Review: Barbara Daly Concealer
I enjoy a good concealer. I feel bad moaning about the absolute hack of my skin when loads of you have actually been complimenting me on it, but I swear, it is crap (more on that soon!). So, as a pock-faced individual, a decent concealer in an essential weapon in my beauty arsenal. I've reviewed the super-popular Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer before, and MAC Studio Finish is another firm favourite of mine.
Because I go through them so quickly, I can't really justify buying super-expensive concealers. MAC Studio Finish is the exeption to the rule as I've had it for about ten months and it's still going strong. It is a great concealer, but a little too stiff for my liking, so I had been on the look-out for something a lot more malleable and creamy. Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer is still on my wish list, but when I heard good things about this super-cheap alternative, I had to give it a go first.
This concealer is super-creamy and emollient, the shade (Fair) is perfect for me, and it covers pretty much everything - blemishes, redness, scarring, large pores, etc. Suffice to say I love it, and it's now a staple item. At about €6, I can afford to use it daily and replace it regularly - yay!
This concealer comes in a pretty good variety of shades, but the problem is that Barbara Daly stands in Tesco (much like Sleek in the UK - another bugbear of ours) always seem to be really poorly stocked. If you see your colour, I'd advise you to grab it, and it won't set you back a whole lot. I'll be grabbing more than one next time they have my shade in!
