Hello and happy Sunday. I feel like I haven’t posted a haul or a review on makeup products that I use on a regular basis in a long while, so recently, while I was doing some cleaning up I noticed how many different concealers I had, and decided it would be a fun idea to share with you my thoughts on them. Let’s get started, shall we?
The first ones I want to show you were actually in my empties bin, so I’m not currently using them. I’ll let you know whether I plan on buying them again or not.
I didn’t think I’d love this concealer as much as I did, but towards the end I literally had to scoop up whatever was still in the tube because I felt like my everyday makeup wasn’t complete without it. I like concealers that have the sort of texture that is liquid enough to easily blend, but also thick enough to do the job of concealing the dark circles under my
eyes and any redness on my face. It has a doe foot applicator, which I like, although I know some people don’t find it the most hygienic. I can get this concealer at the drugstore, so I’ll definitely buy it again soon.
I got this in one of my Ipsy glam bags, and I instantly fell in love with it. If you want a full coverage concealer, then get a stick, or a crayon, or a pot concealer because these have the thickest texture. Now, because of the texture, this is not as easy to blend in, but if I’m being completely honest, I really didn’t any blending when using the concealer crayon, I just applied it and then worked everything into my skin once I put foundation on. The downside is, it broke and I couldn’t use it anymore. This has happened to me with other c
rayon products and I don’t even try to fix them, I just throw them away. Maybe the full-size version is a little sturdier. I would like to keep trying stick concealers in the future, whether they are Trestique or another brand.
This is one of those products that have sort of a screw at the bottom you have to turn in order to get the stuff coming from the tip. I’m not a fan of those products at all, so I had a little trouble working with this concealer. That being said, it has a nice, almost powdery texture, and it works wonders highlighting the under-eye area. I prefer other concealers to this one, but if it were super discounted or (for some crazy reason) the only product available, then I’d buy it again.
I bought this because everyone on YouTube was talking about it and I’m that kind of person, okay? It has a screw-system, so the first applications were a little dreadful, I was very annoyed and asked myself a couple hundred times of the reason why I thought it was a good idea to get that concealer in the first place. After a few times of trying, I finally discovered the successful way to apply it and I fell in love. Seriously. This is my ride-or-die concealer, and if I were to spend the rest of my life wearing only one product, I’d choose this hands down. It is especially great covering dark circles and making me look like a functioning human being. I need to buy a new one, but like the Better Skin concealer, I can find it at the drugstore or the supermarket, so I’ll get it soon.
Now for the products I’m currently using.
This thing is like magic in a pot. It is super thick, but it does justice to its name. I mean, with this you’ll get to easily cover up just about any darkness or redness in your face. I use this under my eyes and as a regular concealer when I’m wearing a ton of makeup, like on special occasions, but I usually put it on my eyelids as eye primer.
I got this in an Ipsy glam bag and I’m absolutely in love. I thought the packaging would be inconvenient for me, but so far it hasn’t been, I just put some on my hand and then apply it to my under eyes or redness using a sponge or a brush. It is more liquid than other concealers I’ve tried, but at the same time, it’s more full coverage, so I’m keeping it for special occasions, and not just for everyday use.
I don’t like ranting about makeup or beauty products because I genuinely want to like everything I buy or get. I think that’s why I left this concealer for last; it’s the only fail out of all the products I’ve hauled and reviewed in this post, but I need to share my thoughts on it. I talked about this concealer when I did my August glam bag unboxing and I was kind of harsh then, but now I’m going to be brutal. This concealer is horrible because it literally does nothing. When you apply it, you see this nice, pigmented shade with a promising texture, and then you go to blend it and it’s chaos. I’m not kidding, this dries down in the weirdest way, and then if you try to blend it with a sponge or a brush, it’ll crack and you’ll be able to see the strokes as well as basically every skin cell in your face. I seriously need to buy a new concealer for everyday looks.
Do you use concealer? Which is your favorite one and why? Let me know in the comments!
Love, Miss Camila
