Today I’m going to be talking about a few of the different concealers I’ve been using for the past few years. I have quite a lot of acne scaring on my face and recently moved to Boston where it gets very humid in the summer so both coverage and longevity are my priorities when choosing a concealer. I didn’t put these in any particular order because I do see a lot of pros and cons for each of them depending on what you look for most in your concealer.
Like its foundation counterpart, the Born This Way Concealer definitely leaves a very natural and airbrushed looking finish. For me though, it doesn’t have quite as much coverage as I’m looking for in some of my problem areas. If very full coverage isn’t something that you need, then this is a great one to use.
The entire bareMinerals line is an oldie but a goodie for me- I’ve been using this brand since I was in high school and I keep coming back to it. This concealer is so light, I forget I’m even wearing any makeup. It is unfortunately light to medium coverage for me but I do still use it on days where I don’t have as much redness going on around my blemishes.
The MUFE concealer has really good coverage- enough for me to love it but it doesn’t seem to last on my oily skin for as long as I need it to for those super long days. I usually only wear it and the MUFE foundation when I know I won’t be out all day and will have a chance to touch up my makeup a bit. It is labeled as a waterproof concealer but I haven’t ever actually worn it in the water to be able to verify whether it holds up or not.
This one is currently my most reached for concealer. It has uh-mazing coverage and lasts all day, even in this summer heat. It is very blendable and easy to work with when you first apply it but it doesn’t budge once it dries so you do have to work a little quickly with it. It is my holy-grail concealer, I can apply it in the morning and go all day with it and not worry about it getting splotchy or fading as the day goes on. It’s also waterproof and I have actually worn it in the water and it held up great so that’s definitely a plus for me!
