I'm blessed with permanent dark circles. I could sleep for a good 10 hours and still wake up looking like I've had two. Finding the right concealer that looks natural, doesn't crease and that has coverage can be a real mission. I've pretty much tried every drugstore concealer with little luck. That being said there are a few that I do like. But today I wanted to share with you my ultimate top 5...
Seventeen Skin Wow Concealer | £4.99 | POST
I'll start off with the cheapest of the bunch from Seventeen. Don't let its tiny price tag fool you though, this easily rivals some highend offerings. It's a light reflecting concealer in a pen style, colicky top tube. It has a good medium but build-able coverage, in a creamy, lightweight blend-able formula. This is brightening! It's amazing. It sits beautifully under the eyes without creases, cracking or going caky. It's really quite amazing for the prize! The only downside is it only comes in two shades; Light and Medium. Which are practically the same shade except 'Light' is more Yellow toned and Medium is more Pink toned.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye | £23.64 (with a brush)
This concealer has to be the most full coverage concealer I've ever come across! This really is full coverage. The consistency of this is very thick and it does require a lot of blending. I like to use my Beauty Blender, I find this is the best way to get it to look natural. Also because it is so thick setting it is a must; I like to use the RCMA No Colour Powder. I've heard some people say they don't like this and I see why, but for me this is easily the best concealer I've find that covers my dark circles. It's just a case of blending it well.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer | £19 | POST
An old favourite from Urban Decay. I've lost count of the times I have repurchased this. It's light weight, creamy consistency makes it perfect for under the eyes. It blends out with ease and looks so natural on the skin. The coverage is on the lower side of medium compared to the others in the post but it's great for everyday wear. This doesn't crease, crack or look cakey. This also works really well on blemishes so it's a great all rounder!
Kat Von D Lock Concealer | £20 | POST
This concealer is the 2nd most full coverage concealer here! This really is full coverage and banishess my dark circles with ease. The formula is light weight and easy to blend, although it's not as easy as the Urban Decay one but it's nothing to put me off. I like to use a brush with this but for a really natural look I'd use the Beauty Blender. I do also find that without setting this it can crease a little but with powder it's absolutely fine!
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer | £22.50 | POST
And finally, my absolute favourite of the bunch, my trusty NARS Concealer. This is just the most perfect under eye concealer. It looks natural, it's creamy, brightening, has good coverage, doesn't crease and lasts all day. This just ticks all the boxes for me! If you have dark circles I really can't recommend this enough.
