| Drug Store Concealer VS High End Concealer |
Decided to write a beauty post today. One of my favorite makeup products has to be a good concealer. So I have really bad under eye bags so I like to find a full coverage concealer that hides them pretty well.
I have nailed it down to two of the best ( in my opinion ) concealers that suit me perfectly. These are the Collection 2000 concealer which is my drug store fav, & the high end concealer which is MAC pro longwear concealer.
I have amazing things to say about both of the concealers. If your after a full coverage concealer then these two are just that, they are both pretty full coverage & can hide your under eye circles really well. Here I have two photos of what they both look like on.
This is without wearing any concealer. You have probably seen this photo before on one of my other blog posts, but saves me taking more photos when I already have one I can use.
Love how fluffy my eyelashes look without any mascara ha. As you can see my under eye circles are quiet dark. I don't think it helps that I'm so pale either.
This next photo is me wearing the pro longwear concealer by MAC. This is my holy grail concealer. I will never look at another concealer again, it hides my circles amazingly. It glides on well. It doesn't feel heavy under the eye. & it doesn't crease. Lasts all day especially if you use a powder to set it after. It comes in a variety of different shades. I was going to tell you the shade I wear but unfortunately it doesn't say on the bottle. Little bit gutted right now as when I go purchase a new one I don't know what the shade is AHHH!
Anyway the bottle it comes in is really nice looks really professional. Its a glass bottle & has a pump. Love a pump with bottled products just makes it easier to get the product out. The concealer lasts such a long time I have had this bottle ages. A little does go a long way. I always wear this if im going on a night out or just going out somewhere for the day. Its magic in a bottle. Price £17.00 worth every penny!
Pro Longwear MAC.
Now on the the Collection 2000 concealer. Love this product too, for a drug store beauty item it works wonders. I usually use this concealer when I am just nipping down to the shops or when im going to work. When I don't want to put a full face of makeup on I will usually use this just to cover up any of my redness & my circles. I work 13 hour shifts & believe me they are very tiring. This little beauty does stay on pretty much all day. It says on the bottle up to 16 hour wear. It does last a while mostly all day.
It has a thick & creamy consistency. Its easy to put on & work with I usually just use my finger to apply it. I'm in the shade fair 1 which I believe is the lightest shade & it suits me perfectly. Like the MAC concealer it doesn't feel heavy or look cakey. It covers up well. If you are looking for a full coverage concealer that has a nice price to it it is definitely this one at only £4.19 ( at boots)
For me it may not cover up as much as the MAC concealer but it still covers up enough if you just want to try hide most of the darkness under your eyes. Very good product! ( My under eye circles are quite bad )

Mac - Collection
Both products definitely worth a try. If your on a budget but still want a great concealer definitely try the Collection 2000. Or if your a lover of MAC products this one is one to go for.
See you soon Sammii Ox
