Having such light skin makes it really difficult for me to disguise my scarring, dark circles, pimples, and the overall redness that sometimes takes over my face, so I’ve become somewhat of a concealer junkie. Today, I have three concealers to share with you that are all a little bit different in price and can be used for different areas that need to be concealed.
The first is by far my favorite, the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. After seeing bloggers buzz about this all over the internet and YouTube a year or so ago, I decided to give it a try. Although not cheap (it’s $29!), it is the best concealer I’ve ever used. It’s creamy as the name suggests, but it truly does cover the biggest and brightest pimples out there. Not to mention you can use it for under the eyes, but I prefer to make the most out of the product by only using it for redness. With a little-added powder, this concealer stays all day.
The second and newest concealer in my collection is Benefit’s Erase Paste Brightening Concealer. I heard a few negative comments about this concealer three years ago, so I never ended up trying it. However, a friend re-introduced this to me about two months ago. I tried it out for a few days and then picked it up from Sephora. This concealer is still quite expensive at $26, but a little really does go a long way. Because of this and the product’s formulation, I recommend using just a little bit so the product doesn’t crease under the eyes. I’ve recently been using this just under my eyes before I put on my foundation. The great thing about this foundation is that it has a little bit of an orange tone to it, which cancels out the darkness under the eyes.
The last concealer is one that I’ve been using for the past three years but fell out of love with it for a little while. It’s the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. Now that I’ve been using it consistently again, I’ve really enjoyed it. After I use the Benefit concealer and then my foundation over the top, I like to go back in with this product under my eyes and take the leftover on my eyelids. Although this product doesn’t last all day as it’s only a drugstore concealer (it’s really affordable at around $6), I find that it’s really easy to reapply if I need a touch-up during the day.
I’d really love what concealers you love! Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter!
