For me, a decent concealer is a make-up bag must-have. I simply won’t leave the house, or join Zoom conference calls, without wearing it.

I have trialled a fair few concealers in my time – from liquid options, to thicker cream formulas and powders, – to try to cover up any breakouts or signs of late nights evident in my dark purple under eye bags.

Some may cover up a breakout or disguise my eye bags when first applied, but often they are not long wearing, while others appear dry or ‘cakey’ and clog up any creases.

But there is one concealer that has changed the beauty game in my opinion - Catrice Cosmetics Camouflage Cream Concealer.

Why we rate it

Catrice Cosmetics Camouflage Cream Concealer is lightweight and pigmented enough to provide coverage all day long.

While the pot may look small, a tiny dab on the finger can go a long way, as other customers have also noted. Plus, its size means it is compact enough to carry with you when on the go.

I love that it provides enough coverage to conceal my dark circles and even the worst breakouts, without looking caked on or feeling like it has clogged my pores, like some other products I have used.

Not only does it conceal the areas I felt self-conscious about, but it also provides a slight glow to brighten my skin too.

The product comes in three shades – fair, ivory and light beige – and is super blendable, which is ideal if I’m layering on other cosmetic products, yet it is subtle enough when worn on its own.

Plus, it has been reduced in price on Amazon from £7.18 to £6.98.

What the reviews say

Other customers can’t get enough of the creamy concealer too, as it has been hailed a must-buy to cover breakouts, and a “10/10” beauty product.

Here’s what the reviews say:

  • “Works a treat on difficult areas, only need a small amount to cover problem area.”

  • “The best concealer for my skin! 10/10 would definitely recommend.”

  • “How did I cope without this? I’ve got really oily skin even into my mid-50s but this little pot evens out my skin and doesn’t end up under my chin within half an hour. A little goes a long way so don’t be disappointed by the container size.”

  • “I was looking for a pot concealer, and this is perfect, I use a tiny amount and warm it up on my finger, and lightly press it under my eyes, it doesn't set into my fine lines if I use a small amount.”

  • “Used this to cover up awful scabbed scars for a family event. Amazing!!!! Bought two shades and light beige was best for me but incredible value for money and have used again and again.”
