Sidney's Fav and Not So Fav Concealers
Now I know it has been a little while since I have written, but I am back!! Today I am gonna talk a little about concealers!! I have tried 5 popular concealers, Too Faced Born This Way concealer, Kat Von D Lock-it concealer, Tarte Shape Tape, NARS Radiant Creamy concealer, and Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind. I have positive and not so positive things to say about these concealers. First I will start with not so positive!
Out of the five the only concealer I refuse to buy again is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind. I have heard many YouTubers rave about how amazing this concealer, and when I heard it was Laura Lee's go-to drugstore concealer, I instantly bought it. I 100% regret buying that concealer! The thing I was most excited about with the applicator that is a sponge, sadly when I tried to put the concealer on, barely any product came out! When I saw Laura Lee use it, this was not the case, so maybe I got a dud! But that's not the only problem, it tends to become patchy and cling to dry patches I didn't even know I had. All in all, I do not like this product.
Another downer is the Too Faced Born This Way concealer. I had high hopes for this concealer, and sadly my hope was destroyed when I tried this. I find this concealer to do a better job at concealing smaller things like pimples or redness. Like the Instant Age Rewind concealer, it is very patch and clings dry patches. I am a true Too Faced fan, so I was very upset when I disliked their concealer.
Now on a better note, the Tarte Shape Tape. I love this concealer, but only with foundation. I could write an entire essay on just how amazing it is, but I won't. Instead I will tell you this, make sure you get the color that matches you the best and a little goes a long way. This concealer is very full coverage and sits perfectly on he skin. I know it is expensive, but it is worth the price.
Speaking of expensive, the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer. This concealer has been my go-to all summer. I use a very small amount and blend it out with my finger. It sits perfectly on my skin and can be set with or without powder. I wear this concealer with no foundation, and it doesn't look cakey for how think the consistency. I have tried many concealers, but these are the ones that really come to mind when someone ask me for what concealer they should get. Remember this is my opinion on the concealers, yours may differ from mine!!
