Two well known brands have released new concealers. The concealers are very comparable in formula, so I wanted to give you guys my thoughts on both of them…
What is a concealer?
A concealer can be used in two ways: to cover up a blemish or highlight certain areas. Either way concealers are used to conceal. If you wanted to cover up a blemish on your face, you would choose a concealer close to your foundation shade. If you wanted to highlight your face, you would choose a concealer one or two shades lighter than your foundation.

Which do I prefer?
Honestly, I love both concealers once I learned how to work with them. If you have dry skin, like myself, you may not like these concealers. They are super thick, which can cause them to sink into the fine lines under the eyes. Also, they both dry super fast, which leaves you not much time to blend out. In order for me to make these work, I have to moisturize under my eyes really well and blend the concealers out with a damp beauty blender (sponge). Using a damp sponge, can help retain the moisture under my eyes and thin out the concealer. Once blended out, the concealers are beautiful, and make your under eyes look airbrushed. I recommend both concealers if you’re looking for something that will cover everything. Just keep in mind that they do dry fast so work in small sections!
