HIGH END CONCEALER DUPES



I own so many concealers and I go through them like nobodies business. I love my high end concealers but there are so many alternatives in the drugstore that are a fraction of the price and are almost as good if not as good as the high end concealers!



This is arguably my favourite concealer of all time. Benefit'a Erase Paste is a salmon toned pink colour which counteracts the darker colours we get around the eyes. This is perfect for getting rid of dark circles, leaving the appearance of having a brighter eye area. It is a thick, creamy consistency which camouflages discolouration perfectly! I find this concealer lasts a long time so in my opinion is well worth the money. This retails for £20.50. 


However, a dupe for this is found in the drugstore. Soap and Glory Kick Ass concealer comes in this compact little kit. It is perfect for travelling as it provides two concealers and a setting powder. This product is great for those starting out with concealer due to the fact that it is relatively inexpensive for what you get. It includes a salmon toned concealer and a yellow toned concealer. The yellow one is perfect for covering any blemishes on the skin and of course the salmon toned concealer is ideal for under the eyes. As you can see from the picture, the top layer has the setting powder which is perfect for setting under the eyes to ensure the concealer will last all day and will not crease or budge. This concealer retails for a mere £10.00! 





I cannot speak highly enough of the Nars Radient Creamy Concealer. This is perfect for illuminating and brightening under the eyes. It's consistency is very creamy (hence the name) so it does not crease under the eyes which is perfect. This concealer retails for £22.00.



                                 


                                

However, I do have two dupes from the drugstore. The first is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I think I am in love with this concealer. This is perfect for brightening and highlighting the under eye area. I love using this when I have events or parties as it's great to highlight with when contouring. The price is even better, this retails for only £7.99! 

The following picture is the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer. This is literally identical in colour and appearance to the Nars Creamy Concealer. The only difference is the consistency is a lot thinner and isn't quite as thick and rich. However for the price I think it is brilliant for those on a budget! Retailing at only £5.49 it's a steal! 




It wouldn't be review without mac. I'm sure you all guessed this would feature, it's the MAC Pro long wear concealer. I think everyone's grandma, mum, sister, cousin, friend and neighbour has tried this concealer! There's not much to say on this product minus the fact this provides unbelievable coverage and is perfect for under the eyes to counteract discolouration. It's very lightweight on the skin and provides a matte finish. My only criticism of this product is the pump, it always pumps out too much product. This retails for £17.



Some may think £17 is slightly pricey for a concealer so I thought I would provide a great alternative. This is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I think every beauty blogger has at least one of these in their collection (I have six (oops)). This is by no means going to provide you with the same quality as mac does, but this is literally as close as you will get. This is a thick concealer which provides a full coverage, flawless finish to the under eyes or blemishes. It is the best drugstore concealer in my opinion and it retails for only £4.19!!

I hope this was helpful for you all! Let me know what your favourite concealers are!

  1. WOW, thanks for sharing this! I agree that the Maybelline is a dupe for the NARS one, too! I am fascinated with the Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer... I don't think we have that in the US, or I probably have not come across of it yet. <3
