The Concealer Edit

- The Ones You Need -

Finding the right concealer for your skin type can be quite challenging and I have to say that I have been through a couple (a couple more) of different ones. I still haven’t found *THE* perfect one but over the last year a few have stayed in my routine and they are all good in their own way.

Glossier Stretch Concealer – This one is the creamiest of them all and when I say creamy, I mean it. It is very hydration and definitely gives you a glow under the eyes. Some days, I find it to be a bit too glossy and it creases in my eyelids. It doesn’t cover undereye circles that good but definitely gives moisture and leaves you with a natural glowy finish.

Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer  This is the cheapest and probably my favourite one. I always come back to this one because it is so easy to apply, has a good coverage and still gives you a glow. It doesn’t crease and looks really natural, brightening the areas where you apply it. I also like to use it as a foundation on days where I don’t want to wear a full face of makeup or on all my problem areas; spots, redness, … It is just overall a great product and the price is so reasonable.

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector  I must say, that this is the least exciting one from the list. It brightens the under-eye area, gives a bit of coverage but does nothing else than the other concealers. The good thing about it is that it has SPF 30, which I have never seen on any other concealer before.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer – If you want coverage, look no further! This concealer is so thick and the coverage is amazing! I got a sample and immediately had to buy it in a full size for ‘heavy eye bag days’ and it definitely does what it says. Just remember that a little bit goes a long way. So buy this if you want to say bye to your dark circles once and for all.

Benefit Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer – This one probably isn’t the best for covering dark circles. I used it a couple of times and the contour of my eyes got really dry. It has a really good coverage so it is perfect for covering up little imperfections and spots. It is very smooth but too dry on the skin.
