Thread: best concealer?

    best concealer?

    Hello ladies, what brand concealer do you use? What type of coverage does your concealer provide? What brand have you tried & hated? I'm trying to decide on which one to purchase & I have no idea which to get. I mostly want it for highlighting. Any suggestions?

    Re: best concealer?

    Dior skinflash would be a good one for that.
    I use Chanel creamy concealer or my makeup forever concealer palette when i really want to cover something though.

    I prefer MUFE and MAC; most hated Bobbi Brown--it very grayish under the eye.

    I prefer MAC Studio Finish SPF35, it covers my blemishes very good

    Re: best concealer?

    Right now, I'm using Amazing Cosmetics concealer. I love it. I would say it's a medium to full coverage concealer and a little goes a long way. I've used a lot of other concealers that I don't like such as Smashbox's concealer and MAC studio scuplt concealer. I find the smashbox one doesn't cover well and the MAC one feels cakey.

    Re: best concealer?

    I am NC35/37 in winter

    I use MUFE Full cover concealer in #10. I use it pretty much everyday. I'm just at the end of the same tube I've used for the past year. A lil goes a long way.

    I use MUFE HD concealer in #350 for under eye. The salmon colour cancels out the dark shadows. Not crazy about the thicker texture but that's just me.
    currently NC42, golden undertones

    Re: best concealer?

    I use MUFE HD concealer every single day. I wouldn't dare leave the house without it. It's creamy and smooth. It blends like a dream and it's an exact color match for me.

    My least face concealer is hard to determine b/c I've only tested them as opposed to buying them. Clinique is pretty bad. They don't seem to match my complexion. It always gives a gray cast to my face. Bobbi Brown was bad also.

    I use Mary Kay's Bronze 2 concealer. It's a good product and relatively inexpensive.

    Re: best concealer?

    I'm in the process of testing MUFE full coverage, MUFE camoflage, MAC studio sculpt, MAC studio fix, Illamasqua, Paula Dorf Victoria secret, and Amazing cosmetics concealers. So far Amazing cosmetics has out performed them all. The worst of the bunch MAC studio sculpt, MAC studio fix, and MUFE full coverage. They do cover blemishes and under eye circles but their staying power is only a few hours at most. Depending on the foundation I used with these some of them didn't even last an hour.

    Re: best concealer?

    I love to use on myseld MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW45... For concealing spots and under eye circle, use a red based one if you have dark or purple colored spots and use a yellow based one if you have red spots... just an FYI...

    But I have found that MAC Select Moisturecover works well on white women because their skin is more dry and wrinkly...

    Re: best concealer?

    Benefits Erase Paste is the worst concealer I've ever tried. My everyday concealer for under eyes is Bobbi Brown in Warm Beige. and MAC Studio Sculpt concealer in NW25 for blemishes and acne scars.

    I also like MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #8 in summer.

    Re: best concealer?

    I'm using MUFE full cover concealer at the moment and really like it a lot.

    I've used MAC select cover-up in the past but found this didn't give me the coverage I wanted or didn't last very long.

    And I've also tried Bobbi Brown creamy concealer, out of the three this is my second favourite after MUFE.

    Apparently ....whatever gave them that idea!?

    I like the Amazing concealer from Amazing cosmetics.. the coverage is great as well as the consistency. It is a bit pricey though.

    Re: best concealer?

    Since you are using it for mainly highlighting, I would use MAC's select cover up, its very light. If you need something heavier, I like studio sculpt with a slightly damp sponge. MUFE full cover would be really great as well, its a little heavier than select cover up.

    mac studio finish. i don't use foundation so it has to work well and stay with me all day because i only cover it with MSFN powder and out the door i go. highly recommend, it even covered up my friends tattoos.

    I LURVE the MUFE HD concealer. Works well, stays all day (I apply over moisturizer, then set with my MSF).

    Re: best concealer?

    I have tried almost every concealer possible. The one that I like the most and keep reusing has to be &quot;Amazing Cosmetics&quot;. I am NC50/NC45 and I used the Golden Bronze. I love this stuff. is kind of expensive but a little goes a long way...

    Re: best concealer?

    Hmm, hear great things about Amazing Cosmetics...thinking about trying them out.
    My biggest issue with my face are my under eye circles. I have tried Benefit's Erase Paste...Eh. Also tried MAC Studio Finish in a NW shade (I'm NC40) and that works ok, I think I like it better then the Erase Paste. Also tried NARS, didnt care for it for my undereye circles. I've used yellow and orange correctors, but still cant find that HG concealer.

    I use Laura Mercier Undercover Pot. The pot has 2 concealer for covering blemishes/spots and under eye. Both work very well for me! The one for spots is rather in the dry side but it does cover the flaws pretty good. The under eye concealer is creamy and easy to blend. In addition to that there is translucent loose powder for velvety finish!

    Re: best concealer?

    For highlighting, I have to recommend Make Up For Ever's HD concealer. It melts into the skin and highlights while it conceals. It's like a second skin. I've tried many concealers like Bobbi Brown, Mac and Ysl for example, but none worked to my satisfaction. Granted, MUFE's Full Cover is my preferred concealer, but it doesn't highlight like the HD.

    Iman has a Second to None concealer for $8.99, found at Target or Ulta. Sephora carries Stila which comes in a variety of shades but kind of expensive at $23.

    Re: best concealer?

    I like Bobbi Brown (golden with a peach corrector), once I got a MUA who was able to properly find my shade, it's been heaven for me. I did like MUFE HD (#355) but I found that it didn't have the staying power that I wanted. It lasted only about 3 hours before it was gone.

    I wear Too Faced's herbal concealer in Hollywood Medium. It's a golden peachy shade. It covers redness/darkness perfectly! My skin ranges from medium to tan throughout the year and it always covers perfectly for me. Plus it has extra ingredients that help ur soothe ur undereyes and heal skin issues! I <3 it.
