Becca compact concealer review

I have searched high and low for the perfect concealer to hide my bags. I've tried Touche Eclat and to be honest, found that it did absolutely nada for me. I used Mac's Select Cover Up for a while but found it to be really drying - and it sank into the fine lines under my eyes which accentuated them.

So imagine my relief when I came across Becca's gorgeous little compact concealer (£30), which comes in an enormous range of 34 colours, so you can be sure you'll find your match. The MUA's working at Becca really know their stuff too, and will match you correctly. 

The concealer is split into two, each side a different thickness and texture. The right hand side is 'medium' cover, which is perfect for my under eye area. I use my MAC 242 brush to apply it, which seems to distribute the perfect amount. It has a really light creamy texture, which means I don't have to drag the brush across my skin (and cause more wrinkles in the long term!). 

The left hand side is 'extra' cover, which is great for blemishes. I usually brush some onto blemishes and then finish with a powder to set it. It has a slightly more opaque finish than the medium cover, and feels slightly heavier; but perfect for its use. 

For reference, I have this in 'Latte' which is a perfect match for my NW25 complexion. 

Much love,
