Coverup All My Sins

Concealer Stash

Me Me Me Correct & Perfect

This comes in a pot with a concealer and in the bottom it has a setting powder. I wear the shade buff. It is my perfect winter shade as it is quite light. The concealer takes a little warming up so it is easier to blend. I tend not to wear this under my eyes as it is a little drying. It works better as a blemish concealer & its good at covering up redness at the side of my nose

MUA Pro Base Conceal & Brighten Kit in Porcelain Beige

Not the greatest concealers I have tried. They aren’t a great match for my skin tone. I like the middle lighter shade best. But I don’t reach for this often as the product doesn’t last very long, it seems to slide right off me. Might be because I have really oily skin.

Benefit Boi-ing industrial Strength Concealer

Love this, it is heavy duty, again I use it to cover up blemishes and a little scaring I have. I find it a little too heavy for my under eye area. It does work if I warm it up and blend it in, but It does tend to crease on me. It works really well to cover up redness and stays put all day long.

YSL Touche Eclat

Not a concealer but I do sometimes mix it in with a darker concealer to add a little luminosity and that gives my under eye area more of a radiant look. I have dark under eyes and sometimes I need a product that gives me a little glow.


Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Brightening Illuminating Concealer 

Love this – it is that perfect combination of concealer and highlighter. I bought it whilst in America This is really hydrating, which I need and that means it doesn’t crease. It’s quite lightweight but still offers good coverage. It isn’t heavy duty coverage but if you’re looking for a light to medium coverage I recommend trying this.

Bobbi Brown Corrector 

A must on those days you need to counter the darkness. Its peachy tone is great for that. I need to blend it so well as it creases on me too. You only need to use a little of this and as it warms up its lovely to blend. I have the shade light to medium beige.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit

I wouldn’t purchase this again. It has a concealer and a pressed powder, it doesn’t work well for me. I find it too creamy and can’t seem to use it without it ceasing and I find it quite greasy too. For the price it doesn’t work well for me. I have the shade warm beige.


Rimmel Wake Me up Concealer

Now this is my new concealer obsession. I use this under my eyes and it gives me really good coverage. It is just creamy enough to blend and it never looks cakey or heavy. It is a bargain. If you haven’t tired this you need to buy it.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer

This isn’t for me. I find it drying and it never looks natural on me. I know it is loved and that many people like it, but I prefer the Rimmel one.

Do you use any of these concealers? Or do you have a favourite that you would recommend to me.

    I kind of agree with you on the Collection concealer, it goes so cakey on me if I’m not careful. I really like the Maybelline 24hr concealer which covers EVERYTHING while still feeling light and non-cakey on the skin but the colour is just too dark! I recently bought the 17 Phwoar Paint and it’s actually really good and a pretty perfect colour for me. It’s so difficult finding a perfect concealer, I feel like I’m on a neverending hunt!

    I really want to try the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer, but I always think the lightest shade is too dark for me – dilemma! x

  9. Actually I’m a big fan of the Collection concealer. It works really nicely with my skin.
    I’d love to try both the maybelline and rimmel ones, but the lightest shades are always so hard to find :(

  10. Callie Rose says:

    I HATED the Bobbi Brown concealer kit. It was far too creamy and just fell into every line it could :(

  11. I don’t mind that MUA one but it does tend to show up the creases under my eyes, I like the sound of the Rimmel one though. I have an Avon wand which is a nice consistency and seems to stay put!

  12. Paula Kemp says:

    I love, love, love the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer, it’s fab at concealing, brightening and making you look more awake, without sitting in any fine lines or looking cakey!

    I would also like to try the MAC concealer’s too.
