My Concealer Collection

Rimmel Wake Me Up Anti-Fatigue Effect & Radiant Glow (True Ivory)

Price: £5.49
Application: Doe foot applicator.
Colour: Range is poor. Most are too orange toned.
Coverage: Medium.
Formula: Smooth. Not too thick.
Longevity: Good.
Blending: Stubborn if using too much product.
What I love: Brightening. Counteracts redness.

Rating: 6/10

Maybelline The Eraser Eye Instant Anti-Age Perfect & Cover (Light)

Price: £7.99
Application: Rounded sponge.
Colour: Minimal range. Matches nicely to various skin tones. Lovely glow.

What I love: I can get away with wearing only this on a good day! Doesn't settle into lines or creases. Counteracts redness impressively well. Covers acne successfully.
What I hate: Sponge can be too big and messy. Odd smell (maybe it's just me).
Best used for: Under eyes but I use it all over.
Rating: 7/10

Mac Pro Long Wear Concealer (NW20) (I have also purchased NC25 since first writing this post which better matches my skin tone)

Colour: Impressive and inclusive colour range as always with Mac.
Coverage: Full.
Formula: Thinned foundation like consistency.
Longevity: Amazing.
Blending: Easy if using a correct colour.
What I love: Versatile. Covers blemishes wonderfully.
What I hate: Just a tad 
expensive. Pump gives too much product. Feels quite smothering on the skin. Overuse gives me breakouts.

Rating: 8.5/10
