17 Hide Away Concealer Review ♥

I can't live without concealer. I think everybody needs a bit of concealer- it covers my horrendous eye bags and makes me look a little more awake! I'm yet to find a better concealer than L'oreal's Lumi Magique concealer (better than YSL), but in terms of a great budget buy concealer, then 17's Hide Away Concealer is pretty impressive. Unlike L'oreal's that is dispensed through a tube, 17's comes in your typical concealer crayon. I always think this makes it easy to blend, and Hide and Away is lovely and soft and blends and settles into the skin really well.
 The concealer is available in four shades, but it's always best to select your concealer in a lighter shade, so I've been using Fair. The shade matches my skin tone really well, and blends beautifully with my foundation. It's quite thick, which makes it great for covering blemishes or dark circles- I wouldn't recommend this product if you want a light concealer to also use on your brow bones and cheek bones. It is definitely a perfect product for covering any nasty spots, so it's definitely a staple product for the beauty bag.
 It's quite oily, but I think this makes the product easy to blend and look even on the skin. At £3.89 at all Boots stores, I am so impressed. It lasts for most of the day, and I find that I only need to reapply after a long day at work- I do wear a primer to seal my make up however.

This is such a fantastic product. It is definitely my must go to product whenever I have terrible blemishes.
Have you tried this concealer? Do you have a favourite?
