Do we actually use the words “Drug Store” in Ireland, or did we just acquire them from watching a lot of YouTube?
Chemist, Pharmacy, Grocery, Supermarket, place of joy…whatever you call the place where you stock up on your latest beauty buys, you can’t deny that there are some seriously great products on offer for a fraction of the cost of high-end beauty products. And a lot of the time they are just as good or better.
Here are some of our favourite budget drugstore concealers…
The Budget Drug Store Concealers
Also known as Zoella’s favourite concealer, not to mention a whole host of other beauty gurus who rave about this lil’ product. This is probably one of the most hyped budget drugstore concealers out there. We love it because it’s so blendable, but it still provides great coverages. The only downside is that the colours in the range are still very limited. 100% buy this if you haven’t already tried it.
Great For: covering spots
A firm favourite here at missy.ie, the Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer is a great dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. We really love the doe-foot applicator, although we sometimes feel that it applies a bit too much product – so watch that. In terms of how long it lasts and coverage, it really can’t be beaten. There are also over 20 shades available.
Great For: full coverage, especially under the eyes
Don’t be put off by the “Anti-age” label, a good concealer is a good concealer no matter who the advertising department are trying to target. Again, this is another highly rated product by beauty gurus. This gives a nice medium coverage and is particularly good for under the eyes.
Good For: on the go application
If you suffer from permeant dark circles under your eyes, you might need to invest in a colour corrector. We recommend applying it before your foundation. Once you’ve applied your foundation over it, follow-up with a light layer of a concealer that matches your skin tone.
Great For: those you are naturally dark under their eyes
This is a name that’s only recently been on our radar, but we are seriously impressed with L.A Girl Cosmetics. There’s are a number of colours in the range and there are also correctors to go with the concealers. Theres also an applicator brush, which is v handy!
Great For: lasting all day
