Long time no speak, or read? I’m sorry guys, once again it’s the classic ‘work’ excuse and also it’s been my birthday and I’m now the big one seven. Watch out on the roads guys. I’m thinking of doing a birthday haul post soon when I have enough time but for now I’m gonna give you an idea of my favourite budget concealers!
Now we cannot lie to ourselves, we all have a mini break out now and then. Some more than others unfortunately. Apart from skincare, there’s not much more we can do apart from conceal conceal conceal! I don’t really try many new concealers as I tend to find a great product and then stick with it but there are a couple others which I’d also recommend.
1. MUA Conceal Cover Up
For only £1 of your money this will do the job for you. It’s really creamy and applies really well with a good brush (I use my Real Techniques Pointed Foundation Brush from the Core Collection). Only problem is that I don’t find it very long lasting, I’m always topping up and find myself slightly painting myself in concealer. There are 3 shades to choose from but with a bit of blending and the right powder it will end up looking the right colour and for the price you can’t really go wrong.
2. Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
For only £4.19 this has to be the best concealer ever.. So worth the money! It lasts for ages and I never feel that I need to top up unless I’m on a night out and even if I do, it’s only a tiny weenie tincy wincy bit. I find that this works best with a layer of foundation underneath as it can look slightly orangey in some lights and so it’s not really ideal on it’s own.
3. MUA Cover & Conceal
I bought this a week or so ago, just to try out and see how it goes since it’s only £1.50. I find it pretty similar to the Collection 2000 one but it’s more creamy and takes longer to dry so it’s much much much easier to blend which I prefer. I wouldn’t say it lasts as long but it’s pretty ideal for a hot summer day when you’ve not got much makeup on.
So there you have it, I’d recommend all these concealers and considering you could buy all of them for under £7 it’s really not a bad effort is it?
