Concealers are my number #1 essential in my everyday makeup bag. I have tried and tested several dozen concealers over the years and have compiled this list of my all-time favourite high end concealers. It’s important to note that I prefer a heavier duty full-coverage concealer, so if you are more in to a lighter coverage this list may not be for you. So without further ado, here are my top 5:
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ‘Crème Brulée’
This concealer is exactly as described, radiant & creamy! It glides on beautifully under the eyes and over blemishes and blends like a dream. I find I don’t have to set this concealer with powder as it sets naturally. It also stays true to colour and doesn’t oxidise which I appreciate greatly. The biggest con I have found with this concealer is that it seems to run out a lot quicker than all my other liquid concealers.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer ‘Light’
Im still new to blogging yet I feel like I have already mentioned the Tarte concealer several times already now! But I mean it when I say, this is such a must-have concealer! The coverage is amazing, it lasts all day and you only need the tiniest amount. I see a lot of people slathering loads of this underneath the eyes but there is really no need? I promise you, one dot of product is enough. The only massive con about this concealer is that I can only find it on the QVC UK website and it is very expensive on there. I am literally counting down the days until Tarte launches it’s own shop in the UK, please Tarte!!
Estée Lauder Double Wear Concealer ‘Light’
This concealer looks so flawless under the eyes. It is super pigmented with a medium to full coverage and stays on all day. I really like the consistency of this and I can smoothly glide it under the eyes and it blends out nicely. I also love that Estée Lauder have such a vast shade range available for this concealer to fit almost anyone.
NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ‘Crème Brulée’
Nars are seriously winning the concealer competition as two of their concealers have made it into my top 5! I love that even though this is a cream product, it is not thick or cakey what so ever. The concealer feels soft, smooth and creamy. Such a dream to apply to imperfections and is full coverage.
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye ‘Medium’
If you suffer with very dark circles like myself, a thicker coverage concealer like this one is something I would always recommend as a must-have! I squeeze a pea-sized amount of this under the eye and the darkness vanishes. I honestly feel like I’ve performed a magic trick after I’ve used this, the difference is incredible. It is pricey, however, it has lasted me an entire year and that’s with daily use.
Here are all the concealers swatched and labelled, the colours vary depending on whether I am fake tanned or not and the colours work perfectly for me. For a reference I am NW20 in Mac.
