Beauty Battle: Battle of the Concealers


If you're like me, you can't live without a concealer. Now I've spent a lot of money trying to find the best concealer to discover that actually the more affordable brands actually offer the best concealers. 
So here is the second battle of the beauty products (See the first battle here)
It's the battle of the concealers!
MUA's Cover & Conceal versus Collection's Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer
Let the battle begin!

Collection concealer
Pros:
  • Affordable (Usually £4.99)
  • Easy to apply with the doe foot applicator
  • Extremely good coverage
  • Easy to blend
  • Stays for a good amount of wear (Claims 16 hours)
  • Product lasts a long time (Get a lot of usage)
  • Great shade range for those with pale skin
Cons:

  • Can sometimes be drying
  • No shades for darker skin colours
  • The packaging is annoying as the writing rubs off
  • Can occasionally settle into fine lines

MUA Concealer
Pros:
  • Incredibly affordable at a wallet-friendly £1.50!
  • Not drying at all
  • Good wear
  • Nice consistency
  • Blends even easier than the Collection one

Cons:
  • Not many shades available (Even less than the Collection one)
  • Not as good a coverage
  • Can settle into fine lines
  • Packaging looks a little too cheap

The Final Verdict:
I think it's safe to say that both concealers have their pros and cons and overall they are both great beauty products. However for me, the Collection concealer has won this battle! The main aim of a concealer for me is to conceal! For me, the Collection one conceals better on my dark undereye circles however, the MUA one is brilliant for spots!

What's your verdict?
Let me know!
Give them a go
