The £1 Concealer That Took Me By Surprise♥

Stick concealers definitely do not receive the hype they deserve. Rewind maybe 10 years ago and they were all that everyone used. For some odd, unknown reason, I stopped using stick concealers and had switched to concealers that had a doe foot applicator. However, recently I bought the MUA Hide & Conceal Stick to take on my holidays. Being only £1, I didn't expect too much, but in actual fact, I was blown away by it!


I went for the shade "Fair", simply because I'm pale but also for the illusion that under my eyes are brighter and that I look more awake. Turns out that it matches me pretty well and doesn't look too bad with a tan either I discovered. Considering I brought this concealer with me to a pretty warm climate, I was impressed that it never melted - I was expecting to take the lid off and the whole concealer had melted inside haah! For stick concealers, and any concealer in general, my preference to blend it is by using a damp beauty sponge, and boy does that work a treat with this little gem.


The formula of the concealer is uber creamy, it blends out effortlessly and flawlessly, concealing any imperfections without a hassle. A little goes a long way with regards to this concealer, meaning it will last a long period of time. I can't get over how good the coverage is for the price - it works amazingly on those dark under eye circles! I haven't tried it out on spots because I don't like to cover them with makeup but I still believe it'd work well! My only criticism with this concealer is that it does have the tendency to crease under the eyes so it's important that you set it with some powder to avoid this happening.

Honestly, I cannot recommend this concealer enough, especially for the price! It was one of those bought on a whim because I was needing a cheap stick concealer for holidays but turned out to be one of the best I've ever tried. Without a doubt, I would repurchase this again!

Have you tried this concealer?
