E.L.F 16hr Camo Concealer : Full review & Swatches

This is one of THE best budget concealers I have tried in a long old time, so I wanted to show you more, swatch the shades that I have and tell you why I love it so much.

E.L.F Cosmetics is a fairly new brand for me, although it has been around for 10 years + and reasonably newer to the UK. It’s an affordable makeup brand that is also vegan and cruelty free with products starting from just £2.

The 16hr Camo Concealer is a relatively new to the E.L.F cosmetics family and is your full coverage long wear concealer. It has an oversized doe-foot applicator that males concealing easy and you can apply this concealer under the eyes all over the face and it makes easy work of tackling dark circles, blemishes and redness. You can also use these concealers to highlight and contour the face too although I personally just use them to conceal and brighten.

They do 20 shades of the 16 hr camo concealer, of which I have 9 which I have swatched below for your reference. I am currently using shade Light Beige mainly for all over my face and for under eyes I add a touch of Fair Beige to lift and brighten.

In terms of shades, I think 20 is pretty decent and they cover a lot of shades and tones. Below I do have the palest (fair rose) and the darkest (rich ebony) that they do.

If a full coverage / matte finish isn’t for you then they do their Flawless concealer (& others!) which is a more creamy, hydrating formula. I often prefer a lighter/ hydrating formula but I’m finding you can make the 16hr camo very versatile by the amount you apply and application method.

For under the eyes, if you want it more radiant and light then just dab a bit in with an eye cream ; you can make it work for you in many ways. If you need a really full coverage in an area, then apply straight with the applicator and tap in with fingertips or a makeup sponge. It lasts really well, I don’t need any touch ups in the day and it’s a pretty faultless concealer for me.

They cost just £5 for 0.2oz and I honestly couldn’t think of a better full coverage concealer for this price.

Have you tried this concealer yet? What is your favourite budget concealer?
