BEAUTY BATTLE: WAY TOO MANY CONCEALERS

CONCEALER COMPARISON

I don't sleep much so concealer is something I use everyday.  So I decided to compare all the concealers out there that I've heard good things about :).  I have dark circles and dry skin.  I never touch up or look in the mirror to check how I look during work.  I don't really have wrinkles but I do have extremely fine lines that is only noticeable up close.  So this is what I look for in a concealer.  1. last all day, 2. brightening effect, 3. creamy and does not crease, 4. blend ability for application sanity sake.  Here are my results

concealer comparison cre du beau beaute, chanel correcteur perfection, and lauren mercier
bobbi brown creamy concealer
bobbi brown corrector, ysl anti-cerns and touche eclat, nars radient creamy concealer
maybelline fit concealer


So here are my concealer picks listed in order of preference
YSL Anti Cernes 0.07oz + Touche eclat 0.1oz  $37 + $41 (2 Nude Beige + Luminous Vanilla)
NARS Radient Creamy Concealer 0.22oz $29 (Custard)
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer 0.23oz $4.19 (20Sand Sable)
Chanel Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer 0.26 oz $40 (20 beige ivoire)
Cre du peau beaute concealer 0.17oz $70 (beige)
Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit 0.05oz, 0.06oz powder $34, now $30.60 @ Nordstrom, (Beige, pale yellow
Bobbi Brown corrector 0.05oz, $24, now $21.60 @ Nordstrom, (light peach)
Lauren Mercier high coverage concealer under eye 0.27oz $28 (2.5 medium skin w/beige undertone)


I was debating between YSL, NARS, and Maybelline.  The price for YSL is a bit much for the amount you get so I'm going to try out Maybelline Fit Me concealer during residency and see how I like it.  Shall I develop wrinkles in the near future, I will likely switch to NARS.  For now, I prefer more radiance for a fake awake look.  And I suppose if I had more disposable money, I just might splurge and get the YSL haha.  Until then, I'm pretty happy with Maybelline Fit Me Concealer.  :)  Yes, I am clearly one of those people that does a lot of research before I make a final purchase.  Anyhow, if you are looking for a concealer or is not happy with yours, I wish you luck in finding a concealer you love!
