CORRECT & CONCEAL

Concealers
A couple of weeks ago I promised a post on my favorite concealers. Not just for under eye circles or highlighting, but for covering ugly, annoying blemishes. I have a plethora of high-end favorites for highlighting under my eyes, but I will save that post for another day. For now let's dive into the major correctors. Out of my collection, I've picked the products I feel truly cover bumps & blemishes and stay on throughout the day. 

NYX HD Photogenic Concealer {CW Porcelain} - I find this is the best drugstore concealer I have found. The concealer thick is enough to cover, but thin enough to layer. I strongly believe this is a must have, especially at $5!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer {Chantilly} - I have talked about this concealer before and it is a cult favorite among beauty gurus everywhere. It comes at a pretty cost, but you won't be disappointed. This concealer covers my under eyes, my dark spots and my blemishes. Sometimes concealers don't get rid of the redness or darkness, but this one definitely does.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer {NW15} - MAC's Pro Longwear concealer is another cult favorite. I have to say this is my favorite concealer for highlighting as well as for covering blemishes. A little goes a long way and the product will last you a very long time! The only con...if you drop the glass bottle it will most likely shatter {and you will probably cry}. 

Covergirl & Olay The De-Puffer Eye Concealer {310 fair} - This is a surprise favorite of mine. I tried this product after receiving a $4 off coupon. I was pining for the First Aid Beauty under eye de-puffer, but saw this and figured it might be comparable. The best part of the product is that it has a silver, chilly tip that helps reduce swollen under eyes. The concealer itself if nice and thick and makes you look quite awake.

Benefit Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer {01} - Benefit's boi-ing is an industrial concealer, meaning it's meant for hiding very dark spots and areas you want to disguise. I don't like to put this under my eyes because it is so thick, but I definitely use it to conceal spots on my face. 

Drum roll please! My all time FAVORITE!
MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 {NW15} - This is my absolute favorite concealer for blemishes. Like boi-ing I don't put this under my eyes, but it is the best product I've ever used for concealing major blemishes. The formula is very thick, keeping the product from sliding around your face. I've had mine for quite some time and I still have a lot of product left! I think every girl needs this in her life.

Thank you for reading and have a lovely Wednesday!

  1. I heard great things about the NYX HD Concealer and the MAC Pro Longwear one, but not the others. Right now I am using the ELF Lift HD Concealer...it works pretty good. Got it only for $4 at Target. I will definitely have to check out the other ones..especially that Covergirl one!

    1. I've never tried ELF's concealer - I will have to give it a look! And I wore the Covergirl concealer under my eyes all day with no creasing or mascara smudging.

    1. Studio Finish is $19 and the Pro Longwear is $20. It's hard to choose one or the other if I was to give my recommendation. Studio Finish is amazing for blemishes, but I don't wear it under my eyes - although you can! The Pro Longwear is the most amazing concealer for highlighting/concealing under the eyes.
