today it is all about concealing! which concealer work for me and for which parts of the face and for what purpose. there are rather expensive products like M.A.C and rather affordable products like COVERGIRL and rather cheap products by CATRICE and ESSENCE – BUT let me tell you, they all work for me! I wanna focus on the most expensive and the cheaper concealers.
29 CHF / 5ml
what is it about?
this is one of the best concealers for dry skin as it doesnt leave a dry feeling due to its minerals and nutrient-rich plant extracts. the consistency is creamy and it has medium coverage with natural light reflections.
where do I use it?
I use this concealer on my couperose cheeks and even though it doesnt have any green it cancels the redness. compared to other concealers I rarely use this one as a highlighter.
29 CHF / 3.5 g
what is it about?
I love stick concealers and I think they are super easy to handle. the MATCH MASTER concealer is a very a color true concealer with an average opacity for a natural, silky finish – and that is what I love about it, it does its job and conceals perfectly BUT its not cakey or looking too concealed at all. the concealer contain the same shade intelligence technology as the Match Master foundation series and therefore they run from 1 to 1.5. to 2 and so on.. they claim to last up to 8 hours. and I dont know if that is really true – all I know is that I apply it in the morning and it looks perfectly and when I look in the mirror in the evening it looks a lot faded and really asks for a touch up – in any case it depends what you are doing thru out the day.
where do I use it? concealing vs highlighting!
this concealer stick helps to cover dark circles and discoloration all over ones face and corrects them. I bought myself a rather light tone and I use it to highlight certain areas of my face (the bridge of my nose, my cubids bow, around my eyes) so in my opinion not all the concealers out there can do the job of a perfect highlighter like the ones from Estée Lauder or the famous one by YSL BUT this creamy stick concealer can!
NEW in my makeup collection are these two concealers:
MATCH 2 COVER
so I have only used this concealer twice and I love it already. so where to start, the price is awesome (around 3 CHF) the lighter shade suits my skin tone perfectlly but it is winter and my skin is rather fair. I have used it under my eyes and to conceal any redness around my nose and cheeks. the product is very creamy and rather matt than shiny and thats very good as I dont want to highlight my imperfections. I will keep on using this concealer and maybe I will get back to you about it. let me see.
another new concealer palette in my collection yay, and this time it has more than one and two shades, NO this time I have 5 different shades. lighter, medium and dark (perfect to conceal, contour or highlight) a rose and a green color and these are perfect to correct darker eyecircles and redness. green is awesome for redness and I mix the lightest and the green together and I use it on my cheeks to reduce the redness AND it works, yay! compared to the essence concealer this palette is a bit more expensive but you also get more options with it. (around 5 CHF) I have only used this product once so far and I have only used the lightes beige tone and the green. let me see if I will get back to you about this one too, so long!
hmm, a rather long blogpost about something so simple but I figured I wanna give you a better descriptions of the concealers I use. I hope you liked it and dont forget to visit my FB page and give it a LIKE!
