• My concealer collection

Hi lovelies!
Concealer is not my favorite makeup product. But when it comes to covering imperfections I won't stop till I find the perfect one! This is my concealer collection so far and a tiny review for each one.

Oriflame Top Secret Concealer in James Bond (dark) and Mata Hari (light)
This is out of production now. It comes in a stick form. It's creamy but not too much. It's good for covering pimples but it doesn't work for the under eye area because it sets in fine lines.

Korres Wild Rose Concealer in WRC3
This is the twist and brush type packaging. Liquid concealer, not too watery, good quality, decent coverage. It's also good for highlighting face areas without shimmer.

Seventeen Ideal Cover Liquid Concealer in 04-Nude
Ideal cover? No no no. This is more a highlighter than a concealer. It doesn't cover and it has subtle shimmer. Liquid product with doe foot applicator, a little watery.

Essence forget it! 3in1 concealer
This is the color corrector trio most brands offer for higher prices. I use the light green for redness and the light pink for the under eye area. It gives some light but you'll maybe find it too light when used alone. The beige colour I haven't used a lot because it's a little dark for me. I tried to mix the beige and pink to apply in dark circles and it works but the formula isn't great for this sensitive area.

Nivea Beaute Stay on cover stick in 09 Beige
Very creamy stick concealer, very good coverage. A little heavy for under eye area, it doesn't need powder but it definitely needs cream underneath. 

Oriflame Very Me Click it concealer in pink
This is a liquid, doe foot applicator concealer. The colour is more like salmon so it's perfect for the dark circles. Good coverage but not so good staying power.

Essence stay all day concealer in 20 soft beige
Liquid, doe foot applicator concealer. I love this one for dark circles. Very good coverage, very good lasting power, doesn't set in the fine lines.

E.L.F. all over cover stick in Honey
I use this one for face only because the colour is dark for under the eyes. Creamy consistency, comes in a stick form.

There is also the Garnier Roll-on anti-dark circles (photo here) which I also use as a concealer because it gives good coverage and doesn't set in fine lines. But it's not an eye cream, if I don't use eye cream underneath it makes my eye area dry.

If you've found the perfect concealer or if you have and like/hate any of the ones above, I'd love to read your opinion :)

P.S. So sorry I don't blog frequently these days, I have exams till the end of the month, then, I'll come back! Do you also have exams? Or do you enjoy the sun and the sea?

P.P.S. Today is the biggest day of the year! How/where are you spending it?


  1. I had good luck with Seventeen's Ideal Cover, I was using Bobbi Brown's Corrector for a long time but it's not good for summer, the texture is thick and settles on fine lines, plus it creases a lot with the heat, Seventeen's is very long lasting , doesn't cover a good as the BB Corrector but it doesn't look weird after 2 hours.

  2. Νομίζω ότι το ιδανικό το βρήκα! Είναι υγρό κονσίλερ της radiant(βαριέμαι να πάω να δω ετικέτα) και κάνει πολύ καλή δουλειά για τους μαύρους κύκλους. Είχα μισήσει ένα κονσίλερ (βασικά όχι το ίδιο όσο την υπάλληλο που μου το πάσαρε ως καταλληλότερο) που ενώ το ήθελα για κάτω από τα μάτια ήταν στικ μπεζ-πράσινο και πολύ σκληρό για εκείνη την περιοχή.Ιδανικό για σπυράκια βέβαια,αλλά αυτό δε με απασχόλησε ποτέ οπότε μου ήταν άχρηστο.
    Εν κατακλείδι ,για να μην πολυλογώ με τα δικά μου το ποστ σου ήταν άκρως ενημερωτικό.Παρόλο που είμαι πολύ ικανοποιημένη με το radiant σκέφτομαι να δοκιμάσω του korre το wild rose (αν και από το foundation της ίδιας σειράς δεν έχω μείνει καθόλου ευχαριστημένη)

  3. oh boy, i have only one... am i missing something ;-)

  4. Hi Natalie!I bought the Garnier Roll-on anti-dark circles the other day and I love it! It doesn't cover perfectly, but now that it's summer and there are days that you don't want to wear full makeup, it covers just enough to make your eyes look fresh and wide awake, without being cakey and heavy!

    The best concealer for me is the Pro Longwear one by MAC! It covers perfectly everything and stays put all day long! I love it! :)

  5. I think the korres one is horrible.I had it some time ago and it was settling into the lines and the staying power is 0.

    Essence 3 in 1 is good,but needs a lot of setting powder due to the rich formula.
    But the beige color is great for contouring :)

    Good luck with your exams my dear *Keeping Fingers and paws crossed*

  6. @SophiaPeaches: maybe it's the colour and mine is more a highlighter. Thanks for stopping by! :)

    @Δέσποινα: Αν έχεις βρει ένα να σε βολεύει μην αλλάζεις. Όντως είναι σκληρά και βαριά τα στικ για τα μάτια, πιο πολύ για σπυράκια κάνουν. Ευχαριστώ για το σχόλιό σου!

    @nail crazy: not at all hun! I'm just looking for the perfect one. Thanks!!

  7. @Christina: yep, I totally agree about the Garnier! Today I used it without makeup and it was fine to make me look awake. Pro Longwear, huh? I'll have to try it! Thanks!!

    @CookingChichillas: Yes, I agree! You use the beige for contouring? hmmm, good idea. I have only used powder to contour so far, I hope I can blend this one! lol! Thanks a lot hun!!

    @Demi: I want to try the YSL one too, I've read so many positive reviews! Thanks doll!

    @denise: Για σπυράκια είναι καλά αυτά που είναι σε βαζάκι, σε στικ κλπ γιατί καλύπτουν καλύτερα νομίζω. Ευχαριστώ για το σχόλιο, πολλά φιλιά!

    @fairy_ana: thank you doll! :D

  15. That's one huge concealer collection, I must say! My favourite used to be the H&M one, it worked really well for me, but since discovering BB creams I don't use concealer any more.

  16. @Cel: I'll try a BB cream soon, I've heard so many good things about them! Thanks for stopping by hun!

  17. Oh I'm definitely going to try out that essence stay all day concealer one xD Thanks for this post hun xx
