I put 3 top rated drugstore concealers to the test. See which, if any, got my stamp of approval!
During my trip to Cancun back in February, I dropped and smashed my tried and true Tarte Shape Tape concealer. Tragic, I know, especially because I had just purchased said concealer and it ain’t cheap. As soon as I got home I contemplated purchasing a new tube but couldn’t justify spending another $27 on that damn thing, no matter how good I think the formula is.
Instead of shelling out the cash, I headed to my local Target (always saves the day!) and picked up 3 drugstore concealer options. I couldn’t commit to just one, in case it sucked, and figured three options was a good test group. Note, I’ve been trying these concealers for six weeks now, switching off every three or so days. In that time, I’ve gotten a good feel for what I like and/or dislike from each option. Read on for my findings!
Drugstore Concealer Review:
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – This used to be my go-to back in the day, so I figured I’d pick this up in case the other contenders didn’t perform well. This concealer is lightweight but packs a punch when it comes to coverage. I also love that it doesn’t cake up on the skin and has a flawless, natural finish.
NYX Professional Makeup
Maybelline Dream Brightening Creamy Concealer – I really wanted to like this product and I don’t really like giving a negative review on something, but it has to be said. While this is very creamy and smooth to apply, it blends away to nothing. I’d say I have medium range of dark circles, #momlife, and this doesn’t seem to cover any of it. All this seemed to do was accentuate the dark circles because of the sheerness of the formula. Personally, I would not recommend this product.
