My Favourite Drugstore Concealers

My Favourite Drugstore Concealers - Sweetaholic Beauty

Personally, I've never been much of a concealer wearer. I would use concealer for when I really want my makeup to look nice - like a formal occasion or special evening. However, I find when I do use concealer, it does make all the difference. Concealer helps to not only cover redness and blemishes but also helps keep my makeup looking flawless all day long.

So, I decided to share my top five drugstore concealers. Some of these were gifted to me, but the majority of them I have purchased myself.

Since concealer really does have a huge impact on my makeup, I have decided to try wearing it more often for my day to day makeup. I have found so far it really is making a difference. This has prompted me to whip out some of my old drugstore favourites. I don't think I've ever even purchased a high-end concealer, mainly for the fact that I never really wore it often enough.

I have tried my fair share of drugstore concealers, but these five are definitely my favourite. My all time favourite is the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin in Light*. This is one of the more natural colours I can find to suit my own skin tone, but it also has a full coverage without looking cakey. I have found the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory to be a fantastic illuminating base. This gives me a nice glowy complexion and is perfect for hiding dark circles. 

The Maybelline Master Conceal in Light/Medium* is a new one for me, but I have loved it's full coverage and lightweight feel. Much like the Super Stay Better Skin, it doesn't look cakey and gives off a natural appearance. Sadly the colour is slightly more yellow based, but I have found I can make this work with some of my foundations. One of the first concealers I ever tried was the Covergirl Tru Conceal in the lightest shade. I think this one has since been discontinued but you may still be able to find it online. This one has a lightweight formula which works really well for redness. I love to use this one on my entire face before application as it gives me a smooth base.

Last but not least is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in Fair. This is such a lightweight formula and pads onto the skin with the applicator, rather than being a thick foundation-like formula. This goes on smoothly and blends like a dream - dark circles be gone. My only gripe is that I find this sets into the fine lines around my eyes, so I make sure to use an appropriate primer beforehand and that certainly does the job.

1. Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin
2. Rimmel London Wake Me Up
3. Maybelline Master Conceal
4. Covergirl Tru Conceal
5. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser

I think that all of these concealers have a time and place in my makeup regime.
I love all of them - but now that I'm rediscovering the magic of concealer, I'm keen to try others too. What are your favourite drugstore concealers? Have any of your favourites made my list?

  3. I swear by Maybelline FitMe Concealer in Fair Clair. I'm always on the search for new under eye concealers, but for the rest of my face, that's my go-to. :)
