The Concealer Edit


Hello Lovelies, 

For the past while I have gotten abit obsessive with concealers, I have bought far too many in the past couple of months trying to find "the one". So I thought it was only right to share with you my favourites! These three I use for different purposes and would feel so lost if I didn't have one in my collection. 

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
This is the most recent purchase from the three I will be talking about. This was an impulse buy at the NARS counter but I could not be happier with it! It has amazing coverage so I actually use this for both under my eyes and on blemishes. It's name could not describe it better- "creamy concealer". It is such a lovely consistency, it is creamy, with brilliant coverage but doesn't look cakey or like it's sitting on top of your skin. It blends amazingly well and on me it lasts the whole day when I pop a little bit of powder on top. I have the shade Chantilly and I think I am actually going to pick up a slightly darker shade for the Summertime.

YSL Touche Eclat
Oh the cult favourite, now this is actually something I have had in my collection and loved for years but for the past six months or so I haven't really been using it. I received a new one for Christmas and got back into using it again. This is marketed more as a highlighter than a concealer but I love popping a little bit of this under my eyes. It really brightens up the area and gives enough coverage to get away with. It is great if you haven't gotten as much sleep as you would like the night before! This paired with the Touche Eclat foundation literally makes you look like you have been on a sun holiday and have got that natural glow to your skin. It makes you look so healthy and your skin instantly looks brightened.

Seventeen Phowwar Paint
Cringy name aside, I am in love with this concealer. This is my second one of it in a little over 6 months which I think is pretty good going and I'm already running low on this one too! This is a very heavy duty concealer that will literally cover anything! This has saved me many many times, I like using this for covering blemishes (even though it says on the packaging it's an undereye concealer...whoops!) Even though it is such heavy coverage and it is a cream product, again it doesn't look cakey which is something I've very wary of with concealers (nothing worse than a cakey mess on top of a blemish!) It is the cheapest out of the three and something I will always repurchase! 

So those are my three favourite concealers at the moment, they are all very different but I do love (and need!) them all. Please let me know what your favourite concealer is at the moment and what you use it for!


  1. I adore my YSL too! I can't live without it now :)

  2. The seventeen phowwar paint sounds great! Must try it! Great name ha! x

  3. I really want to try the Phwoar paint! It's so hard to find one that's half decent from the high street. I really like the Bourjois healthy mix concealer :)

  4. I love the soap & glory kick ass concealer at the moment x


  5. The 17 Phwoarr Paint sounds quite interesting - I've yet to try this one. I love the NARS concealers though, they do exactly what they say on the tin x

  6. I'm so desperate to try the YSL Touche Eclat! xx

  7. I have the YSL touché éclat and I was disappointed by it, this is the same for the seventeen concealer :(

  10. Ive been looking for a good concealer, and the Seventeen one looks good, and a cheaper option :)
