Girls (or guys!) I need recommendations for a good concealor. The foundation I use is mac but it doesn't offer enough coverage for dark circles etc as its powder based. Help!

foundation wise - maybelline dream matte mousse is good. it spreads pretty well, and when used with a bit of moisturiser its less obvious

I was gonna say that, but you got in before me! Its voted no1 make up product, i know myself that its pretty damn good! Dior also do one called skinflash which is similar to touche eclat which is equally as good.

Yeah I've tried that but as my skin reacts to foundation by overproducing oil I have to stick to powder based and mac is the only one which really works for me! Do you find your foundation growing way more obvious in the summer?

Personally i don't, but in the summer i guess you could always use a tinted moisturiser?

Yeah I was considering it but does it work on blemishes too? My friend said its just a light reflecting concealor and doesn't really *conceal* anything?

It is mainly just a light refelcting concealor. But i find that when i do actually have blemishes, concealor just makes them more noticeable. :eek:

I know, but then most people think i wear lots of make up, but i actually don't. I only wear foundation, blusher and mascara. Only takes me five minutes to slap it on in the morning! :eek:

I rarely uses concealor. I always think a good plastering in foundation is more effective!
Yeah I used to do that but the new one I got doesn't conceal well.

Well it seems like touche eclait is the best bet for dark circles but for blemishes has anyone heard of green concealor? Any idea where you get that?

Green can be bought from anywhere but it only really gets rid of redness

I use powder based foundation not concealor. In the winter I used a liquid foundation and so didn't need concealor for that and now that I've bought this one the hunt has begun The Spectular one sounds worth a try but it'll be hard to locate as i think my local market only fruit veg and chavvy clothing :confused: Btw if you have oily skin too try the foundation i got: its mac studio fix and it rocks. just google it and read all the great reviews on epinions.com!

i dono if spectacular is the best for non-black people, i use it cos its cheap and dark. for us blacks unless u wana pay £20 for a tiny concealer, its hard to get the colour normally. even rimmels new dark range has like 8 white shades then one really really black one.

but thanks for the advice about powder foundation, mayb i'll use that.

for white skins i have heard maybelline is good.i do recommend u have concealer tho. if you have fairly nice skin, it looks tonnes better to be lightly conceled spots than oads of foundation

I'm asian and I know what u mean abt most shades out there being too pasty even if they are supposed to be especially for asians/black. mac and bobbi brown are supposed to be the best for darker complexions but they are a little pricey. maybellines dream mousse has lots of dark shades instead of just one dark one as well.
