Concealer off using my favourite concealers!


These are a few concealers which Ive tried and consider to do the job pretty well! These are ones which I wear on a daily basis to cover under my eyes, conceal any blemishes, use as a highlighter under my cheek bones or under my brow arch!

Texture- light

This concealer is one of the most amazing concealers I've tried, but its verrrrry expensive. It has anti ageing properties inside for older skin with firming active ingredients to make your wrinkles disappear. Now I can't say that I've experience any of the effects of the anti ageing properties but I've heard from several people that they actually work! The reason I like this so much is because it is one of the only few concealers I've found which doesn't sit in all the creases in your eyes- which I hate. My eyes get really dry around them (the only part of my face that does) and there's nothing more annoying than wanting to cover up my dark dark bags but once I've covered them my eyes look all dry and almost crispy. It's either one or the other! The mini application sponge is noticeably softer than others on this (I kind of hoped it would've been for the price) and also a little goes a LONG way with this. The thin texture completely covers up and brightens under the eyes leaving them literally looking flawless, I find I can wear this without no other makeup on, and just use it to cover my eye bags!

Ingredients:
AQUA/WATER, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, DIMETHICONE, POLYETHYLENE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL DICAPRYLATE/DICAPRATE, GLYCERIN, PEG/PPG-18/18 DIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, BORON NITRIDE, SODIUM CITRATE, TOCOPHEROL, DEXTRIN PALMITATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, QUATERNIUM-90 BENTONITE, TALC, PENTYLENE GLYCOL, ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, CYCLOTETRASILOXANE, LAUROYL LYSINE, DISODIUM STEAROYL GLUTAMATE, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, METHYLPARABEN, TETRASODIUM EDTA, HIBISCUS ABELMOSCHUS EXTRACT, POLYMETHYL METHACRYLATE, DEHYDROACETIC ACID, ALCOHOL, DIMETHICONOL, SILICA, XANTHAN GUM, PALMITIC ACID, +/- (CI 77891 / TITANIUM DIOXIDE, CI 77492 / IRON OXIDES, CI 77019 /MICA, CI 77491 / IRON OXIDES, CI 77499 / IRON OXIDES). (T0131/A)

Would I repurchase? No, mostly because the price is a bit off-putting!

Texture- heavy

Being a little smaller than the others this has one bigger and better quality; its waterproof. Till the point that you have to do some work to get it off your face. This can be seen as either a good thing or a bad thing, it's heaviness can be some peoples nightmare as it may patch up.

But then it can also be seen as a good thing for people who have serious black circles or things they want to cover up, as it will sure do that and stay on all day! This is also a concealer that doesn't crease (winning!). 


Ingredients:
All shades Ingredients: Caprylic/capric triglyceride, bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-2, VP/hexadecene copolymer, cetyl alcohol, silica dimethyl silylate, microcrystalline wax/Microcristallina Cera/Cire microcristalline, tocopheryl acetate, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, ascorbyl palmitate, passiflora edulis seed oil, titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499).

Would I repurchase? Yes, but only to wear in the winter months when that extra thick coverage is needed.


Texture- light but buildable 

This is very similar to the byterry one in the way that it's very light and smooth to apply but covers everything you could imagine. It blends in with your foundation very nicely and is made with Matrixyl 3000, green tea, Litchiderm which is derived from Lychee fruit, which all contributes to reveatalising and helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines whilst giving a semi-matte finish.

Ingredients:
Cyclopentasiloxane, Aqua (Water/Eau), Butylene Glycol, Silica, Cyclohexasiloxane, Glycerin, Litchi Chinensis Pericarp Extract, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Dimethicone, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Sodium Chloride, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Phenoxyethanol, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Caprylyl Glycol, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Propylene Carbonate, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carbomer, Polysorbate 20, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hexyl Laurate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1

Texture- light to medium 

This product is Alcohol free, paraben free, synthetic fragrance free and non comedogenic. It's super long wearing and it's very moisturising and for people who suffer with acne and dry skin this can be a god send! When I get a few spots or something before the end of them fading they tend to dry extremely and I find it so hard to find a concealer which doesn't make it look flaky. Although it claims to be 'crease-free' it isn't as good as other concealers I've tried crease-wise. It's semi matte finish a long with the moisturising properties pair together to make a lovely concealer for sensitive skins.

No ingredients are listed for this product on NARS's website. 
Would I repurchase? Yes.


Texture- light but easily buildable

This is available in all different colour shades, green, purple, orange. I found that this product was very similar to Benefit's Erase Paste.  In the way that they look the same but also the formula is very similar, they both leave a similar look on your skin and both brighten up under your eye a lot whilst covering dark circles. This is extremely moisturising because of the formula and I like to use it to dab over any little bits of my face I want to brighten up or conceal. This is probably one of the best concealer pots Ive used and for such a good value! 

Ingredients: 
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Ceresin, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Hydrogenated Microcrystalline Wax, Aluminium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Isopropyl Isostearate, Polycyclopentadiene, Isododecane , Sorbitan Stearate, Paraffin, Glycol Montanate, Synthetic Wax, Silica, Phenoxyethanol. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Mica , Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Chromium Oxide Green (CI 77288), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Yellow 6 Lake (CI 15985).

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Texture:- Heavy

This concealer is extremely pigmented and is a very thick formula. Its awesome for concealing and covering up parts of your face because of how thick it is but its extremely hard to blend. It's amazing for those oily skin warriors out there like myself as its not oily at all so won't make us oily throughout the day but its a hard product to use because its not really creamy and hard to build. I also can't say this is the best in regards to being crease-free, It's certainly better than other concealers I've tried before but not as good as I would imagine. This is perfect for you if you are wanting a thick base on your face!

Ingredients: OCTYLDODECANOL, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, OLEYL ALCOHOL, CERA CARNAUBA (COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX), CANDELILLA CERA (EUPHORBIA CERIFERA (CANDELILLA) WAX), CERA MICROCRISTALLINA (MICROCRYSTALLINE WAX), CERA ALBA (BEESWAX), CETYL ALCOHOL, VP/EICOSENE COPOLYMER, TOCOPHEROL, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE) AND MAY CONTAIN: [+/- TITANIUM DIOXIDE CI 77891, IRON OXIDES CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, CARMINE  CI 75470, FERRIC FERROCYANIDE CI 77510, ULTRAMARINES CI 77007, YELLOW 5 LAKE CI 19140,  ALUMINA, TIN OXIDE] (EU EXCLUSIVE SHADES MAY CONTAIN: CI 12085, CI 15985) MAY CONTAIN CARMINE AS A COLOUR ADDITIVE.
