Makeup Collection: Primers & Concealers!

Friday, March 29, 2013
Firstly, sorry I haven't been posting really, I have been so busy with my dissertation and friends coming over! Anyway here is the second part of my makeup collection (ft Muji acrylic storage drawers). This part of my makeup collection contains my eye and face primers and my concealers (of which I have a fair few)....
Firstly, concealer - I have quite a few concealers (that's a bit of an understatement...). I have quite a few as I am on the quest to find the best concealer for my very dark circles but it has to be very pale like me and it has to be moisturising. I haven't found my perfect concealer yet but here are some of my favourites! I have concealers from Kiko, Revlon, Lierac, Vichy, Loreal, Smashbox and more.

I love the ELF Tone Correcting Concealer (shade: Ivory) as it is super moisturising and it never looks caky or dry, although it only has light coverage. I also really like the MAC Moisturecover Concealer (shade: NW15) as it is similar to the ELF concealer but it has a lot more coverage - however on my dry skin days this concealer can look a bit caky and obvious. My favourite under eye concealer right now has to be the Clinique Airbrush Concealer (shade: 04 neutral fair). I received two travel size ones (gifts with purchase) and I LOVE them! My least favourite concealers have to be the Revlon Photoready and the Kiko Skin Evolution as they are just too drying and caky on my already dry skin. I now also have the Benefit Fake Up Concealer (which I won!) which I will review fully soon!

Now onto primers! These are a mix of face and eyelid primers from Laura Mericer, Too Faced, Elf, Jemma Kidd, Smashbox, Nars, Benefit, Body Shop and Murad. My favourite face primer has to be The Body Shop Moisturise it Primer, it is great for keeping my makeup lasting throughout the day and for keeping my skin looking fresh - LOVE it! I also really like the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (I think I am going to buy the radiance version from SpaceNK soon). My least Favourite primers include: the Too Faced Shadow Insurance which doesn't work for me and the ELF eyeshadow primers are not great, in my opinion. I also have a full size Smashbox primer (that I have hardly used) which is ok. My favoruite eyeshadow primer has to be the Nars Pro-Primer Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Primer - it is the best eyeshadow primer I have tried (and everything creases on my eyes)!


I am thinking of creating a blog sale soon, comment if you are interested! (UK only).

  1. Omg you have loads, I love beauty items but my makeup consists of one small basket as I have a OCD about having too much of one thing I like very minimum things, which means I waste so much as I give a lot of things away as I don't like having too much lol weird I know x

  4. I've heard lots of good things about the Nars primer! It's just too bad that I have a ton of Urban Decay primers to get through before I buy a new one :P

  8. Have you tried some Asian brands? They're really good for pale skin (I'm not pale but I know this from friends, lol). The Skinfood salmon concealer is really great for dark eye circles :) x
