A Brightening Concealer That Won't Break The Bank?♥*

Finding a brightening and highlighting concealer that works yet won't break the bank is tricky. You can either find one at a budget price that does nothing or pay out a fortune for one that isn't all the price tag seems to be. YSL Touche Γ‰clat is raved about for being a brightening concealer yet is slightly on the pricey side. Ever heard of the Seventeen Skin Wow Concealer*? It's a game changer.

Often compared to the YSL concealer, but it's a fraction of the price. With similar gold packaging and claims to do the same job, I can see the similarities. Although I haven't tried the YSL one itself, I could imagine this being pretty similar nonetheless. Many don't like the packaging of the Seventeen one, but it doesn't bother me in the slightest - I think it looks more expensive than it actually is. How do I get the product out Jasmine? Easy. Just push the bottom of the pen and it will come out.

I found that the consistency is quite thin, which I have no objections to as it blends out like a dream. With it being so thin, I did worry it wouldn't give much coverage. Thankfully, I was wrong, and you can see the "brightening" effect. I use it under my eyes to highlight and conceal, as well as the tops of my cheekbones before my powder highlight. The only thing I found is that it has the tendency to crease under my eyes if not set, but set it with some powder and you're good to go.

For the price of £4.99, it's a fraction of the YSL one (£25). Although I cannot compare it to be a dupe due to not owning it, I still do recommend the Seventeen one to start with as it is a lovely day to day concealer.

Have you tried either of these concealers? Would you compare them to be dupes?
