My Concealer Collection

26 comments
Hello Lovelies,

I hope you are all well and slowly getting all your Christmas shopping done! I attempted to do some online this evening but ended up buying 3 things for myself and nothing for anyone else, so I've given up and decided to do a  blog post for you all instead before 
This post is all about my concealer collection. Like most Beauty Bloggers, I own quite a few concealers. Some I reach for more than others and here's my little collection:
1. Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
This concealer is one of my favourites. It's thick, it's creamy and it blends into the skin perfectly covering blemishes as well as under eye circles. It's also a bargain for £4.19. The only downside to this concealer is that the colour range is pretty basic but if you can find a shade that matches you I can highly recommend this product!
2. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer 
This product is more of a highlighter than a concealer, perhaps similar to the YSL Touche Eclat. It's a pen that you twist up to disperse the product and the applicator is a brush. I use this on top of concealer and it gives a nice radiant glow, but the coverage for me isn't good enough to conceal my dark circles.
3. MAC Studio Finish Concealer 
I love this concealer! It covers blemishes, scars, redness, freckles, moles, spots and anything else you might want to cover really well. The product is quite thick but it blends into the skin effortlessly. If I could only keep one concealer from my collection this would probably be it, even though I don't really use it under my eyes as the product is a little bit to thick for the thin and delicate under eye area.
4. Benefit Boing Concealer
Benefit market this as an 'industrial strength' concealer. I used to really like this until I discovered the MAC Studio Finished concealer. Since then Benefit Boing has been sitting in my collection feeling very unloved...
5. Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer 
I have read so many fantastic reviews about the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. As I don't really need any foundation at the moment I decided to pick this up instead. It's  a good product but not quite as good as the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer so I probably wont be repurchasing this once I've used it up.
6. Garnier Anti Dark Circles Roll on Concealer 
This concealer is a roll on pen. The colour if this has peachy undertones which is great for concealing under eye circles. It also feels quite cooling when you roll it under your eyes. The coverage is quite good as well and I should probably reach for this more often than I do!
7. Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Clearing Concealer 
I've used this concealer once or twice in about a year. It's very thick so you only need the tiniest amount. If you use too much of it, it looks cakey and it's not very easy to blend either. Definitely won't be buying this again!
8. Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer
This product is great! It's thick and creamy and blends beautifully into the skin. 
The only downside is that it's quite easy to squeeze too much product out of the tube. I'm almost out of this so I will probably re purchase one it's all gone.
9. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
I really wanted to love this but I don't. The packaging is just rubbish as one pump disperses far too much product. I also bought it in an NC, whereas for under eye circles it's definitely better to buy MAC Concealers in NW as the pink undertones in NW hide dark circles better. The coverage is good and it is long wearing, but I prefer my MAC Studio Finish Concealer  over this one!
What's your favourite concealer? And which ones don't you rate as much?

  3. Great post! Now I'm using Garnier roll on for my dark circles, and when I really have a bad night use my concealer from Kriolan (german brand), very similar to MAC studio finish, but a little bit creamier. Also love the sutdio finish in NW25 for my frekles and blemishes.

    1. Personally I'd go for Collection 2000 but the Rimmel One is nice too! It's always nice to try new products anyway, or get both when it's 3 for 2 ;) xxx

  6. I LOVE Mac studio finish but I actually really like the pro longwear! I do agree that the packaging is horrible and dispenses far too much but I love the finish and coverage! Still at the moment though (and for the past while) i've been in love with make up forever concealers! x

    1. I've never tried MUFE Concealers but I really want to heard so many good things about them! I think I prob bought the wrong colour of the pro longwear which is why I don't really like it much xxx

  12. I only own two concealers but use them both loads! One is the Collection Lasting Perfection one and the other is Benefit's Erase Paste. It's expensive so I tend not to use that one so much but I love it nevertheless.

  15. Hello ladies!
    I'm from Portugal and I'm thinking of buying the Collection 2000 concealer on ebay. I just need a little help. I use MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in shade NW30. Should I purchase the Collection 2000 in Light or in Medium?
    For my face I use Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in C3 (kind of NC25 but less yellowish).
    The Garnier I'm afraid it won't cover my really dark circles.

    Kiss kiss
