A Make Up Staple: Concealer I Can’t Live Without

Concealer for me is one of those things which I absolutely cannot live without, it’s my ride or die (that’s what the kids these days are saying isn’t it?)

I love how brightening it can be and it can literally make you look so much more awake in seconds. You can use it lightly without foundation to perfect your face slightly or layer it up on those bad skin days. There is one concealer that I have used for years and always have a tube handy in my make up collection, I’m sure everyone generally knows about this one by now as it’s a popular beauty gurus favourite but it’s also so cheap and just such a good concealer. The Collection Lasting Perfection 16 hour Wear Concealer really is as good as everyone says it is. With this in your make up collection, you don’t have to worry about how you’re going to conceal problem areas as it is all you need.

Recently though I have found myself reaching for another concealer which does rival it, but I’ve actually found that they are incredibly similar. The Seventeen Stay Time 18 Hour Full Coverage Concealer is one that I haven’t been using long, but that I have been reaching for a lot recently. It has got a lighter consistency than the Collection Concealer (which is quite thick) which I think makes it slightly easier to blend but because of this, it is also a tiny bit lighter coverage. If you didn’t get on with the collection concealer then I would suggest giving this a try.

Now I have heard rumours that Boots are discontinuing the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer, I don’t know if this is true or not but I think that’s a bit of a shame considering how good it is. They are around the same price however the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is a tiny bit cheaper and you can get this most places. If someone was building up their make-up collection or just looking for a concealer that does a great job without breaking the bank then I would highly recommend both these two concealers.

Have you tried either of these? I would love to know what your favourite concealer is or what make up product you can’t live without. Make sure to follow me on Instagram and Bloglovin to keep updated!
