Drugstore concealers, what I've tried

All drugstore concealers that I have tried. My main concern is to conceal my under eyes, due to my bad dark circles :(

Maybelline Pure Concealer Mineral, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind, Wet n Wild Photofocus Concealer




What I want in a concealer?
1. Able to conceal my dark circles
2. Easy to blend, easy to apply
3. Minimal creasing - Yes I know, susah nak cari concealer yang tak crease untuk under eyes, (tak crease - tak berkedut kedut ikut lines kat bawah mata tu)
4. Not drying

The swatches


So today, I am going to compare some drugstore concealer that I've tried, what I love about it, what I don't like about it.

Maybelline Pure Concealer Mineral

This is one of the first concealer that I've tried and loved. There are only two shades available. I bought the lightest shade. Easy to blend, enough to cover my dark circles. Tapi rasanya yang ni tak jual dah sebab dah tak nampak.

I don't have the full review but you can read it here: MY BASIC DRUGSTORE MAKEUP ESSENTIALS FOR BEGINNERS

Price: RM 18.90 for 5.5mL (RM3.44/mL)


Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

I love this, easy to blend, good coverage, minimal creasing. Tapi the shade macam a bit orange-ish for me. Not brightening enough, sebab I suka dia brightening, nampak la berseri sikit. Tak nampak penat sangat mata tu.


Price: RM27.90 for 6.8 mL (RM4.1/mL)

Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer

Gosh, I hate the smell. I don't know why. Dia wangi but I don't like it. Depends on hidung masing masing la. Ada yang suka. But not for me. Try la bau dulu.

But the performance is great. Coverage is good, easy to blend, minimal creasing, brightening effect and cheap. Cuma kalau I pakai, kena tahan nafas sikit :(


Price: RM19.90 for 5 mL (RM3.98/mL)

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind

I love this at first, then I hate it. Sebab dah rosak hahaha. Packaging dia OMG I tak suka. Again, this one depends on people. Certain people memang suka gilaaaaaa this concealer. I menyampah sebab penutup dia kecik gila and senang gila, sponge dia cepat rosak and susah nak apply. Performance, great. Coverage ok, shade ok, minimal creasing, I suka formula dia.

Tapi packaging dia, hmmmmm.


Price: RM34.60 for 6 mL (RM5.77/mL)

Wet n Wild Photofocus Concealer

Good coverage, shade that matches my skin tone and brightening, easy to blend, not drying. Tapi, cepat crease. Pakai kejap je ok. Kalau lama lama, kemain tau crease dia.


Price: RM24.90 for 8.5mL (RM2.93/mL)


Summary:

Performance-wise: I suka Maybelline Instant Age Rewind, Maybelline Pure Mineral, Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer

Packaging-wise: All, except Maybelline Instant Age Rewind

Price-wise: Wet n Wild Photofocus is the cheapest (RM2.93/mL) and yang paling mahal is Maybelline Instant Age Rewind  (RM5.77/mL) kalau compared to price and quantity.

Overall: I'll go for Wet n Wild Photofocus despite dia cepat crease kalau nak keluar kejap kejap je. I'll go for Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer tapi kena tahan nafas bila pakai. I pakai Maybelline Fit Me Concealer kalau setakat light no-makeup makeup je. Yang paling perfect? Tak ada lagi haha.


Hope this helps! Thanks for reading.
