concealer comparison

I love reading others reviews for various beauty products, so I figured I would do one myself for a recent product switch I made. Especially in the winter when my skin is paler, I have a constant battle with under-eye dark circles. For the past two years I have always relied on Benefit Boi-ing (shade 2) to get the job done. Its full coverage and very creamy and worked very well. However, I wouldn't recommend it for any type of acne prone skin. I love a concealer that provides great under-eye coverage as well as coverage for various other spots. I found this one caused me to break out unless only used under my eyes.

Enter Make Up Forever Full Cover Concealer. I've been using this product for a couple weeks and am already loving it. It's a little more expensive, but you only need to use a tiny amount so I assume this tube will last for a long time. I was matched with the color (flesh) and it blends oh so well. Some love concealer brushes but in my opinion, at least with this product that it works better if I warm it up with my finger on my hand. Like I said earlier, a teeny bit goes a long way and I very lightly tap it under my eyes. I'm also loving that it works so well with my very sensitive skin. I can use it on other parts of my face and it doesn't cause me to break out.

This is my first time using any product from Make Up Forever, but I have a feeling I will be adding more to my collection. I'm a beauty product junkie (to put it lightly) and would love to hear other recommendations of items you love!

  1. You have great tastes when it comes to concealer, missy. MUFE has been my go-to for years to cover up redness in the corners of my nose, chin, etc. For under eye, I go back and forth between Boi-ing and Erase Paste and like both for different reasons. I've heard amazing thinks about Cle de Peau, but I'll need some more spare cash lying around before I take the plunge.
