Concealer picks for this month’s current craze are:
Bumbum…bum bum…bumbum bumbum bum bumbum bum (did you just hum that in your head too?)
Watch out, it’s the number one pick: BB Cream Concealer by GARNIER!
Yes, I did mention this one in the BB Cream post. Yes, I am aware that this is a current craze about concealers, and not BB creams. No, I have not yet found my lost marbles, but I am not being crazy here! Cause let’s be real; if a concealer can double as a BB cream then it’s a win-win! There is some reasoning to my nuttiness!
Coming in second is the liquid concealer by Lancome. The other day I wasn’t wearing any make up because I was enjoying a lazy day, but when we decided to go out for dinner I applied a little bit of this under my eyes and on red spots instead of going for the full shebang with foundation , shadow and liner…
Mac studio finish concealer with SPF 35 is a close third. I use this as a touch up as it is lighter than the Garnier BB cream Concealer and can also help cover up a short night 😉 It lasts very long and you can apply it with either your finger or a concealer brush.
Technically not a concealer: Benefit, Stay don’t stray is a great base for a flawless complexion. It is also usable for a primer to eye-shadow (that is what it is being marketed as..)
Finally, I absolutely must mention another Benefit product..Confessions of a conceal-a-holic. It’s a concealing and brightening kit – a great travel along for when you don’t know what product to take with you. It contains two shades of concealers (Boi-ing, 1 + 2), erase paste (also concealing), eyelid primer, eye brightener and face brightening primer.
Not (yet) part of my collection, but equally tested and loved are; Clinique: All About Eyes Concealer and Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat. The latter is great for minimal makeup days when you just need a little bit of extra brightening. Estée Lauder Double Wear Concealer could also offer more coverage when the Touche Éclat isn’t enough. Also recommendable is Bobby Brown: Creamy Concealer Kit, because it comes with a great powder as well for an ultimately even finish (I bought myself the powder in large because it is also useful for the rest of the face..perfect, flawless cover!)
Question of the day:
Do you have a favorite concealer you religiously use?
Mine , obviously, is the Garnier one, but sometimes, like last Sunday, I mix things up a little. Don’t want this collection to go to waste 😉
With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
