The Concealer Battle: Part One

concealer battle part one

It’s time to get this concealer battle underway! In order to clear through the backlog of redness busting & dark circle hiding concealers, I’ve selected a pair a day of concealers to try each day. One for my face and a second one for under my eyes, because let’s be real, I need all the help I can get for me to look awake in the mornings! Time to get the heavyweights lined up – let the battle commence!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Light Neutral

First up to bat is this classic concealer, loved by many all over the world it became a fast favourite the moment it hit the beauty world. Targeted as a buildable concealer that gives you coverage whilst looking luminous on the skin, the lightweight formula doesn’t cling to any dry patches yet glides over blemishes to mask those imperfections. When I first picked up this concealer I instantly wasn’t a fan, I was wrapped up in the¬†Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer hype and wasn’t used to a more hydrating formula. Needless to say times (and my skin!) changed and a quickly moved on from the thicker Nars formula.

Since the initial hype, new concealers have bounced onto the scene and I haven’t been as loyal to my UD concealer as I once was. Revisiting I found the formula thicker then I was expecting & now slightly drying. As my skin changes, especially during these cold winter months, I need a concealer that doesn’t cling to the dryer areas on my skin. Although me & the Naked Skin concealer were once best of friends it’s now fair to say I’ve moved on.

Verdict – use up, bin – won’t repurchase!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Colour Correcting Fluid in Pink

Not only do you get 14 shades in the UD concealer, they also launched a range of 6 correcting fluids aimed to blur flaws whilst colour correcting imperfections to leave skin looking radiant. As I’ve always had an issue with the dark circles under my eyes I instantly nabbed the shade¬†pink to test it out against those dark blue tones. I loved it’s ability to counteract and balance out the unwanted darkness and how it did so by leaving a subtle brightness to my complexion. I went through an entire bottle and instantly repurchased, the love was real but just like with the UD concealer, the change in weather and my skin meant that the slightly thicker formula stopped working as well.

Verdict – use up, bin – won’t repurchase!
