Whenever I’m posed with the question ‘what’s your number one makeup vice’ I flit between blusher, lipstick or even eye shadow depending on my mood. That was until I went on holiday and this question was answered once & for all when I noticed I had packed 5 different concealers for a 10 night trip alongside managing to purchase another 5 whilst away. Guess I’ve got a penchant for concealers 😉
I’m not sure whether it’s because they don’t tend to break the bank or whether it’s because I’m always trying to find something to cover up those pesky dark circles that simple refuse to diminish under my eyes, but I’ve managed to hoard an impressive number of concealers. A whopping 20 to be exact – told ya I had a problem!
Needless to say, each & every concealer doesn’t get used on a daily basis therefore in a bid to downsize and rediscover those fab favourites I’m putting them all to the test, exactly like my Foundation Challenge. Each & every one will be used, rated & decided whether it’s something I want to keep or bin.
Before I embark on this challenge, I wanted to call out my current daily faves that I’ve been reaching for these past few months. Firstly the tried & tested Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer which gives long lasting coverage without looking too heavy on the skin. Want something lighter for the weekend? Try the bareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer which is currently my go to daily favourite. Whilst away I nabbed the bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener in Luminous 1 to care for my puffy & jet lagged eyes alongside the infamous Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer just to see what all the fuss was about 😉
If that wasn’t enough I also came home with the Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Super Natural Concealer in Medium EC03. Having never previously tried a Kevyn Aucoin concealer, I fancied putting one to the test. I found the formula to be less drying in comparison to the Dior Diorskin Forever Undercover Concealer & the YSL All Hours Concealer so snapped it up!
It’s now time to put them all to the test, as much as I think I know who my favourites are, it’s time to level out the playing field & see who is left standing at the end!
