Beauty in Review: Top Three Holy Grail Concealers

No comments
Concealer is my favorite beauty product of all time. It has to do with the fact that I have hereditary dark circles and I'm a little self-conscious about them. I like a full coverage concealer that is easy to blend and one that I can layer if I need to.

I don't understand the appeal of a light coverage concealer, like the Glossier Stretch Concealer. I ordered it and hated it because it barely hid anything which I should've known because Glossier is all about the no makeup look.

Ever since then, I know not to purchase anything light coverage when it comes to concealer. It's funny because when it comes to my foundation, I'm not a full coverage kind of girl.

After a bit of a funk when it came to beauty products, I'm back in the game. I've been ordering so much from Sephora, looking out for all the new launches and really just feeling makeup again. That got me thinking on some new content for the blog and I decided that I wanted to share my top three favorite beauty products in each category. This week, we're clearly doing concealers!

These are concealers that have completely changed my world and concealers that I can't really see myself ever being without. I use them all in the rotation and they all cover my dark circles, don't cake my face, and don't dry out my under eyes. They are my holy grails!



Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

If you have ever read a beauty blog or watched a beauty vlogger, you know about this concealer. It flipped the beauty industry on its head. Everyone gave it rave reviews and I was so excited to pick it up. Well, it's been a few years and I'm on my fourth tube of it. Shape Tape is full coverage, creamy, smooth, and applies like a dream. It blends in really nicely with your fingers, a beauty blender, or brush; it leaves your under eyes with a nice, natural finish -- nothing too matte or too radiant. Shape Tape is like my security blanket; when I don't know what I want to do, I just apply Shape Tape and everything is better. There is a reason this is a best seller and a reason why no one can stop talking about it so many years after it's release, it is THAT GOOD. 

Laura Geller Spackle Concealer

This is the first doe foot applicator concealer from Laura Geller and it was well worth the wait. This is a concealer that is infused with primer ingredients so it primes and sets your skin. It is medium-full coverage but I think of it leaning more toward full. Once again, it's a concealer that isn't really a matte or radiant finish but completely natural. It just feels good on the skin, blends beautifully and is a great concealer. It's definitely not as heavy as Shape Tape but isn't incredibly lightweight so that makes it a great everyday concealer in my eyes. 

Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer

This concealer is unlike any other on the list because of a few things: it's not a liquid concealer but more of a cream consistency that comes in a twist up tube. Also, it is incredibly expensive, like $70 expensive. I bought it as a birthday present to myself last year and I will continue to purchase it until further notice. This is known in the beauty industry as the end all be all concealer; like, if you love concealer you need to get this. It is so full coverage but very lightweight and so easy to apply. I bring this concealer with me everywhere and it's perfect for touch-ups. I also really like this for blemishes because it blends out with just a few taps. When I don't feel like putting on foundation, this is what I wear because it's really all you need. If you are as obsessed with concealer as I am, save up for this one because you will not regret it.
