Hey guys! So if you guys read my 2019 favourites post, you might remember that I mentioned wanting to try some new concealers. Well before heading into quarantine, I decided to pick up three drugstore concealers. It’s been two weeks now so I have tested these concealers. I compared all three to my all-time favourite concealer, the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. For reference, I use the shade Light 2 Vanilla.
So the first one I selected was the Maybelline Superstay Concealer. This concealer is a lightweight, full-coverage under-eye concealer. Now unfortunately I bought that is way too light for me. I purchased 05 Ivory and could probably use 10 Fair. So this concealer is disqualified just because I couldn’t wear it to be able to test it. I will be returning it. I haven’t decided if I want to pick up another shade yet. I will update you guys if I do.
I already own the NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer. I have the shade Beige which is perfect when I have a tan in the summer but is too dark most of the time. I wanted to pick up a lighter shade of this concealer, but I grabbed the NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Concealer. I got the shade Vanilla which is supposed to have a neutral undertone but I find it pulls slightly yellow. But otherwise I like this concealer. It has great coverage but doesn’t look cakey. And it lasted a long time.
The final concealer I purchased was the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer. I got the shade C2 which is fair with pink undertones. I really, really like this concealer. It’s very lightweight. Now it’s advertised as being full coverage but it’s not compared to say Tarte Shape Tape. But it doesn’t settle into my lines and it lasts well.
So how do these concealers compare? I think the NYX one has better coverage but settles into my lines more than the Makeup Revolution concealer. I do think that my Nars concealer is both of these, but they are close. My mom complimented my makeup when I was wearing the Makeup Revolution one!
My final thoughts: If you don’t mind paying more, than the Nars concealer is worth it. If you want more coverage go for the NYX, if you want a more natural look go for the Makeup Revolution one.
And that is my thoughts on some drugstore concealers! Let me know if you guys have any other concealer recommendations, or if there are other drugstore products you think I should check out!
