Concealers I Recommend For That Flawless Look
In one of my set of posts for makeup beginners, I had included a whole post for this flaw covering product called concealer. Yes,this is the product used to get flawless skin look. It covers skin problems like blemishes, spots,dark patches etc.
Everyone has bad skin day. These unwanted pimples can come anytime. Uhhh. So keeping these concealers handy would be a wise choice.
I do have couple of concealers with me. They are from my favorite brands – Lakme and Maybelline. Which I’m gonna quickly review now.
Lakme Absolute Color Intense Concealer:
There are 3 different shades available.
- Honey (05)
- Medium (03)
- Fair (01)
I chose the shade 01.
Best part it comes with SPF 20. So, hello summer. 😉
600 INR for 3.6 g. I bought it from Nykaa for 413 INR. Thanks to the sale with 25% off.
It comes in a bullet packing just like a lipstick. The grey and silver packing is kind of sober yet attractive. The transparent plastic cap is tight but not so sturdy. I had broken it ones. This is my second tube. So you don’t have to worry of any spillage but you should be cautious that you won’t break the cap.
The twist and apply technique is very handy. You don’t have to use any applicator as such.
The transparent cap also makes it easy to keep an eye on the product left. The shade number is printed at the bottom of the pack. Which helps in differentiating the shade.
It has a faint fragrance of candies. Smells yummy.
The product is creamy. The results or finish it gives is a matte finish. But it doesn’t dry the skin.
This is the main point for concealer. The coverage it provides is light to medium. I can’t say it totally hides the pimple marks, but it make them appear faint. But this is good enough to cover dark circles.
What I loved about Lakme Absolute Color Intense Concealer:
- It has SPF 20.
- Coverage is good.
- Travel friendly packing.
- Twist and apply parking is handy.
- Value for money. Little goes long way so the quantity of product for the price is good.
What I didn’t like:
- Shade availability is very less.
- Second concealer I absolutely love is the one from Maybelline.
Maybelline Newyork Fit Me Concealer:
4 shades are available.
- Light (10)
- Sand (20)
- Medium (25)
- Cafe (30)
I chose the shade Sand (20) for me.
525 INR For 6.8 ml. (Buy from here)
It comes in a tube packing like lipgloss. The transparent plastic tube is sturdy. The black cap is tight.
The shade number at the bottom of the tube and the transparent pack makes it easier to recognize the shade and the quantity of product left.
It has mild fragrance of some chemical. It’s so mild that it’s hardly noticed.
The dove feet applicator is soft and Veryyyy easy to use. This makes the application super easy.
It’s a liquid concealer. Not runny though. The finish it gives is dewy and soft finish.
This will last in my makeup bag for long now because of the coverage it gives…!!! This hides the flaws really well. I was super annoyed by the pimple scar I had last week. Trust me it was so dark that it was a good reason to get annoyed. Lakme concealer I tried made it look light. But it was still noticable. Uhh. But this concealer hid it so well. I loved it. So I can say the coverage is pretty great.
What I like about Maybelline Newyork Fit Me Concealer:
- Coverage is awesome.
- Travel friendly packing.
- Comes with a nice applicator.
- Doesn’t dry skin.
- Totally worth the money.
What I didn’t like about Maybelline Newyork Fit Me Concealer:
- Doesn’t has any SPF content like that of Lakme.
- Shade availability is less, especially for deeper skin tones.
Which one will I repurchase???
I would definitely go for Maybelline because of its coverage. SPF content is not my concern as I can apply some good sunscreen on it separately. Hehe.
Which one will I recommend???
My recommendation depends on your skin needs.
If your main concern is dark circles and you like products with sun protection contents, go for Lakme.
If you have different skin problems like pimple scars, dark patches, unevenness then go for Maybelline. This gives you a great coverage. You can add SPF product later. What’s say???
I hope these quick reviews will help you chose the concealer for you. If you want to know more about concealer do check this post of mine, where I have explained everything you need to know about it.
