One product I consistently review is the concealer. A key product in anyone’s makeup arsenal; therefore, having a good one is of paramount importance. Now, with cruelty-free and vegan products in high demand, the selection is growing. This means no more do we need to settle for lesser quality or pay higher prices. I’ve tested many and the following are 5 of the best concealers around:
For EVERYTHING Concealer
1.Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Scultpting Concealer, £24, www.lookfantastic.com
Too Faced Super Coverage Concealer is my #1 product. This little gem ticks all the boxes: cruelty-free, vegan, free from parabens. Better yet, it is the lazy girl’s go-to product. The multi-tasker makes light work of its mission to conceal, contour, correct and highlight. Whatever your skin need, this liquid concealer delivers flawless results – AND IS NOT REMOTELY CAKEY!! Available in 16 shades, there is bound to be a shade to suit your skin tone. Too Faced, I love you!
For Discoloration and Longwear
2.Barry M All Night Long Concealer, £4.49, www.superdrug.com
Should your concern be predominantly discoloration and the need for long-lasting coverage, this is the perfect vegan concealer. Expect an even skin tone, soft-focus effect and a burst of luminosity. This concealer is so easy to blend, providing seamless results that stay put. For an added boost it combines moisturising and skin repairing vitamin E.
I would say a little of this concealer goes a long way. I found it best to just lightly apply to problematic areas rather than liberally splash on. The concealer certainly is long-lasting – I’m not sure about all night long, but it definitely stayed put until 3am!
This incredible vegan and cruelty-free liquid concealer is a game-changer for those with discoloration concerns.
For Dry Skin and Travel-Friendly
3.bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick (SPF25), £29, www.bareminerals.co.uk
Check out the first vegan water-based foundation stick. This product is composed of 30% enhanced mineral water, thus offering exceptional skin-loving support. For those with dry / dehydrated skin, this non-cakey stick will feel like a dream. Whether you wish to use this as a concealer, foundation or creamy contour, the vegan stick blends in seamlessly, providing truly flawless yet natural-looking results. Furthermore, this travel-friendly stick fits perfectly in your clutch, has an SPF25 and is available in an incredible 20 shades.
For Uneven Skin / Longwear
4.Smashbox Studio Skin Flawless, £20, www.lookfantastic.com
Should you have blemishes and uneven skin, Smashbox’s Studio Skin Flawless is awesomeness in a bottle. The lightweight vegan formula effortlessly conceals, evens the appearance of skin tone, contours and highlights. Dark circles and hyperpigmentation vanish before your very eyes – and unlike Cinderella’s midnight dilemma – this product will keep you looking radiant until at least 3 am (this is the time I collapsed at home). However, Smashbox state the product stays put for 24 hours and given the seamless results many hours later, I am inclined to agree! Better yet, it is oil free and available in an amazing 30 shades!
