2018 Makeup Inventory – Part 2: Concealers & Setting Sprays

What’s up and happy Monday!  Today is the next part in my series of my Makeup Inventory, part 1 I will link here for you.  Part 2 is all about my current concealers and setting sprays in my collection.  Now, for the setting spray category, I don’t feel I am overloaded with products, but with concealers, I do.  I use very little product on my face, so concealer takes me a while to use up.  Also, quick side note before we move on, I know there are inconsistencies with the graphics below, bare with me.  I’m getting used to using a picture editing program and getting into a grove where I like what I create.  So, yeah.  Anyway, if you are curious about my collection, then just keep on reading!

1. BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer$6 US

The BH Cosmetics concealer was a purchase off a recommendation from Taylor from ThaTaylaa on YouTube (link to ThaTaylaa Made Me Buy It).  This is a thicker formula and in my opinion extremely full coverage.  I feel this has the highest coverage out of all the concealers in my collection.  This product also has the most product and the most bang for your buck, $6 for 0.35oz.  Quick side note, they downsized this product, because my original concealer has 0.46oz of product.  Regardless, you need so little to cover your under eyes and it is not super heavy, although it is slightly drying.

2. Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme$26 US

I love Kat Von D products, but this one is not a favorite.  It is a really thick formula, feels heavy on my under eyes, and is really drying.  In the future to use this product up, I plan to use it as a mix in to lighten and mattify foundations.  I’m sure it’ll be great that way, but as a concealer, this is a definite pass.

3. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer$9.99 US
NOT CRUELTY-FREEAffiliate Link | Regular Link
Currently, this concealer is in my 13 By Halloween Project Pan because I do want to use it up and not waste product since.  I do enjoy this concealer, it is creamy, not drying on my under eyes, but will not be repurchasing in the future.  It’s also worked as a great all over dewy and hydrating foundation on me.  The only problem, due to the fact it is so creamy and hydrating, is that it does crease fairly easy on me.

4. Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer$27 US

I feel the Tarte Shape Tape is dying out, mostly because of new concealer launches.  However, this is still a really good concealer.  It is on the drying side, but not terrible.  This is also pretty full coverage and a little goes a very long way.  For a high-end concealer, you get a considerable amount of product, so you get a lot of bang for your buck I feel, $27 for 0.3381oz of product.  Most high-end concealers stick around the 0.15-0.22oz range I’ve noticed.

5. Wet N Wild Photofocus Concealer Wand$3.99 US
Affiliate Link | Regular Link
Out of all my concealers in my collection, I would say this is my favorite.  It has about a medium coverage, not super drying, nice and creamy formula, not too thick.  Love this formula.  I love that I can find it so easily at my grocery store or drugstore and doesn’t break the bank.  This one has 0.26oz of product, but a terrible shade range.  The shade I have is the lightest and it matches my skin tone.  They definitely need an expansion of lighter and deeper shades.

1. FLOWER Beauty Seal the Deal Hydrating Setting Spray$12.99 US

Now I have yet to try this setting spray, least I don’t remember trying it.  I picked it up because I wanted to try more things from FLOWER Beauty and this setting spray had 4 1/2 stars on the Ulta website.  The older I’ve gotten, the more I like natural and dewier finishes.  Even though this is on the pricier side of drugstore, you are getting 3.4 fl oz of product and better value than the Milani sprays (which I really love).

2. Kat Von D Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist$26 US

I love this setting spray/mist.  I will say, you need to make sure you press the top down all the way when spraying your face.  It has a wonderful mister and really does help my makeup last all day, through heat, humidity, dog hair, and water.  If you are not willing to spend money on a higher-end setting spray, I would go with the Milani Make It Last (I have it listed below).  It is also really good, this one just works a bit better for me so I’m willing to pay the higher price tag.

3. Milani Make It Dewy Setting Spray$9.99 US
Affiliate Link | Regular Link
If you do not like super dewy finishes, steer clear of this bad boy.  It is fucking POTENT.  You look super dewy after a few sprays, literally 3 sprays and you look super dewy, almost oily.  So if you don’t like that look, do not pick this up.  However, I love how this spray brings back my skin to life.  I feel so glowly and my skin looks so healthy.  I use this on my really heavy, drying, mattifying foundations and it turns them into a beautiful, radiant, skin-like finish.  Love, love, love this spray!

4. Milani Make It Last Setting Spray$9.99 US

This is a great drugstore setting spray just to help extend the wear of your makeup.  It does not mattify your skin, it literally locks everything into place.  I have already gone through one bottle of this and am almost finished with my second.  It is not as good in my opinion as the Kat Von D one, but it is still a really great drugstore option.  If you don’t have to deal with high heat, humidity, water, and dog hair on the daily like I do, this would work great for you!

 

Alright, so that does it for Part 2 of my Makeup Inventory.  Do we share any products?  If so, what do you think of them?  I feel like I’m going to be using my concealers for YEARS before I ever get through them, but setting sprays are so quick for me to use up!  What about you?  Feel the same way about concealers?  What are some of your favorite concealers and setting sprays, let me know in the comments!  Well, I think that does it for me.  Thank you so much for stopping by and until next time!
