New series alert! I have decided to start keeping track of cruelty free makeup I absolutely love, because sometimes I forget the things I have tried or even owned. I want to make a comprehensive list of particular products I have used and liked (in this case: concealers), as well as how much they cost, and why I liked them. I also think this is a great and simple way for people to look at a list of great cruelty free concealers they know they will be able to trust! The shades I list in particular will be perfect for very fair skinned people like myself. For now it will be a very short list, but every time it is updated I will let you guys know through my social media pages. I will also keep a ‘last updated’ tracker at the end of the post!

Anything in this category will be under £10!
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer; £4.19; Fair 1
If you’re running out of your current concealer and also running low on money, this is the concealer I would recommend to you. It’s dirt cheap but so reliable; it will do everything you need it to do! It is easy to apply with its doe foot applicator. It’s creamy and blendable, and covers dark circles, redness, and small spots. It’s not a miracle worker though, and I find it doesn’t cover a mole and a couple of freckles that I have on my face, but for the price I feel that you really can’t go wrong. Truthfully, the shade selection is pretty terrible. With only four colours to choose from and hundreds of different skin tones out there, it may be difficult for you to find your perfect match. On me, Fair 1 can oxidise and look slightly orange on me, so I can never wear it alone, though if I do a full makeup look and put foundation over the top of my concealer, it’s not at all noticeable. The main reason I love this concealer is because it will always available to you in times of financial crisis!

Anything in this category will be in the range between £11 and £20!
Urban Decay Naked Concealer; £17.50; Fair Neutral
I bought this concealer in the summer of 2016 and didn’t use anything else to conceal literally until it ran out! I use the shade Fair Neutral which on me is an absolutely perfect match. It has a very similar formula to the Collection concealer, except I find the Naked concealer to be much more hydrating, and blends out further than the Collection concealer seems to go. Even though the Collection concealer has a thicker consistency, the Urban Decay concealer is much better at hiding the harder-to-conceal parts of my face. Though admittedly, again, it is not a miracle worker! There’s only a couple of reasons why I haven’t yet repurchased this concealer, and that is because 1. I have been trying to be less frivolous with my money (especially with makeup) and 2. I’m desperate to try more cruelty free products that are out there! I would recommend this concealer to anyone. I don’t feel that the price is too high, though it is on the higher side. If you’re not used to spending that amount of money on makeup, I would still suggest buying this concealer as a treat for yourself!

Anything in this category will be £21 or more!
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer; £23; Light 1 / Chantilly
Another perfect match for my pale skin, the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer. You will have probably heard of this product before as it is a cult favourite in the beauty community, and it has been around for years! I first tried this product in 2015 (I believe), and I adored it. Without even mentioning the product quality, the packaging is so sleek and it makes you feel extra bougie when topping up your makeup in public – and it’s so easy to top up when you’re out and about with this concealer. It also has a doe foot applicator, like most concealers seem to do these days, and you can easily pat/blend it out with a concealer brush or even your fingers. There is an excellent shade range, and I’m sure anyone could find something that would suit them out of this collection. I always feel if the palest skin can find a good match of concealer, the darkest skin can find their perfect match too. Admittedly, I haven’t used this concealer in a while because I ran out in summer 2016. Although I haven’t yet repurchased it, I definitely plan to in the future (maybe when I’ve tired a few other concealers and I’m getting paid more!).
