How are you doing?
I wanted to add my interests back to my blog. So, you’ll notice some different posts on my website. I think you’ll enjoy them.
So, I loved to do my make up before my mental illnesses started to fight together to bring me down and whipped my interests from me. I decided that I’m going to fight to get them back.
I never use to be in to make up until one day I was scrolling through Instagram and was watching a video with a beauty blogger and I ordered my first ever beauty bay order and then I became obsessed with makeup. (Literally) The feeling when you’ve had a pretty bad day and when you come home to a makeup parcel. (IS THE BEST FEELING EVER.)
Today post is about concealers! I love concealers. If I don’t want to wear foundation I tend to just put my eyebrows on and conceal the dark circles and spots. Also, I love a bargain if anyone knows me.
I want to save some of your well-earned pennies and tell you how much I like these drugstore concealers.
So, let’s get started..
Number 1 –
Collection Lasting Perfection
Shade – Fair 1
Price – £4.19
It’s a 16-hour lasting concealer which is fantastic if you are on the go and have no time to redo your face makeup. I swear by this concealer. It was my holy grail for so long. You can multiuse this concealer for your eyebrows to carve out the shape you want or erase mistakes. You can use this as an eye primer. You also use this to erase any mistakes once you’ve done your lipstick. It’s so easy to blend also. For the price it is epic!
Number 2 –
NYX Professional Makeup Concealer Wand
Shade – ALABASTER
Price – £6.00
I find NYX products to be hit & miss at times and with the price tag. But this is a hit product. I’m pale like Casper the friendly ghost. But this shade brightens my eyes. This isn’t my favourite product but I do like this. It isn’t wearable for long amounts of time as it creases after 4 hours. But if you are only popping out for a drink, this would be brilliant.
Number 3 –
PRO LA Girl Concealer
Shades – Porcelain & Peach Corrector
Price- £5.00 each
I’m jumping on the bandwagon! I have seen so many beauty bloggers go on about this product. The pigmentation is amazing. It worked ace for my dark circles due to my lack of sleep. I like these concealers and correctors. It’s a decent price. If you are a beginner to the makeup world, this product is amazing.
Revolution Conceal And Define Concealer
Shades -C6.5, C2 & C1
Price- £4.00 each.
THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT! I never use to like the old revolution concealer what cost £2.00, if anyone remembers that? I thought it was patchy and a waste of money. But my lord, I love this concealer. For £4.00 you can’t moan. It’s amazing. It covers everything. It covers spots what I usually cannot hide. It hides my dark circles and makes my eyes brighter. It makes life easy when you don’t want to wear foundation. Also, you can contour with it as well. I brought C6.5 for my contour shade as it works awesome with my skin. The consistency is just great. Lads & Girls, you need to buy this!
Revolution Pro Full Cover Camouflage Concealer
Shade – C1
Price – £5.00
Great product for covering just about anything! When they say full cover. They mean full coverage! Because just a little goes a long way. It’s an epic size for travelling. It has the lightweight feel. So, it won’t feel like you’ve plastered lots of concealer on your face, It’s a great product.
So what are your go-to concealers?
Till next time
