Whether it is dark eye circles or blemishes, chances are we all have used concealers which allows us to fake it till we make it!


NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

NARS’ #1, award winning concealer. This multi-action concealer contours, highlights, corrects and perfects with creamy, medium-to-buildable coverage and a natural radiant finish.

I love the chic and sturdy packaging of this concealer the most and it has a flat and pointy doe foot applicator that picks up just the right amount of product. The tube is also the perfect size to toss in your purse or clutch.

Enriched with hydrating, multi-action skincare benefits and light diffusing technology, it creates a soft and smooth complexion, and I found that it not only concealed my dark undereye circles well, it also gave a brighter, luminous finish to my undereye area.

I really liked the luxurious and creamy yet lightweight feel on my skin and it gave good coverage without looking cakey or heavy. Definitely deserving of the #1 concealer award in the United States!

Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer

Conceal, contour, highlight and retouch with this super perfecting, natural finish concealer/makeup hybrid. Fully loaded pigments provide maximum coverage with an undetectable finish for a look so flawless they’ll think you were BORN THIS WAY.

The first thing that struck me about this concealer was its size; with each bottle containing 15ml of product, it is definitely good value for money. This concealer is also infused with coconut water for moisture, alpine rose to brighten and hyaluronic acid to boost the skin’s hydration for a smoother looking appearance.

I found the texture a little too thick and heavy for my skin, and it also required more time to blend well into the skin. However, as it is so pigmented, a little goes a long way and it is perfect for covering up everything from dark undereye circles to blemishes.

URBAN DECAY Naked Skin – Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

Hide even your most scandalous flaws, Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer gives you buildable, even coverage with a luminous, semi-matte finish.

This ultra lightweight concealer contains anti-wrinkle peptides to improve skin’s youthful appearance and elasticity, Litchiderm to protect against dehydration, hyaluronic acid to retain moisture and Japanese green tea to revitalise the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines. I love using cosmetic products that provide coverage while containing ingredients beneficial to the skin.

The consistency of this concealer is very fluid and it was really easy to blend into the skin. It layered nicely for buildable coverage without looking cakey or dry and to my delight, it didn’t crease or settle into the fine lines around my undereye area. It also stayed put for most part of the day and left my skin looking bright and nice all day.

BECCA Ultimate Coverage Longwear Concealer

A water-resistant, full coverage concealer that instantly camouflages under eye circles, blemishes and discolouration while smoothing the skin’s texture.

This long-wearing concealer features an anti-oxidant blend of Vitamin E, squalene and manila honey to nourish the skin. I found the texture slightly creamy and easy to blend into the skin, though there was a tiny bit of settling into the fine lines under my eyes, making it less suitable for dry skin types.

I loved the medium to full coverage, which helped to cover my dark undereye circles quite well and it also managed to last through most of the day which showed the long-wearing capability of this concealer.
