Beauty Favourites Week – The Best Concealers

fit me best concealerWhen purchasing that perfect concealer. I always aim for something that will cover my dark under eyes, brighten and not crease. With some concealers that is way too much to ask. Today I am sharing with you the best concealers I have in my collection and why I love them. Again with foundations I generally own a few shades of my favourite concealers, for when I’m pale or tanned.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer $25 USD

Super expensive but literally is huge, so you are getting so much product for your money. I literally thought it was a mini foundation. I love that it has a large doe foot applicator because it makes it so easy to apply just a small amount and you are definitely not going to waste as much product, as you would a pump packaging.

Has the most amazing pigment and coverage. Girl this is full on coverage, at first I was a bit unsure about it because it is so full coverage. But after experimenting with it I love it. It will cover anything. I have mine in the shade light sand, which I find way to light when I am tanned. The joys of buying makeup online. I will definitely be picking up another shade that can work for me when Im tanned which is pretty much all the time.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer $7 USD

A staple in any makeup collection. Why? Because it is so cheap and works on so many skin types. I am literally obsessed with this concealer, I think I own 10 of them. I always pick them up when they are on sale in Australia for under $8. He thing about this concealer is that you need to apply quite a bit of product or it just wont work as well. I am generally always heavy handed with my concealer anyways so I don’t get this problem often. But if you are finding the concealer doent work for apply a little bit more then necessarily and make sure you really blend it out. For me I always use a beauty sponge when applying my concealer. I also make sure to set my concealer with a loose powder this will prevent creasing.

LA Girl Pro Conceal $5 USD

Another super affordable concealer. I think you could all agree with me that Shaaanxo started the craze of everyone loving this concealer. I used to find it interesting cause she always used her fingers to apply, When I personally use my fingers I feel like I take away the product rather then blend it out. The packaging of this concealer confused me when I first purchased it, it has a brush type applicator. At first I removed the brush and just squeezed product out of the tube. I then regretted that cause I was using way too much product, So don’t take th brush off the packaging it is there so you don’t use a lot haha. This concealers blends like a dream, has a decent amount of coverage and doesn’t crease under the eyes. Amazing right considering how cheap it is. It also comes it peach, yellow and green tones which each do something different to the skin. I use the green to go over any redness before applying my foundation. I have also seen people using these to contour, as the darker shades are the perfect undertone.

MAC Prolongwear Concealer $22 USD

I first purchased this concealer a few years ago because I heard Jaclyn Hill talk about it that many times. I can understand why the concealer is so popular. It is so full coverage, it has that much pigment that people have even used it as a foundation. However I am yet to try it that way. When applied under the eyes it doesn’t crease up and it covers redness and dark circles easily.

The biggest downfall of this product is the glass packaging. I have smashed two already. One fell off my vanity and smashed on the floor and another I dropped while taking a photo of it. So please be careful of that. Another downfall is the pump. You always pump out way too much product and of course it goes to waste. I have seen some beauty youtubers actually save the left overs in a sample pot because it literally pumps out too much product. As this product has a pump you have to apply the concealer with your fingers or brush. The Mac prolong wear comes in a large range of shades and undertones so you will be able to find your perfect shade for whatever purpose.

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer $9 USD

One more drugstore goodie I had to mention. Oh and its Maybelline, I seem to see a trend with my favourites posts now. This concealer I find very similar to the Fit Me, but the age rewind is designed to cover those under eye dark circles. It is so easy to apply. The top is a sponge applicator, simply wind the cylinder up to let the product come through the sponge, apply under you eyes, and blend out. Has a good amount of coverage to cover my dark circles, and doesn’t crease. I love this concealer the most because of the applicator, it is just so quick and simple when I’m getting ready for work.

    I’ve tried every concealer you’ve mentioned except for the tarte concealer. I’ve loved every single one I’ve tried and I so badly want to try the tarte concealer I know i’ll love it but the only access I have to it is through the tarte website itself. Great post. I’m glad I’ve discovered your blog.

        Yes I’ve just been trying to readjust my makeup spending habits. I like to focus on what i really really want. I am also eyeing that tarte in the bloom palette but next to makeup geek and color pop powder shadows I can’t be bothered for high end eye shadow palettes or eye shadow palettes in general. I may just get like 3 of the tarte concealer haha.

  • I’ve been so tempted to try the Tarte concealer! Looks so amazing, I didn’t know it was so huge!
