the great concealer debate!

I am on the hunt for the perfect concealer! 

Most days during the week, I am a minimalist when it comes to makeup.  I like my sleep….so I don’t like to mess around with a long beauty regime. 

However, I am a true beauty product junkie and I love getting dolled up!  I only wear a full face of makeup….maybe twice a week. 

My minimalist routine involves concealer, a light foundation, blush and bronzer.  I won’t even do anything to my eyes.  (I’m sure many of you think I’m crazy! haha!)

So, back to the topic of this post.

I am looking for the B E S T concealer out there!  I have tried several over the past year and just haven’t been satisfied.  Here is what I have tried lately:

Cover Girl Fresh Complexion Concealer

I think this one was too thin and watery.  I didn’t get much coverage.

Bare Essentuals Bisque Concealer

I kind of like the one.  It’s weird….some days I do and others I don’t.  I really don’t like it under the eye area.  It is too powdery and dry.  I’m not sold.

Cover Girl Invisible Concealer

I liked this one better than the other Cover Girl one I tried.  But I still don’t love it.

So….those are the products I have tried as of late. 

Here are a few I am itching to try:

Tarte Creaseless Concealer

I have heard good things about this product.  I also have Tarte eyeshadows….and I LOVE them!  So, I thought I might like their other products.

Laura Geller the real deal concealer

I hear that this one is heavy duty….but not thick and cakey.  It has a lot of really good reviews. 

Do you have a favorite concealer? 

I would LOVE to know your favorite products.  Or what have you been wanting to try?

Can anyone else spend hours in Sephora?  hehe! I love it. 

Let me know your thoughts!

Happy Tuesday!

xo,

Amanda

I use Neutrogena liquid concealer with eye cream in it for under my eyes and I use the bare minerals bisque for the rest of my face. :D

I too use the Neutrogena liquid concealer with eye cream. It comes in a tube and you squeeze it out. I like Bare Minerals for the rest of my face, but when I need a little extra under my eyes this does the trick!

I, too, could spend hours in Sephora! I don't use concealer so I'm no help. :)

I love that you're doing this! I use physicians formula but I noticed it shows up on camera if the flash is on... I look like an owl. So I'll be itching to hear of better :)

I love Sephora too! I don't have any concealer, but I have spent time trying to find the perfect foundation. The one I love is from Arbonne. Others I have tried irritate my skin except this one. The only problem is that it is soo expensive! I wish I could find a cheaper one.
