I love the Mac one in the small round pot. It's one of the thickest on the market though so that might not be what you're looking for. I had some dark pigmentation so needed something thick and apparently this is what makeup artists use to cover up tattoos.

I have tried sooo many concealers over the year. I have very pale skin (often the lightest shade a brand will make) hut have a couple freckles / age spots on my face and some darker areas under my eyes.

This Sleek concealer is literally the best concealer I've ever tried. I tested over 30 one day at boots and it was by far the best. Previously I've used MAC, Clinique, Benefit, YSL, L'Oréal, and more. But now I just use this brand. It's amazing - and on offer at Boots right now! Only £5 which is a total bargain. So if you don't like it, you're not out of pocket by much.

Maybelline fit me concealer.
Such good value, and doesn't cake on dry patches.
Quite emollient, but not too oily or heavy.
I'm 48 and don't like a heavy concealer under my eyes at all - it just doesn't look good.
I put a light foundation first, then a couple of tiny dabs with the concealer is all that's needed. I then sweep the lightest swash of powder over to set.
No cakiness, no bunching, no dry patches at all. I would rather see dark circles peeking through later on in the day than obvious concealer.

I also like no7 hydraluminous concealer for the same reasons.

I like the maybelline one with the foam applicator on top. Sorry I can't think of the name off the top of the head but it's nice coverage without sitting in fine lines. Good shade selection too

Thanks everyone, do boots/Superdrug’s still have testers out to look at the different shades? I’m guessing they don’t 🤔

No testers in Boots but keep your receipt and if you dont like it you can return make up and get an exchange or refund.

Isn't it just Kezza ,I really can't fault it - and I've tried a few.
Dry, cakey undereyes or even worse, dry flaky blemishes with obvious concealer are not cutting it anymore!

Maybelline Age Rewind as a PP mentioned earlier is good too, although the coverage is a tad lighter. I also prefer the smaller doe foot of the fit me concealer, makes for a more precise application.

I use MAC Select Moisturecover for blemishes and MAC Studio Fix for under eyes.

The Moisturecover is easier to blend but the Studio Fix has more pigment and stays put longer.

Both have a doe foot applicator which I use along with fingers.

MAC is great because they have a huge colour range and colour matching is so important for concealer. I have one colour for winter/lighter areas and another for summer/more tanned areas.

The Revolution concealers are great, they have one for dry skin and another for oily. I've switched between concealers in the past and always come back to this one. I also use the Maybelline Fit Me one to highlight.

Revolution from Superdrug. Loads of shades and only £3, and one lasts for absolutely ages.

I like the Maybelline with the sponge thing too. Maybelline Erase I think it's called
