High End Concealer Collection | Review + Swatches07:30:00
All of my concealers are high end because I find the colour range in the highstreet/drugstore very limited for covering my pigmented areas. Although my concealer doesn't last all day and I experience under eye creasing within 5 minutes of application, I still love the concealers that I own.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer- Currently NC42 for under the eyes
I couldn't even tell you how many of the concealers I have gone through. I've used this concealer for years and I even used it as foundation when I was in 6th form! I still go back to this concealer every now and then and when I do I always ask myself why I stopped using it. It's good coverage and not drying at all! It has a nice thick coverage but absorbs well into the skin so you have a nice natural finish. My only downside is the packaging, I waste so much product because I pump out too much product and when you're coming to the end of the product it's almost impossible to get the product out. I've tried removing the lid but that's almost an impossible task! I know that my mum uses this concealer too so it's definitely good for all ages!
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - Ginger
This is probably the thickest concealer I have ever used and definitely high coverage! I bought this after seeing so many people speak so highly of it, and for good reason too! It blends easily but you have to work it in fast as it dries really quick. I also find that it's slightly drying and I can't use it around my nose and on my chin where I have a lot of dry skin. Which is a shame because the coverage is really good! I always have to make sure I moisturise underneath my eyes first before I use this concealer to help it glide on easily. I love that they have a huge colour range in this concealer and I have my eye on the new radiant cream concealer in the pots!
Finally, is a concealer that I've really been enjoying using over the past few months. The NAKED weightless concealer really is what is says on the tin. It's light weight, doesn't feel cakey and is the most watery consistency out of the three high end concealers that I have. It still gives a decent amount of coverage but it's not quite pigmented enough for what I have to cover. I think this is nice as a highlighting concealer as it almost feels like a full coverage foundation. If you don't have much to cover then this concealer is perfect! I tend to use this when my under eye circles aren't as dark or if I'm going for a really light/minimal finish. Although initially as you apply this, it does seem full coverage but I find as I'm blending it out I end up picking up the product and don't get as full of a coverage as I would like.

I'd love to know what concealers you like for covering your dark under eye circles.
