Everyone wants perfect flawless skin, but the reality for some of us can be waking up every morning to acne, blemishes, redness, hyper pigmentation or the spot from hell. Our GlamGeek reviewers have put these concealers through their paces in their plight to cover those pesky pimples or the spooky ghost of spots past!

Splash Out – Benefit Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer


“If you have acne or spots, this product will hide them and is definitely high coverage. I would recommend this to someone has breakouts…”

Whilst a lot of reviewers were not overly keen on this as an under concealer they were singing its praises for covering acne, scars, spots and blemishes.  Due to its thick consistency and easy to build coverage, this heavy duty concealer hides all types of blemishes and will stay put all day.  Despite having a thick consistency Boi-ing is still very blendable, does not go cakey and is best applied to spots using a brush.  Our reviewers recommended this to anyone who has breakouts as not only will it hide your blemishes it also contains antibacterial properties which are essential for problem skin.

Affordable – Vichy Dermablend Corrector Stick

“Great product it covered my birth marks, it’s the only concealer that ever has and is great because it’s not cakey and keeps even the most red spots covered for the day.  Also is great for oily skin…”

Not only is the Vichy Dermablend stick recommended by dermatologists and makeup artists, it also comes highly recommended by our GlamGeek blemish sufferers too.  According to our reviewers this tiny wand of magic provides day lasting full coverage to acne, spots, blemishes, redness and even birth marks.  For a high coverage concealer it’s still only light and creamy in formula, is non-caking and doesn’t dry out and crack throughout the day.  It sits well under or over most foundations and comes in a variety of shades to suit your skin tone.  It’s not called the SOS cover stick for nothing!

Budget – Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

“I love this concealer and with having acne and acne scars I found that this covers it all perfectly, with minimal redness showing through, I spent ages searching for a affordable and good concealer and I finally found one”

You may not expect much from a £4 concealer but our reviewers might just change your mind when they claim it gives high end products a run for its money.  Our reviewers all agree that this is the best budget, drug store, concealer for covering spots, scars, blemishes, redness and even hyper pigmentation.  Its thick, highly pigmented constancy gives full, day long lasting coverage but it’s still weightless enough to blend easily and a small amount goes a long way.  Two things mentioned continuously are that the lightest shade is ideal for even the palest of skin tones and for the price and flawless coverage it gives, you really can’t go wrong.
