Concealer – The good & the bad.

31 Jul

Let’s face it, we all have blemishes we want to cover up.  May it be redness, acne, spots or undereye circles.  This is where concealer is the cosmetic champ.  I have used so many different concealers in my life, especially dealing with acne.

This is my new favorite one:

Ecco Bella FlowerColor Coverup $17.95

What’s so great about it?  Well, its all natural.  I am trying to use less chemicals on my face when I can.  However, it is not vegan as it uses Beeswax.   It’s super easy to apply, very blendable and doesn’t crease.  The lightest color – Beige #1 is light enough for my fair complexion and it isn’t orangey.

Here is a concealer I totally hate  but wanted to like.

e.l.f. Studio Concealer $3

What’s so bad about it?  Ok, it’s $3 bucks so it was worth the risk of trying.  I like so many other e.l.f products but this one just falls flat for me.  It’s super greasy, don’t blend well, doesn’t cover well and just looks chalky.  Maybe my skin is too oily for it or something.  Additionally I found it to appear orange when applied to my skin.

Have you tried either of these products?  How did they work out for you?

    Great to see a post on solid concealers. Everyone seems obsessed with liquid ones at the moment but they really aren’t as good for blemishes. I use Maybelline coverstick which is very good.
