BUDGET BEAUTY SERIES: CONCEALER



(L-R: L'Oreal True Match, Maybelline The Eraser & Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection - Apologies for the grubby packaging, well loved and all that...)


Concealer is definitely one of my all time favourite make-up products to buy, I love trying and testing all different concealers that are available from cheaper brands to high end brands. There are so many good cheaper concealers on the market these days, so you don't have to fork out a ridiculous amount of money for a good quality one. These are my favourite budget concealers that you can purchase from either Boots or Superdrug and they are all really great value for money...


| Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer - £7.99 |

This strange looking concealer has to be one of the best under-eye concealer's that I have ever used. It has a nice light texture so it's not too heavy, it doesn't crease and it also has a slight brightening effect, banishing any dark circles or discolouration. Definitely give this a go if you have quite bad discolouration under the eye - but this is a no go for spots.The only thing that slightly puts me off is the applicator for this, it's not necessarily the most hygienic way of applying concealer and it can get a bit messy but if you keep it clean and use a make-up hygiene spray, there are no problems.


| Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - £4.19 |

I have used SO many of these concealers over the years and I really cannot fault this one. This is a great all-rounder concealer that can be used for concealing blemishes as well as under-eye concealing. The price is amazing too, the quality really is unbelievable for this price. This concealer only comes in three shades which isn't great but hopefully you can find one that works for you. This is slightly thicker in consistency than the other two concealers mentioned but don't let this put you off - it last's so well and really does cover everything up.



| Loreal True Match Concealer - £6.99 |

As mentioned in my Budget Beauty Series Foundation post here, I adore the L'Oreal True Match foundation and when I found out that there was a matching concealer in the range, I had to try it out, and I wasn't disappointed. Again, this is a good all-rounder when it comes to concealer - for spot concealing or under-eye circles, this is light enough for the eye area but still has enough coverage to hide any redness / blemishes.
