Makeup Collection 2014: Concealers

Hey everyone!
Today I'm going to be showing you the concealers that I currently have in my makeup collection!


Tarte BB Tinted Undereye Corrector (fair to light)
I got this Tarte concealer in the Beauty Without Boundaries set from QVC earlier this year.  This is a corrector meaning that it is suppose to mask the appearance of dark circles and discoloration.  It has a more peachy or salmon like color to it.  I haven't used it in a while but it does a pretty good job of masking my dark circles.  I recommend setting it with a very light or translucent powder because a powder with coverage can make it look a bit orange.  The concealer is still available on the QVC website for $29, click here to see it.  You can also purchase it on the Tarte website for $34, click here to see it.




Sonia Kashuk All Covered Up Concealer (01 Porcelain)
Now I haven't used this concealer enough to say whether I love it or not, but I do still have some thoughts on it from the few times I've tried it.  This is suppose to be a full coverage concealer with a dewy or satin finish. The product comes in a jar and with the lightest touch you get a nice coverage, less is more with this product.  It seems to be a good concealer but I can't really say anything until I try it out some more.  You can purchase this at Target for around $9, click here to see it.












Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer (Radiant)
This concealer seems to be popular with a lot of people.  It was never my favorite concealer, I have very dark circles and this I feel like doesn't cover them as well as my Fit Me concealer but it does cover them.  It's good for a natural look.  The shade I have is Radiant which is suppose to be a good highlighting shade, but on me (I'm very fair) it is more close to my skin tone but for anyone darker than me (light, medium,etc.) it should be fine.  This shade has a very pinkish undertone to it so if you have more yellow undertones this might not be the best for you.  You can find this at your local drugstore, click here to see it.


Maybelline Fit Me Concealer (Fair)
So far I have to say this is currently one of my top concealers.  It has great coverage and it's just a great concealer, plus its from the drugstore.  I use it for my undereyes and any blemishes, it has a doe foot applicator and I definatly recommend checking it out.  It doesn't really crease to much (keep in mind that every concealer I have tried has creased on me) and I just set it with a powder and I'm good to go.  Great concealer and you can find it at your local drugstore, click here to see it.










Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer (Light)
This is the first concealer I ever got, it is a stick concealer.  I had purchased it before I was into makeup to cover up some blemishes that I had.  It is a good concealer, great for travel, and easy to blend.  As far as coverage its defiantly medium to full but I find that's the case with most stick concealers.  I haven't used it in a while but I do think its a nice concealer.  It comes in 8 different shades and it is $22 on the Tarte website, click here to see it.
 

Benefit Fake Up Concealer (01 Light)
Last but not least we have a "hydrating crease-control concealer" from Benefit.  Now I do like this concealer and I bought it at a time when my under eye area was a bit dry and I think it's hydrating (Keep in mind I haven't used this in a while).  I didn't find it to be drying at all.  It helped brighten my undereye circles and its a good product.  It is a stick concealer, downside being it only comes in 3 shades (light,medium,deep).  I think it's definatly a product worth trying, it was good at brightening and was hydrating.  You can get this anywhere that sells Benefit Cosmetics for $24, click here to see it.
                               




Those are all the concealers I own, I hope you all enjoyed this post.  Comment below and let me know what part of my makeup collection you want to see next.  Also let me know what kinds of posts you guys are interested in seeing.  Thanks for reading!
