Conceal Don't Feel

Sorry for the little Frozen mention in the title, but needs must and all that. For me concealer is more important than foundation, and I'd rather have a trusty concealer on hand than an industrial foundation. Since I love to ditch the foundation for a concealer I've found I've collected quite the little collection and thought I'd share with you the best concealers I've tried.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch - The bee's knees of concealers in my humble opinion. I find it really covers my under eye bags whilst adding luminosity and awakening my face. I really notice it transforming my face which I love. I've mentioned it many a time in this small space on the interwebs and I reckon it will crop up for many a more post too.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer - To be honest with you this is pretty much a slightly less lumious fuller coverage of the Maybelline version I've just mentioned. I tend to use this on less important occasions as it's easier to get my hands on than the Maybelline one and in the correct shade.

Bourjois 123 CC Perfect Eye Cream - Aah a CC cream for the eyes, whatever next. I've recently done a full review of this so I won't bore you too much, but for me this is great if you're a pale person in need of a lighter colour for contour this is the best. Someone did point out in a comment (thank you) that the amount of product in this pen isn't very much so aren't really getting much bang for your buck so to speak; however I find it cheap enough, and like it enough to not let that bother me.

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage - Whilst the other concealers I've mentioned have tended to focus on the eye area, this is the only concealer I've found that's really great at concealing the nasty spots that appear. A mixture of these two colours is enough to conceal anything you want to hide like no concealer I've tried before. The thick consistency means blemishes are hidden in an instant, however it doesn't feel heavy or look cakey on your face. If you had some serious bags or wanted extra flawless skin you could use this under your eyes, with some eye cream and go on top with one of the above concealers for some serious flawlessness.

What's your favourite concealer?

  1. Haha, I titled a concealer review "Conceal, don't Feel" as well! What can I say, I love Frozen. I've heard so many good things about the LM Secret Camouflage, it sounds amazing. I'm actually yet to try a luminating concealer for the under eyes, I should get on that!

  2. The rimmel sounds like one I'd happily buy! I haven't pick up anything from their wake me up bases yet! That LM concealer kit is on my long term wish list! i dont need very heavy concealing but I do get darknesss under my eyes! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Love the Frozen reference! This post has made me want to swap my Collection 2000 concealer for the Maybelline one!

  4. That Maybelline one sounds good! I may give it a try. I use the E.L.F. Tone Correcting concealer. It does the job ok and it has a really nice, light fruity scent. I like it for the most part but I've been on the hunt for a new one lately just to shake things up. Thanks for the recommendations! And I love the Frozen reference!



Thank you so much for you comment, it really brightens my day.
