The Best concealer for Acne and Texture One Zit, Three Concealers

One Zit, Three Concealers: The Best Concealer for Acne and Texture

There are TONS of concealers on the market from drugstore to high-end.  It’s impossible to choose just based on claims alone, so let’s give them a test shall we? Here’s a not-so-hot picture of my face with no makeup.  Just look at that planet!

We look at the aisles and aisles of makeup in Ulta and Sephora and it can easily get overwhelming.  While we’re searching for the best concealer we may ask ourselves:

Which one can cover up acne?

Is this great at smoothing out texture?

Can it actually cover up redness and even out skin-tone without clinging to dry patches?

And which one can do it all?

Does the concealer that does it all, actually exist?  Let’s find out in this new concealer series: One Zit, Three Concealers!

The three concealers I’m testing out today are:

  • Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer
  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
  • SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer

The Best Concealer For Acne

The Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer (Ulta and Sephora $29) takes the cake for this one!  It has high coverage that completely eliminates redness and covers up that planet on the side of my face.  The concealer does not look cakey or emphasize dry patches so skin still looks like skin.  Sadly, that means the texture on my skin is not smoothed out.

Pro: great coverage, doesn’t emphasize dry patches

Con: doesn’t smooth out texture

The Best Concealer For Texture

The NARS Radiant creamy concealer (Ulta and Sephora $30) is seriously creamy, like your skin looks smooth like velvet.  The texture on my cheeks is less noticeable.  But the coverage is medium at best, so my planet is still visible and the redness is peaking through.

Pro: great for smoothing out texture, doesn’t cling to dry patches

Con: doesn’t cover up blemishes well (medium coverage)

The Most Affordable Concealer

The SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer has high coverage.  So, it covers up the planet nicely.  Plus, it does not cling to dry patches around my jaw line.  However, it does not smooth out the texture on my cheeks.

 

Pro: super affordable (Amazon $6), high coverage, doesn’t cling to dry patches

Con: not many shades (only 3), doesn’t smooth out texture

The Best Concealer Overall???

No concrete answer.  After looking at the photos, I’ll be using the Naked Skin or SAEM cover perfection for blemishes and the NARS concealer for texture.  The mixture of both will give me the perfect finish! But I have yet to find the perfect one…

Beauty Product Review: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

Just in case lack of sleep and a never-ending pile of homework stress me out, but my face also decides to grow a giant zit!  Just perfect.  The icing on the cake during exam week.  I have used so many drugstore concealers to hide these monsters on my face, but it always look dry and cakey.  Which emphasizes the huge thing on my face even more.  The opposite effect of what I was going for.

It wasn’t until I saw Zoella recommend NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer that I decided to give it a try.  And I have been in love with it ever since.

So, here’s the zit I got during exam week. It’s super red and inflamed.  Great.  Even harder to conceal.

After applying NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer…

 The concealer doesn’t look caked up or dry.  And takes away the redness of the zit, making it less inflamed.  I know putting makeup on zits is bad, but I really wanted to take this concealer for a test.  And it worked wonders.  Thank you, NARS for making such a great product!
