I'm not a big concealer user to be honest - well, I wasn't until I found some serious gems at the drugstore. In the past year, I've managed to accumulate so many amazing concealers and today I thought I'd do a drugstore roundup for all of us that are on a budget. Here we go ...
Essence Stay All Day 16h ConcealerA very creamy, but not too thick concealer that is the perfect shade to blend in with my skin but still lighten my dark circles. Applies with a doe foot applicator and does indeed last for quite a while - it doesn't just disappear like others do. Great for under eye circles, but I don't like it as much for blemishes. I think it's one of the least expensive ones at around 2-3€.
Collection Lasting Perfection ConcealerI really shouldn't even mention this one, as we all know it's all that ... I do have to say this is my least favourite out of the bunch though! It's very thick, almost to the point of being hard to use. But I decided to include it because it's inexpensive, has great coverage and is amazing for fair-skinned ladies - I have the lightest shade which is perfect for Snow Whites out there. It's about 5 pounds in the UK (available on Boots).
Catrice Velvet Finish ConcealerMy absolute favourite. No other concealer gives me such a perfect, porcelain finish. It covers up dark circles with medium coverage and feels so hydrating and moisturizing on the skin, it smells nice and doesn't sting or dry my skin (I have quite sensitive eyes). Absolutely lovely and a bargain at around 4€.
Essence Pure Skin Anti Spot Cover StickAnother bargain, around 2€. You surely think I'm crazy showing this stick which probably reminds us all of the concealers we used in primary school. But I find there is just no better for blemishes than a stick concealer! This one works well at drying as well, but I like to clean it and sanitize it every so often. While all of the others are more appropriate for under eye circles, this one is for you if you're battling blemishes.
There you have it, some amazing concealers for a fraction of the high-end price.
