Concealer Hunt

I'm quite fussy when it comes to concealers and i have to say until recently i hadn't found my holy grail concealer. The first concealer i tried was the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer which was alright but it wasn't the best and since it was also a highlighter which looked terrible in flash photos. However now that I'm better at makeup then i was 2 years ago, I think I might give it another go as it would look good to brighten up my under eye. Just not on any spots or blemishes.

Hate using stock photos but i currently don't have the product.

I then went for Maybelline Dreamlumi Touch Highlighting Concealer which was again good but still wasn't what i was looking for and it creased under my eyes after a certain time. Also it wasn't the best at covering spots. At this point, I realise now that the problem was with me for picking two highlighting concealers instead of a matte one.

In 2013, around the time of my graduation i went on a hunt to find the perfect concealer and after reading thousands of reviews and watching tons of youtubers rave about it, i settled on the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer. It was amazing! It was creamy, covered up everything from spots to dark circles and only creased a little. If you used just enough, it almost didn't crease at all. I used it for a good 6-7 months and then i ran out of it. I went to the Bobbi Brown counter to get a new one and i had limited time so i just told them to color match by looking at my face (IDIOT). I thought i got the exact same shade but turns out i got Warm Beige instead of Natural Tan. It wasn't a big deal though because it was even a better match for my skin. Plus the shade wasn't that badly matched. The problem i had with it was that it wasn't as creamy as the first pot. I don't know if that's even possible but i felt like something was off and that the formula wasn't the same as the last one. I got it from the exact same store, it was the same name; "Creamy Concealer" but it just wasn't the same texture. So slowly i stopped using it and just used my Nars Tinted Moisturiser as a concealer and set it with powder. Overall the Creamy Concealer is a wonderful concealer, I just don't know why those two pots felt so different. Maybe it was my skin? I'll never know.

When i went to Boots a few months ago though, i instantly went to the Collection counter and looked for the concealer. After hearing only good things about the product, I knew I had to try it. They only had the shade 3 which seemed a little dark for me so i decide to go to another store and check all the colors. On my last day in London i went to another Boots and again(!) they only had the shade 3. I color matched on my hand(I'm just an idiot when it comes to color matching) and decided to pop two tubes in my shopping bag. I would've gotten 5 tubes but they had 2 left. That's how confident i was about this concealer. 
I started using it and i have to say; It is everything i look for in a concealer. It conceals perfectly, it is not cakey, it doesn't crease under the eyes(although it brings out my lines after a few hours, not exactly creasing though..), it is exactly my shade, it is very light consistency, doesn't feel sticky when you apply it and dries to a semi matte finish. It is perfect in my eyes! I'm already thinking about what I'm going to do once i run out of those two tubes! It's that good! 

Have you found the perfect concealer for you yet? What is it? Any future recommendations for me?

  2. Love Bobbi Brown! I love it because my skin has a yellow undertone, so finding shades is no problem! But the problem is Bobbi Brown tends to be more costly.
