recently and I completely hate it! Im not sure whether they changed the formula over the years but this looks so cakey and so thick on my face. I used it once and just kept it aside. Waste of money this was more than RM100
2. Essence Cover stick
What is this? What does this even cover? That’s quite a name, coz it does not cover anything. Maybe I’m used to heavy duty concealers but this was crap. I wouldnt waste my money on this again even though it was around RM10 when I got it? No just no.
1. Benefit Erase Paste
The number 1 worst concealer in my opinion is the Benefit’s Erase Paste. This was the concealer that I’m most pissed off about. So expensive and does completely nothing. Supposed to be a corrector for dark circles but NO! it did not correct or conceal. Really annoyed with this purchase. I usually don’t make a big mistake like this when buying products but I guess sometimes we gotta learn the hard way hahaha.
So that was my top 5 best and worst concealers I hope this well help you decide on concealers in the future! Thank for reading Xx!
